ghd’s styling technology has been changing the game in hair for 21 years, and its latest launch may be the most significant breakthrough yet. ghd’s first-ever two in one air styler, titled duet style, has launched to achieve what was once thought impossible, utilising the company’s significant experience to combine the science of convection and conduction into bold AIRFUSION™ technology, the science that anchors the all-new tool.
The savvy tool transforms hair from wet to style with no damage, as AIRFUSION™ technology brings together the power of air flow and the performance of actively heated styling plates to create sleek, smooth, glossy, instantly frizz-free style, with two times the shine and 48 hours of hair softness as a major result. The unique ghd styling chamber merges internal airflow aerodynamics with four smart low-temperature plates, to dry and style hair simultaneously, improving both styling time and hair results.
“We are dedicated to developing pioneering technologies and creating the best- in-class products that tackle consumer and professional stylist needs,” said Jeroen Temmerman, ghd CEO. “The new ghd duet style is a revolution in tech beauty, there is no other product globally that dries and styles at the same time, combining hot air and styling plates. The ghd R&D team have achieved the impossible. With ghd duet style we are transforming the way women style their hair and delivering even more good hair days around the world.”
Stylists and consumers can use the tool on freshly cleansed wet hair and simply glide the tool down from the root to ends to dry and style. The Shine Shot mode transforms the tool in the touch of a button into a ghd styler with no airflow, working at the brand’s usual optimal temperature of 185°C to style hair that is, at that point, already dry.
The hero AIRFUSION™ technology is comprised of five elements. The original air filter design allows for maximum airflow to be drawn into the styler, ensuring the capacity to powerfully dry and style simultaneously. The airflow is then propelled by an ultra-compact brushless digital motor delivering a precise air speed that passes through a heater to reach the optimal styling temperature without damaging the hair.
The drying and styling chamber is an air grille that works in synergy with the plates to dry the hair, while the four smart styling plates utilise infinity sensors to predict the hair’s needs and the optimal low styling temperature required, to retain moisture in the hair. Finally, expertly angled root drying vents concentrate the airflow inside the chamber to direct outwards at an even lower temperature that ideally styles and dries the roots.
“Following years of research at the dedicated ghd R&D labs in Cambridge, we have utilised our deep knowledge of hair science to understand the complex interaction that hair has with water, heat, air and styler grip,” explained Dr Rob Milner, ghd CTO. “This research has been integral for the creation of AIR-FUSION™ technology, the breakthrough technology in duet style. Many styling routines over-dry or over-heat hair, but AIR-FUSION™ technology in duet style retains the natural moisture level of hair, providing a long-lasting style without causing damage.”
This scientific breakthrough also boasts an eco-friendly design, while still always prioritising power, efficiency and aesthetics. The tool utilises eco-friendly aerodynamics to minimise energy waste for up to 45 per cent less energy consumption. It also has a lower sound with a bespoke acoustic system that manages volumes and refines the styling experience for a quieter salon.
“ghd and innovation goes hand in hand. It’s been so long since I’ve seen hair tech innovation like the new ghd duet style, it is going to truly change the way we style hair,” shared ghd Global Brand Ambassador, Adam Reed.
The tool has been launched alongside the new ghd sleek talker styling oil, which was developed in conjunction with duet style to become the ultimate power couple. The wet to sleek styling oil encompasses heat protection that aids in smoothing, softening and replenishing hair, while also maximising heat styling performance for long-lasting professional results. The product is made with the advanced formula ghd heat protection system for a sleek finish that offers 25 per cent longer-lasting frizz control elevated from the when duet style is used alone, with four times more hair alignment against naturally dried hair.
The ghd duet style is available in black and white colour options to enhance your kit, retail shelf, bathroom cabinet and salon aesthetic in both its technological offerings and look. The instant cult purchase will be a retail favourite in its incomparable capabilities, while saving immense, money-making time in salon, and garnering next-level styling results.
Not quite a magic wand but close to it, discover ghd duet style for a futuristic take on style, care and technology, built through over two decades of ghd’s legacy in scientific advancement. Happy styling.
