GHD - Ink on Pink Collection
For the first time ever, GHD has "tattooed" their innovative stylers. To celebrate 15 years of supporting breast cancer charities and more than $15 million raised globally, GHD has collaborated with tattoo artist David Allen to create an original design based on his acclaimed work in concealing mastectomy scars. Featuring a stunning ethereal floral design, placed on a delicate pink color, the Ink on Pink Collection is a beautiful tribute to those affected by breast cancer. The GHD Ink on Pink Collection contains a limited edition GHD Gold Professional Styler and a GHD Platinum+ Styler featuring Allen's artwork.
A Chicago-based tattoo artist, Allen started tattooing mastectomy scars in 2010, guiding women through one of life’s most traumatic experiences - recovery from breast cancer. For almost ten years now, David has made his mission to help women reclaim their femininity after breast cancer and take back control over their body. David’s work uses design principles to draw attention away from the scarring thanks to elegant and feminine floral patterns. But above the tattoo itself, what really matters to David is to stand as an advocate for these women and to enable them to make decisions for themselves. Because breast cancer takes away more than your hair, your breasts. It takes your confidence.
GHD will make a $10 donation with every Ink on Pink Collection purchase that supports Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national non-profit with programs and services to help people whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. LBBC’s mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support.
David Allen and his COLLABORATION WITH GHD
“The connection with GHD and this partnership makes sense. The amount of effort, thought and money they put into helping women with cancer all over the world is extraordinary. I know I chose to do it because I believed in the company.
When I work with my clients, it takes time, we build back their confidence together and these incredible women open up to me. Much like that time you spend with your hairstylist, that intimacy and power of transformation is akin to one another.
It’s beautiful to see how hairdressers enable women to feel beautiful. When you think of stylists and the time they spend with their clients - the validation that happens when you hear someone’s story, when you’re listening, when you’re present. That matters. There’s healing in that.
I see similarities between what I do and the role of a hairdresser during a sensitive time, like going through cancer and chemotherapy. Hairdressers will tell you what they know about their clients - you hear of tragedy, illness, pain and loss.
Stylists help in the process of reclaiming femininity especially during sensitive times when facing hair loss. There’s definitely synergy between my role and theirs - hairdressers enable women to feel beautiful and build in confidence." David Allen
