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
great ghd styler . Very happy with them
Very quick to heat up and they are much hotter than any other styler I have used. Love that they can be used when travelling abroad with dual voltage. Thanks to my sister for recommending this product.
In many cultures, including Hindu culture and among the Wayana people of the Guiana highlands, young people have historically shaved off their hair to denote coming-of-age. Women in India historically have signified adulthood by switching from wearing two braids to one. Among the Rendille of north-eastern Kenya and the Tchikrin people of the Brazilian rainforest, both men and women shave their heads after the death of a close family member. When a man died in ancient Greece, his wife cut off her hair and buried it with him, and in Hindu families, the chief mourner is expected to shave his or her head 3 days after the death.
The bentley of ceramic flat irons. Review done by a 25 year professional hair stylist my wife . We have over 6 different flat iron similar to this. This one by far is the most well thought out designed. It is light weight the opening spring is not to strong as to cause fatigue under long use. The heat computer intelligently senses and heats the ceramic pads as not to damage the hair. Automatic shut off is great. It heats up very fast and has led light indicator easy to see. The 90 degree cord swivels and makes use really easy not only for home but also for professional use. The rounded tip design doubles it as curl iron. The result is a long lasting shiny beautiful hair do.highly recommended.
I have extremely kinky curly hair. This flat iron is amazing best buy thus far. It is a little expensive but if you want your hair pin straight or even have nice curls buy this heats up in 2 seconds and takes me no time to straighten my hair. Hopefully it's durable and lasts.
“Infrared is so beneficial being that the wavelengths are longer and can penetrate deeper into the cuticle heating the hair from the inside out, keeping your hair's own natural moisture, leaving the hair smooth (and) shiny and keeping it extremely healthy, versus other conventional styling tools that actually pull moisture out of the hair, leaving the hair dry, brittle, dull and damaged,” said hair expert and stylist Gina Rivera.
Love it I've had the exact same one for probably fiveish years and it finally took a crap on me. I just bought this exact same one again because I loved it so much I didn't want to risk getting a different kind only to be disappointed. My favorite part is that it heats up within seconds and doesn't pull your hair like a lot of straighteners do.
so let me clear up some of the mixed reviews. When you click on the link to this straightener the ghd classic styler the item is sold by different sellers. So someone who buys today may not buy from the same place that had the straightener yesterday. Which explains why some have received fakes. Click on the seller read the reviews about them do your research.however with that being said I purchased mine from salon logistix my ghd was authentic and I was able register it with the ghd site. I straightened my hair 30 minutes ago with it and am so happy with my purchase. I have natural caucasian hair but my waves are deep and usually take a couple passes to go away. This straightener ironed them out in about 2 passes. It heats up in seconds makes little beeps when turned on and hot and never snagged my hair huge problem with my chi . I would definitely recommend this straightener I previously paid 250 for a t3 mane tamer this ghd does just as well and for less than half the price
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
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.
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
so much better than my old flat iron. I definitely waited too long to purchase this
I was really nervous in buying a new ghd previous one broke on me after using it for a good 3 years and treating it not very caringly but ive been using this one daily and it is of exactly the same wonderful quality that my previous ghd straightener was. It comes in the box with the authenticity card with a code so if you want you can go to the ghd website and punch in the code to see if it is real or fake. I have naturally wavy thin hair and it gets dry tangled and damaged easily.. Recently got fringe bangs and normal drugstore straighteners will just make my bangs stiff and more dry but the ghd has its way of making my hair look and feel even more hydrated than it is and very naturally silky. Thank you
love it highly recommended and will buy again if need be. I've tried other flat irons and this one seems to work best for my wavy frizzy hair.
Nbsp i’ve had these for 4 months and they have broken a red light is flashing on the button and it’s making weird noises. I also think it had overheated and burnt my hair before it happened as my hair smelt of burning. Before they broke these were the best straighteners i’ve ever had so if you can get your hands on a non faulty one they’re good.
Most straighteners will have either ceramic or tourmaline plates, although a few use titanium. Ceramic is the best choice for delicate, fine or color-treated hair because it heats evenly and a bit more slowly than tourmaline or titanium with no hot spots. Tourmaline and titanium, by contrast, heat up extremely quickly and can easily damage thin or sensitive hair before you’re even aware that it’s happened. For thick hair, though, tourmaline or titanium are the way to go; tourmaline has the added benefit of producing 20x more negative ions, making hair moist and silky and reducing frizz.
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. Women began marcelling their hair, creating deep waves in it using heated scissor irons. Durable permanent waving became popular also in this period: 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.
