Are these ones better for short hair due to the casing of plates being smaller than the new Gold styler?

I am deciding between these and the new Gold styler but i am scared the bulkiness of the Gold styler might affects how close to the root of my hair i am able to straighten out from.
Asked by: NCAS
The original ghd IV styler and the ghd gold styler feaure the same plate size and are designed to be suitable for all hair lengths. However, if you are particularly concerned about styling shorther hair, we would recommend looking at the ghd mini styler: https://www.ghdhair.com/mini/ghd-mini-styler. This our only model to feature narrow plates, allowing you to style short hairstyles quickly and easily.

is there no actual hologram stamped onto IV styler now

Purchased new pair recently and no hologram stamped onto actual product, just a label on the cable with a hologram.model IV Styler@£99.2 previous pairs were stamped on product.

The ghd hologram is now situated on the label attached to the cable and also on the box. This is so that it doesn't distract from the striking design of your styler and to protect it from wear and tear.

Can I try it and if not happy, can it be returned?

I have tried so many straighteners and found the most expensive ones are the ones which doesnt work for me. So im a bit careful in buying straighteners as some of the shops do not take it back if its opened and tried out and now i have ended up with 3 straighteners lying in my room new and cannot be returned. So I want to be clear with the return policy as if i buy your product and if doesnt work on my hair, will I be able to return even if its opened snd tried out? Thanks

Has the design changed for the IV over the years?

some reviews have mentioned the plates don't meet in the middle on the IV anymore. I bought mine 7 years ago (which went bang today), and the plates meet in the middle for smooth straight hair. Has the design or quality changed in any way since then? Is it the same great quality product which will give the same great results?
Asked by: CurlyC
We can confirm that the ghd IV styler is designed to have a slight gap between the plates to allow for thermal expansion. Once the styler has heated up this gap reduces and does not affect the styling experience.

We can confirm that when ghd stylers are cold you will notice that there is a slight gap between the plates. This is to allow for thermal expansion and a smoother styling experience, the gap should reduce when the styler has heated up.
