The ghd Festival Collection has launched and I’ve been lucky enough to be sent the Gold Professional Styler. I love my ghds – this is now my fourth set. I started with the Scarlet ones, and used them to death and have since added two others. I’ve tried other brands, but nothing beats ghd in my opinion.
With my Twitter feed full of mentions of Coachella, it’s clear festival season has arrived. Personally, you couldn’t pay me to go to a festival these days – I’m feeling far too old for that – but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want pretty hair.
Be the trend setting queen spotted at this years most iconic summer event, with the vibrant new festival collection from ghd! Inspired by the electric atmosphere and colourful adventure of global festivals, we bring you a premium collection with a party spirit all of its own.
Summer festivals present the perfect stage to let your brightest colours shine; so dig out your shorts, grab the glitter and go all out with a rainbow-dipped styler or hair dryer.

Your favourite styling tools, featuring cutting-edge technology and promising salon quality results, now with a kaleidoscopic makeover.
Take on the scene with our premium styler, the ghd platinum+ in a free-spirited spectrum of glistening hues.

Get mistaken for a headline act this summer season with the festival collection from ghd.
I last worked with ghd two years ago when they sent me the Platinum Tropic Sky styler, so I was excited to work with them again. Once again they have delivered with a very pretty product and they don’t disappoint in terms of performance either.
First up is speed. These heat up in just 25 seconds, which is great. My very first straighteners took almost a minute to get hot and I don’t have the patience for that. They also have universal voltage so if you’re going abroad on holiday, or to a festival, you can take these with you without worrying (although you will need a travel adaptor).
The design of these is nice and sleek with the rounded barrel and they’re not heavy or awkward to handle at all. There’s dual-zone technology that features two next generation heat sensors. These sensors ensure that the heat is kept at a constant of 185 degrees (celsius) for optimum styling. If the temperature was higher then the hair would become damaged, but if it was any cooler you just wouldn’t get the styling performance.
Now I’m not one of those people who forgets to turn my ghds off or unplug them, but I know sometimes people just forget. Well don’t panic as there’s an automatic sleep mode which turns the styler off after 30 minutes of non-use. They also come with a co-ordinating heat resistant bag and you get versatile and snag-free styling. The smooth, contoured floating plates glide through your hair effortlessly. Frizz is banished and the shine on your hair afterwards is insane.
At £139.00 for the styler, they’re not cheap but you really do get what you pay for. The quality is high, they’re reliable and the results are always good. Even the worst hair day can become a good hair day with the Gold Festival Collection Styler.
