Bed Head Foxy Curls Styling Iron Giveaway!

Bed Head Foxy Curls 1-1/4 Inch Tourmaline Ceramic Conical Styling Iron creates softer, shinier, natural looking curls and waves – without frizz. The iron heats up in just 30 seconds, and the temperature dial has multiple heat settings that can be adjusted to suit your hair texture. The cool tip lets you get a grip, without fear of burning your fingers. And forgetful gals will appreciate the iron’s automatic shutoff feature – which powers down after an hour.

To catch some Gisele-esque waves, follow these instructions:

For a looser curl at the ends, take a 2-inch section of hair and put the end under the kink-free mini clamp. Hold the iron at a vertical angle and rotate it, wrapping the hair tightly around the barrel. Hold the iron in this position for a few seconds, depending on your hair type. Release the clamp and pull the iron out from the center of the curl. For a looser curl at the roots, place hair closest to the roots under the mini clamp and wrap hair down the barrel, leaving the ends out. Repeat this process until your desired look is achieved.

Natural curls are never uniform in size or direction – so to create “maybe she’s born with it” ringlets, it’s best to alternate curling methods. Once you’ve finished your entire head, let the curls cool and then gently shake them or loosen them by finger combing.

This week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Bed Head and giving a Foxy Curls Styling Iron away to one lucky reader. To enter, leave a comment below.

Winner of the ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway

Congrats to the winner of the ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway – Jessica Lucente!

Jessica will receive the Boho Chic set – which includes the ghd Gold Professional 1″ styler, two sectioning clips and a step-by-step booklet showing you how to recreate iconic styles at home – packed in a heat-resistant, brown fringed clutch!

I own the same set and I’m obsessed. It’s like the styling iron of my dreams, made real. I love that it heats up in mere seconds, and beeps to let me know it’s time to do the do. And the contoured plates allow me to create both straight and curved styles. It also shuts off after 30 minutes of inactivity, which is a big plus for me because I’m constantly paranoid that I’ve left my flat iron plugged in and I’m going to burn down the house. But my favorite feature is the plate guard – it slips on like a cap so you can just throw your hot-as-hell styling iron into your bag (or wherever) without fear that it’ll singe up all of your stuff. Love that!

Jessica is going to love it too. Congrats, girl!

Many thanks to ghd for sponsoring this giveaway and to everyone who entered. Check back tomorrow for Spoiled Pretty’s next giveaway!

ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway!

ghd and their global brand ambassador Katy Perry are reinventing styles from the most glamorous eras to create gorgeous looks with a modern 2011 twist. The new Iconic Eras of Style limited edition collection includes three limited edition sets that allow you to reinvent iconic looks from the most dapper decades.

Inspired by old Hollywood beauty, the Glamour set allows you to create captivating soft curls straight from the 1950’s silver screen.

The Boho Chic set provide all of the tools you need to become a 1970’s Bohemian beauty. With soft beachy waves and a glowing natural complexion, Katy Perry encapsulates this enchanting look with radiant inner confidence.

Inspired by this season’s color blocking trend, the New Wave set creates rad waves and curls. It’s an 80’s revival!

Each set includes the sleek ghd Gold Professional 1″ styler. The styler has contoured plates that create straight and curved styles. The plates heat up quickly, the device beeps when it reaches your desired temperature, and turns off after 30 minutes of inactivity – so you never have to worry that you’ve left it on and your house may be on fire. The styler comes with a plate-guard that protects the hot plates when the styler is switched off, allowing you to safely pack them away without damaging your belongings. Also included in the set are two sectioning clips and a step-by-step booklet showing you how to recreate iconic styles at home.

Each set is accompanied by a heat-resistant purse that is representative of that era: black satin evening clutch in the Glamour set, brown fringed clutch in the Boho Chic set, and black studded clutch in the New Wave set.

This week, Spoiled Pretty and ghd are teaming up and giving away one Iconic Eras set. A lucky winner will get to choose the set of her choice: Glamour, Boho Chic or New Wave! This prize package is worth $240!

Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron

When I showed up at work last week with a halo of shiny, bouncy curls, all of my co-workers wanted to know which salon I had visited. They were all very surprised when I told them that I styled my own hair – in 10 minutes, no less. They were even more shocked when I told them I didn’t own a curling iron.

So what’s my secret? Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron. It’s a three-in-one straightening, curling and wave making machine. The ultra-smooth, polished plates seals the hair cuticle and easily glide through hair, delivering high shine. The anti-slip edges capture all of the hairs, so that each section gets evenly straightened/waved/curled. The iron has adjustable temperature control that goes up to 450°F – and it heats up to the desired temp in less than 25 seconds – so even when I’m in a rush (which I always am these days), I never have to wait to style my hair.

What’s even better is that, in addition to basic black, it comes in…


The Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron retails for $160 and is available at Kinda pricey, I know…but when you consider that this one tool is all you’ll need to style your hair (it’s great for travel!) and how well it performs, you’ll realize that it’s worth the investment. Buy it now and you’ll thank me later.
