To feel safe when purchasing GHD products......
1>The simple answer is to ask seller for their postcode.
2>Then go to the official ghd website,which can be found easily through search engine.(would help if ebay let us add this at this point!)
3>Bottom of their home page....centre right.You will see GHD product Locator.Click on that.
4>Salon Finder page will open.Simply add the sellers postcode where applicable.You will now see if the seller is an official stockist and see their business details.
I hope this is of some use as I am asked to verify my items most days.This way does give buyers peace of mind.
Of course some sellers will be unable to do this.The only way is to then check the authenticity once the box is open by checking serial numbers on the styler and the powercable.Most sellers would not wish to do this as the item is ment to be sealed when sent out.
IF IN DOUBT DO NOT BUY.
