Upper-class people have always used their hairstyles to signal wealth and status. Wealthy Roman women wore complex hairstyles that needed the labours of several people to maintain them,[44] and rich people have also often chosen hairstyles that restricted or burdened their movement, making it obvious that they did not need to work.[45] Wealthy people's hairstyles used to be at the cutting edge of fashion, setting the styles for the less wealthy. But today, the wealthy are generally observed to wear their hair in conservative styles that date back decades prior.[46]
this is the original because I registered it with ghd. The flat iron is light weight and you only have to go over your hair once. I am an indian with long and very frizzy hair and this flat iron does the trick. It leaves the hair straight and smooth highly recommended.
There are 12 heat settings on this brush with a selectable temperature range from 250-450°, so it can be used on all types of hair even though it’s best on thick locks. However, this model does not generate negative ions, which are the best weapon against frizz and create smoother, shinier hair. (The AsaVea 4 does use ionic technology and sells for a similar price, but the review team prefers the 3.0 because it uses MCH for more consistent heat delivery, doesn’t have brush tips that can catch on hair, and has more heat settings.)
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.
You cannot fault quality and excellence both things we have come to expect from ghd. Some brands are hyped for no reason but ghd is a case of 'you get what you pay for' and what you get in this instance is very good indeed. The perfect christmas gift for the wife mum partner daughter in your life. You can rely on this brand I assure you.
FHI’s rounded edge allows you to easily curl or add waves without much effort. It’s almost as small as a travel flat iron, and I love that it straightens even the poofiest sections with just a single pass. But don’t just take my word for it, listen to Beyoncé (via InStyle): “I’m crazy about it! I can’t live without my flatiron! It takes me about an hour to do my hair, and the only time I don’t is when I’m on vacation.”

Nothing much to say except for this is the best investment I've ever made it leaves my hair so perfect and I love that it goes into sleep mode. Such a cool feature

For hot air brushes, the same advice goes: always use a heat protectant, select the right temperature for your hair type, pay attention to the speed, intensity, and the barrel size of the curling brush. Ceramic and tourmaline coatings are considered to be the best ones for a hot air brush barrel. The only problem that may occur is that your locks may get stuck in the brush bristles. To avoid this, choose from models with tangle-free anti-static bristles, like this one.
"Unite Pro Tools Flat Iron is an easy-to-use, low maintenance iron," says Chris Dylan. Dylan works with Kylie Jenner so finding an easy-to-use tool is a must when you’re helping someone go from a platinum blonde bob to jet black floor length extensions. in a span of a week. He notes that with a fast-heating iron and beveled edges, it creates soft waves and has a great temperature gauge that keeps you firmly in control of the heat.
Curling and straightening hair requires the stylist to use a curling rod or a flat iron to get a desired look. These irons use heat to manipulate the hair into a variety of waves, curls and reversing natural curls and temporarily straightening the hair. Straightening or even curling hair can damage it due to direct heat from the iron and applying chemicals afterwards to keep its shape. There are irons that have a function to straighten or curl hair even when its damp (from showering or wetting the hair), but this requires more heat than the average iron (temperatures can range from 300–450 degrees). Heat protection sprays and hair-repairing shampoos and conditioners can protect hair from damage caused by the direct heat from the irons.
hot immediately smooth easy to use recommended by my hairstylists and well worth the money have not owned a chi so can't compare.

