I have tried many ceramic flat irons over the years and my favorite has always been the ghd. It’s just a step above all the rest, albeit it has a much higher price. For me its quality makes it worth it.
Saying that, I was eager to try this curling iron out.
On the plus side, this feels like a quality curling iron, much like ghd’s superior ceramic flat iron. My hair just slides onto the curling wand and doesn’t get caught or stick like so many other curling irons I’ve tried. In this regard, this product excels.
To work it, simply plug it in and press the power on button and it will reach its goal temperature in under 20 seconds - remarkably fast and the location of the button is great because you won’t accidentally press it while you’re using it.
I do have one concern but I’m not sure if it’s all that valid. This curling iron only has one heat setting. Now I have long(ish) thick and fairly coarse hair and the setting it has worked perfectly for me, but there may be some of you with finer hair who would prefer another lower setting. Supposedly this iron will sense and adjust to your hair type and the amount of hair on the iron - if that’s the case, and it appears to be for my hair, then this is about as great a curling iron as you’re going to get.
Editing to add this - I just went to my hairdresser who told me she’s used this ghd curling iron and its worked perfectly on every hair type she’s tried to far. She said it’s the curling iron she now uses so that’s good to hear, obviously.
I do love this curling iron and it’s the one I will be using in the future.
As far as the price, that’s up to you. I will say that my other ghd products have withstood a lot of use and never caused me problems and that is saying something. It is pricey, but I know mine will get a lot of use.
1. There is no temperature control - It burnt my hair :( I wish they had some temp control, at least low, medium and high heat options. There isn't. It is 1 temperature and it gets pretty hot in about 5 min.
2, There is no heat protection glove - The cool tip, not so cool. I burnt my fingers 2 times in 1 use. Yup not so cool after all.
3. There is no carrying case - For the price, ghd should at least give us a carry case.
I don't hold up curls well so the high heat is what i choose normally anyway but since this gets so hot, it became unpleasant to use it after 20 min and 2 burns :(
If you already have a heat protection glove, dont mind the high heat and the PRICE, go for it.

THE GHD CURVE IRON - DESIGN
This curling is mostly made from a nice looking flat black plastic, with a rubberized non-hot tip, and rubberized fixed stand. The single control (power button with lit ring around it) is located in the typical spot. On the back is a small speaker that enables alert chimes, including an “at temperature” chime. The cord swivels 360 degrees around the base and is 100” long, with an integrated breaker in the power brick where it plugs into the wall. This power brick design prevents you from plugging in anything in the outlet below it. The heated portion of the barrel is 4.5” long and the diameter is 1”.
THE GHD CURVE IRON – USE & RESULTS
I timed warm-ups from cold a few times, and each time the unit is ready to curl after less than 20 seconds of warm-up (this is quicker than advertised). This iron maintains a fixed temperature of 365°F and no adjustment is provided. This temperature curls my fine hair in 6-8 seconds. Overall, this curling iron functions exactly the same as other curling irons I’ve used, and results are similar – no better, no worse.
Included is a 2-year warranty. If your unit has an issue and is repaired/replaced, the new unit continues with the original warranty, and the warranty will be extended to ensure a minimum 180day warranty on the replacement. No details are provided on the warranty procedure (i.e. if you need to send it to them at your cost, etc.)
THIS GHD VS CORSAIR INSTANT HEAT
Warm-up time – 20s (ghd), 90s (Corsair)
Power Cord length – 100” (ghd), 60” (Corsair)
Auto shut off – after 25 minutes (ghd), after 60 minutes (Corsair)
Warranty – 2 years (both ghd and Corsair)
Price - $200+ (ghd), $15 (Corsair)
Results – basically the same (my Corsair is a ¾” barrel, while this ghd is 1”, so the actual curls are different radius as expected).
Although I love this curling iron, I’m removing a star only because I feel the price is excessive (10x the cost of my previous curling iron). If you curl daily and warm-up time is important to you, you should definitely consider this curling iron. For occasional use, this model is too expensive.
