GHD Copper Luxe Platinum Styler review and party hairstyles
We're getting well into December now which means it's Christmas party season! Mine always seem to mean leaving the office and heading out somewhere so there's always a quick change in the loosninto something suitable festive.

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?
