      best hair straighteners i have ever used!

      GHD were first launched in 2001 and are very very trustworthy! almost everyone I know has a something from this make and love it! I have had these straighteners for at least 2 years and they are still working perfectly! They turn on so so quick, they go up to 210 degrees in just 60 seconds so you won't have to worry about not having time to straighten your hair, you could even have enough time for a cup of coffee too! they make your hair THIN and straight, not just straight but leave it thick, like a lot do, but they make it THIN THIN THIN which i love :) When i first bought these i had long hair (I've stupidly cut it short now) and i was amazed by how it simply glided down my hair and caused no nots what so ever! it makes my hair shiny and i have a good hair day everyday! The plate is a good size because it will work with any hair type, long, short, thin or thick hair! you get free lip glosses with them, which is a bonus, 'cos all girls love a bit of gloss :p they beep when you turn them on, and then beep twice when they are ready. they have a automatic turn off function so if they are on for more than a certain period of time they will turn off, so if you accidentally leave them on when you leave, you won't come home to a burnt down house haha! which i used to worry about a lot when i had my old straighteners if i turned them off or not, but now i don't have to worry :) I used to spend 2 hours to get my hair straight, because my hair is naturally curly, but now it will take me no more than fifteen minutes! :D You can do practically any hairstyle with these, straight, curly, wavy, whatever you fancy! To curl simply grab hold of your hair with the straighter and wrap your hair around it once and pull down, and BAM you have a nice curl :) You can look on YouTube for tutorials on how to do this :) So many of my friends have these and all of them love them, no one i know has had any problems with them. AND THEY'RE PINK! the wire, the plug, the plate, the straighteners themselves, everything is PINK! :D haha which makes them look good, as well as being fantastic! so glad i found some straighteners which actually work on my hair! GHD do hair products and i really recommend buying their heat protector spray, works wonders! The price i found online is £130 which is quite a bit but you get what you pay for, it is worth every penny! Oh another nice thing about these is that you don't get that nasty burning smell you get with cheaper straighteners when you do your hair! hope this helps! :D

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I will never use another hair styler again after using this one.

      I can not praise GHD enough! I am a very girly girl and so very into my hair and have been styling my hair for years. Although I have owned some fairly good hair straighteners in the past, non have ever measured up to my GHDs.
      First of all, I love how GHDs can effortlessly not just straighten hair, but curl, wave, whatever takes your mood really. A great feature of the "Kiss" styler is that it has an indicator light which beeps when they are hot enough to use and if they are left turned on but not in use for too long, they automatically turn themselves into standby mode and cool down.
      Since converting to GHD I have also found that my hair is not getting anywhere near as much heat damage as other stylers have in the past and I put this down to the fact that they get to a high enough temperature to do the job first time so that you don't have to keep going over and over again. This has left me with much healthier looking and feeling locks and saved me a lot of money on repairing hair treatments.
      Although they are a bit on the pricier side, they are definitely worth the investment because I have now had mine for three years with no problems, where as before, when I was using other brands I was having to replace them every six months or so.
      Basically, I love this styler! It does a brilliant job and the lovely colour is just the icing on the cake. I would recommend it to anybody.

      great HOT PINK GHD girly straightners, glamorous HOT

      I got my GHD straightners one year for christmas with an added bonus of 3 HOT PINK lipglosses, as a box gift set. I love my straigtners and have had them for 3 years now. I did have a fault with them when first got them one side wouldnt heat up, my boyfriend (who brought then for me) contacted them and they were replaced real quick with no fuss and easy replacement, plus polite emails back and forth promoting excellent constomer service. I must have been one of the unlucky ones to have a dodgy set but this was easily sorted out and the new ones replaced arrives within a week, and i was happy with the product. The new ones i recieved have been working fine for the last 3 years. I use them on a daily basis they are quick to heat up, so when in a rush you can make yourself look gorgeous even if you have little time, as they heat up great. There is a red flashing indicator light that bleeps when they are ready for use. I love the HOT PINK colour, as i do love my PINK and im very girly so these were very ME, i always feel great when using them. They are easy to hold, not too small and not too bulky, they have a smooth edge for use of different styles. The come complete with a dvd showing you how to do different styles including using them to curl your hair aswel as straightening. The lead is long enabling easy usage when stretched across the room depending where your mirror is. I wouldnt fault these straightners and i have used many before, these are by far the best ones i have ever had the pleasure of using, and will continue to use to style my hair :)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A must have item for every woman!

