I purchased this as a gift. The price was great. As an owner of this product I'm very happy with it.

I initially thought this was a copy but it seems to be 100 original. Strangely it does not come with the box or the dvd but otherwise matches the descriptions from others. A quick run through you tube and you can see all of the different styling options easily enough anyway. Have had this for quite a few months now and it still works good as new.
I was scared to buy this iron because of the other reviews. But I did and when I got it it was authentic I registered it on the ghd website with no problem
My favorite straightener ever so happy I bought it little expensive but does my hair in half the timemy old one did. And my old one was also an expensive one but another brand.
I read a number of reviews before purchasing this flat iron. I am happy to say that I was able to register mine on the ghd website with no trouble. I used it this morning and I love it. I have been having trouble with my bangs looking like they are fried. First my hair dresser and I though it was stress since I had just lost my husband three year later it's still happening. We have narrowed it down to hair spray building up and or my cheap flat iron. I am not longer using hair spray and am using a shampoo to cleanse my hair of any products and I purchased this flat iron. Wish me luck that this well help me get rid of the frizz in my bangs.
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.
Love love love this styler. I have very fine curly hair that requires washing or wetting every day to get the curls out. Now I can just re straighten it dry when ever I need a quick touch up. Never before had so many compliments.
The ghd classic 1 inch styler is the bomb it heats up in seconds after being turned on feels balanced and streamlined in my hand has a swivel cord that never gets tangled and safety guards at the tip to prevent accidental burns. I can now style my long hair in half the time it formerly took.
Hello, ladies! This is Monica, the founder of the MyStraightener blog. In this post, I’m going to tell you about the best flat irons on the market so far and some other hair straighteners. I will also give you some tips and tricks on how to choose the best straightening iron for your hair type. At the end of the post, I’m going to answer the most common questions about using flat irons. Gosh, we have so much to discuss! I hope you have some leisure time =)
My stylist recommended me to buy this. It is a bit pricey but I get the salon quality style at home. I waited for a discount and used my amazon points to help with the cost. It did sit in my quot wish list quot for awhile but it was worth the wait to get it somewhat cheaper.
So in the last two years I had been using chi straightens...both broke within a year. My next instinct was to do some flat iron research and came up with the ghd gold flat iron. The price made me nervous being that I've never tried it yet however I was desperate and knew that it would somewhat meet my needs. It's been a month that I've been using this heaven sent product and I have absolutely no regrets.it warms up in literally 10 seconds and gives you a beeping sound when it's ready. One slide through the hair will give you a straight look. I have semi wavy hair so I just apply my heat protectant and flat iron sections and within 15 minutes I'm done you won't regret this purchase. It's also dual voltage which helps me out big time due to travelling.
Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written about the best curling irons, hair dryers, and even a certain curling iron used on the Victoria’s Secret Angels before, we’re going deep on the best flat irons and hair straighteners on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)
After the war, women started to wear their hair in softer, more natural styles. In the early 1950s women's hair was generally curled and worn in a variety of styles and lengths. In the later 1950s, high bouffant and beehive styles, sometimes nicknamed B-52s for their similarity to the bulbous noses of the B-52 Stratofortress bomber, became popular. During this period many women washed and set their hair only once a week, and kept it in place by wearing curlers every night and reteasing and respraying it every morning. In the 1960s, many women began to wear their hair in short modern cuts such as the pixie cut, while in the 1970s, hair tended to be longer and looser. In both the 1960s and 1970s many men and women wore their hair very long and straight. Women straightened their hair through chemical straightening processes, by ironing their hair at home with a clothes iron, or by rolling it up with large empty cans while wet. African-American men and women began wearing their hair naturally (unprocessed) in large Afros, sometimes ornamented with Afro picks made from wood or plastic. By the end of the 1970s the Afro had fallen out of favour among African-Americans, and was being replaced by other natural hairstyles such as corn rows and dreadlocks.
I have very curly hair and used my friends styler and fell in love I bought this on amazon after reading the bad reviews. Beautifully packed in a very nicebox very easy to register b. So it’s not fake
Martin Penny, Gary Douglas, Susan Powls and Robert Powls founded ghd in 2001. The three collaborated to buy the rights to a hair straightening iron from a South Korean inventor. The brand quickly took off organically, and the company did not even begin advertising until two years after its launch. By then, hair salons and word of mouth carried ghd to £12 million, against a forecast of between £3 million and £4 million.
I just received my ghd classic sytler yesterday and registered it on ghd's website. It wasn't a fake and did my hair for the first time this morning with it and couldn't be happier with the results my hair feels so healthy I had tried a chi first returned it. Bought a croc which was better but still wouldn't tame my thick coarse hair without being on the 450 degree setting which made me nervous. I bought the ghd on the recommendation of a couple of friends who I trust. Read reviews on amazon and made sure to purchase the iron direct from amazon. Glad I did this flat iron is awesome my hope is that it lasts longer than a year
The bristles on a hair brush straightener should also be considered. Nylon is best for sensitive scalps or hair that doesn’t become a bird’s nest in the blink of an eye. Some straighteners have bristles tipped with tiny balls made of silicone, rubber or other materials, and they’re a better choice for women whose hair tangles easily because they help “cut through” the tangles without snagging. They’re more comfortable, too.
