More than ever the wedding season is no longer confined to the summer months. Suddenly the number of invites dropping through the letterbox are looking set to shape your full year’s calendar.
The stress of finding a new dress for each occasion becomes daunting (and expensive). So this year look outside the outfit for ways to refresh your look and update your usual wedding guest go-to. ghd UK Ambassador, Zoe Irwin shares her top tips to put a modern twist on your style, with a simple hair guide to transform your wedding-guest look.
Add some sparkle!
This season, accessories are back and weddings are the perfect playground! Once hair has been blow-dried with the ghd air hairdryer (£99), brush through and create a simple side parting. Using the ghd curve creative curl wand (£120), firstly section off and work through section
by section, wrapping the full length of your hair around the tong all in the same direction for a uniformed curl. Once the hair is cooled, brush back the smaller section of parted hair so it sits behind your ear and clip in a selection of clips for instant glam and added sparkle.
Pin it up!
Refresh the classic up-do with an un-done chignon. Start by blasting the hair dry with the ghd air hairdryer and running the ghd platinum + styler (£175) through the lengths of the hair to smooth. Leave two small front sections of hair loose and pull the remaining hair back into a low pony and secure with a hair tie. Split hair in two and twist back around on itself and into the centre, securing with kirby grips. Finally take the two front sections and loosely tong with the ghd curve creative curl wand (£120), and with your fingertips, lightly tease the hair for an edgy-cool finish and spritz with ghd final fix hairspray (£9.95) for added shine and hold.
Keep it healthy!
The key to gorgeous wedding guest hair is preparation, ensuring that you start looking after your locks in the months before the big day. Make sure you start to apply regular treatments and masks so that your hair is healthy and your style will hold throughout the day and evening. Use the ghd advanced split end therapy (£19.95) in the weeks leading up to your big day to help nourish and fortify damaged ends, leaving your hair feeling sleek, smooth and shiny.
