I Am Not A Beauty Blogger

There is a reason I’m not a beauty blogger. And it’s called laziness. 

I got pretty damn lucky in the hair department. Low maintenance doesn’t even begin to describe it. Air dry? Still straight. Humidity? Slight wave. Slight. It holds curl. And it mostly does what I ask it to do. Which on most days is just: lay there and be flat.

Just out of the shower and when I get up in the morning
Sure, the bangs added some level of styling necessity. I’m a night time showerer so in the morning I usually straighten out my sleeping kinks, throw on some BB Cream and mascara and I’m out the door.

So when Missiko wanted to send me a Hana Professional Flat Iron I was like uhhh do you know who you are emailing? 

The package arrived and there was definitely more than a little bit of ooohing and ahhhing on my part. It came with a bunch of other goodies including some E.L.F. makeup, a sweet hairbrush, some drawer smelly things (technical term), and a super creepy fairy ornament. Score! Plus, most of their straighteners come with a free heat proof pouch and heat proof mat.

Here’s what my hair looks like straightened:

What can I say? It made my straight hair straight. And it did look much healthier because it tamed all my fly aways. The paddles are smooth and the thing really glides through your hair. Which is good, because I usually straighten for about 4 minutes and it’s just me clamping down randomly and yanking it through.

So to put it to the real test, I straightened my sisters hair with it. Her hair is crazy curly and vibrant red. Straightening her hair normally takes upwards of an hour. With the Hana Flat Iron? It took 45 minutes and it was the straightest I have ever seen it. 

Is it the best flat iron? It’s certainly the best one I’ve used. However with my hair texture I never would have spent $100+ on a straightener.  It is definitely worth a purchase if you have curly hair that is hard to straighten.

And in case you missed it, yes, I still carry around my 50lb. dog like a small child.

Please note: I was sent the Hana Professional Flat Iron in exchange for my review. All statements and opinons are my own.

  • This is amazing! I have super curly hair that is almost possible to keep straight. I should for sure look into this…

  • Love your reaction. I would have said the same if they’d contacted me!

  • Ooohhhh I wish I had your hair! 🙂 So pretty.

  • The dog photo is amazing. I’m glad I’m not the only one who does this! And your hair looks so good (the before pics aren’t too shabby either)! But let’s be honest here, it’s the creepy fairy ornament that is totally selling me on this straightener!

  • Haha, those photos are funny and your hair looks gorgeous!

    Sparkles and Shoes

  • This is totally random, but as I’m sitting here reading this I’m wearing that same shirt… only with black stripes. And your dog is too adorable (and your hair matches!). Okay, carry on.

  • i want that puppy! i suppose the straightener would be nice too 🙂

  • THE cutest picture of you and your pup EVER. Can’t wait till we get our puppy this summer. I might cry and force my hubby to follow me and the dog around with the camera.

  • I’ve been wanting one of those straighteners! Not sure if I would pay for it. My hair is super curly and I ALWAYS have to run the straightener through it. Your hair looks fab!

  • Your hair looks amazing either way! I’m envious, my hair takes a while to curl or straighten due to the thickness. Your pup is sooo cute!!

  • dont you just love that hair dryer? I am obsessed with mine! Your hair is beautiful love!!


  • Oh my god, that picture of you holding Archie is the CUTEST! I love how his paws are on your shoulders hugging you. 🙂

  • OMG that is such a cute picture of you with your dog. I still try carrying mine all the time but she is heavy and I am not stong enough to hold her for too long haha

  • I want some company to send me free stuff!! And you’re so lucky to have low maintenance hair! And I’m in love with Archie! That picture is fabulous! Totally framable 🙂

  • This is awesome! I’m also one of those people with naturally straight hair that straightens their hair anyway. My boyfriend doesn’t get this, but I really do think it makes a difference.

  • your doggy got so big!! love the pic with him 🙂

  • Oh I would have FLIPPED when I opened that box! I am in the market for a new straightener that can tame my crazy thick hair in this southern humidity!

  • OMG That last photo is awesome!!!

  • I only straighten my hair when I need to trim it. It takes me about 90 minutes, but really, I just don’t have time or patience for that. Plus, I Looooove my curls. I can’t get enough of Archie. He’s just too damn cute.

  • We’re the same! Except I’m a brunette. My husband claims my hair looks amazing in the morning. Heat touches my hair maybe 2x a month, maximum. When it does? Big bouncy curls? No problem. Straight? Looks amazing. And I’m the same, IF I wear make up? BB cream + mascara and occasionally some cream blush. Takes literally 2 minutes. But most of the time, undone hair + makeup-less face.

    Or maybe I’ve just convinced myself that I look fine without make up or doing my hair because I’m the laziest person ever.

  • Last picture, best pic ever.
