​Variable temperature, heats up quickly, slim, long cable, stylish, easy to use - this very briefly sums up the advertised features, and all quite true. Having tried (well, my wife and daughters having tried) a number of different straighteners, from cheap ones through to GHDs, these Nicky Clarke DesiRED straighteners are comparable to the best they have had. From the practicality point of view, ease of use is great which means more flexibility in usage and speeds things up. Also, they smooth through the hair well, although most straighteners do when new. Overall, 4 stars for style and ease of use.

The Nicky Clarke desired hair straightener retails at around £90 although many online retailers have offers on for nearly half price, which is great value for money when considering how much they have improved the new desired range.
