If you’ve spent any time on hair TikTok, you’re likely familiar with the Beachwaver, the viral curling iron that rotates and purportedly cuts your styling time in half. That’s how I first heard about it…and then I just kept scrolling. That’s not to say I wasn’t interested—I was. But I had spent my entire adult life trying to curl my own hair and failing miserably. Why would this tool be different?
I wish I was kidding—or, at the very least, exaggerating—when I say I was incapable of using a curling iron. I had tried countless kinds of hot tools of varying barrel sizes, brands, and price points, and watched every beauty tutorial available online, and simply could not do it. Each miserable trial run ended sadder than the last; one day, while basking in the scent of my own burnt hair, I simply decided it was time to move on and pursue other dreams. Like getting a DryBar membership.
For years I depended on professional blowouts to grant me my beloved beach waves, extending each the look as long as I could until I had to wash my hair. This obviously wan’t sustainable, however, so I eventually gave up on having my hair curled altogether. That is, until I met the Beachwaver.
