Main Features

When you want to straighten your hair, start with a few mists of GHD thermal protector. Starting close to the roots, the GHD Classic 1-inch iron will glide through your hair effortlessly in a singular smooth motion. When you want to add a little curl, all it takes is a few small turns as you glide the plates over your hair.

Since we are all human and therefore prone to error, we’ve all had at least one experience of leaving our hair tools on. Luckily, the GHD comes equipped with a sleep mode that turns the heat off after 30 minutes of non-use.

Additionally when you need to style and go, the protective casing makes it possible to pack the iron away as soon as you are done. It also comes with universal voltage, which means you don’t need a transformer and can plug it in wherever you go. All of this combined with its sleek design; make it the perfect travelling companion for those who are on the go a lot.

The Good and the Bad

Simplicity: This flat iron works as advertised and is very simple. Complete with an instruction manual as well as a DVD with demonstrations for use, you can be assured you will know what to do. There is no risk of being without style and shine so long as you have this in your bag or bathroom.

Compact: The small and lightweight design make this a perfect tool for travel

Fakes: Because of its simplicity and popularity, there are many fakes on the market to be wary of. Since GHD has found its place among all the iconic brands, people have developed a number of fakes to cash in on its success.

With fakes, you will not get the same quality or experiences so there are a few things to look out for to make sure you get the real deal.

The real GHD irons are marked “made in the P.R.C or Korea”; fakes are marked as “Made in China”

  • The fakes are made with flat-headed screws rather than domed ones
  • The real item will have a DVD with a number code on the back whereas fakes contain a “DVD R”
  • The real device comes with two booklets
  • GHD uses matte boxes made from thick and strong quality material; the fakes are in shiny boxes and can often have misspelled words
  • The real iron has one hole on the cord where it meets the iron’s body as opposed to either none or three holes like a fake.
