ghd Gold Series Rich Ruby Metallic Styler Review and Photos

I have high maintenance hair. It’s dry, wavy, frizzy (and sometimes poofy) and just generally never does what I want it to do. And that’s why a good heat styler is a must have for me to tame my not-so-well-behaved tresses. When I got the opportunity to try out the ghd Gold Series Professional 1″ styler, I was more than happy to say yes….hoping to find my new hair BFF and I did! Read on for the full scoop…..

Not gonna lie, I’m a sucker for great packaging and if you’re anything like me, this beautifully packaged baby is sure to make a great first impression! And the rich ruby metallic finish of the styler is just as nice!!(they also have a shimmering silver in this limited edition metallic collection)

ghd Gold Series Professional 1″ styler gets the job done and done very well! As usual, I straightened my hair in small sections and only had to run the flat iron over each section twice. The styler’s ultra smooth snag-free plates glide effortlessly through hair and I was done in only about 6 – 7 minutes which is a huge plus! The result – silky-smooth, shiny and frizz-free hair that stayed that way for the whole day! The styler also didn’t leave my hair weighed down or dull. It felt like I just came home from the hair salon! Here are the before and after pics……

The flat iron also comes with a heat-resistant quilted styler bag with heat mat. The only thing that’s missing is the adjustable temperature control settings. Although I had no issues with the single temperature setting, it’s always nice to have a few options to select from according to one’s requirements.

The ghd Gold Series Professional 1″ styler in metallic ruby finish (limited edition) retails for $225. Pick it up at They offer free US shipping on all flat irons with order tracking included!
