Crimped Hair

From poodle perms to monstrous mullets, the Eighties were rarely considered revolutionary in the hairstyle stakes, but there’s one retro style that’s unexpectedly rearing its crinkle-cut head once again – the crimp.

A look that’s attempted to break into the mainstream pretty much every decade since – think Britney and Christina Aguilera circa 2000 – here we are, in 2017, and crimped hair is officially back in vogue.

More relevant than ever, the hairstyle is infiltrating our Insta feeds and the runways with Gucci kickstarting the trend late last year with models flaunting their larger-than-life crimped dos.

Fast forward and the look has really taken off in the fashion world with hair at Marc Jacobs drawing inspiration straight from the 1980s, with fantastically dramatic height, while Adam Selman crimped and gathered his models’ locks into a bun. But, this isn’t a look reserved only for high fashion. Oh no, because GHD – arguably the most influential haircare brand on the planet – is launching its very own crimping tool. Enter, the GHD Contour.

In line with this season’s obsession with texture and 1980s-inspired looks, the brand is introducing the limited edition tool as part of the GHD nocturne collection and will be available for AW17 only.

“Texture and crimping is definitely back, but not as you know it,” says Adam Reed, GHD global ambassador.

“It’s now a lot softer and more subtle than it used to be, and it’s certainly more wearable.

“Crimping is a session stylist’s secret to creating incredible volume and big hair. We all carry a crimper in our kit as they’re incredible for adding volume and texture, so I’m thrilled to be involved in creating this new super tool for GHD!”

The Contour, just like the brand’s other tools, will feature advanced ceramic heat technology and multi-dimensional plates that will help you instantly add depth, volume and shape to any look.

China city bans second-time wedding banquets


A city in south-western China is banning wedding banquets for people marrying for a second time, in an attempt to curb public extravagance.

The authorities in Kaili, Guizhou province, have issued rules saying that only funerals and first-time weddings can be celebrated with banquets. They have also banned multiple feasts, and the use of different locations for one marriage ceremony, the Guizhou Evening Post reports.

A couple dance at their wedding banquet

The bride and groom must now register their intention to hold a banquet with their local government office, to ensure neither have been married before. Council officials cannot sanction a wedding bash without first filing the details with the relevant department, and must also give an account of spending on funeral banquets within ten days, including itemised bills for wine.


The ruling Communist Party launched a nationwide campaign against corruption, bureaucracy and ostentatious displays of wealth back in 2012, and the authorities in some regions have recently begun to rein in lavish marriage practices. As is usual in China, the rules are being rolled out on a trial basis to give the impression of public consultation, but are likely to be confirmed.

The latest ban has sparked a lively debate on China's popular Weibo micro-blogging site. Many people approve of the restrictions because of the wealth gap between prosperous cities like Kaili and rural areas of Guizhou, although some feel it should only apply to officials, who are most often seen as the beneficiaries of corruption. But some users find it "baffling" that people getting married a second time round can't mark it in style, and one complains that the council will "next rule on how many times a week a couple can make love".
