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).


  1. Looks like it does a beautiful job! Her hair looks incredibly sleek and shiny. And yes, that cardigan is absolutely amazing. Wonderful review!

  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!

  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.


  7. I have a similar Hana straightener too (it's pink!) and absolutely love it.


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
