Fashion Math: Is A Flat Iron Worth The Price Of An Airline Ticket?

There are certain things women are serious about and one of those things is our hair. We’ll go to great lengths to get the perfect hair. But what about spending $350 on a flat iron? It’s pretty much a proven fact that the FHI Runway flat iron is the best iron for straightening your hair without frying it, but is it really worth the price of a plane ticket?  Let’s do the Fashion Math.

If you straighten your hair three times a week for the next year–that’s 3 times 52 which equals 156-you’ll have spent more on your coffee combo from Dunkin’ Donuts than on this flat iron.  And best of all, you won’t find yourself having to replace it every six month like you would with cheaper irons.
