ghd original professional styler by ghd

free shipping on all australian orders.

ghd became a global household name almost overnight with the massive success of its innovative flat irons, which caught the attention of both professionals and everyday users. After years of tweaking and redevelopment, ghd released its original professional styler, previously known as the IV Straightener Styler Classic 24 mm. This must-have beauty tool is for anyone who wants to style their hair into curls, waves, or super sleekness.


What are the key features of the ghd original professional styler?

The multi-award-winning ghd original professional styler is the perfect first step into the world of professional haircare tools. The high-quality ghd stylers combine smooth ceramic plates with even heat distribution to allow the hair to glide through effortlessly. The result? A frizz-free and silky finish with minimal heat damage.

The 2.7 m swivel cord allows for easy handling, whether you’re creating poker-straight locks or opting for beachy waves. The new round barrel makes curling hair even easier. This hair iron puts safety first with Shiver and Sleep modes to prevent damage to the stylers themselves and surroundings.

ghd original professional stylers are incredibly versatile, so they are suitable for any hair type and length. And with an entry-level cost, they are an accessible option for professional salon-finish haircare.


Key features of the ghd original professional styler:

  • Professional straightening, waving, and curling
  • 24 mm ceramic plates
  • 2.7 m swivel cord
  • Universal voltage
  • Shiver and Sleep modes


What are Sleep and Shiver modes?

The ghd original professional styler includes both Sleep and Shiver mode, which help make this one of the safest hairstylers on the market. Sleep mode is one of ghd’s most popular features. This mode is integrated into all of ghd’s electrical tools to switch them off automatically after 30 minutes of inactivity.


Shiver mode is unique to the ghd original professional styler. This mode prevents the product from turning on when the surrounding temperature is below 7 C. This helps to protect the styler from damage through condensation.


Which temperature does this straightener function at?

The ghd original professional styler does not have a variable temperature control and instead functions at between 175 F and 185 F. Whilst other flat irons can go to much higher temperatures, ghd believes that ultra-high heat simply damages the internal structure of the hair and does not produce better results. An optimal temperature between 175 F to 185 F gets the job done without causing too much heat damage.


What hairstyles can be achieved with this straightener?

This classic straightener has become a bestselling product mainly because of its versatility. With the ghd IV,you can create curls and waves as well as straighten tresses. Some of the newer and more advanced hair stylers from ghd, such as the Gold and Platinum Straightener Stylers, may offer slightly faster results and shinier finishes. However, the original professional styler can still produce almost any look.

Great hair straightener - 16-01-2019 by

The GHD is the best. Fast to heat up and doesn’t damage your hair.

the best straightener - 15-01-2019 by

by far one of the best straighteners! Wouldn’t use any other brand.Definitely worth the price

Easy to use - 15-01-2019 by

I have super curly and frizzy hair. This straighter goes through my hair so easy. GHD is my #1 favorite hair styler brand.

Brilliant - Highly Recommended - 14-01-2019 by

Brilliant - Highly Recommended - Would never use any other brand! I love my GHD

Perfect - 07-01-2019 by

Classic perfect hair straightener, does an amazing job

Will never own another brand - 07-01-2019 by

I have had my ghd for 9 + years! Still going strong even with daily use! I’ve used friends other brand straighteners and nothing compares to the good old GHD

Iconic - 31-12-2018 by

I can't imagine using any other styler, to be honest. I've had mine for ten years now and it's still going strong.

Perfect straightener - 30-12-2018 by

This is an amazing straightener and is 10000% worth the money. My hair looks so healthy and shiny after using this and I don’t really feel the need to use heat protectant as it’s such great quality. If you’re thinking about it, do it! You won’t regret it.

can't live without it - 21-12-2018 by

I've had this hair straightener for 7 years and hasn't skipped a beat!! my hair actually feel healthier after using it. great for curling your hair as well

Classic - 17-12-2018 by

I have thick wavy hair and when I straighten it with these it lasts until I wash it again

Best straightener, lasts forever! - 15-12-2018 by

Everyone always asks me how I get my hair so straight. I've had this straightener for almost 10 years and it is still as good as the day I bought it. It curls hair also, and straightens very straight.

