Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

I have very long, thick, straight hair which is usually awesome, but when I do choose to curl it, it's a chore to say the least. This product made it so much easier and faster to curl my hair! It looked great too, like I had it professionally curled. I absolutely love this curling iron and would highly recommend it to anybody who wants professional results in a short time frame. It will honestly pay for itself after a few uses because I won't feel like I have to go to the salon to get my hair done for a special event.

      The clip didn't hold enough hair and at the moment of pressing the bottom to curl the hair is out of the clip and really difficult!

          I have to straighten my hair before using this (I have naturally curly/wavy hair) but the nice waves it creates are sooo much better! Worth every penny. Its very easy to use and heats up quickly. I can't believe I've lived so long without it.

                  The Beachwaver is 100% the investment. It works well & gives you perfectly curled hair that actually lasts. Plus, it comes with a one-year warranty, not that I expect to use it. So glad my friend talked me into buying one!

                  Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

                  Ok honestly...this is the raddest beauty tool I've ever owned. Best money I've ever spent. I've always been good at doing makeup, but the hair thing always got me. I have naturally wavy hair that just is always a disaster. I got a hair wand that just was a catastrophe so I decided to try this. I have no patience for the time it takes to blow dry and straighten my hair, let alone add curl. I used this and my hair was gorgeous in literally five minutes. This tool is brainless. Right out of the box, I turned it on and used it and I looked like a rockstar. Freaking amazing product. All I hope is that this thing doesn't break. I love it so much and it was so expensive, if it busts I will die.

                        This beachwaver gives my daughter with stick straight long hair that could never hold a curl beautiful long beach wave curls! The Conair caught hair and wasn't easy to use so we returned it. This is easy and makes great curls even for stick straight hair!If you want big wide curls it is worth every penny!

                          Thank you for inventing this incredible tool!!! I know there are knockoffs, but you are the original!!! As a stylist, I really appreciate your skill and knowledge so I want to give you props. You are truly an inspiration to us girls in the salon. Stay true to yourself and be strong!!!

                          Anyway, I love the Beachwaver because I use it in my salon on my clients. It really saves my wrist and gives my clients gorgeous waves. I can do an easy roller set quickly and uniformly!!

                              The Beachwaver can be used on frizzy and wavy hair. It is not necessary to straighten or blow out prior to using.

                              It is not difficult to curl the back of your head with the Beachwaver Pro! Split your hair in half behind your head and bring all of the hair forward. Now you have all of your hair on the left and right side and can curl as you normally would.

                              For shorter, shoulder length hair use the Beachwaver S1. It is lighter, with a shorter barrel, perfect for short hair!

                              Beachwaver works best on hair that is shoulder length or longer but can be used on all hair types and textures including fine hair. Plus it features adjustable temperature settings that range from 310-450 F, so you can adjust to a lower setting for fine hair.
