It’s the fact that it’s so popular that so many people are trying to peddle fake copies. It’s hard to believe that people would try to come up with fake ghd straighteners, but they’re now like Zippo, Louis Vuitton, and other iconic brands. There are so many fakes around!

Repeat the process with each section of hair, gliding once from roots to ends.
I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.

ghd stands for good hair day, and that's exactly what you're signing up for with our fabulous collection of ghd products. Launched in 2001, ghd's reputation as one of the best and most reliable names in hair styling is entirely deserved, with their ceramic straighteners providing amazing results for all kinds of hair types. Designed to heat up quickly, take care of your hair and even look great on your dressing table, you can't go wrong with ghd. Between their iconic straighteners, equally brilliant hairdryers and extensive range of brushes and styling products, it's never been easier to look like you've just stepped out of a celebrity salon.

This is an expensive straightener, but it's worth every penny! I've had mine now for over a year, and I know I'll have it for many years to come. The iron itself is black and gold. I have long, thick, straight hair, but it gets a little wavy underneath if I let it air dry. If I blow dry it, it gets a little poofy and I use this to give it a more smooth, sleek look. It takes a couple passes of going over my hair before it's completely straight, but with cheaper ones it takes longer. It doesn't take too long to do all of my hair. It heats up super fast, and if I'm in a hurry and forget to turn it off, it turns off by itself after thirty minutes. I have dropped it a few times, and it's still going strong. I recommend this for everyone.

I purchased this ghd after a hairdresser friend used hers on my hair. I couldn't believe how well it worked so I purchased the same model. I have curly frizzy hair and this straightener actually makes my hair shiny and even holds my hair straight if my hair gets wet in the rain. I use a hair straightening treatment on my hair before I use the ghd as you should with any straightener and this keeps my hair from becoming brittle. I have lovely comments about my hair since using it. It feels very soft and is healthy. I can adjust the heat setting so it does not get too hot. It is very quick to heat up and beeps when it is ready unlike others I have tried .It is so simple and quick to use. Because it is the wider ghd I can do my hair in less than five minutes. I have long hair past my shoulders. Very happy with this one.
I gave it three sticks because my hair did eventually get straight and at no point did I feel like it harmed my hair, but it's not even adjustable because again, the company claims that this iron auto-adjusts according to hair "conductivity" or some bullshit like that (this is a laughable claim). It does have auto-shut off but so do a lot of irons (or at least the high end ones). Honestly, I can only conclude that this is another one of those hyped up beauty products aimed at people who think more $$$= better product and performance but a straightener is a straightener so once you get past the $100 price point it all comes down to personal preference and there's really not much more you're gonna get for your money...

BEWARE of sellers with LOW FEEDBACK! Ask sellers questions about the 22 things I have pointed out above. If they do not answer, don't buy! If they make excuses, don't buy! Also, some buyers who have been ripped off are trying to resell their GHD's to cut their losses. Watch for things like "I got it as a gift" or "I recently cut my hair". One of the seller's I purchased from was supposed to be shipping out of Georgia but he really shipped from China. Don't believe everything you read about a seller's information. They can lie.


I love my ghd hair straightener and use it several times per week. It heats up quite quickly (in the region of 20-30 seconds) and heats to the perfect temperature for my hair. It's nice and light and feels comfortable to use. I find it less damaging to my hair than other cheaper straighteners, but find that it's definitely worth investing in some argan oil or other heat-protective product. Ghd straighteners are on the expensive end, but I think it's worth spending the extra money to buy a product that does a good job.


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.
The secret to ghd's straightening success lies in those ceramic plates, which are rounded to let savvy users create curls and waves as well as the classically sleek poker-straight look. The plates smooth your hair as they straighten, calming frizz and leaving you with gorgeously glossy locks. The safety-conscious sleep mode means that they'll switch themselves off after 30 minutes, and since they're available in a wide range of colours including pink, purple, black and blue, you can even choose a style that matches your bedroom. All of ghd's straighteners and stylers come with cords at least 2.7m long, giving you the flexibility to position them within easy reach of a full-length mirror.
It did get straight and it didn't pull or drag on my hair which was nice, but it took twice as long as it usually does (and lately i've been using a $35 flat iron I got from Amazon!) due to the fact that I had to go over and over it in increasingly smaller sections. I already use thin sections so this was just ridiculous. What annoyed me was that even after all this my hair remained poufy and never really got that shine I usually get. My hair btw, isn't even curly it's more wavy/frizzy/poufy--so I don't require tons of product or anything like that bc straightening my hair has always been an easy no-fuss affair. Usually, it takes like, one pass to get'er done.

