Electrical fault after 16 months of use :(
My first cloud nine wide iron was my ride and die! It lasted me a good 3 years before the plates stopped heating. I also had really long and thick hair back then and used it daily! Purchased my second pair in Dec 2016 and the plates no longer heat up. There are bright sparks happening behind one of the plates every time I turn it on and the safety beep starts to indicate a fault. Very disappointed! thought I would get at least 2 years from this pair. I did notice with this pair that the quality wasn't as good as before, the cord was unravelling and exposing internal wires, even though I was careful not to wrap it around the iron. Some of the led lights stopped working, the plate covering the temperature gauge came off. Very poorly put together. Its outside of warranty, which is 12 months in Australia but 2 years in the U.K. Contacted Cloud Nine Australia to organise repairs, I sent in some photos and a video of what happens when I turn it on and they just told me to buy a new pair and not to bother sending in for repairs because the cost would not justify it. The customer service consultant told me with daily use that these irons are only expected to last 18-24 months tops and in my case less because she assumed I was too rough with my iron. I love how these irons straighten my hair but not sure if I should fork out that much money again for my third pair or look at something else.
great ironthis is so good, is lasting well and gives my hair a nice shine
GoodA good iron that has lasted me for years.
The bestverified purchaserThis is the best hair straightener I’ve ever used. It leaves the hair sooo silky smooth and saves you so much time. Highly recommend for anyone with thick or long hair.
Best Straightener In The WorldI have always been a huge fan of Cloud Nine hair straighteners but never tried the wide iron, omg it is hands down the best hair straightener I have ever owned. I have gone through so many in the past, as I have thick wavy unpredictable hair which takes hours to straighten but not with this, my hair is straight and shiny in two seconds. I can be super lazy when it comes to doing my hair so this ha...Read More
Better than ExpectedI had been a lifelong GHD user so bought this with a little bit of trepidation but was blown away! Great sleek design, temperature control. Let my fine frizzy hair ultra smooth. Great investment.
Great for all types of hair!I have perfectly straight hair but I love this product because it doesn't sizzle the end of my hair like other iron products. It is great for styling and the wide iron frame is so useful for straightening the thicker parts of my hair!
Every Girl's New Best FriendI have dead straight hair. Why use a straightening iron? My hair is so thick that it flicks out on the end of my short bob and I hate it. This thick iron is a dream for all of us girls and guys with thick hair. Don't let people fool you into thinking it's wide just for curly hair. It's a straight hair dream. I personally find the thicker the iron, the less time it takes to straighten and I am in l...Read More
Nice productI have very thick wavy hair that is extremely difficult to straighten so I loved the idea of a straightener with a wider iron. This makes it so much easier to straighten my hair and haven't had any problems so far.
Amazing for thick hairSo user-friendly and comfortable to use, especially when taking clients all day at the salon. Perfect for thicker hair types and curly hair, the adjustable heat setting and ceramic plates straighten the hair silky smooth.
Best on the marketI’ve had a few straighteners & this one is definitely the best I’ve ever used. Ergonomic, super quick to heat up & the wide tongs mean it takes a fraction of the time it would normally take to straighten my hair. Can’t live without it now!
Works great but is it damaging my hair?I got this recently. I used it once so far. I have very long, thick, coarse, curly hair and I actually did my entire head in about 35 minutes! unreal. . I did use a fairly high heat setting though. Only had to pass each section 2 times. Hair looked SO SILKY and gorgeous with a nice wave put in. However, after two days, my scalp start feel very dry and tight at the roots of my hair. this is how my ...Read More
Cloud wide iron reviewOmg!!! What an amazing buy!! I have been searching for a hair straightener and can I say this cloud nine definitely is worth the hype/ money, compared to cheaper brands this is a great style tool for curling straightening what ever look you are after, I love shopping on adore beauty as they are fast and efficient with delivery
Never going backI would never recommend another product. I have super curly hair that I wear straight every day (up or down) and I couldn’t live without this. I’ve had GHD, and the Cloud 9 normal sized plates but the wide iron is by far my favourite. It’s been close to 5 years and it’s still going strong with daily use.
