Last month I went for a wander around my nearest shopping complex and popped into Boots to see what was new there, and at the back of the store they had a small clearance area and I noticed there was a pair of the Mark Hill Straight Up! Hair Straighteners on clearance for £10.00. Bargain, I thought, as I had just booked an appointment to go and have my hair done at the Mark Hill Salon in Kirk Ella and had been eyeing up his products in the salon. So obviously, it went straight in my basket.
However, once I got to the tills, the straighteners scanned at just £5 and I had £5 of Boots Advantage points on my card so basically they cost me £0! I was thrilled - it's the small things that make my day. These straighteners have obviously gone off sale due to new ones coming out as I can only find them on Amazon for £38.00, but that really doesn't bother me as the new ones are £85.00.
I have always used GHDs but my current pair I have had about six years and technology changes so much so quickly that I didn't want to shell out £100 or more on something I don't use on a daily, or even weekly basis anymore. So for £10, £5 or even free, I was more than happy with these. The straighteners themselves have a hot pink and black ombre effect and even feature a lock so that you can keep the straighteners closed which is great for travelling with.
The straighteners have an on/off switch so you can't control the heat but they reach 200 degrees celsius and so these heat up pretty quickly and straighten the hair perfectly. The plates are a similar size to my GHDs as I don't need the wider ones as I only have fine hair and they are ceramic coated, which helps to control frizz. When I glide them through my hair, there is nothing that my hair gets stuck on and as the plates are so smooth, there is no pulling or tugging either. Thanks Boots!
