    I've just had my hair cut into a bob, and im not very good with a hair dryer but can use straighteners, up until now my hair has been fine with out them, but no i actually need to style my hair. So does anyone have any suggestions of straighteners for a reasonable price? preferably under £30

    thanks!

    hmm looking at online reviews a few people don't like tresemme ones, they all seem to like GHD's better but...there a bit pricey..

    GHD's are alot of money and i hated parting with 100 quid when i first got mine but honestly they are the best you can get and after having cheaper ones i could really tell the difference. They last ages too and turn themselfs off if you leave them on and go out ect. You wouldnt believe how good they really are unless you try them. I wouldnt use any other now. At Christmas you can usually trade your old ones in for £20 off too

    Babyliss pro 230. They're virtually the same as GHDs but cheaper and probably better, GHDs always seem to break.
    These are excellent though they have they same type of plates and stuff. Yep, only straighteners that actually straighten my hair and keep it like that throughout the day.

    Before I was given some GHDs, I had some vidal sassoon straighteners which were really really good. I think they were £20 in Superdrug. That was a year ago though :rolleyes:

    I really couldn't reccommend anything other than GHDs, they're pricey but are so worth saving up for. I spent more money on numerous cheaper versions than I did on the GHDs
    The best ones out of the cheaper ones I've had though, would be the tresseme ones. They half-straightened my hair but it was wavy after an hour. However my hair's really thick and wavy, if your's is thinner then they would be fine

    I have Carmen Hair Straight and Hydrate Ionic 230 Straighteners
    They are brilliant for my hair
    You can get them in argos for £19.59
    And they have like ions coming out of them so you're hair doesn't go static-y - which was a big problem for me before I go these and now my hair hardly ever gets static!

    My hair is long, thick and wavy and they get them really straight.
