Love it worth every dollar leaves hair smooth shines. Comes with registration for ghd for any warranty issues.
I love this flat iron. It doesn't burn my hair and leaves it feeling soft obviously with use of hair products.

Genuine article. 6 Months on no problems second set of ghd's. They are the best.
this flat iron blew my mind. It did in 5 minutes what my chi did in a half hour. One pass over hair and its done. Incredible.
I love this flat iron. My hair is smooth and health.
This is a beautifully presented ghd gift set with a hairdryer and hair straighteners that feel tactile and look aesthetically very pleasing. You also get a hairdryer nozzle for precision drying a heat resistant mat and a heatproof plate guard for the straighteners these are located under the plastic tray packaging inside the box so don’t forget to lift it out .the hairdryer feels like a good weight but the weight is evenly distributed so it feels comfortable to hold and maneuverer around your head. It’s got two speed settings three heat settings plus a true cool shot button. It’s overall quieter and more comfortable to use than my old tigi joystick hairdryer which i’ve been using for the past few years and has a much longer body shape. I like the heat variations available as the middle setting provides gentle heat which isn’t always available especially with hairdryers that only have 2 heat settings available other than that it’s no better or worse than other hairdryers i’ve experienced.the straighteners are the quality you would expect from ghd and they are very much styled around the classic straighteners if you are familiar with them except instead of an on off switch there’s a button you have to press button down for a couple of seconds. I admittedly don’t like the button as it’s hard to tell whether the straighteners have been turned off after use as you can’t see the pale blue led in a bright sunny room. The straighteners heat up very fast though in about 15 seconds and there is a nice safety feature included where the straighteners will turn off automatically after 30 minutes if they have been hastily abandoned left on. The straighteners feel a bit hotter than my classic ghd’s but I haven’t located any info about the temperature so I can’t be sure of this. They are effective though I have fine medium length hair and it only takes a few minutes to straighten and my hair feels smooth and looks shiny and healthy.i’m really pleased with my ghd set everything feels so well made and they feel like luxury products built to last time will tell if this is true of course but it’s all working well as it should be at the moment. The box packaging really adds to the whole luxury feel of it all too so it feels like a well earned treat to purchase for yourself and I think it also makes a special gift for someone that you know they can enjoy using everyday.
These are my 2nd pair of ghd s and I wouldn t buy anything else. They are definately the best. They don t pull on your hair like some cheaper straighteners and they heat up really quick. They last for years my first pair which are still working fine were bought in 2008 10 10
I love this one had one before it broke used another for about a year glad to be back. Doesn't overheat.
Just because you were blessed with a head of naturally straight hair, doesn’t mean hair straighteners aren’t for you! Hair straighteners are a great way to style the split ends that are all too common with straight hair types and can also give your hair a natural-looking curve for added volume! When shopping for the best hair straightener for your naturally straight hair, you will want to look for the following:
The 9-foot power cord means you never have to worry how far away the outlet is from where you’ll be styling your hair. It is more expensive than some of our other picks but it’s not as expensive as the BabylissPRO. However, it doesn’t have an automatic shut off feature and the temperature range only reaches 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, there have been reports from users that their HAI Classic only lasted a year or two.
I have gone through 3 chi straighteners my whole life and I was a loyal chi person. My friend recommended the ghd and it is amazing and so much better. Silky hair and doesn't make my hair flat
I purchased this product after trying my friend's out. It was so much better than the cheap o conair I had been using that I immediately ordered one for myself.the product came in the beautiful ghd box that is in the picture. The box does say it was manufactured in p.r.c. But I was able to register my straightener on the ghd website using the codes on the straightener's hologram and label. Excited that I got a great straightener for a great price.
FHI’s rounded edge allows you to easily curl or add waves without much effort. It’s almost as small as a travel flat iron, and I love that it straightens even the poofiest sections with just a single pass. But don’t just take my word for it, listen to Beyoncé (via InStyle): “I’m crazy about it! I can’t live without my flatiron! It takes me about an hour to do my hair, and the only time I don’t is when I’m on vacation.”
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.