The write up reads: the heat is monitored 250 times per second so that it’s constantly at the optimum 365°F styling temperature for quick results to save both your hair and time. How is this even possible? It is, because GHD has done it.
The wand took twenty-five seconds to warm up. Just as promised. It is made so well that it puts all other curlers to shame. It’s sleek, light, compact, well-made and gorgeous. Did I mention it uses Ultra Zone technology? That means it spreads the heat across the whole barrel, equally. It also has what I like to call a safe-zone – the spot on the tip of the wand that allows you to hold and twist the wand to achieve the perfect wave/curl. There is a whole lot of thought, precision and quality that’s gone into this hair styling product.
One of the most impressive things about the wave wand is its power in producing beautiful waves with ease but maintaining hair’s quality and shine.
The wand is built so well. It doesn’t have a cheap plastic feel to it like most curling wands do. The spring activated ergonomic lever is so easy to press and the power button is in a convenient spot where you don’t accidentally press it and turn it off when using the wand on your hair. Also, it has a special automatic sleep mode after 30 seconds if it’s not being used. Smart and pretty.
+Heats up quickly

This is a top notch hair curler! This is a brand I haven’t heard of before but they continue to impress me with their high quality products. This curler right out of the box screams quality, and has all the things you look for in a curler – heats up quickly, is comfortable and easy to use, and it is made of ceramic so it’s safe heat being applied to your hair. Overall a great product.
Rating Breakdown (5/5)
Product Quality: 5
Ease of use: 5
The "ghd Curve Iron Curl, Classic" measures 10.5 inches from tip to tip, and the heated portion of the barrel is 4.4 inches long with a diameter of 1 inch.
The curling iron heats up in 8 seconds to a consistent heat of 365 F. The On/Off button flashes dimly and gets brighter until it reaches the correct temperature and then stays lit. The curling iron has an automatic sleep mode and will shut off after 25 minutes of non-use. I love this safety feature as I am one who always questions if I unplugged things.
The tongs open easily. The handle stays cool to the touch and there is a safety stand that helps prevent your hand from sliding up to the hot part of the barrel during use. You can also use this to keep the hot barrel off the counter when not in use.
There is a protective cool tip gives you a safe place to hold while you curl. The tip is graduated to fit comfortable in your fingers.
The cord is approximately 9 feet long with a Push-to-Reset circuit breaker.
The cord also has a swivel end that allows you to wind the curling iron around your hair without the cord getting all tangled up.
The barrel stays hot for an extended period of time after it has been turned off. Be sure that it has completely cooled before touching it or putting it away. You only need to hold your hair on the curling iron for 5-8 seconds.
The "ghd Curve Iron Curl, Classic" give loose tumbling waves with minimal effort on your part, the curling iron does all the hard work. The even heat and comfort handle makes styling your hair easy and efficient.
*Disclosure: I received a complimentary "ghd Curve Iron Curl, Classic" through the Amazon Vine Program in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Having used this now for weeks we've gotten a very good understanding of how well it works and so far haven't found anything wrong. I don't like using something once or twice and the writing a review, I can't give real information without really testing an item and that means repetition is needed.
I admit that the brand name is new to me but after this I'm looking forward to more ghd products. There isn't a single thing I dislike about this curler. It feels good to hold, its well designed, and on its own it also looks good.
Admittedly, this particular curler isn't meant to provide tight curls, its a big barrel so waves are what it produces best unless you do the suggested twist-wrap with your hair on the barrel.
► The cool-to-the-touch barrel tip is a nice feature, less burned fingers this way.
► One nice feature here is the swiveling cord, I hate cable twist and this makes the problem go away. The swivel is infinite, no matter how many times you twist the handle, the cord doesn't wind up and twist.
► The cord itself is also nice, thinner than most and long enough to allow easy use even when not right in front of an AC outlet.
► The plug and is a built in GFI power box helps reduce the risk of electrocution if this is accidentally submerged in water while plugged in.
► There's a lot of clamping pressure on the lever which keeps hair secured while being treated.
