Photo shoot after photo shoot I watch hair and make up artists (MUA’s) creating the beach waved look. The secret to creating the beach wave is curling pieces of your hair in both left to right and right to left directions. Now I have attempted to try this several times at home, but when I try to curl pieces going to the left, it comes out jacked. Twisting my wrist both ways was too difficult for me.
So when I was contacted to demo the Beachwaver Pro curling iron, I was so excited to try it out. How cool would it be to create the messy beach wave type of curl, by myself, with a rotating curling iron!
While on lunch one day I had my MUA friend, Jamyrlyn Mallory, curl one side of my hair while I curled the other. Why? I wanted to see if I could tell the difference from me curling it myself verses the professional. Not to mention I had photographers Ben Sandall and Mark Stone snap my before and after pictures – perks of working on set in a studio. The end result was great, but it only proved that I needed help. The after photo I am holding post it notes so you could tell which side I curled myself. The left side was done by a professional and the right side was curled with the Beachwaver Pro curling iron.
At $199, the Beachwaver Pro is pricey, but you are paying to create a profession look by yourself, whenever you want. I have really enjoyed using this curling iron. I am into having my hair wavy and a bit messier, and the Beachwaver Pro helps create that look. I am unable to create this look myself with any other curling iron on the market. Sarah Pomtempa is the genuis behind the best curling iron for dummies I have ever worked with. Here’s how it works in detail via you-tube, which you need to watch to see it work it’s magic!
Jamyrlyn also insisted spraying Kevin Murphy sea salt spray on my hair. This currently Ja’s favorite salt spray, so I thought it was worth sharing.