I have thick, naturally wavy hair to my shoulders - this straightens my whole head in 10 minutes.

The OG - 13-12-2018 by

I just bought the original ghd again to replace my previous one – which I got 10 years of daily use out of!

Can't live without it! - 12-12-2018 by

I have no idea where I'd be without my GHD. They last for years and always leave my hair looking shiny, straight and healthy!

The golden oldie - 11-12-2018 by

This straightener is the holy grail of straighteners

Amazing! - 10-12-2018 by

I have dry, wavy/curly hair and I find that my ghd works super well - doesn't leave my hair feeling drier, and does a great job at getting it straight without having to go over multiple times. Definitely worth the investment :)

Invest - 27-11-2018 by

Great, lasts 10 years!

LOVE this product - 27-11-2018 by

I use this daily to curl my hair, doesn’t damage and leaves it shiny. Wouldn’t use any other brand anymore. Warms super quickly aswell.

Everyone needs to own this! - 26-11-2018 by

I've previously bought a bunch of tools for styling at low-mid range prices and ghd is really quality - they're friendly enough for beginners and the results are effortless + amazing. There are tutorials online that can help you if you get stuck!

Great - 23-11-2018 by

Have always had this GHD straightener, have only replaced mine once over the space of 8 years. Works perfectly for a straight style or to make curls.

Best hair straightener - 22-11-2018 by

I have thick hair. I purchased this styler recently and am so happy with the results. One go over a section will straighten my hair just they way i want. I have noticed that it hardly damages my hair at all compared to other stylers. This is definitely an investment which will last for quite some time. I would overall definitely recommend this.

Great original - 21-11-2018 by

I’ve used a few straighteners over the years but I always come back to the ghd original. Great product

Great curls - 16-11-2018 by

I recently purchased this to attempt to make my hair wavy and summer fresh. I struggled the first few times, but thanks to some Youtube research, I'm now curling like a pro. It's a very simple device, but switches itself off if you leave it alone of too long, which is great and does the job well. I have very thick , long hair, so I wouldn't recommend using it to straighten the lot, but if you have thinner or shorter hair it would work fine, and for curling, it's great for all hair types.

Love this Straightener! - 13-11-2018 by

I am absoultely in love with this GHD Hair Straightener - it straightens my long, thick hair with ease and easily glides through my hair. It heats up within minutes and does an amazing job of giving me instant slick, glossy, straight locks! Very happy :)

Amazing Product - 09-11-2018 by

I had always had cheaper Hair Straighteners but then finally decided to splurge on a GHD. Best thing I ever did. Between myself and my two daughters this straightener gets used practically daily. No faults no issues just either perfectly straight or curled hair. Years on and its still perfect. Even though its expensive it was worth every cent. Could not recommend highly enough!!

The best straightener - 05-11-2018 by

I’ve been using this product for over ten years. Prior to this I used cheap straighteners a couple of times and found that they ripped through my medium/fine hair. The GHD glides through my hair leaving it smooth and shiny and lasts for years. I use it to straighten or curl. This size works well for either. I wouldn’t use any other product.

Fantastic - 31-10-2018 by

My first proper straightener and I’m so happy I brought this! Before I was using cheaper $20 ones that I didn’t realise were wreaking havoc on my hair. This one straightens so well in one go and leaves my hair smooth. So so happy with this!!! I have pretty thick hair and I find that I can go over sections once without having to repeat it in order to have that super sleek look. Love!

amazing quality! - 29-10-2018 by

I purchased this GHD hair straightner over 3 years ago, and still works to an excellent standard! this straightener heats up in seconds, which i love !!!

amazing quality, and a good investment.

I would high recommend for anyone as a gift or a treat for yourself!

I can achieve so many looks other than straight hair to light waves and heavy curls!!
love it.

Iconic - 29-10-2018 by

Ghd was the first ever premium straightener that I owned. I used to love this brand but have to say that I’m disappointed that the products are not as good as they used to be.

