Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great straighteners I have very fine hair and find it difficult to maintain my style until the end of the day. Other straighteners don’t make my style last until the end of the day, but these do. I do find I have to make sure I’ve got a decent amount of hair in them otherwise they don’t do a lot. A few sweeps for each piece of hair and you’re done. These don’t make my hair ridiculously hot but still style beautifully. Definitely worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Very disappointed with this Straightener. Not up to the usual GHD standard. Had it for less than a month and it is already catching my hair and presumably not heating up sufficiently. Will be returning for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product I bought these to replace my old ghd straightener which I had for 14 years and served me well. The new ghd straightener is even better as has some additional features such as it bleeps when they are ready to use. If you forget to turn it off it does this automatically after 15 minutes, a good safety feature. I am very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Me gusta mucho la plancha. Como critica constructiva, creo que por el precio del producto que es elevado, deberian de enviar una bolsa para guardarla Es un producto bueno y de precio elevado, creo que podrían enviar junto a la plancha una bolsita de tela o un estuche para guardarla, no que viene sin nada para el precio que tiene. Una bolsa de tela no vale nada y quedaría mucho mejor. Gracias

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18 years of loving GHD still going strong Since I Started using GHD straighteners when I started my career 18 years they have never let me down. My latest purchase was purely to get a squeaky clean set even though the previous older set are still going strong. Thanks GHD :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They are ok For the price and brand reputation I had high expectations, however now having used them a few times I am left thinking they are average. Things that I think would improve them 1) a way to lock them closed, to help with storage/travel etc 2) a temp gage, there’s only one temp setting which for my hair type still leaves it quite kinky/frizzy 3) not sure is this is just me, but I find they snag my hair a lot in the plate. However they heat up very quickly, very light in weight and long power cord which is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has brilliant features I previously used the Toni and Guy wide plate straightners for my hair but found my hair would go frizzy and tangled the moment I stepped outside. However after hearing good reviews about the GHD straightners, I thought I would invest in some. I have to say these are the best straightners I have ever used. They straighten my hair in one go and leaves it feeling smooth, silky and of course straight! I use some heat protect spray before using the straightners to avoid further damage to my split ends. Best purchase ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Good pair of hair straighteners only reason not given 5 stars is I had the original hair straighteners when they were first launched and you can tell they are not made to the same standard. Still a good product though and would only ever use these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love these straighteners but don’t buy direct I bought these after my old pair stopped working after a good 10 years of use. I love the straighteners but found them cheaper on Amazon. I tried to cancel my order within 30m of ordering but was told this wasn’t possible despite them only being dispatched 3 days later. I then had to pay £8 to return them. Highly recommend buying elsewhere as GHD customer service is SHOCKING. Completely off-putting and lets down a good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dont get the hype I bought these because the names supposed to be good and my sister had some about 15yr ago and loved them, turns out the qualities changed over the years, the actual originals when they first came out 10 odd yrs ago could straighten a slinky, (joking but you get the idea) I straightened my hair and within hours it had gone curled at the end or flicked out, I'd have to go over pieces 5 or 6 times to get them straight in the first place, had them for 4 days and sold them, better, cheaper straighteners out there by a landslide.

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.

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.

Is the plug different in Britain from the rest of Europe? Like in France for example?

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.