In 2001, ghd revolutionised the hair styling industry with the launch of the first ghd hair straightener. An instant hairstyling phenomenon; ceramic heat technology was introduced to create smooth, sleek results that lasted. Since creating the original professional styler, ghd have continued to work with ghd scientists and stylists to develop innovative, breakthrough technology to ensure that all ghd stylers style faster and give amazing results; whatever your hair type.
This is my second hair straightener. My first was a Babyliss and I did not manage to do some nice curls, the Babyliss did not glide through the hair. This GHD feels professional. The heating goes very fast. It is quiet hard to learn how to do the perfect curls with this straightener but I hope to learn the technique some day! I noticed that it is easier to do curls on other peoples hair than your own. I have to practice. And I hope this styler will last forever!
This overpriced iron is good if you have naturally fine, soft or wavy hair. If you have coarse, thick hair it will not do the job, or it will take you several passes. This is not unique to the GHD, this applies to ALL CERAMIC straighteners. The Auto shut off and dual voltage is awesome, but it is not worth it if the iron does not provide sleek, durable straight hair. If you have kinky, unruly, poofy hair go with TItanium, hand down!!
I own the GHD V Sapphire Styler and I am in love with it. It straightens through my medium to fine , puffy curly hair nicely reducing it to a sleek , straight and soft state. The box it comes in is really petty and you usually can purchase the iron as part of a set with another product such as a comb to styling spray, depending on where you get it from. It can be petty expensive but will last you the best part of a decade. The styler is create to curl, wave to straighten your hair and it heats up really fast and glides through your hair magically. However it makes it alittle bit trickier to curl/wave hair because it doesn't have much grip on your hair but usually the straighteners will gain alittle more grip the longer you use them (what I found with my iv styler).

Like the other core straighteners in the ghd range, the new ghd Gold Professional Styler works wonders for every hair type. The smooth plates and Dual-Zone Technology ensure thick or coarse hair receives enough heat to create a sleek look, whereas the sensors help to regulate heat delivery in thin hair types. You can use your new ghd Gold to create everything from pin straight locks to ghd curls, which require a simple twisting motion for that signature luxe, wavy look.

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.


It’s not just poker straight hair that can be achieved with the fantastic range of stylers from ghd, but you can also curl, wave and flick your hair into any desired hairstyle. With a vast range of hair tutorials on the ghd website, as well as online, you will never be short of looks to create. The great thing about ghd straighteners is that you can create almost all styles, with one model of Ghd hair straighteners.

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.

I can't believe Amazon would allow one of their trusted sellers to sell fakes. I received mine today and it took about 5 seconds to realize that it was fake. I could not register it on the ghd website, and I came across the information below to help identify fakes. This straightener did not have a reset button on the plug, and had many more of the 'give-aways' that it was a fake! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.

Improved Ergonomics: If you compare the new ghd Gold to the now-dated V Gold Styler, you’ll notice one of the biggest improvements lies in its look and feel. The modern design means this product will look gorgeous sitting atop your bathroom counter, and the rounded barrel assists with preventing snags and speeding up your styling time. The swivel cord has also been upgraded to enhance your overall experience, letting you worry more about how your hair looks and less about twisting and turning to find the right angle (we’ve all done it).
Inferior hair straighteners take a very long time to heat, and you really need to make sure that they’re on their highest setting to have any effect. But that means getting lots of split ends, and you hair often looks frizzy, dry, and generally unhealthy. And once you go outside, if ever you live in an area that’s a bit humid the straight hair quickly goes to its default pouf settings. 
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 ;-)
Top stylists, models and celebrities alike can’t live without their ghds, so you know you’re in good company when you add to your collection. Whether using your ghd styler to tame frizz for a day at your desk, or to curl locks for a night out on the town, ghd not only allows you to straighten your hair, but also twist, curl, flick, wave and bounce too. With ghd, the possibilities are endless.
