My Thoughts:

Love! It brings me great joy every time a product performs exactly as advertised. The NuMe Vintage Styling Iron comes in a sturdy box with a magnetic flip-top. Inside, the iron is cradled in a plastic tray lined with velvet. I thought I heard angels singing when I flipped opened the box! I’m not kidding. It looked very grand. Printed on the inside of the box are several different ways you can use the Vintage Styling Iron.

The iron itself is also very sturdy and has a no-slip grip. The power cord is long, but not too long where it might get in your way and cause you to trip. Also, the power cord swivels so it doesn’t get twisted! The iron also comes with a velcro strap attached to the cord so you can neatly wind the cord up when you’re not using the iron. Not only that, there’s a built-in voltage converter so you can take the iron with you anywhere in the world! I like that the Vintage Styling Iron comes with a knob to control the temperature. The temperature ranges from 140°F-410°F. Because you can control the temperature, it’s perfect for all hair types. The Vintage Styling Iron also heats up very quickly. It took a little over a minute for it to heat up to the hottest temperature setting (410°F) so imagine how fast it will heat up to the lower temperatures. You’ll know it has reached the temperature you set it at when the little light on the handle goes from red to green. Not only is the iron perfect for all hair types, it also does more than straightening hair. Since the barrel of the iron is curved, you can use it to create wavy, curly, or voluminous hair too!

Straightening my hair with the Vintage Styling Iron was very easy and quick. I only had to go over my hair once, and it was straight. The flat iron didn’t get caught on my hair or tug on it. It went over my hair smoothly and cleanly and left my hair feeling very smooth, soft, and frizz-free.

ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron Review


ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron ($205) The ghd flat iron is the mother of all flat irons. I have been eying this flat iron for a couple of years now and saving up. I bought this ghd limited edition professional hairstyling iron from Normally, ghd flat irons cost about $200-$250 depending on the model. Beautyticket was selling the model I bought for $119.99 which included everything you see in the picture: ghd flat iron, how-to dvd, and the pouch. I actually got it cheaper than $119.99 because beautyticket was running an extra 15% off gifts and sets promo. When I saw the amazing (and rare!) discount, I knew I had to pounce to get my hands on this bad boy. I ended up paying 50% of the original cost. The most I have ever seen the ghd discounted for was 20%. Even with the extra 20% off, it was still to expensive. Even though my version is from 2006, I didn’t care. A ghd is a ghd.

My Thoughts:


  • Doesn’t just straighten hair. You can create curls and waves. How you ask? The hot plates move back and forth and up and down. Also the edges are rounded, not straight. This allows for smooth hair with no creases.
  • Heat resistant. No worries about burning your hand, scalp, forehead, etc. While it is on, you can touch the outside and not worry about getting burned!
  • Internally set temperature. It is automatically set at 374°F so you don’t  have to think about adjusting the temperature. It’s all set for you!
  • Ready to use in less than 1 minute. The flat iron heats up really quickly. No standing around for 5 minutes wondering and waiting for it to heat up.
  • Go over hair once. You only need to go over your hair once, rarely twice, to achieve the style you want. This will save you lots of time and saves your hair from damage.
  • No frizz or pouf. You will get sleek, silky, shiny, smooth hair.
  • Long power cord. The cord is 9ft long and swivels.
  • No snagging. When you run the straightner through your hair, it is a smooth pull with no tugging and snagging.
  • Sleep mode. It will turn off automatically if you don’t use it for 30 minutes. A wonderful safety feature.


  • The cost!
  • The cost!
  • The cost!

To make sure you are buying a real ghd and not a fake, I would check out ghd’s UK site or ghd’s USA site. They have a list of legit sellers. If you’re unsure of a seller, give them a call and ask.
