Cloud Nine: The Original Iron

Cloud Nine is the creation of Robert Powls. Those in the know might recognise this name as the founder of the hugely successful GHD styling product company, founded in 2009. Their philosophy was to create luxury and innovative styling products that are kinder to your hair.

We had the pleasure of testing out The Original Iron, one of Cloud Nine’s most popular products and winner of the 2015 and 2016 Hair Award. We were keen to see what all the fuss was about.


The TYME Iron is a hair styling tool that allows you to either curl or straighten your hair by changing the position or the rotation of the irons. The heated plates are gold-plated titanium and look beautiful -  in fact, the entire iron is very attractive and appears high quality (even salon quality), but that where my praise for the TYME Iron will end.
