INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS
This straightening iron is intended for household use. This unit is designed to operate at
120/240 volts AC. Use on Alternating Current
(50/60 hertz) only.
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.
DUAL VOLTAGE
This straightening iron will automatically adjust
to the proper voltage. Use an adapter plug with
correct configuration, prior to use in outlet.
TO STRAIGHTEN HAIR
Hair should be clean and completely dried before
using the straightening iron. Plug the iron into an
electrical outlet. Turn on unit. The power indicator light should become illuminated. Allow unit
to heat up for several minutes.
WARNING: The straightening iron’s plates will
get very hot within a few seconds and should
not be placed in contact with the skin after
the straightening iron has been turned on.
GETTING STARTED
The straightening iron’s 25 temperature settings
and Instant Heat technology combine to provide
styling versatility for all hair textures. If you have
fine hair, a low temperature will provide the best
results. If you have thick, wavy or hard-to-straighten hair, keep the heat setting high. You can vary
the straightening iron’s temperature according
to your particular need!
STRAIGHTENING BASICS
1. Plug the straightening iron cord into any household outlet (120/240V, red light to go on). Press
ON button. The iron will heat up very quickly. The
green indicator light will stop blinking and remain
on when the iron is ready to use. To turn off, press
OFF button (green light will go off). Never leave
your straightening iron on and unattended. How-
ever, should you fail to turn the unit off, it will
shut itself off automatically within 60 minutes.
2. Start with a hair section that is 2” wide and no
more than 1/2” thick. Open the iron and place a
hair section between the two hot plates, close to
the scalp. Trap hair between the plates by firmly
squeezing the handles together. While maintaining the tension, slowly pull the unit down along
the hair section toward the end of hair. For best
results, use a light styling lotion before blow-drying hair. At the end of hair section, release the
pressure on the handle and allow the hair section
to slide out. Repeat process on additional sections
of hair until you achieve the hair style you desire.
It may be necessary to repeat process on certain
areas, depending on the texture of your hair.
Some experience is necessary when learning to
use this straightening iron. After using iron several
times, you will learn the ideal way to straighten and
style your hair easily.
STYLING WITH THE EASY-GLIDE
CERAMIC-COATED PLATES
The plates of your new straightening iron have
an Easy-Glide ceramic-coated surface, the newest technology.
Hair glides easily over the surface of the plates
as you’re straightening. The ceramic-coated
surface also helps smooth down flyaways and
frizzies. As you smooth each strand, heat is
evenly distributed so that the style you create
has a salon-perfect, silky smooth, shining finish.
Hair slips right off the plates after it’s straightened,
and the ceramic surface is easy to clean.
The new ceramic technology is a pleasure to
work with because it makes styling your hair
easier and the results more professional.
USING INSTANT HEAT, THE 25 VARIABLE
TEMPERATURE SETTINGS AND UNIFORM
HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEM
This straightening iron features Conair’s Instant
Heat technology.
Within this Instant Heat technology there are 25
variable temperature settings for every type of
hair, from the finest to the curliest and most re-

REMOVABLE COMB
Your straightening iron includes a removable comb
attachment. The hard bristle comb will help to
provide tension and guide your hair as you use
the straightening iron. To remove or attach the
comb, turn unit off and allow unit to cool. Hold
unit firmly with one hand; with your other hand,
slide comb away from the iron to detach it. When
attaching the comb, align it with the slot on the

And that’s not all. Conair’s professional salon
standards of engineering provide you with a Uniform Heat Recovery System that maintains the
straightening iron at a
constant temperature.
There is a constant surge of power to ensure that
heat is continuously delivered for optimal styling
results, unlike other units which lose heat during
use. This provides consistent styling power so
