*The GHD Gold Styler was gifted to me for this post, however all opinions remain 100% honest.
I’ve been using GHD hair straighteners ever since I can remember – there’s never been another hair styling brand that has come close to it, so you can imagine my excitement when I had an email from them a few weeks ago.
I’m always talking about being truthful and real as a blogger – accepting collaborations/gifted products if they’re products you’d genuinely go out and buy, and this is the perfect example of that. You only have to search through my haircare posts to see GHD are featured in most. GHD reached out to me and offered to send me a product from their newest range – the Festival Collection.
The GHD Gold Professional Styler
Possibly the prettiest GHD product I’ve ever owned, the Gold Professional Styler is for smooth and sleek looks. The round barrel means you can straighten, or if you’ve got the nack for it – curl your hair too.
The straight and sleek look
On a day-to-day basis, I use my GHD’s (a rose-gold pair from about 4-5 years ago), to straighten. I have naturally straight hair, so often all I need is 10 minutes to straighten out any kinks. The Gold Professional Styler has stepped right in, and has done just as brilliant job.
What I love about this styler is how quick it takes to heat up – press the button and within 25 seconds the chime will sound to let you know it’s reached optimum temperature (185 degrees celcius!!). Another great feature is that after 30 minutes of no-use, the styler will automatically turn off. No more worrying about whether you switched your straighteners off when you’re out and about!
The beachy curls look
From time to time, I also like to give my hair some beachy curls, and the styler makes this job so much easier. Despite trying every curler under the sun, I’ve always found that using my GHD straighteners gave me the nicest result when curling. The round barrel of the Gold Styler makes it easy to wrap hair around and gives a nice smooth curl at the end of it – all without burning any fingers!
The GHD Gold Profressional Styler has very quickly become my go-to when it comes to any kind of hair styling. Not only does the fun design look gorgeous on my dressing table, but it delivers the style results every single time.
