Title: HAIRSTYLING APPARATUS EQUIPPED WITH A SYSTEM FOR LOCKING A WATER TANK AND A WICK IN A STEAM PRODUCTION POSITION
Abstract:
The invention concerns a hairstyling apparatus (1) for curling hair, comprising a mandrel (3), a tile (4) hinged to the apparatus to form a clamp with the mandrel so as to move the tile between a position in which it is separated from the mandrel and a position in which it presses against the mandrel. The apparatus comprises a heating element, a tank (10) of liquid, a wick (13) secured to the tank and communicating with same so as to be imbibed with liquid, and guide means arranged between the tank and the mandrel so as to allow the tank and the wick to move between a passive position and an active position in which the wick is in contact with the heating element (21) in order to create steam. The hairstyling apparatus (1) comprises a locking/unlocking system (22) configured to keep the tank and the wick in the active position.
