Price could be another issue. GHD’s straighteners tend to be in towards the middle and higher reaches of the price range (and you can certainly find much cheaper alternatives on the high street). However, think again if you want to buy straighteners on the cheap. The all-ceramic plates used by GHD cost more than ceramic coated or other types, but with their even heat distribution and the other heat management features offered by GHD, they will produce better results and less damage. That might be worth spending an extra £50.
In May 2007 a friend asked Gary to fix his wife's GHD 3.1B hair straighteners as Gary has a reputation for being able to fix anything!. Gary took them apart, discovered the thermal fuse had tripped, worked out how to replace the part (there were no spares available back then!) and got them back in action much to his friend's wallet's appreciation. Gary then proceeded to publish his findings on his weblog. That page received such interest that people started sending Gary their GHD's for repair and eventually he decided it was about time GHD Repair had it's very own website - GHD-Repair.co.uk was born! Since then the website has evolved into a business and we now have a full time workshop that offers a GHD repair service and sells spare parts online.
We’ve previously described this straightener as one of the best hair straighteners for curly hair. With a wider (and snazzier) plate than the usual straighteners, it’s designed specifically for thick, curly hair that seems nearly impossible to straighten and works miracles. Once you’re done, you can just pop it in the protective plate guard and it’s a great travel buddy as it has universal voltage capabilities too.

In 2001, ghd revolutionised the way women styled their hair with the launch of its first styler – a professional tool designed for salon use that could also be easily used at home. ghd has continued to be a leader and innovator in hair styling with its range of professional brushes, ghd Style styling products and the launch of its first hairdryer, ghd air™.

ghd launched its first advertising campaign in 2003, as the sponsor of the British reality television show The Salon.[20] The company has also featured prominently on Australia’s Next Top Model.[21] In November 2009, ghd ran a popular series of advertisements titled ‘Twisted Fairytales', including depictions of characters such as Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella with the tagline "You can do anything with your hair".[22][23] Singer Katy Perry was named the face of ghd in December 2011.[24][25]
A note about the photography-- that much chrome is tough to photograph!  What may appear to be smears or blotches in the photographs are often reflections, and sometimes diagonal lines result in a jagged or "aliased" appearance.  Please rest assured, the base of each GHD chrome key has a superb mirror-finish, at a time when OSHA and EPA restrictions have made good chrome plating almost impossible in the US. Larger upper parts have what GHD calls a "pear" finish which is a flawless satin chrome, much more resistant to fingermarks. The black-based keys are a heavy, durable multi-layer powder-coat which will resist wear and marking for many years.  The black-based keys are more expensive than the chrome versions, because the powder-coating process and associated handling are more expensive than electroplating in Japan.
