Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

I was hoping for easier, faster, bouncier curls...I did not get that. It took longer to curl my hair than with a regular curling iron and the curls fell within 30 minutes. I was extremely disappointed. I returned it.

          Where has this been all my life? I love love love this!! This is hands down the best curling iron I have ever owned. It is so easy to use. Creates smooth, perfect spirals. And it took me about 15 mins to curl my entire head. It's pricey, but to me it's worth every penny. Highly recommend!

          great concept but the piece that holds your hair in is not long enough. this just doesn't work for me. i have the best luck with caruso steam rollers...so easy and takes 5-10 min (while putting on makeup) to have perfectly wavy and curly hair that lasts all day!

          I think this is very simple to use. The curl holds. I have long, fine hair. I haven't gotten it perfect yet but I would definitely recommend it especially to anyone who is good at curling their hair.

          Curls fall fast and rips your hair out

          By HairCrazed

          from Mechanicsburg, PA

          Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

          If you have long hair like me, do NOT get this product. The curls fall out in just a few short hours and my hair always gets stuck and ripped out beneath the clamp. I would highly recommend the CHI rotating iron over this one in a heartbeat. Those curls hold a lot better and longer.

          Great Option

          Comments about Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver S1 Curling Iron:

          I think this is a fabulous option for someone who isn't great with hair. I've tried a lot of different tools. I found that with a curling wand I always burn myself and the curl just doesn't hold that long. With a regular curling iron I couldn't figure out how to get curls without a crimp line. But this curler answered all my curing problems. It's easy to use, heats up quickly and gives really consistent curls that last all day.

              A:

              Great question! We recommend the Beachwaver S1 from shoulder length hair or longer. This iron is also great for all hair types. For shorter hair (chin length or longer), we love using the Beachwaver S.75. This iron is great for fine to thick hair. Take a look at this comparison chart: http://images.ulta.com/is/image/Ulta/beachwaver-s-series-barrel-sizes. The Beachwaver is super easy to use because it takes the guesswork out of curling your hair! It's simple, you part your hair into left and right sections and curl as such. With the clamp facing in, start with the left side of your face, and press the left arrow to curl left-away from the face. For the right side of your face, press the right arrow and curl right-away from your face. We hopes this helps and you love your Beachwaver!

              Hello! Great questions! The Beachwaver S1 would definitely give you more defined beachy waves. The Beachwaver S1.25 will give you that more relaxed beachy wave. Take a look at these comparison images to see the difference between a 1" barrel and a 1.25" barrel: http://images.ulta.com/is/image/Ulta/beachwaver-barrel-size-styles. If your hair is should length or longer, the S1.25 would be the way to go!

          • Q:

            I am interested in purchasing the Beachwaver, but what's the difference between the models? I have thick hair, just past my shoulder blades. I have seen there's 1.25, s1.25, then the ones that are $199. Thanks.

          • Q:

            I have very thick hair that falls a bit below my shoulders. My problem has always been finding a curling iron that holds the curls. After a couple hours, my hair seems to fall flat because it's so heavy, unless I use an entire can of hairspray. Would the s1 be the best size or would the s1.25 hold a better curl?

              A:

              Since your hair has a hard time holding a curl, we would recommend using the Beachwaver® S1 or Beachwaver® Pro. The great thing about the Beachwaver, is that you only need to hold the iron in your hair for 3-4 seconds. We recommend not touching your curls until they are completely cooled. Once cooled, you can run your fingers through or one of our favorite things to do is spray a flexible hold hairspray onto a nylon boar bristle brush and gently brush through your hair. This actually distributes the hairspray throughout your hair without making it crunchy or weighed down.

          • Q:

            Hello!
            My hair is pretty thick (no layers) blunt bob about jaw/mid neck length. I'm not the best at curling my hair so i figured i would give it a shot. Should i go with the S 1" or the .75" I'm afraid the .75" is going to give my tighter curls, and I'm just looking for beach waves. I'm sure i could go with the .75 but at a lower temp. But I'm also looking for one that can go with different hair styles. I'm always between collar bone and jaw bone length with my hair.

              Great questions! For the style you are going for we think the Beachwaver® S1 would be a great option for you! If your hair is closer to chin length, we recommend switching the speed to slow and gently tap the arrow away from your face.

          • Q:

            I just ordered the s1 and I am super excited. Although I am worried that I may have bought the wrong size. I have a little longer the shoulder length hair that is pretty thin. I am looking for more of a voluminous curl/wave rather than a twisty ringlet type curl. Would the s1 be the desired size for me?

              The Beachwaver® S1 is perfect for hair that is shoulder length or longer! This barrel size will you give you the perfect relaxed beachy waves. A pro tip to make the waves softer and not as tight is to spray some flexible hold hairspary directly onto a nylon boar bristle brush and gently brush through your hair. Your waves will resemble the middle picture: http://images.ulta.com/is/image/Ulta/beachwaver-barrel-size-styles
