GHD Deluxe Midnight Hair Styler Gift Set
Advantages: Beautiful gift set will make a brilliant gift for someone.
Disadvantages: None for me.
This GHD Christmas 2010 limited edition set has a black and gold theme to it, oozing glamour and elegance. It comes packaged in a beautiful treasure chest type case, the front featuring a gold jewelled piece with GHD written in gold. The case itself is solid and is made from a good quality material. Opening the chest reveals another case, with the same theme, except this one is a soft case with 2 gold zips, and one of the zips is a little gold shoe. The case is spacious, and the GHD styler itself fits snugly inside along with two hair clips. When you unzip the case and open it fully, the top side of it unrolls and is a heat resistant mat to rest the styler once whilst you are styling your hair.
Tucked away down the side of the chest is the travel mirror. I didn't expect this to mount up to much however I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this little mirror is! It has a gold fancy, and quite heavy, metal design around it and has a stand just like a picture frame. It is wonderfully made however a downside is it isn't a travel mirror you could keep in your handbag as it is too heavy and oddly shaped for that, but it would go fine in a suitcase. Looking further into the large case, you will see there is a panel which lifts up. Underneath this panel is the travel hair-dryer, all in black with a small gold patterned design on the front it's nothing special but again the quality of it is brilliant and it's not just a flimsy thing thrown in as an after thought.
Enough with the stylish packaging though, and onto the main thing itself, the GHD styler. This styler is obviously the newest model and I can instantly notice the difference from my older GHD styler. For a start it's now extremely lightweight, although at first I was a bit worried about this. The new lightweight feel might make things easier, but I was used to something a bit heavy and the lightness of it now conveys a more cheaper image, and didn't come across as brilliant quality to me straight off. Despite being part of a limited edition set it doesn't look too much different from the normal styler anyway. It is black and gold but I would have expected a more fanciful design for a limited edition, and whilst it goes with the more sophisticated theme the whole set portrays, I do feel it looks quite boring. Maybe I was simply spoilt by my pretty purple patterned GHD styler I had been using for the past 2 years.
The styler bleeps when you switch it on, and will also bleep again when it's reached the correct temperature, and it really takes no time at all for this styler to heat up. It also has a safety shut off feature so if it's left on for 30 minutes it will shut itself off, however as it's still technically switched on, not just on the styler but also at the mains, I wouldn't rely on this too heavily, but it's a brilliant feature for anyone who ever forgets to switch off their hair straighteners. I never used to be a GHD fan finding them too overpriced, that was until I actually used a friend's styler a few years ago, and ever since I am a dedicated GHD fan. I was still extremely pleased at how easy it is to straighten and style my hair using this, it takes no time at all and my hair stays straight all day. It also doesn't snag my hair whilst styling and glides through hair easily. It's still taking me a while to get used to the fact it is now much more light weight than the old models. It may seem straight but after 2 years I am finding it hard to get used to this and sometimes feel like the styler isn't touching my hair, when it actually is!
This set will make a beautiful gift for someone at Christmas, and I should point out there are two versions to choose from, one containing the hair dryer and the other comes without. The set without the hair dryer doesn't come with the gorgeous chest but the rest of the contents are essentially the same. This set including the hair dryer costs £134.95 on Amazon at the moment, the set without the hair dryer costing £129 so price wise there isn't a huge difference between the two sets. If you love GHD's then I highly recommend this beautiful limited edition gift set.
Summary: GHD bring out yet another gift set, but it's very nicely done.
