It's a brush but it works similar to a curling iron. It's a hot brush. A hot brush will not give you cascades of curls. If that is what you want, you will need to buy a hot roller set. But a hot brush will give you volume, body and wave. It is ideal for short hair. If you have short hair and use a hot brush, you will get loose curls. If you have long hair, you will get a little wave and curl at the tips of your hair. Hot brushes also are ideal for curling bangs.
Plug in your hot brush and allow it to heat up. This takes a varying amount of time depending on the hot brush.
Pick up a section of hair and place the hot brush at the base of the hair. This works especially well with short hair or bangs. Then roll up the hot brush so that your hair wraps around the brush head once. Do not try to wrap your hair more than once. The hot brush is a brush and not a curling iron. It will get stuck in your hair if you try to roll your hair more than once.
Hold the hot brush in your hair for about 15 seconds and release it. If you did not get enough curl, repeat Step 2 and Step 3.
Brush your hair. If you have long hair, try using the hot brush as you would a standard hairbrush. If your hair is tangled, then comb out your fussy mane first. Then, glide the brush through your hair, being sure to curl the brush in as you reach the tips. You will get some wave.
Spray with hair spray. A flexible hair spray is best because it will allow your curls to move.
