I've been looking for a mini flat iron for sometime now. Not because I have the constant need for it, but to have it just in case I'm taking a trip somewhere and don't feel like packing my regular flat iron or if I need to do a quick touchup on my hair for drinks with the girls after work. Thanks to the lovely Lisa over at It's A Glam Thing, I got to try out the Hana Mini.
I must say, I like this little guy- talk about compact. This is just what I was looking for- small enough to throw into my big suitcase of a purse, and it comes in this cute little metallic case.
The iron itself is only five inches long when collasped, but it extends to eight inches for styling.
Now as far as the straightening goes, it's pretty decent. Nothing compares to my Chi, but this one comes close. I used it with the Hana ShineShield serum, it left my hair very silky and not weighed down. The plates are made of tourmaline and and has a fixed temperature of 410 degrees.
I'm impressed with is iron. Like I said, it's very compact and you can just throw it in your purse, gym bag, suitcase, etc. and go. It really comes in handy when my hiar needs that quick touchup. You can purchase your own Hana Mini here or you can enter to win a Hana Pro over at It's A Glam Thing.
