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. And for curls that last, pair the ghd curve® classic curl tong with ghd curly ever after - curl hold spray for 24 hour curl hold*.

 

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.

*Technical test measuring curl retention in a humidity chamber at 50% relative humidity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ghd classic curl tong As someone who has struggled for a long time to put waves in my hair with straighteners or a curling wand (I even tried one of those bizarre contraptions on a famous voucher app), I felt that this tong was my last hope. After a little practice, I was able to create those elusive waves, much to my relief and delight. I wish I'd done so at the start. I haven't burnt my fingers or ears either! ;) I'd wholeheartedly recommend the ghd curve classic tong. Watch the YouTube clips/ghd reels and invest in one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product but for the money I paid I was disappointed there was no heat mat included. I love the tongs but I expected (foolishly I guess) they would have come with a heat mat. I had to spend another £22 for a mat and case for them. Not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from prodotto molto valido Ho i capelli mossi fino a sopra le spalle ma non sono proprio un mosso definito e quindi volevo qualcosa che desse ai miei capelli forma e volume. Ho acquistato questo arricciacapelli e sono rimasta davvero soddisfatta! Arriccia i capelli in poco tempo quindi sono subito pronta, non mi scotto le dita e le onde sono veramente belle senza quell effetto finto ma piuttosto direi un effetto ordinato.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curls as only a GHD would do Unfortunately for me, the curls dropped out very quickly. Maybe my hair type? I suggest curling and using hairspray immediately after each curl to prolong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ottimo ferro, poter fare la piega a casa da sola è impagabile. Esattemente quello che cercavo, ferro molto pratico. La levetta per inserire la ciocca si apre in modo ampio quindi il ferro è facile da usare e non dà nessun tipo di problema, ho provato a fare le onde senza applicare spray o prodotti vari e la piega è davvero long lasting anche se la prossima volta prenderò qualche prodotto per prolungarne la durata. Il risultato finale è che il capello risulta lucido, senza effetto crespo come per le piastre ghd ed ho notato anche più volume nella capigliatura. Molto bello e soddisfacente, prenderò solo strumenti pe lo styling ghd perché mi trovo molto bene.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The curls lasts for days but the product burns I have a second degree burn on my arm. If I could attach a photo here, I would show everyone. Wish there is a capabillity to control the heat. Serious burns I got from the tong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is easy to use Heats up quickly, makes nice waves on growing out short hair. I’m only doing the crown so doesn’t take too long .My hair is naturally poker straight and this gives me an instant new look and refresh as well as adding body. So far so good !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Das Produkt ist nicht für kürzere Haare geeignet Meine Haare gehen bis unter die Schultern, und die Locken sehen einfach nicht gut damit aus, obwohl bei der Beschreibung steht, es sei auch für kürzere Haare geeignet. Bei langen Haaren ist es aber zu empfehlen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product was very disappointing. I expected the product to create a large smooth curl but it was far too tight and did not pull smoothly. It tugged my hair and made it frizz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product! Simply Perfect For the perfect wave or spiral curl for long to short hair, been a hairstylist my clients also said how much they love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic curling iron Absolutely love it. I got the one inch and I have shoulder length hair with long side bang. I just use the curling iron like a twist with the hair all the way around my head. Then I shake spray and go with soft beach waves in no time flat! Buy it you won’t regret.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Too hot for my fine hair no control over heat gone back to my cloud 9 straighteners for curls on much lower temperature
Date published: 2020-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably best for shorter hair Really great curler, easy to use and global voltage! Which is nice as I can bring this along without worrying on holiday. I will say that I think this might be slightly too small of a barrel for hair that is beyond shoulder/collarbone. Depends on what kind of look you’re going for, I guess.

Which do I buy the classic or curve tong?

I have fine shoulder length hair which has a tendancy to frizz. At the moment I use heated rollers to get volume into my hair. Which curling tong should I buy? The 26mm or the 32mm?
Asked by: Silver
As you have fine shoulder length hair we would recommend the ghd Curve® Classic Curl Tong, this barrel size of 26mm will be most suitable for your hair. We also offer a 21 day returns policy, meaning if you are not completely satisfied with your product you can return it to us for a full refund, even if it has been used,

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,
Asked by: Isa4sf
All of our stylers come with universal voltage meaning they can be used throughout the world with the correct plug adapter. Unfortunately we are unable to change the plugs on the product and we recommend that you contact our customer service team on 01924 423400 and they will be happy to advise you further.

Which is best for me?

I have almost shoulder length fine curly hair ,which is quite frizzy,especially at the back. I want a curler that will give me soft curls/waves that will make my hair look more styled and elegant. I am a complete novice so need it to be easy to use,but confused as to which?
Asked by: Yuri
The ghd curve® classic curl tong creates smaller curls for a more classic style. For the style you require we would recommend either the soft curl tong or the creative curl wand. Both of these curlers can be found at the below link. http://www.ghdhair.com/ghd-range-hub/hair-curlers-range

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. We do offer a 21 days no quibble refund policy so if you are not completely satisfied you are able to return the order.

At what temperature does the classic curl tong work at?

I would like to ask at what temperature the classic curl tong works at and how many minutes it requires to heat up before use. Thank you.
Asked by: MATR
The ghd curve® classic curl tong features our exclusive tri-zone technology which maintains the optimum styling temperature of 185 degrees. The tong is designed to heat up within 30 seconds.
