“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you are going to mess it up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up… So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe

Hairstyles From GHD

Since putting together this post, my hair has changed a bit dramatically (photos to come). But prior to my new cut, I had a pretty consistent look – loose,  long curls. So when ghd asked if I’d like to try a straightener, I was so interested! I wore my hair straight to a White House Correspondents’ Dinner event (see here) and loved it. But I also loved learning that I could get curls easily with the straightener!

I started with straight, somewhat dirty hair and rolled pieces of hair around my fingers, creating a loop. Then, holding the end of the curl, I pressed it with the straighter, then sprayed it and pinned it in place.

After pinning all my hair up, I finished makeup, getting dressed, etc. and then let the curls loose. I then brushed through the curls to loosen up the look, and to tame any pieces and smooth the top of my hair, I used the straighter again (like normal).

Curling my hair this way gave me more of a ringlet/pin curl rather than the big wavy curls I’d get from using hot rollers. Plus, the curls really held well, which is huge for me! You can see a video for this same idea here, and check out more ideas for using the ghd straightener here. I definitely recommend these particular straighteners if you are in the market for a new one – they really work amazingly (got hot quickly, smoothed easily), and I mean, that mint color is just too good, right? Now I just need to try it out on this short hair! Maybe now I’ll be going straight more often!

Disclosure: The straightener was sent to me as a PR sample – but this in no way affected my review. As always, it’s very important to me that I offer honest reviews to you and only write about products that I like and fully endorse.
