Blow Me Over Why Don't You

Over the holiday's I was reached out to by a representative from Missiko to see if I'd be interested in trying out they Hana Air blow dryer and give my opinion.  Obviously I jumped at the opportunity.  I love trying out new things!

To make this quick and easy to make your decision if you want to buy this hair dryer, I figured it would be best to break it out to a list of pros & cons.  I'm a huge list maker so I figured myself and everyone reading would benefit from this approach.


  • This blow dryer has an insane amount of power! Drying my hair in half the time it typically takes (15 minutes down to 7 minutes)
  • Extremely long cord, 12 feet, I mean I could walk around my house with this thing.  Well not really but you get the point
  • There are 3 heat settings in addition to a "cool" button
  • There is a low and high blowing setting.  I used high on most of my head, and then recommend using it on low if you use a round brush like me and don't want your hair flying all over the place
  • It has a 2 year warranty - yes please. Most of the hair dryers I have used to date have been purchased at Target (Conair) and typically last me about 2 years and then run down eventually
  • The high fan speed knots my hair more than normal.  I have A LOT of very fine blonde hair so had to go down to the low fan setting to avoid getting overly tangled
  • Cost.  If I was rich {which we all know I'm not} I'd happily purchase this blow dryer.  It is on SALE right now for $194.99, a 42% discount which is pretty awesome
  • When using the highest heat, I'd use it farther from your head.  I got a bit too close and fried some of my hair - absolutely my fault as I've done this before.  Just though a friendly reminder to use caution on such high heater blow dryers
Overall, I would say this is a pretty amazing hair dryer. Anything that eliminates the amount of time I have to put into getting ready gets my vote. So if you are like me and measure everything you buy on a CPW/CPU (Cost-Per-Wear/Use), you will get yours money's worth.

  1. Looks like a great tool! The cost is definitely a little off putting, but your list of pros seems to outweigh the cons.

    I take my hair very seriously, but I've never spent a great amount of money on a blow dryer. Which now that I think about it is a little silly, especially since it's the main hair tool that I use!

    Great post -- super helpful :)
