Neither here, nor there

In terms of its quality, this product cannot be faulted. As with all GHD straighteners, the quality is exceptional. However, it seems this particular product has been designed to do both curls and straightening. 2-in-1, so to speak and, as such, it does neither of those things well. Both are possible if you follow the instructions, but I found that it's not truly succeeding in either curling or straightening your hair. The iron plate isn't wide enough for quick straightening and too flat for curling but, of course, you would expect the latter considering that, for all intents and purposes, this is a straightener pretending to be something else.
GHD usually beats many other straighteners hands down, so if you intend to spend this amount of money, I would recommend buying a proper GHD straightener or, in fact, split the cost between purchasing both curler and straightener. It is disappointing to spend this amount of money to buy something that claims to be both but does neither well.
3 stars only because the product is still of good quality but doesn't quite live up to high expectations normally delivered by GHD. Definitely not worth the price, unless you like paying for a lot of fancy packaging!
