Rated 5 out of 5 by Daba Great straightening iron for short hair
This is hands down the best straightner I've used. It heats up in a flash (beeps when turned on and then triple beeps when it's up to temperature -- which takes literally about 10 seconds). The temperature is relatively low (and cannot be adjusted), but it works wonderfully on my course. curly hair, and the lower the temperature, the less damage to the hair. It is light and stylish, and dual voltage so it is easy to travel with.
I must admit that I use quite a lot of hairspray which straightening, so for me the lower temperature is not a problem. It passes effortlessly through the sections and the results are wonderful. Note that it is mini in terms of the width of the plates but is full size in length, which is also a plus.
Cleaning is easy: turn off, let it cool down for 30 seconds or so (so it is still quite hot) and then clean with a wet towel. Thanks to the rounded edges no goo gets stuck in any crevices (a problem I've had with other straighteners). I cannot say anything about the lifespan since I have had it only a few weeks, but it comes with a reasonable guarantee.
I did my homework and this one came out as best out of the test -- and it has proven to be so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by arcticjazz I Should Have Had this Years Ago
This is the perfect flat iron for someone with short hair. I imagine ghd's bigger flat iron is great for longer hair. I bought this for personal use after I saw my hairdresser using it on me. It is lightweight and easy to maneuver. The way it is made makes it difficult to burn yourself, and what ever ghd has done with their thermal regulation makes the iron heat to just the right temperature for your hair.
The quality of this iron is in a league of its own. I have tried some of the more expensive irons and they don''t come close the the results I get with this iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susie123 Excellent styler
This is the first time I have bought ghd styler. Have never used one before. Absolutely brilliant. Bought the mini as I have short hair . Used to stick up everywhere. Ordinary stylers were useless! For me anyway! It takes me about 5 mins and my hair is a dream. Highly recommend this styler. GREAT.

These mini straighteners are excellent, my hair has a mind of its own, these straighteners get right to the roots and really straighten it. The auto cut off after 30 mins is a great feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melburnian Worth every cent
I held off buying a GHD for a while but got sick of my cheap no brand straightener that just didn't work properly. Regretting not buying a GHD earlier! It actually straightens my hair in one go, I don't have to go over it 20 times and spend an hour doing my hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slimjen Light in weight, but .....
This is my second pair of GHD styler that I have bought within the last year or two. My second purchase was the mini styler, to take with me on holiday. Whilst I am delighted with all the features and quality of this particular model, in particular, the weight not being heavy for travelling, I was a little disappointed in the overall length. I thought that with it being designed as a mini version of the normal size styler, then it would be shorter and easier to pack away in my luggage. This is not the case. On checking the product details, I did notice it did not depict the measurements as such, so only presumed the styler would be shorter, however, it is the same length as the normal styler. Just a little point I wished to make, but overall I am pleased with everything else.

I heard so many great things about GHD I just had to purchase the Gold Mini Styler. I have shortish, fine hair & find after blow drying, I need to use straighteners. I had NEVER been 100% happy with my previous mini's soo once I saved up, I ordered the GHD Mini Styler. Well...I was totally amazed when I used them for the first time!! Took only seconds to heat, love the bleep they give to tell you they are ready to use. I have never, ever had such brilliant root lift before, they are soo smooth to use, leaving your hair smooth too. They are just soo sleek and soo precise!! My hair looks great when Ive been to the hairdresser...now I can style my hair the same, as though I have just come from the hairdresser!!! I LOVE THEM!!! The best hair product I have EVER purchased. Thank You GHD!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eddieliz Great product
The mini straighteners are great for short hair. They get right to the root. He plates heat up quickly and overall they're excellent. I only gave this product a 4 star rating because of one tiny thing. The plug. It's styled very nicely, all curves and stuff but blow me if I can't pull the thing out of the socket easily! I haven't got big fingers but for some reason because of the design I can't grip the plug properly from any angle to pull it out with one hand. It's not square like most plugs to grip hold of therefore making it a difficult to pull out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicky3 This product is invaluable
This product is great value for money, easy to use and gentle on fine hair.
I would recommend this product to anyone with short hair. Once you have them you will never want to be without them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EllieB78 Excellent product, good quality.
This is my first purchase for heat styler and I am impressed. The mini styler is, as stated, ideal for my shortish hair.
It heats up very quickly.....excellent.
What I would like to see provided is a hook provided so that I can hang it up safely whilst styler cools down.

Great straightners however I'd recommend a redesign of the size of the handle for the minis to reduce it

Garbage product, had an original that was about 5 years old that actually heated up. New ones are useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nmath Good product, but less powerful than its big sister
Quality is excellent and very easy to use. I previously owned a larger size (plate size) ghd styler, and found this mini model to be significantly less powerful. Works well if you slide it quite slowly through the hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trevell14 Just perfect for short hair!
After using standard ghd' s for some years now, it's so much easier on my short hair with my new mini straighteners. Wish I'd bought them years ago.

After many big hints I purchased this product for my wife who has fairly short hair and it instantly curls. She uses this product to straighten her hair & compared with the previous product it is really good. No longer are we delayed in the morning because this product heats up instantly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dillie10 Excellent product--cannot be beaten
I have used a ghd hair styler before but because it was several years old I felt it was time to update it. I am absolutely delighted with my new gold mini styler, it glides through my thick difficult curly/frizzy hair with ease and the style holds very well. I would certainly recommend this product and I am very pleased to have bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by liz15 Great little straightener
Used other straighteners for years and needed a new one. Both my daughter and daughters in law only ever get ghds so I thought I'd treat myself. What a difference! No static and no damaged hair wish I'd bought years ago. As my hair is short I especially like the small size of them, no more burns to fingers and ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TTkojak Highly recommend. Love them!
This is my second purchase. First one 2005 lasted a long time. They're great. My hair is short, straight and thick but the mini, curls/flicks, in no time. Heats up fast and easy to handle. My daughter has the white platinum, (long wavy hair) and absolutely loves hers too. Very good investment although you may feel initial pay out is alot.

I needed a replacement for my old slim ghd straighteners, these are a good size, light weight, heat up quickly with a good length on the plug lead. Having short hair, I was a little disappointed that they were not as slim as my last ones.

I like the way it switches off after a certain time. It is light for travel, works incredibly quickly and is easy to use. The effect on hair is good.
