I currently have a Magic ceramic flat iron that works really well, but is chipped on the side and is pretty beat up so I was pretty excited to try a new one.
First off, the packaging is AMAZE. It comes with all sorts of goodies from a sleeping eye mask to anti-bacterial (lol wat?) to elf makeup products (awesome):
This is my hair at a natural state: Day 2 hair, no curling or straightening, kind of stringy:
For me, it was about sectioning my hair first, doing it layer at a time. I tried doing strands randomly and I got frustrated after the 4th or 5th strand. This is the first layer:
After awhile, I got used to it, allowing it to set, before running my fingers through it and fixing it up. I think I like this look for something that isn't SO curled. This is definitely "romantic" hair - adding a braid would really spruce it up too...hmm, not a bad idea for next tutorial!
You can really see how different these hair styles are, even from the same product - and though the beachy curls took a little longer than the curled ends, I think once I get used to it, it might be just as easy as using a traditional curling iron.
And to round out the review, I decided to curl my bangs both ways (oh you didn't know I went both ways? Lol, jk) to test it out. Though my bangs are naturally straight, everyday I curl my bangs inwards, even today I had used a blow dryer and a round brush to curl them in.
Using the flat iron, I curled my bangs in quickly:
I decided to flip my bangs outward to see if it would look as cute (IT DOES NOT), but hey, I ain't ashamed of some failures - how else do you learn?
It looks a little more "breezy" (lol, what a weird description) but I think it's just because I'm not used to how it sits on my face.
Overall, I really liked the Hana Flat Iron, I give it an 8 out of 10. It's a little pricey, but since it's 100% ceramic (and not just ceramic-coated), I think it's worth the investment if you're going to use it on a somewhat regular basis.
