Getting glam, sexy, beachy waves at home used to be nearly impossibly before Sarah Potempa introduced her bestselling hair tool, the Beachwaver. It completely changed the game thanks to its rotating iron because at just the push of a button, the tool does all the heavy-lifting for you. Well now Potempa’s introducing two new styles into the Beachwaver family, the 1.25 and .75 inch barrel sizes. Trust us when we tell you, yes, you need both!
Regardless of your hair type or length, everyone can benefit from the two new barrel sizes because they’re a perfect way to customize your curls. One delivers a sexier look, the other more natural.
The S1.25 version is what Potempa uses to get really loose, undone waves on stars like Kaley Cuoco and Lea Michele. It works just like the original S1 Beachwaver — clamp it to the end of your hair and always rotate the barrel away from the face. (That’s the key to making the waves look so glam and sexy.)
The S.75 creates more natural waves and is ideal for those with bobs (she just styled Mandy Moore using it!). Potempa’s pro tip is to adjust the speed and use the S.75 on the slower setting if you have short hair because it helps give more control.
The Beachwaver is not only easy to use, but it guarantees a good hair day no matter what. Oh, and according to Potempa, your waves will look even better with second-day hair!
