SARAHPOTEMPA The BEACHWAVER™

Invented by celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa, this game-changing curling iron is genius enough to crown her the Thomas Edison of hot tools. Her light-bulb equivalent of a beauty breakthrough? The steel rod rotates on its own, saving you the trouble of manually wrapping your curls——and ensuring that your ringlets are evenly spaced. At the press of a button, the rotating curling iron gently winds each lock of hair around its heated ceramic rod (and stops as soon as you let go). The rod can be switched to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise—, so your curls always twist away from your face. Eureka!

Huge but works well with practice
Purchased

First of all - this wand is much larger than I expected. For a petite person I had no idea If I was going to be able to use it properly. It takes a lot of practice but it does as advertised and creates beachg waves in either direction. I wouldn't bank on this creating perfect waves for an event until you've practiced using the button and your hand position but not having to remember which way to rotate your hand is great. Also, with practice you can get other types of curls so I'm going to keep using mine and hope that this is finally a curling wand I can keep using for a long time!

I will always own this beachwaver!
Purchased

This is by far the best beauty instrument I have in my bathroom.

I use this every single day and every single day I get some sort of complement on my hair. Its so simple to use and so hard to burn yourself (and I'm a klutz).

I will never go back to a simple wand. This is worth every penny!

Amazing curls, and so easy!
Purchased

I have always worn my long hair stick straight because curling it was too difficult, and after all the work, the curls would fall out. After reading the reviews here on Birchbox, I thought the Beachwaver might be different, and boy was it ever! It was so easy to use, its really fool proof, and it left me with gorgeous curls! They did fall out a bit as the day wore on, but the lovely waves were just as beautiful. I had so many compliments on my hair, and honestly it looked just as good as when I have had my hairdresser do it for $40 a pop! Yes, it is a bit expensive, but it really is so worth it! I absolutely LOVE this curling iron!

Best curler ever!

My hair doesn't ever hold curl, but this made a huge difference. It curls up its self, which is super nice, and it never creases!! Highly recommend!

Worlds. Best. Curling Iron.

Seriously, I don't know how i lived without this curling iron. i LOVE this thing. Totally worth the expensive price tag. Friends, coworkers, random people, everyone asks how i get my hair so perfect every time. For an incompetent hair stylist like myself, this takes the guesswork out of it and ensures great results every time. Can't rave enough.

Best curling iron ever!!
Purchased

So excited that I had to share. Best curling iron ever in the entire universe. Ever. I have extremely thick hair and don't know how to curl my own hair (easily) for the life of me. I saw this and although it's more than I ever would want to spend on a curling iron, the reviews were too good to be true (and all spot on!) It literally curls your hair for you. Best purchase ever.

I love it

At first I was very hesitant to buy because of the price yet I decided based on other reviews to give it a shot and I definitely do not regret it. It is very easy to use and I can quickly do my waves without any fuss. It's a wonderful product

Love it!!
Purchased

I don't normally spend this much money on my hair tools, but saw the great reviews and decided to try it. It is worth the money! I have never been able to get nice looking curls with other curling irons, but with this one, it's so easy! Just press a button and it does the work for you! My hair looked great and it was so easy to style!

Great in theory, poor execution, cheap product

I was SO EXCITED for this product. My hair is LONG, past my mid-back, blonde, chemically treated. I read other reviews, and it too pulled some of my hair out as well, not too concerning for me though bc it didn't hurt. Curls didn't last longer than 30 min and you can only make it go left or right. Other wands you can manipulate your hair a few ways and depending on how you hold the wand depends on the type of curl that is produced. I bought the sedu 25mm wand, hands down...sedu wand is 100% better than this. I have NO IDEA where the good reviews come from..they must have super thin shoulder length hair. BUY A SEDU!!! or a NUME!

Worth every penny

Waited a long time to buy this because of the price. But worth every penny! My daughter and I have very thick hair and the curls stay in very well. Takes a little practice to learn the technique but easy to use after you play with it. Do not regret this purchase.
