From Curly-Wurly to Sexy & Straight {Flat Iron Product Review}

{Full Disclosure: Misikko provided me with the Hana Professional 1.5" Hair Straightener for use however all content and opinions expressed are mine. I have not been financially compensated by Misikko for this product review.}

When Misikko contacted me and asked if I would be willing to review their Hana Professional 1.5" Flat Iron, I jumped at the opportunity because a) my current flat iron's plates recently fell out due to over-use and over-loving and b) I'm like a kid in the candy store when I receive snail mail and better yet if it's a package containing beauty products!


I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw flowers, ribbons and bows-a perfect way to wrap the gift!


And then eye shades? They must have known that I sleep with a pair nightly and could use a change of scenery!


Lots of goodies awaited before I even got to the hair straightener...


And then ta-da! The prized possession flat iron!


To test out the hair straightener I recruited my best friend whose naturally curly locks would put the hair straightener to the test better than my limp, flat hair ever could!


So I started working away like an amateur hairdresser yanking her poor hair in every which direction.


Starting to see results already....


Voila! A beautiful sleek shine perfect for a night on the town (P.S. don't you just love her cardigan!?)

The Hana Professional 1.5" Flat Iron sailed through her hair like butter and was packaged nicely in a tin box with it's own pouch and a silicone mat so you don't ruin your surfaces with the heat.  The only changes I would make would be a longer cord (I'm the kind of gal who likes to multi-task while straightening hair so might not always be right beside a cord) and I found the Hana Shine Shield product quite greasy (I'll make sure to use less next time). 

If you're in the market for a new hair straightener and don't mind spending a bit more for a high quality product then I definitely recommend checking out Misikko (they also carry Chi Irons & Moroccan Oil).

  2. I love that you found a test subject - since I cut my hair short I've been using a flat iron every day and really need to invest in a good quality one!

  3. Oh man, I got the same straightener in the mail last week and have been meaning to post a review! I too may need to use my curly-haired friend, so please don't think I'm single-white-femaling you.

  6. Wow. That's great. I love how they packaged it alone. But the results are undeniable. Holy crap. Gorgeous sleek hair is absolutely right. Plus, your bf is so cute. She made me smile.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
