We would all love to be able to create beachy waves at home -- blowouts are expensive! -- but it's a lot harder than most hair experts let on. Some recommend curling wands, others say nighttime curlers. Some advise using sea salt spray, some prefer other variations of holding spray. What's a girl to do with umpteen tutorials and product advice articles floating around on the Internet? How do we know what will actually work?

We're here to be the final word on what you should invest in product-wise and to show you exactly how you can achieve relaxed curls in the comfort of your own home.



The ultimate beachy waves are those of the Victoria's Secret Angels, who we recently saw walk the runway in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Not only did we attend the show to see the models in all their glory, but we spent the afternoon before the show backstage with the Angels and their celebrity hair stylist Sarah Potempa.

Potempa is a hair styling genius, to say the least. She invented the Beachwaver, a self-curling tool that creates the perfect waves every time. It's light and easy to use -- you'll never burn yourself again -- and we watched her use it on the Angels and herself, so we can personally attest to how well it works.

Check out the video below to see for yourself!
