Every since I discovered the beauty of hair straighteners many many moons ago, at the tender age of 13 or 14, I have never been far away from a trusted pair of ghds. Whilst at secondary school they were the hair tool to have and I distinctly remember receiving my first pair one Christmas time and feeling like I, and my hair, could now conquer the world! Having suffered from untameable frizz for so long these were now the answer to all my hair woes. Over ten years old and I still have a couple of pairs of ghds knocking about in my hair tool collection, having upgraded my very first pair for the wide plated version to cope with my increasingly long, curly mane!
Back then we only had but a few blacker than black options to choose from but now we are spoilt for choice when shopping for a new pair of ghd straighteners, with hair tools available in every size, colour and style imaginable! Most recently ghd have launched their limited edition Bird of Paradise range with three vibrant stylers available in a rainbow of bright, tropically-inspired colours, an uber-glossy finish and a matching, exotically-coloured heat resistant mat. This new range features the classic V gold styler in a trio of of graduated hues with advanced ceramic heat technology for enhanced glossiness and versatile styling. The rounded barrel design is perfect for creating all kinds of quick and easy hairstyles, from waves, curls, kinks and flicks as well as, of course, poker straight locks with enviable shine. The straighteners have a easy, swivel lead which means you won’t get in a pickle or tied up whilst curling and twisting the straighteners and they even come with a very handy 30 minute sleep mode which kicks in after half an hour of not being used.
The limited edition V Coral professional straighteners* (£129) are extremely striking with a vibrant contrast of tropical coral hues toned with plumage pink, delivered in an equally eye-catching box. In conjunction with the launch of these new stylers, ghd have joined together with Breakthrough Breast Cancer and will be donating £10 to this brilliant charity from every pair of coral stylers sold which is a great excuse if you are looking for a new pair of straighteners. These stylers really are great, feeling light yet sturdy, and quickly heating up in just a few seconds. I found that straightening my hair took a lot less time than it does usually with some of my older hair straighteners and adding waves and curls was fast and simple with their smooth, rounded barrel design. These new straighteners definitely make hair styling a whole lot quicker, easier and more fun with the gorgeous, limited edition colour and packaging. Do you reach for a pair of ghds when you need to straighten or wave your hair?
