Hadid Sisters at Missoni AW18 Get The Look


International stylist Anthony Turner celebrated individuality and different textures giving undone, messy and raw looks at the Missoni AW18 show using ghd. Showcasing women and men at their most comfortable and cool, Anthony Turner helped prove that imperfectly perfect is real and achievable. Anthony created a look that reflected the fashion and beauty industry’s current fascination with the individuality, building upon each models own hair texture rather than creating something rigid and uniform. Far from being considered undone or messy, raw, lived-in textures were revitalized and celebrated.

“We’re not making all of the hair look exactly the same, it’s not a generic look and instead it’s more celebratory of what the models naturally have,” - Anthony Turner

Get The Look:

1. Prep hair with ghd total volume foam ($24) for hold and to add shine to the hair

2. Dry the hair with ghd air hairdryer ($199), using your hand in a scrunching motion to add texture as you dry

3. For smooth coiffed hair, work the ghd curve classic curl iron ($199) and ghd curve soft curl iron ($199), depending on the hair length, to add kinks and bends in different directions for an imperfect finish

4. Smooth out the ends using the NEW ghd gold professional styler ($199) where needed in a soft pressing motion.

ghd products are available online at ghd hair and select locations around the globe!

TREND REPORT: Tommy x Gigi Spring 2018 Show



At the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2018 Milan Fashion Week, Celebrity Stylist Eugene Souleiman created the “Tommy Girl” hairstyle using the ghd air hairdryer, curve soft curl iron and the NEW gold professional styler.

Show: Tommy Hilfiger 

Inspiration: Modern Athleticism - Eugene Souleiman creates understated cool at Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2018. For the final Tommy x Gigi show, Eugene Souleiman wanted to create a look that completely embodied the “Tommy Girl” fusing American heritage with modern athleticism.

“This is a very modern hairstyle, it’s been done with haste but still appears styled but natural. It’s a beautiful look with lots of texture. It encompasses the Tommy lifestyle, young, fun and free but with a bit of an edge. It’s about having an idea and tailoring the concept of the idea to suit the individual and her natural hairstyle, embracing their individuality and making them feel sexy.” -Eugene Souleiman

The Key Technique:
  1. The first step in creating this look was to comb the hair to reveal a center parting which is flattering for everyone.
  2. Each side was then spritzed with a light mist of EIMI Ocean Spritz to add texture and restyled using EIMI Sugar Lift.
  3. Next Eugene rolled the hair into two soft buns (each side of the head) and diffused for a couple of minutes using ghd air hairdryer ($199).
  4. Hair was then left to cool for a couple of seconds before being unraveled. EIMI Dry ME was then added to the roots and styled with hands to let air into it and give it a rawer more voluminous texture that was natural yet un-styled at the same time.
  5. To enhance movement the ghd curve soft curl iron ($199) was used on random sections of the hair. Eugene explains: “What we’re doing is something quite different, to get a looser, more natural feeling to the hair we’re using the ghd curve soft curl iron, wrapping hair around it and as we’re taking the hair away we’re stretching it so that it’s more of an “S” curl, less opulent, more understated. It’s more of a modern style, you’re still adding a bit of structure to the hair but it’s more relaxed.”
  6. To finish the look, Eugene added micro braids to random sections of the hair and gently clamped along the end of the braid with the NEW ghd gold professional styler ($199) to create a lightly crimped, dual texture.

75th Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Report


The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held on January 7 at The Beverly Hilton, brought out the stars. Each celebrating and each sharing a united message! With the HFPA on hand their message was heard in Hollywood style. And style is what we have to share with our readers. Below are looks for some of the most stunning women of Hollywood. So flip through our slideshow to Get The Look for Caitriona Balfe, Dove Cameron, Jessica Biel, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, and Susan Kelechi.



The other star of the evening was the ghd Gold 18k Styler! The new gold standard is here, and has officially made its dazzling 18K red carpet debut at the 75th Annual Golden Globes. To celebrate ghd’s best-selling gold styler having a sleek new makeover and technical upgrade, celebrity stylists Adir Abergel and Bryce Scarlett both used a very special version to create Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan and Jessica Biel’s award-winning looks.

With only six available in the country, this ultra-luxe version can’t be bought. Good news: the consumer-friendly version is coming... details below! 

Updated features include:
  • Dual-zone technology for premium performance
  • Proven to deliver sleeker, smoother and healthier hair
  • An improved heat-up time of only 25 seconds
  • A modernized design for snag-free styling



Celebrity Stylist Bryce Scarlett used the ghd Gold 18k Styler to give Margot soft, elongated waves with a contemporary edge.

“What I love most about ghd’s new Gold 18k Styler is the sleek design and curved edges allow you to bend into the hair so smooth and seamlessly that you can easily create any shape you want without any creasing or snagging,” says Bryce.

Angling the styler vertically, he wrapped one-inch pieces around it all going in the same direction to create a uniform look, going over the ends for a modern finish. “What makes Margot’s hair look so modern tonight is the sharpened ends and the new ghd Gold 18k Styler was key for getting that extra-sharp, almost pointed, finish that made all the difference here,” Bryce says.

Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergel used the ghd Gold 18k Styler to give a silky-smooth finish to Jessica Biel’s low pony for a look that felt classic, with a modern twist. “I used the new ghd Gold 18k Styler to smooth out the cuticle and lock in the shiny texture,” says Adir. “It glides through the hair like no other iron I have ever tried before and distributes the perfect amount of heat to hair to set a style."

For Saoirse Ronan, on the other hand, it was all about mixing masculine structure and feminine texture, so Adir used the ghd 18k Gold Styler to add shape to the hair that gave the updo more volume and texture throughout. “This tool provides incredible versatility with your styles and textures whether you want to go straight or wavy—and no matter what look you choose, the results will be super shiny,” says Adir.

The ghd Gold Styler is launching in February and will be available at ghdhair.com/us for $199.

Olivia Culpo’s Perfectly Imperfect Waves


Olivia Culpo hit the town with pals Shanina Shaik and Dev Windsor to celebrate the launch of ghd’s new Nocturne Holiday Collection. Her outfit was spot-on, her makeup was on-point, but what had everyone’s head turning was her uber-chic bedhead waves.



ghd ambassador and Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan gives us the how-to:

Step 1: Prep hair with a volumizing mousse then blow dry with the ghd nocturne air hairdryer ($199) to give the hair volume and a little natural texture.

Step 2: Create a clean middle part then attach clip-in extensions if needed for added length.

Step 3: Section the hair horizontally in 1-inch sections then, taking 1-inch wide pieces, create an s-pattern wave with the ghd nocturne platinum styler ($249), alternating turning the styler upwards and downwards.

Pro-Tip: Brick lay the s-pattern on each piece by alternating the bevels with the iron, but leave the ends straight – this keeps the look modern and gives it more of an undone feel.

Step 4: Spray a little dry shampoo to rough up the texture throughout then run a small amount of pomade through ends. Finish with a light mist hairspray.

Step 5: Give everyone hair envy!
