Festive Hair with ghd // #GlitzTheSeason

When it comes to hair, with an exception of colour, I am pretty unadventurous. I still haven't mastered the perfect curl, or elegant chignon; I can only about master the art of straightening. When the babes over at ghd tasked me with creating a glam look as part of the brand's #GlitzTheSeason campaign, I was a little bit like whaaaaaaat me? I used it as a great excuse to practise doing something different with my hair as opposed to the usual straightened look, and without tooting my own horn, I was quite happy with how it turned out. I was sent an amazing gift full of copper luxe goodies, including glitzy rose gold hair accessories, the Copper Luxe Platinum Styler, ghd hair products, and some matching Nails inc nail polishes (you can purchase the styler and nail polishes as a festive gift). I'd never used the platinum styler before, only the classic ghds, and I must say that these are so much nicer to use, especially for curling.

The ghd Platinum Styler features copper sparkly floating plates and matching wishbone hinge for greater control. Each styler contains the brand's patented tri-zone technology, which uses three sensors in each plate to maintain a safer-for-hair heat - I love them! 

I decided to do a half up half down look, putting the top half into a bun. I then curled the bottom section with the straighteners after using the ghd Curl Hold Spray and ghd Heat Protect Spray. The only annoying thing is my hair doesn't hold a curl very well, which I think is down to the excess dying, but I kind of liked how they dropped out into loose waves.

I then added some glitter to the bun and added this gorgeous rose gold and pearl embellished head band. I am not sure if this was meant to be worn the other way around, but I kinda quite like it like this. I'd definitely recreate this for a Christmas/festive party. The only thing to watch out for with headbands like this is that my hair got so tangled in all the little leaves. I got myself in a little bit of trouble trying to take this out aha! Just imagine the headband hanging from one side of my head ;)
