THE PERFECT BEACH WAVE



 The new ghd Curve (link here) is already one of my new favourite hair styling tools. My mam bought this little beauty for her birthday whilst there was discount available at Harvey Nichols. Given that she's got thin hair, she's always on the hunt for that new, perfect way to volumise her hair. The wand has a clever oval shaped barrel which allows you to create thick, impressive waves and it does almost exactly what it says on the tin, I am in love. This reminds me of the Babyliss curling wand, but obviously the price is a lot more expensive, but it also comes with a lot more perks. The wand takes literally five seconds to heat up, so if you're in a rush and you want a few curls before work, you'd have it in seconds. It also, thank god, has an automatic sleep mode after thirty minutes, which I believe is a brilliant feature.. I'm not a gal who goes out of her way to burn a house down, but I'm a gal who'll be well into her busy day and it'll dawn on her that she may or may not of left the curlers on, and will continue to panic that I've set the house on fire. Anything that can put my forgetful mind at ease is a must! 

Many apologies about my bad case of resting bitch face.

And the result, voila! I didn't go all out with this wand, I'm not a full head of curly hair kind of gal I like to go for a more messy, barely styled look.. so this took literally around 5-6 minutes (and I have ridiculously thick hair). You can alter between wrapping round big pieces of hair, which it has no problems curling, and little pieces so you get a more 'natural' look. My curls lasted all day, as I'm currently writing this in my natural habitat with a cup of tea the day after, they're still here too. The verdict? ghd are always going to be a little pricey, this number coming in at £120 but this wand compared to the Babyliss is better by far, it's definitely going to be used a lot. That combined with a two year guarantee is also a justifiable reason for buying. I'm just thinking of ways I can sneak it to uni with me without my mam knowing haha, thanks for reading!

  3. I love how you did your hair and GHD is such a well known but expensive brand, wish I could afford it.

  5. This looks lovely.. I've been on the hunt for the perfect tool to create a loose/beachy curl instead of the tight curls that come with most wands.. May have to pop this onto the wishlist! x

  6. I love this hairstyle, I always try to create it with my babyliss curling wand but I can never perfect it. I think I might have to treat myself to these! x

  8. I have been on the hunt for something like this, as I always tend to reach for my hair straighteners to curl my hair and then they just fall out so quickly. You created a lovely look as well.

  21. I'm always on the hunt for a new curler, I currently have a tapered Remington Pearl wand that's quite thin so it's better for smaller, tighter curls. I do own a Babyliss large barrelled wand but it doesn't work with my hair quite as well - the curls don't last the same and despite it heating to the same temperature, I have to do it in really thin sections to get a nice wave (My hair is generally quite frizzy but not overly thick) This sounds amazing, I just need to find the money now.. haha >_<
