Straightened Hair - Hot Pink Cheetah Style

Hey my lovelies...

It has been a while hasn't it?!?

I hope you are all doing well.....

Soo today I went to guess where...B&M... Yeah I know again :-)

I just really like that store since they hold a variety of products.

So I went in the store aiming to find just simple things like shampoo and conditioner for my hair and a duvet cover since this weekend I was in the middle of moving. For a while now I have been looking for a small hair straightener to straighten my roots from time to time and so far I only knew of the ones from BaByliss.
When I went to B&M the first thing I saw was a bunch of mini flat irons.. I have to say that they were all looking really cute... especially the pink one. This flat iron ranges from a variety of colours such as blue, green hot pink, cheetah prints in pink and purple and much more. The brand of this flat iron is known as Stylestudio.

Now let us look at the good and the not so good things about this flat iron


-The packaging looked really inviting 

-I really like that they have the iron in various colours with and without prints on them

-The product is very cheap £6.99

- The flat iron goes up to 200 degrees
-Ceramic Centred Metal Plate 
- Long Cable
-Very soft on the hair
-Easy on/off button 

Not so Good:

* The yellow bit I marked indicates the area that is usually very hot which also is the case for this flat iron.
* Note that my hands are very small...
The hand area (the area marked in orange) I have to say is still quite hot which I don't think is supposed to be like that because there is almost no space to actually hold the flat iron.
* Because of that you would have to place your hand in-between the orange and green area for you not to burn your hand.
* Also, do not get to close to the area marked as green...When you glide your hair through the flat iron the green area goes up and down and you might get your hand suck in there..So be careful with that.
* You cannot adjust the heat setting with this flat iron either as there only is a on and off button but what do you expect with that price?!?

Overall I like this product..it comes at an affordable price, looks quite cute and is very compact. My hair came out so soft and shiny with this flat iron and I did not burn my scalp when I got right down to straighten my roots. However, the "Hand Space" is not very generous to be honest. It gets 7 out of 10 from me. 

Do you own a mini flat iron? How is it working for you?

Stay blessed
