Professional styling tool product reviewghd classic one inch flat ironthe ghd flat iron is a high performance professional styling tool. This is the original classic styler that is perfect for straightening and curling all hair types and lengths.features of product • ceramic plates for smooth hair• automatic shut off after 30 minutes of use• reaches a 350 to 365 degree temperature in under 40 seconds• rounded barrel• 8 foot styling cordpro’s • 2 year manufacturer’s warranty• guaranteed product authenticity• secure online payments• ordering tracking is availablecon’s • no heat control but preset temperature does not burn hair• high cost but is also a high quality producti purchased my ghd straightener in december of 2013. It still works just as well as the first day I bought it. It is a very quality and reliable flat iron that holds up to its award winning standards. Since buying this product I have noticed more shine to my hair as well as little to no frizzing. It is effective in keeping my hair straight and smooth all day. In fact I have had friend’s use this styling tool and purchase it after using it because they loved how quick and easily it flat ironed their hair.before I purchased the ghd I used a chi flat iron compared to a chi straightener the ghd keeps my hair looking healthier and less dry. After using this product I would not return to using a chi straightener because of the positive effect the ghd has had on my hair. Although the cost is high it delivers the promised performance. This product is designed for men and women with thick and curly hair looking to straighten their hair in a fast and healthy way. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that flat iron’s his or her hair on a regular basis
“The temperature of the iron can determine the curl pattern on hair that tends to fall easily, as you might need a higher heat to lock in the pattern closer to the root,” she added. “The internal components of the irons also can determine the curl pattern, and that is why it is important to invest in custom, high-end tools that contain internal heaters that go the entire length of the barrel. The higher the heat, the stronger the curl will essentially be. Low heat will produce a softer finish.”
The ability to create bouncy curls or waves with a flat iron (we know, it seems counter-intuitive!) is a biggie in the beauty industry and merits a bit more discussion. If you’re totally lost and there aren’t enough video tutorials on the planet to explain this weird yet awesome process, don’t worry! Just follow along with our step-by-step guide and you will be curling with the best of them in no time!
If you lived through this particular time in our world history, then you probably remember the super straight hairstyles that we all sported a time or two (bonus points if you took a photo of yourself like this in your bathroom mirror using a digital camera!). For reasons we may never know for certain, sharp and straight hair was the hairstyle of choice back in the early 2000’s giving the good old hair straightener somewhat of a bad reputation.
This set oozes quality. First of all it comes in a very classy custom box sealed with a removable band and housing the hairdryer and styler beautifully. The dryer and styler are the first thing you see when you open the black and gold magnetically clasped box and the protective mat instructions and styler cover are underneath the packaging. It all looks top quality and would be a brilliant gift idea.the dryer has a good weight and excellent build quality and isn’t that loud thankfully. Also the heat is only really felt as you draw the dryer nearer the hair so if you back it away it feels significantly cooler. It dries beautifully powerfully and directionally if you use the removable nozzle. There is the obligatory ring to hang it from and it doesn’t seem to get hot. My only slight criticism is the order of the control buttons. The heat settings are the top switch on the handle and the power is underneath which means having to manoeuvre it a bit to turn it off. Personally i’d have switched these around as I don’t often change the heat setting but I do turn it on and off a lot.the styler is the same excellent build quality as the dryer and comes with a neat cover to slip over the ends to keep them together when not in use. They are what you might expect from ghd a quality item that feels great to use and looks fabulous.if you want a quality dryer and styler set to give as a gift or you just really want to really spoil yourself with a bit of styling luxury this is the kit to buy. Love it
Thick, coarse hair can withstand high heat AND it responds better to it. Using high heat also means that you minimize the number of passes you’ll make which will benefit your hair’s health. You’ll want a hair straightener that has adjustable heat settings with a maximum temperature reaching the 400-degree range like the HAI Beauty Concepts 1.25″ Classic Convertable Flat Iron.
since my 10 year old ghds finally packed in a year ago I've been using a well known but inferior brand which were much cheaper and have really noticed the difference my hair took longer to style and was drier and frizzier than when I was using the ghds. Therefore these straighteners were a real treat to use.they heat up in a few seconds and give a 'beep' warning signal when they're ready to use. The paddles are narrow but plenty wide enough for my short thick hair. My hair glided through smoothly without tangling or pulling leaving my hair smooth shiny and straight.these straighteners come with a very long 2.7m cable. Unfortunately it has one of those rounded plugs which are really difficult to pull out of the socket. This didn't bother me too much as I leave mine plugged in and switch the socket on and off as required. On that note for safety reasons the straighteners start beeping after a few minutes of not being used and switch off completely after 30 minutes.for me ghds will always be worth the money. These come with a 3 year warranty and my previous pair lasted 10 years so I think they're a great investment.
