Full marks for presentation and build quality,
This review is from: ghd Iconic Eras New Wave Limited Edition Gold Series Classic Styler Hair Straightener Gift Set (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)These are the first pair of ghd straighteners that I've had to use. I have been using a considerably cheaper pair (Philips HP8361/07 ProCare Keratin Hair Straighteners) for some time. I was interested to know what extra you get for your money with ghd that you don't get with lower priced straighteners? Largely it seems to come down to presentation with some element of superior build quality. If these are for a gift then the recipient will not fail to be impressed - a beautiful box with a glittery sleeve on top. Open up the box and inside is a tissue packaged handbag style bag which contains the straighteners and accessories. In addition to the bag, the accessories include some hair clips and a heat-proof cover for the end of the straighteners - very useful. Switch the straighteners on (switch on the inside) and wait a matter of seconds before a bleep indicates that they are ready to use. There is only one temperature, so unlike the ones I am used to using, these can't be adjusted to suit hair type. The plates run smoothly through hair and create a smooth and silky finish. The build quality is of a high standard and they feel very well made. The only small issue is getting the straighteners back into the bag - it's a tight fit.
Easy to use, good quality with a good result but ultimately you are paying a lot for the ghd name and a pretty bag. The finish to my hair, while good, is no different than the lower priced straighteners I'm familiar with.
