LINE CORD SAFETY TIPS

1.Never pull or yank on the cord or the appliance.

2.To insert plug, grasp it firmly and guide it into outlet.

3.To disconnect appliance, grasp plug and remove it from outlet.

4.Before each use, inspect the line cord for cuts and/or abrasion marks. If any are found, this indicates that the appliance should be serviced and the line cord replaced.

5.Never wrap the cord tightly around the appliance, as this could place undue stress on the cord where it enters the appliance and cause it to fray and break.

DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE IF THE LINE CORD SHOWS ANY DAMAGE, OR IF APPLIANCE WORKS INTERMITTENTLY OR STOPS WORKING ENTIRELY.

IMPORTANT: During the first few minutes of initial use, there may be a slight odor. This is normal and will quickly disappear.

HOW TO USE

This appliance is for household use and may be plugged into any AC electrical outlet (ordinary household current). Do not use any other electrical outlet.

WARNING: The barrel of this curling iron will be hotter than regular curling irons.Extra care should be taken when using.

Keep unit away from contact with all skin areas. Do not touch iron barrel with fingertips.

For short hair, place thin plastic comb between scalp and curling iron barrel to avoid touching scalp.

Test on a small section of hair before using.

TO USE:

Making curls is a snap with this beautifully designed iron. For a complete styling, hair should be clean, dry and free from dirt, hair spray, creams, etc. (Of course, this iron can always be used for quick touch-upsand rescues any time.)

PRE-HEAT:Rest the iron on its safety stand on a smooth, flat surface and plug in. Turn on, and allow iron to heat.

STYLING: Start by sectioning hair into strands of not more than 1 inch deep and 2 inches wide.

Keep the hair strand smooth by brushing or combing through the section while holding the ends taut with the other hand.

Taking one section at a time, place the ends of hair under the barrel with the clamp open. Then close the clamp, making sure that the ends extend just a tiny bit beyond the clamp.

Keep the section of hair taut as you wind it around the hot barrel by turning the handle. Wind the curl toward scalp as far as you wish to go without touching scalp with the hot barrel.

Hold the curl in place for up to 20 seconds for tight curls or if hair is hard to curl. Hold for less time if hair is easy to curl, or if you want loose curls or just waves. When you are ready to release curl, unwind about half a turn (for longer hair, unwind a bit more) and open the clamp. Now, gently withdraw the barrel from the center of curl. Allow curl to cool, and try not to disturb curls as you proceed in the same manner around whole head.

When completely finished, and all curls have cooled thoroughly, gently brush and comb hair into the style you wish.

STYLING TIP: For bouncy, flip-upcurls, the clamp should beunder and the barrelover the section of hair at the start of curl. Forcurl-under,page-boystyles, the clamp should beover and the barrelunder the hair section at the start of curl.

USING THE ROTATING HANDLE

TO ROTATE: Simply pull out the lock mechanism end cap and twist. Before using, be sure that the end cap is in the extended lock position. The handle will now swivel easily.

FOR STATIONARY USE: Pull out the lock mechanism end cap, reverse the twist and push inward, positioning locking pins into holes in handle. Your iron handle is now in the standard stationary position.

CARE AND CLEANING

This appliance requires little maintenance and contains no user serviceable parts. Do not try to fix it yourself. Refer it to qualified service personnel if servicing is needed.

TO CLEAN: Unplug curling iron and allow to cool. Iron must be cleaned only when cold. Use a soft, slightly damp cloth to wipe the handle. Do not allow water or any other liquid to go into handle of the iron.

TO STORE: Unplug appliance and let it cool; store in its box or in a clean, dry place. Store the cord loosely coiled.Never wrap the cord around unit; this could cause the cord to wear prematurely and break. Do not put any stress on cord where it enters the handle, as it could cause the cord to fray and possibly break. Never hang unit up by the power cord.