Cloud 9 Wide IronQuick and fast delivery, So happy with my purchase. What use to take me nearly an hour to do my hair now takes me 30min or less.
Worth the investmentThis straightener comes with everything you need - bag, clip and the straightener itself. My favorite feature is the temperature control which not all straighteners have and it feels really nice to use.
Amazing quality and makes hair so silky!I used to own a GHD but heard such good things about Cloud Nine so finally made the switch! I love this wide iron so much, it is super easy to use and makes my hair so silky and smooth. The Wide plate also creates beautiful curls!
Best investment!This is such a nice, quality straightener. It is amazing for my thick, wavy hair. Straightening my hair is effortless!
Best investment!This is such a nice, quality straightener. It is amazing for my thick, wavy hair. Straightening my hair is effortless!
ImpressiveThis iron is nothing short of impressive. It leaves hair so soft and shiny and the multiple heat settings help a lot. It lasts years as well.
Just, WOW!Yes it is expensive, but it is a long term investment that your hair will love you for. The straightener has multiple heat settings depending on the thickness or texture of your hair. I have unruly, frizzy hair and this product is able to tame my locks. I am able to achieve amazingly straight hair with no painful tugging or pulling of the hair. Could not be happier!
AN ABSOLUTE DREAMThis is my absolute fave straightener I have had 3 ghds and since the first cloud 9 was bought out I have been it’s biggest fan
They glide through your hair heat up so very quickly and they straighten your hair beautifully
Could not recommend this straightener enough! Well worth the money
PerfectCan't complain! one of the best on the market.
love itlove this, i especially love that it has temperature control, it straightens my curly hair well
Really works!Great for thick hair. The wide iron helps straighten thick hair extra fast. Love it
BEST HAIR STRAIGHTENER EVER!!!!I have used many types of hair straightener on the market and this is by far THE BEST one!!! The wide plate REALLY save your time because it can hold more hair during the process. And I realised after using this, my hair doesn't feel dry at all like with any other hair straightener, instead they feel so smooth. And the machine heat up rather quickly so you don't need to wait long in order to use i...Read More
It's good but normal straighter would be betterThe wide iron is good but think I would have preferred the normal size one for my hair.
Better for straightening hairIf you have thick or long hair, use this straightener!! The wide iron makes hair straightening a lot quicker. Though always remember to use a heat protectant spray before straightening and to avoid any heat damage
Love it!I upgraded to this wide iron from my GHD. Love the wide iron. It creates lovely curls and I like that I can adjust the temperature. The heat resistant travel case is also super handy!!
The bestThe best straighter on the market by far. I have both thick and thin and the thick one is quicker to straighter longer and thicker hAir. The technology behind the design and the quality of the plates are by far a lot better then anything else out there.
LoveI received this as a gift and it is really good for my thick hair. I used to use GHD and still do time and again but this is equally good.
Best gift I have ever received!I was incredibly luck to get this wonderful and versatile straightener as a gift! It sure lives up to its reputation! Leaves my hair soooooooo silky straight and shiny!! Love Love LOVE!
FantasticI have had mine for a couple years and it is great! this size is great for creating waves also.
AmazingThis iron is just amazing. Give me a great look, without damaging my hair.
Amazing for thick hairI upgraded from the normal Cloud Nine iron after using it for years. This one takes half the time to straighten my hair because of the wide iron. My hair is smooth and shiny afterwards.
Not sure if it can tame my maneI have outrageously thick hair and don’t straighten often, because of the time it takes. After reading the rave reviews I bought this hoping it would be a game changer. It does the job, but not sure if it’s any better than my previous GHD. It also takes a bit of change in technique going from a standard iron size to a wide iron, so perhaps I’ll get better at it with time!
AmazingSo good for thick hair
The BestThe best one you'll buy. If you have tight curls though, go for the original iron not the wide.
Expensive, but worth it!I have long thick hair, and I purchased this to replace my very old GHD. I love that you can control the temperature, and it straightens my hair super quick. I haven't quite got the hang of curling with it yet, hopefully I'll nail it with a bit more practise!
for thick hairI find with this, I don't have to section my hair into tiny strands because it's wider, it holds more hair, so I have straightened hair within minutes! For reference, I've got thick, medium long hair
So good for thick and curly hair!After my Halo finally died I’ve decided to purchase the Cloud Nine. It does wonders for my hair, it straightens it so well. You are still able to curl with the wide plate, the curls just drop quicker in my experience and they turn into waves. The straighter is able to curl without your hair getting stuck, which is good to! Such a good investment.
