If you have been following me on Snapchat @culturewithcoco, you may have found out that I attended the ghd Azores Blogger event a few weeks ago, showing off the new limited edition ghd Azores hair straighteners out now. I met the most wonderful girls and we had an amazing time there getting our hair did. I have never been one to splurge on hair tools, but now that I have tested this outstanding straightener out, I can’t wait to share the details with you below.
I waited to be on holiday to show of my holiday hair and since I have been vacationing in Nice, Cannes and Monaco the last couple of days, I was so excited to shoot these pictures and share with you my pick of the lot. Under the motto “The paradise lies in your hands”, I was allowed to pick one of the beautiful three tropical themed hair straightener stylers which have been inspired by the Azores Islands in Portugal. Their gorgeous colours are perfect for the warmer seasons and will ensure you travel in style whilst you jet set off this Summer! The hair straighteners themselves come in three exclusive shades including Serene Pearl, Atlantic Jade and Marine Allure, to pay homage to their source of inspiration. They will only be available for Spring and Summer 2016, so make sure you get on your hands (and hair!) on this gorgeous collection before it sells out!
What I have noticed while straightening my hair with my new heating tool, is how fast I can actually straighten my hair. I have had problematic times straightening my bi-cultural prominent curls. This straightener heats up in less than half a minute, giving the most beautiful signal once it’s ready to go. I love that it doesn’t have a heat regulator. I tend to crank up my curling iron and straighteners to the highest degree because I feel that I need it, here I don’t think twice, it does to its pre-set temperature and works surprisingly well. I can definitely recommend this beauty which of course is an investment, but 100% worth it. I will be using it in a new hair tutorial the upcoming week so feel free to check in and see the magic for yourself.
