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.

    Constant Issues

    By Ashley

    Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

    I bought my GHD a little over two years ago and had to replace it two times within warranty. Both times the company made ME pay shipping. Now the product has quit (again) but now that it's outside of warranty, I have no options. I tried to take it to a small appliance repair person but the cords are unavailable and GHD is not willing to provide part. Very frustrating for $230 product!

      Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

      I had been waiting to purchase this straighner and I was hesitant to do so because of the price. My current straightner finally stopped working, so I purchased it. I like that it makes my hair feel super soft and adds shine to it. The one thing I dislike about this product is that when you place on a surface it falls over. I've had straighners that have a flat handle so that when you put it down it doesn't fall over. I was very disappointed about this because I have to have something underneath it so that it wont tilt and burn the surface I have it on.

        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 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.

            • 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?

                This would be the perfect iron for you! The plates are smooth and contoured with a high glide coating for snag-free styling.
