This set oozes quality. First of all it comes in a very classy custom box sealed with a removable band and housing the hairdryer and styler beautifully. The dryer and styler are the first thing you see when you open the black and gold magnetically clasped box and the protective mat instructions and styler cover are underneath the packaging. It all looks top quality and would be a brilliant gift idea.the dryer has a good weight and excellent build quality and isn’t that loud thankfully. Also the heat is only really felt as you draw the dryer nearer the hair so if you back it away it feels significantly cooler. It dries beautifully powerfully and directionally if you use the removable nozzle. There is the obligatory ring to hang it from and it doesn’t seem to get hot. My only slight criticism is the order of the control buttons. The heat settings are the top switch on the handle and the power is underneath which means having to manoeuvre it a bit to turn it off. Personally i’d have switched these around as I don’t often change the heat setting but I do turn it on and off a lot.the styler is the same excellent build quality as the dryer and comes with a neat cover to slip over the ends to keep them together when not in use. They are what you might expect from ghd a quality item that feels great to use and looks fabulous.if you want a quality dryer and styler set to give as a gift or you just really want to really spoil yourself with a bit of styling luxury this is the kit to buy. Love it
so far I love it heats up fast and doesn't pull on your hair.
The mysterious product that smells earthy and looks like wet sand… is good for your hair? The answer is: YES! Think of it this way; the more natural smelling, the more natural the ingredients. Clay products DO contain clay, mostly what’s called bentonite clay, which has highly absorbent properties. Clay is best used for building volume, absorbing oil and grease and drawing out impurities that can cause HAIR LOSS! Barbers choose to style with clay over other products because of its clean feel, density and ability to sculpt super flexible hairstyles. Clay products are NOT sticky, which you will find in some waxes and pomades.
Read all the reviews before ordering. My daughter has long curly hair and of coarse wants straight hair so nowshe can have both with minimal fuss and without destroying her beautiful locks. Using it in australia so dual voltage was important.
My stylist recommended me to buy this. It is a bit pricey but I get the salon quality style at home. I waited for a discount and used my amazon points to help with the cost. It did sit in my quot wish list quot for awhile but it was worth the wait to get it somewhat cheaper.
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
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!
as most ceramic ghd's this works extremely well.
I was able to register my straightener online at ghd...i hope my sister likes this just as much as I do.
I love it
I love this one had one before it broke used another for about a year glad to be back. Doesn't overheat.
One of the biggest problems you will face when using a heated hair styling tool is overheating. We’ve all been there: you’re casually straightening your hair when a particularly funny scene comes up on the show you have playing in the background. After a solid minute or two of laughter, you realize (in utter horror!) that your poor hair has been sandwiched in between a couple of hot plates the entire time.
This product is the real deal very pleased with it. I had it registered on the official site of ghd and its the real deal
I've used these straighter for years and love them. They get so hot and I can do my thick hair in a few minutes. Plus they are salon level so have the extra long cord. However it sounds like you need to buy from the ghd website. I did and it arrived pretty fast about a week I think you know its genuine and the price is the same at 150.
Couldn't survive without my ghds recommended to all who want straight hair
Featuring advanced ceramic heat technology, the ghd Gold Professional Performance 2" Styler is designed to operate at the optimum 365°F styling temperature for healthy-looking hair with enhanced, lustrous shine. Styling thicker, longer hair is quicker and easier thanks to the larger plates that glide through strands without snagging for fast, effortless styling and flawlessly polished strands. It heats up in as little as 30 seconds to tame frizz and transform coarse textures into sleek, smooth styles that last. The styler has contoured, round edges to unleash undulating waves, and with its styling versatility, you can change your look every day.
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
Best straighter I have I ever spend my money in .. I have had mine for over 7 years love it ..my hair is super super curly and thick and it does magic ..
I absolutely love this flat iron I have straight hair always have but this gives me no frizz flat hair. And when I want curls well there you go I have them I researched for a flat iron since I bought one like 5yrs ago and it did nothing for my hair and pulled it too. This one is 100 authentic and I registered it online with ghd also. I'm soo happy my husband got my this well worth the wait also this was bought through amazon if you'd like to know happy styling
I was a little weary about buying this because of all the bad reviews about it being counterfeit. I also know that a lot of people have posted about this already but I received my product and was able to register it on ghd website and that it is real.awesome deal highly recommended
by far the best flat iron out there and I've tried them all. Unbelievably smooth use and finish. Floating plates are wonderful. No snagging at all and it leaves my hair silky and shiny with one pass. I have long thick wavy curly hair that I like to wear straight. I bought my first ghd 10 years ago. It still works wonderfully but I felt like it was time to buy a new one. I'm going to give the other one away to a teenager who wouldn't otherwise be able to buy one. I went and bought a chi thinking perhaps it may be better based on the popularity of the brand. I returned it. I also tried babyliss and after much research a croc and returned those as well. Neither gave me the silk and shine that the ghd does and the chi snagged my hair. Go with ghd. You won't regret it.