I borrowed this straightener from my friend when we were in vegas and I fell in love with it. I love the fact that it heats up almost instantly and is very lightweight. It made my hair silky and smooth. I had to get the straightener for myself and purchased it at a beauty supply store. This straightenr is well worth the investment. I replaced my old herstyler with my new ghd and I'm never going back
Historically, working-class people's haircuts have tended to be practical and simple. Working-class men have often shaved their heads or worn their hair close-cropped, and working-class women have typically pulled their hair up and off their faces in simple styles. However, today, working-class people often have more elaborate and fashion-conscious hairstyles than other social classes. Many working-class Mexican men in American cities wear their hair in styles like the Mongolian (shaved except for a tuft of hair at the nape of the neck) or the rat tail (crewcut on top, tuft at the nape), and African-Americans often wear their hair in complex patterns of box braids and cornrows, fastened with barrettes and beads, and sometimes including shaved sections or bright colour. Sociologists say these styles are an attempt to express individuality and presence in the face of social denigration and invisibility.
pricey yes but what can I say daughter swears by ghd's no substitute no point buying cheaper brands. If she's happy then so am i. Her second paid of ghd's in 10 years so good value.
Love this tool. Works great in every way.
The Revlon Perfect Heat works best on partially dry hair. Hot air blows from inside the brush while the soft bristles spin to take the curl out of your hair. Alternatively, you can leave the ends of your hair curly while straightening the rest. You can also turn off the spin function if desired. The added benefit of a unit that has hot air blown from the inside is that you don’t have to wait for the straightener to heat up.
very good hair straightener.
heats up so fast and does a great job straightening my hair I am not the most coordinated person and even I can use this.
These would be an ideal christmas gift as they are presented in a smart black and gold box with a lovely black padded storage bag and heat resistant mat heatproof guard paddle brush and hair clips.once the straighteners are plugged in they will beep when turned on and then beep again after a couple of seconds when they are ready to use and it is a couple of seconds they heat up so quickly I have never used ghd’s before so all I can say is ‘you get what you pay for ‘. They heat up so quickly and they glide through your hair. There was no pulling and you don’t have to use any resistance or even go over the same piece of hair time and time again.the only negative I can think of is the price they are very expensive and there are a lot of cheaper alternatives.however I think they are definitely worth paying for.
Good value ghd brought for my daughter. She is pleased with it and so far no complaints. It does what it says on the tin.
love this straightener. It heats up really quickly and will automatically shut off after a while an hour I think if it hasn't been used. It only has one heat setting. Also it's universal voltage so I was able to travel overseas with it very easily.
These glacial blue stylers are gorgeous. Slimline but not compact they come in the standard heatproof carry wrap favoured by and included with all ghd products. These make an excellent gift. They come enclosed in a gorgeous sturdy high quality box. The stylers themselves heat up nice and quickly usable in no time at all. For cooling down this takes a while and I'd definitely recommend to use the mat provided for safety. Well manufactured and a quality product as expected from this brand.
Ghd's are the best for a reason I brought these for my fianc which she loves and quote ghd's are the best this was her best christmas present out of the bunch delivery was fast too
I have been looking to replace my chi flat iron for some time as it seems to really damage my fine hair. My stylist used the ghd but I figured no way was I gonna pay the high price. So I searched online and found this deal. I was worried it might be a knock off not authentic. However the box came sealed with registration information with the company. It is the real deal and I registered it for the warranty. It works so much better than the chi only requiring 1 or 2 swipes through my hair to create the look. It heats up fast too which I appreciate when I am in a rush. Don't delay this is the best price you will find for this product and you won't regret it
I have owned a ghd flat iron for about 3years. My daughter borrowed it on a daily basis. Decided to get her one of her own for christmas. I highly recommend the ghd.
fast shipping easy product to use and always reliable this is my second ghd only because I dropped my first one so much that it finally broke after 3 years. Love these straighteners over a chi
Love ghd this was the cheapest price if your shopping around
Think of this as an updated version of your regular hairbrush. Its double negative ion technology gives your hair that glass-like shine without any static whatsoever. Its ceramic bristles with nylon cool-tips help keep damage to a minimum by releasing far-infrared heat — in a mere moment, it penetrates the outer layer of the hair cuticle and heats it from the inside out.
I purchased this item almost a year ago and it's still working as well as when I first bought it. Strongly recommend to someone who wants their hair to look great and wants it to last longer than the typical hair straightener.
My husband bought this for me as I was still using my expensive australian straightener here in the states. We knew how good amazon's return policy was so we ordered it knowing that we may possibly be buying a fake. Had a problem registering it on the website the first time only due to their site being temporarily under maintenance. No problems the 2nd time. The only difference with my product is the colour of the plates. Mine are black the picture shows cream . Pretty sure this is just because the photo is older.no complaints so far.
why did I wait so long to buy these straightners they are fantastic I have had another make for years and thought they were good for my hair which is thick and strong. Since using ghd I now know why friends have been asking me to get ghd. My hair is so much sleeker. Great
If you are unsure what exactly your hair type is (or if it has changed over the years, which happens more often than you’d think!), check out this incredible overview by the hair professionals at Redken! Don’t stress if you have combination hair (i.e., fine and curly or thin and straight) either; we recommend choosing a hair straightener based on your biggest hair complaint and focusing on that problem first. So, if your curls are driving your nuts, you will want to select a hair straightener with higher temperatures, thin hair needs moisture, etc. You’ll find that your entire hair type can usually benefit from the extra TLC!