      I have been using hair straighteners four around 8 years now to help straighten or curl my naturally wavy hair. My first set were a really chunky Remington pair that had interchangeable plates so that you could alternate between straightening and crimping your hair, they did the job but it took a while and the effect never lasted any longer than a couple of hours. Over the next few years I would get new straighteners every year or so as the plates would start chipping, or become less effective or just generally stop working. Then GHDs were introduced to the world of hair styling and I wanted some, really really badly but I was still at school and felt that my weekend job wages just wouldn't stretch to the £100+ price tag so I waited and waited for a good few years and then almost three years ago while at the hair dressers I saw the Kiss Hot Pink GHDs on display and instantly fell in love! Luckily for me it was just a few weeks before Christmas and so when I got home I told my boyfriend what I wanted Santa to bring me that year and on Christmas day I unwrapped my beautiful new straighteners!

      ***A bit about GHD***

      GHD were first launched in 2001 with the release of their very first pair straightening iron, by 2003 they had produced and aired their first TV advert. In the years that followed GHD went from strength to strength and by 2006 they had become a global success. Their products now range from straighteners in a variety of shapes and sizes, hair brushes and styling products such as serums and hair sprays.


      ***The Straighteners***

      The GHDs were packaged in a fairly big rectangular black and pink box and inside was my new pride and joy along with a little box containing 3 different coloured lip glosses (always a bonus to receive free lip gloss). The straighteners are completely pink, the plates, the on/off button, the wire, the plug EVERYTHING is pink which is something I really love about them. They are mark 4 GHDs so the fourth generation of GHD hair straighteners to be released. They have standard sized plates so they aren't massively chunky or really tiny, just perfectly sized for most hair lengths and thickness. They heat up to around 210 degrees in around 60 seconds and they will make a little bleeping noise when they are ready to use and have a small red light next to the on/off switch that will also flash to indicate they are ready to use, just in case you didn't hear the bleeping. They will also automatically turn themselves off if they are left on and not used for too long which gives me great peace of mind on those days when I'm in a rush and leave the house wondering whether or not I remembered to turn them off (although obviously it is safer if you actually do turn them off).

      ***My experience***

      The first time I used my straighteners I was amazed by how smoothly they glided along the length of my hair (it's quite long) creating perfectly straight hair in seconds. The straighteners do leave hair feeling very hot so I would advise using a brush or comb if you need to touch the segment that has just been straigthened although the hair does cool down very quickly in just a few seconds. After straightening, my hair is left felling beautifully soft and smooth and I was really impressed to see that the effects of the straighteners last from morning till night, obviously this is providing my hair doesn't become wet in the mean time. I also found that my GHDs can create gorgeous curls too! All you need to do is take a small section of hair and then twist it around the plates of the hair straighteners, hold or a few seconds and release or using a section of hair pull the straighteners along the length of the hair while holding them slightly twisted at around 180 degree angle. I always use quite a bit of hair spray when curling my hair as the effects don't last as long as they do when hair is straightened but does still last really well and even better with a bit of spray. I don't feel that the straighteners dry out my hair can there is no visible damage to my hair from exposing it to such high temperatures. I have had my GHDs for two and a half years now (three years at Christmas) and can honestly say that they are still in perfect working order and I have never experienced any problems with them.

      ***My Verdict***

      These are by far the best hair straighteners that I have ever owned and used. The £130 price tag is high but it is understandably so as they are such great quality. GHDs are available from most hair salons and also online on their official website and on Amazon too. I use my GHDs on a daily basis, sometimes even more than once a day if I want to change my hair style and they work as well today as they did on the first day I used them, in fact looking at the ceramic plates on my Straighteners now, there is absolutely no way that you could tell they had ever been used, the condition is that good. I would without a doubt recommend them to a friend and if and when my current GHDs need replacing I will definitely be purchasing another set of GHDs!

      ***But Beware***

      Just a quick warning, there are fake GHDs being sold on sites such as Ebay so if your are looking to get some GHDs for a bargain price, be careful. My friend bought some fake ones without realising and they turned out to be a bit of a fire hazard as they were of such poor quality. If the price sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

        Well worth buying for any hair type one word amazing!