Fine or thinning hair can easily become damaged under too much heat, so cooler temperatures (i.e., those under 300° F) are ideal for these hair types. If you have very curly, course, or thick hair, then higher temperatures upwards of 400° F may be more suitable to your needs. With the ISA Professional Titanium Flat Iron, you can cool it down to 265° F if need be and also crank it up to a whopping 450° F for textured styled.
Between 27 BC and 102 AD, in Imperial Rome, women wore their hair in complicated styles: a mass of curls on top, or in rows of waves, drawn back into ringlets or braids. Eventually noblewomen's hairstyles grew so complex that they required daily attention from several slaves and a stylist in order to be maintained. The hair was often lightened using wood ash, unslaked lime and sodium bicarbonate, or darkened with copper filings, oak-apples or leeches marinated in wine and vinegar. It was augmented by wigs, hairpieces and pads, and held in place by nets, pins, combs and pomade. Under the Byzantine Empire, noblewomen covered most of their hair with silk caps and pearl nets.
These are not a good as the origanal ghds. I use them for curling but it’s as if they don’t get hot. They don’t seem as smooth on the hair either
Thankfully, we’ve learned a lot about hair care and preserving your hair’s natural integrity while styling. However, this wasn’t always the case. If you ever had a perm done in the 80’s or teased your hair to holy heaven in the 90’s, chances are pretty good that your hair has endured a bit of damage. The same can be said if you color your hair on a regular basis or recently went from your natural brunette color to a bright platinum blonde. No matter how the damage was caused, there are certain features you will want to shop for when selecting the ideal hair straightener for your course hair type:
My daughter has long hair and loves the effects of the ghd styler. She even uses it to put waves in her hair.
We know that to colour and straighten our hair is abuse so far better to buy products which reduce that damage.these straighteners are slightly heavier than my other ghds but they're more comfortable to hold.they reach maximum temperature within seconds and the plates glide smoothly across the hair to leave it as smooth shiny and silky as though your hair was always that way.these have a safety feature which shuts off power after 30 minutes of inactivity so no need to rush back home fearing that you'd left them switched on.they also come with a heat resistant silicone cover which protects them during transport.i would always recommend using a hair care product to protect your hair whilst using any straighteners. However having been tempted to buy cheaper straighteners in the past and watching my hair fry over the months I'd used them I would recommend that you buy the best straighteners that you can afford and these are worth every penny.
Perukes or periwigs for men were introduced into the English-speaking world with other French styles when Charles II was restored to the throne in 1660, following a lengthy exile in France. These wigs were shoulder-length or longer, imitating the long hair that had become fashionable among men since the 1620s. Their use soon became popular in the English court. The London diarist Samuel Pepys recorded the day in 1665 that a barber had shaved his head and that he tried on his new periwig for the first time, but in a year of plague he was uneasy about wearing it:
Each flat iron has its own 15-digit code on hologram which can be verified at GHD website. - One 1" ghd flat iron with cap. Smoother gold plates glide effortlessly through the hair to make straightening on all hair types and lengths even quicker and easier, while their contoured edges help to create perfect curls and waves, all with a high shine, salon-style finish.
Arrived on time product just as described this is my second pair of ghd's and I wouldn't be without them. A girls best friend. Would definitely recommend.
Had to buy a new one since mine was lost in luggage. Couldn't be happier to have it back

You cannot fault quality and excellence both things we have come to expect from ghd. Some brands are hyped for no reason but ghd is a case of 'you get what you pay for' and what you get in this instance is very good indeed. The perfect christmas gift for the wife mum partner daughter in your life. You can rely on this brand I assure you.
Heats up quickly and works great at straightening my hair.
You need to make sure that your flat iron is very light, feeling comfortable in your hand as you style your hair. You’ll also want it to have a tangle-free cord because that’s just a hassle you don’t want to have when you’re focusing on doing your ‘do right. Or, you can just go for a cordless hair straightener to get rid of that potential problem altogether.
I like soo much I needed a product like this. Really it is the best in the market. The price was the best too
my styler seems to be legitimate and has the shiny sticker and seems to be correct in all other ways. It does indeed work so that really is all that matters. I was given this free for an honest review. I have to say overall I like this styler. It is the perfect size for my hair as it is short and medium in thickness. The styler it self is a little heavy to hold up for long periods so just be warned about that and it rolls on my counter top. It heats up quick and works great though and I love that I can curl or straighten and it has an auto shut off in case I forget to turn it off that is the best feature to any styler in my opinion so I do not burn my house down . Also this one in particular looks very nice not that it matters for functionality but it is a pretty iron. I was able to straighten my hair in far less time than my previous straightener and it seems also I am not using nearly as much heat. So I love this styler and my only complaint is that it is a bit clunky to hold.
