I have straight hair, so you’re probably wondering why I’d use a flat iron. I use it to take some of the volume out of my hair, especially at the bottom.  I have a slight wave underneath the top straight layers and a flat iron smooths out those wavy layers beautifully.

I was fortunate to receive a Hana Professional Flat Iron recently from online retailer Misikko to try out and review. I have to say, it is the best flat iron I’ve tried so far.  It has heat settings from 140-450 degrees Fahrenheit so it’s perfect for every hair texture.  I use it at 450° since I have really thick and strong hair.  Damaged or color treated hair is better at the 140° end of the spectrum.  It’s super lightweight and has a 1″ wide plate, which with my new shorter hair, is perfect.

One of the features I love about the Hana Professional is the led light – it’s solid while the iron is heating and once it reaches the temperature you’ve set, it blinks to let you know it’s ready. This way there’s no guessing about the temperature and no need to touch the iron with a finger and risk a burn.   I also love that it has an on/off switch that’s separate from the temperature wheel.  I also love the long cord (8ft) and that it swivels-it makes styling a breeze.   I also appreciate the pink color.  I love the pop of color!

Misikko sells more than great flat irons. They also sell professional hair dryers, including a gorgeous Ed Hardy model, but I have my eye on the Solano Super Solano Micro 3600 Hair Dryer.  It’s the hair dryer of my dreams. Now if it only came in pink, it’d be perfect!  They also have professional curling irons in all sizes.  They also carry Hana, Chi, Paul Mitchell, and Model in a Bottle styling products and accessories.
