YEAR 2018




It’s the hair colour trend that’s taking 2015 by storm; it’s not blonde, it’s not brunette but it can be tailored exactly to your skin tone which is why we set our young Stylists a ‘Bronde Project’ earlier this month.

Each Stylist presented their own Bronde technique, model and mood board to a panel of judges at The Old Hall. Serafina (Stylist at Ashbourne) wowed everyone with her Dior inspired A-Line technique and technically perfect application to be named the winner of this seasons competition – Congratulations Serafina!

Winner: Serafina (Stylist at Ashbourne)

Level 3 entrants: Beth (Stylist at Duffield), Hannah (Stylist at The Old Hall), Natalie (Stylist at The Old Hall)

Five of our girls attended the GHD launch party in Birmingham for the exciting new ‘Platinum’ styler.  The Platinum styler uses safer-for-hair heat that is designed to take the guilt out of heat styling your hair. The Styler has been designed with tri-tone® technology which uses three sensors in each plate, ensuring the optimum temperature maintained across the entire plate from root to tip of the hair. It delivers ultimate results with healthier, stronger and shinier hair… who says you need extreme heat to look extremely hot?

Not only did the girls have a fabulous time at the event watching models strut down a catwalk, but they also had tutorials with some of the best stylists from GHD and came back full of knowledge about the Platinum Styler.

“We learnt so much at the event. The GHD Art Team were on stage teaching us different techniques and looks using the new GHD Platinum Styler. Then it was all hands on re-creating the looks ourselves, trying out techniques and creating our own styles on our models. At the end of the launch we sent in the photos  to be judged in a in-house competition for the ‘best photo’ of our created look. The new Platinum gives fantastic results and are so much easier to use due to the wishbone hinge.” – Sophie, Belper.


Priced £165, the Platinum Styler is available in white and matt black.
