Really reliable product


I didn't intend on buying The Farrah by Halo when my old straightener broke. However I am so glad that I did. It was recommended to me by one of the staff at the store i bought it from. I was in a rush as it was the day before I was leaving to go overseas so I didn't even bother researching it. I am so happy with this product. It makes my hair so much softer than the previous straightener that i had does. I love the digital screen so you can see exactly what temperature you are using. I also love that it can be used around the world no matter the voltage in the power point. It's very streamline and sleek and I will never go back to another brand!

Love it!


Birthday present instead of a GHD for something different and I'm in love! I have heaps of hair and it has made life so much sweeter!
The packaging was really pretty too!
Just love :)

I thought I knew what having a hair straightener was like, but boy I was wrong. When the chick at the store recommended it, I was a little hesitant because of it being the very first one I found. But I'm glad that I went with it, because once I tried it, I could instantly feel the difference on my hair! It's much more lighter, and the feel is so smooth, it also takes about one or two strokes for a length of my hair to be completely straightened! If you're a frizzy/curly haired girl, in need for a good straightener, this is the one *\o/*



best hair straightener i've used by far, cant understand all the poor reviews! love this product, leaves my hair feeling amazing!

This is the 1st straightener that I have found that works on my type of hair. If you have frizzy curly & thick hair. ...this is the one for you. I tried Remington ceramic but was useless for my hair. Also has a 60mins automatic switch off which is great.

Bad and definitely over priced product


Thank you ladies for sharing your experiences. Alas I checked it after purchasing one and had a bad experience.
Today I bought one from, hairhouse warehouse at Westfield Bondi junction. The sales lady said she uses it for her hair so I bought it
It was terrible. You'd think it's a faulty item or something, and there is a big gap between blades although I followed the instructions and took two inches lock with quarter inch thick.
Luckily I went back same day and asked to return it and for refund. The staff were a bit rude and said it is actually better than GHD because it was made in Korea! While GHD is made in China where there is not quality meterelogy and standards. Duh!
I'd say: A babyliss straighters are way better than this thing.

halo straightener doesn't even heat


Was talked into buying a halo hair straightener from hairhouse warehouse. It is rubbish. The plates din't and have never heated properly. Compared to my using my friend's ghd, the halo takes double the amount of to e to get even remotely straight hair. So angry that I wasted my money!!! Looking for a better product now.

Poorly made, poor customer service to follow

Perfect for my hair


After reading the reviews on here I was nervous, even though the guy at hair house warehouse compared the GHD and the Farrah on my hair at the shop, After opening my Farrah I was pleasantly surprised it heats up super quickly I have thick coarse super long hair (past my butt) and the GHD just didn't hold the temp and I had to go over it 2-3 times. The Farrah was one stroke. It has different heat settings so you can put it on a lower setting if your hair is finer but I used it with a heat protectant spray on 230 degrees and it didn't burn, left it shiny and gorgeous. I love it and would recommend it to people with similar hair type as mine.



Do not purchase this product


Brought this on the trusting advice of Hair House Warehouse while on Holidays as Cloud Nine broke. Lasted 5 days and on returning to Geelong went to return and advise has burnt hair and advise would replace but not refund as franchise. They continued to recommend so believed just a faulty product. Hair continues to burn. Been back tw ce and told would not have sold for my hair but still wont replace just sell products. Given up and researching to purchase a new one. Waste of 200 dollars plus 80 of products that dont work and has damaged my hair. Do not trust Halo or Hair House Warehouse
Everything including service from sales people



Dont buy this product


I recently purchased the Farrah straightener after my GHD broke. Long story short I used it for only the second time and it burnt an entire section of my hair off and the plates melted. Obviously a faulty product. The company were less than helpful and will never buy anything from this range again.

Wish I'd bought something else


The plates on this straightener do not close properly - they do not meet. There is quite a large gap. I returned it only to be given another straightener with the same problem. I find that it is not straightening my hair properly because of this (I have thick, curly & frizzy hair). I had my last GHD for 6 years and for the price of it I was hoping for the same out of the Halo. Unfortunately I will be looking at buying a different brand (when I can afford it).
Digital temperature display
Expensive at $199.95. Plates do not close/touch. Does not straighten my hair very well.

Does the Halo the farrah come with a case or is it simply the straightener on its own?
I feel like i got ripped off because the packaging wasn't even taped closed.
