ghd Platinum Styler Premium Gift Set

How gorgeous is the new ghd Platinum Styler Premium Gift Set! Its perfect for creating that glam party look. I adore my ghd’s and I have had them for over 10 years, I bought them as a gift to myself before I got married and I have used them almost daily since. I never hesitate to recommend ghd products as the quality is always impeccable and mine have never let me down.

This new luxe styler feels so sleek and lightweight, I often used my standard ghd’s to add a wave / curl to my hair but these actually have a rounded edge which makes achieving soft curls so much easier. They also come with some upgraded features including:-

  • Innovative tri-zone technology of ghd’s Platinum styler means that hair can be beautifully styled without causing any damage.
  • Specially-designed plates that keep the temperature consistent, hair is left 20% shinier and with 50% less breakage
  • Styling is also improved with the Platinum, as the wishbone hinge gives you higher control over waves, curls or poker straight locks.

Inside this limited edition gift set you, of course, get the copper hair styler, a gorgeous copper luxe storage bag which also doubles up as a heat mat (very handy indeed) and two limited edition festive Nails Inc. nail polishes in Fierce Copper and a Copper Luxe.

GHD challenged me to create a party hair look so I thought about what I could create using the new Platinum Styler and decided to go with a simple wave and added some beautiful mettalic / eembellishedhair accessories.

For this look I was 100% chanelling my inner Jennifer Lawrence.

I started by spraying the ghd heat protect spray to damp hair and left my hair to dry naturally, whilst I applied my makeup. That way I find my hair is more glossy and has less flyaways.

Then I took my hair in small sections and straightened each part with the hair styler.

Using the curl spray I spritzed a little all over my hair and twisted a small section of hair on each side of my parting, securing the hair with a cute metallic jewelled clip. This does not have to look neat and tidy, infact I think it looks better a little messy and lived in.

After these sections were in place I used my straighteners to curl the length, not doing it in any order but just putting small sections in at a time to ensure there was a nice amount of movement.

Using the ghd final shine spray I spritz a little from the root to ends all the way round just to give my hair a nice glossy finish.

I then discovered a pot of glitter and stars and what is a party hair look without a little extra sparkle, so I added a little through my parting – this was just a bit of fun but I actually liked how it looked.

The Heat is On

I was over the moon excited to be sent these gorgeous ghd’s from their Style Candy Collection* which was inspired by a retro sweet shop! I’m a faithful fan of ghd hair tools and have had my black ghd’s for over 6 years and have really enjoyed using them. They however are nothing compared to these cute colourful new swish professional stylers. Goodbye old black straighteners — HELLO new ghd IV violet candy collection straighteners.

Of course I decided to try them out on possibly THE hottest day of the year. My hair was massive and unruly, perfect to really put them to the test. My hair is very much naturally wavy and often has a curl to it so I wanted to create a sleek and polished look. I tend to leave my hair to dry naturally and leave the natural wave. OK cue the before photo – no makeup / pj’s and unstyled hair (I look like I need to sleep for a week).


Styling Products

These are the styling products I used. VO5 Miracle Concentrate – I love this and use it everytime I wash my hair. TRESemme Smooth Salon Sleek Straightening Spray with Argan Oil and the TRESemme Smooth Ultra Light Finishing Cream from the same line – I love both of these products and highly recommend them.

The ghd violet professional styler feels so light compared to my old black straighteners, so much sleeker and they have a rounded barrel that would be fab for creating a curl. I found that they glided down my hair with ease. I straighten my hair in small sections as its so thick it just gets an instant wave back if I do too much at a time. These were so easy to use and the curve edge was perfect to styling my fringe. They also heated up to their temperature very fast.

I was impressed by how straight they made my hair and how fast I managed to do it esp as my hair was so frizzy with the heat. The fact that these are violet makes them even more fab to use!

AfterThese are the after shots, I’m very impressed with my lovely violet ghd’s. I think they did a great job even if I did almost overheat in the process. Although I opted for a straight look you can achieve more adventurous styles with these and I’ve seen some bloggers do lovely curls and beach styles. I think I will try something a little more daring next time. When the weather is cooler.

What a cute colour and a great product they get two thumbs up from me. If you’ve used these and have created a fun  style let me know I would love to see it and get some inspiration.

Oh and as it takes me so long to straighten my hair I always drink tea and watch YouTube whilst I am doing it!