Finally upgradedI had a GHD for about 10 years and it was still working fine, but just didn't slide through the hair super smoothly, which I feel like could potentially do more damage over time.
I went to the hairdresser recently, and she used this on my hair, and I bought one maybe a week later. Just glides through the hair. I think the wide blades makes it a little quicker. Though it can be a bit harder ...Read More
Amazing for curly frizzy hairGreat straightener for curly frizzy hair. Makes it super sleek and in a half time of a normal size. I’ve traded in the GHD for this and love it. Can still do great waves with it too.
Can't go past a cloud nine!My hair is pretty curly and the cloud nine is one of the best straighteners I have used keeping my hair straight all day long!
Thick hair, curly girl problems SOLVED!I have thicker than thick, curly hair so straightening my hair was a huge issue for me as it would take forever, hurt my back and not last very long with my GHD.
THIS STRAIGHTENER HAS FIXED ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS FOR ME!!!
I cannot stress enough how fantastic this straightener is. My Mum and my Brother both have thick hair like mine but theirs is much longer and they can STILL straight...Read More
Game changerMy silver GHD just wasn’t straightening my hair anymore and knowing my hairdresser uses cloud nine and all the feedback - I bit the bullet and got the wide iron as I have a lot of hair.
Quick to heat up and VERY smooth. Leaves hair silky and shiny. Worth every penny
Best straightener on the market!Finally decided to upgrade my straightener after having my previous one for 6 years and all I can say is WOW. I have naturally pretty straight hair but I love running the cloud 9 over my locks once I’ve blow dried them just to smooth it out a little and get rid of those annoying fly aways. The variable heat settings are great too as it gives you full control over what you’re doing. The wide iron i...Read More
GreatCloud Nine stylers are amazing. I have long hair and it only takes me about 10 minutes to straighten my whole head! Would highly recommend if you are on the market for a good straightener.
Amazing ProductThis has to be one of the best irons on the market. Easy and quick to use. Leaves hair silky and smooth.
LoveI am absolutely in love with this hair straightener, I had a GHD before and now upgraded. Heats quickly and straightens so well !! I love everything about this hair straightener would highly recommend
Wow!Such an amazing flat iron!! Way better than ghd. it truly makes my hair look and feel like silk. I don't know what it is but the plates make your hair very smooth and shiny and don't damage your strands too much. Hair also stays straighter for much longer. Love it!! Excellent investment for fab hair
SleeknessFinally found a straightener that makes my hair sleek and gives me hair that looks like I just walked straight out of a salon!
Cloud Nine C9 Wide IronSo pleased i finely purchased this product
Works like a dream even on my fine hair
Highly recommend it!!
On Cloud Nine Thanks to Cloud 9Finally found a straightening that makes my hair sleek. de-frizzed and a lasting straightened finish - absolutely love mine! Great for soft bouncy curls too
Simply the bestI bought this iron to replace my GHD since I wanted a wider iron. I have fine hair but have always found straightening a chore. This iron cuts down my straightening time in half! I use the second highest heat setting and have found that compared to my GHD, there is no "smoke" that comes off my hair upon contact, which makes me think that it could be less damaging. Also the ceramic plates are so sm...Read More
Best hair straightenerI have had my cloud nine wide straightening iron for over 2 years now and it is still like brand new. The heat settings are extremely helpful if you have damaged hair like mine. I mainly use my for creating soft waves and it is super easy and the waves hold really well. Overall a fantastic purchase that I cannot fault!
So GreatMy hairdresser uses this straightening iron and recommended me to get it as I was looking for one. Must I say, this does an amazing job and leaves flawless results, also love it for loose waves.
Amazing! Better than GHDYou really can't go past this straightener. It's simple to use and effortlessly straightens, curls, crimps, you name it. Heats quickly and glides through my hair.
