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
Summary: A quality product to create lovely hair styles with little fuss
