    Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

    I didn't want to spend so much on a curling iron, but it was worth it. I have really long hair and this is the only curling iron that is quick and holds a curl throughout the day and into the next for me. I'm not disappointed. My hair looks awesome even in 80% humidity weather we have been having.

      NOT for those with thick hair or lots of hair

      By Dani

      from Chicago

      Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

      I sooooo wanted to like this but it's more trouble than it's worth. I have a lot of hair and it's very thick, falling about 3 inches below my shoulders. The concept of this product is genius but the execution is lacking for those who have hair like mine. The clamp that holds the hair as you wind it up the barrel is much too small; I could only do very small sections at a time and it gave me tighter curls as a result, not the loose, flowing curls I wanted. This product might work for those with thin hair but not for thick-haired gals like myself.

          I am sure that this device it's a good quality piece but it was sold to me telling me that it would work with my shoulder length hair. In addition to not working, the little bit that turned on the barrel fell out almost immediately. I would really like to try the smaller barrel

              Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

              This is a great tool for people who aren't skilled with a curling iron or wand, but there is still a learning curve. I wish this came with more directions than what is printed on the box - I can never seem to get the + and - buttons for the best setting to work and there's no instructions for it! I have thin medium length hair and this takes me 25 mins - I don't ever see how people say they can curl their own head in 15 mins with this. However, it does give nice results when you get the hang of it.

                  The Beachwaver S1 was designed for all hair types and textures, although is works best on hair that is shoulder length or longer. We also recommend the Beachwaver S.75 for shorter hair. If you have a hard time keeping a curl, a pro tip is to apply mousse and make sure the product is completely dry before curling with the Beachwaver.

                How long does this iron take to heat up? I've been using a wand and glove to curl my hair for years and upon first use with this thing, I was not at all impressed. It barely created waves, much less curls. I'm wondering if maybe I didn't let it heat up long enough.

                I recently had one of my hands/wrists amputated and was wondering if this is a two handed product. I use to curl my hair daily & always had to use two hands to wrap my hair around the curling iron as I held the iron with my other hand. Will this product work well with using only one hand to operate it?

                  A:

                  All of the Beachwavers can be used with just one hand! The Beachwaver will create easy, effortless curls with the touch of a button. You no longer need to wrap the hair around the barrel. We suggest keeping the Beachwaver S1 set to the slow speed until you feel more comfortable switching it to the fast speed. We also suggest also using the Darby Clips (Item #: 2300966) to keep the rest of your hair out of the way. This will help you focus on smaller sections of your hair to help create a beautiful beachwaved look!

                  A:

                  Hold the Beachwaver S1 upright in front of you with the clamp facing inwards. Take a 1" section of hair and place the ends into the clamp. The amount of ends left out will determine which type of curl you're looking for. Once the hair is secured into the clamp, push the arrow button facing away from your face.

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  Both tools feature adjustable heat settings, with the CHI ARC Automatic Rotating Curler's range being 180 degrees F (ideal for fine hair) to 410 degrees F (ideal for coarse, thick hair), and the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver S1's (Item #: 2260197) being 290-410 F. If you have ultra fine hair, the ARC is a better option for you, since you can adjust it to a low heat setting.

                  Both tools feature a ceramic barrel designed to help infuse hair with moisture and shine and to reduce frizz.

                  The ARC features a 1" barrel that is 6.5" long, while the S1 features a 1" barrel that is 5.5" long.

                  Both tools feature a digital temperature display.

                  The Beachwaver S1 features automatic shut-off. The iron will automatically shut down after 30 minutes of no use.

                  Both tools feature left-right buttons as well as a reset/home button, which will return the barrel to starting position.

                  The Beachwaver S1 features high-low speed settings.

                  We hope this extra info helps! We recommend reading the product ratings and reviews for both tools at Ulta.com! :-)
