Make Waves with FHI Heat

Hair is just not my thing. I honestly have no clue how to style it, I wash it and go to bed with it wet, I only go to a hair salon twice a year and I don’t own any styling products. So when I got a FHI Heat GO styling iron I saw it as an opportunity to turn things around. I watched some tutorials on YouTube and it looked relatively easy, so I was rearing to go. Please excuse the fact that I could really do with some lipstick in these pics.


This is what my hair looked like when I took it out of a bun, which is how I usually wear my hair. Bun, ponytail or plait. I never leave it loose, basically. As you can see, I could really do with a haircut too.

I had an attempt at doing curls which didn’t go very well. I realised quickly that you really need to use some sort of protecting product first, like the FHI Heat Hot Sauce. I reckon I set the temperature a bit frazzling hot, so I had slightly better results when I turned the temperature down quite a bit. On my first try I got a curl at the top or bottom only, or not at all. This takes some practise!

I had a lot better luck with doing some basic straightening. If you are hopeless at doing your own hair, like I am, this is safest place to start. I was actually pretty pleased with the results. You can really see the difference between my first picture and the last picture. I love the colour of my styling iron. I will happily take just about anything in hot pink. I also like that you can adjust the temperature, and it has a very long cord. Apparently, if you know the tips and tricks you can create flips, curls, ringlets and straight styles.

I would really love to hand my GO styling iron to a professional (or just competent) person and let them do their magic with it. I know these styling irons are celeb-worthy quality. I am going to invest in a product to protect my coloured hair from drying out, and then I’m going to keep practising. Once I’ve got the knack of it hopefully I will look like this…