        I had these bought as a gift for christmas and I am very impressed with them! I cannot live without my ghds and i adore them especially as they are my favourite colour too! Hot pink! They are the best straighteners that i have ever had and i have tested out many! My hair is naturally thick and curly, so I was having trouble keeping my hair straight. But since using these ghds I found that my hair straightens really good! I love these ghds so if your like me and have difficulty having sleek straight hair then I recommend you buying these as they do the job they are supposed to do! I also like these straighteners because of the shape of the barrel top then it means that not only do you have to have straight hair, but there are many different styles you can try out. Such as curling the hair by twisting the straighteners and also you can flick the ends very easy without difficulty! :)

        One to be recommended

        Wicked colour :) think they look fab i love mine so much, you can buy them from you local hairdressers that stock them or on-line for a cheaper price. They can also come with a few accessories if you get them from the right place. When I ordered mine on-line they came with a special case for them, some eye make up (which wasn't the best quality to be perfectly honest, but oh well it was only a free bee after all) and an instruction dvd which i have never bothered to watch.

        I also have a pair of black ghd with special tilting plates- great for curls but id say these are just as good at doing the job, so there great for curly or straight hair. A few of my friends have purchased other novelty colour versions of ghd's and i've always found them to be a bit sub standard but these are great.

        Overall I'm really pleased with mine ghd's are always a good investment in my view they are undoubtedly the best straightens on the market and these pink ones cost me around £120 so only around £20 more than the standard black ones and i got a few accessories with them so im pleased.

          -

          The hot pink GHDS i am reviewing are the limited edition cancer reaserch ones from 2008.

          I have very wild hair its not surly and not straight somewhere between the middle and i find it a nightmare to control it. I used some cheaper straightners that did work but i had to go over the same section of hair 4 times for it to look even a little straight.My partner got fed up of waiting for me to get ready so surprised me with a pair of hot pink GHDS for my Christmas present i was over the moon.

          With my straightners came 2 hair clips for sectioning hair and a heat protection mat. All 3 came in a lovely round presentation box in bright pink the same as the straightners themselves. Also came a instructional DVD showing me how to create different styles but to be honest i looked at this once and then never used it again.

          I decided to use them straight away to make sure i looked good for the Christmas photos and i was not disappointed. There is a simple on off button on the inside of one of the plates. They took around 60 seconds to heat up and once they were hot enough they bleep so you know they are ready to use. On average they heat up to 180c so very hot and this is why they work so well.i only need to go over 1 section of hair once and its straight taking the time I do my hair from 30 minutes to around 10.

          The only problem I have came across is 3 years in the wire has started to be a little temperamental and sometimes only works if it sits in a certain position. My partner then did something in the plug sorry to sound dumb but i have no idea what but they were fixed from then on i had no more problems

          It has a safety feature so if left untouched for 30 minutes they turn off personally i think this would be need a little earlier.They cost around £130 but for me this is great value. I have had mine 3 years this Christmas and with just one problem they have lasted well and I'm hoping they will last a while longer. I would recommend these straightners to anyone looking for a decent pair.

          Good Hair Day All Day

          Ghd straightners are the best hair tool on the market today.
          Sure they cost a fortune but are worth every penny.
          Ghd straightners come in all different grades and colours.
          The kiss straightners are hot pink all over with the ghd badges on both side of the straightners at the joins.
          The cable is really long and also pink as the plug should be too, if your buying a set of ghds please make sure there is a hologram tag on the cable near the plug, this with have your serial number on it witch you can register with ghd for your guarantee.
          These kiss ghd are limited editions and are a mark 4 straightner.
          Mark 4 means version 4 ghds, these have all the digital technology in them as the old stylers did not have.
          From the moment the styler is switched on they heat up super fast to 210 degrees very hot.
          If you leave the ghd switched on unattended the ghd styler turns its self off automatically after 30 minutes.
          Kiss ghd set come in a fold out box with a set of lip glosses, instructions, a dvd and the straightners.
          This set cost £110 from salon services a good few years ago yet they are still going strong.
          I have never had any problems with my kiss straightners.
          My hair is always perfectly straight and lasts all day.
          Ghd stylers also create curls and flicks , i have not tried them before but the dvd shows how this can be achieved.

          I recommend ghd straightners, go on treat yourselves have a good hair day everyday.

            Worth all the money!

            I have had previous hair straightener that have made my hair straight but left it a little static however after purchasing Ghds I no longer have this problem. My hair is left feeling smoother than before. I also found that my hair stayed straighter for longer and even when I curled it with them the curls lasted longer.
            The lip glosses were a nice little gift with the Ghds but I would have preferred a matching travel hairdryer that you can get with some of the other Ghds or a travel mat.
            The colours of them are so bright and they really match my personality. But I have found the colour near the plates has began to fade slightly, although not so it is too noticeable.
            The standard black Ghds straighten my hair more easily compared to my pink ones. I only found this out when borrowing some of my friends Ghds, perhaps this is because of the pink colouring on the plates?
            These are still the best hair straighteners I have ever owned despite some minor problems but I think Ghd will eventually iron out any kinks with their products. They are worth the money.

