NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Hair Upgrade: ghd Wonderland Professional V Styler

 A few weeks back the cable to my beloved pair of ghd's officially gave up the ghost after 6 months of muddling through and holding the wire at awkward angles in order to straighten my hair, they were just shy of 10 years old (scary when I realise that's older than my mental age)! After muddling through without them for a few weeks I was incredibly lucky to be offered the chance to try out the new ghd's Wonderland Professional V Styler, and after a brief appearance on Instagram there were a fair few questions from you guys, so I thought it best to get right down to it.

The first thing I noticed with the new styler (and I'm totally late to the party on this one) is the new shape. Back in the day when my old v styler was brand new, it had no curve or bend to the handle. It was literally a V, the new stylers are all slightly curved, so if you're upgrading, it may take some time to get used to the feel of this. One thing I really love is the fact that they now make a little beeping noise once they're hot enough (and they heat up far quicker than the old models). Back in the day they also came with no heat proof mat/bag/cover what so ever, and now the stylers box has a complete set.

How to they compare when styling? I didn't expect them to be any different, but they're actually much smoother and really glide through the hair. As always you can also produce curls with the styler too (if you want to see me briefly curling my hair with ghds then click here), now i'm sporting a shorter cut, my loose waves are less of an option, so I took to the GHD hair page for inspiration to see what I could whip up. The loose playful waves by Hollie Rose Clark looked perfect for all hair lengths, so I gave it a whirl and for my first attempt with new stylers and a new hair length I think it worked out rather nicely.

The main question you guys asked? Are they worth it? I am the worlds biggest ghd fan, with curly frizzy hair they're the only styler that has ever been able to fully tame my mane. I also see them as an investment, with one pair lasting almost 10 years they more than make up for what you pay when you break it down to cost per use. I also think the limited edition wonderland set is particularly beautiful, with it's blue, teal and lilac iridescent finish, if you're going to invest it's nice to have something different that not everyone else will have.

  3. Love the look of these, however I already have the large GHD straighteners and they are still going strong so I can't justify getting another pair no matter how pretty they look!
    Have a great Christmas Eve Suzie!

  5. I freaking LOVE my GHD! I've had mine for about five or so years and it's still going strong. I was never super interested in purchasing a new one, until this one came out though because it's SO BEAUTIFUL! Seriously, can't get over that beautiful duochrome. I'm a sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing. Having said that though, my GHD is a little rough when I use it to curl my hair (I've compared to one of my friend's GHDs), so it may still be worth the investment in the long run... that's how I will justify buying this!

  13. I'm really looking into getting a pair of GHDs. I want to get one tool that will replace my curling iron and straightening iron and I think this might be it!

  15. My old styler is getting on a bit but when it comes to replacing it I'll stay loyal to GHD - they're simply the best, so good to know the new models have been upgraded and improved :) xx
