In the 1800s, American women started wearing their hair up when they became ready to get married. Among the Fulani people of west Africa, unmarried women wear their hair ornamented with small amber beads and coins, while married women wear large amber ornaments. Marriage is signified among the Toposa women of South Sudan by wearing the hair in many small pigtails. Unmarried Hopi women have traditionally worn a "butterfly" hairstyle characterized by a twist or whorl of hair at each side of the face.[42]

It contains tri-zone® technology, which works quickly and effectively to straighten, curl and style without compromising the health of your hair. The technology uses three sensors in each plate to ensure the optimum temperature for styling hair is consistently maintained across the entire plate from root to tip, reducing breakage and improving shine.
Available with either ceramic plates (good for all hair types) or titanium ones (choice for curly, thick, and coarse textures), this innovative styler features touch sensor technology that lowers the heat when it's not being used, then automatically brings it back up to temp as soon as it's touched. Translation: No more waiting for your iron to heat up in between passes. Use it for smooth and sleek styles, or take advantage of the round brush-esque attachments to create more of a bouncy blowout effect.
holy crap this hair straighter is awesome heats up hella quick and does an amazing job I have super thick long hair and it works wonders I had no problem registering it with ghd. It is hands down the most impressive straighter I have ever used. I don't think its possible to love a hair product more than I love this thing.
I love this product I have curly wavy medium thick hair and it makes my hair feel silky and smooth. The iron heats up really quickly and easy to use. This product came in brand new as if I had just bought it from the store myself love it.
authentic heats up immediately and straightens in no time. Worth the
great ghd styler . Very happy with them

In the early 1870s, in a shift that historians attribute to the influence of the West,[26] Japanese men began cutting their hair into styles known as jangiri or zangiri (which roughly means "random cropping").[27] During this period, Asian women were still wearing traditional hairstyles held up with combs, pins and sticks crafted from tortoise, metal, wood and other materials,[14] but in the middle 1880s, upper-class Japanese women began pushing back their hair in the Western style (known as sokuhatsu), or adopting Westernized versions of traditional Japanese hairstyles (these were called yakaimaki, or literally, soirée chignon).[27]

works like a dream. Better than any other iron I have used before. Heats up fast and love the auto turn off
Physical factors include natural hair type and growth patterns, face and head shape from various angles, and overall body proportions; medical considerations may also apply. Self-image may be directed toward conforming to mainstream values (military-style crew cuts or current "fad" hairstyles such as the Dido flip), identifying with distinctively groomed subgroups (e.g., punk hair), or obeying religious dictates (e.g., Orthodox Jewish have payot, Rastafari have Dreadlocks, North India jatas, or the Sikh practice of Kesh), though this is highly contextual and a "mainstream" look in one setting may be limited to a "subgroup" in another.
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.
Just like the other reviewer I am not surprised to see a bad review about ghd. A lot of the ghd irons sold on this website and others are fake reproductions sold as the real thing and even if they were real such as the ones sold on ... The warrantee is not valid because they are not authorized distributors. Luckily for us we can now purchase the ghd styler directly from its official website I guess they finally realized there are too many fake ghd out in the market so stop wasting your money on these fake ghd imitations and get the real deal. Ghd is the best flat iron out there. It is used by the 'real' professionals everywhere in the world not these fake a corner store salons. Even when I traveled to europe most high end salons I visited used ghd. Plus ghd has dual voltage in other words you can take it around the world no problema. By the way if your hair is breaking perhaps you should reconsider how often you flat iron your hair and the types of products that you use. I personally only flat iron it once maybe twice a week 1st upon washing my hair and later on in the week as a touch up .these tools are not meant for everyday use just like with anything else in life too much of a good thing can turn out not to be so good in the end...or something like that... The point is you need to take better care of your hair. I personally like to use the biolage brand. You can also get a good deep conditioner such as baba de caracol or alter ego garlic dominican italian deep conditioners respectively and a good blowdryer such as turbo. I also like chi but they break within 6 12 months so don't waste your money there. To style your hair use chi infusion or moroccan oil 9it's a dry oil not actually oily and there you have it instead of styling your hair everyday wrap it at night and it will be as good as new the next day. Now go to ... To get the real deal. Do not settle for anything less... Ghd is the realest well you get the point
The Mighty Mini Downtown Styler features lightweight, durable, and microscopically smooth titanium plates which can be used to create straight, wavy, and curly styles with a silky, snag-free finish. A ceramic heating element emits far-infrared heat which locks in moisture and protects the hair cuticle from damage. Reaching 400°F in under a minute, the ceramic produces negative ions which close the cuticle for smooth, shiny, frizz-free results.
I was a little apprehensive about purchasing these only because previous reviews had said that their ghds appeared to have already been used on arrival. This was not the case at all when mine arrived. They came sealed in their original box plastic on the plug wire around the cable etc. They're perfect brand new fully working and the delivery was ridiculously quick too I would 100 recommend. Very happy with both the product and the service that I received.
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

