I've finally decided to ask for a decent pair of hair straighteners for Xmas. I've never used a pair before, so can any gurlies, or boys (~_^) make some recommendations?

I've been looking at the Babyliss Pro 230, simply because I saw an advert for them last night. Is there anything on the market that is as good but cheaper?

Thanks in advance.

ceramics are the best... in my opinion. They seem to glide easier and pull less hair out if you get it caught,

Better to spend out on some straighteners that will last you forever then several pairs of rubbish ones :p:

I use the Remington - £20 and they're pretty good. If you're obsessed with straightening your hair and NEED TO DO IT EVERY DAY OR YOU THINK YOU LOOK UGLY - get GHDs. Otherwise, a cheaper set will do.

my sister bought the sleek and curl (i think they are remington) ones the other day. they come with a dvd with tips on how to use them to straighten and curl your hair. slim straighteners are best if you want to be able to experiement with different styles e.g. flicks , curls, waves and she said they work really well.

GHDs are the best, my bro got me them last year for my b'day!

I'm not a girl, but my friend uses GHD's and the results are very spectacular. Worth the extra money.

I agree with the above! GHD's are honestly worth the extra! Ive had mines since Oct, and they are the BEST! Bear in mind that I have the frizziest thickest hair, so to me they are a godsend. I would defo reccomend GHD's. =)

If you look on ebay you can pick up GHDs for about £70. So it's worth having a look! I have had mine for 2 years and they are amazing. I have thick, wavy hair and it takes a maximum of 10 minutes to get it poker straight. Also, because they are better quality they hardly cause your hair any damage if used correctly. Honestly they are so worth the money!

GHD's are a gift from God for me! I have curly, frizzy thick hair and they make it all sleek and smooth, def. worth the money but like someone else said, you can pick them up on ebay for about £70 I think

Yes, T3's are very good. Again, they are quite pricey but well worth the money

I bought a Nicky Clarke set a few weeks back consisting of straighters, a hair drier, and curling tongs... only really wanted the tongs and the drier as have straightners already, but they wrk pretty well. Whole set was only something like £30 as in the sale... think it was supposed to be £75ish...

i had my GHDs 6 month before they just stopped working. they didnt break but they just didnt seem to straighten any more. a few friends have also reported this problem too. at the moment i have some fransen ones which arent ceramic but a by far the best straighteners i have ever had (and thats a few) they were £45. i agree remington are good from what friends have said too. i think if your going to go more expensive kodo are quite good and correct me if im wrong but i heard they are a branch of GHD
