The Beachwaver is my go-to tool for an effortless look
With all the rush lately, I have wanted to shorten my time getting ready so I can put more time into developing our future. This is why I wanted to share how the Beachwaver cut my hair routine in half. I prefer to curl my hair but it is fairly thick so it can take a while. I had been wanting to get a new curling iron since mine was getting older so Taz got me a Beachwaver for Christmas. He is so good with stuff like that (I think having six sisters has helped).
I got the 1.25 inch since I like the looser flowing look rather than tight corkscrew curls. There is a button with arrows going two different ways so you can decide whether to curl away or towards your face. I typically curl away from my face or alternate directions to give a more natural look. There are also fast and slow settings on the side. I would definitely recommend starting slow! I tried fast at first and almost burned myself. Begin on the slow setting and then transition to fast in order to avoid as much injury as possible. Also, so you can get the hang of it.
I thought I would share what I do with this styling tool in a mini tutorial. To get started, take a chunk of hair and clip it in the barrel away from your face. Leave the ends out to achieve that ideal beach wave. Push the button to curl away from your face and hold. On the official website for the Beachwaver, they say to wait 3 seconds but I would say anywhere between 5-8 seconds works the best for me since my hair is thick. Adjust timing depending on what kind of hair you have. Once, you have waited long enough then it is time to release.
I am a fan of brushed out curls. After I style everything and it has cooled, I spray a little bit of hairspray throughout my hair and comb through with my hands or go over it lightly with a brush. This may sound like a lot but it goes quickly and cuts my time in half. Majority of the time, I can do this entire process with one hand. I attached links to my curling iron along with the 1 inch iron if you want a tighter look.
Let me know if this helped and what tools you like to use the most. Also, here is the link to another wand I use. I have been thinking of creating videos for things like this so give me your thoughts if that would interest you!
Thanks for all the support!