Hi do you have any views / recommendations on cordless or portable hot air brushes? I just bought a rotating hot air brush and love it as its easy to straighten and defrizz my hair while adding a bit of volume (I use it on slightly damp hair) but it’s just too big to carry. I am looking for an easy to carry hot brush that I can pop in my gym bag to help me finish off styling my hair after I rough dry my hair with the hairdryer at the gym. Thank you.
This one’s the LBD of all hair straighteners. With 100 percent pure tourmaline ceramic plates, the classic tool will never lose its luster (and neither will your hair). No need to tug or pull, as this tool is made with a small suspension system — the floating plates adjust to compress your hair while styling. And with a fully-rotating swivel power cord, you’ll have all the styling control in your hands.
GHD went and nabbed itself a 2018 Best of Beauty award with this miracle of a flatiron. The tool maintains a constant temperature of 365 degrees Fahrenheit, but get this: It reads the thickness or thinness of the sections you use so it can adjust the amount of power it exerts. That way, it keeps the same temperature while straightening your hair and gets all the sections evenly straight without you having to worry too much about heat damage. "My hair felt relatively healthy after ironing which I am not used to," says Tracey Zane, director of content development for Allure. "The tool moves much effortlessly across my hair, and actually makes it feel silky smooth once ironing."
great price on this straightener. I was able to register this on ghd site online with no problem. Heats up lightning fast.
Industry giant Conair's also got an affordable flat iron with tons of positive reviews: the Infiniti Pro Rainbow Titanium Flat Iron. The straightener, typically $44.99 at Ulta but currently down to $39.99, has just under 200 top-rated reviews, lauding the tool for smoothing frizz and adding shine to strands. Plus, reviewers like that the cute, rainbow-colored plates heat up in 30 seconds or less — meaning you can get to styling in a snap.
I bought this knowing that it had great reviews and hoping that I wouldn't receive a fake like some others had reported in their reviews. I was fortunate enough to receive the real ghd classic styler successfully registered it on the ghd website and have loved it every single time I used it.i am half puerto rican with very naturally curly hair and this works wonders. It offers a all day straightening power and works wonderfully when I use it to curl the ends of my hair also.if you can take the risk of possibly getting a fake I highly recommend this product. Well worth every penny.

good price for ghd's so very pleased
“I’ve owned a Conair, Chi, and I-Tech straightener before, but this one is FABULOUS! There really is no tugging at all on your hair — so smooth, and I was shocked that it truly heats up in 15 seconds, as advertised! It also does something magical to my hair: It adds more shine like no flat iron has done before. Mind you, my hair is very difficult to deal with. It has always been coarse, wavy, dry, and thick! This iron worked beautifully on my hair.”
I was weary about buying this flat iron I was afraid it was a fake . My fingers were crossed while entering my codes and it said you are the chosen one . I did not purchase mine straight from amazon just one of the sellers on amazon.

The protective cool tip provides you with a safe place to hold the hair in place while you curl, and the built-in safety stand allows you to place the iron down securely during styling.

I brought these for my sister for her birthday in april. She lives the other side of the country so I had to get them delivered straight to her. The delivery was very fast and they left out the receipt as requested gift option so my sister wouldn't know how much they cost. She's been wanting a set of ghds for years and has had disappointment with 2 sets of fakes so the first thing she did was register them on the ghd website and all genuine she's since told me that they were definitely worth the wait they're easy to use quick to heat up and turn off after a while if you forget to turn them off which is very good for her since she forgets half the time definitely worth the money.

Less common but still worth mentioning are “hybrid” styles of hair brush straighteners. Some are similar to a flat iron but with bristles on each of the plates, while others have a rotating barrel on one side and a plate with bristles on the other. You’ll also see lots of inexpensive, non-heated straightener brushes, but we won’t be focusing on those in our reviews.
The historical dictum to brush hair with one hundred strokes every day is somewhat archaic, dating from a time when hair was washed less frequently; the brushstrokes would spread the scalp's natural oils down through the hair, creating a protective effect. Now, however, this does not apply when the natural oils have been washed off by frequent shampoos. Also, hairbrushes are now usually made with rigid plastic bristles instead of the natural boar's bristles that were once standard; the plastic bristles increase the likelihood of actually injuring the scalp and hair with excessively vigorous brushing. However, traditional brushes with boar's bristles are still commonly used among African Americans and those with coarse or kinky textures to soften and lay down curls and waves.

I was replacing this with my previous ghd which I got for full price and worked great for years.. Though I was a bit skeptical after reading the reviews but couldn't resist because of the price.. I checked the product the minute I got it and went online and found out I got the original..

