Product Description

A sleek styler featuring two-inch golden ceramic plates that are ideal for styling thick hair and creating larger curls. The ghd Gold Professonal 2” styler is ghd’s sleekest yet: luxurious golden plates smooth your hair for an ultra-shiny result while golden accents add a touch of glamour. Sleek design allows for better handling of all types of styling. The rounded barrel easily creates curls, waves, flicks, and the "perfect straight." Ceramic heaters and contoured plates glide through hair for smoother, snag-free styling. The body stays cooler than the current generation of stylers, making the ghd Gold Professional Styler cooler to touch and lighter to handle. A protective plate-guard secures the hot plates when the styler is switched off, allowing you to safely pack them away without damaging your belongings. Sleep mode automatically switches off heaters if not used for 30 minutes. Universal voltage means optimum performance where you travel. see more...

As a professional hair stylist I was weary in trying something other than my CHI. I have fallen in love. It fits in my hand so much easier. The beveled edge makes doing curls so much easier. The paint won't flake off because of the great construction of the outside of the flat iron. Heats evenly so you don't singe your clients hair. I will be using a lot more of the GHD brand!

Love this flat iron. Has been with me for 3 years now. Gets hot and straightens with one try. Shuts off on its own when it's been a certain amount of time, which I love cuz oops sometimes we forget to turn it off. Beeps when it's warm which only takes a few seconds. Makes my hair shiny. Overall great flat iron!!

Es una excelente plancha, puedes hacer todo tipo de peinados con ella, desde que la use por primera vez quedé encantada con ella. No es económica, pero es de gran calidad.

I absolutely love my ghd hairstyler! I have had it for 6 years and it still works amazingly well. I love how quickly it heats up and I love how it is not dry my hair.

I honestly bought this brand thinking it must be very good due to the high price. It came in a cute box and looks fancy but It was only ok for a professional straightener. I was using an Infa-shine before and I ended up going back to it. I ended up buying a Chi straightener later. The Infra-shine that I purchased many years ago is still my go to straightener! I even had it with me for 3 years in while living in China without a converter. My suggestion is this: if you are not using a professional straightener I would recommend this product over all the Revlon and Con Air products out there. But, if you want the best product for your money I would search elsewhere. This product is sleek and pretty but not "the answer." NOTE: I have corse, thick, hair dyed hair. IF you have a different type of hair, there is a chance this product may be more useful to you,

I have had this hair straightener for 8 years, and it's still going strong! The styling is super sleek and this works so amazingly well in my hair. It has an extra long swivel cord, and heats up in what seems like 2 seconds. It gets hot, and straightens my hair quickly. I never have to do more than 1-2 passes. You can't beat a quality product that stands the test of time, gets the job done well and gets it done fast! I highly recommend this straightener to anyone who wants a good hair day, everyday!

I have been using this hair straightener for 2 years now and it still works just as good as the first day I got it. It heats up in only 10 seconds. It gets extra hot so be careful. It straightens hair to pin straight with one slow swipe. It doesn't feel like it fries my hair. I mean, you should always use a heat iron serum before using any heat tools. My hair still feels healthy. It's expensive but it definitely is worth the money.

I love this straightner it's been a life saver for me. It's different than others because it heats in seconds, don't burn your hair, don't fizz your hair, the mineral of this product is glass and other etc. I enjoy this product and I recommend it to people who are looking for a great quality investment of a straighter that leaves your hair smooth and straight.

I'm on my second ghd flat iron in 3 years and I will absolutely keep buying this brand. I have thick / course / dry hair and it is very hard on most hair styling products. I've broken / worn out more straighteners than I can count (ConAir, Hot Tools, etc.)-- this is the ONLY brand that consistently gives me excellent results without burning my hair. Although it's more expensive than what you'd find at Walmart or Sally's, the longevity and consistency make up for it!

Is this flat iron good for thick hair? Is it damaging to already dry hair? And is it best to use a hair protecting spray or is it not necessary with this flat iron?

I've been contemplating buying a ghd straightener for so long because of the price. I have thick curly hair so I usually don't bother straightening my hair because it takes so long. Is it worth the purchase? Is there be a drastic difference from other straighteners?
