If you’re looking to make every day a Good Hair Day but don’t know where to start, then this post is for you. We’ll help you suss out the best ghd for your hair type and styling needs, so you can find your perfect ghd match. 

The Best ghd for… Normal Hair

If you have hair that’s not too thick or too fine, super short or extremely long, then you’re probably best suited to one of our classic ghd stylers. There are three main ghd models that you can currently buy, and the originals get just as much love as the newer versions. This is because ghds are one of the most reliable electrical brands around, and customers know that they’re getting their money’s worth, whichever model they choose.

ghd Stylers: The Classic

  • ghd IV

    The ghd IV, or mark 4 styler, is still a firm favourite amongst our stylists and our guests despite being one of the original models. Reaching a temperature of 185 degrees, the IV styler is perfect for creating smooth, straight styles, curls or waves. The floating aluminium plates make the styler easier to hold and control, while additional features such as the 2.7 metre cable and universal voltage make it even more practical.

  • ghd V

    When ghd released the V styler, it became an instant success. With the same amazing versatility and flawless results of the IV, the V has some great additional features. The contoured barrels make it easier than ever create curls and waves, while the lighter, cooler casing make it even more comfortable. A more durable cable and automatic sleep mode help to give you peace of mind when traveling.

  • ghd Platinum+

    As the newest styler from ghd, the Platinum+ is an upgrade of the bestselling ghd Platinum. This styler gives a new experience when styling your hair; the wishbone hinge ensures perfectly even styling, while the breakthrough ultra-zone technology adjusts the temperature of the precision milled plates to suit the thickness of your hair as you style it. This amazing styler comes in black, white and the above cool glacial blue.

The Best ghd for... Short Hair

If you have short hair, you might find you struggle to use straighteners with traditional sized plates. This is where the ghd V Gold Mini Styler comes in. This smaller version of the ghd V Gold Classic Styler has the same amazing technology, but the thinner plates allow for more precise styling and control. This is also the best ghd styler for styling smaller sections of hair that need a bit more focus - yep, fringes, we're looking at you!

The Best ghd for... Long/Thick Hair

With the same great technology as the Classic but with significantly wider plates, the ghd V Gold Max Styler can tackle even the thickest and most unruly hair with ease. If you have long hair, then you'll also love how quickly the wider plates will glide through your locks, cutting down on your styling time.

ghd Hairdryers

As well as stylers for straightening and curling, ghd are also renowned for their selection of hairdryers, used in salons all over the world. There are currently three ghd hairdryers available on the market, all suited to different needs. The Aura, the Air and the ghd Flight dryer all deliver salon-quality results, and look beautiful too – they’re also regularly included in limited edition collections, so keep an eye out for these!

But which ghd hairdryer is the best for you? The Air has a salon-quality, 2100w strength motor, allowing you to dry your hair twice as quickly as you can with other leading hairdryers. Ionic technology helps to control frizz, while the two nozzles allow for versatile styling. For ultra-polished results with extra gloss and smoothness, the Aura is an advanced drying tool. Lighter and quieter than the Air, the Aura also benefits from a new generation of motor – however, the advanced technology does make it slightly more expensive. If you’re looking for an affordable, compact travel dryer then the ghd Flight is the one for you.

ghd Curve

If you love curls and waves but find the stylers a little tricky to master, you can get the look in seconds with a more traditional curling wand. Curve is ghd’s collection of wands and tongs, designed to create flawless curls or beachy waves in a variety of hair types.

Long-haired ladies will love the Classic Wave Wand, with its impressive 38-26mm shaped barrel. The smaller-barrelled Creative Curl Wand will suit all hair lengths, while the conical wand allows for more versatile, tousled waves. If you prefer a tong rather than a wand, the Classic Curl Tong is the best Curve for you. With the same optimum curling temperature as the wand (185 degrees, if you were wondering), you can expect the same long-lasting results with added ease.
