Most Helpful Positive Review Best Hair Tool Ever
I have gone through MANY curlers, hot rollers, Bonnet dryers w/rollers...all time consuming and not guaranteed to even keep the style after I walk out the door. For the first time ever, my curls / waves stay intact all day long and only takes me 10 - 15 minutes in the morning.
As an example, I have attached a photo of my hair at the end of a work day (11hrs after styling). Windblown from walking around the city, but the curls are still there. No pre-product was used. Only a finishing spray.
Most Helpful Critical Review Pro vs S1
Alright y'all here it is. So, I bought both the Pro and the S1 Beach Waver. All I could find online was comparison charts for the specs, not an actual usage comparison- so I bought both and decided to do it myself. Let me start with my hair type- I have long (approx mid back) thick hair, and my individual hairs are thick. My hair is color treated (I have natural Dk brown hair) now I have a dark version of "bronde". I use foaming mouse and it's a 10 in my hair (and maybe a case of hair spray a week- the higher the hair the closer to God!). So now to the irons. I started with the Pro I was so excited, I set it to the high heat (450) and went to town. I was able to curl my hair in 10 mins flat! But the negative was half way through the iron got heavy and my hair kept getting caught in the clip. I thought maybe it was me, but the more I used it I noticed it wasn't me it was where the clip would rotate that would cause it to get caught. Now to the results of the Pro- I had beach waves in 10 mins super easy. My hair usually holds a curl for approx 3 days, with the Pro I held a curl for the day and needed to retouch the top each morning.
Now to the S1- again, I set it to the highest setting (410 on this one) and went to town. Again, curls in 10 mins flat! But this time, I noticed how much lighter the iron was. Also, my hair didn't get caught in the clip since this one has a home button that resets the clip. My curls lasted approx 2 days with this, but due to the nature of the "beach wave" I did touch up each morning (just the top layer).
So, I decided to keep the S1 and return the Pro. Primarily due to the weight of the Pro and my hair getting caught in the clip.

as a 27 yo who has literally never been able to successfully curl her own hair and has tried every possible tool on the market, this is an absolute life changer. worked like a dream, didn't have to think about how my curls needed to go, several hours later and my curls are still fully intact. highly recommend!
love love love!
shalei from new jersey
definitely the best curling iron I've used by a long shot. much better then having the big clamp like a lot of others do. 1000% worth the money!
Wanted to love this but I didn't
Vs from Ny
I saved my points and decided to try this as I've heard great things. I wanted to love it but I didn't … I have thick hair … I used heat protectant , hairspray, you named it I tried it I was so upset that it didn't work for me …
Doesn't hold curls
Syd from Cape may, NJ
This curling iron was a really cool idea and super convenient especially for short hair but if you have short thin hair it does not wanna curl and the clamp will not hold small sections down therefore you have to do huge sections that don't hold
From a person who's hair doesn't hold a curl
Sarahdise from Miami, FL
My hair does not hold a curl. But I don't know what kind of sorcery is in this curling iron- BUT IT CURLS LIKE A DREAM. I used the 370 heat setting and by god, my hair curled and stayed! I slept on it overnight and I still had great curls in the morning. The rotating barrel is such a great invention. It's a little difficult to get used to, but worth the learning curve.
there's everything else.... then there's my beachwaver
Amanda from PA
just got my beachwaver last week and I have used it almost everyday I love it so much. the first time I used it I honestly thought about returning it, but by the second time using it I had mastered the technique and my hair looked fabulous! I'm talking Ariel from The Little Mermaid fabulous. I compare all of my tools to my beachwaver to see if they're even worth keeping. seriously... I love my beachwaver.
But the regular unless you have LONG hair
Beach waved from Ny
The only plus of the Pro over the regular Beachwaver is the longer barrel. Otherwise, the regular is way better. I hate the buttons on this one. There's no "home" and I love the just side to side button to curl on the other better. The curl button on the Pro also isn't raised so you can't tell when your finger is on it. Just save $70 and buy the other! I have a 1" regular and the 1.25" Pro for reference
Veteran of this tool highly recommends
Haley from Indianapolis
I had my tool for 5 years and I loved every minute of using it. As a left handed awkward person, this made hair curling so easy and effortless. It seems like I tried every item on the market until this bad boy. The investment is 100% worth it. I do believe the company offers a warranty on a new item too. I will be repurchasing this once I can get my hands on one.
Absolutely Love!! Best waves I've ever had!
Blondebarbie from Cleveland, Ohio
This curling iron makes the best waves I've ever had every single time I use it. I have an amazing wand but this is better! It makes even consistent waves that lay beautifully. They are effortlessly to make & it's so easy to use. I've never had any waves seriously look more beautiful at home.
Quit turning on after 2 uses!! 😔
bma008 from Pittsburg PA
I got this as a Christmas gift from my husband and absolutely loved it!! I only used it 2 time before it stopped turning on completely. So sad this has happened and for the price I am just shocked. What a disappointment..
