Hana Titanium Flat Iron: A Review

About a month ago, I was contacted by Misikko and asked to do a review of one of their latest products, the Hana Titanium flat iron! I was really excited about this because I have not bought a new flat iron in about... 4 years. Along with my excitement, I was also a little wary. I've experimented with the expensive flat iron products like Chi in the past and they never live up to the hype. To be frank, I am not a Chi promoter. They just don't work on my hair. I have a poofy texture, so no salon-quality flat iron has ever worked. Or, it has worked, but made my hair paper thin and oily. I'm one of those weirdos who likes a little frizz in my hair, so it's really important that my hair not be plastered to by scalp! 

When I walked outside and ran around the house trying to find which door the UPS guy left my package by, I was surprised to see a big box! The sweet people at Misikko sent lots of extra goodies along with the flat iron! 

After taking these photos, of course, I immediately plugged in the flat iron and tried it out. This particular model is 1.5", so it was an adjustment from my 4-year old 1". Once I got used to the extra iron space and maneuvering a larger tool than I was used to, I loved it! The packaging came with a heat settings guide, too! I have always been confused with the heat settings vs. hair texture/etc. stuff, so having that really helped. Plus, the cord is crazy long! I can walk to the other end of my bathroom and still be plugged in. Awesome!

Overall, after using the Hana for a few weeks (usually using it for curling, not flattening), I have adjusted to the extra length! I also love how smooth it makes my hair without taking any of the body (and my preferred slight frizz) out! I am really impressed with this product as a whole and am almost ready to toss my old rinky-dink flat iron in the trash. Not quite yet... I'll keep it tucked away for, you know, just in case.



  1. Wow, your hair looks great! Straight, but still full, love it!




  2. Whoa, your looks so pretty! Shiny and still looks like it has movement - pretty!

  4. Looks like the straightener does a great job! My hair is similar to yours... it takes me forever to straighten everyday. I'll be curious of your updates on this flat iron!
