Rated 5 out of 5 by from The old faithful My old GHD’s were the originally which have lasted over 10 years so I knew that I was going to stick to those when ordering a new one. It’s perfect, still delivers the same sleekness and I love it. Just to add the delivery turnaround for this was amazing! Ordered on 22nd Dec and it arrived on the 23rd Dec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mrs Had a pair when I was much younger and longer hair also great then Now Iam older and have short hair they are still great My daughter loves them as she has curly hair and the work wonders
Date published: 2021-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent These were a Christmas present for my 14 year old daughter who has an absolute mop of crazy cork screw curls which she is (sadly) desperate to straighten. These things are amazing and the end result is the sleek straight hair she craves. I had to straighten her hair for her initially and I am very impressed - I have never used this product before and they are streets ahead of the competition

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality Loved my old GHD’s but my new ones the plates are too far apart, hair isn’t gripped enough to curl my hair, my hair slides straight out. Will have to pay extra for someone to adjust them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab product - glad to have my own one back! I have had GHD's since 2008 when my hair grew back curly after chemotherapy. I continue to use the same product now, 2020 - excellent value for money! I bought straighteners for my daughter for Christmas as mine were always in her bedroom - inconvenient for me! She is using them daily now she has her own - no heat effects to her hair - she used appropriate products to protect, and as the straightener is efficient it is not in contact with her hair for long periods of time. The performance of her new straighteners is not much different to my 12 year old ones - they are just a little more springy in the joint than mine.

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.

Do they have temperature control

Asked by: Hippy
The ghd IV styler operates between 175 and 185 degrees and does not have a temperature control.

the plates doesn't stick flat to each other?if thats like should be?

i got a ghd 4 styler today and when i compare to my old one i notice thats the plates doesn't stick to each other .
Asked by: izabela
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.

The plug model in Britain?

Is the plug different in Britain from the rest of Europe? Like in France for example?
Asked by: Mayflower
All orders purchased from our UK website will be shipped with a standard UK 3 pin plug. You will be required to use the correct plug adapter for the country you are in when using abroad.

Will these Straighter work in Canada

Hi I have a pair of these here in England but I'm moving to Canada for a year and I was wondering given the Canadian Mains Voltage is lower than the UKs will these work in Canada? THANKS, M x
Asked by: Monnia
Yes, the IV Styler will work in Canada. All of our stylers are equipped with universal voltage, which means that no matter where you are in the world it will work. The only thing you will need to do is use it with the appropriate plug adapter for the country that you are in.
