Great Hair Dryer!

Love this hair dryer. It's so strong that you can style your hair very quickly. I like that the motor doesn't get hot. My previous hair dryer would switch off when it's hot. This GHD Air doesn't do that. I bought the Gold Saharan to match my GHD Gold Straightener. Worth the investment. I highly recommend this hair dryer.

great quality

I've owned mine for 5 years now and its still working strong!. Ghd brand itself would have to be the best out there for there. Great design and even better they bring out different styles.

A surprisingly good hair dryer

I received this hair dryer together with the famed GHD straighterner. I didn’t expect much as I have been using Parlux for years. The GHD hair dryer is powerful and keeps my hair soft and supple, and I am now using it everyday over my other Parlux hair dryer!

Excellent hair dryer

This hair dryer does a great job of drying my hair quickly, and also makes it a lot smoother. Not as smooth as when the hairdresser does it but I guess she is an expert! It's quite heavy but my hair is fine and doesn't take long to dry. I've had my straightener for years so I'm hoping this lasts a long time too.

Hairdressers review

I’ve been a hairdresser for 32yrs and have gone through a few hairdryers in my time.
The power and heat settings make for quick styling ( If your hair is fine and brittle this power may not be necessary.) The wide nozzle sends heat to a wider area of hair, also speeding up the process.
I’m onto my 3rd GHD and my only gripe is that if something goes wrong with it after the warranty has run out you can’t send it away to be fixed....it just goes in the bin. What a waste.
New motors are usually around $45 and brackets that hold your dryer motor in place or cord may be the only repairs needed. These things cost less to repair so it’s a pity and massive waste to have to bin it.

GHD make the best quality hair care products ever, I mean I have tried so many different brands over the years but nothing beats GHD, they are so effective yet don't damage your hair.


After decades of having superfluous hair but never enough money to buy these I was kinda giddy to walk out of Shavershop last night! At $190 it was the lowest price point (equates to 8.03 x hours of hard f*#ckn toil on my part) which I know puts me in the bottom target demograph for GHD. Anyway here's the bite they shut unevenly causing my hair to pass through a large gap. Even my trusty $40 Kmart job does it better. I'm wasting my Friday night taking this reject product back for a full refund because GHD Quality Control is a hairy fail!

Love it

This hairdryer is amazing..I have very fine long hair , which takes approximately 5 minutes to dry ...So easy and effortless...It's not to noisy and comfortable to hold...Highly recommend this dryer...

Love it

As a hairdresser I have tried many brands but couldn’t live without my air ghd. Light and the chord is very long which is different to most brands . Drys hair quick

pretty good

yeah pretty good hair dryer, nothing special really. have no notice it stand out when compared to other hair dryers for any reason. Good size for travel purposes, reliable, and nice looking design. definitely good for use when getting ready for a big occasion as it blows hair out nicely.

Hot blower, as you'd expect

The ghd Air 1.0 is the perfect hair dryer for long hair.
It packs a punch with heat and blow abilities. Dries my thick long tresses in a jiffy.
You really can't go wrong with this one.
Two heat options
Two blow options
3 metre long cable!
Easy clean filter.
It is a tad on the heavy side, so I pack a handy hair dryer for travel.
Highly recommend.

Was fine until the heating element failed

Bought this at the end of Dec 2016. Not a cheap hairdryer but it had great reviews. Hairdryer itself was fine, nothing amazing but dried my hair quickly. Today the heating element has failed and it will only blow cold air....expected a lot more for my money, oh and of course it’s outside warranty. Off to good guys to buy one for a quarter of the price which will probably last four times longer.

Love it. Can’t live without it

This is a tool I cannot do without. It is a major part of my everyday Haircare routine. This product is powerful yet quiet compared to any other dryers I’ve used. It blow dries my super stubborn curly hair straight in a matter of minutes with minimum damage and frizz. If you are looking for a hair dryer that I will be with you long term and style it while protecting it at the same time, invest in this one. You won’t regret it.