In ancient civilizations, women's hair was often elaborately and carefully dressed in special ways. Women coloured their hair, curled it, and pinned it up (ponytail) in a variety of ways. They set their hair in waves and curls using wet clay, which they dried in the sun and then combed out, or else by using a jelly made of quince seeds soaked in water, or curling tongs and curling irons of various kinds.
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.
this is my third ghd flat iron. Great quality. Won’t fry your hair. Everything else takes a back seat to ghd.
great quality. I've had this for years now. I'm a black female with 3b hair. This styler is amazing. Sedu and ghd have never let me down.
Yes I would recommend this to friends my husband bought it for me and I love it works great
With so many models and styles to choose from, it can be hard to find the right hair straightener for your medium or long hair. That’s why we love the Cloud Nine Original Flat Iron! This straightener is ideal for users with medium to long hair; this hair straightener can tame even the most stubborn tresses. Featuring 1-inch plates and low, medium, and high heat settings, this flat iron is ideal for anyone with thick or lengthy hair.
so the nice thing about this one is that it does heat up very fast and it has a fast recovery rate. I have thick curly hair not wavy. So for me it works. However the curls do start to show alittle resistance by the end of the day. This model as one temp max of I think 380 degrees isn't hot enough for my hair. I think I need like 400 degrees. However the brand itself has been awesome as the plates on it doesn't caulk up with products and doesn't snag my hair. It is definitely better than anything you can buy at a store. I am okay to use it but if it breaks I will find one with a temperature settings.
This safety feature ensures that you never have to worry about forgetting to turn off your hair straightener, especially when you were in a hurry to get going. Flat irons with this feature automatically turns off after 60 to 80 minutes of run time. The Infiniti Pro by Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron, for example, shuts down after 60 minutes so you never have to worry that you’re coming back to a burned down house just because you forgot that your flat iron was still on.
One of the biggest problems you will face when using a heated hair styling tool is overheating. We’ve all been there: you’re casually straightening your hair when a particularly funny scene comes up on the show you have playing in the background. After a solid minute or two of laughter, you realize (in utter horror!) that your poor hair has been sandwiched in between a couple of hot plates the entire time.
EDITOR’S CHOICE: CHI has and always will be a powerhouse brand in the hair straightener industry, and the company’s new G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron is no exception! Packed with ceramic and titanium technology, this hair straightener was designed to give you silky, shiny styles without snags. We also love its easy-to-read, color-coded temperature settings, so you know the temperatures that you are using at any given time!
The plate is the part of the hair straightener that heats up and used to press your hair. Now, hair straighteners come in different plate materials and sizes. Most plates have a width of 1 inch which work for most people and that’s perfectly fine. However, to really get the most out of your flat iron, you’ll need to consider your hair and styling needs when deciding plate size.
Physical factors include natural hair type and growth patterns, face and head shape from various angles, and overall body proportions; medical considerations may also apply. Self-image may be directed toward conforming to mainstream values (military-style crew cuts or current "fad" hairstyles such as the Dido flip), identifying with distinctively groomed subgroups (e.g., punk hair), or obeying religious dictates (e.g., Orthodox Jewish have payot, Rastafari have Dreadlocks, North India jatas, or the Sikh practice of Kesh), though this is highly contextual and a "mainstream" look in one setting may be limited to a "subgroup" in another.
I brought these for my sister for her birthday in april. She lives the other side of the country so I had to get them delivered straight to her. The delivery was very fast and they left out the receipt as requested gift option so my sister wouldn't know how much they cost. She's been wanting a set of ghds for years and has had disappointment with 2 sets of fakes so the first thing she did was register them on the ghd website and all genuine she's since told me that they were definitely worth the wait they're easy to use quick to heat up and turn off after a while if you forget to turn them off which is very good for her since she forgets half the time definitely worth the money.
