At most times in most cultures, men have worn their hair in styles that are different from women's. American sociologist Rose Weitz once wrote that the most widespread cultural rule about hair is that women's hair must differ from men's hair.[38] An exception is the men and women living in the Orinoco-Amazon Basin, where traditionally both genders have worn their hair cut into a bowl shape. In Western countries in the 1960s, both young men and young women wore their hair long and natural, and since then it has become more common for men to grow their hair.[39] During most periods in human history when men and women wore similar hairstyles, as in the 1920s and 1960s, it has generated significant social concern and approbation.[40]
During the First World War, women around the world started to shift to shorter hairstyles that were easier to manage. In the 1920s women started for the first time to bob, shingle and crop their hair, often covering it with small head-hugging cloche hats. In Korea, the bob was called tanbal.[28] Women began marcelling their hair, creating deep waves in it using heated scissor irons. Durable permanent waving became popular also in this period:[29] it was an expensive, uncomfortable and time-consuming process, in which the hair was put in curlers and inserted into a steam or dry heat machine. During the 1930s women began to wear their hair slightly longer, in pageboys, bobs or waves and curls.[13]
My hair stylist recommended this brand. It heats up quickly and has all the safety features. Love it
There are 12 heat settings on this brush with a selectable temperature range from 250-450°, so it can be used on all types of hair even though it’s best on thick locks. However, this model does not generate negative ions, which are the best weapon against frizz and create smoother, shinier hair. (The AsaVea 4 does use ionic technology and sells for a similar price, but the review team prefers the 3.0 because it uses MCH for more consistent heat delivery, doesn’t have brush tips that can catch on hair, and has more heat settings.)
best hair straightener ive have three of these straighteners and always love them. The only problem is that the cord shorts so be careful when you wrap it up. I would not recommend winding the cord around the straightener to put it away.
My ghds finally broke after over 10 years so bought a new set still as good as they always have been
However, the plates may be too narrow for those with long hair. Also, the heat settings do not indicate temperature so you don’t really know how much heat you’re exposing your hair to. Though, you are aware that the temperature range is 280 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Take note that there’s no automatic shut off feature. But for the price and performance, a lot of people are saying “hell yeah” to this product.

I'd had a pair of nicky clarke straighteners that I couldn't seem to get on with and when I was given some amazon vouchers for christmas decided to take the plunge and buy the ghd's that everyone raves about. Well now I totally get why they rave about them. Very easy to use they straighten my thick and wavy hair in seconds. No repeating sections one sweep and the hair is straight and sleek holding the style until the next wash.yes they're pricy but in this instance you get what you pay for.
With naturally curly read frizzy hair this miracle device is now my daily companion. Easy to use once you practice and only 15 minutes for really long hair.buy it you will love it ... And then start receiving amazing compliments about your gorgeous straight hair
By far this is the best flat iron I have owned. Heats up quickly and does the job. Definitely worth the money
Can't believe how quick it heats up plug it in and 10 seconds it is beeping. Works great on my hair and leaves a beautiful shine. I have purchased other flat irons for a lot more money and am really impressed with this one. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews that this maybe a fake. That wasn't the case. As soon as I received it I went on line and was able to register it with ghd with no problems. I would recommend this one.
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.
“Being a mom of two, it’s hard to have time to get my hair done, but with this, I do my hair in 30 minutes, rather than over an hour. I haven’t bought a new straightener in probably four years, and I bought this with very little expectations. OMG! First of all, not only did it take half the time to do my hair, but it left my hair as amazing as I always wanted it! Super silky-smooth. I then used it to make some curls on my 8-year-old. In less than 15 minutes, I was done with her hair and she was in love with the curls.”

keeps my wifes hair nice and straight for those rough nights.


ordered straight from amazon. Was able to register on ghd site love this straightner had a chi before but it broke after 5 years of having it and someone told me to try this and im glad I did
In short YES! You absolutely can use too much heat on your hair. Burning hair is not a good smell, it’s not a good look either! You may end up having to get a pretty severe haircut if you’re not careful about the amount of heat you put directly on your locks. Read through this to get an idea of what’s safe and what will leave you wishing for a good trim (or possibly a wig).

ohh yess I gotta love thiss one it doesnt pull ur hair pretty cool right I love it I straighten my hair in minutes and my hair is soo long long long like all the way to my waist omg I love this iron
I ordered these straighteners as I'd had a pair before that lasted me 7 years it takes only 10 minutes to straighten my long hair and I would highly recommend these to anyone. These straighteners were also fantastic value for ghds which are usually over 100. They were extremely well packaged and arrived in perfect condition I am over the moon
replacement for my girlfriend's straighteners her old model broke due to her accidentally dropping them down the stairs.previously straighteners were the best she has ever used guess what they were yup ghd iv stylershe won't use any others. Can't really comment anything else as I don't have enough hair to use them myself but she won't use any others
I was nervous after reading some reviews that others received a fake ghd. I had no problem registering this on their website and it looks identical to my old model which I bought for double the price four years ago.
ghd launched its first advertising campaign in 2003, as the sponsor of the British reality television show The Salon.[20] The company has also featured prominently on Australia’s Next Top Model.[21] In November 2009, ghd ran a popular series of advertisements titled ‘Twisted Fairytales', including depictions of characters such as Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella with the tagline "You can do anything with your hair".[22][23] Singer Katy Perry was named the face of ghd in December 2011.[24][25]
In 2004, ghd entered the North American market, bringing its total worldwide sales generating £37 million in revenue.[12] The Jemella Group, which owned the ghd brand, was bought by Lloyds Development Capital for £55 million in 2006.[7] It was sold eleven months later to Montagu Private Equity for £160 million.[13] Lion Capital, a British private equity firm, purchased ghd in February 2013 for approximately £300 million.[14]
...it works as promised my wife said she leaves the iron unplugged most of the time. It cools down and shuts down by itself.the item I got is original with circuit breaker on the plug.watch out for the fake ones. Fake ones usually just come with regular ac plug. Make sure to look for the safety circuit breaker plug.
great product
Purchased this straightener and I absolutely love it gets my hair straight a lot faster than the cheap ones. The cheap ones I had to go over and over my hair. This one works much better faster gets my hair nice and smooth. It also curls my hair well when I put a wave in it. It may be pricey but worth it. It also doesn't cool down. The cheap straighteners tend to loose their heat as you use them. This one stays hot

usual excellent quality. Never disapointed with ghd's


wow purchased to replace existing ghd straighteners but these are even better.
