ghd IV styler



ghd IV Classic Styler

The original ghd straightener, the IV Classic, is our best-seller and a multi-award winner for its slimline lightweight barrel and ceramic heating technology, it straightens and smooths to create beautiful waves, tight curls or straight hair that’s silky to touch.

The styler heats quickly and maintains temperatures of which is great; however to prevent from damage we always recommend using a heat protection spray or serum, which is why we’re giving these away this summer, with any purchases of the ghd IV Classic styler. Don’t miss out as it’s while stocks last.

The IV Classic has a sleep mode as an additional safety feature, if unused in 30 minutes (to try to avoid any little accidents) plus it allows you to store away your straighteners immediately after use with the confidence the styler will cool quickly, for all you ladies on the go!

The IV Classic is an all-round great styler for most normal hair types, taming frizz, forming beautiful curves and waves, and smoothing hair to a perfectly straight finish. What’s more, it is cost effective at £89 (including the free serum), plus with lots of great features, it’s perfect for recreating your favourite salon styles at home. Hurrah – good hair days for good!

The ghd eclipse Styler – White and Black

They say a picture says a thousand words, but this video will leave you speechless!

ghd describe this new straightener as ‘the game changer’ in hair styling, creating unbeatable professional results at home, due to its innovative and patented ‘tri-zone technology’. The eclipse straighteners have the ability to radically transform even the most challenging of hair textures and actually make your hair stronger! We were very impressed!

The very clever scientists at ghd created the the black and new white eclipse to transform every hair type without the application of more heat, which as we know, can lead to damaged hair – it’s optimum temperature is 185°C. Instead the results come from three sensors on each plate which reduce heat loss during styling, even out heat allocation and lock in shine whilst smoothing each strand of hair.

So if you have untamed frizz, the tightest of curls or afro-carribean hair, this is your number one hair essential – it’s simply perfect for everyone!
