Designed to operate at the optimum styling temperature, the ghd Gold Professional Styler's smooth gold plates glide effortlessly through the hair to make straightening on all hair types and lengths even quicker and easier, while their contoured edges help to create perfect curls and waves enabling versatile professional styling results and enhanced shine that last - effortlessly.

Key Features & Benefits:
  • Healthy looking hair: operates at the optimum temperature of 365 degrees F, leaving hair smooth and frizz-free
  • Enhanced shine: smooth, contoured, snag-free plates for a salon shine
  • Effortless professional styling: advanced ceramic heat technology for quick salon results that last
  • Styling versatility: easily creates curls waves and the perfect straight
  • Protective plate guard
  • Sleep mode
  • Universal voltage
  • 2-year manufacturer's warranty
To achieve straight, sleek locks: Mist hair with GHD Heat Protect Spray (sold separately) and place a fine section of dry hair between the plates of your GHD Professional Styler. Ensure that the styler is as close to the root as possible before closing the plates. 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 seductive soft movement: Mist hair with ghd heat protect spray. Section the hair and lightly mist with a curl hold spray to add shine and hold when styling. Place a fine section of hair between the plates of your ghd Gold Styler vertically 1 inch away from the root. Gently close the styler with minimum tension. Turn the styler clockwise by 90 degrees. For a soft curl, pull the styler quickly through the hair away from the head in one 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 a wide-tooth comb.

To achieve stunning curls: Mist hair with GHD Heat Protect Spray (sold separately). Section the hair and lightly mist with a Curl Hold Spray (sold separately) to add shine and hold when styling. Place a fine section of hair between the plates of your GHD Professional Styler vertically one inch away from the root. Gently close the styler with minimum tension. Turn the styler clockwise by 90 degrees. For an intense stunning curl, continue to turn the styler by another 90 degrees as you glide from root to end; pull the styler very slowly away from the head in a continuous smooth movement. For a softer curl, pull the styler quickly through the hair away from the head in one 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 for more extreme curls, or with a wide-tooth comb for soft, loose waves.

    Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

    I purchased this iron directly from the manufacturer.....I had high expectations for this flat iron. I have naturally curly (3c) hair and go to great lengths to ensure proper moisture, care and avoid using heat in the form of appliances. Recently decided to straighten my hair and found this iron did not offer the superior performance the website declares:

    "Smoother gold plates glide effortlessly through the hair to make straightening on all hair types and lengths even quicker and easier, while their contoured edges help to create perfect curls and waves, all with a high shine, salon-style finish".

    Yeah....the above claims were not what I experienced. I haven't used heat on my hair in two years with no chemicals (henna, dye, relaxers, keratin, etc.) in five years. My hair is VERY healthy. The above quoted claim states this iron works well on ANY hair type. Not the case for me....Maybe this iron is better for naturally straight hair. Any company that can state this claim...Good for ANY hair type....has A LOT to learn!! This iron is DEFINITELY NOT GOOD FOR ANY HAIR TYPE! This is VERY evident in the reviews from people with (highly) textured hair....they ALL say this iron did not deliver the claims they state it will on their website.

    Highly textured hair people PLEASE keep searching as this iron will not give you the desired results you seek, let alone the claims stated above, posted on the GHD website. Unless their iron, GHD, is INTUITIVE and can tell the difference between different hair types and can adjust it's abilities to an INDIVIDUAL'S hair type (because we are Not ALL the SAME!), then this claim, Good for all hair types, should NO LONGER BE USED BECAUSE IT IS A LIE! I returned this iron and had to pay $12 for shipping. This iron left my hair dry & crispy and the company did not offer anything to help me repair the damage this iron caused!

      Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

      With the price point, I thought this straightener would change my life. It was decidedly unchanged. It didn't straighten any better than Chi's that cost half the price, and wasn't very good for curling either (which I've done many times with other straighteners). All I felt about this product was "meh". I returned it and will go with something cheaper.

        I love this straightner. It beats up quickly and it makes my hair sleek straight. It honestly cut my styling time in half and it works even on really curly frizzy hair! I'm obsessed.

        I have used a ghd straightener for years. My first one lasted 4 years with daily use. Make sure to purchase the PROFESSIONAL as the cheaper ghd classic does not compare.

          Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

          This flat iron is the best one I have EVER used. I have tried all kinds of flat irons from cheap to expensive. I have been a loyal Chi user for four years, and it did the best job out of the irons I had used up to that point. However, being in Houston, it still was unable to completely de-fuzz my ends. I tried out the GHD classic, and was pretty impressed with the results. After reading reviews, I noticed it was a pretty well agreed-upon fact that a huge amount of flat iron users believe the GHD gold is the best one out there right now. I saw the GHD gold in the 2" plates on the Ulta website, and decided to give it a go since I was wanting to go back to a bigger iron from a 1". I had a coupon for 20% off one item, so I figured why not purchase it, since that brought it down to the same price as the classic. Boy, am I ever so glad I decided to go with the gold! My hair has never looked so healthy and shiny! And FINALLY those pesky ends look like I have a fresh haircut every day now! I have a very long routine while getting ready, mainly due to my hair, so this awesome flat iron has been a very welcome change. I seriously could not be happier! :)

          • Q:

            A LOT of flat irons pull my hair when you get to the ends of your hair, freshly cut or not. Its like the hair gets caught between the plate and the iron. Does this iron pull on your hair?
