Find in Store-

Developed in collaboration with ghd scientists and top stylists, the award-winning ghd Air is designed to help you unlock the secrets to a gorgeous salon blowout. The ghd Air uses an industrial ionic generator which is placed closer to the nozzle and to the hair, which means you get the full benefit of the emitted ions to lock in moisture and deliver softer, smoother, shinier results that last longer. The professional AC motor delivers more power and variable temperature controls, and the choice of two nozzles allow you to tailor your blow-dry to your hair type. A cool shot button helps set your style in place with a blast of cold air.

Key Features & Benefits:

  • Salon Strength AC Motor: for more powerful, faster drying
  • Advanced Ionic Technology: for reduced frizz and smoother, shinier hair
  • Ergonomic design: for effortless styling whether you're right or left handed
  • Includes 2 concentrator nozzles
  • Cool shot button
  • Diffuser adapter ring
  • 1 year manufacturer's warranty
Always use ghd Heat Protect Spray (sold separately) before styling to protect your hair and lock your look in place. Dry small sections at a time, holding a round brush horizontally to create more volume. Dry small sections at a time, holding a round brush vertically to create more wave. Use the cool shot button to set the shape.

        Got so many compliments on my hair every time after using it. It was a little awkward and heavy to use at first but once I got the hang of working the bottons it got much easier. I have thick curly hair and it only takes me about 25 min to blow dry straight.

        Comments about Ghd Air Professional Performance Hairdryer:

        I bought this hairdryer in Dec 2016 and it was the first time I spent more than $30-40 on a hair dryer. It worked great, and was a definite improvement over past dryers; however just a few months after the 1 year warranty expired, something inside the dryer exploded into lots of little pieces. Only option is to buy another dryer - it will NOT be another of these.

          Comments about Ghd Air Professional Performance Hairdryer:

          So cliche to say but I have never written a review in my life. I always read reviews and I appreciate the people who take the time to do it, but I've never felt compelled to write one myself. I've had a Chi Touch for the past four years and the screen finally stopped working. The hair dryer works, but you cannot change the heat or speed now. It's stuck on one setting. I've had a GHD flat iron for years and I like it so I decided to go with their hairdryer after reading reviews. I have natural curls and I usually blow them out straight. This dryer is light weight and easy to maneuver around my head. My hair is sleek and is not frizzy!! I really don't have to use my flat iron if I want the volume. If I wanted it stick straight I could use my flat iron. It looks like a professional blow out!! Highly recommend this dryer. It is pricey but it's so worth it. I think I would forgo some everyday perks like Starbucks and eating out to save money to buy this if money is an issue for you. It's your hair, which to me is is your crowning feature, so I would splurge on this item.

            This hair drier left my hair frizz free and soft, but it was too big for my liking. I was looking for a small lightweight hair drier. It might also destroy colored hair from the heat and it doesn't have infrared.

                  What is the weight of the dryer? This question has been asked a couple times but the answer previously given was a mere 3.87 ounces. This does not seem possible. One of the cons listed above is "heavy" and this would indicate it weighs less than 1/4 of a pound?

                    Absolutely this would be perfect for you. It comes with 2 speeds and 3 heat settings, so if you'd rather not have bone straight results, try blow drying on one of the lower temperatures.
