    :D My Mom has got curly hair,and has recently had it cut in a short bob,which can be worn curly or straight.She prefers it straight,so we got a cheap set of ceramic straightners for her to use,but they don't seem much cop.

    Can anyone recommend a good,reasonably priced set so as I can get them for her Christamas box?? :D

    I've got some babyliss cordless ones, they were about £30 from boots and I love them :) They have a bit like a cordless kettle you stand them up in to make them hot.

    i love GHD's too - but they were WAAAAYYY too expensive for me.

    i bought some babyliss ones last christmas (can't remember the model though) and they are every bit as good - and only about £30! i've got hair that is both v curly and v frizzy and these straighteners iron it flat instantly and keep it that way. they're fab.

    as long as the ones you get have solid ceramic plates (and are not just ceramic coated) and heat to 220 degrees c, then they ought to be decent straighteners.

    Not if I get there first, ghd's are the love of my life. They are a straight oasis in a land of frizzy locks.

    I got some GHDs for xmas about 3years ago, and when they started to act up all i did was send them back and they send ya back a brand new pair, no questions asked.

    You can't beat paying £140 for a lifes supply of GHD's.

    The GHD one's are the ones I wanted. My haristylist uses them on my hair and I love the finished look. But tbh I hardly ever go anywhere to warrant spending 30 minutes styling my hair like that :lol: so didn't bother in the end.

    :D Thanks for all the replies - -the GHD ones sound great but they are pricey - will take a look at the babyliss and Morphy richards ones first,then if she is really into wearing it straight will ask my dear Sis if she wants to go halves for her Birthday pressie in January :D :D
