To achieve straight, sleek locks: Mist hair with GHD Heat Protect Spray (sold separately) and place a fine section of dry hair between the plates of your GHD Professional Styler. Ensure that the styler is as close to the root as possible before closing the plates. 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 seductive soft movement: Mist hair with ghd heat protect spray. Section the hair and lightly mist with a curl hold spray to add shine and hold when styling. Place a fine section of hair between the plates of your ghd Gold Styler vertically 1 inch away from the root. Gently close the styler with minimum tension. Turn the styler clockwise by 90 degrees. For a soft curl, pull the styler quickly through the hair away from the head in one 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 a wide-tooth comb.

To achieve stunning curls: Mist hair with GHD Heat Protect Spray (sold separately). Section the hair and lightly mist with a Curl Hold Spray (sold separately) to add shine and hold when styling. Place a fine section of hair between the plates of your GHD Professional Styler vertically one inch away from the root. Gently close the styler with minimum tension. Turn the styler clockwise by 90 degrees. For an intense stunning curl, continue to turn the styler by another 90 degrees as you glide from root to end; pull the styler very slowly away from the head in a continuous smooth movement. For a softer curl, pull the styler quickly through the hair away from the head in one 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 for more extreme curls, or with a wide-tooth comb for soft, loose waves.

      Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

      Don't get me wrong, this product works! Heats up fast (but only one setting) and my hair looks great afterwards. However, this thing is so darn expensive! I returned it because I couldn't justify the price at all. There's other flat irons out there that give me the exact same result and cost half the price. You're definitely paying a lot for the name.

      Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

      My hair is on the thick wavy side with a decent amount of bleach damage. So I was in search for a tool to help add shine back in as it tamed...I do like this flat iron a good deal. However, it doesn't add any luster to my hair and it borderline snags on it when I use it to curl. It's great quality but not great on my hair.

      Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

      this is my go to heat styler. I use it to straighten/curl my hair. I have shoulder length hair and with my GHD it takes me about 5-10 mins to style it because of its superb heat setting and versatility.

          I use it about 4-5 times a week. You'd think my hair was naturally straight with how great it works.

            Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

            I used to always use CHI but realized how harsh it was on my hair and how my hair always got snagged in the plates. Ever since I tried a GHD, I've been hooked! I started with the classic but then upgraded to the professional one and it's definitely my favorite!! I have long & very thick hair, this works great & takes no time!! So worth every penny & very long lasting, have had them for years & both work great still

            This flat iron heats up in seconds, doesn't snag my hair and saves me so much time styling every day! It creates really pretty waves and curls too! My hair is pretty thick and after I use this straightener it feels so silky and straighter than ever. Even in florida's humidity this flat iron keeps my hair straight, which always used to be an issue for me!

            Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

            First I apply a spritz of heat protectant. This straightener is so effective, that it allows for a single pass through! Every flat iron is of course damaging by nature, but this one I have found to be the most gentle and effective on my kinky curly locks on days I'm craving a straightened-sleek look.

            Comments about Ghd Gold Professional Styling Iron:

            I love my GHD straightener. I have been using gold ghd for about four years now. My previous gold ghd went missing last year and I thought I lost it. So I ordered the same exact one again. I ended up later finding my old one, and now I have two. It heats up super fast, and keeps my hair starlight and frizz free all day. It's lightweight great for when ur traveling. The only con I guess would be that I wish ghd had different temperature settings. Overall I'm very satisfied with the product

                The ghd classic 1" styler and ghd gold 1" styler are both perfect for quick, everyday styling and can create versatile styles from straight to wavy. The main point of difference is that gold has advanced ceramic technology for enhanced shine.

              A LOT of flat irons pull my hair when you get to the ends of your hair, freshly cut or not. Its like the hair gets caught between the plate and the iron. Does this iron pull on your hair?
