Step 1: Choose a barrel size
Step 2: To lock the iron in place hold the barrel and the handle together and align the centerpiece inside the hold on the bottom of the barrel. Push them together until you hear a click, which alerts you the iron is locked in place. Do not change barrels when iron is heating up or hot.
Step 3: To start up plug the ceramic curling iron into an electrical outlet, and slide the switch to the "1" or "2" position. Note: Iron will be ready to use within 60 seconds. For optimum styling temperature, allow iron to heat up for 1-2 minutes before using as the iron will continue to gain heat until it reaches the highest heat level. For safety, only rest hot iron on a flat, heat proof surface.
Step 4: To change barrels wait until the barrel completely cools down. Press in the 2 black buttons simultaneously and pull barrel out from the handle. Choose a new barrel. Push them together until you hear a click, which alerts you the iron is locked in place.
