ghd curve® classic curl tong

ghd curve® classic curl tong

(26mm) Medium barrel to create consistent curls for classic style and volume, even on shorter hair.

classic, covetable curls

Description

For classic style and volume, the ghd curve® classic curl tong has a 26mm medium barrel with spring activated ergonomic lever to create consistent curls, even on shorter hair. The protective cool tip provides you with a safe place to hold the hair in place while you curl, and the built-in safety stand allows you to place the tong down securely during styling. Other handy features include a professional-length cord to allow for flexible styling, automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes without use and universal voltage, so you can use your tong anywhere in the world.

Each ghd curve® tong contains the break-through ultra-zone technology that guarantees the right curling temperature of 185°C. This is maintained across the whole barrel thanks to the latest in advanced technology recognising the section of hair and adapting to ensure the correct styling temperature at all times; delivering lasting curls that are formed fast and stay locked-in, while respecting the health of your hair.

BEST FOR: Suitable for all hair types and lengths, including short hair.

TO USE: For long-lasting, classic curls; section the hair into 2cm wide and deep pieces. Open the clamp and flat wrap the hair around the barrel. Close the clamp to secure the end of the hair in place. Wait 5-8 seconds and then open the clamp to release. Alternatively, to create a luxe wave; section the hair as before but instead twist wrap the hair around the barrel. Hold the hair in place for 5-8 seconds (the clamp may not close completely due to the twisted section of hair being thicker) and then release.

STYLE TIP: Use the ghd curl hold spray to prep hair before curling - this will protect your hair from heat styling, and ensure your curls are long-lasting. For a sleek, glamorous look; curl all sections of hair in the same direction. For a more volumised look; alternate from wrapping sections of hair under and over the barrel to create curls that bounce off each other. Use a ghd detangle comb to soften the hair or a ghd dressing brush to smooth your curls.

What ghd curve tong would be better for my hair? The Classic Curl Tong or the Soft Curl Tong?

Asked by: AshaBrown1x
The 'best' would really depend on the type of look you are wanting to create. The Soft Curl Tong is perfect for creating big and bouncy, 'Hollywood Style' curls. The Classic Curl Tong, meanwhile, creates more narrow and defined curls.

Is there any way to remove the clamp? Or can you get the same styler without the clamp? The ends of my hair don’t curl well with this.

Asked by: User21
The ghd curve classic curl tong is only available with the clamp included. This is to allow for your hair to be held against the barrel as you style. Should you wish to style your hair without a clamp, we would recommend looking at our wands from the ghd curve range. The wands are available in two models: the creative curl wand (https://www.ghdhair.com/wands/ghd-curve-creative-curl-wand) and the classic wave wand (https://www.ghdhair.com/wands/ghd-curve-classic-wave-wand).

Do you sell permanent adaptors for the plug?

Hi, I bought several GHD irons in the US and am now moving to the UK. I don't want to keep using adaptors since it will be a permanent situation. How can change the plugs of my GHDs permanently? I remember that the UK prong contained a continental European prong inside, anyway to go the other way from a US prong to a UK prong, without a classic adaptor? Thank you,

All of our stylers come with universal voltage meaning they can be used throughout the world with the correct plug adapter.

Curling Tongs

Having recently returned a different brand of tongs because of the definite kink they created when securing the hair in the tong I am interested to know whether these GHD tongs would do the same? I know I could choose a wand instead to avoid this but for me I think I would find them more difficult to use. Yours in anticipation.
Asked by: Lal1976
This would all depend on the technique you are using when creating the curl and look you are wanting to create. we would advise to use our step by step guide this provides you with the different techniques when using the tongs http://ghd.tm/1D4fH9H.