The FemJolie flat straightening brush is convenient because of its lightweight, less than one pound. It’s extremely flexible because it allows you to select temperatures as low as 176° (too low for most users, but not bad for a brief touch-up) and as high as 450° (the right setting for those with very thick hair) in increments of 9°. The brush auto-locks at your selected temperature so you can’t burn your hair by mistake and so it automatically heats to the right temperature every time you use it; you can easily override the auto-lock if you choose. 

Sadly, the plates in the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener won’t begin to magically levitate on your bathroom sink! BUT they do float in the frame! They are specially engineered to deliver a consistent heat with a smooth glide, and their design enables a flexible grip on the straightener, giving you great results no matter how you hold it. Even better, it won’t tug or pull like so many others on the market. The result is pain-free styling in a fraction of the time!
I was worried that this might be fake..but it's real I entered the code and said you're the chosen one . According to the other viewers don't buy ghd from anyone other than amazon llc . That's exactly what I did and it's real.i've always use a cheap conair flat iron ..it always snag my hair. I thought all flat iron are the same 30 vs 200 both has ironic place and same size..why pay more after using the ghd the 1st time I will never go back using my conair. Huge different...i wash my hair spray in leave in conditioner and once it's dry I spray heat protectant spray and then I flat iron. You do not need to go over the ghd twice..1 is enough. Took me 15mins and I have long hair down to my waist . Btw no snagging heat up in seconds and I will never relax my hair again thank you soo much..great deal.

I would never recommend the InStyler to anyone! In fact, I think it’s positively dangerous and can’t believe that it hasn’t really changed since it first came out. It’s incredibly easy to burn yourself with this thing. There’s no protection at all from the hot barrel. Unless you have very thin hair or a personal stylist, this takes a long time to get to its claimed result of wet hair to styled hair. It takes much longer to use this on wet hair than the hot air brushes, like the Revlon you reviewed. The InStyler gets tangled in the hair very easily and is difficult to untangle without burning yourself somewhere. If you mostly dry the hair first, then very neatly section it, then use the InStyler carefully with a heat protective glove, you will eventually get about the same result as with any flat iron.


When shopping for the best hair straightener for your unique hair type, it can be difficult to decipher all of the different styles and specs. That’s why we’ve done the hard work for you and created this all-inclusive guide to finding the best hair straightener for your unique head o’ hair, so you can spend less time scrolling through pages of products and more time rocking your new dream ‘do!
I have the heated brush and Instyler. I find that I use the heated brush more only because it is easier and quick as a bed hair controller. The Instyler does need to be handled with care a little more as the barrel is hot but I got a safety cage with mine until I was confident. The Instyler is effective when I am starting from a mass of curles and I want straight. I never use any on wet hair I think that is asking for trouble. I don’t know that one is any better than the other just different options for different times.
The heat can reach up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit; not as high as our other picks but definitely high enough for most hair types. However, for those with stubborn, coarse hair, you may want to look elsewhere for your hair styling needs. Also, this is one of the priciest hair straighteners we’ve tried so you’ll need to save a bit to splurge on this one.
I would recommend this product to any lady that regularly straightens her hair. Product gets hot quick and turns off after about 30 minutes of no use. Simply the best straightener I've ever had.
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.
love it
Love this straightener
Ceramic irons heat up quickly and distribute heat evenly. These irons don’t have cool spots so you can be sure to get an even straightening every single time. These are ideal for those with fine, thin strands. Just be aware that not all flat irons marketed as ‘ceramic’ are pure ceramic. Some only feature a ceramic coating which wears off over time, causing damage to your hair.
At the price of a coffee and sandwich, you will be over the moon with the Revlon 5265CU Shape and Smooth Air Styler. It boasts 108 Amazon customer reviews with combination of 74 at 4 or 5 stars; I believe this is an excellent low cost air styler.  I would buy one of these just as a spare or to carry round as it is also lightweight so makes for a good travel solution.
* * * Update: After returning the above-described item, I bought a ghd Classic Styler in-person from one of their authorized salon dealers (info at ghd's site). When I went to register the hologram and date codes, the ghd site accepted them on the first try. Also, the second unit I bought HAD country-of-manufacture information on the box and on the date sticker (made in China, which some other comments said isn't legit, that seems to be wrong). My unit labeled made-in-China is the one that registered successfully with ghd. Also my second purchase - from the authorized dealer - had a lot of information printed on the bottom of the box, including a bar code, web info, consumer information phone number, design info and information about the product. The unit I purchased from Amazon had NO printing on the bottom of the otherwise authentic-looking box. Draw your own conclusions. Bottom-line: if you buy a ghd styler here, double and triple-check that your unit is for real.
Daughter loves her ghds
These are fab ghd’s makes hair lovely silky great purchase
