WIN! Shiny candy coloured ghds for the summer

After all the times I’ve asked for your help in bloggy awards etc (eyes right peeps), I thought it was about time I gave something back to my beloved readers. Yep, that’s you.

I’ve never run a competition directly on Fashion Detective before. I’ve had offers to do them, but none of the prizes have ever really grabbed me.

But when the groovy peeps at ghd told me they were willing to give away one of their delicious, new IV Candy Collection stylers to a Fashion Detective reader…how on earth could I say no?

Does the lush lemon styler tickle your fancy?

If, like me, you already have ghds, you’ll know how utterly indispensable they are. Mine heat up in seconds and turn serious bed hair into smooth, sleek locks.

You’ve seen how I wear my hair, so you can imagine how much I rely on them when I’m in need of a quick straight ‘n’ shiny fix.

If you don’t own a pair of ghds, seriously – you need to. I’ve tried other brands but there’s nothing better than the real thing.

And if the practical side of things isn’t enough, they look super sexy too – and the new Candy Collection consists of gorgeous mint, lemon or violet models…want, want, want.

So, here’s how to win yourself this brilliant prize.

In the spirit of this blog, simply cast your mind back to life before ghds and tell me about your worst ever “bad hair day”. Could be a haircut that went wrong, could be a funny story (hopefully not as x-rated as There’s Something About Mary) or just the disastrous way you used to wear your hair when you were a kid.

If you have a photo as evidence of your hair trauma, all the better – but basically the little story that makes me LOL the most will win the prize.

To enter, pop along to the Fashion Detectives Facebook page and stick your story into the comments thread or on the wall. If you have a photo to share, attach it to your comment (bear in mind that I do love a comedy shot.)

Entries close at midnight on Thursday May 2nd 2013 and the winner will be announced on Friday May 3rd.

Good luck guys.
