          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!!!

                  This really works to create beautiful, loose beach curls! Product DID seem a bit pricey, but it was worth it! I have super curly hair. Have to be careful when curling to make sure the roots don't get frizzy. Loosen curls first with a blow out & then use the beach waver.

                    This curling iron is amazing. I have very fine, stick straight hair. I used it on air-dried hair this morning (went to bed with it wet) which usually means I can do nothing with my hair the next day. This curling iron is super easy to use, and my clurls have lasted all day with a little hair spray. It also cut my curling time in half. Pleasantly surprised with this product.

                      I always wanted curly hair, but I was never able to do it myself. I had basically just given up and just got used to my straight hair. I saw this Beachwaver in a magazine and thought I'd give it a try.

                      I am amazed at how easy it was and that it actually curls my hair! My curls stay all night and I actually enjoy doing my hair!

                      It's a game changer!

                          I bought this product on a friends suggestion, otherwise I would've never spent the money. It is totally worth it. The curls are almost better the second day. It's hard to get used to at first, but it quickly becomes easy. I have very thick and long hair that took me at least an hour or two to curl my whole head of hair. This takes me thirty minutes. It is absolutely amazing. I look forward to doing my hair now! Plus, with the self twirling rod, my arms don't hurt afterward anymore!

                                      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.