Fantastic ProductI have used this straightener for a few years now and it’s great. Smooth and you can even use it to curl. It has great options for altering heat (5 levels) depending on your hair type and it turns itself off if you go out and accidentally leave it on. It also comes with a cover so that you can pack it in your luggage after use and not worry about it damaging any of your clothes!
So goodBought this for my partner and she loves it, easy to use and reliable
Best Straightening Iron Ever!!!OMG! This thing is a machine. Cannot believe how quickly it straightens my hair. It has now cut my hair straightening time in half. My sister purchased a different straightener for similar price. Once she tried mine, she bought a Cloud Nine as well. The wide plate makes it quicker to straighten your hair as it covers more ground. Definitely one of my best buys by far!
BESTI have had GHDs, MUK straighteners and since buying my cloud nine I’m obsessed! Will never go back to any other straightener
AmazingMy hairdresser used this on me and I was amazed by the results. My hair is naturally straight but very fluffy and this tamed all my fly-aways and fluff without pulling my volume down. My hair also felt silky smooth after!
Awesomegreat straightener, for near straight hair, doesn't frizzy my hair

Best straightenerI got this straightener back at Christmas as an upgrade from my GHD V and it’s so much better. The larger wide plate is so good on my thick hair and makes straightening a lot easier and time efficient.
Great for thick hairI have very thick, fine hair and this wide straightener is amazing! Just with one smooth touch, my hair is looking great. No need to work hair over and over! Definitely worth the money.
excellent resultsthis straighteners straightens my thick hair in minutes and does not damage them too much like the other straighteners. i am very happy with mine and i hope it will last a few more years before i would have to replace it.
Absolute Favourite styling tool!!I have use heaps of different heat styling tool from so many companies, but Cloud Nine is my all time Favourite!!!
It’s one of the only iron products that no matter how old it get my hair still feels silky smooth and is still super shiny!!
had it for years and still leaves me in awei have had this for about 5 years, and it still shocks me how smooth and shiny it leaves my hair. it keeps it straight for a few day, definitely recommend
Keeps my hair straight for daysBrought this product a couple of months ago due to a recommendation and WOW. Straightens my hair so quickly and stays syraight for days. Love it 10/10
Naturally thick, long hair. Sleek and shiny until next washLove this straightner. My hair feels so much smoother and shinier compared to when using my old GHD. Love the adjustable heat setting. Takes less that 10 to straighten my long hair
AwesomeBest out there ive tried a lot and its my favourite
Daily essentialMy husband bought me this for my birthday after my 8 yr old GHD finally started going in the fritz and I ADORE this iron!
The wider tong is perfect for wizzing through my extremely thick, long hair and I love the the heat is adjustable so I can turn it right down on those days i just need a quick smooth over rather than intense styling so I can avoid unnecessary heat damage.
Best ever!I had a cloud 9 when they first came out and after it died tried GHD again. I went back to cloud 9 after 19/20 people recommended them over GHD. I like that you can adjust the heat and went with the wide plates as I have hair extensions. You can curl with the wide plate
Amazing straightener!I have had my cloud 9 since they came out in 2013! It’s been going for 6 years and still works amazing. I think I’ll cry when it eventually dies lol.
Expensive but you just can’t beat it. Does a great job every time!
LOVE LOVE LOVEBye GHD hello Cloud nine! My sister bought this a month ago and I have completely ditched my old god! It is a god send, I have quite thick hair and this makes straightening a dream! could not recommend more, I love it!
Cannot fault!!I have been using this hair straightener for well over a year now and I cannot fault it. It leaves hair very shiny and has several heat settings that can be adjusted to suit my hairs natural waves etc. It comes with a plastic heat protectant for the straightener head, heat resistant bag and clips to make application easier. Highly recommend after using the ghd several times, worth the extra cost.
recommended by hairdresserMy hairdresser uses this straightening iron and recommended me to get it as I was looking for one. Must I say, this does an amazing job and leaves flawless results
PERFECT FOR THICK HAIR!I have had this straightener for about 3 years now and cannot fault It!
I find myself taking it everywhere with me as no other straightener works as well as this one for my thick, long & wavy hair!
It straightens my hair quickly and with ease and leaves a beautiful finish!
Well worth the higher price tag!
