Review: HANA Professional Flat Iron

I've been in the market for a new flat iron for quite a while (as my original $40 ceramic iron purchased in 2001 has cracked and peeling plates), but I've been putting off the investment.  I'm so happy that {Misikko} contacted me to review their {Hana professional flat iron} - the timing is perfect!  I was unfamiliar with both Misikko and the Hana brand, so I found out that Misikko is an eight-year old company based outside of Philadephia that sells professional styling tools and beauty products.  {Hana products} are some of their top sellers.

The flat iron that was sent to me features:
  • Ceramic-tourmaline floating plates
  • Curved plate edges for straightening or curling
  • Adjustable temperature dial (140-450°)
  • A full swivel cord
  • Storage pouch and silicone mat

Here are the reasons I loved it:
  • The plates glided so smoothly over my hair - no snagging or pulling.
  • It was lightweight and didn't feel heavy in my hands.
  • It heated up very quickly.
  • I found it easy to straighten or to curl my hair.
  • My hair felt and looked shiny afterwards.
  • I really liked the silicone mat that was included - I didn't have to worry about burning my countertop.
  • All my students told me how pretty my hair looked.

My hair straightened with the Hana Professional Flat Iron
My hair curled with the Hana Professional Flat Iron

It's certainly not the least expensive model on the market at $119, but I highly recommend trying it out.  Misikko provided great service and sent the flat iron with lots of extra goodies in the box.  Check out their other {flat irons} and {curling irons}.  If you already have a Hana product or end up purchasing one, let me know in the comments!

*This product was sent to me for review, but the opinions expressed are my own.
