LAST WEEK I PURCHASED A PAIR OF GHD RARE STRAIGHTNERS FROM EBAY, UNFORTUNATELY THEY TURNED OUT TO BE COUNTERFEIT. THE GHD RARE ONLY CAME OUT IN MAY AND THERE ARE ALREADY FAKES CIRCULATING ONLINE SO EVERYONE BEWARE !!!!!!! 

MUCH AS I HATE TO ADMIT IT, THE STYLER I PURCHASED IS AN INCREDIBLY GOOD COPY AND HAD I NOT CALLED GHD TO REGISTER MY STYLER I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN AT ALL !!!

ON CLOSER INSPECTION THERE WERE A FEW VERY MINOR INDICATIONS THAT THIS STYLER WAS A FAKE. THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS;

1) THE SWIVEL CORD WAS COMPLETELY SOLID AND DID NOT HAVE 1 HOLE IN IT LIKE THE REAL GHD'S

2) THE LEOPARD PRINT CARRY CASE HAD A LABEL ATTACHED INSIDE SAYING "MADE IN CHINA" AND THE GENUINE GHD'S ARE MANUFACTURED IN KOREA

3) WHEN YOU TURN A GENUINE GHD FROM SIDE TO SIDE YOU CAN SEE THE HOLOGRAM OF A STRAIGHTNER APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR, WHEREAS THE HOLOGRAM ON THE PAIR I RECEIVED HAD THE IMAGE OF A STRAIGHTNER ON TOP OF THE HOLOGRAM RATHER THAN ACTUALLY BEING PART OF THE HOLLOGRAM ITSELF.

I HAVE STUDIED THIS STYLER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND THESE ARE THE ONLY POINTS I COULD FIND TO SUGGEST IT WAS FAKE, WHICH IS PRETTY SCARY BECAUSE IT JUST PROVES HOW ADVANCED THE COUNTERFEITS ARE BECOMING.

I HOPE THIS GUIDE CAN HELP ANYONE FROM ENDING UP PURCHASING A PAIR OF FAKES AS I DID. ALSO, WHEN PURCHASING A PAIR OF GHD'S FROM EBAY ALWAYS ASK THE SELLER TO PROVIDE THE SERIAL NUMBER ON THE STYLER, THIS WAY YOU CAN CHECK IT ON THE GHD WEBSITE AND HAVE NO CHANCE OF PURCHASING A FAKE. THE WAY I SEE IT, IF THE PRODUCT IS GENUINE AND THE SELLER HAS NOTHING TO HIDE THEY SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM PROVIDING YOU WITH THE SERIAL NUMBER. ALWAYS BEWARE OF SELLERS WHO DONT RESPOND OR WHO COME UP WITH SOME FEEBLE EXCUSE SUCH AS "THE STYLERS ARE PRE-PACKED READY FOR POSTING" OR "THE TAG HAS BEEN REMOVED."

 

VOTE FOR THIS GUIDE TO KEEP IT GOING IF IT HELPED YOU AND TO HELP STOP PEOPLE ENDING UP DISAPPOINTED WITH FAKE GHD'S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
