The Karmin G3 Salon Professional Ceramic Flat Iron is one of our picks because not only does it perform great, it has a 3-year warranty that backs it up; not something you see with every flat iron in the market. This hair straightener features 1-inch pure tourmaline ceramic plates that can heat up in less than 30 seconds. It has a tangle-free swivel cord and is dual voltage. And it makes use of micro-porous technology and infrared heat to lock in the moisture and natural oils of your hair so it looks healthy, silky, shiny, and straight.
love love love I cant say enough good things about this product. I bought this as a replacement for one that was given to me 9 years ago. I plan to have this one for another 9 years such a high quality item
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. 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. 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. During this period in Spain and Latin cultures, women wore lace mantillas, often worn over a high comb, 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.
I absolutely love this my friend had one and I wanted one so bad so I could use it to curl my long a hair without using a straight iron and a curling iron.. This is simple to use and best purchase investment ever lol
So, when it comes to hair care, it is no surprise that the healing benefits of infrared technology would make their way into the industry sooner or later! The far infrared technology in the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron leaves your hair looking and feeling smoother and silkier than ever before, while helping to restore your strands to their naturally strong and beautiful thickness.
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.
Great price for ghd
Curling straight hair is relatively easy; perms and curling irons have been around for several years. Those with wavy hair that doesn’t relax even after blow drying, endure more tortuous methods to change the look of their locks. Hair relaxer (straightener) products and hair dryers released over the years have often been hit or miss with many users.
So in the last two years I had been using chi straightens...both broke within a year. My next instinct was to do some flat iron research and came up with the ghd gold flat iron. The price made me nervous being that I've never tried it yet however I was desperate and knew that it would somewhat meet my needs. It's been a month that I've been using this heaven sent product and I have absolutely no regrets.it warms up in literally 10 seconds and gives you a beeping sound when it's ready. One slide through the hair will give you a straight look. I have semi wavy hair so I just apply my heat protectant and flat iron sections and within 15 minutes I'm done you won't regret this purchase. It's also dual voltage which helps me out big time due to travelling.
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...
Being a bald old feller its reasonably obvious that I ordered these for my wife who over the years has become something of an expert on hair styling equipment and has been the guinea pig for this product so her thoughts on this styler....her immediate reaction was ghd they are the best make ever secondly it is a lovely looking styler and is beautifully boxed with a heat resistant protective plate guard for the blade ends and a heat resistant travel bag.my wife was truly amazed at the short heat up time the advertising says 25 seconds she says that it is almost immediate in use there are no problems though she did say that perhaps the plates could be larger otherwise no issues.so to the real nitty gritty....my question was... Would you buy this styler her reply.. No its far too expensive and even though it heats up really quickly basically its no better than cheaper stylers
I ordered the one directly sold by amazon and it was genuine. It had the hologram sticker on the inside and I was able to register it on the ghd website.as far as the product ghds are the best straighteners out there and are well worth the cost.
Creative director of GLAMSQUAD Giovanni Vaccaro prefers this flat iron by Sedu. "The ceramic plates are really key to maintain the integrity and healthiness of the hair," he says. To get expertly straight hair, Vaccaro recommends using a boar-bristle brush to help mediate frizz, and that "the follow through is key" when moving the iron and comb completely from roots to tips.
I had the hsi professional which I thought was pretty good but this ghd flat iron definitely beats it in all aspect which it better be since the price is 3x as much . First I like it that it beeps to let you know that it's ready to be used after plugged in. Second it's very light so for a person with thick hair like me usually takes forever to smooth out all my hair it's less tiring. Last but not least it straightens just in 1 2 strokes and it lasts it cuts down my hair prep time by half if not more. Save up a little longer and get this instead of hsi which is also less compact
Ghd styler is the best. Had it for years
Great product and fast shipping.
