PSA: ghd just unveiled their newest hair gadget

Hello, dream waves

We know, we know: Just when you'd saved up your spending money for the now sold-out ghd glide hot brush, they've gone and released a shiny new hair tool to covet - and this one does so much more than simply smooth your hair.

In fact, not only does the ghd Oracle tame wayward strands, but it also gives impressively bouncy curls, natural waves and a smooth finish. And unlike other curling wands, you don't need to fuss about wrapping sections around the wand - the ghd Oracle creates the curl all by itself. 

Here it is in action:

See, you don't need to worry about bending, or twisting like conventional curling tools. The difference? The ghd Oracle features break-through 'curl-zone' technology. 

Six years in the making, the ghd Oracle creates voluminous texture thanks to its unique heating and cooling two-phase function - which is automatic so, you won't even realise it's happening - all you need to do is glide the tool down your strands in just one stroke. (Think: The same technique you use with the ghd original styler.)

Hair passes through an innovative U shaped barrel, made up of 4 different ceramic plates. As hair glides through the heated zone, it is shaped into the curl.

As tresses make their way out of the unique U shape, it is flash-cooled instantly, setting the curl. The immediate cooling ensures long-lasting results and foolproof waves with serious bounce. Say goodbye, to floppy, lifeless hair. 

ghd Oracle, RRP $340

Regardless of whether you're styling hair on your left-side or right-side; or which angle, the hair will always pass through the same U shape for consistent curling each time. By tilting the ghd Oracle at slightly different angles you can create a variety of different curls and waves, from cool-girl beachy waves to a more uniform curl.

Experience the new ghd oracle in selected ghd salons from May 2019, RRP $340.