Loyal GHD Customer - 25-10-2018 by

I have been using GHD straightening irons ever since I first started straightening my hair (10 years ago) and I have had the best results from this brand.

Purchasing from adore beauty, was easy and efficient and I would definitely purchase again.

The GHD range definitely provides outstanding results for any look that you are trying to achieve, and I find it less harmful on your hair compared to other brands.

This is a product that most of my friends already have, and one that I would recommend for people that do not.

Classic - 23-10-2018 by

I've had my GHD hair straightener for more years that I can count and it has travelled with me to many places. This product has truly withstood the test of time, not only does it still perform beautifully it has never had any issues. In fact I want to buy a new hair straightener but the fact this one still performs amazingly is stopping me from doing so! Definitely money well spent.

Cant live without - 22-10-2018 by

I love this straightener. I use mine to make soft curls and I have a short bob style cut and I find easy to use even on my short hair. I take it everywhere with me, even took it to Europe, couldn't have gone without it. The curl holds really well all day and night. and makes my hair shiny and smooth
I would love a version that is half the size for easier packing for travel but otherwise it doesn't bother me too much and I make it fit

Worth the price tag! - 22-10-2018 by

This is my favorite hair straightener. I've had it for years and it's still good as new and I use it several times a week. It leaves my hair feeling and looking straight and smooth. Love it!

favourite straightener! - 18-10-2018 by

I love this straightener. I have straight hair anyway but I use this to get out kinks from sleeping on wet hair or hair ties leaving a mark. It's super quick to achieve good results. It's also easy to create waves with the straightener too.

Couldn't live without it! - 12-10-2018 by

I got my first GHD original (and I mean original) when I was about 14 or 15 and it lasted me until I was 25! Thats ten years! My mum had the same experience and hers lasted even through loads of trips overseas and quite a few drops.
I then got a competitor brand that lasted 1 year before breaking, so I reverted back to GHD and have since had my new classic for 2 years and going strong!

The pros - It heats up A LOT and quickly, cools quickly, and has a smooth flat and good sized plate. The classic is really all you need.

The cons - the only con is actually a pro also, that it gets super hot, the other ranges dont heat as much but it means you take longer to straighten or curl. The downer is that if you have thin, dry, bleached hair, it can cause snaps and breaks because of the sheer heat being applied!

Love it - 11-10-2018 by

Have always loved these hair straighteners and this one does not disappoint

Stands the test of time - 04-10-2018 by

I have had my original GHD styler for 7 years now. It still takes only seconds to heat up and straightens my hair in one slick move. With some practice this styler is good for doing curls and waves also. I needed to watch some of my hairdresser friends and YouTube videos until I got it right. This straightener doesn't ruin your hair. Products that are made to be used pre-heat work really well, to help the hair hold it's style.

ICONIC - 04-10-2018 by

Nothing beats the original GHDs! They last forever and can be used for both straightening and curling. Don't purchase the limited edition versions! I have a gold limited edition version, but always find myself going back to the original. GHD also has great customer service if something happens to your straightener.

Long lasting quality product - 02-10-2018 by

My ghds have lasted over 10 years! They still heat up very quickly and produce amazing results. Initially pricey but considering how long they last it’s good value for money. You can also curl or wave your hair with these thanks to the round edges.

Great for straightening and curls - 13-09-2018 by

I have brought limited edition ghds over the years but I always prefer to use my original ghd. It’s great for straightening and also curling

GHD - 11-09-2018 by

Still loving GHD quality after all these years. Heats up so fast and leave a smooth shiny finish

the OG - 09-09-2018 by

The original straightener by GHD is definitely the best. In the past I have bought other editions ghd have brought out, however they are never as good as the original. So reliable, easy and long lasting!

Well worth it - 28-08-2018 by

Beautiful design that is easy to use. This straightener is extremely quick to heat up and works wonders on my frizzy hair. Added feature of shutting itself off gives me peace of mind so I don't have to worry about if I accidentally left it on or not. You won't regret purchasing this product.

