I had one of these previously for 3 years and it died so I purchased a new one. Love this brand works great
If you’ve ever used a CHI hair straightener before, then you’re probably pretty well acquainted with the turn dial temperature control of models’ past. While this dial design made it easy to switch on your hair straightener each morning (even before you have had your morning coffee!), it also made it all too easy to accidentally change the temperature during use.
I really liked this device it has light weight and easy to use. Also it is become hot in few seconds.
this is the real deal. I was able to register it on the ghd website with no problems.
the ghds are what I expected but I have only had them a short time and some of the other reviews stated that they stopped working not long after they were purchased so hopefully this will not happen to me.
was really pleased with my ghd after many years of keep buying cheap straightners I think I must have bought at least 4.i finally decided to treat myself to some good ghd
replacement for my girlfriend's straighteners her old model broke due to her accidentally dropping them down the stairs.previously straighteners were the best she has ever used guess what they were yup ghd iv stylershe won't use any others. Can't really comment anything else as I don't have enough hair to use them myself but she won't use any others
all time favorite hair straightener
pricey yes but what can I say daughter swears by ghd's no substitute no point buying cheaper brands. If she's happy then so am i. Her second paid of ghd's in 10 years so good value.
Before curling, make sure your locks are completely dry and well combed. Put a heat protectant. Divide your hair into strands. Take one strand and run a flat iron through, twisting as you go. To get the better result, pin your curls and seal them with hairspray. Repeat until all strands are done. When your curls have cooled, release and gently brush them.
If you are unsure what exactly your hair type is (or if it has changed over the years, which happens more often than you’d think!), check out this incredible overview by the hair professionals at Redken! Don’t stress if you have combination hair (i.e., fine and curly or thin and straight) either; we recommend choosing a hair straightener based on your biggest hair complaint and focusing on that problem first. So, if your curls are driving your nuts, you will want to select a hair straightener with higher temperatures, thin hair needs moisture, etc. You’ll find that your entire hair type can usually benefit from the extra TLC!
Don't ever consider buying any other brand of hair straighteners. I have very curly hair and these are the only straighteners that actually so the job and I have tried many over the last 15 years.
Bought as christmas gift so not opened as such but bought my wife the last ghd straighteners 10 years ago and they are still going strong paid 40 more for latested ones purchased but 10 year no problems is remarkable and shows quality in product
Lovely item the usual excellent quality from ghd
The straighening ceramic plates of the ghd Gold Pure Gold Styler boast a new dual-zone technology and heat up in just 25 seconds. The dual-zone technology features two heat sensors that regulate the optimal temperature of 185°C from root to tip as you straighten, ensuring your locks are straight and ultra-sleek. The shimmering gold design adds a touch of luxury to the styler as the round barrel shape makes the Gold Pure Gold Styler perfect for easy, versatile, snag-free styling.
While there are a lot of great options to choose from, our all-around top pick is the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener. Featuring unique, keratin-infused plates for optimal shine and less damage, the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener proves that technology really can make a difference when it comes to hair care! We also love this model’s innovative smart heat sensors that protect hair from heat damage and lock in moisture.
I have 3a 3b curls so I need a high quality flat iron that won't burn my hair. I used to have a hai then a babylis. Both were very nice. Then I borrowed my friend's ghd on vacation and got spoiled. It got my hair flat and shiny. I was very impressed. When my daughter knocked our babylis over and it stopped working I knew I wanted a ghd to replace it. I watched the price here and when it dipped down low enough I bought it. I am very happy. It doesn't get as hot as my babylis but it still works amazingly. I was able to register the ghd on the website hologram and date code are on the arm not the tag . Highly recommend this product and seller
As one of the hottest hair straighteners we have reviewed (temperature-wise…although it is pretty to look at, we have to admit…), the Solano Sleek Heat 450 Professional Flat Iron can reach temperatures of up to 450° F in as little as 60 seconds! This Solano hair straightener also features thin 1 inch plates, making it an ideal choice for anyone with short or medium length hair and the quick heat time ensures that even the most stubborn of curls can be tackled with a little extra heat. If you are looking or something a little larger though, it is also available with 1.54-inch plates too.
