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.

Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

I bought this product because GHD is supposed to produce a longer lasting product than others. I usually prefer flatirons that are thinner and have more settings. This one is a little bulky but I am hoping it will last. Also as other reviewers noted, the plug is quite large... hard to plug in other devices to same outlet...

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

    I first purchased this iron in 2008 and it last 7 years. It worked beautifully on my naturally curly, color treated hair. Then, I purchased in 2016, used it once and it quit working. Ulta was amazing at exchanging the item so I tried it again. Not only did it snag my hair, but the iron did not close all the way. I really have to squeeze to get it to close properly. Further, I have do now do 3-4 passes on my hair to get it straight. I prefer GHD as it keeps my hair mostly frizz free, but am thinking about something else since it snags and requires multiple passes. There has definitely been a change since my first purchase in 2008, and it's not for the better. I did contact the manufacturer regarding the iron not closing all the way and snagging hair, but never heard back.

        Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

        I don't know how I've lived without this amazing tool. I don't like spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, but I like to look good. I have naturally straight hair, so I never thought I needed a flat iron until my hairdresser recommended and this is the brand he recommended so that I don't damage my hair by setting heat too high. This iron only has one setting , so it's fool proof.

        I've had this for 10 years and still works like day 1 of when I got it. I'll never purchase another one other than this. I think it'll last a few more years too.

              It straightens hair so well. I have the curliest of hair and this this thing takes with no more than three swipes. I love to use it as a curler, too. It can give nice curls, curls at your ends for a blowout look, or straighten. I would definitely recommend this.

                I have perm treated, thick, long, and extremely curly hair. I currently have the chi ultra but my hair still ends up frizzy after using it. Will this eliminate frizz and still leave my hair silky and straight? Also, is the temperature adjustable and what temperatures does it go to?

                  You can use it anywhere in the world and it will reach the optimal temperature of 365 degrees, however you still need an adapter/converter since the plug is different.
