hair talk {hana flat iron}


My straightener pretty much died on me a few months ago (break my heart!) and the amazing company, Misikko, swooped in and put the pieces of my heart back together :) They sent me a Hana flat iron (along with some other hair/make up goodies. Like I said, amazing company!) and I couldn't wait to try it out!


If this isn't the cutest picture ever... I don't know what it is. Ha ha! I let my hair air dry because I have some crazy curls that make an appearance when I don't blow it out. I wanted to see if this flat iron could handle my beastly hair that has a mind of it's own... and I have to admit that I'm so happy with the end result!


Much better... right?! The Hana flat iron has different heat settings which is what I recommend to my clients looking for a straightener. We all have different types of hair, fine or coarse, thick or thin, which means that our hair requires different heat settings. Those with super thin, fine hair can turn the flat iron onto a lower heat setting, and visa versa for those with thick, coarse hair! No need to fry those ends off with too much heat :) And I love how sleek and small the straightener is. Super easy to straighten my hair but it's size is also perfect size for curling! I love my new flat iron :)

P.S. I've been debating whether I should start doing regular posts full of hair tutorials and tips... what do you think?! I love my job as a hairstylist and I'd love to share some knowledge on hair care and tips on hair styles. But if I'm going to bribe my hubs to take pictures of me for these posts, then I need those bribes to be worth it, ha ha! So I need your honest opinion.... do you want to see regular "hair talk" posts?! If so, what would you like me to touch on? Any hair tutorials in particular? Hair care questions? Be honest!! :)

LOVE all and any hair tips you would have. I have fine hair so a lot of the fun looks out there don't work for me.

Any tips on good products to splurge on or to get good steals on would be my first question.

Back when I started straightening my hair (I've got natural curly hair) a friend gifted me with a regular brand straightener that took FOREVER to use on my thick hair. Back in 04 I upgraded to a Chi and I haven't turned back. I've recently had to replace it simply because the on/off switch broke but otherwise I live by that product!

Micah said...

I would enjoy reading any hair tips you had. Weekly or even bi-monthly. It would be great for you to share your knowledge. :)

Ugh. I hate hate hate my thick wavy hair. It's not like "cute" wavy either. Nope. It's ugly frizzy wavy, so I always have to straighten my hair. EVEN before I curl it. It's ridiculous. I had a Sedu iron that I loved, (actually 3 of them) and they all just stopped working after a few months. Those things are expensive so I'm looking into another iron that I could love just as much that won't die on me!

Liesl said...

You look beautiful either way, but love the sleek hair on you! So pretty! :)

Alicia Marie said...

Lookin' good mama! Tutorials would be awesome...except I have no hairr, but I like to learn nonetheless. :)

Cassi @ Stop And Smell The Roses said...

I would LOVE some hair tutorials! I have really thick but fine hair. It's naturally pretty curly/ wavy except for my top layer which is straight. I usually end up just pulling it back in a messy bun after I get out of the shower, but am tired of feeling lazy about doing my hair. I would love to learn about good hair product for my type of hair!

Jennifer said...

I WISH my hair looked that good natural. Mine is a HUGE FRIZZY MESS!
