Hey everyone, I hope you are all doing well! I've been busy with work and appointments, hence the slight lack in posting so far this week.

About a month or so ago (time has been pretty blurry lately), I was contacted by someone from Misikko.com. They asked if I would review one of their blowdryers, the HANAair Professional. I normally am quite hestitant when a PR person emails me. This may sound strange, as I realize that the nature of beauty and fashion blogging involves direct contact with companies. I'm discerning because I want my blog to be authentically me. I will never post something here that I don't feel genuine about. But you know, I am pretty hopeless with my hair. And I have never, ever owned a nice professional hair dryer before, only drugstore brands that I can admit aren't the best quality. So when Misikko contacted me, I was thrilled! I've been using the dryer every time I wash my hair, which is every other day. I have been using it consistently for the past two weeks.

I love that it's a sleek black color. It is light-weight, easy to manuever, and easy to hold while I blow out my hair with both a round brush and a flat paddle brush.

It also comes with a detachable nozzle. I've never used one before, and I can't believe what a humongous difference it can make! The air is concentrated down the hair shaft, allowing for better control of styling. I point the dryer downwards as I straighten, section by section. My hair dries quickly, more smoothly, and with less frizz.


I love all of the settings that the HANAair has. I usually use the HOT/HIGH setting to blow my hair out, then switch on the COOL button to set it in place and help seal the cuticle.



Overall, I would give my experience with this blow dryer a solid A! I left my Revlon dryer behind at my old house, but I have no desire to go back. This is hands down the best hair dryer I've tried. You girls know I just received a GHD for Christmas from my fiance, but if you are interested in hair straighteners, I'm sure the ones on the Misikko website are great too. If you girls have any further questions, please feel free to ask!

    1. It is very popular in the community, which is why I was so hesitant to try it out. But, there is a reason why it gets so many stellar reviews! It really is a wonderful product

    1. You should look into it Natasha! It's so much better than the drugstore brands I've tried (Revlon and Con Air). I truly think it's worth it!

    1. I agree it is expensive, which made it hard for me to decide whether reviewing it or not was good for my readers. But I love it, and I can't see anyone not feeling the same way if they bought it themselves.

    1. Oh no! I would probably have a slight panic attack if my dryer crapped out on me ;)

  7. I have this hairdryer as well, though mine sadly broke :( I replaced it with an elchim and love it as well. I think the hana dryer is really worth it.

    1. Yes, I remember your review! Once I read how much you loved it, I think I was secretly hoping to buy one in the future. Good thing Misikko came to the rescue before then! That's too bad that it broke, do you know what happened? I hope that doesn't happen with mine...it seems so sturdy.
