Rated 4.69 out of 5 stars
I recently received a mini straightener to test for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. I have to begin by saying how super excited I was to receive such an awesome product to review! The Kristin Ess Hair Nanoblack Defining + Detailing Mini Flat Iron isn't just another cute accessory for your hair. It is a FANTASTIC styling tool that makes you look like you just walked out of the salon. This product has an array of benefits. Some of which include: being made with ceramic plates to deliver soft heat, providing even heat from roots to tips, an automatic shut off after 30 minutes as a safety precaution, being the perfect styling tool for those on the go, having a single heat setting of 380° for effortless fast and easy styling, completely eliminates frizz, comes with the unique styling guide full of Pro tips for every hair type, includes a heat resistance travel guide to bring anywhere at any time, plus so much more! I use a hair straightener on a daily basis so it is safe to say I have used so many different types, varieties, sizes and brands over time that I've become familiar with the pros and cons each may have. In my personal opinion, this is by far the best, most innovative mini straightener I have ever used! I liked it so much in fact that I called a few friends and family members immediately after the first time I used it! I absolutely 100% recommend this mini straightener by Kristin Ess Hair. I was not disappointed and I'm sure you will not be either!
I want to love this. It's the perfect size for my short hair. Very aesthetically pleasing. Packs a punch. The outside heats up though, don't even attempt to hold the outside where the plates are. I could deal with this but this morning I was half awake doing my hair and I burned my neck. With the outside of the straightener. Now I'm stuck with this straightener that hates me. And I hate it. Don't even attempt to use this while you're pregaming.

I bought it for traveling because it's small. My hair is too my shoulders so not long. The iron does curls very well. It also straightens very well and keeps for at least 3 days. Highly recommend!

I really like this product because I'm not good at using flat iron I have a tendency to burning myself and this one I didn't.

I recently cut bangs after not having them for years. I absolutely could not style my hair without this small flat iron. The iron easily gives my bangs the shape I'm going for and I can straighten the hair around my bangs too. It heats up really fast (less than a minute). Keep in mind that you cannot adjust the temperature, but that has not been a problem for me and I have thin hair. It comes with a insulated travel bag too. I like the black soft touch on the outside of it as well. I use this iron every day and cannot recommend it enough. It is worth a try if you have bangs.
Lina from Ohio
Perfect compact size. Just wish I had noticed that the temperature cannot be adjusted.

I have wavy/curly/frizzy hair and I hate using straighteners because they either don't work for me, burn my hair, or take way too many passes through my hair to get it straight. This one is IT, not only is it small/compact (traveling will be perfect with it) but it heats up nice and quick and makes my hair SO straight. 10/10 product and my hair stayed that way ALL day even through walking and touching etc. no frizz either.

Very good experience. I will continue to shop for products at this store.

Great for short hair. Heats fast
SUPRMUM from COLORADO
I had been looking for a narrow plated flat iron to get in close to my roots and take care of the coarse wavy hairs on my crown that I lovingly refer to as my witch hairs. This iron heats up super fast and is HOT. It doesn't snag or drag along the hair. It glides. It worked better than my Hot Tools and my Chi irons. It seemed to maintain heat better after passes than the other irons. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the heat transfer from the plates to the outside of the iron made the close to the scalp work a little too hot after it had been on for a while. However this might make using it for curls more effective if that's what you use it for.

I've been rocking a pixie cut for roughly 20 years and I've never loved a flat iron the way I love this tool. It is the perfect size for short hair, I get the cutest curls from this! This baby glides through hair like Kristi Yamaguchi on ice. I've had a CHI for the past two years and it NEVER felt this nice on my hair from day one.
Your Mom from Oklahoma
I love that it is compact and sleek. It also produces nice curls as well as straightening. It doesn't snag my hair. Heats up quickly and has an auto shut off if you forget to turn it off.

Okay the title must be confusing but this hair curler is short hair friendly and for people who are new to curling their hair!! I love how small and easy it is to use. I shaved my head in October and my hair is now (august) close to my shoulders and this helped me curl my hair with ease.

