Two Hairstyles, One Tool and GIVEAWAY!

There are 2 reasons to justify splurging on a product: it gets great reviews and it serves more than one purpose. I can wholeheartedly say that this product satisfies both requirements. Ever since I started using the Hana Professional Ceramic Flat Iron by Misikko (a website featuring many professional straighteners), I've discarded my bulky hot rollers and old flat iron. This is one sleek tool that straightens and curls equally well.

Take a look at the exquisite packaging this comes in:

The pink pouch is chic and is small enough to stow into a carry-on bag. The pink pouch comes in a beautiful tin box, which would make this a great gift too. For every-day storage, you can use the black pouch. The rubber mat is meant to hold the hot flat iron while in use, but I don't think it's necessary because they've done a good job at insulating the iron in such a way that it doesn't harm surfaces. The iron itself is compact, and the temperature dials and on-off switches are neatly tucked inside the flat iron. The manual also tells you what temperature to choose depending on the condition of your hair. Cool.

Compared to my old flat iron, the Hana Professional is so much more compact, travel-friendly and just plain stylish. I feel like I'm channeling Elle Woods with this thing.

In the picture below, you can see my normal hair on the left, my straightened hair in the middle, and my curled hair on the right. I straightened my hair in no time, and the Shine Shield serum made my hair look commercial-ready. After looking up a quick YouTube tutorial on how to curl my hair using a flat iron, I got perfect beach-tousled wavy locks.
This is seriously the best flat iron I've ever tried. It not only does a great job at 2 hairstyles without damaging my hair, but it is also super sleek and chic. Misikko also carries Chi straighteners and Corioliss flat irons, which have received rave reviews elsewhere. I'm so happy that I can now sport straight hair and be ready for the must-have summer hair style--messy waves.
