Ghd’s new Vintage Pink styler’s finally arrived and ten percent of the sale goes to the PrinkDrive

Good news for all you retro-lovin’, ‘see you at the soda shop’ would-be pin-up girls – ghd’s latest limited edition styler is right up your street!

What's in the box?

The new Vintage Pink V styler (R2 399) boasts an elegant-looking matte powder pink finish with metallic pale pink finishes accented by black ceramic coated plates.

Pretty, pretty!

I can tell you right now, Dita von Teese, with her retro pink kitchen, is totally snapping one up as I type.

Anyone for a banana split?
Anyone for scone?

Spec-wise, if you’re not familiar with ghd, the V styler is the upgrade to the IV. It’s body is lighter than it’s predecessor and it stays cooler to the touch. The plates, however, are quick to heat up to an optimal 175 – 185 and are contoured to glide through your hair to help you create either poker straight locks with a single stroke or bouncy curls with a few clever flicks of the wrist. (Personally, I can never get that curling action down. Huge respect to the women I’ve seen doing it with the greatest of ease. This particular skill is something that’s totally sitting on my ‘To learn’ list.)

There's just one button to switch it on, it makes a beep when it's hot and then switches off 30 minutes later by itself.

The styler comes in a pretty pink matching carrier bag…

Mooi!
You could totally see Lana del Ray owning this, right?

…that rolls out to become a heat-resistant mat.

Guess who's not going to burn the shizzle out their duvet any more. You are!
Guess who’s never going to set fire to her mattress again?

Also available in the retro line up, but sold separately is a paddle brush R299) and a set of two sectioning clips (R20).

Now for the best bit – 10-percent of each Vintage Pink item sold (that’s R239 if you buy the styler) goes towards PinkDrive. The organisation runs pink trucks that act as mobile breast check clinics to help create awareness and promote early detection with a focus on disadvantaged communities. Their newest truck is a mammoth – a doctor’s room on wheels – from which free mammograms as well as cervical cancer screenings can be performed with ease. To date, PinkDrive has performed over 60 000 breast checks alone.

Aside from purchasing a styler, there’s another way to help – text ‘ghd vintage pink’ to 40158 you can donate R20 to PinkDrive. You can also inspire others to help by sharing the following on your social media platforms: ‘I just donated R20 to PinkDrive by texting 40158 #VintagePink #MyHairCares’. You can also tag friends to nominate them to do the same. Ghd encourages you to include a pic of you wearing a vintage hair style, but this is a nice to have, certainly not a must-have. I wouldn’t let my lack of skill and time in whipping up something like that prevent me from helping to make a difference.

More Dita in the kitchen mooiness, I just couldn't resist.
I just had to throw in some more ‘Dita in the kitchen’ mooiness, I just couldn’t resist.

To get your mitts on the new Vintage Pink styler, pop on over to ghd’s local website to find a stockist near you or snap it up via the site. Delivery is free!

Love, love
