I’m definitely one of those girls that’s kind of obsessed with my hair. When I graduated high school I had this grand idea that I needed to go to college with a new look. So I made my hair dresser cut off my long hair in to a short above the shoulder cut. And guess what….I HATED it. I totally forced myself to smile and say nice things to my stylist but when I got home I bawled (FOR DAYS)! Needless to say, every now and then I get an itch to cut my hair but then when I tell my hair dresser, Yvonne, she knows me too well to actually do it. Plus, I know Daddy Russ like me long and blonde!

Did anyone else’s hair have like a completely different personality when you were pregnant? Mine was like out of a commercial…all long, thick and shiny. But then post-pregnancy…poof went the hair. Since having Luke my hair has gotten thinner, NEVER has that natural shine and pretty much won’t grow past the length that you see. So I’ve been trying to take care of it as best as possible putting all kinds of conditioners, serums, sprays, etc in it. When I received the opportunity to review the HANAair Dryer from Misikko I practically started drooling! A PROFESSIONAL hair dryer….I wonder what amazingness that could do to my hair!!??


Well, I can tell you this…my old dryer bought from a local drug store was placed in the guest bedroom bathroom and will NEVER be used by me again! This is seriously the best hair dryer I’ve ever used and has me completely spoiled. For one, it knocked off 10 minutes of my drying time! But my hair is so much less frizzy and dried out looking…I can just blow dry and go! I’m also obsessed with the extra long cord – I’ll start drying my hair while I begin going through my closet to decide what I’m going to wear that day!


The hair dryer also has multiple settings including warm and hot and high and low. It also has a cool button that’s great for setting your styling when finished.


I should also mention their packaging really stood out to me. It came with all kinds of extra goodies – a teddy bear, rose, brush, eyelash curler, etc. And I found out that Misikko packages ALL their products like this (not just because I’m a blogger). The dryer retails for $334.99 but Misikko has it on sale right now for $194.99.



And now I want to give one of my sTORIbook readers one of these too so they can have fabulous hair as well!!

    I recently had a hair cut and tried a new style. My styler taught me how to blow dry hair and style it. I have been trying it since then and loving me hair like never before. Now that the hair dryer has become a part of my life, I would love to win the BEST hair dryer and make my hair happy. My old one is junkie and I know the value of a good hair dryer. Thanks!!

  21. Kristen P.

    I loooooathe blow drying my hair all the way because it seems to take forever! So something like this would be awesome and make me actually want to take the time to dry my hair all the way πŸ™‚

  22. Ashley

    I’m in the same boat as you–post pregnancy has changed my hair! I’ve been trying to take better care of it with vitamins and less wear and tear. I think this would be a great help!

  23. Kelsey

    My old hair dryer is so over worked… And even if my kids only let me wash my hair every other day, I look forward to actually doing my hair!! It would be such a treat to have such a nice tool to make my routine better!

  24. anie inspired

    I just chopped my hair and I hate it too! πŸ™
    But I find that a great blowdryer makes all the difference with short hair! To volumize my super flat hair!

    Good luck to all who enter!!! ^_^

  29. Melissa Mazzur

    I would love a hair dryer! I do not have one. My daughter took it to college

  30. Jennifer Hiles

    I would like to win for a couple reasons. First, my hair dryer is kinda pathetic and old and falling apart. I also find that if I don’t use one, my hair drys absolutely wicked. And last, I would love to own a great quality Missiko hair dryer!

  31. Trenda T

    It would be amazing to own something that doesn’t come from Rite Aid lol

  32. Melva Moody

  34. Rachel M

    I would love to win this because I have thick hair and need to cut down on the time it takes to dry my hair!

  35. Annette

    I’d love to win this for days when I blow out my curly hair. The shorter drying time with less frizz would definitely be beneficial to me.

  36. Jean

    I have two little girls who HATE having their hair dried. My oldest, who has very thick hair, is especially resistant but her hair looks SO much better when she lets me dry it. A professional dryer would get the job done faster and better!

  37. christina moore

    I really need this hair blower, my old dryer cuts off when it gets hot.

  38. Jennifer Hatton

    I would really enjoy a new hair dryer! It would replace my current one that the dog chewed the cord on and help me straighten out my frizzy hair in this Texas humidity πŸ™‚

    I am stuck sharing with my husband and let me tell you, it isn’t pretty. πŸ˜‰

  44. Casandra

    My current hair dryer reeks of burnt hair! I’ve never had a good hair dryer before, I don’t even know what to expect! This sounds incredible:)

  45. Sandi Tymchuk

    My hairdryer is at the end of its lifespan, and could fail any day now.

  46. Gabrielle Marshall

    With naturally curly hair, hair dryers are normally the enemy! I would love to win because it would be great to try a high quality product that might help tame the frizz monster and give me more options than just mousse and air drying!

  47. elai berame

    i’m gonna tell you a secret: i don’t comb my hair. like at all! you see i have naturally curly hair and the best way to let the curls stay in place is to not comb my hair haha. hair drying is like, my alternative to having great hair, and this hair dryer of yours seems really great <3

  48. Adrianne B

    I would love to win this hair dryer because my current dryer is on its last leg and I have been blowing my hair out more ofter vs. letting it air dry during the colder months. I would love to see how this dryer would make my hair look!

  49. Alexia

    There is a few reasons I would like to win this Amazing hair dryer. First off, Misikko is well known for it’s superior hair appliances and I would be so happy to have such a great item. Second, my blow dryer is shot and doesn’t work well- it’s cool shot button is broken and I have been looking for a new one, however, I cannot afford a Misikko dryer right now because chrsitmas is coming up and there are a ton of presents to buy. Third, I love my hair and try my HARDEST to keep it healthy but between coloring, blow drying and flat ironing, it’s not always easy- having a blow dryer that doesn’t inflict more damage would be SO great! Thanks!

  50. Wendy T

    I’d love to win a Misikko HanaAIR dryer because I imagine it’d be the last one I’d ever need – and mine is on the verge of overheating.

  51. Cathy

    There are 4 girls in our household. Every time I go to use the hairdryer in the upstairs bathroom, someone has taken it to the downstairs bathroom,

  52. Bonny

  56. Rebecca Peters

    Im in a pretty dire need for a hairdryer, for the past 3 years I just got in the car and windblowed it lol Now that my hair is longer, its no good for it! Especially the knots and tangles that come with it! >.<

  57. kortney nelson

    I would love to win because I cannot afford a decent hair dryer. All the ones I have had are like $5-$10 and they do me no good. It takes me 2349273490 minutes to blow dry my thick hair with those. I think this would work better
