Pink, pink as far as the eye can see! October is international breast cancer awareness month, and already plenty of brands out there are turning pink in order to raise funds for various breast cancer research and support foundations.
ghd‘s new limited edition pink cherry blossom styler actually ties into a pretty neat little circuitous moment for me, hair-wise.
You see, I’ve had short hair pretty much forever. When I decided to grow my hair out for the first time in my adult life, I was staggeringly naive about things like hot styling tools (and yes, I still am!) and had no idea about what would be good for my hair and what would damage it. I bought a cheap hot iron and thought that everything that entitled - unevenly heated metal plates, crispy fried hair, the works – was par for the course. Eventually someone mentioned that no, that wasn’t normal, and I should look at investing in a decent hair iron like a – at the time brand new to Australia – ghd hot styler. Eventually I saved up for one and ended up getting one of the first limited edition pink charity stylers from ghd, a candy pink iron with black plates. Brilliant! It didn’t fry my hair like old hair iron, but rather left it silky smooth with zero crispiness. What a revelation! My old styler has lasted me well all these years but I’ve been making some noise lately about wanting to update to a newer model.
So! This is a long and roundabout way of telling you that it’s getting to that pink time of the year again, and ghd have produced a pink Gold Classic styler in a limited edition Cherry Blossom design. It features candy pink plates and pink hardware highlights with a matching heat-resistant satin storage bag sassed up with embroidered cherry blossoms. It has all the features of a regular Gold Glassic styler including a 2.7mm swivel cord, ceramic plates that heat up to 220°c, sleep mode, universal voltage and a two year manufacturers guarantee. Twenty dollars from each pink Cherry Blossom styler sold in Australia and New Zealand is donated to The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and National Breast Cancer Foundation.
ghd pink Cherry Blossom styler is AU$289 with free delivery from ghd, and available from all good salons.
