When it comes to summer hair, beach waves are always the go-to style of the season. Textured and tousled tresses that make you look like you just spent a day by the ocean never goes out of style. As a matter of fact, it's a hair style we love seeing year round because of how carefree and pretty it is. Sarah Potempa's Beachwaver Pro makes our beloved summer hair style so much easier to recreate no matter what season it is. If you've struggled trying to master beach waves with traditional curling irons or wands without much success, then it might be time to try our go-to styling tool of the summer.
What you'll need:
- Sarah Potempa's Beachwaver Pro
- Your favorite shine pomade (We love Brazilian Blowout's Sculpt and Define Polish for this particular style)
There are many reasons to love the Beachwaver Pro. For one, it kind of does the work for you by rotating your hair into a perfect curl every time. Left and right rotations allow you to curl your hair with ease. All you do is clamp your hair into place and push the "go" button to start the rotation. (Of course, you'll want to work away from your beautiful face.) The ergonomic handle makes it easy to hold, regardless of what side you're working on. The ceramic rod infuses your hair with shine and protects it against damage for healthy-looking, beautiful curls.
Whether you have fine or thick hair, the Beachwaver Pro heats up between 310-450 degrees, so you can customize the temperture to fit your needs. Once you've finished curling your hair, you'll want to leave them alone and let them cool down. Touching your hair before your curls have cooled can undo them or make them uneven. Once they've cooled, use your shine pomade to smooth down any flyaways and give your curls some hold. You can lightly scrunch some pomade into your curls to give them bounce and definition.
Once you've added your shine pomade, it's time to shake your curls out to give them that tousled and textured beach look!
It's that simple, ladies! Your final step? Go out on the town and flaunt those sexy beach waves!