Heats up fast. Does not rip hair or get hair caught in crevices. Works on thick curly middle eastern hair. Works great and quick on wavy hair also

great set of 'original' ghd's... Had similar back in the 90's and I loved them then. I had them for years before they gave up then I tried various other cheaper makes of straightners as well as some of the limited edition ghd's ...none as good as my original ghd's. Noticed these at a good price and bought them in time for the christmas festivities I have no regrets love them
I love this flat iron. My hair is smooth and health.
The shorter your hair is, the narrower plates you need to straighten it properly. I have to admit, most flat irons don’t work well on really short hair. The most common width of plates is something about 1 inch, at least in my rating. If you have really long locks you can try a straightener with 2-inches long plates – for instance, the Xtava flat iron.
these work very well as do all ghd straighteners. I have used ghds for years and once I discovered them I never looked back. I can straighten my hair in half the time compared to other similar products and my hair feels better and less damaged afterwards too. I have also received fantastic after sales service from ghd before as well so I trust the brand. These are no different they are well made and the design looks classy while they straighteners themselves do a good job and didn't leave my hair feeling frazzled and fried. The kit itself is decent in the box there were the straighteners of course a heat mat a bag to keep the straighteners in a protective 'end' to put over the hot parts of the straighteners two professional hair clips to hold your hair back while straightening and a paddle brush. These seem to all fit in the bag so it is very useful if you are travelling or even just storing it between uses. The cable is long enough to make using them a doddle and the auto switch off will help ease your mind if you are on your way to work and wondering if you have turned them off despite all this I have knocked a star off purely because they don't work as well as my ghd pinks these leave my hair feeling smooth and silky and the gold set just doesn't seem to do this quite as well. Nevertheless I would still buy them over any other brand out there.
Good value ghd brought for my daughter. She is pleased with it and so far no complaints. It does what it says on the tin.
The InfinitiPro by Conair has extra-long 1-inch tourmaline ceramic floating plates with 30 different heat settings (maximum heat is 455 degree Fahrenheit) and an extra long swivel line cord. It is perfect for creating silky smooth, straight hair or shiny curls. You can use it whether you’re hair is delicate, medium, or thick and hard-to-straighten. AND it has an automatic shut-off feature. It only takes 15 seconds to heat up which means that you can style your hair pretty quickly. However, like our first pick, the settings do not indicate the temperature. Also, the handle can get very warm. The plates also do not completely close unless you put quite a bit of pressure on them. It also doesn’t feature a safety latch that will keep the flat iron closed when you put it down while it’s still hot.
I have been coveting one of these stylers since I borrowed a friend's in the uk in 2007... And I finally got one and it's an authentic one I suspect amazon's prices are low to compete with all of the vendors selling fakes on here which is a shame for them but worked out just fine for me. Make sure you select the one that's shipped from and sold by amazon the main page for this product seems to rotate between several vendors not all of them trustworthy and right now I have to check the little more buying choices sidebar to find the one sold by amazon itself. They were the main vendor for this page when I ordered but they're not now so it looks like it changes out.i was able to register mine with ghd's website and everything looks feels like the quality you'd expect from something that usually retails for almost twice what you'll pay for one here so I'm pretty positive it's legit.i've been using a chi for the last 8 years. The same chi. It's held up well clearly and still works but it just doesn't heat like it used to and its time has been up for a while now. It's served me well I'd read some reviews in several places saying that their quality had dropped off and I still remembered how wonderful the ghd I'd tried had been and that was when my chi was still in its prime so in looking to replace my straightener I really wanted to see if I could find an authentic ghd at a reasonable price. And I did I've only had my ghd for a few days now so I can't attest to its longevity I somehow doubt anything will ever compete with its predecessor on that front anyway but it works like an absolute dream. The first time I turned it on I was sure something wasn't working quite right because it gave me the all heated up beep so rapidly under 15 seconds. But no. Ready to go. It slid through my hair like butter leaving nothing but smoothness in its wake. My ends don't feel all frazzled like they do when I use cheaper straighteners and I can get pretty substantial waves out in a single pass with minimal styling product. And it goes into sleep mode after 30 minutes which is wonderful did I leave the hair straightener on is my personal equivalent of the old did I leave the gas on worry.a fantastic product for an excellent price and I couldn't be happier. Just choose your vendor wisely and make sure to check authenticity on their website
