When using this electrical appliance, especially when children are present, basic safety precautions should always be observed including the following.


  • Read the instruction manual in full to familiarize yourself with the product before the first use.
  • This appliance can be used by children from aged 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision.
  • Keep the appliance and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years.
  • Use this appliance only for its intended purpose.
  • Do not use with a voltage converter.


  • Danger! Electric shock due to damage to appliance
  • Do not operate the appliance with a broken cord or plug, or if the appliance malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in anyway.
  • If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the work surface or let it touch any hot surfaces.
  • The use of attachments that are not supplied by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury and damage to the appliance.
    WARNING: Do not use this appliance near bathtubs, showers, basins or other vessels containing water.
    Danger! Electric shock due to penetration of liquid.
  • To protect against risk of electrical shock, never immerse the unit or let it come into contact with water or any other liquids. Do not use the unit with wet hands. If the appliance should become wet, damp or fall in water, remove plug from mains socket immediately. Do not put your hands in the water. Do not take into bathroom.
  • When the hairdryer is used in the bathroom, unplug it after use since the proximity of water presents a hazard even when the hairdryer is switched off.
  • For additional protection, the installation of a residual current device (RCD) having a rated residual operating current not exceeding 30 mA is advisable in the electrical circuit supplying the bathroom. Ask your installer for advice. (NOTE: Mains sockets might not be permitted in average sized bathrooms according to local wiring regulations.)
    Warning! Injuries due to incorrect handling
  • Switch off the appliance and unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off attachments and also before cleaning the appliance.
  • Care should be taken to avoid contact with the skin, the face and neck.
    Caution! Danger of product damage
  • Never use your appliance without paying attention!
  • Always unplug the unit when not in use or left unattended.
  • Do not wrap the cord around the appliance.
  • Do not obstruct the inlet or outlet grills.
  • If however, the airflow is inadvertently obstructed during use, the built in thermal safety device will automatically cut out the appliance. The hairdryer will switch on again automatically after cooling down for a few minutes.
  • Do not use outdoors or in damp areas.
  • Never carry the unit by its power cord.
  • Do not drop or insert any object into any opening.
  • Allow the appliance to cool before storing away.


  1. Before plugging in check the voltage on the rating label corresponds to the local mains voltage.
  2. As a general guide, use the HIGH heat and speed setting for rough drying for thicker hair, and the LOW setting for finer hair and more precise control when styling. The cool setting can be used at the end to set the style.
  3. Wash and condition the hair, then gently towel dry hair to remove excess water. DO NOT use the hair dryer on hair that is dripping wet.
  4. Start styling at the back of the hair and work forwards.
  5. Do not concentrate the airflow on any one area for an extended period of time.


Your Hair dryer has 3 temperature settings and 2 speed settings, which provides 6 different heat and speed variations plus cool shot

  • High Heat – High Speed
  • Medium Heat – Medium Speed
  • Low Heat – Low Speed

NOTE: During the first few minutes of the initial use you may notice smoke and a slight odour. This is normal and will quickly disappear


The air concentrator nozzle is useful for directing airflow or spot drying. We recommend using a round brush to speed the drying of hair. The concentrator is easily fitted to the front of the dryer and may be turned to the desired position.

IMPORTANT: Do not use the attachments on high settings as overheating can cause damage to both the dryer and the attachments.


Ensure that the pik is securely positioned and correctly aligned.

Only use accessories provided with this hairdryer.


  1. At the motor end of the dryer there is a filter cover which may be removed for cleaning.
  2. The filter prevents hair from being sucked into the motor end of your hair dryer.
  3. To remove the filter cover, simply hold filter cover and twist until the centre of the cover (A) is in a Horizontal position (Figure: 1).

    Figure: 1
  4. To refit the filter cover, simply replace it in the horizontal position and turn until the centre of the cover is in a Vertical position (Figure: 2).

    Figure: 2
  5. It is recommended that the filter cover is removed regularly for cleaning, and thereby allowing air to flow freely through the motor and fan unit.


  • Always unplug the hair dryer before cleaning.
  • Do not immerse in water.
  • Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the body of the hair dryer, and dry with a clean cloth.
  • Store the appliance in a drawer or hang-up away from dust or moisture.