Best iron ever.. Works wonders in just a few strokes and few minutes.
Okay so to begin I wanted a ghd being the top of the line hair straightener in competition with the sudo but I didnt want to pay the 200 price tag so amazon was my best choice.i want to say my previous hair straightener was a solia which is also one of the top hair straightener and I purchased it straight from folica.comcompared to the solia the ghd defiantly beats it and I'm very happy I purchased it.a lot of complaints for the ghd was that people kept getting fake non legit ones I am happy to say I received a legit ghd and you can too.the best way to know if it is legit whether it comes from amazon or not is to check the sellers reviews always do so . I usually buy from those who have usually more then 1000 reviews and score at least a 97 . That is how you know whether you are getting the real deal.second when you receive it to test its authenticity sign up for its warranty from the little paper they give you included. If it has the shiny sticker inside the clasps of the straightener it is most likely the real deal but to make sure you should sign up for again its warranty. If it goes through congrats you have a real ghd this is how you can tell if your ghd is a fake fake fake if it is made in china it is manufactured in p.r.c. Or south korea if the warranty does not work if you do not have the shiny sticker in italso be cautious when buying from a third party seller.also the warranty will most likely be voided if you buy from amazon but you should still sign up for it to check for its authenticity.hope this helped guys
Ordered as replacement for older ghds which had developed an intermittent power problem due no doubt to winding cable around the tongs to keep them closed . Great value and work perfectly. Recommend alternative means of keeping jaws closed in future try the travel pouch
amazing styler curls my stubborn hair perfectly
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.[10][11]
My friend recommend this flat iron and I am so glad she did it works wonderfully. Heats up very quickly and beeps when its ready for use. Does a great job of straightening my long hair and it lasts until my next wash. Worth the money

That is just one of the reasons that hair straighteners are such a wonderful tool to keep in your beauty arsenal; not only does this nifty little device give you movie star-quality straight hair when you want it (sorry blow out bars), but it can even create the same curls as those confusing barrel-ended curling irons! So, clean out your cabinet under the sink and make room for that makeup you’ve been eyeing or the perfume your husband forgot to buy you for Valentine’s Day last year, because a professional-grade hair straightener can literally replace all of your existing heated hair care tools!

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.

always pleased with ghd products no change here

Love this brand very happy
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.
after reading previous reviews about this possibly being a fake I was a little worried. I waited until the priced dropped and bit the bullet. I was able to register it on the ghd website and I am happy to report it is not a fake so far it heats up really quick and straightens in one stroke I am really glad I bought it for 80 less on amazon.
I love this styler. Use it daily it heats up literally in seconds straightens my super thick frizzy hair very fast and as of yet has not caused noticeable damage. I absolutely think it's worth the money. Also I was able to register my product it was a genuine ghd.
So let me clear up some of the mixed reviews. When you click on the link to this straightener the ghd classic styler the item is sold by different sellers. So someone who buys today may not buy from the same place that had the straightener yesterday. Which explains why some have received fakes. Click on the seller read the reviews about them do your research.however with that being said I purchased mine from salon logistix my ghd was authentic and I was able register it with the ghd site. I straightened my hair 30 minutes ago with it and am so happy with my purchase. I have natural caucasian hair but my waves are deep and usually take a couple passes to go away. This straightener ironed them out in about 2 passes. It heats up in seconds makes little beeps when turned on and hot and never snagged my hair huge problem with my chi . I would definitely recommend this straightener I previously paid 250 for a t3 mane tamer this ghd does just as well and for less than half the price
works like a charm

Very good styler and much cheaper than in the store.always difficult to find good quality not damaging styler with dual voltage.very pleased
This straightener is awesome especially if you travel. Unlike the chi you do not need a converter in europe. Just plug in an adapter and you are set
this is my 2nd ghd I love this straightener
excelent
I had a set of ghd straighteners a few years back and my daughter always said they were the best she used.this new set is of apparent equal standard containing the straighteners and a heat resistant mat. The real bonus with these is the heat limiting built in setting of 185 degrees which ensures no hair burn. The second bonus is the hot plates being both above and below the hair.great and highly recommended
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.

The best hair straighteners should offer you adjustable temperature settings so you can customize it depending on your hair type. This is incredibly important if you have thin/fine, delicate, or damaged hair because it allows you to ensure that the iron doesn’t get too hot for your hair. Basically, having the ability to set the temperature/heat setting gives you more control. But if you prefer to have a set temperature, then you should take note just how much heat your hair can take and how hot your hair straightener can get.
my last two flat irons were sultra. I decided to try a different brand since the last sultra didn't last nearly as long as the first. So far so good with this ghd. Seems to be on par with sultra or maybe slightly better especially how fast it heats up . I bought from a seller with 100 rating fulfilled by amazon. And was able to register the flat iron on ghd's site without any problems.

