I'm all for a bit of texture in my hair, which means that protecting it and keeping it sleek isn't really top of my list.  So when the people from ghd kindly gifted me the ghd Style & Protect Set and asked me to have a go at creating spring hairstyles with it, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try and change my ways.  The kit comes with everything you need; a big paddle brush (which I love), sectioning clips and a couple of ghd's styling sprays

I went to my sister (who's also a talented hairdresser) for help with this.  Seeing as the set contains the Straight & Smooth spray, we started off with this and figured a sleek straight look should really be done.  We got rid of any knots with the brush, straightened it and, hey presto!  Enter my Iggy Azalea poker straight hair...I hadn't realised how long my hair had got!  Finished off with a spritz of the Final Shine Spray and this super-easy look was done.

After that we tried an updo, which is my favourite of the two looks.  We started with a simple fishtail plait and then, taking inspiration from Luxy Hair, twisted it back on itself to make the updo.  It took a fair few kirby grips to secure, but I love the different take on the usual fishtail braid and think it looks really sleek and polished.

What do you think of super-straight locks?  Or will you be giving the updo a go?

    1. Arrrr layers are the devil when it comes to a fishtail braid. No matter how long my hair gets, there always seems to be sections that just won't stay in! x

  2. Both of these different styles look great! I can't remember the last time I had poker straight hair like that, I'm far too lazy and messy normally but I'd love to do it just to see how long my hair actually is these days haha!
    Can your sister come over and do my hair every day please? I'd love a plait like that :)

    1. It was quite a revelation to have a professional doing it...I feel like I finally had a weheartit-worthy hair do! And yes, straightening my hair was great for seeing how far I'd come with the attempts to encourage it to grow! x
