Before styling hair, apply a heat protective serum like amika Obliphica Hair Treatment, which is packed with vitamins and nutrients and will smooth frizzes and keep hair hydrated.

Birchbox Breakdown

When you’re gearing up for a trip, packing your bags can quickly turn into survival of the smallest (especially with regard to bulky beauty tools). Save space with amika’s colorful mini styler, which is about half the size of the brand’s classic iron and perfect for travel. It heats up in just 10 seconds, and the floating plates avoid any uncomfortable tugs on your tresses. Plus, the pretty peacock pattern is a Birchbox exclusive you won’t find anywhere else!

How it Works

We joined forces with amika and our Facebook fans to design this cute mini flat iron. Not only does it feature a colorful peacock print, its tug-free plates heat up in just ten seconds. Get it for free with your $75+ order, or you can purchase the styler on its own for $29. Limit one per cart. Cannot be combined with any other offers. Free returns on mini irons purchased except when redeemed as a free gift with purchase. In order to return a purchase including this item as a gift, orders must be returned in their entirety.

How to Use

Spray clean hair with a heat-protective mist and blow dry. Plug in the styler, and wait 10 seconds. Place a one-inch section of hair in between the plates, and glide the tool from root to tip in one fluid motion. Repeat as necessary to achieve desired straightness.

Fast and convenient!
Purchased

Small and perfect for all traveling. It works great for short hair and bangs! I used on my long hair and my moms pixie cut!

Great for Short Hair
Purchased

I got this because I travel light and often. This little tool doesn't take up much space. It is too small to do all of my hair (I have curly shoulder length hair) , but it is great for touch ups or quick style repair. My daughter loves using it on her very short hair.

Great purse-sized flatiron!
Purchased

I was very skeptical at first because although my hair is naturally pretty straight, I have very long thin, fine hair that gets frizzy fast if I use a cheap flatiron. It's a little small for my whole head, though it is possible to use since my hair is so fine, it just takes a long time. I use it every morning on my side bangs and I love having this in my purse for a quick touch-up while I'm on the go. For me, this item is a must, because my job keeps me on the go and I need to be able to carry something so small yet effective for a quick touch up.

Cute but VERY small
Purchased

While adorable, the tiny size makes this impractical and ultimately not that useful. I guess it could be used on bangs (which I don't have)? Or on tiny clumps of very fine hair? Who knows what was the intended use. But this one is just gathering dust in its (admittedly, very cute) pouch.

will definitely be buying full size
Purchased

since i have really long hair with no bangs it was hard to use the mini version of this straightener however will definitely be buying the larger version in the near future because this is a great one that I hope will be the lasting straightener.

Don't spend the money
Purchased

But if you can get it as a gift with purchase like I did, it's a great little straightener to keep in your bag for touch ups on the go!

REALLY small
Purchased

I thought that this straightener would be a little bigger. If you want to just use it for bangs it may work, but I feel like it just breaks my hair when tried it.

Great for my bangs!
Purchased

Got this as a bonus and use it almost daily on my bangs. Heats up fast and is the perfect size. Probably a bit to small to use on the rest of my hair as I have thick curls but I haven't tried.

Just ok
Purchased

It is perfect for travel with the size - but it seems to pull my hair so it isn't the nicest straightener. I still travel with my chi.

travel pal
Purchased

This is just perfect for traveling. It is so compact that it could fit in your luggage for a weekend or day getaway or is pefect to bring along a full getaway. It takes up as much space as a wallet.