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
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."
bought for my wife to replace the last pair of ghd. She loves them
If you have long hair or thick hair and want plenty of voluminous curls I would suggest checking out the Tresemme 2776U Salon Professional Volume Styler. With a grand total of 402 customer reviews this one scored 4.1 out of 5 stars overall. The Tresemme 2776U works just as well on short and fine hair (just use the heat setting on one). Additionally, it is lightweight so makes a good travel companion. Easy to use and works well getting to the back of the head – as an example, one review states that chin length hair thick and wavy hair can be dry in around 10 minutes with plenty of volume and shine.
Derek Yuen, the man responsible for Cole Sprouse's grown-up new look, recommends the GHD Platinum Professional Performance iron. The flat iron is consistently and evenly heated at 365 degrees, which is safer and less damaging on the strands. “The beveled edges also allow for infinite styling possibilities, not just just for straightening hair,” says Yeun.
nice product nice enough for my daughter to order it and have me ship it to china where she is attending school for 6 months said she couldn't live without it and didn't want another brand that would burn her hair. Fast delivery as far as I know no problems.
Great straighteners first pair for the missus and I think she is hooked. Loves the quick best up and thermal trip feature.
The ability to create bouncy curls or waves with a flat iron (we know, it seems counter-intuitive!) is a biggie in the beauty industry and merits a bit more discussion. If you’re totally lost and there aren’t enough video tutorials on the planet to explain this weird yet awesome process, don’t worry! Just follow along with our step-by-step guide and you will be curling with the best of them in no time!
My first ghd styler. I was super skeptical about the purchase considering the 50 difference on their website. I was able to register it so I'm thrilled to say it's the real deal though I haven't tried it in my hair yet I know what to expect...
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.
this is my second ghd my first lasted 10 years. Does not break hair. My hair is thick but fine and breaks easily. I have no problems with it. Hope this one lasts another 10 years
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.
This lesser-known brand made a great impression when it was available on Amazon (you can now buy it at TerresaBeauty.com), where the majority of reviewers gave it five stars. "It allows my hair to glide so smoothly through the plates, never snagging it," says one shopper. "I can straighten or curl with this straightener and it works great," says another.
I was very nervous after reading all the reviews I got this professional original 1 inch ghd straightener and ordered from amazon it was sold directly from amazon which I heard was the best way to go. I heard do not buy from 3 party seller. Anyway... Received it in the mail bought it for 110 including shipping and tax cyber monday sale so so happy. I registered it right away on ghd official site and got an email telling me it was real and registered. I love it it works amazing and everyone compliments on my hair. I couldn't be happier. Get it get it get it. Get one that is sold directly by amazon would be my best recommendation.
If you have stubborn, never-listens-to-me-no-matter-what-I-do hair, titanium is the material you need to set your eye on. Titanium is a metal that is excellent at conducting heat which means that your plates heat up quickly. This metal also keeps heat consistent so there are minimal changes in temperature that could damage your hair in the long run. What makes this great for thick, curly, unruly hair is that it can reach and maintain a high heat for quite a bit of time AND emit 60% more negative ions than ceramic. These two characteristics mean that you get to de-frizz your hair in a shorter amount of time with fewer number of passes.
I replaced my ghd flat iron that was 4 years old. Normal wear and tear prompted to replace my ghd. I love that fact that it has a universal voltage converter I travel to europe a lot . And the flat iron beats chi hot tools and those other crap flat irons that only for last 6 months. First off I have no idea what other people are talking about on the reviews. It is not fake it is very real. I registered the flat iron right away and it worked. I would recommend to purchase it directly from amazon.com sold and ships by . Other sellers....well I probably won't trust them. Cheers.
good price for ghd's so very pleased
usual excellent quality. Never disapointed with ghd's
love this straightener. It heats up really quickly and will automatically shut off after a while an hour I think if it hasn't been used. It only has one heat setting. Also it's universal voltage so I was able to travel overseas with it very easily.
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.
