Design of the Nicky Clarke DesiRED hair straightener

The brand new Nicky Clarke DesiRED hair straightener is styled in a luxurious red sparkle finish, ensuring your hair tool exudes quality, class and elegance with unrivalled high performance to match.

The state-of-the-art hair straightener is part of the new generation DesiRED range – the best-selling range from the brand - and has been updated with ceramic black pearl and Moroccan oil. Both of these together add an extra dose of shine and smoothness to your hair.

The new and improved range includes a Dryer, Straightener and the Wide Plate Straightener.

Nicky Clarke says is that the new tool is a must-have in his kit when it comes to photo shoots. The technology of the tool ensures you're left with hair that is smooth, sleek and glossy. The plates glide through the hair, and they're ideal for using to curl your hair, too.

Independent research shows that more women prefer Nicky Clarke DesiRED Straightener to GHD* (*vs GHD IV Styler, 54% of women agreed. Independent research conducted by Cambridge Market Research 2012).

Ceramic black pearl plates

The real black pearl infused into the ceramic plates allows the tool to glide through the hair with ease, ensuring there's no snagging and you're left with luscious locks.

It also features ceramic heating technology to help plates heat up super fast and give a long-lasting, perfectly smooth finish.

Moroccan oil

Moroccan oil is another new addition to the DesiRED straightener and adds an extra dose of shine to your hair. The fatty acids ensure that this is great at moisturising your hair, ensuring your hair doesn't look frazzled or dry after you've styled it with heat.


Tourmaline technology

Tourmaline technology locks in moisture, keeping hair smooth and healthy.


The digital variable temperature control reaches a top temperature of 230˚C, guaranteeing flawless styling for every hair type. With 11 different heat settings, you can tailor the tool for your specific hair type ensuring you get the style you desire.

Nano silver
