3 Brush to de-tangle your hair. Depending on your desired results, take
a hair strand between 2cm and 4cm (for loose waves take a thicker
strand, for tight curls take a thinner strand).
4 Hold the curler horizontally and point it away from your head and

After Use
1 Switch off the appliance and unplug it.
2 Place it on a heat-resistant surface until it cools down. You can also
hang it with the hanging loop ( ).
3 Remove hairs and dust from the barrel.
4 Clean the barrel with a damp cloth.
5 Caring for velvet material:
• To ensure you can get the most out of the curler, DO NOT use
any form of wet goods (except for heat protection spray) before
and during use.
• Use a damp cloth and gently dab on the velvet surface wherever
residue or dust is found. If necessary, you may use a soft brush (e.g.
toothbrush) to gently remove stubborn particles found on the
velvet surface.
6 Keep it in a safe and dry place, free of dust.
Styling Tips:
• The thinner the strand, the tighter the curl.
• For a modern wave, start the curl at the level of your cheekbone.
Also, leave the last few centimeters uncurled. Comb it through with
your fingers or a brush.
• This curler can also be used for creating volume at the hair roots.
Hold a section of hair at 90degrees to the scalp. Place the barrel 1
cm above the roots (avoid touching the scalp) and lay the strand
onto the widest part of the barrel.
• If your hair has a natural wave, you can use the curler on just a few
or the top sections to enhance the curls all around.
• When you have finished curling your hair, allow all the curls to fully
cool down before continuing with styling.
• For defined curls, do not brush your hair after curling. For a wavy,
voluminous look, gently brush the curls out with a natural bristle
brush. Start by brushing through the ends and work your way up.
