OG and still the best
If you can even remember before you got your first hair straightener (it’s like there was never such a time) you might remember the hours spent trying to blow dry your hair straight, the sweat running down your neck, your hair frizzing, and no amount of product could keep that mane sleek for more than a few hours.
Seeing the gap in the market – 3 entrepreneurs from Leeds in the UK; Martin Penny, Gary Douglas and Robert Powls decided to acquire production and distribution rights for a high end, high quality flat iron. Robert Powls had previously worked as a hair stylist, salon manager and owned 3 hair salons and knew they could be on to a winner.
ghd was born.
