Product Review: Misikko's Hana Flat Iron

I had the privilege of testing out one of Misikko's new additions to their Ceramic Flat Irons!  John, from Misikko, was extremely generous in sending me samples, travel cases and other products along with the Hana Professional Pink Flat Iron.  Apologies to Misikko for taking so long to launch this post, but here it is :)

The flat iron was marvelous!  Yes, that's the first word that comes to mind.  To be honest, I was comparing it to the CHI flat iron, which I current own and the hana flat iron had high standards to meet.

  • A little too pink for me
  • Heats up SUPER fast (Approx 45 seconds)
  • Has several different heat settings
  • Makes my hair feel silky smooth afterward
  • Straightens hair really well at only medium temperature
Overall, it's a terrific product and I highly recommend it!!  It made my hair feel silky smooth and created a super straight look.  I had taken photos of the results, but once I uploaded them, I realized my shirt didn't allow the true results to I will wear a lighter colour next time I use the iron, and post the results.  I especially love that it came with a heat-proof travel case and a rubber mat (shown in the above picture) to place my iron on - very useful!

It's not easy being a hand model!

My friend and fellow blogger, Steph of Makeup Babble / Nail Babble, did my nails today and had me model them for her new business cards - it was such an honour, and tons of fun!  Just look at the designs - how could that not be fun?!  Steph, you did an amazing job and I've already received tons of compliments on my nails...not just because of the loudness, but because of the quality and uniqueness!

The photoshoot was fun...ny :) We shot it in the trunk of her SUV and because it was quite breezy, my goosebumps were pretty intense!  We also had trouble working the DSLR, even though I've taken a course in the past, but luckily my boyfriend came home and helped us figure it out.  These pictures turned out much better than I would have imagined :) and I am loving the vibrancy of them!  Which nail is your favourite design?

Getting my nails done like this and chatting it up with Steph inspired me to get back into nail art, learn some new tricks...and BLOG!  I've been wanting to get back into blogging regularly for hair, makeup & nail tips, so I've started tonight :)

Stay tuned for a review on a Flat Iron Straightener from Misikko!
