Want to know which Cloud Nine straighteners should I buy? Let us point you in the direction of the perfect pair. 

Having launched in 2009, it’s fair to say that Cloud Nine are a well-established brand, but they haven’t quite got the same level of household name status as hair giants like ghd or Dyson. For that reason, they’ve ended up being a bit of an industry insider secret – making what those in the know consider to be some of the best hair straighteners, best curling irons and best hairdryers available now. 

If you’re in the market for a new pair of straighteners, Cloud Nine definitely have you covered. But, with eight different options to choose from, it’s not immediately clear which will be best suited to your hair type and budget. They have standard-sized straighteners, wide-plate straighteners and even micro ones for shorter hair. Some can be set to lower temperatures, and some have built-in technology to reduce damage to the hair – both key selling points if you’re keen to avoid split ends.  Price-wise, Cloud Nine straighteners are expensive but not eye-wateringly so – especially compared to tools like the Dyson Corrale or ghd Duet Style which will set you back upwards of £350. Prices start at £189 for The Touch Iron and rise to £299 for The 2-in-1 Contouring Iron, the brand’s latest innovative launch for creating curls, waves and sleek looks with one tool.
