Our favourite show is back! And we can't think of a better time of year to get our first dose of 2023 sunshine.

To celebrate the return to island life we have searched the archives for nine hair looks we LOVE from previous series. Some you may remember and some you may not. 

Have we picked one of your favourites?

Also, no spoilers but keep an eye out for the hair styling tools in the dressing room this year 😉


We were OBSESSED with Shannon’s hair here at CLOUD NINE HQ. So naturally, we were all devastated when she was dumped from the island on the second day. We all wanted to see what more she would bring to the villa. However, after one of the most savage exits, she is still one of the most memorable islanders. Take a look at our step-by-step on how to create Shannon's signature sleek, straight, and super shiny look with the CLOUD NINE Original Iron Pro.


Looking back to summer 2019 and India for her perfectly polished look. India gave us all serious hair envy with her super glossy, Hollywood waves and sleek and straight looks. To recreate gorgeous waves using the CLOUD NINE Wide Iron take a look at our step-by-step blog, or if a wand is more your vibe shop the CLOUD NINE Waving Wand.

Montana showed us all how to style a super glam look around the pool with a bouncy blow-dry. Take a look at our tutorial for how to create this signature style using CLOUD NINE tools.


Lucinda sported some super cute styles during her time in the villa, including space buns and fishtail braids. Want to know how to replicate Lucinda's looks this year? We've got you. Follow our step by steps on how to create a fishtail braid and how to create space buns for a couple of fail-safe up-dos in winter or summer sun.


Everyone loved Millie's cool girl look. Her chic bob showed us all how versatile you can be with this gorgeous chop. Take a look at our bob and mid-length inspired blog for our favourite looks and how you can style yours using CLOUD NINE tools.


2019 brought us Amber's full volume curls and natural texture. Volumised and defined curls are easy to create or maintain. Take a look at our tutorial on how to turn up your curls using the CLOUD NINE Texture Wand.


We couldn't talk about memorable hair looks without talking about Molly Mae. Molly Mae's hair was possibly the most copied of all the islander's looks. Her signature bun and blow-dried locks will always be iconic.


G Steel got our vote with her cute half up half down look and beach waves as seen here when she paid us a visit at CLOUD NINE HQ. Recreate Georgia's half up half down look from 2018 using CLOUD NINE tools using our step by steps...

Last year's winner Ekin Su wowed us all with her bombshell entrance and we were OBSESSED with her hair. Glossy and gorgeous, sunkissed highlights, and waved to the gods - our dream holiday hair basically!
