During the 1920s and 1930s, Japanese women began wearing their hair in a style called mimi-kakushi (literally, "ear hiding"), in which hair was pulled back to cover the ears and tied into a bun at the nape of the neck. Waved or curled hair became increasingly popular for Japanese women throughout this period, and permanent waves, though controversial, were extremely popular. Bobbed hair also became more popular for Japanese women, mainly among actresses and moga, or "cut-hair girls," young Japanese women who followed Westernized fashions and lifestyles in the 1920s.
Short hair for fashionable men was a product of the Neoclassical movement. Classically inspired male hair styles included the Bedford Crop, arguably the precursor of most plain modern male styles, which was invented by the radical politician Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford as a protest against a tax on hair powder; he encouraged his frends to adopt it by betting them they would not. Another influential style (or group of styles) was named by the French "à la Titus" after Titus Junius Brutus (not in fact the Roman Emperor Titus as often assumed), with hair short and layered but somewhat piled up on the crown, often with restrained quiffs or locks hanging down; variants are familiar from the hair of both Napoleon and George IV of England. The style was supposed to have been introduced by the actor François-Joseph Talma, who upstaged his wigged co-actors when appearing in productions of works such as Voltaire's Brutus (about Lucius Junius Brutus, who orders the execution of his son Titus). In 1799, a Parisian fashion magazine reported that even bald men were adopting Titus wigs, and the style was also worn by women, the Journal de Paris reporting in 1802 that "more than half of elegant women were wearing their hair or wig à la Titus."

Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy (see George I below), but became shorter in the mid-18th century, by which time they were normally white (George II). A very common style had a single stiff curl running round the head at the end of the hair. By the late 18th century the natural hair was often powdered to achieve the impression of a short wig, tied into a small tail or "queue" behind (George III).
Very happy with the ghd iv styler a replacement for my previous ones that I had for a good few years.money well spent.
Very pleased with this product I bought 2
Brant Mayfield, who styles everyone from Diane von Furstenberg to Nicole Scherzinger, favors this glossy white flat iron. "It has digital single pass technology, which helps for smoothness and contains an eternal microchip that maintains an even temperature," he says. The angled edges and ceramic plates will keep your hair smooth and without kinks.
Great price for a fabulous new flatiron I love the ghd brand I had a previous one it got fried when I went to paris due to voltage so the converter on this one is great
the best straightener I've had and I've had a ton. I also have thick frizzy hair and it tames it so well
I bought these to replace my daughter's which I had been using and which she wanted back. I was nervous about ordering as some of the feedback suggested that at this price they weren't genuine ghds and this is of course what I wanted as I've tried others and always come back to the ghds. I decided to take a chance and received a genuine set of ghds which are every bit as good as the one's I had to give up.
I was little concerned as some people mentioned getting fakes but this is the real deal. It is so slick that it is almost too slick the hair slide through really quickly.
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.
I love this product. I got it on Sunday and the same day I used it. I don't usually blow dry my hair because it takes me too long. I just let it air dry, but this Hair Drier is amazing. It took me less than 20 minutes to dry my entire hair. It's very practical, you can take it with you anywhere, I will be traveling and will take it with me. I will be using this every time after I wash my hair. I will not be using regular hair driers again. Truly recommended.
I love this straighter its the mercedes of all straighteners. It gets hot really quickly and doesn't burn my hair. The seller is great. The shipping was quick and painless I'm very pleased
I have not used this item nor will I given my hair is only about an inch long however I am sure my wife will use it after she gets it as a christmas present.i only wanted to post this review to say I had a concern that the product might be a knockoff even though it was coming straight from amazon but I registered it with ghd and it is a legit product. I will update the review later when she uses it. Hope this helps other buyers
Original ghd stylers registered them on the official website to make sure they were ghd would definitely recommend this product don't be deceived by the price they are definitely original
I love this straightener I have super long thick hair...naturally wavy frizzy. This straightens my hair easily. I used to have a chi but it eventually broke short in the wire...apparently this happens to all chis so I had to buy a new one. I think the ghd works better than the chi
I bought these to replace my older pair of about 8 years they are the best on the market worth the price you will not be disappointed I registered mine with ghd with the hologram code and date code with no problems this will prove authenticity for peace of mind.
