Fashion - Beauty - Misikko Pink Flat Iron-Giveaway




My oldest daughter, Rachel (22) is a licensed cosmetologist. She was home visiting this past weekend and helped me with a new review item. I received a Professional Flat Iron from Misikko. This salon quality styling tool has a retail price of $204.99. It is currently on sale for: $119.99. Rachel looked this over, and then used it to style her sister Amy's hair. I am going to separate this post into three sections. 1. Details about the product. 2. Pictures of Rachel using the product; and some advice she shares. 3. How you can enter for a chance to win one of these for yourself!

1. Product and Company Details.

Misikko offers a variety of beauty products on their site, such as: a "Chi flat iron," "Babyliss flat iron,” and a "best flat iron." I received the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" Pink Edition for review purposes. The iron came with a travel pouch, heat proof mat, and a tin case. There were a few extras as well - A red pouch containing emery boards and a bottle of hand sanitizer. There was also a lovely plastic white rose! The entire package was elegantly presented.

2. Rachel using the product.


We set up a desk for a work area. The pink mat is where you put the iron so it doesn't burn anything. A normal setting for a salon iron is 450 Degrees. This is so the stylist can work quickly. The nice thing about the Misikko iron is that it offers 4 possible settings, from 230 degrees to 450 degrees. There is even a chart in the accompanying booklet suggesting temperature settings for different hair types.

Rachel used a "dime sized" amount of "shine shield" on Amy's hair. (A 2 oz. bottle came with the kit.) This is essential before using the iron so the heat doesn't damage the hair. It is fine to use the flat iron daily, as long as you use the shine shield first.


Next, Rachel pinned up Amy's hair so she could work with 1/2" sections. Rachel used the 370 degree setting. Straightening the hair makes it smooth and takes out any frizz. This works for both curly or straight hair. Salons in our area charge between $15 - $50 for this service.

Rachel was delighted to hear she gets to keep this iron! She will take it home and use it at work in the salon. The stylish pink color is fun and fashionable. The pink travel case makes it easy for her to carry to-and-from work.

Let's see how Amy looks at the end-



Here's Amy on the left, with her sister, Rachel on the right.

I would love to have a nice flat iron like this. I have a cheap one, but I worry about damaging my hair.

Kathy said...

My daughter has really thick long hair with a bit of wave, but occasionally likes to straightern it. This would be really nice. I loved your article on homeschooling without stress. We've been homeschooling for 11 years. I'm amazed how much more relaxed I am now than when I started.

Toystory said...

I do not have a flat iron, however as a "child" I used a REAL iron to press my hair straight.... and later used "beer cans" with both sides cut off for rollers that were huge but did straighten in the end. Right now I have left it curly, unruly and pulled back in a pony tail.. Not a great look, but just haven't bought, or tried one of these to know how good they can be.
