Contest closed- Winner announced!

A HUGE congratulations to our winner Heather! This was such an exciting contest to host for those of you who didn’t win stay tuned for more contests coming soon.

I want to introduce Misikko a great online store that has all the styling tools a beauty junkie could want.  A  family run business that not only has the best tools at the best prices but great customer service that will keep you coming back. All the top brands of Hair straighteners are available at Misikko including Chi flat irons, Babyliss flat irons, you can even search for the most popular with the best flat iron page at the Misikko store.

Misikko is sponsoring a great contest especially for MakeHerUp readers we even have some special bonus entry possibilities. And now for the amazing prize: Misikko will be giving one luck MakeHerUp reader one of their most popular flat irons, the Hana Elite 100% ceramic flat iron.

Hana Elite Flat Iron 1″ – 100% Ceramic

Of the hundreds of flat irons available in the market you can categorize them down to Titanium (or other metals), Metal Alloy Coated in Ceramic, 100% Ceramic. 100% Ceramic is the only material that will generate results better than Titanium while also providing the highest level of hair damage protection.

The Hana Elite Flat Iron is 100% true, solid ceramic. This means it will never peel or chip to expose hair to damaging metal – it also means Hana can include large ceramic heaters that cover the entire plates for the best possible heat distribution and retention. As the pros know, the secret to ceramic hair straightening is in the ceramic technology itself – and Hana focuses on bringing you the best flat iron money can buy. (Compare to the other pure ceramic flat irons on the market today.)

The Hana Elite is now available in a new 1.5″ model for thicker/longer hair types – the FIRST and ONLY pure ceramic plate flat iron in the world to be available in a wide plate size!
Hana Elite Features:

* 100% Solid Ceramic Plates Never Peel or Degrade
* Tourmaline infused into the heating elements for maximum thermal protection
* Large Integrated Ceramic Heaters with Full Plate Coverage for the Most Consistent, Conditioning Far Infrared Heat Possible
* Ceramic is naturally hygienic, protects color & retards fading
* Unique black ceramic plates won’t discolor with use of products or hair dyes
* Adjustable Temperature Dial – 5 Settings from 140-450° F for All Hair Types
* Flash Heats in Seconds with Instant Compensation for Heat Loss
* Safe to use on Damp to Dry Hair
* Beveled Edges mean Easy Curled, Flipped, Spiked or Straight Styles
* Ergonomic Handle Design with No-Slip Grip
* Smooth Grooves Keep Hair Strands Separate and Snag-Free
* Sleek luxury matte finish
* Tangle-Free Salon Quality Cord Swivels 360°; Convenient Hanging Loop
* Energy Efficient at 38 Watts
* Independent On/Off Switch
* Includes Luxe Heat Proof Storage Pouch, Heat Proof Silicone Mat, & Special Edition Tin Case
* Made in Korea
* Two Year Warranty


* The benefits of pure ceramic require a little extra care from the stylist – without a metal baseplate, solid ceramic plates break more easily if used roughly or dropped. Please use your pure ceramic iron with care for best results and longest life!

Please Note:

* LED indicator light remains steady when iron is heating up and will blink when desired temperature is reached. If the light is off but the switch is set to On, the iron is decreasing temperature to a lower setting.
