misikko hana flat iron review & giveaway

May 15, 2010 separator giveaway

via Aquahearts Obsessions
I recently had the opportunity to try a Hana Professional Flat Iron 1″ in the Pink Edition from Misikko, which I’m sure you’ve seen around. Misikko has been sweeping the blogging world lately, so I was definitely excited to have the opportunity to share the goods with you guys! Misikko has a wide range of salon-quality products, including professional hair dryers and flat irons, including the ever-coveted  CHI, as well as a full line of curling irons and shine serums. The site is really well-organized and easy to navigate, and you can find all the straightening goodies in their best flat irons section. 

Now – onto the review! My hair is definitely not terribly unwieldy. It is rather thin and straight, so I have never really had to use a flat iron before. However, the Hana still worked wonders for me. A few quick passes with this straightener gave me shiny, sleek, fresh-from-the-salon locks that I could never manage otherwise. The shine serum that was included with the iron made my hair look impossibly shiny (though I’ll admit that the scent was a bit off-putting). The ceramic plates are very smooth and don’t snag or catch at all, like some of my friends’ straighteners that I have tried. Also – and this is a biggie for me – the cord swivels, so it never ends up getting ridiculously tangled. The iron has an on/off switch, which is really convenient, and the heat adjusts all the way up to 450°, perfect for all hair types and textures. The edges do get a bit hot, so be careful when using it that you don’t touch too close to the plates.

Customer service? Misikko has this one down to a science. My flat iron came in a little tin with a travel pouch, a velvety case, a silicone mat to set it on, a generous bottle of heat-protecting shine serum, and even some extra goodies, like nail files and hand sani in cute little organza bags. To top it all off, everything was tide up with a big ribbon bow and had a cute little white rose in the box. This was definitely a fun package to unwrap! 


The Giveaway
Featured by Marie Claire? Gotta be good!

One Shrimpy lady gets to unwrap her very own Hana Professional Flat Iron 1″ – Pink Edition, complete with everything I described in the review. This is a great deal, since this iron is  normally sold for $204.99! The entries are a bit different for this one, so pay close attention. This is also only open to the US and Canada because of the voltage requirements. This giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday, May 23.
