Christmas came a day early in the BBB household when I collected this from the post office depot, delivered from the lovely peeps at GHD HQ.
This the latest Classic Styler from the GHD Scarlet Collection. The styler is the Gold Classic but with gorgeous red plates (which are sparkly!).
The collection comes in a beautiful art-deco inspired box with a gorgeous red satin carry-case and heat mat. There are also 2 clips included for when you're styling away!
One of the first things I noticed when I took mine out the box was how light it was. I thought it was something I was just imagining, but then weighed it against my old stylers (which are a good 5 years old) and there was a noticeable difference. Then, I read the back of the box and whaddya know? This is their 'lighter body' model! So, in summary, these stylers are light!
As someone who mostly uses their stylers to create curls, I was really pleased to see how curved the barrel is, allowing the hair to glide through. The edge of the plates is quite rounded too and I've noticed that these don't create that line where you first apply them, before pulling them through. Will be particular good for those who use straighteners on their fringe.
Most noticeable was how cool the outer casing remains whilst I'm using them. Curling requires a lot of handling of the area around the plates and husband is used to me squeaking F%*K@NG OWWW on a regular basis when I'm doing my hair. But these were cool and a pleasure to use.
If you are sitting with a pile of Christmas Cash, wondering what to spend it all on, then I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend a pair of these. This collection is £129 and with free delivery.
I will have a video up in time for New Year's Eve, demo-ing how to achieve the perfect GHD curl. In the meantime, I'm going back to my dressing table to admire them. Look... how pretty!