The best! - 22-08-2018 by

Love this straightener. Works so well on my frizzy hair. Love that it switches off if I forget to turn it off! 10/10 from me

The all in one styler - 20-08-2018 by

Throw everything else away - this does it all! Straightens, curls, bends into waves, neatens fly away strands. Don't buy any other straightener!

Perfect! - 18-08-2018 by

Love this classic - it heats up fast and doesn't catch on your hair.

All time favourite - 15-08-2018 by

Nothing does a better job! Heats quickly and is light and super easy to curl and straighten with. 10/10 recommend.

The best. - 15-08-2018 by

Ghd are the ultimate in hair straighteners. Have tried several brands over the years, in terms of performance, reliabity and outcome ghd win hands down.

The best! - 14-08-2018 by

nothing can beat GHD hair straighteners! Even with my extremely thick hair I can straighten my hair so quickly and easily without damaging my hair.

Great Straightener - 14-08-2018 by

This is a great product which straightens my hair effectively. I both curl and straighten my hair and have tried a variety of different brands. While I think ghd is really good, it is quite expensive and there are other straighteners out there that do just as good a job for a fraction of the price. But if you have the money, go for it! This certainly won't disappoint.

IN LOVE!!!! - 13-08-2018 by

I cannot express how much I love this!! I have curly/frizzy hair and this really does its job.

Great quality and value for money - 13-08-2018 by

I have had this hair straighter for so many years, it heats up quickly, straightens my hair perfectly and is easy to use. Great for curling too!

Lasted Years - 02-08-2018 by

My GHDS have just given up after 9 years!! Amazing!

GHD wins again - 26-07-2018 by

After a few weeks of researching, watching YouTube tutorials on the top 3/5 straighteners I decided to go with ghd again. Just can’t fault it. Heats quick, curls my stubborn hair well and glides easily with no hair getting stuck in the plates.

The only brand worth buying - 24-07-2018 by

I’ve tried many brands over the year and was hesitant to spend the money on a GHD but it has honestly been the best decision I have ever made! I have two in different sizes which I have had for over 8 years and they are still going strong!

Best on the market! - 20-07-2018 by

I had my first GHD for 9 years before upgrading. This is by FAR the best hair styling tool and brand on the market. I only upgraded as the heat point started to drop. My straightener survived countless overseas trips and the carry case it comes with is also so useful.

AMAZING product!

Best Straightner - 20-07-2018 by

I have had my GHD for about 8 years and can honestly say it still works as good as the first day I bought it! Really great value for money and last s the distance!!

Best! - 18-07-2018 by

is there anything better then a GHD? Down pat the best hair straightener I have ever owned, I will never go to another brand. I love that they are getting cheaper too as the years go by!

Can't go without this. - 12-07-2018 by

I have had my GHD for about 8 years or so and it's still as good as new. I don't use it more than once a week and I don't do severe straightening where it's overly done. Doing this I have had no damage to my long hair. I do look after my hair well though.

A quality investment.

Fabulous - 10-07-2018 by

I've had my GHD for about 8 years now and its still going strong! I've tried many other hair straighteners and nothing compares to my GHD! It keeps my hair straight for days and makes it so soft and dead straight! I've even dropped it multiple times (including stepped on it) and its still survived and works as well as it did the day i got it!

Perfect - 10-07-2018 by

this is the original and i always stick to it.

Oldie but a goodie - 09-07-2018 by

This has been old faithful for many years for both straightening and curling my hair. This styler heats up quickly and maintains constant heat. It works effortlessly on my hair to straighten it. It usually only takes one swipe across the hair to achieve this. I have fine naturally straight-ish hair that gets the odd wave in it at the back. I also used this styler for years to create soft beachy waves. More recently, I've found the Rusk Miracurl works better for this, but I will continue to use this to straighten my hair.

