ghd party season style guide

Aurore Caboche ghd: always a good news story

Your clients might not have a packed social calendar this holiday season, and it could be more like ‘PJ Season’ than ‘Party Season’, but when they come in the salons for a colour touch-up or to refresh their haircut and ask for some tips and advice on how to add some glitz and glamour, ghd’s festive style guide has all the answers. Five looks that are guaranteed to make them feel amazing no matter what their plans are for Christmas. Created by ghd’s Creative Artist Luke Benson. The first two are a perfect idea for you to ”sell” as a styling service for their Zoom or family party. And Luke is giving you the steps in order to create them. The rest are more like DIY, so it’s something you can suggest to your clients; just make sure they have the right ghd tools to achieve them. 

Ready for party season? Enjoy!
