I remember one birthday in particular, one that sticks out from all the rest (besides my nineth birthday in hospital, and then my eighteenth which, we don't tend to talk about. Let's just say that it involved some throwing up in my parent's front garden...). Anyway, this birthday that I remember so well, in fact, changed me forever was my fifteenth birthday.
My parents bought me my first pair of straighteners.
And from that day forward, I didn't have to look like Tina Turner no more. Nope, I was about to tame the mane. And I never looked back. Ever.
The straight wasn't straight enough.
And you know how it is.. I've got frizz.
Lots of it too!
So yeah, it took a lot of time. A lot of effort.
I bought my first pair of ghd's in my local hairdressers when I was seventeen - and hands down, I had them until last month. YEP that's right.. Nearly ten years.
Now that's a lot of good there.
I guess I was waiting for the day that they'd crumble and decide enough was enough, but nope, they kept me going. And to be honest, they STILL are! I'd spend mornings worrying that two days before payday, they'd probably, and I always knew that I'd replace them right away - without a doubt.
Luckily I didn't have to though.
They're now happily tucked away in my bottom drawer - because y'know, I'm way to attached.
Some things have just been with you for so long. So many memories.
So much taming has been done. All thanks to them.
Little did the Eclipse know of the hard work they were in for...
And oh did they not disappoint.
They are just, so sleek. Like incredibly soft. And they move down my hair like silk.
They make me think my hair is SILKY.
And greet me with a little beeple (beep doesn't sound so exciting. It definitely beeples) when turned on. I think it's genuinely love. From some heated plates.
Plus they're white - need I really say anymore?
I enjoy our special moments together every morning, occasional evenings, and even hair wash night doesn't seem so dull with these around anymore.
I guess what I'm trying to say, is that these are the straighteners that dreams are made of. They straighten my hair, they curl my hair.. and I'm fairly sure they can do a whole lot more than that.
But you know me. I'm still trying to get over the Tina Turner days.
So two hairstyles are just fine for me right now.
