Consult the enclosed user guide prior to use. Begin with dry, detangled hair. Divide hair at the temples and secure the top half out of the way. Then divide the bottom half into 1-2'' sections to begin styling. Hold the wand over your head with the tip pointing downward and wrap a section of hair around the barrel. Finish with the end of the section against the barrel tip. Hold for a few seconds, then slide the wand out to release the wave.
Precautions: Use a heat resistant glove when styling to protect against accidental burns in case your hand comes in contact with the heated barrel.
