Designed for speed drying, this attachment helps to maintain precise styling control with an extended 88mm width ensuring concentrated airflow and enabling the styling of larger sections for shinier, smoother results.

The ghd helios® is the result of listening to what our professional stylists and consumers want and developing a technology which meets those desires and takes the styling experience to a whole new level,shares Ludovic Dellazzeri, Managing Director of ghd anz.

The ghd helios® not only delivers ultra-powerful speed drying and a lighter styling experience, it also leaves the hair smoother and shinier and eliminates frizz and fly-aways,he continues.

Now, our new range of nozzle attachments are a seamless extension to enable even more precise styling results for a variety of hair textures and styling needs. Whatever your need, whether its speed drying, a lighter blow-drying experience, or superior results and shinier, smoother hair, the ghd helios hairdryer and nozzle range delivers.

Culminating 120,000 hours of testing and development, the ghd helios® hosts a lightweight, long-life brushless motor thats been expert designed for increased speed creating a powerful, yet highly concentrated airflow that travels at an impressive 120kmh. The result? Fabulous hair and reduced styling time to boot. A win on all fronts.

The ghd helios® harnesses the unique power of Aeroprecis™ technology, allowing for intuitive styling with more precise temperature and airflow control – for smoother, salon-quality results with 30% more shine*. Thanks to advanced ionic technology, users can also experience reduced frizz and flyaways for an impeccable finish.**

The ghd helios® comes standard with a narrow nozzle which is created in one mould. Why is this important? When standard nozzles are manufactured they are made in 2 halves and then stuck together. This creates ridges inside, which can disturb the airflow. With ghd’s smooth, contoured nozzle the airflow is concentrated precisely allowing for better hair alignment and creating smooth, sleek and shiny results.

With its bespoke acoustic system technology, users can ditch that all too familiar deafening in favour of a more refined blow-dry experience, regardless of the setting. Available in four statement hues (blue, white, black and plum); each hair-dryer comes gilded with luxurious metallic accents ensuring your tool both looks and feels the (regal) part.
