wekend hair victoria's secret beach waves


by celebrity hairstylist and inventor of The Beachwaver, Sarah Potempa

“Beachy waves are made best with curling irons because it is a wave that needs to have a pattern that is loose and long. A curling iron creates the longest lasting version of this style. But curling irons aren’t always as user-friendly as we’d like.”

“I wanted to create a curling iron that everyone could use –
a simple-to use tool that would help fashion savvy women save time and effort, allowing them to achieve professional results in just minutes and at an affordable price point.” – Sarah

“The Beachwaver Pro is a rotating ceramic curling iron that goes in both directions. Normally you would have to use two hands, twist the hair around the iron and hold the hair close to the barrel. The Beachwaver rotates for you, and the clamp holds the hair in place so your fingers don’t have to go anywhere near the hot barrel. It makes it simple to master luscious locks.”

In order to get the sexy “lived-in” Victoria’s Secret wave, it’s important to have structure when you’re curling. Start by bringing all of the hair forward, then divide it into clean, even sections using the Darby Clips. Then select the temperature that is right for your hair and start curling from the bottom of your hair and working your way up to the top. This will ensure a consistent wave throughout.

how to works

The Beachwaver Pro rotates in both directions to give you the flawless Victoria’s Secret wave. The secret is that the curls always have to be going away from your face. If you turn the iron the same way on both sides of your hair, the curls won’t frame the face.
So, with the Beachwaver Pro, simply select the side you’re curling on and press go. For example, if you’re curling the left side of your head you select “L,” press “go” and curl. The Beachwaver really is the secret because it does the work for you. You’re guaranteed to have Victoria’s Secret model hair because the Beachwaver is what we used backstage on every model at the show.
The final brush out is so important for the Victoria’s Secret wave. After you’ve curled all of your hair let the curls cool then spray a flexible hair spray onto the Mini On Set Styling Brush. Brush all the curls out then run your fingers through them to create the perfect relaxed Victoria’s Secret wave.

* Based on your desired curl, there are different ways to use a curling iron. As a general rule, styles can be done differently based on how much hair you use in each curl. If you section more hair you’ll get a bigger wave, while less hair means a tighter curl.
* And it’s easy to make your work last beyond a day! Starting on fresh washed hair is best so the look lasts 2-3 days. Use a volume shampoo if you have fine hair or shine shampoo for thick/frizzy hair {it’s important to know your hair type}! Prepping hair with mousse will also help maintain the curls. A root lifter or mousse is a good prep before blow drying and a heat protectant spray before curling!
