The male wig was pioneered by King Louis XIII of France (1601–1643) in 1624. Perukes or periwigs for men were introduced into the English-speaking world with other French styles in 1660. Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy, but became shorter in the mid-18th century, by which time they were normally white. Short hair for fashionable men was a product of the Neoclassical movement. In the early 19th century the male beard, and also moustaches and sideburns, made a strong reappearance. From the 16th to the 19th century, European women's hair became more visible while their hair coverings grew smaller. In the middle of the 18th century the pouf style developed. During the First World War, women around the world started to shift to shorter hairstyles that were easier to manage. In the early 1950s women's hair was generally curled and worn in a variety of styles and lengths. In the 1960s, many women began to wear their hair in short modern cuts such as the pixie cut, while in the 1970s, hair tended to be longer and looser. In both the 1960s and 1970s many men and women wore their hair very long and straight. In the 1980s, women pulled back their hair with scrunchies. During the 1980s, punk hairstyles were adopted by many people.
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
First, there are the temperature settings. Obviously, different hair requires a different heat level. The thicker your hair is, the higher level of heat you should apply to straighten it. I highly recommend you to read the instructions which usually say what temperature you should select for your particular hair type. This may vary a little bit from one flat iron to another. The general rule here is the less heat you apply, the better your hair condition will be. And always use a heat protectant, regardless of your hair type.
Very good styler and much cheaper than in the store.always difficult to find good quality not damaging styler with dual voltage.very pleased
When taming coarse, wavy or curly hair, sometimes you need a little to kick it up a notch. That’s why we love that the CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron can reach a maximum temperature of 425° F and heats up in under a minute! With this hair straightener, say goodbye to wasted time waiting for your tool to heat up, and get styled and out in the door!
I confess I am a ghd devotee having bought my first straighteners in 2006. Theyve come a l ong way since this beautiful set of professional irons and a really good hairdryer will make a fantastic gift for anyone who does their hair.packaged in a solid dull gold box which oozes quality and has a really posh air the matching items look so stylish and dont disappont in use. Teh styler has a new hinge shape and different tips this makes for smooth use and less catching in the hair. I was impressed that heat up time is a few seconds and the auto cutoff works too. A far cry from the old days of waiting ages for heat up and then panicking on the train to work thinking I'd left them on the hairdryer really is another level though. It's balanced beautifully and feels light but firm in the hand. It manages to dry my hair without frizzing it all over the place and quickly too. Using these tools makes hair styling actually a pleasure and I love the smooth straight results however much people tell me straight hair is on the way out.
love these first ghd’s I have bought normally but normal straighteners but thought i’d treat myself. These do the job well worth the money.
I bought this almost two years ago and still works well on my hair. Since I use it everyday it will probably have to be replaced soon. I will buy the same one again
Any hair texture can benefit from this iron — wavy, curly, coiled, you name it. The black titanium plates fight frizzies and strengthen hair at the same time (even though you're still clamping it between fiery hot metal plates) thanks to their infrared heat technology. Feel free to take yours anywhere in the world, as it’s made with a dual voltage that’s perfect for travel.
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.
I tried to break everything up on the chart by category so it’s easier to narrow things down, but you have to keep in mind there is a ton of overlap in styling tools. You can have large ceramic tourmaline and small titanium steam as well as just about a thousand other options. The point is, although my table is here for those of you who already have an idea of what you want, there is a small chance you might end up looking at something with a few extra bells and whistles because there is so much overlap. If you’re not sure what different kinds of irons there are, head over to my buying guide so you can get that all sorted out before you start reading the reviews.
This is my second ghd straightener in 5 years. I will not buy another brand. It doesn’t burn your hair but will straighten it in no time at all
“I debated whether to buy this product or the more expensive titanium flat irons and decided to give these a try. I have been natural for about two years … But could never find flat irons that would tame my hair. GIRL, I am telling you these flat irons are like that. One pass through over freshly washed and blow-dried hair and I was in awe. Why go to a salon? I did my own silk press and a week later, I still got shine and body. Best iron I’ve had in years, and I love the color.”
the shipping is stupid. It took forever but my ghd is great and just as described. Registration was easy.
