This straightener unfortunately was a huge disappointment. I actually ended up returning it. My biggest complaint was the lack of heat - I’m all about not damaging my hair and I totally get not having a ridiculously high temperature available that will fry hair but it simply would did not get hot enough to straighten my hair. I would spend so long trying to get my hair remotely under control. I had high hopes but it wasn’t for me.

This is my current go to styler at home. The one inch plates work perfectly for medium length hair. I don’t recommend using this plate size for longer hair , as it can be a task. The plates heat up and beep in about 60 seconds making this a necessity for busy people as well as a busy and timely stylist. There is also a hard plastic sleeve to cover the plates so it can be packed away quickly. They heat up to 450°f so that’s useful when traveling.

Still like my CHI more, but this flat iron definitely gets the job done. I feel like I have to go over my hair a few times to get it straight.. it doesn’t make my hair flat straight which is good. The only thing I absolutely do not like is that my hair ends up getting wavy by the end of the night and it’s usually curly again by the next day.

I love my ghd straightener! I have had mine for almost 8 years and have never had any issues with it! It leaves my hair sleek and smooth after using. This is by far my favorite beans of straightener I have ever used! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a straightener that will last a long time and deliver great results!

I’ve had my ghd for 7 years. It’s the one hair tool I ALWAYS pack when I leave home. It’s slim, light and effective. This tool helps me achieve straight, wavy and curly styles. The heat up time and auto shut off features ain’t bad either

Absolutely love. I use my ghd Classic Styler almost every day, and it tames my thick, coarse hair quickly! Section out your hair and take half an inch of hair at a time for sleek and smooth perfection.

I have very curly, frizzy hair and this iron is the best at taming it. I love the auto shut off of you accidentally leave it on. I also like that you can choose the temperature which I couldn’t do on my chi. This iron really clamps down on the hair preventing the need to go over the same section multiple times. The one I have now has been going strong for about 5 years!

Best flat iron, 2 year warranty when bought from the website. Don’t have to adjust any heat settings you just flip the switch on. Smooths out all hair textures hair really well! And if you forget to turn it off the heat element shuts off and the flat iron beeps at you until you manually push the switch to off which is amazing since lots of us forget to turn off our flat iron after use.

This is my second GHD flat iron. I had the first one for around 5 years. Any flat iron that lasts more than 1-2 years already gets points from me. I broke the cord on the old one but I liked that iron better than the ones I have used in the past (Chi), so I got a new GHD and went a step up from the classic styler to the this time. I can't remember what website I ordered it from but it was on sale. It was still expensive but knowing that my last one lasted for years it's cheaper than me buying a cheaper iron and needing to replace it yearly. It takes about 30 seconds to heat up, it does not have different temperature settings. When it's ready it makes noise, it startled me the first time because I wasn't expecting it lol. It sounds like a cell phone ring tone. Now I like it bc I know when it's ready to use. It comes with a little black silicone (I think) cover that slips over the plates so you can put that on and put it away while it's still hot, or if you're packing, throw it in your suitcase as soon as you're done using it. I have long, naturally thick frizzy curl, that I bleach, blow dry, basically put through torture! The humidity where I live has been AWFUL lately. There are days that I flat iron my hair and it looks great and smooth and I walk outside and it explodes. Unfortunately I think that until I find a miracle product or go back to getting keratin treatments, that's just the reality of my hair and the humidity. I dont think any flat iron will be able to miraculously lock out all humidity. I get my hair shinier and smoother with my GHD iron than with other irons I have used. Now, if I can learn how to master flat iron curls!
