See how to get ghd's Cool Girl Wave.
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.

Bought this to make curls as suggested by my stylist. Cannot do it!!! It is a quality straightener. My daughter was impressed when she saw it but cannot make curls with it to save my life! Guess I will always be an old fashioned curling iron girl....

        It straightens hair so well. I have the curliest of hair and this this thing takes with no more than three swipes. I love to use it as a curler, too. It can give nice curls, curls at your ends for a blowout look, or straighten. I would definitely recommend this.

          I love this hair straightener. I've purchased many different brands, both inexpensive and expensive, and none work as well as this one. I have very thick, wavy hair. This straightener heats up quickly and is the perfect temperature to straighten without frying my hair. I use it to straighten and to curl my hair. I can straighten my hair and bangs daily without drying my ends. It also creates nice waves or tight curls.

            I have dry, dyed, frizzy hair. I always wanted a quality flat iron & this one does not disappoint. With some heat protectant, my hair is literally transformed into silky, sleek locks. Another plus is how fast it heats up.

            Love how quickly it heats up, can straighten or curl hair with ease. Does not pull or snag hair. Wish it had temperature settings. Also a lock would be nice for easier transport.

                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 Classic 1" Styler is perfect for easy, every day styling from straightening to waves. 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.