I don't use the straightener very often but it has worked great for me. Gets very hot very quickly and does what it is suppose to do.
Loves how fast it heats up and great on long hair
this has become my favorite flat iron yet. Heats up very quickly gets the job done and is very lightweight. Worth the price
Best straightner I've ever used. Heats up quick. Perfect for straightning curls or beach waves. Very impressed.
amazing best hair straighteners I have ever used by far would definitely recommend to a friend
I love my new ghd professional original styler 1 inch. The dual voltage allows me to style my hair when traveling which was a real problem before. Compact to take on any trip. Love it
I have spent years and years looking for the ultimate set of straighteners but have always resisted the ghd's because of the price but I finally gave in and ordered a pair this sunday and they arrived today I can assure anyone that these are the real thing the serial number has been authenticated by the official ghd website. As for the results wow my hair has never felt or looked so good and I have fine curly frizzy hair I have even washed the car and guess what no frizz or curls please order them you seriously won't be disappointed
These straighteners heat up to 232 degrees in just 30 seconds so you can style your hair quickly and without fuss. The smooth plates glide through your hair; helping to smooth the fibres and give you a highly conditioned and glossy finish. Temperature is monitored 50 times per second which ensures that heat remains evenly distributed throughout the plates and your hair appears healthy and sleek.
Product just as described
Absolutely amazing I had a chi before this styling iron and was nervous about switching brands but I love this straightener. Heats up fast works well and leaves my hair feeling so smooth. Definitely recommend
Ordered on 15 dec 2016 got it today warrenty garanteed and validated 18 dec2016 for 2 years
absolutely love it the right size and high quality item. 100 Recommended it works perfect on my hair.
This set contains a ghd gold styler a heatproof plate guard a heat resistant mat a zip bag that contains a paddle brush and two large hair clips the zip bag press studs onto the mat and the whole lot rolls together for storage . This comes in a gorgeous gift presentation box that has a hidden magnetic fastening you may want to keep this to store it in as everything fits so nicely. Anyone who received this as a present should really appreciate it.the included instructions are brief and whilst they tell you how to turn the styler on and off and cover health and safety information they do not tell you how to get the best out of the styler or how to actually use it on your hair. The assumption seems to be you already know how to straighten your hair because you already have a ghd styler or you've used another brand before. I think this is a shame and seems a bit of an oversight as this gift set could be someone's first styler. I've had cheaper straighteners in the past which had quite a detailed page on how to get the best out of the straighteners . Yes you can find this information on the internet and on youtube but sometimes it's just nice to have it there to read when you open the box.having said that they do reach temperature quickly and straighten well you can tell why it's the brand leader. My previous straighteners you could alter the temperature but I'm quite happy with how these work at a set temperature and it's one less thing to faff around with. It has a 30 minute safety cut off for me this time could be shorter but at least it does have a cut off. I love that it comes with both a heat proof mat so many products just don't seem to and the heat proof plate guard as well.overall a gorgeous hair straightening gift set that anyone not already owning a ghd styler would love to have provided they do want to straighten their hair.
Bought these and have validated with ghd and they are authentic. My last pair of the same model lasted 13 years I travel internationally a couple of times each year and it is so easy to just plug into an adapter for the same power abroad.
wife loves this set best thing ever very pleased
I purchased these ghd straightners a few days ago and have been overly impressed with them. They are so far deinately the best pair of straightners I have ever purchased. My main concern was that they wouldnt be genuine but the ghd website said amazon was an approved seller and since haveing the straightners I have been able to register them so they must be genuine. I would definately recommend the straightners
