REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Corioliss hair straightener from misikko

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!

guess what? i have ANOTHER awesome giveaway for you!! ever heard of misikko? they have professional hair straighteners and the best hair dryers. they carry a variety of brands, including these lovely ones that you may recognize: chi, paul mitchell, hot tools, and of course: corioliss.

misikko generously sent me one of their top sellers: a Corioliss Classic 1” Black Flat Iron to review, and offered to give one away! yippee! when i came back from camping, the hair straightener was waiting for me at home. i was sooooo excited. when i opened it up, it was the loveliest packaging i have ever seen for any kind of hair product. it also included a couple free gifts, as well as a heating pad you can place the straightener on when it's hot (before this i was using a sushi plate to keep mine on...classy i know...). it also included a little booklet explaining the corioliss line, product information, and even a how to guide w/pictures.

so, i wanted to take some before pictures so you can see what my hair does naturally. it gets kiiiind of crazy. if i hadnt put my product in it before it dried [naturally], it would have been worse. so this is what i was dealing with:

awesome, huh? i told you so. ok, so i sprayed my hair with heat protectant first (a must do!) and then went at it. at first i didnt have the heat up high enough for my craz-o hair so i was worried and thought "oh no! i dont like it!" but then i realized my problem and turned the heat up a bit. then it was perfect. the plates are longer than my last straightener so it can handle more hair at a time and get it all straight. it heats up in record time, which was awesome. when i was finished i got this lovely end product:

cute, right? by the way, the adorable shirt i am wearing came from the etsy shop come shop pink lemonade. you should definitely go check her out and snag one for yourself!! now back to the review: i would highly recommend this hair straightener. it also comes with a 2-year guarantee, just in case something goes wrong. 2 years? hollaaa! it works great and as you can see it straightens like a dream.

how do you get one?* well, you can buy one here at misikko (valued at $200, currently on sale for $89!), or you can enter this giveaway! here are the rules:

Girl...I want this hair do dad. You're hair looks so pretty.

Everyday, I blow dry my bangs and let the rest air dry. I live for the days that I get to go to see my hair stylist because that is the only time my hair looks pretty.

p.s. I am a follower and I adore your blog.

Liv said...

umm... that top looks adorable on you! :) you should model all of them for me! :)

i usually just put some mousse in my hair in the morning and put it in a bun with a headband... i would LOVE a flat iron! :)

Natalie said...

I had to laugh when I read the mandatory entry: I don't style my hair! (which is why I could really use this flat iron). I wash it every other day and blow dry if I don't want to catch a chill :)

My current routine is to wash it, apply gel and let it air dry for close to an hour. To dry my hair I use a diffuser to give it a bit of wave and body. Pretty simple

I usually put my hair in a twist when I'm being really lazy!

Atypical Girl said...

I usually take a shower, spray in conditioner, let it dry a bit, put in mousse, and then I'm good to go. On particularly hectic days, I spray in anti-frizz curl stuff.

Wow, that is some shiny hair-love it!
Since I've been unemployed I've gotten lazy about doing my hair and so my poor fiance doesn't come home to the cute girl he asked to marry 5 short months ago ;) haha But today, today I had a job interview and I must have rocked it because I got a call back tomorrow (are you now thinking why do I care just answer the damn question?)and so today I straightened my hair and tomorrow I will do the same; I'd just love to have a quality straightener that actually gets all of my hair pin straight!

My daily routine basically consists of showering, either air or blow-drying, and straightening--it's definitely time for a new straightener! Thanks!

I usually just flop over the front and hairspray it a bit, but some days I clip my bangs back.

Thanks for the chance to win!

My hair is long and wavy and frizzes at the first sign of humidity. I don't have time nor patience with it in the morning, so I grab a clip and twist it up.

I have naturally curly hair and would love a new straightener. I usually put some mousse in my hair and diffuse it. I just cut off all my hair and need a new way to style it. I would love to try straight!

This is awesome! I normally style mu hair straight.

edmontonjb said...

My hair is almost down to my waist and naturally, um, we'll say wavy but it's very hard to see the waves through the frizz. If I let it dry naturally it is horrifying and I frighten young children so everyday I have to blow dry and then flat iron along with a combination of hair products to try to get it to behave.
