    Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

    My hair has never looked better after using the Beachwaver! I researched this product a lot before taking the plunge, and I was skeptical. I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations. It heats very quickly, it's super easy to use, and my straight hair has never held curl or wave better. I get endless compliments after I've used it. And I have to admit, it's fun to use! I look forward to fixing my hair with the Beachwaver!

        This product does what it claims. I have hair that just touches my shoulders. I think this would definitely work better on longer hair. It takes some getting used to, at least for me , but I'm just not good at styling my hair. This makes it so much easier

          Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

          I have naturally curly hair, however I have lost my curls due to over-bleaching and dying my hair. I bought this because I couldn't get a decent wave using my straightening iron and I didn't curling wands or rod because its just hard/annoying to rotate them so I decided to give this one a try. I think its great because it rotates automatically and it heats up really fast!!! I like it so far, it gave me curls that I used to have naturally before I damaged my hair :)

            LOVE! This is so amazingly easy to use! I read several reviews on the lower S1 model of the Beachwaver where reviewers said they took it back to exchange for the Professional model, and I'm glad I did! I have thick, wavy to curly hair and it takes forever to curl! This definitely cuts down on a ton of time! :)

                I debated for quite awhile on this purchase because of the investment, but it is so totally worth it! I always get compliments on my hair when I use this. Very easy to use & effective. I have thin stick straight hair and this works better than any curling device I've ever used.

                Best tool I've ever purchased! I'm a college student and it was still worth every penny!! My hair used to take 30-40 mins to curl and now it take 12-15 every time. So easy to use, and everyone always complements me. 10/10 worth it.

                        Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

                        This was one of the best beauty purchases I have made! I am incredibly unskilled at doing my hair, and this took me one time to master.

                        No joke, the first time I used it, two of my friends assumed I had just come from the salon. Also, it only took me 15 minutes to finish my look. Granted, I have very fine hair, so there isn't a lot to curl.

                        The key to holding my waves is great products, so be sure to use it in tandem with you favorites. I like to use Kevin Murphy's beach spray, then finish with a good hair spray.

                        it took me a long time to decide on a new curling iron. I chose this one because of the reviews and it didn't disappoint! I have short hair but currently have a full head on extensions and thought it would be difficult with the different lengths in my hair but it was actually very easy to work around. I would recommend this to everyone!!!

                                  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.
