ghd’s Scarlet Collection Featuring Katy Perry

“I’m so excited to be working with ghd and using their tools on my California Dreams Tour to get me stage ready. ghd has a reputation of having the best products in the biz, and I like being associated with that.” –Katy Perry

Katy Perry and ghd have teamed up to introduce the Scarlet Collection ($225, a $270 Value) A three-piece set featuring the ghd Gold Series Professional styler with decadent red plates and accents, protective plate guard, heat-resistant red deco-inspired styler roll bag, and two sectioning clips.

This sleek and sexy set helps you to create the ultimate show-stopping styles. The styler smoothes through hair for an ultra-shiny result. Free of sharp edges that could catch on hair, the plates’ smooth ceramic coating is designed to enhance the glide of the Styler through the hair promoting luster. The included clips allow for easy sectioning and a 1920s Art-Deco-inspired bag lets you take it all with you glamorously wherever you go.

I have been using the Gold Professional 1/2″ Styler ($225 USD) — A sleek, half-inch styler featuring golden ceramic plates that
deliver the ultimate professional finish.  This styler smoothes through hair for an ultra-shiny result. Free of sharp edges that could catch on hair, the plates’ ceramic coating is designed to enhance the glide of the Styler through the hair promoting luster.

What I like:  Everything! This heats up quickly and although it does get really hot, it leaves hair soft, shiny and undamaged.  I also love this thin size because it can be used for all lengths of hair.  It is especially good for short hair detailing, but makes bouncy curls for longer hair, too!

Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System and the Opal Sonic Infusion System at LA Style Fashion Week

We all know that California girls have a golden glow, but what is their secret to gorgeous skin?  We’ll let you in on a little secret—they use Clarisonic!  On March 15-18th, Clarisonic participated backstage at Style Fashion Week Los Angeles, and treated busy models to mini facials with the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System and the Opal Sonic Infusion System.

Keep reading for more backstage tidbits from these exciting events as well as trends from each show and tips from the Clarisonic aestheticians!

Time to Get Runway Ready!

Models arrived backstage at the Vibiana, a historic church in downtown Los Angeles, in the late afternoon.  They were thrilled to received Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System treatments, which removed makeup 6X better than manual cleansing.  Models were happy to hear that sunscreen and other topicals are absorbed 61% more effectively by the skin after using the Clarisonic.  They also learned that self-tanner goes on more evenly after using the Clarisonic PLUS Model on the arms, legs and décolleté—a must in Los Angeles!

Tighten and Brighten!
With a week full of shows and parties, it’s easy for a model to look tired. Thankfully the Opal Sonic Infusion System came to the rescue!  After providing facials with the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System, Eva, Dottie and Jennifer used the Opal around the models’ eyes.  The Opal combines sonic micro-massage with proprietary anti-aging serum to work immediately on appearance of lines and wrinkles and also helps to depuff.

      Don’t Forget the Men!
Female models weren’t the only ones enjoying Clarisonic treatments.  Male models at the Future Heretics and Gypsy 05 shows loved them too! Most male models said that their skin had never felt as clean as it did after using the Clarisonic.  One male model came back for a second treatment because it was so relaxing!

Dottie and Jennifer used a Normal Brush Head instead of a Sensitive or Delicate Brush Head on the men’s skin since Normal is better at cleaning men’s skin, which is typically rougher and thicker than women’s skin.

I am going to be reviewing a Clarisonic Mia in a few weeks, but all of the buzz is very good! To purchase, you can visit www.clarisonic.com or www.qvc.com.
