See how to get ghd's Cool Girl Wave.
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.

Not impressed

By Hepcat327

Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

I had such high hopes for this GHD iron. I have been wanting one for a few years now and decided to get one after my beloved Chi died after 9 years! I was not impressed at all. I have thick wavy hair with some frizzy spots at my temples. My Chi was a single pass one and done and this one had to be passed through several times to get it smooth. I even blow dried my hair super straight and still felt like this iron left my hair frizzy in some spots. I'm happy it works well for plenty of others but it's definitely not my cup of tea.

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

    I've had this hair straightener since age 17, and I turn 27 next month. This thing keeps going, and still works as well as day 1. It was and still is expensive but I think it's worth the value. No regrets. Prior to this I owned chis that pooped out after 1-2 years so I probably would have spent much more over time had i continued with chi. I will never purchase any other brand hair straightener. You're welcome.

        Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

        Love love love this product. One pass straightening! Also doubles as a curling iron!! I have long thick curly hair. Lasted several years (6yrs) with nearly daily use before swivel cord began to short out. Received a free straightener from another brand after purchase of a hair dryer and it didn't even compare to the GHD. I actually put electrical tape on GHD cord and continued to use as the other brand needed several passes with minimal results.

        I don't need a straightener to do much..... just straighten my end a couple times a week..... this straightener works fine. It's just not anything impressive.

          It heats up fast and works quickly to smooth my hair frizz from the morning fog and humidity. The smoothness lasts all day.

            Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

            When I was a freshman in high school, I used my aunt's straightener (she is a hairstylist). My family and I had gone out to California to visit her and more family, but I forgot my straightener, so I used hers. I remember being in shock at how great it worked. When we got back to Houston, my mom bought me that same straightener. I am now 22 years old and have been using it ever since. My straightener isn't working too great anymore, but that's understandable. It's done such a fantastic job for so long. Now that I only shop cruelty free and vegan, I had to make sure it was cruelty free before buying it again. I honestly am not completely sure they are cruelty free, but PETA says so.. Not sure if they're truly a trustworthy site, but I'll trust them on this one, because I LOVE GHD.

              I love this flatiron. I had been using a comparable brand for years but it started burning and pulling my hair. This Ghd is perfect.
