GHD revolutionised at-home hair care with their hair straightening iron – originally purchased by the founders from a South Korean inventor – that gave women the chance to get salon-worthy straight tresses in their bedrooms at home.
Since then, GHD has continued to wow with its new hair straightener releases, and each GHD hair straightener product promises to be even quicker, easier to use and better for the hair than the one before. We’ve rounded up the best GHD straighteners you can buy online in 2019.
GHD’s first revolutionary hair straightener, the GHD Original IV Styler, was the first hair straightener to introduce ceramic heat technology to create sleek and smooth styles and ensure the heat remains consistent as you move the styler from root to tips.
The Original IV uses floating plates and a rounded barrel to style hair easily, and can create curls or waves as well as straight styles.
Another signature feature of GHD hair straighteners is that they go up to a maximum temperature of 185°C, which the brand believes is the optimal temperature to create styles that stay in place but won’t damage hair.
GHD straighteners also have an automatic shut down feature to ensure that you don’t cause any accidents if you leave them on and forget about them (they go into automatic sleep mode if not used for 30 minutes). Most come with a two or three-year warranty as well.
Over the years, GHD has continued to innovate when it comes to straighteners: the GHD Platinum + Styler made history when it launched in 2018 as the world’s first ‘smart’ hair straightener, which adjusts its temperature depending on the thickness of your hair.
This not only cuts styling time down significantly but leads to better-conditioned, healthier hair.
In 2019, GHD launched its hair straightening brush, the GHD Glide, which heats up to 185°C, and is designed to smooth frizzy ‘second-day’ hair out and give a salon-quality blowout with a basic brush-through. It's so popular that it's currently sold out online.
The other big GHD launch of 2019 is the GHD Oracle, the curling iron that looks like a straightener and promises to make curling hair simpler than ever (you clamp hair into it, turn it 90 degrees and pull down to create curls) – the Oracle is exclusively available to purchase in RUSH salons.
Let's just say that customers have been blown away by the results.
1. Best all rounder GHD straightener
- GHD Platinum + Black styler, £175 at GHD – buy here
The latest GHD straightener took five years to develop and features groundbreaking 'smart' predictive technology that controls heat based on the thickness of your hair, the section of hair you're straightening and your styling speed, changing the power to optimise your styling needs.
The Platinum + contains infinity sensors that monitor heat 250 times a second, to ensure the straightener maintains its safe temperature of 185°C.
Not only does the Platinum + leave hair styled to perfection, but the brand asserts that it also makes hair healthier, shinier and stronger – plus you'll have more time to enjoy your gorgeous locks since it only takes 20 seconds for the Platinum + to heat up.
Added bonus? This hair straightener comes with a three-year warranty.
2. Best GHD straightener under £100
- GHD IV Original Styler, £87.20 at GHD (was £109) – buy here
You can't go wrong with an original, and customers love that you can bag this amazing styling tool for under £100.
The general consensus with the OG GHD straightener is that it has great features and does the job perfectly.
It features floating ceramic plates that glide easily through the hair and a rounded barrel for days when you want to make waves, as well as ticking the box for safety features.
It automatically shuts down after 30 minutes of non-use and, thanks to a professional-length, 2.7m cable, it comes with a two-year guarantee.
3. Best GHD straightener for thick hair
- GHD Max Styler, £135 at GHD – buy here
The GHD Max styler has all of the benefits of the Original IV, and then some.
The extra-wide 2-inch styling plates make it a favourite with customers who have thick, coarse and long hair.
One fan raves, 'I have very thick, frizzy, almost Afro-like hair and these worked amazing.'
A wider plate means I can do bigger sections, so it helps me finish my hair quicker rather than my usual 1.5-2 hours.'
