As part of my bid to have luscious locks by the end of the year, I have started to switch up my haircare and now my styling routine too. I have had the new ghd Gold Styler to try out and have been loving creating lots of new hair styles like half up, half down do's and poker straight hair too. I wanted to share with you my favourite look at the moment which you can create with the ghd Gold Styler.
The rounded barrel makes it super easy to create curls and waves if you want to, plus it heats up to 185C in twenty five seconds making it a morning favourite of mine! When straightening, it doesn't give that frizzy look that some other hair straighteners give me, but instead it actually makes my locks looks smooth and healthy. My favourite way to use this right now is to spruce up my ponytail as, if you're like me and suffer with limp, lacklustre hair, then this will be perfect for you.
I start off by washing and drying my hair, but second or even third day hair is good for this style too. I then spritz through a generous amount of heat protectant before I start to style. Depending on the thickness and length of your locks, you may need to part your hair in more or less sections than me, but I tend to go for four. To start, I tie everything from my ears upwards in a top knot, then I curl my hair away from the face to give volume. After I've done this I part my hair at the temples, once again curling my hair using the ghd styler, but this is when I become a little bit rougher with how I style; curler towards and a away from the face to give it a messier look. For me, I tend to do a half up do at this point and it's a great look if you're in a rush. To go the extra step and if I need more volume I curl and style the top of my hair roughly, using a salt spray to add texture too.
I love the way this whole look comes together and because of the ghd Gold Styler, it is super easy to do everyday. My hair looks shiny, healthy and effortless - A must have for the warmer months too as it keeps my hair away from my face, but looks well put together nevertheless.
Have you tried the ghd Gold Styler?