Incredibly straight - 09-07-2018 by

The GHD straightener is incredible. It consistency provides perfectly styled hair. This hair styler makes the hair lovely, straight and smooth. I would recommend using this product with a heat protectant to preserve the condition of your hair. This is really the only option I would look at to purchase a straightener as they work so great and have a long life span.

One and only - 05-07-2018 by

The GHD has always been and always will be my favourite and only straightener! I have massive curly and thick hair and it's the only one that can get it so sleek and straight! Absloutly love it!

Good Hair Days - 03-07-2018 by

Seven odd years ago, I gave my GHD away, as I figured that I didn't need it having naturally straight hair. Fast forward to the present and the GHD is once again a staple feature of my bathroom vanity. After being reacquainted with the GHD through a friend, I realised how much easier it is to achieve waves, curls, bounce and dimension with the GHD IV Professional Styler than it was with the ancient curling wand I had been using.

My first GHD lasted five or so years with everyday use - I'm only using my current styler every once and a while, so I expect I'll have it for many years to come.

Used to be better - 02-07-2018 by

I had the original ghd from ten years ago which I loved but they just aren't the same anymore. Takes longer to get my hair properly straight and the straightened effect doesn't last very long (I have thick, frizzy hair). If you are willing to spend the money, there are better options out there (Muk for similar price, Cloud 9 for more $ but > quality).

Long time lover of GHD - 28-06-2018 by

I have hair that is quite frizzy, and at times - very curly. I find this straightener works really well, and leaves my hair looking straight and shiny. It is a nice size to get into harder to reach areas as well.

Came from having the 'INSTYLER' to this beauty, good investment - 25-06-2018 by

Thick long hair is a choice you have to bear with as it comes with many perks, but just as many UNperks. This straightener straightens effortlessly, my frizzy wavy thick past-the-butt length hair, so in love. Just wish I had purchased a wider plate but still worth the money. It is an investment

Great hair straightener! - 20-06-2018 by

I own a few GHD's is but this is my favourite one! I have wavy fine hair and this has straight now helps me straighten my hair quickly and makes my hair sleek. I use it after blowdrying my hair to add the finishing touches and make it straight.

Best straightener I have used! - 19-06-2018 by

I have had my GHD for years and it still works perfectly on my thick hair! It glides through my hair for easy use and can also be used to curl hair. Simple to clean and maintain. Would recommend 100% if you’re in the market for a new hair straightener.

Best purchase I have made! - 15-06-2018 by

I bought my GHD in 2010 to tame my thick hair and I have used it ever since. No dramas ever with it. Smooth hair in seconds. BEST PURCHASE EVER. Recommended A++

straight hair in seconds! - 14-06-2018 by

These straighteners heat up in seconds and get the job done without messing about. They work quick and effectively with all day hold - great for curling too!

Original and the best - 08-06-2018 by

You can't fault a GHD- perfect straight sleek hair or bouncy curls every time!
It also keeps the frizz away from my curly hair.
I've had mine for years and never a problem.

LOVE LOVE LOVE - 04-06-2018 by

Brought this a couple months ago and it’s legit my go to straightener that I use on a daily!!!!! Highly recommend

Great Price For Straightener - 02-06-2018 by

I recently just purchased this straightener and I was already in love before I even turned it on. It is sleek and lightweight and didn't get tangled ONCE! Highly recommend!

Definitely worth the money - 24-05-2018 by

Love my GHD! Seriously such a good investment and i would likely recommend it to all my friends!

A long-term investment - 23-05-2018 by

I have had my ghd styler for almost 10 years now and it's still going strong. I naturally have lots of curly auburn hair and it gets through it with no problem, leaving it feeling silky soft every time. I clean buildup of dirt off the styler using alcohol on a cotton pad which is what I account for it lasting so long. I also ensure that I use a heat protectant before every use and you are unable to control the temperature of this iron and it can easily burn your hair.

So happy - 08-05-2018 by

So happy with this hair straightener, so happy with how fast my order came!

