We’re excited about putting the spotlight on this new tool that is becoming a big hit for those of us wanting the perfect beach wave. Turn your straight I-Link, Kera-Link, or Tape-In hair extensions into perfectly textured waves and keep your wavy extensions looking like the first day you got them. So what’s this magical new tool called? The Beachwaver. Created by celebrity hairstylist, Sarah Potempa, this styling too is favored by stars such as Heidi Klum and Mindy Kaling. Before you go rushing out the door to get one, here are all the details you’ll need to know about this wave-making tool:
-The barrel is extra long, making it possible to curl really long hair.
-The rod automatically rotates in two directions (left and right). Just clamp your hair to the barrel and press the left button or the right button to move it in the direction of your choice. It stops as soon as you let go of the buttons. This saves you the time and effort of manually wrapping your hair toward or away from your face. It also creates evenly sized and evenly spaced curls.
-It does take some getting used to but once you’ve got it down, it can cut your styling time in half.
-The temperature control goes up to 450 degrees (though we don’t recommend using that kind of heat on hair extensions as it could fry the ends.)
-Once you’ve unclamped the hair from the rod, wait for your hair to cool then finger-comb it for loose, natural waves.
The only down side to it is the cost—$199.00—but for some of you it may be worth it! You can check out The Beachwaver in action on YouTube: http://bit.ly/1zJLoXl.
