The Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver® Pro

Invented by celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa, this game-changing curling iron does all the heavy lifting when it comes to styling your hair. The 1 inch-wide steel rod rotates on its own, saving you the trouble of manually wrapping your curls and also ensuring that your ringlets are evenly spaced. At the press of a button, it gently winds each lock of hair and stops as soon as you let go. The rod can be switched to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise, so your hair always twists away from your face. No more tired arms or lopsided waves and curls.

LOVE IT! But heed my warnings...
Purchased

THE GOOD: I just got this thing two days ago and have used it twice already-- it's great. It took me about 25 minutes to curl my hair all the way around (I have long hair and a lot of it) the first time, and right around 20 min the second time. I'm thinking after a few more tries I can knock it down to around 15? Which is pretty awesome in my opinion!

THE BAD: The wand is enormous. I couldn't tell by the photo how big this thing was going to be. Even my husband's eyes bulged when he saw it. I'm a small girl with small hands so this was a little hard for me to handle, but I'm getting better and I think I will eventually do fine with it. Also, the instructions say to always clamp the hair with the clamp facing inward toward you, and I disagree with that. If you do it that way on the left side you get clamp marks on your hair! But it works fine that way on the right. So on the LEFT- clamp outward, and on the RIGHT- clamp inward. Remember that :) And lastly be careful not to accidentally click the "GO" button before you're ready. It will start spinning on you and mess you all up. Someone else mentioned their hair getting stuck but I had no issues with that at all. I just made sure the little "kickstand" thing was pushed down so it wasn't in the way at all.

THE UGLY: As I mentioned, the wand is huge. It's also very hot. I had it set at 350 which was the default temp and also what it said was necessary for my type of hair. When I was curling the back of my head, my hand got tired and I unintentionally dropped my wrist to relax. The wand touched the back of my next for a split second and left me a nasty 2 inch burn mark. So, beware of this!

All that said, I love this thing and am so happy I got it. I definitely recommend it!

Amazing!!
Purchased

I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend 200 bucks on a curling iron,but am I glad I did!! This is seriously the best thing ever. Heats up fast and makes curling your hair quick and easy. I have two kids and haven't curled my hair in forever because I never have the time. It took me 10 minutes to curl my whole head and the curls are beautiful!!! Definitely buy this product!

So easy!
Purchased

I love this curling iron so much! I always want the beach wave look but it took so long wrapping each section around the curling iron and was always burning myself in the process. This takes half the time and no more burns!

Favorite iron ever!

Never thought I would spend this much on a curling iron but so worth it. You get curls immediately and they LAST! With fine hair, curls drop within 30 minutes of curling but somehow with this iron, they last for days. I will curl my hair, sleep that night in a ponytail and in the morning shake my head and I still have a headful of curls! I don't even have to touch it up. I love my Beachwaver. I have 2 of them (1" smaller curls and 1.25" for bigger loose curls) and LOVE them

WAY easier than a regular curling iron

I have tried Every new tool to get the spiral / beach wave curls. This is the easiest tool I have used and it actually works really well. 3 options of how to angle the iron depending on type of curl you want. Slow and fast curl option, ledt and right curl buttons and home button to place the clip right where it needs to be. I was skepical but after the first time I love it. Heats up quick and the can be used with a spray to set the curls. Love it.

Now this is a game changer. For some reason I can get my hair to do the wave with a regular curling iron. This product is extremely easy to use and you get perfect results. Also, it cuts the time In half with doing your hair.

I love, Love, LOVE this curling iron. It takes a bit of practice, but after that, it's super easy to use and my waves last all day. I've already tossed my old irons.

Only tool I use
Purchased

I bought my beach waver 2 years ago, and have never had to use anything else. So versatile. I can do tight curls, beach waves, crimps, just about anything. Its so easy to use, especially for someone as uncoordinated as I am! Perfect look every single time.
