Dafydd Catches up with the GHD Gang!
"Since I became a part of the Fellowship F.A.M.E. Team, I have had what can only be described as a whirlwind year. The Fellowship, sponsors and guest artists have all been so generous with their time and skills and I really can’t thank them enough for it. With my commitment to the F.A.M.E. Team, naturally I haven’t been able to give my full attention to other parts of my life as much as I should.
But this week, I had a nice big space in my diary to reunite with the ghd Art Team. With so much time having passed since the team were last together it was great to have something set in our schedules (well in advance might I add), where we could finally all meet again. Leighanne, Sophie, Leah, Billy and myself all met at the ghd studio in Soho, where we were given yet another warm welcome by our Team Manager, Jo Robertson and ghd Art Team Ambassador, Zoe Irwin.
The ghd Art Team has been something I’ve always wanted to be a part of. Since becoming a member almost two years ago, it’s given me countless opportunities to style hair all over the UK and internationally, take part in creative and commercial photo-shoots, as well as working backstage at London Fashion Week. ghd has recently launched the search for its latest Art Team member. This is something I would encourage both experienced and emerging stylists to enter.
Being back at the studio gave the team plenty of opportunities to catch up with what all the members have been up to. Myself and Leighanne jetted off to Oz with the F.A.M.E. Team, Sophie reached her one year mark with her salon Wonderland in Edinburgh and Billy is just being as fabulous as ever!
I would like to exploit my position as a blogger here to wish one of our industry darlings, Art Team member and a great friend of mine, Leah Walton, a big congratulations on her recent engagement to Andrew Riley. She’ll have plenty of offers from the team to do her hair on the big day I’m sure!
Being back in the studio was also a great chance for the team to get creative with the new ghd aura dryer. We’ve had plenty of time to spend with the new dryer and have come up with some great new techniques and tips for you all."