Your second option is a hot air brush. It’s a round-shaped electric tool that can be used for both straightening and curling. But you probably will be able to create gentle waves rather than tight curls with this appliance. Hot air brushes can comb, blow-dry, and style your hair at the same time. It’s a good choice if you want to add extra volume or just keep it.
received within time promised. Love this iron works great heats up with in a minute. This iron was recommended to me by my hair style list its a great product
These flatirons are a great investment. I loved the results. For styling black hair. I would advise to curl you hair first and then apply oil. The irons gives a better curl on less greasy hair. It made my hair silky.
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
I got a real product works very fast do not damage hair and I just love it very good price
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.
I ordered these straighteners as I'd had a pair before that lasted me 7 years it takes only 10 minutes to straighten my long hair and I would highly recommend these to anyone. These straighteners were also fantastic value for ghds which are usually over 100. They were extremely well packaged and arrived in perfect condition I am over the moon
The Herstyler flat iron comes with a protective glove which will probably come in handy as this professional straightener can heat from 180°F up to 500°F. It makes it really good at straightening thick and frizzy hair, yet the controls don’t have exact numbers in between the minimum and the maximum, so you’re supposed to guess the current temperature.
Weighing just over 1 pound, the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron is the lightest hair straightener on our list of the best flat irons! This lightweight design makes it a great choice for users that are constantly on the go, and even when traveling. In fact, this model might make a wonderful “second straightener” for someone that wants to keep their locks looking fine on the road without toting around their heavier at-home hair straightener!
I'm not usually extremely enthusiastic about appliances... Or whatever you would call this. But I love this straightener. My grandma originally bought it for me. I took it to australia and it fried and burnt out I should've known better . So I bought another one. Great for straightening my hair doesn't feel too dry and also great for curling if you just twist it around as you go down your hair.
This is so much better than the drugstore purchased flat iron that I've been using. The ghd classic 1 inch styler heats up fast and maintains the perfect temperature while styling my hair. The extra long cord 9 feet is something that I'm going to have to get used to but I do see how it would be perfect for professional stylists to use in salons. The ceramic plates come together perfectly and there's even a little extra give when I squeeze them over my hair. I appreciate that this has a reset button on the plug to keep the user from getting shocked while using. I even loved how this arrived in a beautiful box. My hair looks great and I am looking forward to using this for years to come.
Great price for a fabulous new flatiron I love the ghd brand I had a previous one it got fried when I went to paris due to voltage so the converter on this one is great
I was scared when ordering this product because I read a few reviews about people receiving knock offs of the ghd. I took the chance however and ordered I am so happy to say that I am the chosen one . I was able to register my ghd on the website and it comes with a 2 year warranty. The straightener itself works wonders it heats up so fast and leaves hair so soft. The only bad thing about this is that I am wanting to straighten my hair everyday haha. But honestly it was well worth the money spent
this has become my favorite flat iron yet. Heats up very quickly gets the job done and is very lightweight. Worth the price
Late 17th-century wigs were very long and wavy (see George I below), but became shorter in the mid-18th century, by which time they were normally white (George II). A very common style had a single stiff curl running round the head at the end of the hair. By the late 18th century the natural hair was often powdered to achieve the impression of a short wig, tied into a small tail or "queue" behind (George III).
Love my ghd had it for 3 yrs and still perfect
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.
Historically, working-class people's haircuts have tended to be practical and simple. Working-class men have often shaved their heads or worn their hair close-cropped, and working-class women have typically pulled their hair up and off their faces in simple styles. However, today, working-class people often have more elaborate and fashion-conscious hairstyles than other social classes. Many working-class Mexican men in American cities wear their hair in styles like the Mongolian (shaved except for a tuft of hair at the nape of the neck) or the rat tail (crewcut on top, tuft at the nape), and African-Americans often wear their hair in complex patterns of box braids and cornrows, fastened with barrettes and beads, and sometimes including shaved sections or bright colour. Sociologists say these styles are an attempt to express individuality and presence in the face of social denigration and invisibility.
