In 2004, ghd entered the North American market, bringing its total worldwide sales generating £37 million in revenue.[12] The Jemella Group, which owned the ghd brand, was bought by Lloyds Development Capital for £55 million in 2006.[7] It was sold eleven months later to Montagu Private Equity for £160 million.[13] Lion Capital, a British private equity firm, purchased ghd in February 2013 for approximately £300 million.[14]
You need to make sure that your flat iron is very light, feeling comfortable in your hand as you style your hair. You’ll also want it to have a tangle-free cord because that’s just a hassle you don’t want to have when you’re focusing on doing your ‘do right. Or, you can just go for a cordless hair straightener to get rid of that potential problem altogether.
I love my new ghd professional original styler 1 inch. The dual voltage allows me to style my hair when traveling which was a real problem before. Compact to take on any trip. Love it
I love it
“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.”
The Revlon Perfect Heat works best on partially dry hair. Hot air blows from inside the brush while the soft bristles spin to take the curl out of your hair. Alternatively, you can leave the ends of your hair curly while straightening the rest. You can also turn off the spin function if desired. The added benefit of a unit that has hot air blown from the inside is that you don’t have to wait for the straightener to heat up.
Yes I would recommend this to friends my husband bought it for me and I love it works great
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 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.
Since 2004, ghd has raised approximately £2.5 million for the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.[28] The company produces a limited edition pink hair iron every year, with £10 of the sale price being donated in support the charity.[29] In 2010, ghd partnered with charity "Mom It Forward" and SafeHouse Denver, a women’s shelter that serves victims of domestic violence and their children, in an event at Sephora.[30]

If being limited to only a handful of temperature settings isn’t really your cup of tea, look no further than the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron! This lightweight flat iron features a whopping 50 heat settings for hair types of all shapes, styles, textures, and colors making it one of the most versatile hair straighteners on our list.
When using a brush straightener, you should keep several things in mind. First, always apply some kind of a thermal protectant. Comb your locks properly. Second, be aware of the hot bristles – you don’t want them to touch your scalp. Third, don’t hold a brush straightener as a regular brush however tempting and easy this seems. You should hold it kind of upside down so that bristles won’t touch your skin. To straighten a strand in one pass, hold the brush tight to the surface of the hair. More detailed guide on how to use a hair straightening brush you can find in this article.
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.
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
This ghd air hairdryer gold professional styler gift set contains two of ghd's professional quality hairstyling products the ghd air hair dryer plus the ghd gold professional styler. This christmas gift set doesn't yet have a price listed at the time of this review but currently the dryer alone costs 99 with the styler alone costing 139 from amazon so if the gift set costs less than 238 it could be a bit of a christmas bargain ghd or good hair day every day as they say is a leeds based hair care products company that has been around since 2001 and in that time has gained a good reputation for professional hair straightening irons amongst other things – my wife has been wanting to try their products for a long time. The air hair dryer included in this set has a powerful 2100 watt motor and features ghd's ionic technology to care for your hair – the comprehensive controls allow you to vary the power and temperature from hot to cool shot. The dryer is ergonomic to use and comes with a generous three metre power cable attached – my wife has been using it for a few weeks and says it is by far the best hair dryer she has ever used.ghd now produce a wide range of hair stylers with their gold professional styler at 139 being towards the top end. This is a salon quality tool that my wife absolutely loves – the build quality and features are first class and you can easily see how the company has gained it's good reputation. This is a high tech product that is safe and easy to use and has been designed for use by top stylists and to help you to produce salon quality results at home. My wife is currently growing her hair longer and is finding this styler extremely useful now it is at mid length – she expects it to be even more so when it reaches it's final length. This is a top quality gift set that would be very welcome at christmas but is perfect for use at anytime – my wife has been really pleased with both of these items and gives this gift set an unreserved five stars for design and performance.
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.

Purchased this straightener and I absolutely love it gets my hair straight a lot faster than the cheap ones. The cheap ones I had to go over and over my hair. This one works much better faster gets my hair nice and smooth. It also curls my hair well when I put a wave in it. It may be pricey but worth it. It also doesn't cool down. The cheap straighteners tend to loose their heat as you use them. This one stays hot

Think of this as an updated version of your regular hairbrush. Its double negative ion technology gives your hair that glass-like shine without any static whatsoever. Its ceramic bristles with nylon cool-tips help keep damage to a minimum by releasing far-infrared heat — in a mere moment, it penetrates the outer layer of the hair cuticle and heats it from the inside out.
We don’t know too many people that are using their hair straighteners vertically, but there must be a few since ISA has made a point of clarifying that this model is intended only to be used horizontally, i.e., perpendicular to your hair. According to the manufacturer, using the hair straightener horizontally reduces hair pulling for a more comfortable experience. This may be particularly important to you if your hair tends to knot easily or you have unruly curls and texture.

no matter what hair straightener I purchase I always go back to my ghd hair straightener.always does an amazing job


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
I got these after using my sister in law's ghds and realising that my 11 year old babyliss ones were sadly inferior. I love that they heat up really quickly as when you have 3 small boys to get to school pre school every second counts. The results last overnight too with maybe a quick spruce up the following morning. All in all worth every penny
