ghd, Helios Professional Hair Dryer
Every great hair look starts with a great blow dry, and the iconic Helios Professional Hair Dryer ($335) will help you get there. When ghd launched its updated Helios in 2021, Tech Radar announced that it “changed the game”. It’s since become a category-defining product.
The Helios is the result of eight years of competitor analysis, design, and technology — and it shows.
The product is “faster, lighter, and quieter” than other tools on the market. The Helios takes just one minute and six seconds to rough dry hair, and two minutes and 20 seconds to completely style.
With 15% off right now for ghd’s AfterPay Day sale, consider this a “game-changing” add-to-cart.
ghd, Platinum Styler
If you’re an older millennial, ghd hair straighteners might take you back to crowding around the girls’ bathroom after school, sharing the one ghd styler in your friend group. The new ghd straighteners are even more clever, although you may still need to share them with your friends.
The ghd Platinum Styler, ($395) is one of the smartest hair straighteners around.
With “predictive technology”, this hair tool really gets to know you. It adjusts to your hair thickness and the speed at which you style. If you’re someone who consistently sleeps through your alarm, and needs to whip through your hair routine, consider the ghd Platinum Styler your new bestie.
You can also create curls and waves with ease — the unique wishbone hinge and round barrel make manipulating the straightener a cinch.
ghd, Max Styler Wide Plate Straightener
You haven’t seen a hair straightener like this before. If you have long, thick hair and find straightening takes forever and a year, the ghd Max Wide Plate Straightener ($355) is the tool for you.
We came across this hair tool backstage at fashion week, where stylists were producing hundreds of long, straight “glass” blow-drys. This incredible, time-saving tool features 70 percent wider plates than traditional hair straighteners.
ghd, Unplugged Cordless Hair Straightener
With hybrid co-lithium technology and dual-zone heaters, Unplugged delivers a super quick, hair-safe styling experience. The tool is also shorter, so it won’t take up room in your luggage, and can even be popped in your handbag. And you can save 15% off the $500 price tag until Sunday, March 19.
ghd, Curve Thin Curling Wand
The super-slender Curve Thin Curling Wand ($270) launched in early 2022 and has been a staple for us ever since.
This curling wand features a minuscule 14mm barrel, perfect for refining the smallest details, flipping a rogue fringe, and providing definition to tight curls and coils. The latter is how we saw it used most frequently at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week.
Have dead straight hair and longing for perm life but don’t want to drop that cash? This super slender wand is perfect for creating tight curls in heavy hair, (just give them some time to drop before you leave the house).
GHD, Creative Curl Wand
The Creative Curl Wand ($270) features a tapered wand that’s 23mm at the tip and 28mm at the barrel, which makes for the perfect subtle, beachy waves creates subtle beachy-waves.
If you have a shag, it’s a great option for flipping your fringe and creating a natural texture. Fast and easy to use, you’ll be ready in a flash.
ghd, Curve Classic, and Soft Curl Tongs
The classic hair flip is back, and this is the perfect tool to help you recreate it. The ghd Classic Curl Tong ($270) has a 26mm barrel for bouncy soft waves or flipped ends.
If you’re after an even softer wave, consider the ghd Soft Curl Tong ($270) with a 32mm ceramic barrel this will create looser waves – perfect for that “Gossip Girl” moment.