my old ghds where nine years old and finally died lol I got these ones and was very happy quick delivery as well very light weight compared to my old ones but I checked the authenticity of them on ghds website and they are they real mccoy lol


Great straighteners first pair for the missus and I think she is hooked. Loves the quick best up and thermal trip feature.
I've had this straightener for a few years now and it still works just as well as the day I got it. I've even had professional hair stylists tell me that this straightener is the best. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it because you won't be buying a new one for a very long time.
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
just received my ghd's ..i ordered them after 10pm in the evening and they arrived the following night about 7.45 can't believe how quickly they turned up as the email said they will be delivered on 7th january so I'm very happy. I like these straighteners as they really do work I started using them about 2 and a half years ago but have given my previous ones to my daughter so I decided to purchase another set for myself. I would definitely recommend them.
love the new silicone cover fir the hot iron. Makes it easy to use in the gym pre work and shove straight in bag without worry.new curved barrel makes for easy curls. Best irons i’ve tried.

I don’t think the flat iron as a styling tool needs any introduction, and many of you have probably used one at some point. I know how hard it is to pick the perfect styling tool for your hair – at least, the one that’s good enough. So, to make it a bit easier for you, I’ve decided to draw up a list of top 10 flat irons. It’s based on both, my own experience and other people’s flat irons reviews. So, I’m trying to be objective and bias-free here.
I have owned a ghd flat iron for about 3years. My daughter borrowed it on a daily basis. Decided to get her one of her own for christmas. I highly recommend the ghd.
When you’re shopping for a hair straightener it’s important to consider your hair type and the style you want for your hair. Some heat tools are designed to straighten and smooth your hair to prevent frizz while others may just be useful for basic straightening on hair that’s already fairly straight or simply wavy. Different temperature settings work better for different hair styles. Some straighteners are also great to create loose waves in your hair making them ideal for those who like to experiment with different hair styles. It can be helpful to read online consumer reviews when you’re choosing a hair straightener to ensure you get the best option for the money you want to spend.

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]

The ghd dry and style gift set contains both the ghd gold styler and ghd air hairdryer housed inside a large beautifully presented gold black gift box. Presentation is superb throughout.the smart styler has an advanced heat sensor and heats to no more than 185 c to maintain healthy hair while the round shape of the barrel is excellent for producing wavy curly or straight results. The styler hearts up in record time 25 seconds and has an automatic switch off function if they're unused after 30 minutes. There's also a protective plate included in the box for extra safety. An absolute joy to use and the plates are so smooth they glide through my hair in one sweep without tangling.the ghd air dryer is the first professional salon quality hairdryer from ghd. The shape and weight of the dryer are excellent and the design will suit either right or left handed users. There's a powerful motor inside the dryer 1800w ac which means quicker drying times and it's comfortable to move around as it's light and has a long 3m power cord. My hair tends to have a lot of static because it's so fine but this dryer is super fast and locks in moisture for excellent results. Has several power and temperature controls plus a cool shot button which gives off a blast of cool air to set curls or more ornate styles.these are both superb products and the presentation is so good they certainly have the 'wow' factor. More than happy to recommend.


