I May Not Be Hopeless!

     I’m not sure if you know this, but I am very, very, very, very bad at doing my hair.  I’m serious.  It looks the exact same every single day.  I wake up, wash it, blow dry it upside down, and maybe spray it if it’s looking out of control.  On a good day, it looks like this:

 or this:
     On a day when I’m feeling less than ambitious…or whenever I don’t blow dry it, this is what I get:
Review Before
I know…

     The sweethearts at Misikko must have heard of my plight because they came through for me in a big way.  A few weeks ago I was contacted asking if I would be interested in reviewing a HANA Pro 1” flat iron – um yes! 
     As far as straighteners go…I don’t even know where my old one came from.  For all I know it just appeared in my cabinet one day.  When Misikko offered to send me a professional hair straightener, I was pretty excited.  I had been kicking around the idea of getting myself a straightener, but nothing I could have picked out would have compared to this…and certainly would not have come with the same customer service.


     My straightener arrived with a silicone pad (so that it won’t burn the surface it’s sitting on), a heat proof storage case, and a leather carrying case.  (Not to mention all the extra goodies Misikko threw in the box!)  I could tell right away that this was no run of the mill straightener.  You can get first hand info about all of the details here, but I can definitely tell you that fancy or not, this thing is so  user friendly. 
     I am almost hopeless with a straightener, but this one is so easy to use.  You just turn it on (up to 400+ if you need it), and it’s skinny, little body just zips right through your hair.  Added bonus?  The cord has a 360 degree swivel…so it won’t tangle!  The whole thing is so lightweight, which is great for me because my arms tend to get tired if I spend to much time on my hair (…I know).  After about ten minutes (heating up and all), I went from that ridiculous mess of a look up there to this:

Review After

     Because the straightener was so easy to manipulate, I was able to pull up on my hair as I straightened and keep a ton of volume!  The skinny plates were perfect for my bangs, too.  If you didn’t know, my hair is super fine, and most straighteners  either crease it or fry it.  This did neither of those things.  I can definitely see myself using this even on days when I don’t straighten all of my hair.  It will be perfect for touch ups or fixing my bangs (which tend to be totally out of control). 
     So it looks like I can add another look into my alternating schedule! My next little goal will be to figure out how to curl with it…they sent a little book telling me how, but they overestimate me.
     Couple things:  1.  If you’re looking for a straightener, I can wholeheartedly recommend this one.  2.  If you’re looking to buy anything hair related, you would be crazy not to check out Misikko!  Their customer service has been out of this world!  You should definitely click over and check them out…right now.
Thanks again, Misikko!
