      Wanted beach curls, got dried out frizzed hair with use. Hair got tangled up in the clip part as well and ripped out (not in chunks just strands). Do not recommend for thick hair, the little clip doesn't hold much hair and you will be curling for hours, you can achieve the same look with a Hot Tools manual 1" curling iron alot faster and it won't dry out your hair

              This product allows your hair to hold curl like no other . It is fairly easy to use after 1-2 tries. My hair is naturally wavy and typically gets frizzy if I don't straighten it before curling. This product holds the curl and my hair does not frizz. I now own the S1 and the Beachwaver Pro because of how wonderful they work!

                This is very easy to use and makes curling your hair the fastest process ever! This wouldn't be a good first ever curling iron - you need some basic know-how, but man, once you've got the hang of it, curling is a breeze. What was once a 20-30 minute process for my long, straight hair is now about a 7 minute thing. Curls last all day long.

                    Complete waste of money. I have never curled my hair and had the curls just fall right out. I don't know if it is because it starts at the ends or what. When I curl my hair with a normal curling iron, I start close to the head (or wherever I want my curls to start). This starts at the ends. It was fun and easy but did not produce lasting curls - and my hair is already wavy!

                            This is the easiest curling iron to use!! I have used tons of different kinds and this one is awesome!! It doesn't take me long at all to curl my hair (and trust me I have very thick hair, so usually it does)! What I like about it is that you can create different kinds of curls with it. I also like that you don't have to sit there and hold your hair around the barrel. My tips for using it would be to curl it and then run your fingers/brush through it to create beautiful waves!

                                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.

                                The S1 is ideal for all hair types and textures and although it works best on hair that is shoulder length or longer, you can still achieve great results using it on shorter lengths of hair.

                                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! :-)

                                The S1 is even easier to use, since it features an arrow button and a fast/slow speed switch! It is especially ideal for newcomers to using hair styling tools, so we think it would be a great choice for you. It may take a little longer for you to fully style your hair as you learn how to use the tool, but with practice, you can absolutely get it down to 15 minutes or less!

                                Here is a comparison chart:

                                Some key differences are that the Pro reaches a higher max temperature, ideal for coarse, thick hair types. The Pro also features a longer barrel, ideal for quicker styling of longer lengths.

                              Is there any difference in the clip size on the original beach waver when compared to the S1? I'm wondering if I can put a larger section of hair on the beachwaver pro's clip than I can on the S1.

                                The clamp on both the Beachwaver Pro and Beachwaver S1 is 1" long.

                              I have a little above shoulder length hair, will this be easy to use when curling the back of my hair?

                                The Beachwaver S1 works best on hair that is shoulder length or longer, but it can be used on hair that is slightly shorter with great results!