► Opening the lever doesn't require a lot of strength.
By fart for us the greatest feature of this curler is that the cord doesn't get wound up and interfere with the process. This is something that you don't get in cheap curlers.
There is no temperature control on this model, just a simple on/off switch. I know some people prefer to set the temp but it's just one more thing that can go wrong over time and here we haven't had any issues with it getting too hot or not hot enough. There are other safety feature which I like. If I head out to a movie, forgetting to unplug it, the curler will automatically go into a sleep mode after 25 minutes. No more worrying about burning down the house.
There is one thing I would like to see added, a silicone layer on the handle which would make hanging on to it simpler. The handle is very smooth and slippery in some cases.
I have transitioned from using the traditional curling iron to the clipless wand variety - but this traditional clip curling iron is really good. I find the 1.25 inch barrel is the size that provides for looser waves - it's too thick to be able to create any tighter curls. But looser waves are the style these days, so this fits the bill just fine.
I also like how he tip of the iron never gets hot, so it's a safe place to rest your hand when you're curling. And the 30-minute auto shutoff feature presents extra peace of mind when using this curling iron.
Am also a HUGE fan of the dual voltage, so it's easy to pop in my bag when travelling. This is a really great "classic style" curling iron - really the last one you'll need to buy. Recommended!
We have been sent two curl irons:
(1) ghd Curve Iron Curl, Soft
(2) ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand
Both of these irons are priced at $249. After trying both irons all I can say is both of these are by far the best hair curling irons. At $249, it is very expensive and out of each for many consumers, but if you are looking for one of the best curling irons in the market, this is it.
We loved these well-made curl-irons. Most importantly it does great job at creating beautiful beach waves and glamorous bouncy hair. They are gentle on colour treated hairs.
ghd Curve Iron Curl, Soft features large 1.25 inch diameter barrel and they are designed to create big curls and soft waves. On the other hand, ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand features tapered barrel which tapers from 1” to 0.9” to create deep waves and natural looking curves.
Both of these irons features ultra zone technology to maintain uniform 365 deg F temperature across the barrel. ghd has incorporated technologies into these irons which makes it all automatic, just push the on button and it’s all done for you. It automatically adjusts the heat setting based on your hair. It features some sort technology that recognizes each section of your hairs while you are styling and adjusts power to ensure optimum temperature. Both irons are ceramic coated. The tip is cool which allows for safe place to hold your hairs while curling.
Both irons also has on-off switch indicator by both light and sound. Iron has press and hold design to prevent accidental use. Both has Auto-sleep mode which will turn iron off if left unattended for 30 minutes.
Both irons also features universal voltage which is great for travel and use anywhere in the world.
Both iron has professional grade long swivel cord.
Both irons comes beautifully packaged and makes for ideal luxury gift.
ghd also sells curl hold spray which is also available on Amazon and it will protect your hair from heat as well s this will make curls to last longer.

If you love to take care of your hairs and if you can afford, this is one of the best hair styler in the market.
My wife LOVE this curling iron and definitely found it easier to use as the clamp holds hair in place against the ceramic element giving consistent repeatable results. After a quick and almost effortless curling session, just as described, super soft tumbling waves of hair like magic. While there is a noted cool tip on the iron, my wife said that she didn't find herself needing to use it as the iron is fairly light and the clamp worked well at holding her hair in place. The built in safety stand is a great design element as the curler can be put down while prepping another section of hair. Not having to worry about the iron rolling around or damaging a counter top is an invaluable inclusion that shows how thoughtful design can make all the difference.
It is worth noting that you won't be able to achieve small and tight curls because of the much larger heating barrel so choice of which one to get really depends on the look you're trying to achieve.
If you still use your straightener to curl your hair you are definitely missing out on fabulous curls with this product. Based on the gushing reactions from my wife, this soft curl iron is an easy recommendation. While there is a price premium for the ghd brand, they have delivered on quality and stand behind their products with the included a 2 year warranty. My wife said it best: the packaging and sleek design and quality of the product, justify the high end price tag.
