GHD Classic Styler Review Flat Iron Review

You can’t overestimate how important your hair is when it comes to your appearance. It is that one fashion accessory that you were born with and it can affect everything about you, just by how it looks. This is why you should always put in a lot of effort to maintain your hair, and just why travel and bed hair can be a real pain.

When it comes to hair straighteners, I am extremely picky. I bought the GHD Classic Styler and decided that I would try it out. I have super long hair and it is a real pain. Since I got the classic styler I haven’t had any issue with it. I can use it to make my hair very sleek and straight, or I can use it to create twists and curls for new and unique styles.

If you want to have straight hair, simply mist your hair with the thermal protector and then start closest to your roots. What is great, is that it’s very smooth, so there isn’t any snagging on my hair. There are instructions that come with this styler that will show you how to create soft curls, which is basically turning the straightener while you glide from the roots. The GHD Classic Styler is great for multiple uses. The smooth heating plates and the body is lighter and a lot cooler to the touch. What I enjoy is the fact that it heats up quickly and it has universal voltage, so you can plug it in anywhere, and you don’t need a transformer.

Another featured that I have fell in love with is the automatic sleep mode which will turn off the styler if it isn’t used for 30 minutes and there is a protective plate guard that you can use after you have finished using it. This is a great styling tool if you plan to travel or for use at your home. There is only one true issue, it is very easy to be duped and purchase a fake. There are a few ways that you can tell if it is a genuine GHD Classic. This model will state that its made in PRC or Korea, it has domed screws, DVD has a number and back code, comes with 2 booklets, it comes in a matte box which is strong and thick, and there will only be one hole where the cord meets the body.

Let’s cover the pro’s and con’s.


  • It is easy to use
  • Works as its advertised
  • Helpful instructions, with DVD
  • Doesn’t destroy your hair like other straighteners
  • Perfect for traveling


  • It is so popular that people try to sell fake copies of it

Overall the GHD Classic Styler is perfect for those who want a styling tool that will not only straighten, but curl as well. This is a great versatile tool that I am glad that I have in my styling arsenal. The price is a bit steep, but it is worth the investment to have a great tool.
