    I got mine from my hairdressers because they buy them from suppliers he gave them to me the price the hairdressers paid which was cheaper than i would have had to have paid in a shop or online

    No fakes either. Official GHD's.

    A little of topic but, i want to get ghd's but ive heard a few times from friends that they break easily and dont last long

    one of my friends actually said 'mine always break but i dont care, i just buy another pair, their expensive but worth it' i was like fair enough!

    are they unreliable? i dont think their as bad as my friends say
    Yeah I've heard that too :dontknow: I'm actually considering Corioliss as an alternative; I've heard they're much better than GHDs.

    Don't bother, they're VERY over hyped. I didn't find them better than any other ceramics I've used, and I prefer my old school Remington Wet2straights tbh.

    This is true, you need to buy a new pair about once a year. Like your friend said they are worth it. All the girls in my family use GHD's and everyone's break after a year or so.



    You can get them from markets iv seen them, although personally i wouldnt buy anything so expencive, or anything eletrical from a market, but its up to you really.

    They had the official seals - except for the one box that was used to prove that they were real. It had all the warranty and guarantee papers. No dodgy logo or knock off designs. They were some limited edition ones.

    Personally if I paid £100 for something I would expect it to last longer than a year...

    Erm I didn't look at that tbh. But I know they were the GHD Rare and GHD Purple Limited Edition. There was also a pink one don't know the name.

    That stall is quite the power seller - it gets some good stuff. It could just be possible that they managed to get a hold of a few at some low prices. Even the salons will get them dirt cheap.

    i borught mine from my hairdressers 3 years ago , but you know at shopping centres people set up stalls selling hair products like straughtners and curlers, some of them are reeeeally good
    like jose eber and amika etc, and theyr much cheaper than on the website although they do say its X price for today only thats rubbish, but still cheaper than what it would cost you and i think theyr amazing
