If you know anything about me, you’d know I LOVE when my hair is fresh-out-of-the-salon, bouncy. Nothing is better than the confidence gained by a new ‘do, but often the price tag can be less than desirable. Enter, the at home flat iron.

I’ve grappled with a few different brands of hot tools before, but after trying out the Lisa Raye RED Pro Diamond Plated Ceramic Flat Iron  at home, I’ve experienced salon quality sleekness that can not be matched.

With crushed diamonds infused into the ceramic plate and a temperature of up to 460 degrees, this ceramic iron is the answer to my hair styling prayers.  The diamonds provide strength in the plates, which in turn provides an extra smooth surface with consistent heating. Smooth, evenly heated plates help to prevent damage to the hair when styling, and results in sleek, shiny, healthy looking hair. The RED Pro comes complete with everything you need to bump your style up a notch, including a heat resistant comb, hair clips, and a cute travel pouch.

Katy Perry has a bubbly persona that is easy to love. Even when she is being serious I still see her as a bit playful.  In these  photos of her latest campaign for  ghd, Katy shows a sophisticated style that is exceptionally easy on the eyes.

Katy Perry is ghd’s Global Brand Ambassador and for their latest campaign, she is photographed by renowned fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth in Los Angeles. The campaign features Katy in a series of striking scenarios. “The classic yet fashion forward images see Katy with an array of covetable, wearable hair looks and exuding confidence – a positive message to inspire millions of women to have a good hair day, every day.”

 

“Our new campaign brings the ghd brand promise of a ‘good hair day, every day’ to life,” said Paul Stoneham, Chief Executive Officer, ghd. “Katy and Ellen have created something really special in these images, capturing the essence of ghd today.”

Good hair day, every day – is the ghd’s core client promise and launched as part of the new campaign.  I’m a huge fan of ghd flat irons and for about a year I used this one, exclusively.

Stylist, Danilo, “created all of Katy’s looks using ghd gold series technology, capturing the effortlessly beautiful hair throughout the story. The diversity of the styles featured in the new campaign shows the versatility of the ghd range, the iconic ghd stylers, a range of professional-quality brushes and the capsule collection of styling products, ghd style.” To shop ghd’s line of products click here.

I like this look on Katy Perry. What do you think?

I have coarse textured hair that I have been chemically relaxing for about 20 years. A few years ago I gave up trying to get my hair silky smooth and straight. I have tried expensive and inexpensive flat irons combined with a myriad of styling products. In addition to at-home styling, I have also tried professional stylists…no luck. To date, I have been unable to achieve bone straight silky looking hair.

When I picked up the Remington Extra-Long Ceramic Straightener, I wasn’t expecting much. I figured it would perform like the other drugstore straighteners that I have tried in the past (believe me, I have tried several). I was blown away and surprised to discover that this $24.99 styling tool performed better than my current straightener, which costs over $100.00.

The Remington has 5 inch long floating plates, which is about 50% longer than any flat iron than I’ve used in the past. Parts of my hair are thicker than others and the 30 heat settings offered by the straightener allow me to find the right heat setting for all sections of my hair. There is even a setting for my recently purchased synthetic “London Girl” wig.

Before I straightened my hair I washed and conditioned. I also used a leave-in hair treatment and moisturizer (my hair is very dry.) While straightening, I sectioned my hair into thin wide portions and was able to finish the process quicker than I would with a traditional sized straightener. Other features include, anti-static technology that helps to reduce the static charges that cause flyaways and frizz. It also has a swivel cord, travel lock and for the jet-setters it has variable voltage capabilities…so you’re good to go wherever you land on the globe. The 60 minute auto shut-off feature is great for the absent minded (present company included). The tip of the straightener remains relatively cool, so, the amateur user will have an easier time working the tool. The Remington Extra-Long Ceramic Straightener helped me achieve results that were the closest I’ve ever been to bone straight silky hair.