            A quality product to create lovely hair styles with little fuss

            GHD is a British company based in Yorkshire, It was set up back in 2001 by Martin Penny and his friend Robert Powls. Robert had been sent a pair of straightners from a south korean inventor, they were the first pair of straightners using ceramic technology which had never been seen before. Being a ex hairdresser Robert had experience within the industry and he automatically knew that they were on to a winner, he suggested that they buy the rights to the product and which they did and they named it the Good Hair Day (GHD) company.
            Within a short period of time and with no advertising this product was being endorsed by celebrities, salons and hair stylists across the country, the quality of the product was selling itself.
            GHD hair straightners are now one of the most sought after straightners on the market, even with their high end price ticket and can now be found in 15 countries across the globe.

            Now the GHD Kiss Hot Pink IV limited edition hair stylers are Salon-approved straightners,They offer versatility in creating the perfect hair style, whether you want to create tight curls, flicks, waves or the perfect straight sleek look. Whether your hair length be short, medium or long the GHDs can help create a style perfect for you.
            These GHDs are also brilliant for naturally curly hair, that subjecting your hair to chemical straightening is a thing of the past that with the GHDs you can achieve a straight look too.

            Now before I start all GHD straightners have a hologram which is located on the inside alongside the on/off switch which can assure that you have purchased a genuine pair of GHD straightners as unfortunately there are a lot of fakes out there.

            The straightners have 2.5cm/1 inch ceramic plates which conduct heat very quickly and retain it effectively too, that when using the straightners pressure is distributed evenly across the hair creating a flawless style.
            The straightners also have a new rounder barrel design, this design makes the straightners perfect for achieving those perfect curls, waves or flicks as well as the perfect straight hair too..

            When you turn these straightners on the power indicator lights up along with a audiable beep, they then start to heat up and once they reach the optimum temperature of approx 180degrees they then give another audiable beep to alert you that they are now ready to be used.

            other features the straightners include are:

            -Universal Voltage - this means you will get optimum performance from your straightners no matter where you are in the world

            -Swivel cord attachment which helps prevent the cord becoming twisted during use, the cord also has a fair length to it which makes manouverabillity far easier.

            Sleep Mode- This safety feture means that if you leave your GHDs unattended for 30 minutes they will automatically turn themselves off, you could say a feature for peace of mind if you ever get worried if you may have accidently left them on.

            The straightners come in a rectangular box, black and fuscia pink in colour with the word kiss on the front, when you open the box you are presented with the striking pair of bright fuscia pink straightners and to the side of the straightners a small black and pink box housing a collection of three lip glosses with a mirror on the inside of the lid, inside are three gorgeous pink shades of lipgloss: Dare, Dazzle and Demure to suit every ocassion.

            also enclosed within the box is:
            -a instruction booklet of how to use the straightners

            -a product guide which contains a list of all the other products available by the GHD company

            -and a How to DVD which gives the user a comprehensive guide of how to develop stunning styles simply and with no fuss, that by demonstrating on this DVD you should be able to style your hair like a professional.

            Now this is my second pair of GHDs, I had used other branded ones in the past but they just didnt match up to that salon finish I was experiencing every time I went to get my hair done at my local salon, they just didnt match up to the quality and performance the GHDs delivered each time so on one trip to the hair salon I decided to buy myself a pair
            Now I purchased these hair straightners approx 6 months ago ( my others were really on their last legs) so on a trip to my hair salon I noticed being displayed on the shelf behind the counter were these very eye catching, bright, sexy looking Fuschia pink GHDs
            Now being a total girlie girl and absolutely loving the colour pink I really couldnt resist these straightners.

            Although the straightners are very expensive with a retail price of between £119.00 - £135.00 dependng on where you purchase them I really do believe that they are worth every penny, they are one of those products available on the market that actually lives up to its name and delivers great results, builifully straight or styled hair with a healthy shine no matter your hair type.

            I love how the ceramic plates heat up so quickly, Being a mum of a three year old and working from home Im one of those people always rushing around with little time so being able to switch them on and in less than 60 seconds they are at the optimum temperature is great for me.

