Cloud Nine, the newly launched hair styling brand that’s been taking the hairdressing world by storm, has created its new micro iron with male grooming in mind. Gone are the days when you have to steal your girlfriend’s straighteners, this sleek, black gadget – measuring a compact six inches – comes complete with a neat turquoise heat-proof cover, giving you wash bag-sized perfection. Developed by the original founders and creators of ghd*, the Cloud Nine micro iron boasts the latest technology in hair styling, including universal high voltage for use abroad without losing essential power, hibernation mode, which automatically switches the irons off after 10 minutes, and the tiniest, most powerful plates on the market.

For the travellers out there, it also has an international plug tucked inside the regular plug, which means you don’t have to fiddle with adapters.

And, for the followers of fashion; the Cloud Nine micro iron is perfect to get the foundations of the looks showcased on male catwalks for spring/summer – volumous quiffs or slick, side partings. Men’s hair in 2010 is masculine with a glamorous edge and the irons will allow you to smooth, style, straighten and create textures wherever you are.

Black ceramic plates

There are some trade secrets we can’t share. Take our black ceramic plates. The special and mysterious ingredient we’ve incorporated into them gives hair added shine and sparkle, each and every time they are used.

Heat guard

As soon as your client has finished using their irons, they can clasp them back together, slip on the protective heat guard and allow them to cool down knowing that they’ve safely left them resting.

Hibernation mode

This intelligent sleep technology automatically kicks in when the irons have been switched on, but not used for thirty minutes. When in this mode they’ll cool down to ‘box temperature’, and only reheat once they’re switched off and on again.

RFID chip

The state-of-the-art RFID chip allows us to identify each iron with its own unique ID number. This means we can track each iron and monitor it throughout its working life to ensure it’s a genuine product only sold through authorised Cloud Nine stockists. This technology is designed to protect you from fraud or mis-selling.

Dual adaptor

All Cloud Nine irons are supplied with a standard two-pin Euro plug, but have been fitted with a UK 3-amp adaptor. To use the iron in a country outside of the UK that uses the two-pin Euro plug, simply remove the screw that’s positioned between the three pins and remove the adaptor from the two-pin plug.