There is no temperature control, but ghd is a trusted salon brand that has selected a heat that should work for most and that is, at least according to them (and in my own experience) actually quite ideal.
This felt a bit like the Apple product of curling irons in terms of packaging and presentation which is nice. It is certainly high quality.
It has a quick heat up time of about 30 seconds and has some ceramic technology for good even heat. Overall I'm really happy with this and if you're looking for a higher end curling iron product this is certainly a strong contender.
This is a very sleek looking curling iron that feels very comfortable in your hand. I thought, a curling iron is a curling iron, but was surprised to really notice a difference between this product and the cheaper ones I typically use.
This heats up super quick, about 10-15 seconds, it indicates when heated with a little chime. It is easy to use and grips your hair securely to help achieve those tight curls. It also has a cool tip to grip when curling. The one-inch barrel makes it easy to get nice soft waves. It does get very hot (be careful not to burn yourself!) so I found that it curled quickly. This is great, because you don’t have to burn your hair to get the curl. I like having the tong to hold the hair when curling, which is easier for me to use, compared to the type without a tong that you wrap your hair around. When you are curling your hair into waves, you may notice a little kink where the tong holds the hair. My daughter noticed this and didn’t like it, but it did not bother me since it was barely noticeable (see pic below).
The iron has a small stand on the bottom that keeps it securely on the counter when using. I have thin, fine hair and it curled it easily. It takes less than 5 seconds to achieve the curl. It has a long cord which swivels, so the cord does not get tangled up when you are using it. The GHD also has a nice safety feature that automatically shuts it off after 30min. I do have to repeat the fact that it does get very hot and I can see one easily burring themselves if not careful. The web site is awesome too. Definitely check it out to see videos to achieve various hair styles. My only complaint is that it seems to shut off at times while using it. This is after a few minutes of operation, not after the 30 min safety feature. I am not sure why it is doing this and plan to contact customer service about this. For this reason, I am giving the product 4 stars.
Overall, a great product! Definitely recommended if you are looking for quality. You will certainly notice a difference between the GHD and cheaper curling irons.
This curling iron is easy to turn on with the press of a button and it heats up in seconds. It feels nice in the hand and takes less time to curl my long hair than other curling irons I have tried.
To turn it off, you hold down the button for about 2-3 seconds. I haven't had any issue with hitting it by accident and turning it off accidentally. The curling iron will also give you peace of mind knowing it will turn itself off within 25 minutes.
It creates beautiful soft curls and hasn't caused any damage to my hair at all since I have started using it. I believe that if you want a high-quality curling iron that will give you those soft, sexy curls, you should give this one a try.
+Very well made (solid)
+Very rapid heat up (seconds)
+Easy to turn on -hold button down for one second
+Easy to turn off - holding the button down more than two seconds helps avoid accidentally turning it off while styling
+Good safety features- built in breaker and 25 minute auto sleep function along with other functions
+Produces excellent results.
+One default temperature setting and it does the job.
+Built in safety stand ( rest it shiny part up on its back)
+Includes basic instructions on how to style
-Cool tip at the end of the barrel could be longer to avoid accidentally touching of the barrel.
Reading the safety instructions is a must. This ghd is a high quality well made hair curler with good material. It has a good sturdy feel to it and looks good. Most importantly, used properly and probably depending on hair type, will give great looking results. It certainly gave great results on my wife's hair!
The most standout thing about the curler is definitely the set up time, which is almost non existent as it heats up so fast. My wife especially appreciates this as her old equipment has to be left on the counter for a long time before it's ready to go. The push button start and the fact that it actually tells you when it's ready to go are pretty neat. The freely rotating power cord connector at the end of the device is also pretty helpful in keeping the cord out of your way while you're using it.
It's not cheap, but you definitely get the impression that it's a well made and thoughtfully designed tool while using it. I'm sure you could spend even more on one out there, but it's such a big upgrade over the basic stuff we have a hard time believing that anybody would ever need something fancier than this.
