Review: ghd air Hairdryer

I have loved ghd straighteners ever since I bought my first pair back in 2002 and now a decade later, they have brought out it's perfect partner: ghd air. If you didn't know, ghd stands for 'good hair day'. You may remember that I blogged about the launch of the high spec new ghd air hairdryer hailed as the 'Aston Martin of hair care' be prepared to be blown away!

It has been developed in conjunction with professional styling experts, the ghd air is designed to help you unlock the secret to a gorgeous salon blow dry, every day. I have been using my trusty Toni & Guy Hairdryer for over 10 years and at the time it was the best hairdryer on the market, and as you can see there is no comparison to the new ghd air. I was definitely long overdue a trade in for a newer model! 

Featuring a sleek design, powerful professional 2100 watt AC motor for the fastest blow-dry ever and advanced ionic technology, it delivers exceptionally fast drying and styling while helping to reduce frizz, leaving your hair soft and silky. An extra long power cable for flexibility, two sizes of concentrator nozzle, ionic technology for an effortlessly frizz-free and smoother finish, and variable heat and speed settings, plus a cold shot, make a salon-style blow dry  achievable every day. Ultimately sleek and stylish, the specifically designed ergonomic shape gives you total control over your style creation – whilst looking elegantly chic at the same time. An ideal tool to help create a salon look at home, the new ghd air boasts the following benefits:

Advanced Ionic Technology: for reduced frizz and a silkier, softer finish
Cool shot button: for a quick blast of cool air to fix your look in place
Salon strength AC motor: for more powerful drying
2 concentrator nozzles: helping to create a wide variety of styles
Ergonomic design: for easy handling and maximum control

The large packaging box is chic and perfect to store all your hair tools or hair bits and bobs. The ghd air itself is compact and sleek, but well made and solid with lovely chrome detailing. The most amazing thing was it took less than 2 minutes to dry my long, frizzy curly hair and that wasn't on the highest heat setting! Normally it would take a good 10-15 minutes on the highest heat setting. 

It definitely helped to reduce frizz in fact I didn't really need to smooth my hair afterwards with my straighteners which is unheard of! It looked like I had visited the hair fairy and I just roughly dried my hair rather than using a bristle brush. I love that it has different heat settings and speeds and a cool shot and the extra long 3M cord is very handy if you ever have to plug in the hairdryer and the mirror is across the room! Overall I am suitably impressed with the ghd air, and my old hairdryer will be donated to the charity shop.

The ghd air costs £99 and is available now from, and Feel Unique Have you tried the ghd air? Would love to hear your thoughts.
