After a hair straightener that’s been designed with long, thick, or curly locks in mind? With its 70% larger ceramic plates, and clever dual zone heat technology that ensures less frizz and heat damage, the GHD Max Hair Straightener works twice as fast as other straighteners, and is top of our list for anyone with a large mane to manage.
The type of curling tong you choose will largely depend on the kind of finished look you’re hoping to achieve. For classic bouncy curls that look beautiful when brushed out, we’re big fans of the GHD Curve Classic Curl Tong — which has a 26mm ceramic barrel. With its protective cool tip, built-in safety stand, and handy clamp, it’s pretty easy to get to grips with, and makes a great choice for beginners. But if you’re keen to create tight and defined curls — or simply want a wand that’ll help you enhance your natural coils — try out the 14mm barrel GHD Curve Thin Wand, instead.
Hot brushes are great for quick and easy styling — and the GHD Glide Hot Brush in Alluring Jade is definitely one of our favourites. It’s made with a combination of long and short bristles so that larger sections of hair can be styled in one swoop, and its anti-static ioniser technology makes sure there’s minimal frizz left behind. For maximum lift in the roots, and movement in the lengths, the GHD Rise Hot Brush is hard to beat — and its great for creating that flicky and bouncy blow-dry look, particularly on shoulder-length hair.
If you’re looking for a trusty hair dryer, then The GHD Helios Hair Dryer in Alluring Jade is our top pick this Cyber Monday. Best for taming flyaways and unwanted frizz, it is the lightest hair dryer that GHD has on offer, and delivers salon-quality blow dries in an instant. My hair is pretty thick, and it dries it impressively quickly. Plus, I love that the nozzle gives me precise control over my style. You can switch between temperatures as well as making use of the cool shot button that sets styles for a longer-lasting hold.
But if you’re always short on time, swap the standard hair dryer for the GHD Duet Style Hot Air Styler. It dries and straightens the hair at the same time, and has four advanced floating plates equipped with infinity sensors that predict your hair’s exact needs, and ensure there’s no horrible sizzling or burning.
3. Best GHD gift set deals live in the UK:
With their jade and pink metallic accents, and chic dusky pink vanity cases, the gift sets from the limited edition Dreamland collection definitely make the prettiest presents. Boasting a platinum+ hair straightener, and a helios hair dryer, the GHD Deluxe Gift Set in Alluring Jade is a staple set that’s guaranteed to go down well with your sister, mum, or best friend this Christmas.
Great value for money, the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand Festive Gift Set and the GHD Thin Wand Festive Gift Set both come with an oval hairbrush, and a heat-resistant mat, and will make really thoughtful presents for the curl connoisseur in your life. But if straight hair is her style of choice, definitely give the gift of the GHD Unplugged Cordless Hair Straightener Festive Gift Set instead. Greta for girls who are always on-the-go, the cordless styler will work for up to twenty minutes when fully charged, and comes with a heat-resistant carry case so it can be stored safely even if it’s not quite cool yet.
4. Best GHD styling products and accessory deals live in the UK:
If you want your electrical tool to be as effective as possible, you’ll need to ensure that you’re stocked up on the right kind of hair styling products and accessories. The perfect stocking filler present, the GHD Styling Duo Gift Set is made up of the brand’s best-selling all-rounder paddle brush that’s great for both styling and detangling, and a bottle of their hero heat protectant spray.
There are quite a few different stand-alone styling products to choose from, but what’s really impressive is that they’re all also made with the GHD heat protectant system — so that’s one less product you’ll need to buy. For an instant boost in volume we love applying the GHD Pick Me Up root-lift spray before we go in with any hot brushes or blow dryers, while the GHD Curly Ever After spray makes curls look more defined, and last longer, when used in partnership with a wand or tong.
