Toni & Guy Precision Hair Straighteners

It's been a while since I've reviewed a product but when TONI & GUY contacted me and asked me to take part in their 'hair personality test', I was interested and yes please! As part of the Hair Meets Wardrobe collection, there were four different categories I could have been - Casual, Classic, Glamour or Creative. After a fun little test, I was Classic!

"Kate Middleton eat your heart out, you are the queen of chic. Use the Precision Straighteners to straighten hair from root to tip, before applying TONI & GUY Shine Serums for a super cool Chelsea 'It' girl style."


As I'm sure you can imagine, I was really excited to try these but was immediately disappointed I didn't receive any information about the product, the collection or even the price/where to buy! I've done a bit of research myself and turns out they RRP £30.00 but are cheaper on Amazon at the moment.

My first impressions of disappointment continued when I saw the packaging. I'm not sure if the image below does justice but they arrived in a thin, cardboard box with a horrible plastic lid. I was almost expecting a little bit more from such a great brand.


There's little information inside about the straighteners but this is what it claims and my personal opinion - 
  • 20 mm titanium plates - These are so small! I couldn't work with large parts of my hair and therefore it took ages to straighten. I only did 1 section this morning because I was in a rush and it was just taking me far too long.
  • Easy-to-style from root to tip - I personally found it difficult and time-consuming due to the size of the plates and length of the straighteners. 
  • 210°C max temperature - Despite this claim of heating to over 200 degrees C, I had to straighten sections 2/3 times before it was even slightly straight.
  • Fast heat-up - I couldn't tell when they were fully heated up because they don't flash or beep to let you know they're ready. Although it has an LED light indicator, it only 'indicates' whether they are on/off. 
  • Easy to hold - I agree, they are easy to hold and I really liked the swivel cord. It also has 3m in length which is plenty and doesn't restrict you when using the product.


As you can see, these really are quite small in comparison to my GHD's. Unfortunately, although they are a good price, I just don't think they're worth it. Straighteners are really important to me as I have naturally curly hair therefore, the product just isn't good enough for me. However, it may be more suitable for a younger audience or someone who just wants to quickly do a section of their hair. I tried the serum but as you can see from the images of my hair, I think it made it a little greasy and unfortunately, I don't like serums very much. 


What do you think? Have you tried TONI & GUY products before?

  1. How disappointing! Although I guess not much can be expected from a £30 pair of hair straighteners. Like you I also have very thick, curly hair, so quality in straighteners is a must!

  4. Great review, I'm a big believer in GHD's being the one and only too, I'll forever have and replace mine with another pair of the same. Don't fix it if it ain't broken

  6. GHDs are the best in my eyes too. I actually really like the packaging of the Toni & Guy hair tools, but I agree it's a little flimsy! x
