IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, especially when children are
present, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including
the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
KEEP AWAY FROM WATER
DANGER: As with most electrical appliances, electrical parts are
electrically live even when the switch is off.
To reduce the risk of death by electrical shock:
1. Always "unplug it" immediately after using.
2. Do not use while bathing, in damp rooms, or over a hand basin or
vessel filled with water.
3. Do not place or store appliance where it can fall or be pulled into
tub or sink.
4. Do not place in or drop into water or other liquid.
5. If an appliance falls into water, "unplug it" immediately. Do not
reach into the water.
6. Never use the appliance with wet hands. Never immerse appliance
in water. Never hold this appliance under running water or allow it
to become wet (as in splashing).
WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, electrocution, fire, or injury
to persons:
1. Do not leave appliance unattended while it is operating or is
plugged in.
2. Close supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by, on, or
near children or invalids.
3. Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this
manual. Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer.
4. Never operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it
is not working properly, if it has been dropped or damaged in any
manner, or dropped into water. Contact Consumer Service for

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
THIS PRODUCT IS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT
SAFEGUARDS
1. The Barrel of this Curling Iron is hot when in use. Do not let eyes or
bare skin touch heated surfaces.
2. Do not touch Barrel with fingertips.
3. Do not place the heated Curling Iron directly on any surface while it
is hot or plugged in. Use the Safety Stand provided.
4. For shorter hair, place a thin plastic comb between scalp and
Curling Iron Barrel to avoid touching scalp.
5. Do not use styling products in the hair prior to curling.
6. Test on a small section of hair before using.
NOTE: Use on dry hair only. Do not use this appliance on
synthetic hair or wigs.
WARNING: Keep the cord away from hot metal surfaces.
Polarized Plug
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other.) To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended
to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

OPERATING THE
PROFESSIONAL
SWIVEL CURLING IRON
CURLING IRON OPERATION
CAUTION:
• Do not rest Curling Iron
on its side.
• NEVER leave the
Curling Iron ON and
unattended.
• Barrel is hot. Do not
touch with fingers.
When used correctly, the
Professional Swivel Curling Iron
will help you to achieve the latest
fashionable styles. With this
salon-quality tool, you will be
able to style your hair in no time!
BEFORE STYLING THE HAIR
Operation
IMPORTANT: Before styling,
ensure that the hair is clean, dry,
and tangle-free.
We do not recommend using
styling products in the hair prior
to curling. Some products are
flammable and will cause the hair
to stick to the Curling Iron. Buildup from products will coat the
Barrel and Clamp and prevent the
hair from curling efficiently. Use
styling/shine products after the
hair is curled.
1. Plug the Power Cord into a
standard Household AC outlet.
2. Slide the POWER Switch to the
desired heat setting (HI or LO.)
The red POWER Indicator Light
will illuminate.
3. It will take approximately 2
minutes for the Curling Iron to
heat up. You may rest the
supervised Curling Iron on its
Safety Stand on a smooth, flat
surface during this time.
4. Style your hair as desired.
5. When you are finished using the
Curling Iron, slide the POWER
Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit.
You may notice a metallic
smell the first time using the
Curling Iron. This is normal and
will cease with use.
DUAL VOLTAGE: This appliance
utilizes a positive temperature
coefficient (PTC) heating element
and operates over a range of
voltages.
Confirm the voltage available at
each location before using the
appliance.
For connection to a 240-volt
supply or above, use an
attachment plug adaptor (not
included) of the proper
configuration for the power
supply receptacle.

STYLING TIPS
Steaming or Singeing?
When the hair is steaming, there
will be a slight product odor and
white steam. This is normal.
When the hair is singeing, there
will be a strong odor and light to
dark "smoke." You can tell the
hair is damaged from excessive
heat when the hair frazzles and
possibly discolors.
Notice: The Curling Iron uses a
ceramic PTC heating element for
fast heat-up and constant
temperature. Care should always
be used when hair is in contact
with the hot Barrel of the Curling
Iron.
Steam
1. If product build-up is on the
hair, or a conditioner has been
used, you will notice a slight
amount of steam coming from
the Curling Iron. This is normal.
However, if large amounts
of steam are forming,
discontinue curling. Slide
POWER Switch to OFF and
unplug the unit.
2. Wash your hair with a clarifying
shampoo to remove the buildup. Condition hair with a light
conditioner as necessary, and
dry the hair thoroughly.
3. Proceed in curling hair.
Frazzled Hair
Over-curling can frazzle hair! Some
hair strands will form kinks, unlike the
natural curl of the hair.
This is the first sign of hair damage.
Discontinue curling immediately.
WARNING: DO NOT TRY TO CURL
DAMAGED HAIR!
Chemically Treated Hair
1. Use CAUTION when curling
chemically treated, colored, or
permed hair.
2. Cut down the time used for
curling chemically treated,
colored, or permed hair.
3. Smaller sections are better for
thick or resistant hair.

STYLING
8. When you are ready to release
curl, unwind about half a turn
(for longer hair unwind a bit
more) and push down on the
Clamp Release Lever to open
the Clamp.
9. Gently withdraw the Barrel
from the center of the curl.
10. Allow curl to cool and try not
to disturb curls as you
proceed in the same manner
around the whole head.
1. Divide hair into sections no
more than 2 inches wide before
starting.
2. Keep the hair strand smooth by
brushing or combing through
the section while holding the
ends taut with the other hand.
3. Taking one section at a time,
place the ends of hair over the
Barrel with the Clamp open.
4. Close the Clamp making sure
that the ends extend just a tiny
bit beyond the Clamp.
See Fig.1.
Timing
1. The Curling Iron uses a
ceramic PTC heating element
for fast heat-up and constant
temperature. You will need to
test how long it takes to curl
your hair from the roots to the
ends.
2. First test an inconspicuous
section of your hair. Use
thinner sections for thick,
resistant hair.
3. Begin timing at 5-8 seconds
for fine, thin hair. Hold the
curl in place for 9-12 seconds
for thick or coarse hair. Then
release the curl and view the
results. If more time is needed,
skip to a new section of hair
until you find the right time
needed.
Fig. 1
5. Grasp the Cool Touch Tip with
the other hand to roll hair
6. Keep the section of hair taut as
you wind it around the hot
Barrel by slowly turning the
Handle. Wind the curl toward
your scalp as far as you wish to
go without touching scalp with
the hot Barrel.
7. Hold the curl in place for the
needed length of time to
achieve the desired effect
(See following section on
TIMING.)
