Although I had an AMAZING time last year at Vogue’s London Fashion Night Out with my fellow fashionista, Priyanka Gill, because of recent events, which I wrote about here, I was not really in the mood to go to this year’s shindig, as amazing as it all sounded.
I did, however make it to ghd‘s first ever pop-up salon, which set up its hair angels in the ArtSpace Galleries in Mayfair’s Maddox Street. The gorgeous white space was converted for one night only into an exclusive hair salon, where Sally of ghd transformed my sorry looking locks into beautiful curls, bursting with movement and flirty fun.
A quick wash was followed by a smoothing blow-dry with the new must-have hair-dryer recently launched by ghd, the ghd air and a swoosh of the Root Lift Spray.
The hairdryer’s ionic technology adds negative ions to the airflow which attach themselves to the hair shaft and cancel out the positive ions which are responsible for the static, frizz and flyaway hair effect. Result? Smoother, shinier, more glossy hair.
It’s got variable heat and power controls, and a cold shot button to “set” your style but best of all, it’s super light, so it won’t tire your arms out as you battle to blow-dry your hair. It’s not cheap at £99, but if it gives a salon style result, just think of what you could save on salon blow-drys!
After blow-drying, Sally showed me how to create gorgeous loose curls using the straightener, a technique that has, up till now, totally foxed me. I’m definitely going to have another go now that I’ve learnt it straight from the pro!
So although I couldn’t go to this year’s FNO, my hair certainly looked the part!
Are you a fan of the ghd tools? Do you have any tips for me on getting those elusive curls?
