Rated 5 out of 5 by mtgirl Best ever
I bought this flat iron on cyber monday when it was 25% off and am so glad I did. To my surprise it came in the mail just a couple days later. I have very wavy hair that is coarse and hard to straighten. With a typical flat iron I would have to go over the same piece of hair atleast 4 or 5 times for it to look straight. First off, this flat iron heats up in like 20 seconds, which is awesome for when your always running a little late like me. Second, it doesn't have temperature settings, which I like because I always would crank mine up to 400, the heat is always consistent and is perfect temperature. Third, since my hair is so wavy and ends pretty much where my nipples are, the 2" plates are a lifesaver, and time-saver. Normally it would take me about 30-45 minutes to flat iron my hair having to go over the same pieces of hair again and again. With the ghd flat iron it now takes only 10-20 minutes to get straight hair, I only have to over strands of hair 1 or 2 times now. It also makes my hair super shiny and smooth. It's a little tricky to style my bangs with the 2" plate but so far I love my purchase and am very glad I took a chance and splurged on my first professional flat iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julava Quick to heat up
I love how fast the iron heats up. It definitely works better than other flat irons I have used but I think I am still looking for a miracle product for my coarse frizzy hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hello123 Nice product with a few drawbacks
I wanted to try a styler with wider plates than I usually use so I could straighten my hair quickly and not have it frizzy. It does work quickly and reduces frizziness. Unfortunately, the wider plates make it a lot less versatile. Its's impossible to style your hair any way except stick straight. I read that you could do big curls or waves with this styler and you can't really.
Also, the first day I used it, one of the little round ghd signs on the side fell off. It wasn't a performance issue so I didn't send it back, it just made me mad that I had spent so much money on this and it was already broken.
So unless you only want to do straight hair and then use a curling iron for any other styling, don't go for the wider plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RebeccaInIowa The best flat iron I've owned
I got this when I was visiting Australia and my own flat iron didn't work with the outlets. The hotel got it from an onsite hair salon. It was more expensive than other flat irons I've owned, but it is also by far the best! It heats up and is ready to use in less than 30 seconds. It can be used internationally (just used it in Denmark, and I use it all the time in the U.S.). The plates are kind on my hair. The wide plate allows me to do not only smoothing and straightening of my naturally wavy hair, but it also allows me to create smooth waves and big curls. Definitely recommend it to anyone who wants their hair to look great, and to not be fried by tools that are not built as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamiesue Best Straightener Ever!!
This is the best straightener I have ever had. I have extremely thick curly hair and it straightens my hair with one slow swipe. I am amazed how great it works on my thick curly hair! The 2 inch iron takes even less time! There is no levels to adjust but that seems to work fine as it is very hot.

If you care about the health of your hair, you will spend the little extra to make sure it stays as healthy as possible. This is a great iron. No pulling, tugging or fraying. Leaves my hair with more shine too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMS123 Very impressed...
I was very hesitant on purchasing this product because of the cost. I ended up receiving this as a gift and have been extremely impressed with it's performance. I have somewhat frizzy, wavy hair that is thin, but I have a lot of it. Many of the tools I have used in the past have really damaged my hair, but this iron leaves my hair quite silky and shiny. Well worth it...

I used to have this product in the UK which was very strong and hot enough for my thick hair, but the Nirth America version doesn't seem to get as hot and leaves my hair frizzy.

So happy to have found your company. I have the Eclipse flat iron, your perfectly perfect air dyer, the 2" Gold Professional max styler, and every brush and size you sell. I have watched your videos many times…..they are really fun and although I keep trying to copy them, I'm not a stylist, therefore a bit difficult to do. My hair is shoulder length, many shades of blond with lowlights, wavy when it's humid, fine but a lot of it.
I brought all my equipment to my salon last Friday and the very talented stylists watched all your videos and can't wait to purchase your products.
Kudos to your outstanding company and ingenuity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nora15 Great for thick hair
ghd Gold Professional 2" Flat iron is a great tool, easy to use and wonderful for my thick coarse hair. It only takes a few swipes to make my hair look just right. It heats up quickly, is ergonomically well designed and screams quality through and through. Highly recommended.

