Developed by ghd’s leading UK Research and Development lab, the new ghd helios hairdryer is lighter and faster for ultra-powerful drying and ultimate styling control in less time.

The lightweight, longer-life brushless motor is designed for speed, creating a powerful yet highly concentrated airflow which travels at 120kmh to drastically speed up your styling routine in the morning. So does this mean we can snooze that big longer? We hope so.

The ghd Helios comes in four stunning colours; black, ink blue, plum and white, and is priced at £159.

It's available now in salons, retailers like John Lewis, House of Fraser and Feel Unique as well as online at ghdhair.com.

The aerodynamic design and bespoke contoured nozzle delivers a concentrated temperature and airflow distribution, giving you more precise control for incredible styling results. This can range from a quick rough dry to that Kate Middleton-esque blow dry we all know and love.

So whether you’re looking for quick, sleek and smooth results or shop-stopping volume, ghd's helios puts a salon-blowdry in the power of your hands and in the comfort of your own home.

Used by professionals across the globe, ghd helios is the go-to for professional styling – thanks to it being lighter, faster and smoother than the ghd professional hairdryer.

Zoe Irwin, ghd’s UK ambassador says "The ghd helios hairdryer gives you the perfect flow of air when drying to create a natural fullness, stunning shine and smoothness like no other."

"It’s my new kit bag essential as it’s so fast and really minimises drying time, therefore limiting damage to your hair. Remember to use the cold shot button when drying; this blast of cold air helps to lock your finished style in place."

Jerone Temmerman, ghd’s CEO says "At ghd we continuously listen to our professionals and consumers in order to take our technology to the next level. We understood there was a need for a hairdryer that was beautifully designed yet lighter and faster."

"A unique combination of powerful fast drying with styling control and enhanced shine to the hair."

So why the ghd Helios?
