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.

  • 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.
