      Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

      I have naturally wavy hair, but along with that comes some frizz and a not so uniformed look at times. I may have part of my hair behaving and part of it not, especially in the winter when it's dry. This thing is awesome. It's so easy to use. It gives you the perfect tousled wave. Right now, my hair is growing out from a too short hair cut but I plan to put this up and use it again once I get some length. HIGHLY recommend this for women with long hair.

        Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

        I have a LOT of long, straight, fine hair. (No one realizes how thick it is until they touch it because it's so fine). It usually takes 30-45 minutes to curl my entire head of hair due to how much of it there is, and then the curl maybe lasts a few hours. The hairstylist doing the product demo in Ulta curled my entire head of hair in 10-15 minutes. I went out that night, slept on it, woke up and lightly combed it and it lasted an entire two days. Love this iron!

        Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

        I debated on buying this product for about a month due to not only its price, but the fact that I have insanely, naturally thick, curly hair. I have always longed for the beautiful beach waves that this product promises. I was very skeptical to throw out $200 on something I wasn't sure would even work on my hair type. I have spent countless hours trying different curlers to curl my hair, but all in the past have failed. It seemed hopeless that I would never be able to curl my hair like they do for me in the salon. I spent weeks searching for every possible review from anyone who had my hair type to see if this was worth my time and money. So I sucked it up, and bought it under the conditions that if it did not work to my high expectation, I would return it immediately and get a refund. For all the girls out there with thick, curly, and sometimes stubborn hair, IT IS WORTH IT. I am obsessed with this thing! I use it almost every day, just to use it. Considering my hair is also quite long, it only takes me about 30 minutes AT THE MOST to curl my whole head to perfection. I only use heat protectant on my ends, and I get the most gorgeous curls. I don't have to worry about skipping out on washing my hair prior to curling it. I have used this product after my hair has completely air dried and have seen amazing results. I'm not lying when I say that this tool is like a miracle. If I had to give some feedback, the smell of the tool the first few uses is very strong. But this setback is minimized by how great the product works. I just wanted to give a review for the girls like me who saw no hope when it came to curling their hair. Trust me, you won't be sorry!

            I could never straighten my hair with regular curling irons or with my flat iron. This is a dream come true for me! I can finally curl my hair on my own, and it is quick and easy. Great results!

              Love this! I have been coveting this iron for so long, and finally received money for my birthday and had $50 in Ulta points, which made the purchase easier. I told myself if I didn't love it, i'd take it back. It works amazing! My hair has never held a curl real well, and the Beachwaver does the trick! I can get glam curls, and looser curls for a beachy look. It will definitely be my new go to tool!!

                  I know people love the the BeachWaver & I do think it is an excellent quality product…just not for me. My hair is shoulder length & layered. My hair would not stay in the clamp & when it did, it pulled (actually tore my hair!) and did not create waves…just a mess. Think that it must be great for someone who has really long hair or extensions….but for those of us who don't, not a product worth keeping. Bought it today & will be going back tomorrow..I'll stick to my inexpensive 1 1/4 barrel iron when I want my hair curled.

                      Where has this been all my life?! It takes me 10 minutes to get my whole head curled. With a traditional curling iron it would take me anywhere from 30-50 minutes depending on how much curl I was trying for. I also love that you can achieve different looks depending on how long you leave each section in the curler. I was hesitant to spend this much on a curling iron, but it was most definitely worth it. Thank you!!

                        I was hesitant to spend this much money on something that curls your hair just eliminating the need to twirl it yourself. I promised I'd return it if I didn't like it. I loved it! It does a perfect curl, the clamp is not long like other curling irons where it ends up going thru my other curls therefore making them separate and frizz out before I'm ready to toss them. My favorite part is it has a longer barrel than my regular curling iron which works great with my long hair. I hope this product will last me a long time.

                          Nothing I have ever used is even close to as good as this. Even my hairstylist commented on how beautiful the curls were. Sooo pricey, but worth every single penny.
