You’re really gonna be in total eclipse (of the heart) with GHD’s newest hair flat iron, the GHD Eclipse. It’s perfect, it’s easy to use, it’s fast and it’s hot!
As Allure’s Best of Beauty Awardee 2014, you know you can’t go wrong. This straightener deliver gorgeous, super shiny hair in seconds, and as GHD said, it can last up to 12 hours! How badass!
GHD calls this styler as groundbreaking. Developed by their very own scientific crew, GHD’s eclipse boasts a tri-zone technology, which basically spreads three sensors on each flat iron plate, that makes heating a lot faster, more even and consistent. The styler has only one heat temperature setting and maintained at 365 degrees Fahrenheit, which GHD claims as the ideal temperature for hairstyling that produces best and long-lasting result. Also, a lot of people said that this is the optimal temperature in order to not damage hair. Anything beyond that is scary. Well, better be on the safe side, eh?
It comes with a 9 ft swivel cord for ease of use and a cooler body compared to most flat irons nowadays. I find that really awesome since you don’t need to be scared that you might get burned while styling your hair.
There is only one switch on this thing, which beeps upon turning on and then wait a split second, I mean really split second and you will hear a slightly short series of beeps which signals that the styler is already hot enough and ready to go. It also comes with a sleep mode which basically switches off after 30 minutes of not being used
What I love about this is the fact that it’s quick and easy to use, no brainer at all. It heats up really fast and delivers a good heat that is hot enough to style a hair in just one stroke. In fact, I find it to be very hot. Yet it’s good to know that the heat setting is on the safe side.
Also love the aerogel insulation, which makes up for the cooler body on this styler. It’s easier, faster and safer to store. You can just pack it up without waiting for it to cool down. The styler also comes with a silicon cap protection to prevent burns.
Overall, the styler is very light, the plates glide well, compact (can be placed inside any standard flat iron pouch), fast and easy to use. I highly recommend this product to everyone who’s always on the go.
You can purchase this product at any GHD selling beauty stores or local salons, or go online here
Tip: This styler may cost you an arm and a leg, maybe even a kidney, joke! But for real, if you don’t wanna pay full price, then sign into GHD’s newsletter, wait for any special holiday or events whatsoever, like Thanksgiving, then check your email for GHD promos and discounts, which they usually do sometimes, and then purchase the product. Upon purchasing, they’ll give you a 10% discount on your next purchase, so might as well use that to purchase one of their heat protectant spray seen in this review, (and was also reviewed here).
Note # 1: GHD takes quite a long time to ship, (don’t be dismayed), especially during holidays, you can’t even contact customer service on the phone, they’ll tell you their voicemail is full. Hmmp! But you can contact their customer service by email, which is very responsive.