Although it was a pricey purchase, it's worth it. I can tell already that this product is going to last a long time and prove itself.

I recently started using the ghd gold 2" styler and my thick head of wavy, frizzy, fine hair has been transformed. My old Chi stylers (the good ones that have lasted for years and years) never quite made my hair look this shiny and well-styled. It is extraordinary. My husband notices and gives me compliments! Ordering from the ghd site has been an excellent experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alexandra17 Not worth the hype or the money
When I bought this product I expected high expectations but it did not deliver especially for the price. It snagged my hair the plates shifter so I could not apply enough pressure to the hair in order to flatten. There's no temperature gauge so it sets it's own temperature, it doesn't get hot enough to straighten it. The only part I like was the exterior. Overall I would not recommend at all the money you spend for this I would expect perfection and it is far from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuLuRu Will never buy another straightener again!
This is the best hair tool I have ever purchased! Love it! It has cut my prep time to a fraction of what it used to be with better results than what I was getting with any previous straightener. Amazing product - love it love it love it! Worth every penny (and then some!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annaleise Excellent, excellent, excellent....
This is quite possibly the best investment I've ever made. I hesitated because of the price, but I couldn't be happier. I live in a humid climate which turns my slightly wavy, long hair into a frizzy mess. I have literally received dozens of compliments that my hair "looks beautiful" in the few weeks I have been using this 2" flat iron. My hair is now perfectly smooth and straight without using any product. I'm saving up to buy the 1" iron next so I can curl my hair as well. Thanks GHD!

I have very thick, long, curly hair. One pass with the GHD flat iron and my curls are gone. I like the 2 inch plates. I can do my hair in half the time. This flat iron does not fry my hair like the cheaper brands of flat irons out there. I would highly recommend this flat iron. It is expensive but you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Afan My Second -- and Favorite!
I purchased a ghd flatiron 3 years ago; it was fabulous -- but I left it in a hotel room. When I went online and read about this particular one, I knew it would be perfect for my thick, curly hair -- just like the last one, but even improved! It arrived yesterday morning and I used it in the afternoon; my hair feels great today, still. Love the way the cable rotates for easy use, and the fact that it's ready to go in 15 seconds. A terrific product (and I plan to hold on to this one)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mlroun Smooth, no hair pulling..
This is my second GHD. Love it!! New friends have no idea that my hair is not naturally straight. Simple to use, glides so easily through my hair. It is set at a perfect temperature for all hair types.
My only negative is the iron cover. It doesn't lock in place so when you grasp your iron, the cover falls off. I would love a cover that stayed in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaTrisha I finally found it
Been using different kinds of flat iron. I say hands down on this one. I have long curly coarse hair long means the tips touches my hips. It takes me 1 hr and 30 minutes to do it all. Less hair fall and does not cause split ends

absolutely love this product. upgraded to the 2' after years of using the regular sized ghd and i will never look back. takes 1/2 the time and makes my hair nice and silky and straight (obviously!)
for some reason i feel my hair stays straighter for longer with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloria1984 Just Perfect!
Gets hot in just a few seconds, its ergonomic and the cable doesnt tagle (because it turns around). The plates are rounded and this allow to curl the hair. Its perfect about security, ´cause it turns off if its not being used. Finaly, it becomes in a luxury box and has a case to keep it closed, even if it is still hot. Very recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SLEW THE BEST HAIR TOOL EVER CREATED!
I will never buy another brand of hair straightener. I have extremely wavey, very thick asian hair, and these are the only straighteners that have ever made my hair look shiny and soft and not crispy and dry. Expensive, yes - but utterly worth it. I highly recommend this product!
