Hair IS Important **Review and a GIVEAWAY**

What is one of your favorite accessories?  Mine would have to be my hair. There is so much versatility in hair.  We can express so much of ourselves through the hairstyles we choose.  And even when you cut it all off, it'll always grow back. :)

I was excited when Misikko asked if I wanted to review one of their professional flat irons; the Hana Professional 1" flat iron.  Although I'm an avid Chi flat iron user, I was very satisfied with the results the Hana Professional flat iron provided.  It only took me a few mintues to achieve straight shiny locks, and my hair is pretty thick.  I give it an A+.

**I took these photos in the bathroom, without a flash... so you can't really see how "shiny" my hair really is!**

Misikko offers a plethora of the best flat irons on the market, like the Chi flat iron, the Babyliss flat iron, and the Hana Professional 1" flat iron to name a few.

...and now for the best part, Misikko is offering one of my beautiful readers a chance to win their very own Hana Professional 1" Flat Iron.
