How It Works: 

Once hair is dry, separate into small sections to style. Open up the tool so that you can place your hair between the rotating barrel and the brush. To make the brush start rotating, click the brush to the barrel once. To have it rotate in the opposite direction (for the opposite side of your head), double tap and the barrel will change directions. To straighten hair, you’ll place hair between the barrel and the brush and clamp down, pulling hair through from root to tip. Most hair will be straightened in one pass, but thicker or curlier hair may need a second pass. To curl hair, place the tool at the root of hair, and wrap the length of hair around the barrel, holding it on the barrel as it spins, and releasing the hair after a few seconds or when the curl is held.
