For years my ghd straightening iron has been my go-to for smoothing my unruly, curly locks. It’s been such a solid companion that people are always surprised when they find out my hair isn’t actually straight. This is thanks to fact that ghd really holds true to what it stands for: good hair day, every day. I know that when I run that iron through my hair, once on each section as opposed to the ultra-damaging irons that require you to go over and over your strands causing heat-damage and breakage, that my style with stay until I wash it away. So when ghd unveiled its newest Curve curling iron collection the mane addict in me was jumping for joy!
The Curve collection, which has already been used on a number of celebrity fans including Nina Garcia, features four unique barrels to achieve both traditional and trendy looks. Wands that give you effortless bouncy beach waves and classic irons to give you that old school Hollywood glam style. They feature ghd’s patented tri-zone® breakthrough ceramic technology that keeps all of ghd’s plates and wands at a constant and consistent temperature of 365°F, the optimal temperature for styling. Cooler that 365°F and you have to go over the hair more than once, hotter than 365°F and you immediately burn the hair, but exactly 365°F, the hair gets a liquid quality allowing it to be malleable and hold a style once it cools. This ensures your style stays and your hair’s health isn’t compromised.
I took the ghd 1 inch classic curl iron ($245) for a spin and was thrilled with the results (see below) It gave my locks a perfect effortless curl that held in the entire weekend! I can’t wait to use it for a more glamorous style for the upcoming holiday season, I know that the other barrels are bound to be on my holiday wishlist.
