To prep, I sprayed my hair with Moroccanoil Protect Defense Heat Protectant. Then I split it into two sections, put the top half in a bun, and curled the hair from the bottom to the top of the head. is not.)
Frankly, it took me some time to find a technique that worked for me — and you’ll probably want to do your own experimentation to find what works best for you — but here’s what I did What ended up being the most successful: First, I held the curling iron upright and clamped a 1-inch section of hair to the tool. Then I pressed an arrow pointing away from my face and I could see the barrel rotate in that direction and the hair curl up. Once the barrel was close to the scalp, I held the tool in place for 10 seconds before releasing the clamp.(This method is actually in line with the brand’s recommendations and is available on his web site at Beachwaver.) You can learn more styling tips on the site.)
Some important findings: First, holding the barrel upright (rather than parallel to the floor or pointing down) made it easier for the hair to wrap around the wand. This eliminates the need to manipulate and contort the arm as the wand moves a little closer to the scalp. Second, releasing the button at least two inches away from my scalp helped prevent burns. I accidentally touched my scalp while trying to get the iron as close as possible.
The end result was a tight curl, but I brushed it into a looser, looser style. I sealed the look with fine hairspray and applied Revolution Haircare Plex Step 8 4D Restore. I smoothed the edges with oil.
my honest thoughts
I absolutely loved the voluminous, loose curls I achieved with the Beachwaver. was to master the rotation settings for over there From the face, not from the face. ), but after I had some of my hair curled, using the tool felt natural.
As you can see from the before and after photos, the Beachwaver gave my air-dried hair the coveted body and movement. The waves I made were not only beautiful, they were also long-lasting. Seriously, this look lasted all day without falling out.
The Beachwaver costs $149, which is a little more expensive, but about the same as other top curling irons on the market, such as T3, GHD, and Bio Iconic. It’s definitely more expensive than the tool, but you’re also paying for the patented technology. It doesn’t sound like an old record, but it does the hard work for you.
