I have tried many hair straightener over the years and this is one of the best that I have tried so far. Also, this is the first hair straightener that I own that has chrome plates. It is truly stunning but also I think it does help this perform better than others. It really is a quality hair straightener just by the look, feel, and performance of it. The only downside is that there is no way to keep the straightener plates locked together so that it is easier to stow away. You'd have to wrap a tie around this or do it the lazy way and wrap the cord around it which I don't do. There is no reason why this straightener could not have had that feature built in. For the price, I would expect it as a design standard. It comes with a heat resistant bag in a white leopard print which is nice, but still, would have liked a locking feature.
I've had other hair straighteners before, the Chi from long long ago, some store brand ones etc. Some of the issues I've had in the past was when I clamp the straightener down, somehow the plates doesn't seal tightly / becomes loose through the years (?) so my hair doesn't straighten well. This Mia iron does. First off it feels comfortable in my hands. I like that it has that little notch on the handle and somehow that really helps me in clamping down tightly and properly. I also like the way it is made. Somehow I don't get burned when I go close to the scalp - there is more room before the plates start (?) and the handle also has more room that my hands don't feel the heat (as I wasn't wearing a heating glove - but you should wore a heating glove!).
I like the LED screen the way it shows you exactly the heat and when it starts to warm up. The power button and levels are inside the iron which is fine - its far away from the plates. And thank goodness for adding a heat resistant pouch! So very easy to store it now! There's nothing much to add. It just TOTALLY works for me. I have long frizzy hair chest length. When I want just a simple straight hair this Mia iron really works well for me. This will definitely be the iron I look for when I want that type of look. I don't know anything about titanium plates and all that. All I know is that this Mia Iron works well in straightening my hair, great on my hands and my hair looks stunning dahling ~_~
It heats up really fast. It lights up when it’s at the set temp. The light also blinks as the straightener is cooling, so when it stops you know it’s fully cooled down, which is a nice feature! The bag has lining that lets you put the straightener in it while it’s still hot, but not have to worry about it being hot because of the lining.
Theres a digital display to make it easy to see the temp. The buttons are easy to use. It beeps each time you hit one. I LOVE that the buttons are on the INSIDE instead of the outside so you won’t accidentally hit them and turn the temp up or down.
It’s a good size so it’s not too heavy and easy to hold and use. The cord swivels 360 degrees do it doesn’t get all twisted up. It glides through the hair easy and straightens it pretty fast.
I definitely recommend this. The only thing is the price point. A lot of straighteners are expensive, but this one, in my opinion, doesn’t have anything so special or unique to explain such a high price. But, it heats up fast and works really well and is easy to use, so I really love it. It’s just whether or not the price point is something for you.
I value reviews and always try to provide the kind of information I’d want to know about a product before making a purchase. So I hope that this did that for you and was helpful to you in making your decision! If so, please click “helpful” below!
I bought this mainly because of the gray color. I like my appliances to match my décor so they look visually pleasing when out on the counter, as opposed to messy & cluttered. I remodeled my bathroom gray, silver and white, so I searched everywhere for gray hair appliances. There were only black or uncommon colors like mint green or canary yellow - ugh! After I used this flat iron, I couldn't believe I paid only $150 when I purchased an identical one a few years ago for $250. I basically saved $100. It is amazing how fast it heats up - very important for working professionals. I also love the leopard storage pouch that comes with it. If you’re traveling & in a hurry to vacate your hotel, the pouch protects items in your luggage.
I received my Mia Beauty 1" straightening iron and just love it! I tried to find a gray colored hair straightener for a long time and finally stumbled across this one. It may be the only one on the market. I just hate black colored hair appliances. Black doesn't match my bathroom color and I can't leave my appliances out on the counter when they don't match. This Mia flat iron is salon quality and heats up to 450 degrees in a few seconds. It comes with this really cool leopard printed storage pouch too, an added bonus. I saw a similar hair straightener from another company that cost $100 more than this one. This is a bargain at this price! It would make a great gift but my hair is silky smooth so I will keep it for myself!
