A hair straightener is a must have for a girl. I’ve never considered it to be such an essential, but whether you have straight or curly hair, it comes in handy, right?? Do most of you use or have a straightener or am I just making a crazy assumption?
I’ve been using the same hair straightener for 5 years and it has finally died. Lucky for me (I rarely get lucky, in any way), Misikko sent me the HANA Titanium 1.5″ flat iron and saved my life. And my hair. And my chance at meeting cute boys. Because cute boys care how our hair looks. Just kidding, they don’t give a shit.
I’m not a big hair person. I style my hair the same way all the time. I’m boring. And lazy. I’ve heard a lot of things about the Chi flat iron, but WTF is Hana? Apparently a pretty good luxury straightener.
The straightener comes in a tin box and includes a travel case, heat proof mat and pouch. I’m also a fan of the sleek black color, and hot pink logo. I like pretty things. If you don’t, you can check out Misikko’s top 10, recommended best flat irons.
So, how does Hana perform? I used it to straighten and curl my rather awful hair.
unstyled, unstraightened, unpretty
The Hana straightener works really well for straightening hair. It glides smoothly and irons out bends and kinks. As for curling hair, it’s also smooth and easy to work with, especially since this plate is 1.5″ instead of 1″, but the curl doesn’t hold for long on my hair. Mucho hairspray needed. With my previous straightener, no hair spray was required and the curl lasted a few days. I found it odd, but hey, not complaining.
I’m happy with this straightener. It satisfies my needs, and curls my hair… which is actually more important to me than straightening hair. Anyone else use a straightener to curl? It’s super easy and super fast. But if you’re the type that prefers using a curling iron, Misikko has a good selection of them too. I have the hot tools curler, but I never use it anymore.
PS – straightening and curling were done on 2 separate days, on clean hair.