This original hair hero uses ceramic heat technology to style at the optimum styling temperature, for perfect results every time. Simple, effective, iconic. A rounded barrel and floating plates makes this original ghd styler glide easily through hair, creating beautiful styles that will be the envy of your friends. Plus, with automatic sleep mode and universal voltage you'll have peace of mind to create great results at home or abroad.US two pin plug
Hello, ladies! This is Monica, the founder of the MyStraightener blog. In this post, I’m going to tell you about the best flat irons on the market so far and some other hair straighteners. I will also give you some tips and tricks on how to choose the best straightening iron for your hair type. At the end of the post, I’m going to answer the most common questions about using flat irons. Gosh, we have so much to discuss! I hope you have some leisure time =)
A fabulous duo of top notch ghd products. Firstly the styler it's easy to use as it automatically heats to a predetermined non adjustable 185 c optimal for styling without damaging hair. Should one need a higher temperature then this is not for you. It's supplied with a chunky 20 cm square heat mat to protect surfaces and it auto powers off after 30 minutes if not in use. Given its speedy heat up rate I reckon this could be reduced to 10 minutes in use great results are possible with very little practise.and the hairdryer very nicely balanced with good access to the controls without stopping. The lower switch is the 3 position fan speed off medium high but it doesn't sit quite right ... To get to the highest speed one has to push the end of the switch down into the handle its as though the switch has not been installed level vertical but it's not a huge problem the 3 position heat switch is much better. The cold shot button requires a fair bit of effort to hold in with 1 finger for anything more than a few seconds.both have very good quality cable that are properly flexible unlike some 2.7 m styler 3.0 m on the dryer. With regard to cables the manufacturer's make it clear that the cables should not be wound around the device but folded as they were as they came out of the box ... That's ok in theory but using the twist ties is not practicable so it would have been useful to include some cheap and easy method of coiling the cable especially for travelall said and done superb kit with a niggle about a switch and cable storage
Coming in at a close second, the CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron is our second editor’s choice as the best hair straightener on the market today – featuring fool-proof and color-coded temperatures for easy straightening or who just wants to protect their luscious locks. We also love the digital display that is featured on the CHI G2 model along with its combination ceramic and titanium design for optimal shine!
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.
There are many women for whom a flat iron simply isn’t the right choice; their sensitive or thin hair is quickly turned to toast by the high temperatures produced by flat irons. That’s why electric hair brush straighteners became an overnight sensation a few years ago when videos of these often odd-looking contraptions started popping up on YouTube and Facebook. Manufacturers quickly responded, and today there is a wide variety of brush straighteners to choose from.
I have tried other hair straightener and I have always come back to ghd. My last pair was bought in 2006 and it is still going strong only bought these pair because of special discount. Not disappointed but because I have thick and long asian hair I find the wide plate works better for me.
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
My favorite straightener ever so happy I bought it little expensive but does my hair in half the timemy old one did. And my old one was also an expensive one but another brand.
After all, there are so many different hair types, short, medium and long lengths not to mention a variety of textures. Rather than ploughing through the thousands of stylers on the market I have written a short guide as to those I think will work for you. The information is extracted reviews by people just like you, with different hair types and expectations….so read on for what my recommendations are:<
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:
The L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod is unique in that unlike traditional hair straighteners, it relies on steam technology to straighten hair; reducing frizz and smoothing down the fibres. This technology provides gentle heat action which helps to minimise damage to the hair. Proven to be faster than other straighteners and giving up to 50% smoother hair, the Steampod is perfect for enhancing your blow-dry and giving you salon-perfect results each and every time.
Easy to use styler no waiting for long periods of time for it to heat. It heats within seconds.
always pleased with ghd products no change here
I've had this flat iron for 3.5 years now I ordered from this exact listing as well . I'm not sure if it's fake or real but either way it is the best flat iron I have ever used. I have fine thin hard to straighten and curl hair and it works perfect on me plus on my mom with thick curly hair. It is still working great so it lasts a long time. If it ever does go out on me I will be repurchasing the same one
If being limited to only a handful of temperature settings isn’t really your cup of tea, look no further than the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron! This lightweight flat iron features a whopping 50 heat settings for hair types of all shapes, styles, textures, and colors making it one of the most versatile hair straighteners on our list.
bought for my wife.she says ghd are the best
