About FHI Straighteners
FHI Heat is a company who produce and sell styling tools. Although based in California, America, they sell their products all over the world. They may not be as well-known as companies like GHD or Cloud 9 but people who own their straighteners are raving about them. They have a lot of celebrity endorsements on their site. There are pictures of Paris Hilton and a load of American stars I don’t recognise. However, they do have pictures of the entire cast of How I met your mother and the Big Bang theory so kudos for getting the coolest shows in the world to promote you. You can see all the pictures here.
They do offer a wide variety of straighteners in the US but sadly only a few have made it to the United Kingdom. The most popular straightener they sell here is the fhi heat 26mm [1″] Platform straightener. You can also buy the 18mm and larger 45mm straighteners in the UK as well.
Fhi Straightener Review
This is a quick review for the 26mm platform iron but most of the comments are relevant to the other size irons in the platform range as well. The colour design is a cool looking red and black combination. The red plates against the black base looks especially effective. Not only do the plates look great but they are really effective on hair as well. They really add shine to hair and makes it feel smooth and soft. Compared to GHD straighteners the cord is a lot longer as well.
Similar to original Cloud 9 irons, these FHI straighteners also come with a dial to change the temperature of the plates. The range is 60 to 230 degrees. Once set, the irons stay at correct temperature. They heat up quickly and cool down faster than other models.
In terms of negative comments the main complaint is that the platform model does not close automatically close down when you have finished using them. There have also been a couple of complaints on selling platforms like ebay and amazon that unofficial versions have been sold online so make sure you double check before hitting the buy button.
Overall, these are a good set of straighteners and a good £20 cheaper than rival models like the GHD IV. However, if you have extra money then take a look at this innovative new straightener first.
I really like the FHI iron. My hair is currently damaged and I really need a hair cut. However, I still need to straighten it, so I adjust the temperature to roughly 100 degrees and am able to fix my hair out without burning it! Ellie from Ellie’s Ramblings

A good hair straightener that manages to compete with the high end irons whilst managing to be cheaper.