            I personally have very long hair, past the midway point of my spine which has a natural curl to it and I will openly admit that I am one of those girls who hates what they have got, I absolutely hate my hair being curly or even wavy. My hair has to be straight.. so a pair of straightners that can deliver perfectly sleek, straight hair with just one use of the straightners per section of hair is a dream and these certainly deliver.

            A real must have for the girlie girls out there who want perfect hair.
            GHD straightners really do stand out from the rest and I really could not imagine going back to another branded pair again.
            I really could not live without my GHDs

            Now I do have one little moan about them.. I wish that they came with a protective matt or wrap like other straightners on the market do as I have to leave them to cool down completely before I can put them away but its not a major issue.

            A quality product to create lovely hair

              I love my pink GHD straighteners. The are better than my old straightners. They get really hot but dont singe the hair or smoke when using them. They are stylish in the pink (everyone has black straightners). The thing I really like about them is how well they straighten my hair, I have really really naturally curly hair and have spent my entire adult life trying to find a way of straightening my hair that doesnt take hours and hours. These GHD's straighten immediately. There are only a few little stubborn curls which I need to go over again. These straighteners are great value as they last for years and if they do break down you just send them to GHD who will fix them for you (obviously they charge you if they are outof the garauntee). All in all I would definately buy them again and am thinking of buying a set for my daughter. Would definately recommend them.

                brilliant for any hair type and style

                I had heard so many good things about these so I decided to put them on my xmas list and was SO happy when I unwrapped them!
                I wanted these rather then the original ones because some of the money you paid for them went to cancer research. I also wanted these because they are bright pink, like really bright pink!

                I know that these were £135 when I was brought them and I think £20 or £25 went to cancer research. You can probably get them a bit cheaper now so I would suggest looking around but make sure you get them from somewhere thats well known or has a good reputation because you dont want to be paying £100-£135 for a cheap knock off!

                I know the price is a bit steep for straighteners but these tackle even the curliest and frizziest hair in a quater of the time it would take to use cheap ones and they would make it look smoother!
                My straighteners came in a pink box with a DVD about tips on styling using the GHD's and two pink GHD slide clips but I know there are now different variations.

                A few things I like about this styler are the long cord, so no more hassle if you have an awkward plug socket! You never get that horrible burning smell during straightening, they heat up in about 30 seconds and beep when they are ready as a reminder but my favourite of all is the safety feature. These straighteners will turn themselves off after 30 minutes (if you need them longer all you do is flick the switch off and on again). This is brilliant if you are a real worrier like me. Im sure you can picture it, your late for something so you quickly use them and run out the door, get to where your going and think... crap! Did i turn them off or not?! You will never have to worry about this again as long as you have left them somewhere safe they will automatically shut off and cool down as usual.

                These straighteners are also brilliant for curling so you dont have to take both starighteners and curlers if your going away somewhere. Its really easy, all you do it twist the straighteners as you pull them down the hair. The reason they work so good is because they have a rounded edge. They also dont pull or tug on your hair and i also noticed much less breakage than with cheap straighteners. The results are silky smooth hair with no flyaway strands!

                Over all I would recommend these to anyone who likes to vary their hairstyle and wants a good investment. Ive had mine for about 4 years now and not a single problem.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Well worth the money and becomes part of your daily routine

                I have previously owned about 5-6 different straightners, all costing below £25 each, and I can tell you, I would have been better off not spending the money at all. My hair was staight-ish after using the cheap sets, and even that didnt last very long, as the plates always seemed to chip and make my hair even more dry and brittle. Then along came GHD's new Kiss Hot Pink IV Hair Straightner, and the time I spent on my hair was reduced by about half an hour, as they work in half the time, but still do a better job. With these, I can ensure my hair will stay straight and sleek, and wont go back to a frizzy mess within minutes. The only downside I would say about this miracle product is the price, which is a well rewarded investment, but for those who have straighish hair naturally, or who dont style their hair religiously, I would consider thinking about it more, as you might not get your moneys worth. I know GHD do a range of straighteners for different types of hair, but the hot pink colour is another think that makes me love them even more - my favourite colour. One other thing that makes them worht the money is the different features the straighteners do, such as switching off after so long of not using them (good if you forget to switch them off like me) - and the DVD for those who also wish to learn how to do different styles like wavey and curly with your GHDs. For the price you pay for the GHDs, I would recommend getting them off the official website, as I have known people buying fake ones, not knowing they were getting ripped off, and I actually payed £110 - 20 for mine, where £10 went to a breast cancer charity, so I didnt mind paying a bit extra. There is only one heat setting on the straightners, and when they have heated up, it will bleep to let you know, as well as the LCD light flashing when it is ready to use. When straightening your hair, the outside of the plates can get hot, which means you have to hold close to the end when straightening, but it is easy to do. One downside is that there isnt a heat proof part on the end to hold to.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Worth it if you can afford them!