I love the Kristin Ess Nanoblack Defining and Detailing Mini Flat Iron as it's the perfect size for my carry-on bag for travel. It doesn't take up much room in my bag and does all of the things a full size flat iron would do...plus more, for instance, in the situation of wearing an up do, you can straighten a few small sections of hair to give you a wispy look framing your face. (I carried it in my weekender for an out of town wedding I was in...didn't take up much room and practically the whole wedding party used it while we were getting ready.)
Bridget from Villanova
This is the best mini flat iron ! I have a short bob hair cut and have been searching for a way to achieve that beachy wave look and this straightner was it! It only has one heat setting (380 degrees) and the plate are only 3/4" but you get amazing results. Great price too.
Mayarv from Texas
It's a great Moni flat iron does the job perfectly and can be easily carried for travel. I have shoulder length hair and my hair is wavy. I can straighten in about 15 mins with these. They are great overall. I did get them complimentary for my honest opinion and review.
Inna from Florida
This little thing does his job. It feels very good in hand and is designed very well. I like that it has universal voltage so I can use it everywhere and also it has automatic shut-off that is very handy for negligent person like me. I don't like that it has only one temperature setting, I wish the iron had more.
Natasha from Pittsburgh, PA
This is a very sleek flat iron. I really liked using it. I have thick, long and wavy hair and it worked great for me. It didn't take me too much time to straighten all my hair. I love that it comes with a heat resistant travel bag. This is coming with me on my travels. Love the auto cut off feature also in case I forget to turn it off
MelB from Texas
After trying out this flat iron for some time, I really quite like it because it works out great for my hair. My hair was straightened with just one pass. The ceramic plates are also a plus in helping keep my hair healthy. Even though I can't control the heat, I feel that is was perfect for my hair. I highly recommend this flat iron as a travel iron because it's so compact and gets the job done.

This flat iron really gets your hair straighten silk and smooth very fast. It does not take long to heat up.
Ash.pass from Upstate NY
I have medium to thick hair and this straightener was super impressive for its size. It heats up quickly and straightens easily without leaving your hair staticky. I have not yet perfected the curl BUT I'm confident in getting there
TrueBff from San Mateo, CA
Kristin Ess Nanoblack Defining + Detailing Mini Flat Iron is a compact, sleek, effective flat iron. I have frizzy hair and this flat iron was helpful in taming that. I washed my hair and dried a bit with hair dryer and then used this to straighten my slightly wavy hair. I tool small amounts of hair and used this flat iron to style. Amazing results. I like it is easy to carry, heats fast, has a button to show when it is ready, has auto shut off if it is too hot. This will be my regular travel partner this summer onwards. Great addition to my beauty regimen.

I received this item as a complementary product from BzzAgent in exchange for my honest review.
After trying it a few times, I definitely like how it heats up pretty quickly and fixes the tight or hard to reach areas. It's perfect for bangs and close to scalp straightening. It's also perfect for traveling as it's quite compact. The only thing I'd be careful of is the handle can get a bit hot and because it's small, the holding area is limited.
Also love the heat resistant pouch it comes with.
twocrazydogsmom from Nevada
I have never owned a flat iron before and was super happy to get to try this free sample out. The first thing that really jumped out at me was the compact size and the professional packaging. It came with a travel bag that will be incredibly handy when traveling and make packing up quicker. It heated up quickly and I started to get to work. I loved how light it was (carpal tunnel wrist) and how quickly it worked on my hair. I have fine short hair and it was a snap to get cute curls. Overall I am extremely happy with the product and will continue to use it on most days. Love that I can travel with it also.
Anam from Tx
This hair straightener is amazing. Forst of all it looks very sleek. The iron heats up pretty quick and deliver enough heat to the hair without burning them. Love tye shiny straight hair it gives you.
Marga from Vista
Pro facts are the size and look of the product. Handy for travels. Does the job but unlike other flat iron, it only has 1 temp setting. But it does have an auto shut off.