I was never able to curl before this
Kayleigh from United States
I am now the proud owner of 2 beachwavers. This is my second one and I am IN LOVE. Going from NEVER being able go curl before to having this and its done in 20 minutes is mind blowing. I am so happy to have found Beachwaver, it has been a complete life changing product for me. I've always wanted curls and only got them when I went to the salon. I'm so proud of this iron and so thankful to Beachwaver for having such an amazing product. If your on the fence, do it I can promise you that you will not regret it.

I was never able to curl my hair right before this
Grace M. from United States
I am so in love with the beachwaver! I have never been able to properly curl my hair until I got this iron. It actually used to really upset me and now, this tool being so incredibly easy to use, I can curl my hair in no time. #changedmylif
Rotating function failure
Dee from Allen, Tx
Purchased mine before Christmas and it was defective, it would not rotate. Had to send it back. Ive purchased two beachwaver s1 but it seems they only last close to a year then the rotating function gives out. I purchased this model thinking it may be more durable but it set the record for the shortest lasting! I gave it two stars just because before plugging it this tool looked very well made from the outside.
I'll never go back to a normal wand
Grace from United States
First off, I have very sleek, straight hair that literally doesn't hold a curl. It took some practice to figure out how loose or tight I wanted my curls/waves, but the beachwaver pro absolutely nailed it every single time. I didn't burn myself once. My curls even stayed in overnight- no hairspray. Expensive, yes, but definitely worth it. I do wish I got the larger barrel because I do have thick hair, but I'm still very happy with the 1"
Curls won't hold.
Kacy P. from United States
I do like that it does the work for you but unfortunately the curls doesn't hold. I've even tried pinning the curls up, letting them cool and then taking it down.
Not hot enough
Shannon B. from United States
Even with setting solutions, etc.the curls were not hot enough to hold and fell quickly.
Not for professional use .
heather l. from United States
Great my hair doesn't curl but this thing has it curled and they look so good when it's done! I love it!!
Corrina D. from United States
Overall great product. Easy to use, quick process, and hair looks great. The only down fall for me, is the curls don't hold as well as I would like. I've always had hard to curl hair though so don't let that deter you.
Babydoll from Chicago
Do not buy an imitation but the real thing. I have thick hair that goes to the middle of my back. I was able to curl my hair in around 15 minutes ...so easy to use. I love the fact that you can set the direction and it holds. Heats up quickly too. So amazing !!
Burnt smell, sensitive buttons, broke on THIRD use
Amber from AL
My husband got me this as a gift so I really tried to give it a chance. I was so happy on the THIRD time using it that it just stopped working so I could return it for a full refund. I plugged it in, it would beep once and then nothing. Tried multiple outlets, but no, it was just done for. No tears from me though. The thing FRIED my hair. I haven't had fried, burnt-smelling hair since high school (when I didn't know how to take care of my hair). But if you curled for less than 10 seconds (which is normal for my hair with any other curling iron), the curl is very weak. More than that and BOOM. Burn smell. The auto-curl feature seems like a good idea in theory, but isn't worth it. The buttons are so sensitive that you definitely need to leave several inches between it and your scalp because you will inevitably hit the button accidentally with your hand and make it spin upwards more. And the part that clips your hair is so small that you can only do small sections of hair at a time, which seems absurd considering the barrel is so big. Just a terrible product -- please don't waste your money.
I don't think it's worth the extra money for a pro
Sam from United States
To start off I love beach waver, would never curl my hair with anything else. However, I own the regular beach waver in the .75 and 1.25 and the pro for my 1.0 and I notice no real difference unless you need the hotter settings which I do not. I like that the regular beach wavers have the home button, this one is hard to set down when I am using it without burning my dresser. Wish I could return the pro and just get the normal 1.0.
Love this curling iron!
Anatasia from United States
I have purchased 3 different size curling irons from Beachwaver and I love them! My Pro 1 is awesome. I have long silky hair that goes down to my hips. I have never had a curling iron that has curled my hair and kept the curls lasting all day long without hairspray! With other curling irons even with hairspray, my hair straightens out the Pro 1 is awesome. This curling iron is a must ladies! I looked around at other brands and by far Beachwaver is the best of them all. The customer service they provide is exceptional. I will continue to purchase their products. Thank you so much Beachwaver!
The best curler out there.
HalJacksxo from US
It works as advertised and makes curling your hair so much easier and SO much quicker. It's easy to use and pretty much fool proof. Of course it's pricey, but it really is worth it if you struggle curling your hair like I did before this.
110% worth the money and hype!!
Maddie from Birmingham, AL
I was given this Beachwaver as a gift around 6 years ago and to this day it's still going strong! I have used it as frequently as every day at times, although I haven't used it as much in the past few months due to being home a lot with the pandemic, but I used it again just the other day. It has lasted me a long time.
I have super long, heavily highlighted blonde hair and the length of this wand is great for long hair. I prefer this over traditional curing irons because with curling irons I always end up feeling like only the ends of my hair got curled. I also like how the Beachwaver heats up super FAST and transfers the heat to my hair quickly.
I actually use this like a big wand and prefer not to use the clamp and direction buttons. I just wrap my hair by hand. I brush the curls out after and they last all day and then I can even go without washing my hair for days (most I've gone is 5... don't judge me haha) and still have wave in my hair. It's amazing!
When the one I have dies I'll buy another one. It's really worth the money if you will use it.