In ancient civilizations, women's hair was often elaborately and carefully dressed in special ways. Women coloured their hair, curled it, and pinned it up (ponytail) in a variety of ways. They set their hair in waves and curls using wet clay, which they dried in the sun and then combed out, or else by using a jelly made of quince seeds soaked in water, or curling tongs and curling irons of various kinds.
Styling products aside from shampoo and conditioner are many and varied. Leave-in conditioner, conditioning treatments, mousse, gels, lotions, waxes, creams, clays, serums, oils, and sprays are used to change the texture or shape of the hair, or to hold it in place in a certain style. Applied properly, most styling products will not damage the hair apart from drying it out; most styling products contain alcohols, which can dissolve oils. Many hair products contain chemicals which can cause build-up, resulting in dull hair or a change in perceived texture.
My last ghds lasted me 10 years. The hair straighteners are really good when working however the ones i’ve been sent are faulty you can hear the electricity within the straighteners crackleing sounds like a loose connection so i’m scared to use them. Would be excellent if this wasn’t the case.
Before placing your entire head under unnecessary heat conditions, try straightening a small section of your hair with what you believe is your ideal heat setting. Take notice of the way your hair reacts to this temperature, paying close attention to any fraying or singeing that may result. Smoking and that dreaded burnt hair smell are a sign that you may need to tone it down a bit to avoid permanent damage to your precious locks.
I got a genuine ghd flat iron and was sure to register it right away. Some others say they didn't get a genuine one but mine was. It works very well and makes my styling time much faster. I like knowing I'm not frying my hair with an over the counter flat iron.
For my list of the best flat irons, I’ve chosen the models with the surface made of ceramic, tourmaline or both these materials. They are considered to be the healthiest solution for styling. What’s more, ceramic hair straighteners heat up quickly and evenly, meaning that they can straighten your locks on lower temperatures. This definitely reduces the damage.
best flat iron I've ever owned. My hairdresser recommended ghd and I couldn't be happier. I have owned chi in the past but bit the bullet on this one when my second chi quit working and I'm happy I did.
I have had this straightener for months now and I love it. I have really thick hair and it gets the job done quickly.pros heats up incredibly fast beeps to tell you when it's ready doesn't fry your haircons no ability to adjust temperature non movable irons as opposed to amika which I had before I would definitely recommend this for anyone who's looking for a simple but high quality straightener.
this flat iron is the best one I've ever had. It heats up very quickly. It actually makes my hair shiny. It is worth every dollar I spent on it
I borrowed this straightener from my friend when we were in vegas and I fell in love with it. I love the fact that it heats up almost instantly and is very lightweight. It made my hair silky and smooth. I had to get the straightener for myself and purchased it at a beauty supply store. This straightenr is well worth the investment. I replaced my old herstyler with my new ghd and I'm never going back
I used to use a flatiron which doesn't curl the hair very well..leaves a crease in the hair. The ghd styler is awesome for both curling and straightening awesome product
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.
perfection is the word to describe the ghd classic styler...it's easy to use and the hair style last longer than by using other regular stylers sold on the market...once you try it you will see the difference right away.
Between 27 BC and 102 AD, in Imperial Rome, women wore their hair in complicated styles: a mass of curls on top, or in rows of waves, drawn back into ringlets or braids. Eventually noblewomen's hairstyles grew so complex that they required daily attention from several slaves and a stylist in order to be maintained. The hair was often lightened using wood ash, unslaked lime and sodium bicarbonate, or darkened with copper filings, oak-apples or leeches marinated in wine and vinegar. It was augmented by wigs, hairpieces and pads, and held in place by nets, pins, combs and pomade. Under the Byzantine Empire, noblewomen covered most of their hair with silk caps and pearl nets.
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.
Best straighteners for my wild hair. Keeps it under control in humid weather conditions. I have used ghd straighteners for at least 10 years and my previous ones died of old age
A replacement as loved the first ghd straightener I bought.
