Reality Revival : Part 2

We’re back with the final 4 looks of Ghd’s trend collection – Reality Revival – Check out the first 4 HERE. Thank you Patrick Wilson for the fusion of red carpet and runway; and for bringing glamour back into our lives after lockdown. We’re thoroughly enjoying the exaggerated shapes and extravagant updo’s.

“Our Autumn/Winter Trend Reveal is about a global evolving from ease to opulence,” says creative director Amy Sontae, ghd’s global education creative manager.“It’s an imagining of a possible future, breaking the shackles of dreary lockdown style. Say goodbye to DIY home hair fixes, rouse your hibernating fashionista, don your highest heels and transition from slouch to sleek – it’s time for a reality revival!”

Runway Ready

In ghd’s 20th anniversary year, what could be more perfect than a premium take on super-sleek hair? This look takes
its cute from Versace AW21, which was described as an ode to shopping and packed with accessories and pieces that were not only reminiscent of a life left behind, but a desire to return to our new normal. Luxurious heavy hair, tucked neatly behind the ear, was also seen at Valentino’s Couture show, which incidentally served as the makeup inspiration for the ghd collection.


This look was inspired by Dior’s pre-AW21 collection, which revealed Jisoo of Blackpink as the brand’s new ambassador. She served as model and muse for the gothic fairytale- inspired show, staged at Versailles. These tousled waves reflect designer Maria Grazia Chiuri vision of the collection as: “pure post-lockdown psychology… a longing for opulence suppressed by strict austerity”.

Fashion Set

This ultra-modern set harks back to the old-school glamour of the 1940s, as interpreted by Jeremy Scott in his retro salon-style presentation for AW21. The intimate showcase was a thought-provoking image of our current surreal lives: a preparation to gear up for our post-pandemic return to reality. Hair was full-on 1940s glamour, delivered with an air of modernity through a loose finish and soft texture.

Tress Chic

Lived-in luxe was the vibe at Victoria Beckham catwalk, for the perfect midpoint between celebratory glam and cautious reality. Heavily inspired by the 90’s, think blunt fringes, heavy cuts and lived-in texture, but with the healthy, luxe feel that you expect from the Victoria Beckham girl. It’s ‘hair realness’ with a slept in, individual feel.
