Plaid Flatiron for the Holidays

Paul Mitchell's new Limited Edition Express Ion Smooth iron is absolutely adorable! It comes in a new festive plaid pattern, which is right on for trend this coming holiday season. The Express Ion Smooth features the Paul Mitchell Express Ion Complex—super-charged negative ions that break up water molecules and penetrate them into the hair shaft ensuring a hydrated, conditioned and frizz-free look, while the tool’s far-infrared heat protects hair from thermal damage.

The limited edition iron also comes with a  patterned thermal pouch, perfect for traveling, and a Paul Mitchell Medium Express Ion Round Brush.

I brought this iron to the salon at Pivot Point Academy, and the students were oohing and ahhing over it. It really is adorable--perfect for your salon station, or under your clients' trees this holiday.

The Limited Edition Plaid Express Ion Smooth comes complete with:
-1.25” Ceramic plates
-Plate size and shape are ideal for straightening and smoothing
-Beveled Edges, ensures no line of demarcation
-Cushioned Plates, a tension-reducing technology allows you to smooth and polish hair without damaging the hair cuticle
