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 didn't realize how much I loved my GHD flat iron until my first one ever broke after using it for years. As a "replacement", I bought a CHI one instead, thinking my straight hair wouldn't need something so nice, it would be just fine. But I was so wrong. I never knew the pains of snagging and breaking your hair, waiting what seemed like forever for the iron to heat up, and most of all the fear of potentially burning the house down if I left it on. I finally couldn't take it anymore and purchased a new GHD, even though my CHI one still worked fine. Oh my GOD was I relieved when the iron was hot before I could even put my foundation on, and my sad brittle hair didn't snap off every time I used it, and best of all, the comfort of knowing that if my forgetful brain didn't tell me to shut the thing off that my bathroom would be safe. I'm never going back to another brand again.

          Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

          For months I looked for the perfect straightener. I've got long, thick hair that curls slightly and can be frizzy if I don't do something about it. After reading hundreds of reviews and going to Ulta over and over to feel different straighteners, I decided on this baby. For the first time in my life, I'm EXCITED to do my hair in the mornings! There's no snagging, no need repetitively straighthen the same piece of hair, and no excessive damage that can come from those problems. The stylers I've used before have made my hair dry and break, but my hair actually feels more silky and lively after using my GHD. The sleekness of my straightener makes me feel effortlessly chic, and I know it's a durable design that will last forever. Heat up time is nearly automatic- it takes literal seconds and is such a life saver. If I miss a spot, it's so easy to just turn it back on again. I'm just crazy obsessed and will never ever ever go back to another hot iron!

            Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

            I've owned several straightening irons, and this one by far beats out the competition. I can use it to straighten my hair, or create silky waves, or tight curls, with one swipe of the iron. Very versatile. Less damaging to your hair as you don't have to make multiple passes over the same strands. It is pricey, but it has been worth every dime. Extremely durable. I've dropped it on the ground many times, and it still works as well as the day I purchased it. I've owned this straightening iron for almost 2 years, and this is my second purchase of the same iron. The one that I owned prior lasted for approximately 4 years. Highly recommend.

            This is the same kind of styling iron that my hair dresser uses. So I finally bit the bullet and bought one. (It's pricey) I love it. I have thick shoulder length hair and can straighten it with one pass of my ghd Gold Professional.

            I tried to post a review, but I don't think it worked the first time. I wasn't crazy about this straightener the first few times I used it, but I blame that on me using the same straightener for a few years prior to this one and was just used to it. This straightener keeps my hair pin straight for HOURS! and it heats up in a snap. The only down side is that there is only 1 heat setting. It works for me! I would definitely recommend this product, it's worth the money in my opinion. And it should last you for years to come.

                The ghd classic 1" styler and ghd gold 1" styler are both perfect for quick, everyday styling and can create versatile styles from straight to wavy. The main point of difference is that gold has advanced ceramic technology for enhanced shine.

              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?