Very blowy, a little heavy

I have always found ghd products top quality so was looking forward to my hairdryer try out. I think I had high expectations and maybe expected too much to be honest. The dryer is super heavy and a little weary on the wrist, but you do soon get used to it. The air pressure is very strong which I d feel makes my hair go a little fuzzy. Sometimes when I use someone else's hairdryer I feel I get a smoother finish. Would I buy it again? Maybe... but not definitely...

Great product!

Very happy with the results, it dries my hair so quickly. This hairdryer seals the ends and leaves my hair beautiful just like a professional has styled my hair worth every cent. It is a little bit heavy though.

Hi Gabby, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear of your positive feedback on the ghd air hairdryer. Wishing you a good hair day, everyday. Regards, ghd


I purchased Ghd Air Hair Dryer Professional Kit as it was actually cheaper than purchasing just the hair dryer. Kit came with diffuser, brush,clips. Easy to use, find hairdryer a little bit heavy. Dries hair very quickly. Great for styling/straightening hair.

Failed after less than a month

A very disappointing experience. On their recommendation I bought this hair dryer from Price Attack in Warwick WA on 16 Feb 2018.
It stopped working completely after less than a month.
Equally disappointing is a note within the box stating in large bold block letters "PLEASE DO NOT RETURN TO PLACE OF PURCHASE".
This note goes on to give a USA contact number and what appears to be a USA email support address.
I'm not sure what to do next. Do I need to just put it down to being a bad expereince?

Hi Rick, Thank you for your review. We would like to apologise for your recent experience with your product.

We did contact the local supplier and they offered a replacement of another brand, This was appreciated. Regards Rick

Excellent product

I purchased these along with the GHD Platinum straighteners for my wifes birthday in July 2017.
I use these to dry my daughters and sons hair after they shower and it dries hair so much faster than the previous model we have used from other brands.

The only issue with these ones versus some of the others that we have had is the lack of speeds and heat. There is only I and II for both, whereas some of the other dryers we have had include 3 speeds and a COLD option. I know these arent designed for kids in general, but a lower option is always good because they sometimes find it a lot hotter than we do.

Other than that, they look great and work well.

Very satisfied with the performance of this product.

Today I trialed the Ghd Air Nocturne Hairdryer for the first time. I will admit that I am always skeptical when trying something new, and there certainly are a lot of eligible hairdryers on the market.
I have been tempted by the Ghd Air Nocturne Hairdryer for many months, but had never completely pursued it to the point of purchase. Certainly I had toyed with the idea, heard some reviews from others, and even handled it a bit before. Finally, today temptation got the best of me, and I went 'Full Monty' with this glorious machine.

Before commenting on the performance, I will first address it's veneer. The Ghd Air Nocturne Hairdryer is definitely impressive to look at in it's full glory. The outer cover is adorned with a variety of aesthetically pleasing prints. The whole design is both stylish and sleek, and I thoroughly enjoy running my hands over it's smooth body. Certainly, it is it one of the most visually pleasing hairdryers on the market.

In terms of the performance, the Ghd Air Nocturne Hairdryer does not disappoint. It's stamina (in short bursts) is impressive. My only niggle was that it did get incredibly hot at times, and I had to stop and cool it down.
In particular, I enjoyed the variable heat and power controls, which I was able to adapt to suit my needs. The precision nozzle allowed for incredible results in from a multitude of different angles. Ghd claims that the Air Nocturne dries hair up to 2x faster than conventional dryers, but that remains to be seen. However, I believe that when it comes to a good blow out, speed isn't everything.

Overall, the Nocturne will give you a fantastic blow out. It is efficient, sleek, high performing, and the results will leave you shivering with joy. It serviced me twice today, and I am pleased with my overall experience with this powerful styling partner.

Good quality dryer

Like all ghds the quality is excellent.

Dries my hair very nicely, but because I've got thick long hair it takes forever sometimes so a much lighter hair drier would be nice!

However I definitely would still recommend to others. It's not cheap feeling and you can for sure know that it'll last a long time and not light on fire after a few uses.
