The one item I can't live without in my everyday beauty regimen is my flat iron. I have hair with a slight natural wave in it, and it can be difficult to deal with. I've been flat ironing my hair for years, and with my shorter hair cut, I've discovered how important a good flat iron can be. That's why I was excited when Misikko offered to send me a new flat iron to review. They sent me the Hana Professional 1" Flat Iron in Pink (it made me happy that it was pink!) to try out.
The iron came in a pink pouch tucked into a tin case. It also came with a silicone mat and a travel pouch. This comes in handy because the iron can get very hot and it's nice to have something to put it down on. The travel pouch is a necessity for me because I like to toss my flat iron into my bag (after the gym or on a trip) without having to worry about it cooling down.
Now, onto the iron. The iron heated up to the highest setting in under a minute, but it has 5 different temperature settings so you can adjust it to what you need. I am a nut and I like to straighten my hair at the hottest setting possible. The iron was easy to run through my hair, and straightened it easily, I only had to run it through just once. The edges are curved so you can curl your hair with it and do flips with it (I am not that talented just yet). The 1" size was perfect for my short hair, and I think that it really smoothed out my hair! I used this hair iron before taking my photos in my OOTD today and I really liked the way it turned out. (Oh and I also trimmed my own bangs, not really sure how I feel about them currently.) Overall, I was very impressed with this iron and its results. I'm sitting here typing this towards the end of the day and my hair is still straight and has kept its style.
