Make every day styling even easier with ghd's award-winning Classic 1" Styler. Operating at the optimum styling temperature with a rounded barrel, it ensures professional styling results for smooth, frizz-free hair - easily.

Key Features & Benefits:

  • Easy styling: floating plates glide through hair easily
  • Professional results: ceramic heat technology operates at 365 degrees F to make your hair as smooth and straight as your stylist does
  • Styling flexibility: round barrel helps create curls and waves
  • Sleep mode
  • Universal voltage
  • 2-year manufacturer's warranty


 

 

Achieve straight, sleek locks: Mist hair with ghd heat protect spray and place a fine section of dry hair between the plates of your ghd Classic Styler. Ensure that the styler is as close to the root as possible before closing the plates. Then gently move toward the tip of the section in one simple gliding motion. Repeat the process with each section of hair, gliding once from roots to ends.

Achieve stunning curls: Mist hair with ghd heat protect spray. Section the hair and lightly mist with a curl hold spray. This will help give hold when creating each curl. Place a fine section of hair between the plates of your ghd Classic Styler vertically 1 inch away from the root. Gently close the styler with minimum tension. Turn the styler clockwise by 90 degrees; continue to turn the styler by another 90 degrees as you glide from root to end. For an intense curl, pull the styler very slowly away from the head in a continuous smooth movement. An s-shaped vertical curl is created. To complete the style, repeat through all sections. Finally, separate and brush out the curls with your fingers.

      This is my second time buying this straightener. I had my last one for years and I'm only having to buy a new one because this last one didn't survive my summer trip to Europe. I think the difference in power levels fried it. Love this straightener. It works extremely well and is easy to operate. It is also very light weight.

          Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

          I bought this straightener after my last (an off-brand Chi) caught and pulled my hair and caused a lot of breakage. It's worth the money! I've had it for a few weeks now and it hasn't snagged my hair once! It leaves my hair shiny and smooth and is quicker than any straightener I've had before, due to the quick heat-up time. I prefer a curling wand to curl, but my friend curled her hair with this straightener and it turned out gorgeous!

              This didn't have a heat setting you could adjust, just HOT! It was too hot for my hair. I'm returning so I can get one that I can adjust the temp. I paid too much to have it just fry my hair. Heated up super fast though!

              My hair is in between wavy and straight, a bit damaged so frizz prone. I love the waves this creates and also a straight frizz free look. Just wish it was a little bit more affordable as it did cost a pretty penny and oh it would be nice if it had multiple heat settings not just and on/off button

              My stylist recommend this flat iron. I've only used a couple of times but I'm already in love. Heats quickly and beeps when ready, smoothes and created waves quickly and easily.

                I purchased the ghd platinum less than a year ago and now it doesn't work. I've read multiple reviews online from people facing the same issue as mine. Customer service is terrible, they ask for all the codes and then tell you if you don't have a proof of purchase -even though I did register/verify the authenticity of the styler- they can't help.

                    You can use it anywhere in the world and it will reach the optimal temperature of 365 degrees, however you still need an adapter/converter since the plug is different.

The Gold Professional Series (1/2", 1" and 2") can do the same, but has advanced ceramic technology for higher shine and a salon finish. Both have universal voltage, a 9 ft swivel cord and automatic sleep mode.
