INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USE
DUAL VOLTAGE
This appliance utilizes a positive
temperature coefficient (PTC)
heating element and operates over
a range of voltages.
Diagram C
Confirm the voltage available at
each location before using the
appliance.
4. Fill the Reservoir with tap water.
Do not use any water other than
tap or distilled water, otherwise
malfunctioning may result.
Wipe off any spilled water
before attaching the Reservoir.
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.
5. Insert the Reservoir Plug back
into the Reservoir. Align the Plug
Tabs between the Reservoir
Slots. Push down, twist and
secure into place.
Refer to Diagram B.
USING THE RESERVOIR
Fill the Reservoir with water before
using the Iron
Caution: The Reservoir Plug area is
very hot immediately after use.
Let it cool down before filling.
6. Replace the Reservoir inside the
top of the Iron. ALign the
Reservoir Tabs with the slots
inside the Iron. Push down and
trun clockwise until it stops.
Refer to the reverse of
Diagram C.
To Fill:
1. Turn the Reservoir
counterclockwise while pushing
it into the Iron, separating it
from the rest of the unit.
Refer to Diagram C.
2. Remove the Reservoir Plug from
the Reservoir by turning and
pulling out. Refer to Diagram B.
HEATING THE IRON
3. Dampen the felt on the inside of
the cap with tap water for
5 - 6 seconds. Be sure to
dampen the felt of the cap
thoroughly before use. Steam
will not flow out well if the
felt is dry.
2. Slide the Power Switch to ON
indicated by the “1”.
1. Insert the plug into a an AC
electrical outlet.
3. When the Heat-Ready Dot
changes from red to black, the
Iron is ready to use. It will take
approximately three minutes for
the Heat-Ready Dot to change.

4. To prepare the Iron for steam,
Press the Reservoir down 3-4
times to allow steam to flow
through the Iron. The steam
may not always be visible under
normal conditions of use. If you
hear a hissing sound, steam is
being released.
7. Press the Reservoir to make
steam. Thicker hair might need
two or three presses.
Caution: Do not leave the Iron near
plastic, easily melted or flammable
materials while the Barrel is hot.
Diagram D
USING THE IRON
Use only on dry hair.
For better curl control, it is
recommended to add a styling
mousse or styling spray to towel
dried hair. Thoroughly dry the hair
and proceed with curling.
8. Hold the curl in place for about
30 seconds (longer for thicker or
naturally curly hair).
9. Unwind carefully, raise the Hair
Clamp to release the hair, and
let the curl cool.
1. Comb through hair and loosen
any tangles.
2. Gather a section of hair
1 inch wide. Make sure that the
section is not too thick or hair
will not curl properly.
CURLING TECHNIQUE
Before Curling:
3. Press the Lever to raise the
Hair Clamp.
Using sections is helpful when
curling hair.
4. Insert the end of the hair under
the Hair Clamp on the side
where the arrows are
facing.(Diagram D)
1. Begin by sectioning off a "U"
shape at the top crown of the
head and clip.
5. Lower the Hair Clamp to secure
the hair against the Barrel.
6. Rotate the handle counterclockwise to wind the
hair along the Barrel between
the guides. It is easier if you
support the Reservoir loosely
with the other hand.

2. Next, section off each side by
taking a part from the crown
section to the back of the ear
and clip. This divides the front
side from the back of the head.
STORAGE
After use, slide the Power Switch to
OFF indicated by the “0”, unplug
from outlet and allow the HeatReady Dot to change to red. Once
the Iron is completely cooled down,
store in a cool dry place. Do not
wrap cord around Iron.
3. Take the back section and divide
that horizontally from ear to ear
and clip both sections.
4. Within each section take 1-inch
vertical sections. Unclip one
section at a time.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Once build-up appears on the Iron,
the unit will have to be cleaned.
Make sure the Iron is off, unplugged
and completely cooled down
before cleaning.
5. Start curling the hair at the back
nape of the neck and work your
way up the back of the head.
Remove the Reservoir, take out the
Reservoir Plug, and remove any
remaining water.
Wipe the Handle, Barrel, and Hair
Clamp with a soft damp cloth.
If the Barrel becomes coated with
hair product residue, the holes for
the steam will become blocked. To
prevent this, use a medium to soft
brush (an old toothbrush works
best) to remove any build-up and
clear out the steam holes. After
loosening the residue, wipe down
with a soft damp cloth.
Caution:
Do not rest Iron on skin.
6. Once the back is finished,
continue on to the sides.
7. The crown of the head will be
the last to be curled. Divide the
crown into 3 vertical sections. It
is easiest to take one long 1inch section from part to part,
then divide that into a 1-inch
wide section.
Allow to dry completely before use.
Do not use harsh abrasives,
cleaning agents or solvents.
Do not place Iron in any liquids.
