How To Use

  1. Place Swizzler hairsetter on a flat surface and plug into electrical (120 AC) outlet.  Never block the air openings of the appliance or place it on a soft surface, such as a bed or couch, where the air openings may be blocked. 
  2. With the lid closed, allow Swizzler rollers to heat.  In just a few minutes your rollers will be hot and you can begin to set your hair.  

If you want tight curls allow the rollers to heat longer before use.  A "ready dot" on the front of the curlers will turn black when the unit has reached its optimal heat.  

For best use with short hair or for loose curls, remove a roller from the heat unit and allow to cool for a several seconds prior to use on your hair.

  1. For optimal results, hair should be clean and dry.  Take one section of hair at a time, as you would with any other roller.  Comb section and hold with hand.
  2. Placing a Swizzler Roller vertically at the very end of the selected hair section, start to roll your hair vertically up towards your scalp, using the "ribs" on the roller as a guide.  When rolling, be sure to include the very ends of the hair to ensure the most consistently formed curl.  

You may want to secure the ends of the hair around the roller with your thumb.  Hair adheres easy to the roller.

Note:  The center of the rollers will be hot.  To prevent burns, be sure to hold rollers by ends to roll hair, and avoid direct contact with the scalp.  

  1. Swizzlers Rollers have an interlocking system which do not require clips.  Simply bend both ends of roller together and secure by inserting one end (without hole) into center of the hole on opposite end of roller.
  2. To create a larger diameter curl, take larger sections of hair and simply place two rollers together, and roll section of hair over both rollers, (use ribs on rollers as a guide,) bend ends together and secure.  For loose curl, only roll hair halfway up before securing.
  3. Repeat all the above steps until all sections of hair are set.  After set is complete, unplug Swizzler Hairsetter.  Leave Swizzlers Rollers in hair for about 15 minutes or until they cool, to achieve the tightest curl.  Soft curls will form well in only 5 minutes.  The set time may vary depending on your hair type.

To spot curl sections of your hair you can also use a Conair curling iron or brush.

How To Remove Curlers

Carefully remove rollers by sliding end of rollers from hole and gently unwinding.  Once all rollers are removed, allow hair to cool, then style as desired.  Use fingers or a wide tooth comb to style to avoid disrupting the new curls as much as possible.

Swizzler rollers are washable.  If desired, use a damp cloth with mild detergent or soap to wipe off the curlers by hand.  Let the curlers dry before putting back in the hairsetter unit.

Sample Hair Styles - Loose Wavy Look

Roll hair up 2 inches from the roots.  Unroll when cool.  Put gel on fingertips and comb through the hair.  Pull out a few separate strands with your fingers to get a loose look.

Sample Hair Styles - Smooth Curly Look

Roll hair up all the way to the roots being careful not to touch the scalp with the curlers.  Unroll when cool and brush lightly, scrunching hair with hands into curls or wavey.  Spray to hold shape.
