Flapper Style...It's the Cat's Meow!

“They were smart and sophisticated, with an air of independence about them, and so casual about their looks and clothes and manners as to be almost slapdash. I don't know if I realized as soon as I began seeing them that they represented the wave of the future, but I do know I was drawn to them. I shared their restlessness, understood their determination to free themselves of the Victorian shackles of the pre-World War I era and find out for themselves what life was all about.”
Colleen Moore

Dolls, if there is one thing the flapper-centric era of the Roaring Twenties ingrained in our minds, it is that women are a powerful species of vixen, capable of achieving anything they set their sights on if given a dash of confidence, a strand of demure pearls, a fringe-encrusted frock, and, above all else the fabulous fingerwaves that made them so utterly irresistible to everyone from fellow flappers to dapper gentlemen with deep pockets. Now, though the time of bathtub gin, speakeasies, and bobbed hair is behind us, ghd is making it possible to indulge in the dramatic looks of the 1920s via their assortment of flat irons – specifically, their latest limited edition styler…the Scarlet.

Staying true to her magnificent moniker, the Scarlet is a flirty little number sporting crimson red plates, and sectioning clips which make it simple for the stylista to pay a tribute to the wondrous waves of the Twenties; a chic and charming collection of styling essentials which come packaged in a stunning, scarlet-hued carrying case, which doubles as a glamorous reticule perfect for accompanying you on your romantic rendezvous with handsome (and decadently dressed!) boys.

Fashionably yours!