                  I have previously owned cheaper hair straighteners which "did the job". To be honest my previous pair only cost me around £7! However, they did pull at my hair and it seemed to take forever to straighten my hair.... but I didnt know any different!

                  AND THEN CAME......

                  **** GHD KISS HOT PINK IV HAIR STRAIGHTENER!****

                  One day browsing Amazon I noticed these hair straighteners..... Yes in my favourite colour.... HOT PINK!

                  Oh and I just had to have them!

                  Ok at around £100 they are NOT CHEAP! But I had heard so much from my friends with their poker straight hair that GHDs were the only way to go!

                  Well, there was no way I was going to be left out was there?

                  So, I ordered them and within a few days they arrived.....

                  *PACKAGING*
                  These GHDs come in an extremely tough and expensive looking cardboard box which can be used to keep the straighteners in. The items inside were packaged well too.

                  *CONTENTS*
                  Together with the straightners came a lip gloss set with three lovely coloured lip glosses.... one pink, one reddish colour and a neutral one, inside there is a mirror for easy application. There is also an instruction booklet.

                  *OK LETS GO*
                  On plugging the straightners in for the first time it took literally a few seconds for the bleeping sound to inform me the straighteners were ready for use. There is an on off switch on the actual straighteners too. They are also light weight to hold. With the extra long cord and swivel end I could easily reach my mirror to see what I was doing too.....

                  I took the first section of hair and ran down the straighteners......... WOW....... Quickly and comfortably my hair was poker straight!

                  There was no need to re-do it and there was no pulling of my hair either.

                  To do my whole head of hair it took me literally fifteen minutes.

                  *TIPS*
                  1. These straighteners are extremely hot so always use a protector on your hair!
                  2. Do it well out of reach of little fingers too.... ouch dont want any nasty accidents
                  3. Cool off the straighteners somewhere safe!
                  4. Do not wrap the cord around the straighteners either or it could damage them.
                  5. Wipe clean when cool occasionally to prevent product build-up

                  *VERDICT*
                  MY HAIR STAYED STRAIGHT ALL NIGHT!........... BRILLIANT FOR 15 MINUTES EFFORT!

                    A fantastic product I will never buy any other hair straightner again

                    I had these GHD hair straighters for my birthday in September, they came as a nice gift box set including a lip gloss set, instructional DVDs and instruction booklets.

                    I previously didn't really know what all the fuss was about as my older hair straighter (not GHD) were fine and straightened my hair pretty well.

                    I now know what the fuss was about. It takes me half the time to straighten my hair, they glide smoothly through my hair and I seem to have a much better shiny straight frizz free results. There is no singing smell coming from my hair either which I had with my previous straigtners.

                    Since using these I would never use any other straighter on my hair.

                    The lip gloss which comes in this set is of very good quality and long lasting, the three colours are very nice shades of pink too with added sparkle in one of them. They all come in a small little case with a mirror, perfect for my handbag.

                    Not only do I straighten my hair with them, but I also curl it too. It took a little getting used to and some very funny outcomes before I got it right, however the instructional DVD which also comes with the gift set gives you step by step guidance for both straightening and curling which are very easy to follow and understand.

                    There is a safety function fitted within the straighter which shuts them down after half an hour of non use, which is ideal for me as I am one of those people who have the horrible thought after being out for 10 mins of thinking, oh no did I turn off my straigtners?

                    It also stated on my pack that £10 from the sale of these particular models would be donated to the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer!

                    My mother informed me they cost £130, which is very expensive for hair straighter, however when my hair is styled using these I feel like a million dollars, they are also very well made and will hopefully last me a good few years, so I would say they are a good investment!

                    One thing I will add though is beware of fakes! The first pair I received were in fact fake; I only found this out when I tried to register them on the GHD website. Although they looked the same and seemed to work just as well, I believe they may be dangerous and the person, who bought them for me, was unable to return them for a refund, therefore left out of pocket.
                    By researching on the GHD website I have realised that there are many fakes out there so beware!

                    I am unsure if this edition is still available, however the model IV is the same as many still on the market.
