Long-lasting curls. Gold barrel creates smooth and hydrated curls, waves and ringlets with incredible shine and staying power.

Key Features:
  • Gold surface distributes heat evenly for consistent, long-lasting curls
  • Adjustable temperature control; quickly heats up to 430F
  • Extra-long cool tip and insulated thumb grip ensure comfort and total control
  • Locking temperature dial for safe operation
  • Dual voltage for worldwide use
  • Added bonus: Includes a free easy-to-replace spring for tool longevity

Temperature Setting - Hair Type:
  • 280 - 320F Fragile, fine, thin hair
  • 320 - 380F Normal, medium hair
  • 380 - 410F Thick, coarse hair
  • 410 - 430F Professional use only
Press the power button once to turn on. To adjust the heat setting, press the temperature dial to allow it to pop out. Turn the dial to your desired heat setting and push the dial back in to lock it. The curling iron will reach your selected temperature in three minutes. Once you have finished curling, press the power button to turn off and unplug the tool. This iron is intended for professional and consumer use. This iron has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit securely, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

Styling Tips: Make sure hair is completely dry before use. Use a comb when styling for best results. Take small sections of hair for optimum results. Take a section of hair (the smaller the section, the tighter the curl). Clamp the ends of this section in between the barrel and the clamp holding the barrel vertically. Wrap your hair around the barrel. For fine hair: hold the iron in place for 5 to 8 seconds. For thick hair: hold the iron in place for 10 - 15 seconds. To release the curl, press the thumb grip to release the ends of your hair. Gently pull the barrel out of the curled section and then twirl the barrel counterclockwise, until the curl slips off the top of the barrel. Allow curls to cool before combing or brushing. Turn the iron off before unplugging it.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Paul Mitchell Express Gold Curl:

            This is gentle on hair as usual; although I have found the very bottom of the nook and cranny between the barrel and tong (don't know the technical term for it) does occasionally snag my hair. You just have to be careful not to wedge your hair down in there. I was a little disappointed that my curl does not seem to hold as long as other irons I have used, but maybe I am not cranking up the heat high enough.

            Comments about Paul Mitchell Express Gold Curl:

            I recently cut my my hair (which was uber long) to an angled lob. Once I got this thing is spiced up my hair style possibilities! Works great and I have never really used a curling iron very much; so to me is is very user/beginner friendly. Would definitely recommend this product!
