GHD deals: Straighteners, hair dryers and a curling wand are up to 25% off in the Amazon Black Friday sale

As part of Amazon's early Black Friday deals, the £189 Platinum Plus has been reduced to £143 – a saving of £42

It does seem like GHD straighteners are on offer more than they’re not, but it’s rare for the Platinum Plus styler to be included in this mix, particularly for under £150.

As part of Amazon’s early Black Friday deals, the £189 Platinum Plus has been reduced to £143 – a saving of £46. This reduction applies to both the white and black models. It’s common for the black styler to be on sale, but the white one is rarely reduced so if you’ve had your eye on this, be quick! 

The Platinum Plus is touted as the world’s first “smart” pair of straighteners. Fitted with so-called “ultra-zone” and “predictive” technology, it has sensors built into both floating plates that monitor heat 250 times a second. GHD claims these sensors can determine the thickness of your hair and the speed at which you’re styling so that the power delivered is adjusted accordingly, giving better results.

As our writer, Victoria, explains in her review: “On face value, the GHD Platinum Plus styler looks just like a pair of regular hair straighteners, which makes it hard to justify spending such a vast sum. However, after using the stylers for some time, the distinctions became obvious and I found it difficult going back to the Original, or indeed any other styler I’d used before.

“Their superior performance and usability made my morning hair routine effortless and enjoyable. Plus, GHD products really do go the distance, so although it may feel like a hefty investment, the money you’ll save replacing cheaper rival models, or on hair cuts and products to treat your damaged hair, can make the £189 price tag feel a little less painful.”

If you don’t want or need all the bells and whistles of the Platinum Plus, the GHD Original IV is also on sale. It usually costs £109 but can be yours for just £81.

Elsewhere in the GHD Amazon Black Friday sale, you can get the GHD Helios hair dryer for £130 – down from £159. This discount applies to all colourways, including plum, black, navy and white.

The Helios’ predecessor, the GHD Air, is £89 versus its RRP of £99. That may be a small reduction, but it’s not one that can be sniffed at for one of the best hair dryers around.

The GHD Max Styler usually costs £149, but is on sale for £110.

There is also a discount on the various GHD curling tongs, including the GHD Curve Classic Curl Tong, the GHD Curve Soft Curl Tong, GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand and the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand.

Each one retails for £129 but they’re all on sale for £102 for a limited time. If you’re a keen TikTok fan, these curling wands would be great for the ponytail curl trend that seems to be proving popular across the site.
