        This curling iron is worth every cent. I love the wavy look without looking overdone and this delivers! Very easy to use - there's a YouTube video if you need a visual. My hair even looked great the next day! Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

          Hesitated to spend the money. However I had a 20% off one item coupon so I pulled the trigger. So glad I did. The product works just as the advertisements say. Truly makes beautiful beachy waves. Took away one star for the price.

            I bought this on a whim and I'm sure glad I did. It works really well on my straight super fine shoulder length hair. I can do my entire head in less than 10 minutes and I love the way it looks. I found that if I use spray gel on my hair first my waves will last all day.

            perfect beach waves

            By Saspants

            from Houston, TX

            Comments about Sarah Potempa Beachwaver:

            I purchased mine a little more than a year ago and absolutely love it, it creates the perfect beach wave. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to replace should anything happen with my current Beachwaver.

            My only complaint, and this totally does not reflect on the quality of the product or its performance, is that I wish it were more travel friendly. The tool is long and somewhat cumbersome to pack, as well as I have been unable to find a heat protective case big enough to hold it. A smaller version would be great! The new, less expensive version is just as big as the original, which is now called the "Pro", the only difference is the buttons.

            Definitely a great tool to change up your style.

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

                        Is it difficult to curl the back of your head with this (do you turn it upside down to do the back)? I have shoulder length hair. Thanks

                          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.
