ghd has been the market leader for hair straighter for the past decade or so. In terms of quality, durability and results delivery, one can’t fault ghd; hence all reputable hair salons here in Australia swears by them and uses them.
For the longest time, ghd has been quite conservative in terms of their product line up. It was all about the hair straighteners, hair styling products and brushes/combs.
Then last year we were introduced to ghd hair dryer and this year BAM, hello ghd eclipse aka ghd 2.0. ghd aura which is their updated version of the hair dryer and now a full range of curling wands to add to the list. The ghd curve range comes in the form of tongs and wands featuring their signature tri-zone technology focusing in delivering curls that last all day and night and more importantly healthy looking hair finish.
Today, I will be reviewing the ghd Curve Classic Wave Wand. This wand is really unique as it is not your usual cylinder shaped wand; this is oval shaped instead. It is designed for longer hair to achieve deep waves and the glamorous hair finish.
ghd’s ceramic technology guarantees the hair is bring curled at the optimum temperature of 185°C throughout the barrel evenly so that hair is curled efficiently without damaging the hair.
The ghd curve classic wave wand has a 38mm – 26mm oval shaped barrel and a cool tip to provide a protective safe place to hold the hair in place while curling. There’s also a built-in safety stand allows the wand to stand during styling without damaging any surface.
Other brownie points for the wand includes, super quick to heat up, comes with sound effect to let you know if the wand is switched on and if it’s ready to use, has automatic sleep mode, long cord, universal voltage (can be used anywhere in the world) and it also comes with a limited edition rose gold heat mat and roll bag.
The only down side is that, mine did not come with a heat protective glove which caught me by surprise as heat styling wands minus a heat protective glove is an invitation for burnt fingers.
In terms of styling, I only need to hold each section of my hair 6-8 seconds depending on the size of each section wrapped around the wand. There’s a recommended option to spray hair spray over hair before styling to create even longer lasting curl but I find styling with the wand on hair with just a quick heat protectant spritz is great on its on.
Results! Natural wavy finish free of kinks.
