The Golden Age | ghd X RIXO

ghd recently partnered with vintage-inspired fashion brand RIXO to debut its AW22 collection ‘The Golden Age’ at London Fashion Week.

Inspired by the 1930’s, the collection embodies ‘The Golden Age of Glamour for women’s fashion’ and celebrates the opulence and splendour depicted on the Hollywood movie screens at the time. In partnership with ghd, UK Trade Ambassador, James Earnshaw and his team brought the traditional Hollywood glamour to life through a 1930’s inspired defined wave using the new ghd curve thin wand.

“I absolutely love the new ghd curve thin wand because it can be used on so many hair types to create so many different styles. For those with naturally textured hair, the wand can be used to contour or define curls, or for the Rixo AW22 hair look, it has been used to create detailed glossy waves. The best part – it’s so quick and easy to use as the long barrel creates a curl in just 3 seconds! It’s my backstage secret weapon.” ghd UK Trade Ambassador, James Earnshaw.


1930’s Hollywood Glam Wave by James Earnshaw

“The hair look this season is all about embracing your authentic self – RIXO truly embody expressing yourself and being exactly who you want to be. The hair has been inspired by 1930’s glam with a hint of 1970’s trends with lots of shine, volume and movement. Using ghd’s versatile tools backstage, has enabled me to work with individual hair types to create the final look”. – ghd UK Trade Ambassador, James Earnshaw
