From the 16th to the 19th century, European women's hair became more visible while their hair coverings grew smaller, with both becoming more elaborate, and with hairstyles beginning to include ornamentation such as flowers, ostrich plumes, ropes of pearls, jewels, ribbons and small crafted objects such as replicas of ships and windmills.[14][21] Bound hair was felt to be symbolic of propriety: loosening one's hair was considered immodest and sexual, and sometimes was felt to have supernatural connotations.[22] Red hair was popular, particularly in England during the reign of the red-haired Elizabeth I, and women and aristocratic men used borax, saltpeter, saffron and sulfur powder to dye their hair red, making themselves nauseated and giving themselves headaches and nosebleeds.[12][23] During this period in Spain and Latin cultures, women wore lace mantillas, often worn over a high comb,[14][24] and in Buenos Aires, there developed a fashion for extremely large tortoise-shell hair combs called peinetón, which could measure up to three feet in height and width, and which are said by historians to have reflected the growing influence of France, rather than Spain, upon Argentinians.[25]
my wife loves it very awesome. She looks great

Very happy with the ghd iv styler a replacement for my previous ones that I had for a good few years.money well spent.

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.
holy crap this hair straighter is awesome heats up hella quick and does an amazing job I have super thick long hair and it works wonders I had no problem registering it with ghd. It is hands down the most impressive straighter I have ever used. I don't think its possible to love a hair product more than I love this thing.
Fabulous straightener
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.
This is so much better than the drugstore purchased flat iron that I've been using. The ghd classic 1 inch styler heats up fast and maintains the perfect temperature while styling my hair. The extra long cord 9 feet is something that I'm going to have to get used to but I do see how it would be perfect for professional stylists to use in salons. The ceramic plates come together perfectly and there's even a little extra give when I squeeze them over my hair. I appreciate that this has a reset button on the plug to keep the user from getting shocked while using. I even loved how this arrived in a beautiful box. My hair looks great and I am looking forward to using this for years to come.
I have fine hair but a lot of it. I haven't straightened my hair in years so I finally decided it was time to buck up the necessary cash for a decent one.so far so great
love it totally worth it
When is a “big head” a positive instead of a negative? When the head is on a high-quality hair brush straightener, of course. This Glamfields product jumped to the top of our rankings because the Groom+Style review team simply loved the large size and shape of its rectangular brush head; it’s bigger and wider than on other straightening brushes, allowing it to grab more hair on each pass. That, plus the comb’s dense teeth, lets you get the job done more quickly, whether your hair is thick or thin, lustrous or dry. 

Gisele uses this flatiron. Need we say more? OK, maybe a little bit: From the same hairstylist whose blow-dryer launch nearly broke the Internet, this green-plated flatiron is equally as buzzworthy. It has plates that are larger than most other irons (meaning fewer passes) and rounded edges that prevent snagging or pulling. And because it shuts off automatically after an hour, it's ideal for those of us who constantly forget to unplug our flatiron before running out the door.
amazing

works just like my old one. Was able to register it so it's not a fake.


The V Gold Max Styler from ghd has great 5* reviews on lookfantastic; making it one of our all-time best hair straighteners. The larger plates on the styler make it ideal for thicker and curlier hair which needs extra heat to fully smooth the fibres. The contoured edges and wider plates also help create beautifully loose curls and waves; making it a great multi-tasking styler should you want a product which does more than straighten your hair.

My wife adores these straighteners from ghd.here first reaction was actually mild disappointment as the plates are a little smaller than she is used to but this is made up for by the straighteners being lighter and more comfortable to use.as always with ghd the presentation is excellent really playing on the limited edition colour scheme here that has a lovely icy metallic teal look.the carry case heat mat is nicely designed and practical a good example of the approach to manufacture and design here that results in a sleek but sturdy end product.

the ghds are what I expected but I have only had them a short time and some of the other reviews stated that they stopped working not long after they were purchased so hopefully this will not happen to me.
You may as well wear a sign that says “SLIPPERY WHEN WET” when styling with what’s affectionately called “hair grease.” Pomades give the appearance of high shine with a wet, “freshly-showered” look. This product is used for classic comb overs to slicked back, red-carpet looks. Traditionally pomades have been oil based and difficult to wash out, but over at Hanz de Fuko, we’ve fixed that problem...

I was a bit worried with buying a ghd hair straightener over the internet and I thought the cheaper price was too good to be true but I was able to do some research and was delighted to discover that the ghd I was sent was a genuine product it works great.

bought this as a replacement for the last pair. Purchased the same as before as tried and tested for years. Love ghd wouldn't have anything else

the best straightener that i’ve ever used.
I purchased this as a gift. The price was great. As an owner of this product I'm very happy with it.
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
Really good
It has ceramic plates, which work on all hair types to effectively smooth and add waves and curls, depending on your desired finish. The result is incredibly shiny and frizz-free locks, which look styled to perfection. The straighteners also have a unique hibernation mode, which means they will turn off automatically after 30 minutes, so you can be sure they can’t cause damage.
I absolutely love this hair straightner. My hair always looks great and feels so soft after I use it. I would suggest this product to anyone looking to buy a new straightner.
From the time of the Roman Empire[citation needed] until the Middle Ages, most women grew their hair as long as it would naturally grow. It was normally little styled by cutting, as women's hair was tied up on the head and covered on most occasions when outside the home with a snood, kerchief or veil; for an adult woman to wear uncovered and loose hair in the street was often restricted to prostitutes. Braiding and tying the hair was common. In the 16th century, women began to wear their hair in extremely ornate styles, often decorated with pearls, precious stones, ribbons and veils. Women used a technique called "lacing" or "taping," in which cords or ribbons were used to bind the hair around their heads.[14] During this period, most of the hair was braided and hidden under wimples, veils or couvrechefs. In the later half of the 15th century and on into the 16th century a very high hairline on the forehead was considered attractive, and wealthy women frequently plucked out hair at their temples and the napes of their necks, or used depilatory cream to remove it, if it would otherwise be visible at the edges of their hair coverings.[15] Working-class women in this period wore their hair in simple styles.[14]
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.
replaced my old ghd’s. After 10 years as I thought they were losing heat these are great I stuck to the same ones as I have had other straighteners and they weren’t as good these are the real deal and don’t damage my coloured hair better the devil you know I always say
A replacement as loved the first ghd straightener I bought.
