GHD Diamond Styler Giveaway & Tutorial: Messy Up Do


When I was contacted on behalf of the hair saviours ghd and asked if I wanted to review/giveaway one of their brand new limited edition Diamond Stylers obvs I jumped at the chance! I'm an avid ghd user and recently upgraded to the scarlet styler, so I thought I'd spread the hair stylin' love and offer a lovely Frolics and Fashion reader the chance to become an addict like me with a wee giveaway (which can be found on the rafflecopter widget at the end of this post).



So a bit of background, since 2004 ghd have been in partnership with Breakthrough Breast Cancer and every year they release a gorgeous pink styler to raise money for the cause. So far a massive £6.7m has been raised, and this year for every styler purchased £10 will be donated towards cancer research. I think it's such an incredible partnership and I love seeing a brand I'm so fond of doing some good, you can actually read more about the ten year partnership here.


How I Use Them

When I got my first pair of ghd's back in my first year of uni (all the bars and clubs turned my hair into a frizzy mess, student loan well spent!) I used them purely for straightening, it wasn't till a good 2 years later that I started experimenting with curls, waves and up do's and I began to love them even more. 
So I've put together a little tutorial that the winner may be able to have a bash at, in total it takes just under ten minutes and it's great for masking post topknot and post night out hair. You can also find more styles created by ghd here : )




The Giveaway

To get your paws on your very own pink diamond styler you just need to enter with the rafflecopter widget below
