Summary

The Cloud Nine curling wand is perfect for those who prefer setting their own specific temperature rather than using a single temperature. It’s also great if you are looking for a curling wand that you can use to create a wide variety of curls and waves.

What are you buying?

Cloud Nine introduced temperature control when it debuted its first styler in 2010 and they never miss a chance to show it off. So obviously that’s the main feature they tout in the Cloud Nine Curling Wand.

But there are other features that make this wand a great buy for those who want gorgeous lasting curls and waves.

You can use it to create a variety of curly styles from boyish ringlets to professional curls and beach waves. It also includes a couple of safety features to protect your skin and your surfaces.

 

Key features of Cloud Nine Curling Wand

1. Temperature control

This is the crown of the Cloud Nine curling wand. With a flick of a button, you can change the heat from low to medium to high. This allows you to choose the heat level that you are most comfortable with and which is ideal for your hair type.

If you have thick hair for instance, the HIGH setting is ideal while fine or damaged hair is best styled with the LOW setting. For most people, the MED setting is enough to form lasting curls.

The three temperature levels range between 125 and 175 degrees.

2. Mineral-infused ceramic barrel

The Cloud Nine uses a ceramic wand that heats up quickly and spreads heat evenly throughout. Not only does this protect your hair from damage, it also ensures your hair curls evenly.

Additionally, the barrel has a mineral coating that gives your hair a sleek glossy finish. When you are done curling, you’ll look like you’ve just stepped out of a salon.

3. Heat glove and kickstand

The barrel gets pretty hot. It’s easy to singe your fingers as you wrap your hair around the wand no matter how careful you are.

To make sure you can style your hair comfortably without any worries, Cloud Nine includes a heat protective glove. Wear the heat-proof glove on your styling hand (not the one holding the styler) to protect your fingers.

When you are done styling, use the kickstand on the styler to prevent the hot wand from damaging your surfaces.

4. Auto shutoff

In the morning rush to get out early and beat traffic, it’s easy to forget to turn off the styler. A super-hot piece of metal left lying around is obviously dangerous especially in a house with kids or pets.

Thankfully, the Cloud Nine curling wand has an automatic hibernation feature. After 35 minutes of staying idle, it automatically turns off. So don’t keep fretting at work wondering whether you turned off the wand.

How easy is it to use?

Compared to curlers with a clip, such as the ghd Classic Curl Tong, the Cloud Nine wand requires a bit more work.

You have to wrap your hair around the wand yourself. On the upside, it provides more style versatility. You can wrap your hair in different ways to produce different curl sizes and styles.

The heat settings are really easy to use. Use the button to change from one heat level to another. An indicator light will tell you which heat level you are currently on.

The cord is long enough that you will not strain at all when curling your hair. You can stand or sit while still reaching all hair sections comfortably.

What accessories are included?

The Cloud Nine curling wand comes with a small luxury bag, perfect for travelling. Because the bag is heat-resistant, you can place the wand inside without waiting for it to cool.

Pros

  • Travel-friendly.
  • Easy to use.
  • Temperature control.
  • Heat glove and kickstand for safety.

Cons

  • Lower max temperature. It takes longer to style thick hair.

Anything else you should know?

If you are not sure which temperature level is right for your hair, use the Auto button. The auto mode uses the MED heat level and maintains it there. It’s hot enough to effectively curl most types of hair but not too hot to cause hair damage.

Final verdict

The Cloud Nine curling wand is perfect for those who prefer setting their own specific temperature rather than using a single temperature.

It’s also great if you are looking for a curling wand that you can use to create a wide variety of curls and waves. Nice, medium-size curls for office days and casual rolling waves for the weekend.

And if you are going on a weeklong business conference or a holiday getaway, the luxury travel bag comes in handy.