Alway loved - 08-05-2018 by

Second 2 buyer of a GHD my last one lasted me years and years. Only reason I’m purchasing another is because my cat chewed on the power cord. Nothing else to say but love love love

Favourite straightener - 30-04-2018 by

Have been using this straightener for 10+ years. After 8 years using the same appliance, I decided it was finally time to uprgrade. Will never use any other brand, GHD is great. Love the standby feature when I am not using it. Very handy for someone like me who always forgets to turn it off before leaving the house.

Literally amazing - 29-04-2018 by

I absolutely love my GHD! I received mine as a gift 7 years ago and its still working just as good. It heats up very quickly and it gives you the ability to straighten or curl your hair in no time. I have never noticed any creasing or denting in my hair when I curl or straighten it. Would recommend the investment in one of these :)

Best straightener available - 03-04-2018 by

This is definitely the best hair straightener on the market. It heaps up fast, straightens hair so fast and easily. Leaves hair smooth and shiny. Would definately recommend it.

Life changing! - 19-03-2018 by

After 10+ years with my trusty but old-fashioned model GHD, it was time to upgrade and I'm so glad I did! This GHD does an amazing job of smoothing my frizzy hair without overheating or making it feel dry. Also, thank you to Adore Beauty for getting it to me so quickly - received my package within 2 days of ordering with the standard shipping option. Can't recommend this enough!

Very impressed - 15-03-2018 by

I don't use a straightener often, trying to minimise damage to my dry/coloured hair, but I'm never disappointed with my ghd. Such a good investment product I'm sure I'll have for years on end. Heats up and cools down quickly too, which is good with a toddler in the house!

Best Straightener - 14-03-2018 by

I have owned a GHD ever since they first launched and would NEVER think of buying anywhere else! The first GHD I owned lasted me over 10 years and always left my hair straight for days and undamaged even as the straightener got older. I love the versatility of this straightener which allows me the option of having beautifully straight hair or the option of adding curls and waves all within one device. Absolutely love this straightener and always recommend to my friends and family!

The Best on the Market - 06-03-2018 by

GHD is the best hair straightener styler on the market. Love how it heats up so quickly and then I can flat iron my curls so they are more loose and wavy. Great switch off heat feature which is handy when sometimes you forget to turn it off.
Sleek, light and easy to use. I would only recommend this hair iron - can't live without it. Thanks GHD.

LOVE, love, love! - 06-03-2018 by

I have damaged hair from years of using hair straighteners that fluctuated heat temperature or constantly caught my hair. The GHD IV professional style has NEVER caught my hair and has helped as I get my hair back to health. I'll never settle for anything less again.

Amazing! - 01-03-2018 by

Absolutely love this product! My hair is perfectly straight and it lasts all day, also works well to create curls. This is my second GHD hair straightener, i will never buy any other brand.

Would recommend - 27-02-2018 by

This is definitely the best straightener I’ve ever bought. I like that you can easily create curls without buying a curler. Only thing is that it only has one heat setting but it’s good for my thick hair

The best - 12-02-2018 by

Having tried numerous straighteners over the years GHD really are the best. I only use for my fringe now so these are perfect for me as I don't need the more advanced straighteners. All my friends use too. Save your money and just buy GHD...better for your hair and they last forever.

Great item - 24-01-2018 by

It is fantastic I have thick long hair and it does not take long to straighten my hair heats up so fast

Can always count on GHD! - 15-11-2017 by

i did consider other products however I always end up back at GHD. They always last me years and always do exactly as theyre meant to... straighten!

Nothing Compares - 14-09-2017 by

Best hair straightener hands down. My hair is sleek and shiny- salon fresh every day!

Best purchase - 21-07-2017 by

Had been struggling to find a hair straightener that would straighten my thick curly hair, l had tried a lot of straightener's in the past but never got good results, until now after purchasing the ghd l can recommend this as the best.

my favourite straightner on the market. - 05-06-2015 by

I use my ghd every day and have been a huge fan of theirs for years. Its always smooth, heat is consistent and so easy to use. I've tried Cloud Nine but i always go back to ghd. the warning beep feature when you've left it on has saved my straightner and bathroom counter countless times!
