I worked in the hair industry for a while so I've used a lot of high end flat irons and I got to say, this one did not impress me at all. I'd never used a GHD before this btw (none of the stylists I know have one) but I ended up ordering the GHD classic styler--which btw seems to be the same as the "IV styler"--instead of the CHI Turbo due to the fact that at the time, the GHD was on sale and basically the same price yet it offered more versatility (the turbo has a velvet cover so you can't use it to curl).
ghd will always be one of our top picks when it comes to straighteners and stylers. This brand have been around for almost two decades, and have easily established themselves as a go-to for celebrities and professionals. As if you weren’t already spoiled for choice, we’re excited to announce the release of the new ghd Gold, a professional-quality straightener with all of the bells and whistles you want from your day-to-day heated tool.

Over a decade on from revolutionising hairstyling with the launch of its first styler, ghd remains true to its founding ethos: the spirit of transformation. Ghd have since broadened their super range from stylers to professional quality brushes and the most impressive hairdryers available on the market today. Even after all these years the Ghd hair straightener is still very much a must have for most women and men who want smooth, sleek luscious hair - especially with us girls from Millies. 
Like all ghds, the IV heats to 185 degrees, which is perfect for creating a poker straight finish, glamorous curls or beachy waves. The floating aluminium plates make the styler easier to hold and control, while also ensuring those tell-tale dents in the hair are a thing of the past. Other features of the IV Styler include a 2.7 metre cable, an automatic shut down after 30 minutes, and universal voltage.
For curling, place a section of hair between the plates closest to the scalp, clamp the plates, and turn styler through 180 degrees while holding the end of the strand. Pull styler through the hair slowly, always maintaining the 180 degree turn--it helps to slightly tip the nose of the styler downward, careful not to let the hair fall out. It also helps to pull the strand forward when trying to curl hair at the back of the head.
Beautiful to look at, the ghd Gold V Classic is also lovely to hold. It’s designed to be extremely lightweight, so it won’t tire your arm out holding it. And with its standout gold ceramic plates, it brings a touch of luxury to your hair-styling regime too. The designers at ghd have done everything to ensure that the Gold V Classic delivers top-class styling with minimum fuss.

I got a new GHD styler/straightener for my birthday this year. My old original ghd maxx sadly gave up and died after 10 years of faithful service! I opted for the standard design this time as it was in a special mother’s day gift pack for a reduced price and I am really happy with it. Although it takes a little longer to styler my long thick hair (compared to the thicker tonged styler) it has the same long lasting, shiny effect!
The perfect tool for all your hiar styling needs. universal voltage for worldwide travel use. . The nose of the plates touch first, so it leaves a very small gap as you look down the plates, but if clamped down on tightly, they do eventually touch. ghd stylers have floating plates that help the hair glide through the hair effortlessly. The gap should almost disappear once the hair glides through the plates
I'm absolutely in love with my GHD.I will never buy another brand again. It heats up super quick, glides through the hair like silk and takes alot less time as with previous straightners i've had to go over the same strand a few times and it left my hair frizzy/flyaway and meant i had to use products to smooth it down! I dont really need to use any products except hot iron spray or cream protectant and a tiny amount of serum afterwards. The GHD also curls my hair perfectly, now that ive mastered the technique ;-)
Bought these on recommendation of my hairdresser to deal with my chemo damaged hair. Thankfully I didn't lose my hair but it did go really thin during treatment. 18 months on from treatment my once fine, straight and easily managed hair has come back in thick with random curly and wavy bits. My old straighteners which had served me well over the years were snagging, pulling and breaking both the damaged and newly growing hair but these ones glide through the hair with hardly any breakage.

GHD Classic Styler, from the name itself, you can deduce that this simple yet versatile device was made to style and straighten. Armed with a rounded barrel and advanced ceramic heaters, you can curl, flip, tease, wave, and straighten any hair type and texture easily without damaging your hair’s external surface. The infra-red heat technology infused within the plates also releases more negative ions than other products so your hair’s natural oils and luster are retained despite repeated exposure to maximum heat.
