ghd are currently doing amazing hairstyling sessions, at HOB Salons, with their new ghd Gold Classic Stylers. I pretty much can't live without my ghds, and believe they are the best invention ever, so couldn't wait when I was given the opportunity to try out the styling session.
For the month of December, ghd are doing these fun in-store styling sessions, where you can pick styles from the 'Belle of the Ball' range. There are 5 looks available and they are all glamorous and perfect for the party season.
Yesterday, I went over to the Camden branch of HOB Salons and was very warmly welcomed by their team. The lovely and talented Holly was my stylist for the afternoon and she was fantastic. When asked which up-do I'd like, I decided to pick the 'Screen Siren', which is a sassy pin up, with soft curls.
Firstly, I had my hair washed and blow-dried, and then the real styling began. Using the ghd's, my hair was curled, section by section, until I had well defined curls all over. Usually when I curl my hair with straightners, I get stray bits and pull a bit of hair, but the ghds were so smooth and easily curled the hair.
Next, the top of my hair was sectioned to one side, while the sections below were rolled and pinned up underneath.
Finally, the hair at the top was smoothed and hairsprayed, and then pinned up as well, while my finge had volume added to it. It actually felt really good to have my fringe out of my eyes.
I absolutely loved my hair do!! I've never pinned up my hair like that and it was such a different look for me. Because it was something new, I instantly felt a lot more glamorous and really confident and pretty.
It seriously did look incredible. On my way home from the station, I was even stopped by a stranger who complimented my hair.
When I got home, I decided to add a hairband to it. Isn't my one adorable? It was my Secret Snowflake gift from the British Style Bloggers Secret Santa. It just went so well with the hair style.
My mission, after I got home, was to make some kind of plans so that I could show off my do. Luckily enough, my neighbour called up, asking if I wanted to go to the local pub quiz, and I jumped at the chance. And I got more compliments at the pub as well.
I definitely recommend that you go for one of the 'Belle of the Ball' looks at the HOB Salons. They are £28, and can be booked in Camden, Baker Street, or Leeds. The HOB Team is fantastic: they are all very nice and know how to look after hair, and the looks are perfect for any Christmas party. Your stylist will also talk you through the style so that you can re-create it at home as well.
And the new ghd Gold Classic sttyler will make a perfect present. If you've tried ghds, you''ll know how fantastic their ranges are. This styler is sleek and glides through hair effortlessly to give a really smooth and shiny finish.
What do you think of the new hairstyle? It's definitely something I will be trying at home over the Christmas period.
