/ 20 April 2022

The secret’s out. The trick to tamed tresses, is in the tools! A monthly trip to the salon is no longer the only way to have a good hair day. When it comes to cult-favourite, industry-leading stylers, no brand beats ghd.

The post-lockdown transition from full-time messy bun to daily styled tresses has been quite the adjustment. Figures show we’ve emerged from a year on the sofa wearing a third less make-up than pre-pandemic and it’s clear that we’ve come to crave maximum glow:time-spent-achievng-it bang for our buck. 

Thankfully for us, salon quality hair can exist with minimal effort from the right appliance. True to their name, ghd (good hair days) has got a gadget for every hair type, so whatever your style, you can achieve luscious locks with minimal interruption to your morning routine.

The Science Behind ghd

When it comes to hair styling, ghd’s rigorous research and development labs have discovered that 185º is the hot spot. Any hotter, the hair gets frazzled and any cooler, your curls will be dropping out faster than your hairdresser can ask about your weekend plans. ghd stylers deliver superior temperature control through high calibre sensors and heater technology allowing for effortlessly quick styling, without any heat damage.
