As part of an ongoing campaign, I was kindly invited by Best British Bloggers to recreate a Sixties' hairstyle of my choice, with a weapon of choice. I opted for the Air hairdryer from GHD - their latest hairdryer release - and set about attempting to coiffure my unruly mane to something that Audrey Hepburn would be envious of.

GHD Air Hairdryer, c/o Best British Bloggers.
First things first, the Air hairdryer is nothing short of a miracle. I've long stayed away from blowdrying my hair as I tend to go through phases where I can't be pulled away from my Enrapture Totem Styler or Babyliss curler, and prefer not to apply too much heat to my hair. However, this hairdryer works really quickly and efficiently in drying all of my long, thick hair in no time at all, without it feeling fried. There are a multiplicity of heat settings, as well as interchangable styling nozzles, of which I simply use the standard option, on the whole.

Paired with one of my old ceramic plated hairbrushes, I simply blowdry my hair, curling the ends in with the brush for a bouncy 'Swinging Sixties' feel, and add a touch of hairspray to set the shine and bounce. To achieve my faux, messy beehive, I finger-comb my hair to an appropriate beehive silhouette, pin with invisible hair grips and tousle/mess the ends to make it feel more 'me'. I recently - in a moment of madness - trimmed a shorter fringe to frame my face, so I also tend to pull a few tendrils out around my face and blowdry or curl to flatter the overall look, et voila. Faux Audrey Hepburn, minus the mean reds (mostly).

  2. Ooh you look lovely with that hairdo! My hair is too uncooperative and I'm too uncoordinated to do anything nice like this haha.

    Also, I finally ordered myself a copy of Aesthetic, I've been so busy lately I kept putting it off! So excited.

  6. This hair dryer sounds fab. I have uncontrollably thick hair and with the hairdryer I have now it can take me at least half an hour to dry it.

    Coincidentally the other day I was eyeing this up and wondering if it was any good, so thank you for this review!

    Hair looks gorgeous of course xx
