The Philips - ProCare Auto Curler HPS940/00 is delivered in a plain black and has gold accents on the head. It is constructed like a hairdryer.

In order to prepare for the use of the Philips - ProCare Auto Curler HPS940/00, your hair should be free of burrs, dry and the device should be set correctly by you in advance. The tester's settings were 210° at 12 seconds.
In the beginning, you should connect the curler to the power socket. Heating up takes about 30 seconds. During this time the curler releases a chemical odor, which disappears after a short time. The control lamp flashes while the curler is heating up. When it is still, the appliance is ready for use.
Your hair strands can have a thickness of about 3 cm, so you should separate them well from the rest of your hair. You should turn the device during use so that the ceramic coil always faces your head. You can then place your strand in the intended recess and push the curler to the point where the curl should begin.
When this is done, press the pull-in button and your hair will be pulled in automatically. The pulling in is very pleasant and does not cause any pain. This process is also very quiet. You press the button until the device has completely retracted your hair and even when the beeps sound. You can only release the button when the coil makes a click sound and releases your hair. You can then simply pull out your strand.
Another plus is the anti-tangle function, which stops the device automatically and allows you to remove your strand easily and without pain.
After editing the entire head with the Philips - ProCare Auto Curler HPS940/00, the curls could be seen. They were all very even and were according to the desired settings. They also had a nice shine. The curls held for about 8 hours without hairspray.
