HANAair Professional Hair Dryer from Misikko

PRICE: $194.99 is an online store that sells a wide variety of hair products including hair straighteners, hair dryers, curling irons, and styling products. They have a lot of good deals on popular brands that you’ve probably heard of, such as Babyliss, CHI, GHD, T3, and more. They also sell some cosmetics and skincare items as well. Their customer service is great and the owners are super friendly. They offer free shipping on orders over $50. And let me tell you, they sure do know how to package their orders with ribbons and flowers- so cute!

Today I’m going to be reviewing my hair dryer from Misikko which is the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer. For the past few years, I’ve been using an old hair dryer from the drugstore because I didn’t know that high end products could make such a difference. That is, until one day, I borrowed my sisters CHI hair straightener. I am now a total believer in good quality hair tools because they’re efficient and make a big difference in the quality of your hair.

The HANAair Professional Hair Dryer has a ceramic heater. You probably hear the word “ceramic” a lot when it comes to hair tools, but it basically allows for smoother hair, less frizz, and faster/more even heat up time. I’ve been using this dryer for a few weeks now, and the overall condition of my hair has improved. Instead of feeling poofy and frizzy after drying, it feels soft, smooth, and shiny. My sister recently asked me if I was doing anything different to my hair because it looked really nice.

It has 3 main controls by the handle. On the very left is the cool shot button which releases cold air to help set your hair style. On a lot of hair dryers, the cool shot button has to be held down which can get pretty annoying. What’s cool about this dryer is that the button actually stays in place. Push it once for cold air, push it again to release. The switch in the middle controls the speed which has 2 settings. Both speed options are pretty powerful and they dry my hair really fast. It used to take me at least 30 minutes to dry my hair but this has cut the time IN HALF. Speed setting II can get pretty loud, so I tend to avoid using that one if I need to be quiet. The switch on the right controls the heat which has 3 settings. It heats up really well and that contributes to the quick drying and styling.

The dryer as a whole feels really lightweight. I don’t ever remember my hands getting tired as I’m using it. It also has a 12 foot cord which is pretty long and convenient if you can’t always be right next to an outlet.

Included is a big drawstring bag for storage and travel. It also comes with a concentrator attachment for styling and a small size of the HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant. This serum is really nice because it helps make your hair smoother and shinier without weighing it down or making it feel sticky.

I think the only con would be that it is pretty expensive. It costs $194.99. However, a lot of high end hair dryers are around that price so if you’re willing to invest, I would definitely recommend the HANA. It even comes with a 2 year warranty.

Here's a photo of my hair right after drying it with the HANAair dryer and applying some of the shine shield. I didn't even have to straighten it with a flat iron which I usually do.

Best Friend's Prom Makeup & Nails

Meet Christine, one of my best friends! We pretty much grew up together. She's a pretty girl but she always refused to let me put makeup on her haha. That's why I was super excited when she told me that I could help her get ready for prom! I did her makeup and nails while our other friend did her hair.

I used china glaze innocence, china glaze love letters, & sinful colors snow me white
