#TheLiveShoot with ELLE & the new GHD Platinum

Ever wanted to see what happens at a magazine photo shoot? Well you are in for a treat! This weekend we were invited to attend #TheLiveshoot with ELLE and the wonderful ghd.

ELLE have never before opened the door to the public to see what goes on behind the scenes of their shoots, so we were very excited to attend! The shoot was in collaboration with ghd showcasing the brand new platinum styler; this will be launching in the summertime and we can’t wait to reveal more about the amazing technology involved in this ground breaking hair tool!

The Event
Held in the New inns Yard, Shoreditch – the quirky location was perfect to set the mood for the first ever live shoot. Elle insider readers were also lucky enough to be invited to the event and the response was phenomenal, to give you a taste check out this instagram video below of the the queue.

The Treats

We were also greeted by the cutest cupcakes; the event was a treat from start to finish!

In addition to the shoot there was a hair station for ELLE insiders to try the new ghd platinum, this was accompanied by an army of ghd hair stylists who styled everyone’s hair to perfection with the new platinum, from sexy sleek to romantic curls – they looked amazing!
