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.

    My husband purchased this flat iron for me as a gift and I will never stray away from GHD! I use this as my hair straightener, and as my curling iron. My mother in law used it once and went out and purchased her own because nothing compares!

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

    This straightener works on both my natural hair, thin processed and damaged, and my tape in extensions that are a much thicker texture. If I have time I'll change the settings to accommodate. It straightens beautifully, and curls okay but I find it snags my hair. However the ceramic plates are better than the titanium so it's a good trade off on my opinion. Overall I would totally buy this again, it's already lasted a year. My only advice is to give it time and learn what works best if it snags your hair

      Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

      Product is great! Over the last 10 years I've used my GHD straightener daily. I have naturally thick, curly/frizzy hair and this does just the trick. With the proper heat protection spray, the GHD leaves my hair soft, smooth and shiny. The styler is versatile -- easily creating beautifully straight hair, curls or natural beach-style waves -- just takes a little practice! I wouldn't trade mine for any straightener on the market.

      Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

      I was so bad at curling my hair with a straightener until I bought this one and I finally got it. Now it takes no time and all and the shine is AMAZING!!! Other straighteners would leave my hair feeling dry and burnt but this leaves such nice shine with smoothed out curls. It takes no time at all to straighten my hair because heats up so fast. Great for a quick style on the go!

            I thought this would be a good replacement to the CHI Origin, but it wasn't. I wouldn't mind trying out another GHD straightener's as they seem ti be liked but a lot. But this particular one is Okay. As I said the CHI Original one I have (more than 7 years old) is still better than this.

              My hairdresser used this on me and I knew I needed to have it! This flat iron leaves my hair super sleek, shiny and soft. I love that it doesn't have a heat setting so you know you can never make it too hot for your hair. I use it daily along with a heat protector spray and have no damage. I would definitely recommend and purchase more products from GHD.

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.
