Simple Festive Party Hair in 10 Minutes or Less - #GlitzTheSeason with ghd
Ghd set me a challenge to come up with a festive party hairstyle, so I thought I'd make a really quick and easy one that you can do al desko in under ten minutes.
I started by straightening my hair all over with the gorgeous Copper Luxe Platinum Styler (can we just take a minute to appreciate this little beauty!). Before getting going, I sectioned it off and gave it a liberal spritz of the ghd heat protector spray - this stuff is so good at helping prevent heat damage but doesn't weigh down my fine hair. Yay! The Platinum Styler also uses special tri-zone technology that helps to give 50% less hair breakage and 20% more shine to your hair, which for someone who loves a straight look like me, is such a great benefit.
After smoothing my hair with the styler, I could have just left it and gone for a super sleek look but I wanted to change things up a bit for a party ( you could always do this first step in the morning and then complete the rest at work).
I took a backcombing brush and used it to add a little bit of height at my roots around the crown area at the back of my head. Not too much, but just enough to lift it a little and stop the finished style looking too flat.
Then I took a small section from the each side of the front of my hair and pulled this around the back to create a mini ponytail. The backcoming means that there's plenty of root lift left to support this - just secure in place with a clear elastic band.
To add a bit more detail and get on the embellishment trend, I secured a pretty copper bow clip to one side and voila! All done. It's a really easy to create look in just a few minutes.
The Copper Luxe Platinum styler is so easy and quick to use and I love the fact that ghd are clearly getting in on everyone's love for all things copper! It also comes with a heat proof bag and two limited edition Nails Inc polishes as part of this limited edition gift set.
Ghd are also giving away lots of fabulous prizes - one every Saturday in fact, right up to 7th January! Simply take a photo or video with your embellished hair style, upload to Instagram and tag it with #GlitzTheSeason to enter. You'll need to be following @ghdhair to qualify.
I'd love to know what you think of my easy party hairstyle. What will you be doing for your Christmas party look this year?
