Hello, my name is Ashlee...and I am a flat iron-aholic! Now that you know my nasty little secret I'll tell you something you didn't know about my husband, Justin -- he is a flat iron junkie as well. I have wavy hair, and it's not those sexy beachy waves either. So needless to say I am eternally grateful to the good people at Misikko who sent me the Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron 1" to try out. I was so excited about getting my very first professional flat iron that there aren't even words to describe my level of excitement! As soon as I opened the sleek shiny black box I saw a draw string bag filled with scented faux roses! I removed my much anticipated flat iron and immediately tried it on my own hair then handed it over for my husbands use. When our hair turned out straighter than ever and feeling silkier than when we began I knew it was love.
I must say that I am impressed with how it leaves my hair looking beautiful and Cher straight as well as how it leaves my hair feeling so smooth and silky.
I've made a list of the things that I love about my new favorite styling tool that I've ever owned!
- I love that my Corioliss Flat Iron is energy efficient at 35 watts! It heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit too.
- It only takes around 10 seconds or so for this flat iron to be hot and ready to use. So even the most impatient of people won't have to wait!
- The ceramic plates, the negative ions and far infrared technology is why the results of using this flat iron are shiny, smooth frizz free hair!
- You can straighten, curl or flip you ends up or under with this flat iron because of the shape of it, it has curved edges which allows you to style your hair many different ways!
- It comes with a heat proof mat to sit your flat iron on while styling and a heat proof pouch to store it in after you're done, which is a plus if you have kids because they won't get burnt if they try to grab it after you're done.
- The on/off switch and the temperature controls were in what I considered an awkward place at first before I got used to them. They aren't on the top and visible when you sat it down, but were inside down below the ceramic plates. This gives it a chic and sleek look! It also makes it harder for the kids to turn on should they get it out and plug it in without their Mom having knowledge of it, so that's another plus for a Mommy, because we always worry about things like that!
I decided to flat iron my baby sister Ali's hair to show you all how well it works. Her hair is curly, very thick, she has a lot of hair and it gets tangled easily. She also has issues with it getting frizzy. So I took the flat iron to her hair and took pictures so you all could see the results, so that is who is in the pictures you have been seeing in this review. Ali couldn't believe how good her hair looked and how much softer it felt when I was done. She was even more impressed when I told her that Misikko gives you 55% off the retail price of $200.00 and you end up paying only $89.99 for this product! I would gladly fork over the cash to pay for this flat iron but Misikko was nice enough to let me try it for free, and they are letting me give one away to one of my fabulous blog readers as well!
