    My sister has asked for hair straighteners for christmas. I don't use straighteners, have no idea where to start, and i'm meant to be going shopping with my mother tomorrow to get some.

    I have a budget of about £30
    She has thin, straightish hair anyway.
    She likes the idea of being able to curl it.

    I know there are probably thousands of threads, but a quick search i couldn't see anything specific.

    Cn anyone please help with suggestions of brands and where to get them. I think we'll be going to lakeside or bluewater.

    Thankyou (and sorry if in the wrong place)

    I was about to suggest GHDs, but that obviously wouldn't be helpful.

    Before GHDs I used Remington ones which were ok.

    I'd advice asking a Boots or somewhere like that, the assistants are usually pretty helpful. A test of good straighteners is opening them up and seeing if there is a gap between the plates. If there is they're not gunna be that good.

    Babyliss and Remington are good, if her hair is quite straight anyway she won't really need the temperature to be too high on them
