Hi All! Since reading all of you rave about your GHD experiences, I am going to get one. BUT--what is the difference between the two? I read the descriptions on sephora.com,and it appears that the iron for $195 does not have a fire retardant casing??? Am I missing something here??? Is the $195 one going to go up in flames??? I'm seriously confused and don't know which one to get. TIA!

i don't know about the casings, but the newer one is more cylindrical, meaning it's easier to curl your hair with it. it also has a 30-minute automatic shutoff, and i think that there are a few small differences in how it heats up. my hairstylist uses the $240 and that's the one i got, but i think the $195 one should give you good results as well.

The $240 is the one I have, too. I just thought to myself, "Hey Amanda, you are buying a $200 iron, if I'm making that commitment to an iron, let me get the newer, better one." And the $240 one is universal voltage which is a big plus.

Thanks guys. I'll probably get the $240 one since that is the one that everyone has been raving about.

I've got the newer one, MK4? Which I assume is the same as the one with the $240 price tag?

The universal voltage is a real bonus! Great for traveling.

well you know I figured hell if I'm gonna go into triple digits on a flatiron I might as well get the $240 one instead of the $195. I like the auto hibernate/shutoff in the newer version...

the ghd mk4 is the one for $240 and i like the dual voltage and rounded casing better than the $195 (mk3) version... it also comes in pink! they have the black one at sephora and the black one and the pink one at stylebell. stylebell has a free thermal protectant and free shipping, and sephora has free shipping - either way, i like ghd way better than chi. it's worth the money if it straightens your hair faster and safer, plus the thermal protectant will keep your hair protected. good luck!
