The Beachwaver is an amazing tool that can create a variety of different looks. With just one tool, you can make beachy waves, gorgeous curls, or vintage waves. For a looser, beachy wave, leave about 2" of your hair out when you clamp it. For beautiful curls, clamp the hair at the very end. For vintage waves, hold the Beachwaver horizontally and as you release the curl, pin the curl up with silver clips until they cool.
