Start from fully-charged and keep the cable connected. Once finished, connect the cable or place on the dock to charge – ready for your next styling session.In case you didn’t already know, in just 40 minutes your straightener will charge from 0 to 90%.

Our team of dedicated experts have brought together their top tips to help you use the Flyaway attachment. Hold it at the top of your head until your hair is attracted to it. Then slowly run it along the length of your hair without pressing down on it. To style the back, rotate the attachment 45 degrees and slowly run it down the back of your head. Use the cool edges to attach, rotate or remove the Flyaway attachment. Always use on the high speed setting. For thicker hair types, we recommend using on the 212°F heat setting (high). To retain volume while smoothing your hair, we recommend using the 140°F cool setting (low). The Flyaway attachment can also be used to create flicks at the ends of your hair, if desired. If not, avoid running the attachment to the ends of your hair, or go over the ends using the 82°F cold setting (cold shot). The attachment should be used on dry and straight, or straightened, hair.
