When I reviewed the Hana blow dryer a few weeks ago I mentioned how much I'd love to try their flat irons because the dryer was so great so the nice people at Misikko sent me the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" for review and I'm happy to report that it's as great as the dryer.
First off, I hardly ever pay attention to how a flat iron looks. You'll never catch me with a zebra print or a crystal studded flat iron I just want a high quality professional hair straightener that I know is going to smooth out my frizz without frying my hair. So, I was shocked at how much I love the look of this iron. When I saw the periwinkle blue plates against the sleek black iron it had me at hello. I was also impressed with the leather case that comes with it and that it includes a silicone heat proof mat.
The iron heats up very quickly so by the time I had smoothed some heat protectant into my hair and combed it through the iron was ready to go. I was interested to see if I could tell a difference between the regular plates in my old flat iron and the "floating plates that adjust to hair texture" in the Hana pro. You can't but my hair didn't get snagged in this one like it tends to in other flat irons I've used so, I suppose you can tell a difference you just can't feel them move.
The feature I loved best about this iron is the ergonomic handle. I don't usually like pin straight hair on me but I'm a serious klutz when I try to curl my hair with a flat iron and I usually just end up giving up and using a curling iron but the shape of this iron and the swivel cord make it easy. I think this is the first time I've curled my hair with a flat iron that I didn't almost drop it while I was curling!
The only thing I didn't like about this iron was the fact that it has a dial for the temperature settings instead of a digital one. I guess I just like to be precise when I'm setting the temperature, plus, the digital ones are easier to read but that's the worst thing I can think of to say about the Hana and it's certainly a minor complaint. I did like that the dial was located in a spot where I didn't keep bumping it and resetting the temperature.
I also love that because of the tourmaline ceramic plates your hair can still be a tiny bit damp when you use it. That saves time when I'm just touching up my second day hair that has gotten slightly damp in the shower.
The Hana professional flat iron is currently on sale for $119.98 which is already a great price for such a high quality flat iron in my opinion since both of my other flat irons were more expensive and I like this one the best but if you shop now and add the coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY you can get $10 off orders over $100!
