Rated 1 out of 5 by Fitzy245 Disappointed
After reading reviews I was expecting an amazing product that was going to save me time and provide more manageable hair. This product fell well short of my expectations. Rather than saving me time, it has increased the time it takes to do my hair. There are no special features like temperature control. It's never hot enough. I need to straighten the same piece of hair several times in order to straighten and it does not eliminate frizz. The hot plates don't actually touch in the middle - there is a sizable gap - so only the very end can be used on the hair and only small sections can be straightened at a time. With previous straighteners I was able to create curls as well as straighten but this product leaves a straightening iron "kink" in my hair where I turn the straightener. And it makes a sound as I run the straightener down my hair that sounds like there is a lot of damage being done. The plates don't run smoothly down my hair. I would never recommend this product. It is ridiculously overpriced and there are much better products on the market with special features, multiple voltage for travel and are better value for money. Doesn't deliver what it promises.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amieb Sadly I'm dissapointed with this product
even with my old styler dying after 3 years of fabulous use, I find that my new styler just does not cut it, especially with the price that was paid. I love ghd, but I am some what frustrated with my new styler. Had I known what it was going to be like, I would have upgraded

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cassie25 This product is light in weight and easy to use
Unfortunately for me, I thought I was upgrading from the GHD IV to the GHD V Gold Classic Styler, but this was not the case. To be fair, this product is light and slimline but for me, does not straighten my hair as good as the GHD IV or leave me feeling like I am having a good day.

Seems weird to purchase a straightener for straight hair! It gives me that final smooth look - reduces wispiness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jojo03 Super easy to use
Super easy to use. Quick and effective. Is very versatile as can be used to straighten, curl or just de-frizz.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Silvie ghd V Gold Classic Styler
The ghd V Gold Classic Styler is truly a dream to use. It glides seamlessly through my hair without ripping any hairs out. When using my old straightener it could take up to 1 hour just to straighten my hair, but with the ghd Gold Classic Styler it just takes 15-20 minutes to completely straighten my very long hair! The attention to detail is phenomenal too! Overall, this is a great product and so far I have been very happy with its function!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Robby still testing product
I am not entirley happy with the GHD I have purchased concidering their reputation and cost. My hairdresser uses a GHD on my hair in his salon with amazing results.
I do not get anywhere near the same result as he does. I had my daughter who uses a GHD also to use my GHD...she agreed the result is not the same as her own GHD.
I have appointment with my hairdresser next week where I will be taking my GHD for him to use on my hair for his opinion as he only uses GHD in his salon. I think this would be an excellent way to test my GHD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RebJane A GHD is the way to go
I was hesitant in spending money on a hair straightener but I am certainly glad I did because doing my hair now is easy and it looks like it has been professionally done each time !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chloe12 I prefer the original GHD.
My orignal GHD was better than the GHD V Gold Classic. I have frizzy curly hair and the Original GHD straightened quicker and sleeker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaydo56 I love the product because It heats up quickly with a beep when it's ready, the swing cord avoids tangles, glides over my hair
I love my new GHD, I've never had one before and what a difference! It heats up quickly with a beep when it's ready, the swing cord avoids tangles, glides over my hair - I love it.
I was also so impressed by the ease of purchase online and speed in which it arrived.
Definitely will recommend......

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chrissies Smooth, sleek finish. Heat temperature not as high as expected.
Gives a sleek and smooth finish. Doesn't heat as high as I was expecting. Need to do a few swipes to get the desired effect. My sister's earlier model heats more than mine does.

I'm happy with my purchase and was surprised how well it straightened my hair. It's well worth the investment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fifidiab1 After using the GHD for a while it turned off more than once.
Not happy with this product because of the above reason. I don't believe I got my money's worth out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zozo Still the best available but...
I prefer my old GHD that I purchased in 2006. I have straight hair already & use the GHD to style the ends of my hair under. I feel this product doesn't get as hot, it's not as easy to get the result I want, it pulls out my hair more. I want to gift it to my mum who doesn't like to use it as much and try the GHD IV which my hair dresser thinks is better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chic36 My hair retains a sleek look for a few days.
The Ghd straighteners heat up very quickly,ensure a instant smooth look to my hair and improve the general overall look of my style. I am very happy that I purchased them and overall I think that they are a fair price.
I do however have an issue with them. From time to time they turn themselves off,I think there is a loose wire inside somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Legal A truly great product.
Great product as not only is it a hair straightener but also when you wish to have curly bouncy hair GHD accomplishes this making you feel like a model which in turn makes your feel good and ready to tackle anything throughout the day or night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Court88 Very happy with my purchase!
I replaced my old ghd (lasted for 5.5 years) with this model and am very happy with my purchase. It heats up quickly and only takes a few strokes to straighten each piece. In humid weather my hair holds up a bit better than it used to. The plastic model feels a bit cheaper than the old model, but other than that it's better overall.

I am very disappointed in the gold styler. It just does not work as well as my last ghd. I am wondering if there is something not right with it as it doesn't straighten my hair as well as my last which I am thinking of reposessing from the person I gave it to.... Very disappointed in this styler.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NMT01 Good product
I got the Gold V classic recently as my first and only straightener - a GHD, lasted 13 years! This new one doesn't heat up anywhere near the old one and is a bit flimsy and plastic looking. Lucky for me I now have a short hairstyle and I only need to use it to straighten the ends. I hope this one will survive a few years. The only reason I bought a new one was because I dropped and broke the old one, the plate came out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathy89 Not as great as I expected
I purchased my GHD after my trusty VS Sassoon straightener finally died. Given my old straightener was more than 5 years old, I expected to be blown away by the quality and performance of the new GHD. After using the GHD for nearly a month, I'm very unsatisfied with the performance of the straightener compared to my old one. It leaves my hair frizzy despite being careful to use thermal protection products and application of morrocan oil post-straightening to combat frizziness. I don't like that there is no option to change the temperature and it takes me much longer to achieve the same straight result. I don't have difficult hair, I have fairly straight, thin hair. I expected a lot more from this product than what I have experienced. Would not recommend to any of my friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by snooozyq not as good as my previous ghd
Does not leave my hair as sleek or straight as my previous ghd. The sales woman said that the gold would leave my hair shinier but I was happier with my previous ghd. I spend much longer trying to get my hair frizz free

This is my first pair of GHDs and I have to say, I am a convert. Never again will I use anyone else. They are expensive but are really, really worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mel72 Ghds have some great features
this is my first GHD. I have had plenty of cheap sets. i find the GHD doesn't drag down my hair like the others, they are quick to reach temp and i also like the sleep mode. I also found that my GHDs don't get hot, as in a have lost count of how many benches etc that i have accidently left burn marks on because the cheaper ones get hot on the outside.
throughly enjoying using my new GHDs and will totally recommend them to my family and friends!!