I was in the market for a new straightener and when I was watching videos and reading reviews of this straightener it seemed like one I would want but I couldn't find it for a really reasonable price. Then I looked at amazon and found it for about 110 that was a great deal. So I bought it and it came really fast. It also came in a really cool box. I haven't been using it very long so far but this straightener has proved to be so much better than my old con air infiniti. Best straightener ever
this is the best straightner period
best styling product I have ever purchased.
despite some of the reviews I bought the product and fell in love I love how shiny and soft my hair feels once I've straightened. This along with a straightening comb leaves my hair pin straight and flawless. I love it
love it highly recommended and will buy again if need be. I've tried other flat irons and this one seems to work best for my wavy frizzy hair.
“Barrel” or rotating hair brush straighteners also detangle, straighten and add shine. In addition, hot air is directed into the hair as their ceramic or metallic barrels rotate, adding volume to thin hair. These are the best option for long hair, and the fact that the barrels are circular provides the added benefit of being able to curl as well as straighten.

Finaly found a hair tool that works for my curly hair. This hot tool makes my hair salon perfect.
“The temperature of the iron can determine the curl pattern on hair that tends to fall easily, as you might need a higher heat to lock in the pattern closer to the root,” she added. “The internal components of the irons also can determine the curl pattern, and that is why it is important to invest in custom, high-end tools that contain internal heaters that go the entire length of the barrel. The higher the heat, the stronger the curl will essentially be. Low heat will produce a softer finish.”
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.
great set of 'original' ghd's... Had similar back in the 90's and I loved them then. I had them for years before they gave up then I tried various other cheaper makes of straightners as well as some of the limited edition ghd's ...none as good as my original ghd's. Noticed these at a good price and bought them in time for the christmas festivities I have no regrets love them
The brush uses MCH technology, it takes approximately 30 seconds for the brush to reach temperature, and there are four temperature options that range up to 425°. There’s an automatic shut-off safety feature as you’ll find on most straighteners. As an added benefit, the InStyler can also be used to curl hair or flip ends, just by wrapping the hair around the barrel and letting it rotate for approximately five seconds.
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.
Great flat iron does the job well.
I really love my ghd flat iron I am a hairstylist and this iron cuts down on my styling time as well the amount of heat that I have to apply to the hair one pass usually does it. My clients are also very happy with how soft and full of body the flat iron leaves their hair. I wish I had purchased this flat iron much sooner
4 Out of 5 for ghd am I mad well not quite. These are excellent and certainly professional level instruments. Balanced good weight easy to use except and thoroughly well designed.hairdryer is quiet ish with more than enough power and settings to deal with most types of hair and styles. All in all an absolute delight.straighteners are almost perfect this is where the the small problem lies. First of all the good bits. Solid construction good smooth plates well balanced. Now the issue the settings. I know these are probably are professional and my gripe may be invalid but the heat setting is not high enough. Could be a decision made people who use them all day but for a once a day use I'd have preferred to be able to turn the heat up.
I started this site after I made the decision to get a new hair straightener. I am not a novice with irons by any means, and I’ve had just about every kind imaginable except for some of the newest options. When I realized how far the industry had come in the last couple of years, I decided it was time to try something new. A good flat iron can last for years, as long as you look after it and make sure you buy one that’s robust enough to take what you put it through. By doing your homework up front, you can make sure you not only get the right straightener for your locks, but you don’t end up spending an inordinate amount of money on something that doesn’t work for you. Believe me, I’ve been there!
Just received my ghd classic I inch iron looooooooove it. Love it heat up fast and the lcd light is very good feature. And it gave my hair very nice look after using it. Now just have to see how long this machine would last loving it so far
The VAV hair straightener heats up in about 30 seconds, and you can select the required level of heat from 284°F to 446°F. The buttons are placed in between the plates, so it may be a little inconvenient to adjust the temperature. The current heat level is shown on the LED display. This flat iron can be used for both straightening and curling due to its thin plates.
bought these after hearing so much about ghd and I am glad I did best straighteners I have ever used I bought them of amazon as I was unsure from reading other reviews that they couldn't register there product I had no problem registering with ghd.
If you are unsure what exactly your hair type is (or if it has changed over the years, which happens more often than you’d think!), check out this incredible overview by the hair professionals at Redken! Don’t stress if you have combination hair (i.e., fine and curly or thin and straight) either; we recommend choosing a hair straightener based on your biggest hair complaint and focusing on that problem first. So, if your curls are driving your nuts, you will want to select a hair straightener with higher temperatures, thin hair needs moisture, etc. You’ll find that your entire hair type can usually benefit from the extra TLC!
Genuine article. 6 Months on no problems second set of ghd's. They are the best.
