"Hana's new mini flat iron is so high quality, you'll want to steal it from your daughter, or better yet, get one for yourself. They come in blue and pink and include a cute travel bag she'll love, but what makes the Hana Mini Flat Iron so cool is that it's only 5 inches long when collapsed, but it extends to 8 inches (the length of an average flat iron). The extension allows for easier use. What's makes this flat iron high quality is the tourmaline ceramic plates, which is necessary for salon results."

"Most professional irons on the market are constructed of aluminum or metal base plates, coated with ceramic. The ceramic coating can peel or chip over time, leaving hair exposed to damaging positive ions from the heated metal underneath. The Hana Elite offers solid ceramic plates with no metal content. With pure ceramic plates, you receive only far-infrared heat....the ceramic heating elements are baked right between the layers, so they always have full contact and coverage over the entire plate. These heaters are also about three times the size of the heating elements used in the majority of salon irons. Even with these luxury features, the Hana Elite is priced affordably."

Take matters into your own hands with the incredibly easy to use, one inch Hana Elite flat iron. Just take the professional styling tool out of its heat-proof storing pouch and start curling, flipping or straightening your dry or even damp hair. (We test-drove it on straight, wavy, thick and think hair and got impressive results every time.) The solid ceramic plates not only ensure consistent heat, but also maximize negative ions so your hair gets conditioned while you style it. The plates' floating design and smooth grooves make for fewer snags and give more styling coverage. There's a five dial temperature setting, which makes it ideal for all hair types, from the baby fine to seriously coarse. It's energy efficient, too, and has an ergonomic design that makes it much less cumberson than most irons.

"Let’s cut to the chase here, this product works and honey, it works really well! The best Antonio Gonzales, master stylistpart of the Hana Iron was the shine it left on the hair. Honestly, I have never seen shine like this come from a flat iron unless, of course, product is added at the end. I could make hair curl, flip and fly with this mama."

One of the most beloved rituals performed by women worldwide is the trip to the stylist. Sitting in their chair we laugh, cry and gossip and gab with the girls. But the main reason we continue our visits month after month and year after year is your stylist can do what no other can…completely transform your look and create luminous locks in the twist of a wrist, and in just minutes! Now if we could only channel their skills and bring their power into our own bathrooms daily. Hana has launched two luxury irons that give you smooth, silky, straight hair from the comfort of your own home.

The Hana Elite is truly elite among professional irons. 99% of ceramic flat iron manufacturers use metal baseplates, which produce damaging positive ions when heated. The Elite has solid 100% ceramic plates with no metal content, meaning you only get negative ions - the type that condition and protect your hair, repel frizz and humidity, and seal in natural moisture for a smooth, shiny finish. Heat is distributed more evenly and is retained better, so styling is faster and styles hold longer.

The few high end irons that do use pure ceramic feature light colored ceramic, which discolors or obtains a dingy look after only a couple uses. The Hana Elite irons are uniquely formulated in black 100% ceramic plates for a fresh and sleek appealing look to the iron that will last. Hana also constructs their irons exclusively in Korea, for premiere quality.

Hana’s Professional Iron contains Hana’s signature superior quality for a more moderate price, adding tourmaline to its plates for a boost in negative ions.

Without compromising quality or salon features, Hana is the new affordable luxury in hair care. With Hana’s advanced ceramic technology it takes seconds to grab even the curliest mane and give it a smooth texture and added shine, all while preserving the health and condition of the hair!
