Rated 3 out of 5 by Dani30 The Eclipse is great for straightening, but not good at curling and flipping hair
I purchased the eclipse as an upgrade from my classic 1" ghd styler. However, after trying it for a few days, I returned it and exchanged it for another 1" classic styler, which I love just as much as my previous one.
I tried the eclipse because I was hoping it would be better for my hair, but in the end, the classic styler was the choice for me.
Although the eclipse did an excellent job at straightening my hair, it did a very poor job at curling and adding flips to my hair. The eclipse did straighten my hair a little faster than the classic styler and it did make my hair a little smoother and shinier. It also seemed to retain the heat better.
However, the classic styler was much better at adding curls and flips to my hair, which is essential for my hair style. I have VERY thick, coarse hair that is just below my jaw and I couldn't get the eclipse to hold any curls in my hair. The curls will stay in my hair all day long with the classic styler.
I also like the flatter, smaller barrel of the classic styler vs. the larger, rounder barrel of the eclipse. I also found that the eclipse pulled on my hair much more then the classic styler, which I thought was strange.
Overall, if you only want a straight style that is soft and shiny, the eclipse is probably the way to go. If you want to add some more curls and flips into your hair, then the classic styler is a much better choice.

I love these straighteners. I have tried several different brands before but will always prefer this brand. They are the only ones that will manage my thick wavy hair

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahm0916 Great flat iron
I won't say it's a new miracle or that it revolutionizes anything, but it's a really great product that does everything I would hope for the money. I would buy another one for sure. I love the thin cord. It feels much less stiff that a typical flat iron cord.

I'm so happy I decided to choose the eclipse. It heats up super quick and it leaves my hair smoother than my older straightener. It's definitely a great investment for your hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jacqui27 Love that it heats up so quickly!
My hair is extremely fine so I still had some few burned ends in some areas. But overall it is wonderful and I did not regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SueSue Good product
The styler is a good product but I'm still learning to use it effectively. I'm also waiting for my hair to grow longer so that I can use it to curl it, not just straighten the ends which I'm currently doing.
But it heats up really fast which is great as I'm always rushing in the morning and it doesn't damage my hair as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michey33 Fantastic, didn't think they could improve but they have.
These are fantastic, they are better than the previous pairs i had. I have very thick frizzy hair and previous GHD's although they straightened my hair it looked slightly greasy. The Eclipse don't, they make it look so soft and shinny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Misty1 Great new GHds
After 5 years with 3 people using my old straighteners they finally gave up the ghost, I purchased my new improved GHDs and I love them, only criticism I have is for the price I woukld expect to get a bag/case for them and something to put them on when hot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LillianaRose22 Great Features!
Flat Iron may be slightly given more credit that it deserves. For a product that is the price and name this one is, I don't think it straightens as quickly as it could, and I feel like it slightly damages my ends as I lightly run it through my hair. All in all, it is a wonderful straightener, but there's a lot of competition out there, and I hoped for better results.

I've never experienced a flat iron like this! I can now wear my hair down in the humidity and not have to worry. It heats up quick and makes your hair super silky and smooth within minutes. Wish I tried it sooner. It's an amazing product even at the price it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyKatCurls best straightener on the market
I have tried many straighteners, the CHI was a joke and did nothing for my hair. I have very long curly hair but its also thin. I don't like how damaging other straighteners are this one does not get nearly as hot as even my old GHD gold 1" but it does the job incredibly fast! It has immediate heat up _its ridiculous how fast it is!- I have not tried curing with it yet but hear good things from others. My personal wish list for this products improvement would be color options, i like pink :) Also if GHD ever sells a curling wand i would immediately buy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommy love my new straightener
I bought this straightener because I ahave been told GHD is the best. I have very very thick hair and its past my butt so I put this straightener to the test and I was satisfied with my final look it took time because I do have a lot of hair but no where near the time it would take for a straightener you would but at a retail store. It will be even better once I donate 15 inches of my hair... Its is pricey but if , ur looking for quilty u pay the price

Heats up fast and straightens my hair to pin straight at first use. Also doesnt catch or rip at my hair, which is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutiepierpd430 Great for curls!
My hair is very straight and fine. I have a difficult time finding anything that will curl my hair and stay for any length of time. The GHD Eclipse is great for so many different types of curls. The curls stay in all day and beyond. I do not use the Eclipse for straightening since my hair is stick straight but I do use the Eclipse to smooth and add a flip with small waves even when I do not curl my hair. The GHD Eclipse is an investment. This is the first GHD product I have owned so I cannot speak of the Eclipse's durability long term. I LOVE MY ECLIPSE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teri BEST FLAT IRON I HAVE EVER USED
I have very kinky coily hair, and it has always been a problem straightening and maintaining my straight hair. I started my natural hair journey a year ago, and have been trying different products on my hair. I am not very good with using a flat iron, and have not had very much success. I was very impressed with the GHD Eclipse, and how easy it was to use. The best flat iron I have ever used. Even after my workout, I expected my hair to revert back, but it held up very well...wow. I can truly say this is the BEST flat iron I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Viv09 Best flat iron ever!
I never thought I would switch brands from the popular flat iron I was using ... then along came this ghd eclipse. It surpassed my old favorite in every way. I'm a fan! Besides making your hair sleek and soft to the touch, it gets kudos for design. This flat iron leaves the competition behind. Pricey, but worth it!

At first I was skeptical that the ECLIPSE would not get hot enough for my hair but I was totally wrong. I love that it gets PERFECTLY hot enough and that it gets hot so quickly. I think that I will be doing my hair a great service by cutting back on the heat on my hair. I just LOVE IT!
