Festive Ready with Cloud 9

Christmas party season is right around the corner and with that comes everything we need to make ourselves party ready. From the sparkly dress to the festive make up and big hair, it's the season the majority of us go all out. With my dress already hung in the wardrobe, heels ready and my Chanel red waiting to be used, all that leaves is what to do with my hair. I'm straight up boring when it comes to my mane. I wear my hair down all the time, I'm really unadventurous and hate wearing it up so a good pair of straighteners are my best friend. I've never bought into the hype that is GHD, I've used a trusty pair of £20 Nicky Clarkes for years but after seeing Cloud 9 in action at the Blogger's Festival I kinda fell in love... big time.

For the past month I've been teasing my tresses straight with the Cloud 9 Wide Iron Straighteners from their Emilio de la Morena Christmas gift set. I have super thick hair so these are the perfect pair of hair tools for me as they control and style the thickest of hair which makes me one very happy blogger. Between the irons is the on/off switch which just slides up and down. I'm forever thinking I've left mine on when I leave the house so to hear a satisfying click each time I turn them off is really reassuring. If you've ever had that panic when you're nowhere near your house then you'll know exactly what I mean. 

The straighteners heat up in seconds, faster than any pair I've ever owned. The heat is controlled between the irons and flashes until the acquired temperature is reached. The maximum temperature can be reached in just 20 seconds and it takes barely any time at all to style my hair. I use them on 150c and get better results at that temperature than I ever have with my Nicky Clarkes on high. They glide through my hair leaving it perfectly straight without damaging or drying out my hair. They're also really light to use which is a deal breaker for me because I get serious arm ache while styling my hair so something lighter than a cloud (geddit?!) ticks all my boxes.

These hair saviours come in a heat resistant bag designed by Emilio de la Morena which makes them super luxe and perfect for Christmas. I'd be very happy if I found these under the Christmas tree. All Cloud 9 straighteners are available via the website, with this particular pair being priced at £135 with free UK delivery. 

Have you ever used Cloud 9 before?
