    Currently I use my sisters GHD straighteners to straighten my frnge (yes im male) because when i do it looks pretty cool, and i then quickly heat up all my other hair and make it look fluffy with them. My hair is naturally quite straight but they add a nice effect I think.

    Now, I should invest in some, but I dont want to pay £90 for a pair, are there any brands and models that can possibly give pretty similar results to GHDs at a fraction of the price?

    Thanks

    BaByliss make good ones but ultimately, regardless of the brand, it comes down to how much you are willing to pay.

    Get a hair cut, if it gets to the point you need straighteners it's a clue you need a hair cut. Justin Beiber's hair wraps around his face and looks wierd, I dunno why people would want to look like that.

    I use toni and guy, I got mine for around £30 and I actually really like them.

    Of course, after Christmas day you'll probably get a better price, good luck!

    Hey
    I think Babyliss is a pretty good brand for straighteners and they've got loads of straighteners that you can choose from! Ideally, I'd get one with a swivel cord so you can move the straightener as you style easily like a GHD.

    P.s. I don't think guys using hair straigteners are gay lol

    Hope that helped!

    It's a sad day for society when people find it socially acceptable for men to straighten their hair.

    Straighteners are quite ironic, seeing as they make you gayer.

    I've always had remmington ones, but I've never felt the need to try GHDs as my hair is only a bit wavy. Remmington straightners are fairly cheap, you can get them from Boots, superdrug and some supermarkets (I think I've seen them in Sainsburys).

    Hair straighteners don't make you look gay, gay guys have more style than that. They just make you look like an **** with a rubbish haircut.

    My brother used to steal my straighteners all the time for his fringe, until he got a pair of those miniature straighteners. They seem to do the job just as well, are generally cheaper (I think the Babyliss ones are about £12-15?) and are right size if your just doing your fringe!
    And no, he's not gay