Best hair straightener I have ever used
This is a great hair straightener. It lets you straighten your hair straighten but curl flip the ends or even curl your hair. I definitely recommend getting a heat pouch so you can put it away in for example a suitcase right after using it but this is an excellent product. I've had it for a while now and friends have had theirs for longer so it lasts too.works in different countries with other voltage e.g. I took it to australia and the beep to let you know that it's hot is awesome.
I'd had a pair of nicky clarke straighteners that I couldn't seem to get on with and when I was given some amazon vouchers for christmas decided to take the plunge and buy the ghd's that everyone raves about. Well now I totally get why they rave about them. Very easy to use they straighten my thick and wavy hair in seconds. No repeating sections one sweep and the hair is straight and sleek holding the style until the next wash.yes they're pricy but in this instance you get what you pay for.
This Amazon bestseller has just about everything you’ll need in a hair straightener. The 1-inch plates are high quality ceramic and tourmaline plates for silky smooth results. These plates feature 8 HeatBalance microsensors that ensure temperature remains consistent and evenly distributed throughout. Plus, these are floating plates with curved edges so you don’t have to worry about snagging your hair while you style because the plates adjust the angle as you do your ‘do.
Ghd have a big reputation to uphold and they more than maintain it with this wonderful gift set. The presentation box is worth a sentence alone. It's grandiose and gold really looks the part and will absolutely impress anyone who receives this.next onto the core part of the product the hairdryer and tongs. Both are of exceptional quality and you can tell that they are a cut above your usual high street products which might retail at a lower price. There are a good variety of settings on each of the products and these ensure that the products adapt to whatever your hair requires there is no doubt this pricey but in this case price really does equal quality and for that reason I can recommend.
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 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.
This is the best straightener I've ever used plus I can curl with it I registered it online and activated the guarantee. Great product
After living in australia and going to a salon there that used a ghd flat iron on my hair I've always wanted one. But because of the price I often settled for the less expensive brands. I had a sedu but it recently died and I found that the ghd sold on amazon had such a great price I just had to get it. It was definitely worth it I love how I only need to flat iron a section once and it's perfect. Because I have curly hair it usually takes me 40 mins to flat iron my hair but now with the ghd styler it only takes about 25 mins. From now on I'm only using ghd stylers.
I bought these for two reasons my trusty babyliss straighteners died and I was just about to take a trip to america. Rather than buy two pairs for the different voltages I invested in these dual voltage ghds and am extremely pleased. Light and easy to use heat up and cool down very quickly. Only one heat setting but they work absolutely fine on my curly hair and I find I don't need to do it every day unless my hair gets damp but that's the joy of natural curls lol. Worked exactly the same on the american voltage with an adaptor for the plug. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend these if you need to replace your current straighteners. Maybe a little pricey but you get what you pay for with this type of electrical item.
During this period, Western men began to wear their hair in ways popularized by movie stars such as Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Rudolph Valentino. Men wore their hair short, and either parted on the side or in the middle, or combed straight back, and used pomade, creams and tonics to keep their hair in place. At the beginning of the Second World War and for some time afterwards, men's haircuts grew shorter, mimicking the military crewcut.
Definitely the best hair straightener in the world. After trying a few staighteners available in the market I settled for ghd as I had heard rave reviews from my friends and hair stylists. I was a bit sceptical when I was buying the product as it is quite expensive in comparison to other straighteners but my doubts vanished as soon as tried it for the first time. I have frizzy hair which is extremely unmanageable and I have always wanted to have straight and silky hair. I can finally say that my dream has come true hair straighteners tend to make the hair very dry. But ghd does not. Though I need to condition my hair very well after every wash preferably with a hair mask . I leave it on for 3 4 mins wash it off dry my hair using a hair dryer. I then liberally spray a good heat protect spray all over my hair and use the iron.i am thrilled with this product and would recommend it to anyone who has always wished she had soft silky and straight hair buy it girls..you will not regret
“Works great. Various and high-temp settings. Heats up very fast! My daughter and I both use this. I’m also a hairdresser, and this works great on my clients of all hair types. It’s easy to curl with it as well. I love curling with a flat iron. Great size and ceramic is my favorite, as it glides nice and smooth and heats evenly. It has a swivel cord, so it doesn’t tangle. Auto shut-off in case you leave it on. So far, so good.”
“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.”
get used far too much she loves them.... Have had several other brands waste of time. Ghd's are in a different league expensive but recommended. Very good quality items so still good value
