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:

      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.

        BUYING AGAIN

        By Best

        from Westchester, NY

        Comments about Ghd Classic 1'' Styling Iron:

        I had this hair straightener for at least 8 years. It finally just gave up on me. Love that it's easy on and off— works great with my hair (long, semi thick) and has auto-sleep after 1/2 hour. I've been shopping around for others but I'm scared it wont work as good as this one.

        Buying this again

        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.

              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 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?
