Breaking news: my hair just got a whole lot better – thanks to the new ghd Curve Thin Curling Wand – just launched in the UK. Its USP? With an extra long and thin barrel, it is honestly so easy to achieve long-lasting curls, in super-quick time. What’s more, there’s no extreme heat required – making styling your hair, super easy and healthy.
The new model has a 14mm thin barrel – just wrap strands of hair around it (thin pieces for super curls and larger sections for looser curls) – and so you can create [tighter, if you wish] curls that will remain in place for up to 24 hours. It also uses the optimum styling temperature of 185 degrees – which doesn’t damage hair – and a speedy 30 second heat-up time, so you can achieve curls with minimum effort – in fact, in just three seconds.
Whether you want to transform straight hair with a nonchalant, beachy wave look (yes, please!) or bouncy curls (so on trend), or simply to enhance naturally-curly hair (be gone frizz!), the new wand with its longer barrel means that styling for your own personal style has never been easier.
Like all of ghd’s curlers and straighteners, this has an advanced ceramic coating applied to the thin barrel so hair is left smooth, with no fly-away strands, and with a high shine finish. No matter your hair type or texture, you can create high definition, healthy-looking curls with less damage. Having fallen out of love with my assortment of stylers and tongs (too tiresome or takes long to use), this really is my hair saviour.
I have found it really easy to use, the wand is lightweight and ergonomic so it is easy to move around and deal with the back of your hair. For those of us who tend to forget to turn off their stylers, this also comes with an automatic sleep mode, so it shuts off after 60 minutes of non-use (so no panicked running home to make sure your dressing table is not burning!).
It also has a built-in safety stand to protect surfaces when it is set down during styling. Making styling even easier, I love the protective cool tip and styling glove so you can really get to grips and control your style.
The ghd Curve Thin Wand is available on ghdhair.com at £139.
