Decide if you wish to straighten or curl.
To straighten, simply place a clean neat section of hair between the two flexible plates and gently move the 'Dreamstyler' down the hair shaft in a slow but consistent motion. Repeat as necessary.
To Curl, start with a small section of hair, clamp down your Dreamstyler (gently) towards the top of the hair section. Pull the Dreamstyler down the hair shaft as if you were going to straighten your hair as usual. But when you get to the part of your hair where you'd like the curl to begin (middle-to-end of the section for a natural, beachy look), stop and pivot the Dreamstyler 180 degrees (A Half-Turn) away from your face and then gently pull down straight through the rest of your hair. Repeat.
