Haute Hair at Home: HANAair Professional Hair Dryer Review

My experience with hair dryers has never been anything to write home about. Past experiences have left me with numb arms (due to heavyweight tools), and sheer frustration over lengthy wait times for said hair dryers to make good on their promise…dry my hair. Thus, unless someone else is working their magic on my follicles, I consider myself to be an air-dry type of girl. Meaning? I let my wet hair dry naturally – super fabulous in the way of saving time, but definitely not recommended if you want a chic et sleek coiffure. So when Misikko – known for their CHI Hair Products, Professional Hair Straighter selection, and the Best Hair Dryers – gave me the opportunity to review the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer – dubbed “The Premiere Hair Dryer” – I saw it as an offer I couldn’t refuse.

Aesthetically, the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer is stunning to look at. It is compact, sophisticated, and sleek, with a rich, black finish, and nondescript gray labeling that is subtle – yet still gets the job done of informing the user precisely what tool is in their possession. Best of all, of course, is the fact that it is lightweight. Featuring Wattage of 2300, 2 fan speeds, 3 heat settings, and a cold shot, I immediately knew that this particular hair dryer was far more powerful than previous ones that I have used; which actually scared me a little, as I was worried that it would cause frizz and/or heat damage – it didn’t.

The ION Technology found in the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer actually conditions hair and reduces static electricity which, in my opinion, made my hair (which has a slight wave / frizz to it when not treated with a hair dryer) feel incredibly healthy, in that once completed the look was super shiny and smooth – no flyaway or frizz at all. This particular hair dryer does retail for $334.99; however, it is $194.99 via Misikko. Normally, I would not be willing to spend so much on a hair care tool (as most of you well know, the majority of my money goes to shoes); however, time is money, and it took me less than ten minutes to completely blow dry my hair using the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer (a task which, with other hair dryers, has taken upwards of 45-minutes) – thus, I see it as a great investment item.

Now that I’ve told you about the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer itself, I have to tell you about what Misikko included with it – as these items literally made me squeal for joy, and made it possible for me to experience Christmas in January. Seriously. Misikko should win an award for their packaging alone. I was treated to a purple, white, and black color scheme (with a cuddly pop of pink), which included a Sleep Mask (very Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s); Rosebud-Shaped Potpourri; full-size bottles of Paul Mitchell Shampoo One and The Detangler (P.S. There’s definitely a new man in my hair’s life now); an e.l.f. Mechanical Eyelash Curler; multiple Emery Boards (beyond perfect as I am a nail care nut); two bottles of Mellow Hand Sanitizer; HANA Shine Shield; a HANA Hand Towel; Corioliss’ The Straightening Comb; and, my personal favorite (I totally saved the best for last), a Hot Pink Stuffed Teddy Bear (which I am beyond in love with, as I still have a stuffed animal collection).

POSITIVES:
♥ Lightweight so your arm does not get tired during use. ♥
♥ 2300 Watts so hair dries faster than it would with other dryers on the market. ♥
♥ 2 Fan Speeds; 3 Heat Settings; and a Cold Shot. ♥
♥ ION Technology conditions hair, making it shiny and smooth. ♥
♥ Professional-Grade so you get salon-worthy hair at home. ♥
♥ Sleek, sophisticated aesthetic. ♥

FASHIONISTA VERDICT:
The HANAair Professional Hair Dryer is the Chanel 2.55 of the hair world!

I really don't use a hair dryer for my hair, but this makes me consider giving one a try. Plus, who isn't a sucker for a hot pink teddy bear? I'm all in love with it and it's not even mine. Happy Tuesday, E.

So glad to hear this about this brand. Lord knows how long I've had mine. I definitely need a new one.

Tights Lover said...

Sounds like a great hair dryer. I know most of them aren't anything special, so when you find a good one, its usually worth the money!

Sherin said...

Sounds like a perfect hairdryer! And I love that it's lightweight. My arms always get tired when I'm drying my hair.
I also love all the gorgeous little presents you got with it.

Joanne said...

Looks like a great product. The lightweight part is an added bonus when drying hair!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

If my hair didn't dry so easily because it's a) short and b) naturally straight (or dead from chlorine), I'd check this out! Sounds fabulous.

anhesty said...

great review. nice package.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

GREAT review! I actually own this hair dryer and I kid you not, it dries my ridiculously long hair in like ten minutes. That's magic.

Sara said...

I have that same hair dryer and it is amazing!

Grace said...

Wow, that sounds awesome! I never think to blow dry my hair, though, haha.

Meenakshi said...

That is the most adorable package I have seen! I love the eye mask. I use a regular old Panasonic turbodry, it manages to keep the ends from curling up and not too many split ends. My hair is naturally very straight, so I'm one of those freaks who doesn't really need to use a dryer that often.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh wow I will have to check this dryer out. It sounds great!!

Brookelyn said...

I've heard nothing but wonderful things about these dryers- I really want to try one out!

All Glam Things said...

Gosh! This looks like a Fabulous Product! I would love to get one of those!!

I'm loving your blog! I 'd love if you visited my blog for multiple posts on all things fashion and style. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
