OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
This styler is intended for household use. Use on Alternating Current (60 Hz) only. This unit is
designed to be operated at 125VAC.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If
it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
TO CURL HAIR
Hair should be clean, completely dry and combed before you use the curling device. Plug into an
electrical outlet and turn on the switch. The red LED will blink while Curl Secret is heating up.
Red light must stop blinking and be steady before curling hair.
WARNING: The styler's tourmaline ceramic-coated curl chamber will get very hot within a
few seconds and should not be placed in contact with the skin after the styler has been
turned on.
The secret to Curl Secret is how easy it makes creating the perfect curl – a tight spiral, a big loose
curl, even a relaxed wave – one after another! Hair goes in, curl comes out. It’s that simple.
For best results, start with freshly washed and dried hair.
If you are curling the lower layers first, you might want to clip some hair out of the way.
TO CURL HAIR (cont.)
First, decide what type of curl you’d like – spirals or tighter curls, which can be shaped into a vintage
chic style, or bigger curls or relaxed waves, which are beautiful on their own, and can be tousled into
a natural “undone” look.
For spirals or tighter curls, choose the high heat setting and the 10- or 12-second timer setting.
For a looser curl or wave, we recommend the low setting and the 8- or 10-second timer setting.
As you use this innovative new styler, you’ll discover the settings that let you best create the
curls you want.
Remember: Before starting, make sure the temperature indicator light
has stopped blinking.
1. Begin by carefully combing through hair to smooth it. Then take a ½ in. to 1 in.
A
section (Fig. A).
2. Please note the styler must be positioned into the hair with the
opening of the curl chamber facing toward the head (Figure B).
3. Position the styler where you want the curl to start. The hair section
B
must be straight, and placed neatly through the center of the hair guide
(Fig. C and D).
4. Once the hair is in place, let go of the hair section and close the handle
C
to allow the hair to be automatically taken into the curl chamber (Fig. E).
5. Open the Curl Secret and gently pull it away from the head to release a
perfect curl (Fig. F)! Let it cool in place for a minute to set the curl. Quick
heat-up and recovery, and Curl Secret’s fully automatic curling technology,
E
let you make consistently perfect curls – one after another – effortlessly!
It’s a revolutionary new way to curl your hair. Fast, easy, and always perfect, curl after curl.

NOTE: Curl Secret’s new brushless motor technology uses magnets instead of brushes to sense any
change in speed, and turns itself off as an added safety feature and to ensure tangle-free curling
action. Minimizes weight, maximizes curl control, and significantly extends the life of your appliance.
NOTE: If you continue to hold the hair section after closing the handle, Curl Secret will stop and beep
to indicate that you must release the tension on the hair. If you have taken too much hair, or hair is
not neatly going through the center of the appliance, the Curl Secret will again stop and beep to
indicate a problem. This safety feature ensures there will be no tangles.
• The hair is automatically drawn into the ceramic curl chamber, where it is softly held and heated
from all directions to effortlessly form the curl.
• The automatic beep indicator will start as soon as the handles are closed together. There will be a
series of individual beeps. Hold the styler still, with the handles held together, until the end of the
individual beeps. There will then be four quick beeps in succession. This indicates that the time is up
and you can remove the styler from your hair.
NOTE: Always release the handles first to set the curl free; if you pull away before you open the
handles, the curl will be straightened out.
• To allow the curl to set, do not comb or brush the hair until it cools.
• Repeat around the head until you have the amount of curls desired.
ADDED FEATURES
Curl Secret comes with 3 functions for added safety and energy savings:
Auto Shut-Off: If the appliance is switched on for more than 60 minutes continuously, it will
automatically switch off. If you wish to continue using the appliance, simply slide the switch to the
“O” position and then slide the switch to the relevant setting to turn the power on.
Sleep Mode: Energy efficient – after 20 minutes of idle time, temperature drops to around 150˚C/300˚F.
Motion Sensor: Ends sleep mode and reheats to selected temperature when handle is closed.
NOTE: Curl chamber will be hot to the touch.

GETTING STARTED
THE NEW TOURMALINE CERAMIC EASY-GLIDE STYLER
The styler's two unique high-heat temperature settings and Instant Heat technology provide styling
versatility for all hair types. If you have fine hair, the lower temperature will provide the best results.
If you have thick, wavy or hard-to-curl hair, keep the heat setting on high. Create a variety of curls
with different combinations of heat and time!

The Curl Secret has a tourmaline ceramic easy-glide coated surface, the newest technology. This
means it’s not only simpler to clean off styling product residue, etc. after each use, but you’ll find that
hair glides easily over the coated surface of the curl chamber as you’re curling. The tourmaline
ceramic coated surface also helps smooth down flyaways and frizzies.
It evenly distributes heat so that the style you create has a salon-perfect, silky smooth, shining finish.
Hair also slips right through the curl chamber after it’s curled.
The new Tourmaline Ceramic™ technology makes styling your hair easier and the results more
professional.
Never leave your styler on and unattended. However, should you fail to turn the styler off, it will shut
itself off automatically within 60 minutes.
USING INSTANT HEAT, THE 2 HIGH HEAT TEMPERATURE SETTINGS &
UNIFORM HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM
This styler features a high-performance heater that maintains constant temperature during use for
precision styling. This Instant Heat technology has two high heat temperature settings. There is a
temperature that’s gentle and safe for every type of hair, from the finest to the curliest and most
resistant, and helps you create the look you want. And that’s not all. Conair’s professional salon
standards of engineering provide you with a uniform and improved heat recovery system that
maintains the iron at constant temperatures. There is a constant surge of power to ensure that heat
is continuously and quickly delivered for optimal styling results, unlike other units, which lose heat
during use. This provides consistent styling power so that every strand of your hair is set with the
same level of heat and comes out the same way for a perfect finish.
Curl Secret is energy efficient. The sleep mode function drops the styler's temperature to 300°F
if styler remains idle after 20 minutes. And auto shut-off turns the Curl Secret off after 60 minutes.
USER MAINTENANCE
Your styler is virtually maintenance free. No lubrication is needed. Keep all vents and openings clear
of dirt and dust. If cleaning becomes necessary, disconnect the unit from the power source, allow to
cool and wipe exterior with a cloth. If any abnormal condition occurs, unplug the unit, allow it to cool,
and return it for repair to an authorized service representative only. No repairs should be attempted
by the consumer.
CAUTION
NEVER allow the power supply cord to be pulled, twisted, or severely bent. Never wrap the cord
tightly around the appliance. Damage will occur at the high flex point of entry into the appliance,
causing it to rupture and short circuit. Inspect the cord frequently for damage. Stop use immediately
if damage is visible or if unit stops or operates intermittently.
STORAGE
When not in use, your appliance is easy to store. Allow appliance to cool, then simply store out of
reach of children in a safe, dry location. Do not jerk or strain cord at plug connections. Do not wrap
the line cord around the appliance. Allow the cord to hang or lie loose and straight at the point of
entry into the appliance.
TO CLEAN CHAMBER:

WARNING:
IF YOU THINK
THE POWER IS OFF
WHEN THE SWITCH
IS OFF,
YOU’RE WRONG.
KEEP AWAY FROM WATER
Everyone knows that electricity and water are a dangerous combination. But did you know that an electric appliance is still electrically live even if the switch is off? If the plug is in, the power is on. So when
you are not using your appliances, keep them unplugged.