I was worried that this might be fake..but it's real I entered the code and said you're the chosen one . According to the other viewers don't buy ghd from anyone other than amazon llc . That's exactly what I did and it's real.i've always use a cheap conair flat iron ..it always snag my hair. I thought all flat iron are the same 30 vs 200 both has ironic place and same size..why pay more after using the ghd the 1st time I will never go back using my conair. Huge different...i wash my hair spray in leave in conditioner and once it's dry I spray heat protectant spray and then I flat iron. You do not need to go over the ghd twice..1 is enough. Took me 15mins and I have long hair down to my waist . Btw no snagging heat up in seconds and I will never relax my hair again thank you soo much..great deal.
The Mighty Mini Downtown Styler features lightweight, durable, and microscopically smooth titanium plates which can be used to create straight, wavy, and curly styles with a silky, snag-free finish. A ceramic heating element emits far-infrared heat which locks in moisture and protects the hair cuticle from damage. Reaching 400°F in under a minute, the ceramic produces negative ions which close the cuticle for smooth, shiny, frizz-free results.
hot immediately smooth easy to use recommended by my hairstylists and well worth the money have not owned a chi so can't compare.
I have curly hair and so it always took me much longer to straighten my hair. I saw my sister had this straightner and so I tried using hers and it took me about 10 min to get my hair totally straight anyways my other straightner had broke so I bought this one and it's really really good. Would very much recommend
If your hair is fine, fragile or damaged you have to be careful with the temperature. Your locks require the lower heat to reduce the damage. The maximum heat level that you can apply on thin or damaged hair is 350°F. But maybe you should start with lower temperature, something like 170°F – and see if this would work. Also, thin damaged hair requires a flat iron with narrow plates so that you will be able to straighten it in one pass.
Another excellent budget hot air styler is the Remington Style and Curl Air Styler and with 9 customer reviews giving 4.7 out of 5 stars I would recommend this product. This is a great on the go styler because it is lightweight so easy to pack away. It has two attachments so is suitable for medium length and shorter hair (25mm brush and 19mm brush) and has two heat and speed settings so you can set your curls and fast dry hair prior to styling. The Remington Style and Curl is good for flicks, curls and adding volume, giving a glossy, lustrous finish. Reviewers like the fact that it can be used on damp as well as dry hair and all say that it works a dream.
I was disappointed with these straighteners. They were my first pair of ghds and I was excited as I always had great results when i’d had my hair done at the hair dressers. I’d saved birthday money to buy them.however after just four uses they began to overheat dangerously nearly burning my hand and causing the electric to trip.i have since returned them as they were clearly faulty.however since sending them back I have borrowed my friends and they work fine so maybe I was just unlucky. Still they are not better than the other less expensive brand I had been using for years.i will say this the stylers I received were not the same as the ones in the picture and were vastly different than my friends. Hers are a lot smaller and the plates on the ones I sent back were very gold in colour while hers look like the dark gold in the picture for the product above.looking at the pictures of the different models online they looked more like the old style gold styler so I am not even sure I was sent the original ones. If I order a pair again I will be paying more attention when I open them in the future.
The ceramic plates on this hair straightener ensure that hair remains glossy and nourished even through the high-level of heat. A brilliant all-rounder for quick and effortless everyday styling, the ghd IV Hair Straightener can create both smooth locks and curls; making it a great multi-tasking product. Suitable for all hair types and lengths, the styler glides smoothly through the hair in one gentle action so snagging is reduced.
Tourmaline is an organic, prismatic crystal found in granitic rocks that is crushed into a fine powder and layered onto the surface of the plate. Tourmaline is great because heat is more consistent and evenly distributed through the plate. Also, it produces more negative ions than ceramic with less heat. This means that you not only get more control, but you also get better results and expose your hair to less damage. It’s the newest entry in the heat styling industry so hair straighteners with tourmaline tend to be pricier. Some hair straighteners like the HSI Professional Glider infuse both ceramic and tourmaline to boost the number of negative ions produced.
I was delighted to get this set as I am a carer for a young woman who has long hair which she loves to have straightened after washing. Her old straighteners have recently packed up so these could not have come at a better time.beautiful set by a well known and trusted brand who are known to produce good quality straighteners.this set comes with clips paddle brush and the straighteners plus a heat mat wrap.in use they are amazing and hands down the best straighteners i’ve ever used for my client who has quite thick hair. She absolutely adores them and loves being able to boost her confidence with a well groomed hair style.i am guessing these have been produced for the christmas shopping period and they are a beautiful luxury gift for anyone who has hair long enough to need them. The box is a very pretty gold colour and I can see it looking pretty on a dressing table.
beautiful looking and feel very good quality. They are designed to be very comfortable to hold and I love that they switch on and heat up in seconds. They come with a mat to protect surfaces from burns and a good travel case. The cable is a decent length. Best of all they do a brilliant job on my hair and don’t seem to dry it up despite daily use. Unlike my old straighteners I have managed to avoid burnin myself too.
Was worried following some negative reviews about this not being a genuine ghd product. However product arrived with ghd tag with details on how to register with ghd. This was done on the official ghd website and ghd have verified the product.
