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.

Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

I should have paid more attention to the lack of heat settings. I have fine hair and I know this is going to damage my hair if I keep using it so I will be returning it and trying out a Sedu with temperature control. It does heat up fast and made my hair smooth and shiny. Had some trouble using it to curl my hair though but maybe it was just me. This would work great for someone with thick hair who needs over 400 degrees of heat.

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

    I've had this flat iron for 6 years going on 7 and it still gives me the most sleek shiny and straight hair ever! Mine didn't come with a case but you can buy them for cheap. I like how the flat iron has an automatic sensor that shuts it off when not in use. My problem with past straighteners is that they snag my hair and sometimes give my hair a bad smell. I recall using my friends chi straightener and was not impressed at all. I had to straighten my hair multiple times just to get the smooth sleek effect I was going for. Til this day I've never found a flat iron better than my ghd classic. I have friends who use my ghd flat iron and tell me how amazing it is and ask where I got it. I know it's a bit pricey but totally worth every penny. You really do get what you pay for!!!

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

    Worth the money-- so much faster and makes my hair feel so much softer. I would recommend this one instead of the gold more expensive one because the Ulta associate said their really isn't any difference. Save yourself some Money and get this one!!

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1" Styling Iron:

    The flat iron did not heat up fast and to a maximum. It snagged my hair and left flyaways. I sent it back for an exchange as soon as I can. I exchanged it for the Babyliss 1 1/4" and I absolutely love it!

        Went to turn it on this morning and it wouldn't beep or light up :( very sad. I bought it from Ulta September 2013 and it just died January 2015. I feel like I had cheaper hair straighteners like chi that lasted for 5 plus years! very disappointed with Ghd