Best straightner everI borrowed my sister in laws Cloud nine one day and fell in love so i had to buy one for myself.
It makes my hair soo shiny and feels like silk. I love it.
Very impressedI have long, thick wavy hair and this straightener works like a dream on my hair! This was recommended by my hairdresser recently as I was interested in upgrading and I am so happy that I made the purchase... it straightens my hair perfectly and effortlessly.
Better than ghd!I’ve been a loyal user of ghd since they came onto the market. I was less than impressed with the quality of my last ghd so I bit the bullet and bought the cloud 9.
I haven’t regretted that decision for a second.
The quality and feel of the cloud 9 is amazing. Having control over the heat settings means I can use less heat to go over my hair on the second day.
Better that GHDLove this, I have had mine for over 3 years and have not had one problem with it. I have quite thick hair and the thicker plate gets the job done quicker. I also think its better than GHD! 10/10
Better than GHDThe wider iron makes straightening my thick long hair so much easier!
Best hairstraightener out there!Leaves your hair soft, non frizzy and doesn’t damage your hair like most straighteners do! Worth every cent!
Best present everI was gifted this for my birthday and holy moly it’s just amazing.
It get hot almost instantly and allows you to change the temperature of the iron depending on how course your hair is.
I know you can buy cheaper ones but cloud 9 is a reputable brand and it has really great reviews.
I would suggest this iron to others
Cloud nine wide iron... best straightener for thick coarse hair.The wide iron cloud nine straightener is absolutely amazing...I have thick black, coarse, wavy long hair. Always struggled with my ordinary Remington as my hair would not stay poker straight for long....had been very skeptical to spend $300 on a straightener but I had to take that chance...and it was worth it... this is the best I have used to far, hair is smooth and straight for days or till I w...Read More
Am yet to find anything betterBeautiful iron - super quick and gets the job done in minimal time. I have bleached hair with oily roots and dry ends. I love that you can also control the heat settings on it as well.
Best straightener!My ghd of nearly 10 years broke and I needed to upgrade and I heard cloud nine was the new go to hair straightener and I was not disappointed. It makes my hair looks so smooth and shiny! Does a great curl too!!
Best Gift ever!I got the wide iron last year fro Christmas and its a life saver!! Ive got confused thick curly, frizzy hair that is not easy to tame. But the wide iron works so smoothly and even makes my hair shinny and not frizzy at all! I recommend this to every wavy or curly haired person! it's amazing.
GHD has nothing on Cloud 9I used to swear by my GHD, however, since my trusty 2007 GHD fell apart I decided to do some research before jumping right into the GHD bandwagon again, and thank goodness I did! I trusted those amazing reviews on the Cloud 9 and I am so happy I did, my Cloud 9 is honestly 100× better than my GHD ever was. I never have fly aways, my hair is always so sleek, smooth and shiny after I straighten it a...Read More
Amazing hair straightenerI loved the product, very stylish, reduced damage after use, arrived quickly and gives awesome results.
Ride or DIESo much better than my old GHD straightener!
I have super frizzy, curly hair and this works like a dream!!!
makes my hair nicefeels very nice on the hair
Best iron everReally the most amazing iron. The effect lasts longer whether I straighten or do waves, and my hair feels and looks amazing after using. I put the temp at 150 degrees, and my hair is super healthy. Great investment!
Best Straightener - Will never use another brand!I have crazy unruly curls that always seemed to defy the best of straighteners but with the cloud nine my hair is silky smooth in 20mins (used to take an hour!)
My hair feels smoother and stay straighter for longer with this wonder iron - definitely buy this product if you have crazy frizzy hair - you won't regret it!
Best Iron i have used!Best Iron i have ever used! Adjustable temperature which is great for my fine wispy hair around my forehead and ears that doesn't need a high temp to straighten minimising breakage. Plates are smooth and don't snag or get stuck so you get an even finish without pulling out strands of hair (which is what my GHD used to do) Highly recommend!
Awesomemy favourite straightener in the literal world highly recommend. fast at straightening even curly hair
Love loveLove my cloud nine, quick to straighten. Has the option to change the temperature which is great because my hair is thin so it doesn’t dry out as much and the plates are amazing
