GHD Cherry Blossom Hair Straighteners Review

Pink Cherry Blossom Hair Straighteners* £129 with £10 going to Breakthrough Breast Cancer

My hair is naturally poker straight so I am lucky that I don't have to spend hours battling with straighteners to end up with the sleek bob look I usually aim for.  This doesn't mean that I don't need to use straighteners to help me get this look and I want to use a great quality pair to minimise the potential heat damage to those delicate ends.

My old straighteners are Mark 3 GHD's and about 7 years old.  They still work despite me having left them on all day several times (don't tell my husband!) but after trying out these beauties I can confirm that they have definitely seen better days... I have used them daily over the last 7 years which made them well worth the investment, works out to under 5p a day! Fantastic value.  They really are the best hair straighteners.

The styling of these limited edition straighteners is just perfect.  I love the girlie pink plates and the subtle glossy polka dots.  I absolutely adore the heat resistant storage bag that they come in, I love the cherry blossom embroidery - it's so pretty!  My favourite thing about these straighteners is they turn themselves off after 30 minutes, no more worrying that I have left them on and no more discoloured paint work when I find out I have... ha!  They beep to let you know when they are ready for use and the power indicator has even been given a pink make over with a light up GHD logo.

Of course though the best thing about these straighteners is for every pair purchased £10 goes to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.  GHD have raised almost £6 million for Breakthrough Breast Cancer over the last 9 years, that's something to be very proud of!

This is how my hair looks each morning after I have washed and dried it.  As you can see it is mostly totally straight with a few sticky out bits that need tackling.  I use my GHD's to turn the ends under and generally smooth my hair down so it doesn't sit quite so straight.  Once finished I add a touch of serum to the ends and a bit of hairspray and voila!

The straighteners heat up so quickly, quicker than my morning brain can function! They glide through my hair and within a minute or so the ends are all turned under and I am finished.  GHD are known for making the best hair straighteners and I am not going to be arguing with that - I can't fault them!

*The GHD's have been gifted to me for review.  I added the £10 that would have gone to charity if they had of been purchased to my #TBBCAR donation, no one wants a charity to lose out now do they?!


  1. Your hair looks super glossy here, definitely the best straighteners to use if you want smooth locks!
