Cloud Nine Original Iron Hair Straightener Review

  • Cloud Nine Wide Iron Review

Cloud Nine are a name I’ve seen appear frequently in the world of hair straighteners. I’d heard all about the sheer amount of awards that they’d won, but had never had the chance to try any of their products – until recently, that is.

You can see my review of the Cloud Nine Original Iron over here, if you so wish!

The Wide Iron pretty much does what it says on the tin – it’s a hair straightener with wider plates.

The Wide Iron comes equipped with:

  • Cloud Nine’s Innovative temperature control– choose from a range of temperatures between 100⁰c and 200⁰c – it’s honestly down to your preference and hair type.
  • Ultra Smooth Plate Technology – achieves perfect styling results at lower temperatures – and without any snagging!
  • Curved body – allows you to create perfect curls and waves.

The Wide Iron is available here on Amazon, where the reasonable price will get you:

  • The straightener itself
  • A protective heat guard – place this over the plate end of the straightener to store them safely – even while they’re still cooling down.
  • A carry pouch – a luxurious way to safely store and transport your straightener.
  • Free delivery

So, would these straighteners leave me on cloud nine or totally down in the dumps?

For anyone with thick or curly hair, the Cloud Nine Wide Iron is an absolute dream. Even if you just have long hair, the Wide Iron could save you a bit of time in the morning.

My hair only has a bit of a wave to it – nothing that your average pair of hair straighteners couldn’t fix! I let my rather curly-haired friend give the straighteners a whirl, and we were both massively impressed. It only took her several minutes to gain perfectly straight hair, and she found that the results lasted all day.

I also tested out The Wide Iron’s curling and waving capabilities on my own hair. It performed well, but it’s quite a bit more difficult to manoeuvre than a regular-sized or mini straightener – this was to be expected though.

The loose waves and curls I did manage to produce lasted just as long as my friend’s straightened hair did.

Overall, The Wide Iron was an absolute pleasure to use. I would happily compare it to the wide variation of the GHD styler – it just offers those of you with dry, damaged, or fine hair a lower styling temperature.

This isn’t a disadvantage as such, but much like any wider variation of a hair straightener, creating curls and waves is a little bit more difficult. The wider plates make manoeuvring the straightener trickier, but it is possible – it just requires a bit more practice and concentration. If it’s tight, more ringlet-y curls you’re after, opt for a normal-sized or mini straightener.


The Cloud Nine Wide Iron compared to the GHD IV Styler

As aforementioned, I would happily compare The Wide Iron to the wide GHD straighteners. They both give an extremely efficient performance that gives you long-lasting results, The Wide Iron just happens to do so at a lower running temperature.

The Wide Iron also offers the option for you to change the temperature if you so wish, which is a major advantage over the GHDs.

Styler Temperature (⁰C) Temperature Control Plate Width Curved Body
Cloud Nine Wide Iron 160°C -200°C Yes 4cm Yes
GHD IV Styler 175ºc – 185ºc Yes 2.54cm Yes

The Cloud Nine Wide Iron is a great alternative to the wide GHD IV styler – it performs almost as well, but allows you to style at a lower temperature to reduce damage, and allows you to tackle wider sections of hair- what’s not to like?

9 Total Score
A delightful purchase

I highly recommend the Cloud Nine Wide Iron to anybody looking for a pair of straighteners, especially those with particularly thick or curly hair because they would really get the full benefits from it. With very little to complain about, there's no reason why this shouldn't be your straightener of choice when purchasing one.
