My Thoughts:

I’ve never used a curling iron like the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver before. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it. It’s a rotating curling iron that gives you beach wavy hair. That’s right. You read it right. A rotating curling iron. The barrel rotates with a touch of a button! I was able to get wavy hair in half the amount of time it would normally take me with a regular curling iron. Another plus is the curling iron isn’t super heavy. Thank goodness!

The Beachwaver is so easy to use. You turn it on and set it to the temperature you want to use it at by pushing the “-” and “+” buttons. The temperature ranges from 310-450°F. You can tell what temperature it is at because there is a digital screen that displays the current temperature. Next, you push the “L” or “R” button to let the Beachwaver know which side you are curling. After that, you clamp a section of your hair to the curling iron and push down on the “Go” button to curl. The barrel rotates and then you let go of the “Go” button to stop the rotation. Easy huh? My favorite thing about the Beachwaver, aside from the rotating barrel, is that it makes curling the back of my hair so easy. I don’t have to worry about whether I’m curling my hair in the correct direction or not.

Aside from all the love I just spewed over the Beachwaver, I do have a couple of complaints. My first complaint is that I wish the “Go” button was placed somewhere else. When I would clamp my hair to the barrel, my finger would almost always push the “Go” button at the same time. I couldn’t help it. It was where my finger would always land when trying to use the clamp. My second complaint is that the clamp gets hot. I could feel the clamp beginning to get warm when I was about halfway done. Thank goodness I was able to finish before it got too hot to touch. Other than those complaints, I only have love for the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver.

    What a clever idea! My hair is too short for this, but I can see my daughter-in-law loving it. Thanks for the review and the pictures.

  • Julie B.

    That is one fancy curling iron. Yes, I can see how getting too hot could be a problem. But I love the rotating feature, saves on all that wrist action.

    • Audrey Dao

      i love the rotating too. it saves a lot of time and wrist pain. plus, you don’t have to guess which way to twist :)

  • Thanks for the review Audrey :D
    I ever watch that video. This rotating curling iron is a very brilliant idea! Beside the rotating barrel, the left and right button is also great! We don’t have to worry we do a mistake.
    I see, the go button is right there where our finger will land automatically. Maybe the button should be heavier, I can’t think other place for the go button.
    woa, you must be careful then, it’s not good actually. how if the clamp goes hot too fast?
    but yeah, overall, I still want this rotating curling iron..

  • layla

    wow, a rotating curler? I have naturally curly hair that I curl in order to tame them! (Does that make sense? curling already curly hair) lol.. This would really help out at the back of my head and just make the whole process so much easier!

  • Cheryl

    ooo, I’m captivated! This thing would make curling my super straight hair so much easier without having to crank my neck to do the back and my arms getting tired lol

    I wonder how it performs with a super layered/textured cut?

    • Audrey Dao

      i don’t have super layered hair, but i do have layers and it works good with my hair. it’s just a little difficult because hair is at different lengths so you have to do it multiple steps.

  • Ashley

    Sounds so cool!! I have to try it.

  • Leslie K

    Very cool. I haven’t seen one that the barrel rotates. It makes amazing curls. Love it. Thx for the review. Love it. Such beautiful curls.

  • Nathalie Pelletier

    Love your blog to bits! That curling iron would save me so much time in the morning. I have uncooked spaghetti straight hair. I usually manage to get the front looking decent, but as for the rest… I wish I was a Cirque Du Soleil contortionist (lol).

  • Phoebe

    Hi Audrey, I found your blog through theNotice. I love how you can hold the curler straight up instead of awkwardly at a downward angle since it does the curling away from your face for you with the automatic rotating action.

    • Audrey Dao

      Welcome Phoebe! i really like that too. i hate curling my hair with a regular curling iron because i’m always twisting and turning at weird angles

  • Jen T.

    This looks so cool! I’ve never seen a rotating barrel before.

  • Okay, that looks cool. I’ve burned my fingers on my barrel iron so much, but I refuse to wear those gloves because I can’t seem to manage with them. Pricey, but if my fingers were saved, worth it. Thanks for the review!

  • Mel

    I don’t really like rotating curling iron, but thanks a lot for the review, i personally prefer my karmin clipless (:
