Celebrity hairstylist Travis Balcke shared his top tips and trends over a stunning breakfast to celebrate the launch of ghd’s limited edition and Christmas gift set collections. Guests were invited to sip on chic blue beverages while perusing the range at Icebergs Dining Room & Bar in Bondi, which had been decorated for the festive season.
The venue sported a Christmas tree and holiday decorations, a fittingly blue colour palette and a frosty overall feel, despite the Bondi location. The renowned venue took this colour theme to additional heights, with the alluring view of the ocean and iconic Bondi Beach setting below the room.
The frosted blue theme perfectly complemented the latest glacial blue collection, which was showcased in a strikingly impressive ice sculpture. Travis, who counts Lara Worthington, Jennifer Hawkins and Paloma Faith as clients, tended to the model’s tresses using the smart ghd platinum+ styler, giving her effortless, beachy waves.
“I wanted to create something current and wearable that suits the current demographic in Australia,” Travis explained. “No matter which way you manipulate the hair, it always has shine throughout, along with smoothness and volume.”
ghd managing director for Australia and New Zealand Ludovic Dellazzeri and ghd head of marketing for Australia and New Zealand Geraldine van der Merwe also gave speeches during the intimate presentation, speaking to the importance of the brand’s always illustrious and limited edition Christmas range and campaign.
Guests were then invited to sit down to enjoy a three-course Icebergs breakfast and were given a gift to take home and put under the Christmas tree.
The ghd glacial blue collection features the new SMART platinum+ styler, iconic ghd gold styler and professional favourite ghd air hair dryer, all dusted in a frosty blue hue.
Whether on your shelf, in your kit or under the tree, these tools will make this holiday a season a blue Christmas in the most striking way possible, acting as the first point of reference on your list for Santa.
