NEW YORK CITY. FEBRUARY 2018.

THOUGHTS / HOW SLEEK DOES MY HAIR LOOK RIGHT NOW?

 

NOW THAT NEW YORK FASHION WEEK IS SADLY OVER, I WANTED TO REFLECT ON THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MADE MY AMAZING EXPERIENCE THAT MUCH BETTER.

ASIDE FROM PUTTING TOGETHER THE PERFECT OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES FOR EACH DAY AND SHOW, I HAD TO ENSURE MY HAIR WAS LOOK SLEEK AND SHINY - ENTER THE ghd GOLD STYLER – THE ABSOLUTE BEST HAIR TOOL ONE COULD WISH FOR, HONESTLY.

ANYONE THAT KNOWS ME, KNOWS I SIMPLY CAN’T GO A DAY WITHOUT A HAIR STYLER, BUT THE NEW ghd GOLD IS ON ANOTHER LEVEL. BY MY SIDE FOR THE ENTIRETY OF NYFW, I USED THE STYLER TO CREATE A FEW DIFFERENT HAIR LOOKS TO MATCH EACH OUTFIT - WHETHER THAT WAS SLEEK AND STRAIGHT, UNDONE AND WAVY OR SWEPT UP IN A SLEEK PONYTAIL – I WAS ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK EFFORTLESSLY USING THE ghd GOLD.

 

THE SLEEK & STRAIGHT DO’

 
 

I CREATED THIS LOOKS FIRSTLY BY BRUSHING OUT MY HAIR THOROUGHLY TO GIVE IT A SLEEK FINISH AROUND THE HEAD. THEN A SPRAY OF HEAT PROTECT SPRAY ONTO MY HAIR FIRST (SAFETY FIRST!) AND THEN THE ghd GOLD STYLER, MOVING IT THROUGH MY HAIR FROM ROOT TO TIP TO ACHIEVE THE SLEEK, STRAIGHT LOOK. BONUS? I ONLY HAD TO TAKE THE STYLER THROUGH EACH SECTION OF MY HAIR ONCE, INSTEAD OF REPEATING OVER AND OVER AGAIN, SAVING ME OH SO MUCH TIME!

 

THE EFFORTLESS WAVE

FOR THIS LOOK, I USED A HEAT PROTECT SPRAY AND ALSO SPRITZED A LIGHT MIST OF SEA-SALT SPRAY TO ADD TEXTURE TO MY HAIR, STYLING IT USING MY HANDS TO GIVE IT A MORE RAW/VOLUMINOUS TEXTURE. NEXT, I USED THE ghd GOLD STYLER TO WAVE MY HAIR BY STARTING AT THE MIDDLE AND PULLING DOWN AND OUT WHILST TWISTING THE BARREL OF THE STYLER. ADDING AN EFFORTLESSLY SOFT WAVES TO MY HAIR THAT WAS MORE RELAXED. I THEN FINISHED THE LOOK WITH A TOUCH OF HAIRSPRAY TO HOLD THE WAVE IN PLACE FOR THE DAY, BECAUSE NYS WINTERS CAN BE UNFORGIVING ON THE HAIR!

THE ghd GOLD STYLER IS DESIGNED TO USE SAFER-FOR-HAIR HEAT WHICH MEANS THE HEALTH OF MY HAIR ISN’T SABOTAGED (SUPER IMPORTANT WHEN I USE IT EVERY SINGLE DAY!). THE TWO HEAT SENSORS GIVE THE PLATES A MORE CONSISTENT TEMPERATURE WHICH BASICALLY MEANS THAT YOUR HAIR CAN BE STYLED FASTER AND IS SMOOTHER AND LESS LIKELY TO COME OUT OF ITS STYLE – AGAIN, PERFECT FOR THE UNPREDICTABLE NYC WINTER!

 

GHD DELIVERS GOOD HAIR DAYS NO MATTER WHERE IN THE WORLD YOU MAYBE (thank goodness for that!)

 

I’VE BEEN ON THE MOVE A LOT LATELY AND WAS ECSTATIC WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THE ghd GOLD HAS UNIVERSAL VOLTAGE AND  A PROTECTIVE PLATE GUARD FOR SAFER STORAGE WHEN YOU’RE TRAVELLING. THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR ME AS I’VE BEEN MOVING AROUND FROM NZ TO LA TO NY AND BACK TO LA! IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS!

MORAL OF THE STORY? NOTHING BEATS A GOOD HAIR DAY.

ghd MADE MY NYFW PREP SIMPLE AND EASY. STYLING MY HAIR EACH DAY WAS SO QUICK AND EASY, AND THE RESULTS WERE ALWAYS FLAWLESS. MY ghd GOLD WAS MY TRUSTED COMPANION THROUGHOUT AND I CAN’T WAIT TO TAKE IT WITH ME ON MANY MORE.

A LITTLE SOMETHING

INSIDE MY ghd GOLD BOX, WAS A SHINY GOLDEN TICKET. UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION (A GOOGLE SEARCH) I FOUND OUT THAT MY TICKET GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO WIN 1 OF 3 ghd GOLD 18K LIMITED EDITION STYLERS, MADE WITH REAL GOLD AND WORTH OVER $3,000.

NOW, WHILE I UNFORTUNATELY DIDN’T WIN THIS, ANYONE ELSE THAT PURCHASES A NEW ghd GOLD STYLER CAN. JUST FIND YOUR GOLD TICKET IN THE BOX AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TAKING YOU TO GHDHAIR.COM/NZ AND YOU COULD WIN – BEST OF LUCK BABETTES!