Very well presented straightener that is fairly heavy and robust. My partner had a ghd for many years before this and was always really happy. This is even better. It comes with a nice bag but not much else. It heats up fast and does a really good job. I hope this will be just as relaible as her previous ghd model.
Most of the hair straighteners we reviewed heat up in under a minute, but the Cloud Nine Original Flat Iron has to be one of the fastest on the market! In as little as 20 seconds, this hair straightener transforms from cool to hot, hot, hot! With this model, there is no need to wait around for your hair straightener to warm up, which means you spend less time getting ready in the morning and more time getting on with your day.
got my ghd classic 1 inch styler straightener today and was able to register it on the ghd site with no problem. I was a little hesitant to purchase through amazon b c of a few scary reviews that people had received fakes. If this one is a fake at least I was able to register it with non problem and will get a guaranteed from ghd as a replacement. I dont for see having any problems... I purchased this ghd straightener as a replacement to the one I purchased off amazon well over 4 1 2 years ago it just died last week . I loved my last ghd straightener good luck
Nbsp in the attached video I explain how to register your flat iron and check for authenticity that you are actually receiving an actual ghd product. I was quite surprised to see so many negative reviews stating that they received a fake product. Many went on to talk about holes on the cord and the prong and where it is made but actually those are old posts on the internet and the only sure way is by going to ghd website and registering your product. Even at the ghd website some of the illustrations were out of date which I point out in the video. By entering the halogram sticker unique code and date code of your product you will be emailed to let you know if your product is genuine.now let me discuss about the benefits of the flat iron itself. I have tried numerous brands of flat irons. From hot tools fhi chi hai chameleon to sedu. This is my first ghd brand and I am happy I got to try it out. The ghd classic 1 inch styler uses ceramic plate technology which helps reduce breakage and damage to the hair because the ceramic can glide through your hair without pulling it. It also maintains an even temperature throughout the plates with no cold spots which means less passing on the hair.the ghd has actual ceramic plates and not aluminum plates that are ceramic coated which in time will wear off chip and peel. Ceramic produces negative ions. Dry or damaged hair has positive ions. When you use the ghd ceramic flat iron you are applying negative to positive so you counteracting and balancing the condition of your hair. The negative ions will make your hair smoother silkier and shiny.however what is missing tourmaline. Tourmaline also emits negative but has far infrared heat. It can get rid of odors and pollutants. When tourmaline is heated it can produce more negative ions than plain ceramic plates. This means means far more less damage by locking in your hairs own moisture and minimizing frizz static electricity and flyaways. That is why I give this flat iron four stars instead of five. I prefer a flat iron that has both ceramic and tourmaline technology like the sedu pro ionic ceramic tourmaline flat iron. Not that this flat iron is a bad choice but my sedu is my all time favorite and rated 5 stars and more.
GHD’s “styler” is permanently set to 365 degrees Fahrenheit, which the company says is the highest temperature hair can tolerate before it becomes damaged. As a person who went from a dark brunette to blonde highlights, I can vouch for its straightening power on processed hair. And though I don’t typically think of “comfort” as a flat iron necessity, the springy hinge that connects the two plates really did make it easier to clamp and glide the tool down my hair with minimal effort.
* * * 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.
the best straightener that i’ve ever used.

If you are looking for faster results, a hair straightening brush is more appropriate – it is a hybrid between a brush and a straightening iron, used best on dried hair and effective even for the most unruly naturally curly hair. You can use the straightening brush on hair that is washed and dried, and obtain the straightening iron results with  much easier and intuitive brushing move.


You cannot fault quality and excellence both things we have come to expect from ghd. Some brands are hyped for no reason but ghd is a case of 'you get what you pay for' and what you get in this instance is very good indeed. The perfect christmas gift for the wife mum partner daughter in your life. You can rely on this brand I assure you.
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.
Unlike all the other hair straighteners on our list, the Turboion RBB Croc Classic looks a little bit different. It looks more like its namesake – a croc. But that’s not the only thing that makes it stand out. First of all, the shape is unique and perfectly ergonomic. It fits very comfortably in your hands that you barely feel the strain as you style your hair. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that it only weighs 1 pound. The smooth titanium plates on this flat iron gives you a very smooth glide. There are 17 different digital heat settings that range from 280 degrees Fahrenheit to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Absolutely love this styler. I have extremely thick hair and have so many issues with my previous chi pulling my hair out. The ghd does not pull at all. Not only does it heat up super quick but it gives me a perfect do in no time a must buy
This is a styler which takes the guilt out of heat styling and the world’s first smart styler that predicts your hair’s needs. Tri-zone technology ensures that heat is maintained so hair remains healthy, glossy and strong; giving you great results without compromising the condition of your hair. The intelligent irons constantly adapt to your individual hair fibres to deliver the optimum styling temperature at all times. Styling with the ghd Platinum+ has also been proven to be safe for coloured hair as well as reducing hair breakage and increasing shine.

I have fine hair but a lot of it. I haven't straightened my hair in years so I finally decided it was time to buck up the necessary cash for a decent one.so far so great


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.[2] In the 1980s, women pulled back their hair with scrunchies. During the 1980s, punk hairstyles were adopted by many people.

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
