Good product, while it lasts. Terrible customer service

My straightener lasted under 2 years before it began to beep uncontrollably and cool down. The day it broke it also began to spark under the plate. When I reached out to customer service they provided confusing and conflicting information over a series of emails. They were also super passive aggressive in tone.
It’s a shame the products life span is so short because it’s a really good straightener while it works. Show details

Best straightener ever!

This review is so overdue. I have had my GlamPalm straightener for over 10 years now and it has never let me down. Prior to discovering this amazing product I was using the GHD straighteners all of which were a disappointment and needed replacing every few years. I can honestly say that purchasing this straightener was the best decision. It heats up quickly, has adjustable heat settings and feels like quality. Show details

Love it!

I had an old ghd that had been going strong for 10+ years but really wanted something new. Was so hard to choose between this, cloud nine and ghd but so glad I chose this. My hairdresser also uses this and explained how the vibration setting is actually much better for your hair.
I have very coarse, frizzy hair and lots of it. My first use got it smooth and sleek. Definitely not cheap but worth every penny! Show details

Finally found my BFF! I'm over the moon!

Several years ago I had cloud 9 and loved it but when it died after 4 months I decided to get one of the new Dyson Corrale which I kept for a year even though I hated it. I decided on trying the glam palm 501.
I have long, thick, curly and frizzy hair and was hoping that the glam palm 501 would tame my hair. It is honestly amazing and produces such a sleek finish which I could never achieve with the other brands i previously owned. Normally my hair goes back to a frizzy wave after a few hours, but with the 501 it keeps the frizz and curl away. So happy with my purchase and would recommend this. Show details

Glides so well

I normally don't tend to leave reviews but I had to as this brand I recently discovered through my hairdresser is fantastic. multiple temperatures to choose from and a long cord! how good! Also my daughter left it on the other day and we came back from Coles and the iron was in a kind of off mode to protect my stuff. i looked it up and it is the hibernation mode. very handy! thank you Lisa and Cohen or Colin?! Show details

Very easy styling

I like that the plates are wider than my ghd. First impression is really good and comes with lots of goodies. The plates are smooth and the hair doesn't snag or pull.
I called up to enquire which iron would be the best for my hair and they guy on the phone was very friendly, I think he said his name was Colin. I have tried Cloud 9 in the past but they kept on breaking down so i went back to ghd but something changed so hopefully I'm on a winner here! Show details

THIS IS THE BEST IRON I HAVE EVER USED!!

OMG! So i always had a ghd and then i tried a Cloud9 but they always broke and their customer service is so bad. my friend who is a hairdresser recommended me the glampalm and WOW! it has changed my life! super quick styling, it has a vibration mode on all settings and it even has a clinic mode for treatments apparently but i still have to try that one.
PLEASE PLEASE do yourself a favor and give this band a go and you will fall in love like I am!! Show details

Doesn't Last Long

I would not recommend this straightener, it broke after 2 years whilst my old GHD lasted for 10. I sent it back to GlamPalm to be repaired & a few months later it broke again, right after the warranty ended. Very unhappy. Show details

BETTER THAN CLOUD 9!

Wow this striaghtener is just wow. the plates vibrate 800 times per minute and my hair feels so smooth and healthy. it never felt like this before! thank you glampalm! i did some investigation and these irons are the original ghd but also the original cloud 9 and by the looks of it cloud 9 is now copying glampalm at a more expensive price. the glampalm has 11 temperatures and can vibrate at all temperatures where apparently the cloud 9 only can vibrate on 150 degrees. also the glampalm has a clinic function to repair hair where the cloud 9 has not.
i bought the white glampalm and am in love <3 <3 <3 up to buying a glampalm blowdryer yay! Show details

poor quality

Initially I loved the iron but after owning the iron for less than 6 months one of the plates chipped through normal use, the iron has never been dropped or misused but apparently its not covered by warranty. Complete waste of money I've never had this issue with my previous GHD that I've owned for 10 years would not recommend this product to anyone considering the price. Show details

My Glampalm is making a ringing sound what seems to be the problem?

Hayley

Hi Jennifa,
When you have the Clinic Series a ringing sound in totally normal as it is the muffled motor that drives the vibration and starts when you plug in the device. Hope that helps!
Have a lovely evening :)
