Here at Influenster, we're all about bringing you the latest new beauty products and trends. But, we also want to share our open and honest reviews of products because ultimately, we're just like you! We love to play with the prettiest new eyeshadow palette or test run a bizarre new hair tool. This week, three of our Influenster editors gave the Beachwaver Pro Curling Iron a go. Read all about our experience with the quirky hair tool below.
What it does: With the press of a button, this curling iron self-rotates to curl your hair and give perfect beachy waves in half the time. (It's how Victoria's Secret models got that perfect bend at the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show!)
Why we tried it: We all have different hair types, so we wanted to put this to the test on three different hair types. Our Content Director, Bethany, tested it out on fine, straight hair, while Site Editor Caitlin gave it a whirl on wavy, super thick hair. And Social Media Editor Carson tried it on thick, short hair.
"When I first saw the Beachwaver I was thrilled. Not only was this a way to save time and curling arm fatigue (see ya upper body workout) it seemed like a fool-proof way to get perfectly wavy hair. I had a little trouble with the first few curls—setting the direction was not as intuitive as I thought. That said, it really does produce gorgeous curls. They're a little tight at first so shaking them out was a must but overall I loved the look it produced. My main issue was that the Beachwaver didn't heat up as fast as I'd like. I'd definitely recommend it though."
"I've used the Beachwaver before, so I knew what to expect when testing the Pro. And it was even easier than I remembered! I love the big barrel for creating loose, beautiful curls. I have naturally wavy hair, so I see myself using this to refine my waves and tame some frizz. Plus, the alternating directions adds some depth to the curls, making them less uniform and much more natural. It can be a little daunting to use at first—the spinning rod is a little scary when your hair is wrapped up in it, but a few spirals later and it's super easy to get the hang of."
"I was definitely skeptical at first as a self-rotating hot curling wand sounds like my worst nightmare, but it was actually super easy to use and looks great! This DEFINITELY helps to cut down on curling time and my hair is holding a great curl. Would definitely recommend this to those who curl their hair frequently! "