The high-density bristles on the professional-style nano comb are designed to prevent curly hair from catching in the teeth. However, that also means straightening your hair can take longer than it does with the Glamsfields or AsaVea, because you may need to make more passes with the brush. Heat-up is fast (60 seconds) and the heat is evenly-distributed thanks to metal ceramic technology. The double-ionic generator works to prevent frizz and split ends.
This set contains a ghd gold styler a heatproof plate guard a heat resistant mat a zip bag that contains a paddle brush and two large hair clips the zip bag press studs onto the mat and the whole lot rolls together for storage . This comes in a gorgeous gift presentation box that has a hidden magnetic fastening you may want to keep this to store it in as everything fits so nicely. Anyone who received this as a present should really appreciate it.the included instructions are brief and whilst they tell you how to turn the styler on and off and cover health and safety information they do not tell you how to get the best out of the styler or how to actually use it on your hair. The assumption seems to be you already know how to straighten your hair because you already have a ghd styler or you've used another brand before. I think this is a shame and seems a bit of an oversight as this gift set could be someone's first styler. I've had cheaper straighteners in the past which had quite a detailed page on how to get the best out of the straighteners . Yes you can find this information on the internet and on youtube but sometimes it's just nice to have it there to read when you open the box.having said that they do reach temperature quickly and straighten well you can tell why it's the brand leader. My previous straighteners you could alter the temperature but I'm quite happy with how these work at a set temperature and it's one less thing to faff around with. It has a 30 minute safety cut off for me this time could be shorter but at least it does have a cut off. I love that it comes with both a heat proof mat so many products just don't seem to and the heat proof plate guard as well.overall a gorgeous hair straightening gift set that anyone not already owning a ghd styler would love to have provided they do want to straighten their hair.
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.
If you are looking for volume for your fine hair then I would recommend the Vidal Sassoon VSHA6471UK which is a superb hot air styler. Designed especially to give lift and volume from the root it will give you enviable curls and waves. It is supplied with two brush sizes 19mm and 25mm so it’s ideal for shorter styles too (use the smaller brush) and gives a pleasing smooth finish that is tangle free. You cannot fault the price either, on Amazon.co.uk this retails below the price of a salon blow-out.
Can't fault ghd's
Makes my hair much shinier than my lower end flat iron about 30 range . I have wavy hair which straightens easily but will often gain wave as the day goes on. This makes my hair stay straight through the night and into the next day. Heats up fast and has the great option to use for curls waves. Mine was verified by ghd as authentic when I registered it.
If you need a heavy duty flat iron for your hard-to-style, the BabylissPRO Nano Titanium-plated hair straightener should be just the thing. The width of the plates is 1 ¾ inches wide, perfect for those with longer, thicker tresses; you cover more surface area in one pass. It has LED temperature settings that reach up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The Ryton housing ensures that you never feel the heat in your hand even when the temperature’s at maximum.
this is an amazing product. I have had it for years and it hasn't broken or not heated to the max heat level once. If it ever dies I'll definitely buy another.
amazing best hair straighteners I have ever used by far would definitely recommend to a friend
Nbsp i’ve had these for 4 months and they have broken a red light is flashing on the button and it’s making weird noises. I also think it had overheated and burnt my hair before it happened as my hair smelt of burning. Before they broke these were the best straighteners i’ve ever had so if you can get your hands on a non faulty one they’re good.
I haven't tried to register this product but it works perfectly. It gets super hot really fast and straightens my crazy curly har. I love this iron.
Tourmaline is an organic, prismatic crystal found in granitic rocks that is crushed into a fine powder and layered onto the surface of the plate. Tourmaline is great because heat is more consistent and evenly distributed through the plate. Also, it produces more negative ions than ceramic with less heat. This means that you not only get more control, but you also get better results and expose your hair to less damage. It’s the newest entry in the heat styling industry so hair straighteners with tourmaline tend to be pricier. Some hair straighteners like the HSI Professional Glider infuse both ceramic and tourmaline to boost the number of negative ions produced.
My first ghds and I would highly recommend them they heat up in seconds and my hair stays straight for days.
Great price for ghd's
