    Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

    I love this curler! I was never able to use regular curlers because I have a disability on my left arm it's hard for me to use that arm to roll the curler up. But this curler pretty much does it all for you! I'm so happy I could finally curl my own hair and not spend $50 every time to get it curled!

      Was afraid to use this because it looked so difficult. I thought my very long hair would get twisted and pulled out. NOT the case at all!!!!!! I have zero coordination and I was able to use it right out of the box. Love how fast it curls my thick hair and the curls last for days!!!

        Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

        I had my eye on this product for well over a year and finally made the purchase after wanting to upgrade some of my hair care products. I have short hair, it hits just above my shoulders with a blunt cut, most of my layers are grown out. This is amazing. Perfect size to get that undone messy beach look on short hair. Other wands made my curls too defined, and other curling irons just didn't work with my short length. SO easy once you have a practice run. I get compliments on my hair like never before. Heats up and cools down quickly. I have been recommending this to EVERYONE.

          By Rocky

          from Paso Robles

          Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

          I wanted this so bad, but in the end it left my ends totally fried, even with the use of heat protectants. My curls also wouldn't hold at all. I feel bad that I have to return it, I hate returning things like this, but it was so expensive for something that just didn't pull through for me.

          I even an extra star because it is easy to use, and maybe it would work for a different hair type. definitely not worth the price though. I curl my hair faster with a regular curling iron.

              the curls were a little too much and they would fall out right away unless I used a ton of hairspray. the hairspray ruined the look then because they looked too hard and not wavy. I returned it no problem

              I couldn't wait to use this, but I just can't get the hang of it. I watched so many tutorials on this and it's supposed to be super easy. It snagged my hair and I panicked that it was going to burn off. I can't get it to twirl in the right direction and it's frustrating. I feel like I'm the only one that can't use it. I can wrap my hair around it, but I have so many barrel curling irons already that are cheap and do the same thing.

              First one I bought stated error the very first time I plugged it in, super disappointing for such an expensive curling iron. I went back to Ulta and had them plug the new one in to verify it actually works and they swapped it out. Just used it for the first time and I love it! Made it easy for me to get a consistent curl

              Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

              I absolutely adore this curling iron. The most recognized feature about this iron is the automatic wind up. It saves me so much time in the morning. I have very long hair, and my curling routine went from 35 minutes to roughly 15! My husband was shocked when I was ready much earlier then expected the first time I used this.

              Another thing I love about this iron is it seems to destribute heat evenly. It's amazing! My curls hold ALL DAY LONG... and into day 3 my hair still has beautiful waves in it!!! That's never happened with any other curler I've ever owned.

              The only thing about this iron is you do have to start from your ends and roll up, which in my opinion can be more damaging to your hair. However, if you use a good heat protector and keep it on a lower setting, it seems like damage is minimal.

              I've also used this curling iron as a wand and it works amazing that way too! Overall, I'm just so in love with this curling iron and am so glad I purchased it!

              If you're looking for a beauty routine that will save you time, and for an iron that truely holds your curls, I 100 percent recommend!

              • Q:

                Hello!
                My hair is pretty thick (no layers) blunt bob about jaw/mid neck length. I'm not the best at curling my hair so i figured i would give it a shot. Should i go with the S 1" or the .75" I'm afraid the .75" is going to give my tighter curls, and I'm just looking for beach waves. I'm sure i could go with the .75 but at a lower temp. But I'm also looking for one that can go with different hair styles. I'm always between collar bone and jaw bone length with my hair.

                  Great questions! For the style you are going for we think the Beachwaver® S1 would be a great option for you! If your hair is closer to chin length, we recommend switching the speed to slow and gently tap the arrow away from your face.

              • Q:

                I just ordered the s1 and I am super excited. Although I am worried that I may have bought the wrong size. I have a little longer the shoulder length hair that is pretty thin. I am looking for more of a voluminous curl/wave rather than a twisty ringlet type curl. Would the s1 be the desired size for me?

                  A:

                  The Beachwaver® S1 is perfect for hair that is shoulder length or longer! This barrel size will you give you the perfect relaxed beachy waves. A pro tip to make the waves softer and not as tight is to spray some flexible hold hairspary directly onto a nylon boar bristle brush and gently brush through your hair. Your waves will resemble the middle picture: http://images.ulta.com/is/image/Ulta/beachwaver-barrel-size-styles

                  A:

                  Hello! We always recommend applying a heat protectant to your hair prior to any heat styling. The Pro would be a great choice for your longer, thick hair. Since the barrel is an inch longer than our S Series, there is more space for the hair to rotate around the barrel.
