ghd curve® soft curl tong

ghd curve® soft curl tong

The perfect hair straightener for waves, curls and super sleek styles.

big, bouncy, beautiful curls


Designed to create big curls and soft waves; the ghd curve® soft curl tong has a 32mm large barrel with a spring activated ergonomic lever. 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.

To ensure the correct styling temperature of 185°C is reached and maintained the new ultra-zone technology in the barrel recognises each section of hair to lock in styles and respects the health of your hair to ensure styles last throughout the day. And for curls that last, pair the ghd curve® soft curl tong with ghd curly ever after - curl hold spray for 24 hour curl hold*.


Best for: Creating soft tumbling curls and volume at the root, on all hair types. Works best on longer locks.


To use: For a big, bouncy, curly blow-dryed look; 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 loose wave; section the hair as before but instead twist wrap the hair around the barrel - this creates a more relaxed style. 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 not only protect the hair from the heat of the curler, but also 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 detangling comb to soften the hair or a ghd paddle brush to smooth your curls.

ghd curve® soft curl tong is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 344.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t do anything I have tried and tried with these tongs but they do nothing for my hair. I have straight hair and after using... I still have straight hair. I have watched the videos but I can’t make a difference. Perhaps I should be giving the poor review to my hair rather than the tongs? I don’t know what the issue is, just that this was an expensive mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Produit excellent Je suis très satisfaite de mon achat. Ce boucleur est de très bonne qualité. Après 4 mois d’utilisation (environ 2j/semaine) mes cheveux ne sont pas abîmés. Les boucles ont une longue durée malgré que mes cheveux soit fin. Facile d’utilisation, je boucle mes cheveux en 15 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money So disappointed with this, my hair looked good for half an hour and then completely fell flat. I've had much better results with cheaper brands. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stab OK, Klammer schlecht, wird heiß Der Lockenstab ist eigentlich i.O. und gut zu händeln. Aber die Klammer ist aus Metall, keine Keramikbeschichtung. Dadurch wird diese heiß und schädigt das Haar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ne boucle pas Ce produit ne boucle pas les cheveux. Malgré un temps fou passer dessus, des mèches toutes plus fines les unes que que les autres il ne boucle pas, au mieux j’obtient une vague. Le pire étant que celle ci disparaît au bout de 10min (meme avec le spray fixateur). Ce boucleur n’est pas fait pour les cheveux lisses et fins. Grosse déception. J’étais prête à mettre chère pour un boucleur de qualité fonctionnant sur moi, malheureusement, il donne exactement voir moins de résultat qu’un boucleur classique 6x moins chère. Je ne l’utiliserais pas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fina men kortlivade lockar Lätt att använda och det blir otroligt fina lockar. Dock håller de inte alls länge, bara efter någon timme har de gått ur mitt hår som är väldigt lättstylat annars. Har billigare locktänger som ger lockar som håller till dagen därpå.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Curls drop out in 30 mins Unfortunately this product does not suit my hair type as it does not keep the curls in whatsoever. Even after prepping and using curl spray I have tried the product in multiple ways and I have had to return back to ghd.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ottima Perfetta per chi vuole onde morbide. Non pensavo che fosse davvero così ma quando dicono che dopo l’ultilizzo il capello risulta morbido e setoso è vero( o almeno su di me è così)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! A heat proof glove is a necessary if you’re clumsy like me, and a few practices are required to get the technique for repeatable reliable curls. The tongues are amazing at delivering long lasting bounce and volume to my poker straight, incredibly thick and relatively course textured hair! Don’t be afraid to brush the curls out as they will turn into a beautiful wave that will last a good 24-36 hours and there on out will turn into subtle volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed thanks I have medium length hair - perfect for creating soft wave - quick and easy!

Which ghd curl is suitable for medium hair length? And which ghd is for wavering medium hair length?

Asked by: Louli
For curling hair of a medium length, we would recommend either the ghd classic curl tong or the ghd creative curl wand. The 'best' model for you, however, does depend on the look you want to achieve. The classic curl tong ( will help create defined curls for a more classic look. The creative curl wand (, help to create relaxed curls to give a 'beachy' and natural effect.

my hair wont curl and it wont stay in

i got these as a xmas gift. Ive tried curling my hair the way it instructed but it wont curl . i curled it like normal tongs and by the time i got ready it had dropped out
Asked by: savage
When curling, we recommend securely clamping the hair in place, holding for 5 - 8 seconds and then releasing. If you have difficulty ensuring the curl lasts, you may find it beneficial to prep with a light spritz of the ghd curl hold spray.
