Listen up summer brides and bridesmaids, because The Beachwaver has officially launched a Swarovski Crystal bridal edition, making it the perfect excuse to splurge on the wildly popular rotating curling wand that delivers those perfect beach waves.
Just in time for summer wedding season, celebrity hairstylist and Beachwaver founder Sarah Potempa decided it was time for brides and bridesmaids to get the ultra-special Beachwaver treatment. "I've heard so many stories of brides bringing their Beachwaver with them to everything—from their bachelorette party to their wedding day—but then I had a bride reach out because she wanted to buy Beachwavers for her bridesmaids," explains Sarah. "The idea came from hearing so many of these bridal stories and how fun it is to get ready with your group of friends."
Sarah took her favorite Pro line and emblazoned the wand with Swarovski Crystals that spelled out "Bride" and "Bridesmaid" for the hair-obsessed bridal party who wants those effortless beach waves without the need for a professional hairstylist. Sarah says the bride who inspired the new Swarovski Crystal embellished wands gushed that they were a hit with her bride tribe. "She told me that her bridesmaids still say it was the greatest gift they ever got because, not only was it so easy to get ready together, but after the wedding they used it to get ready for other events, too."
The Pro model is the original Beachwaver curler and comes in two sizes, 1-inch and 1.5-inch barrels. It retails for $199 with a $30 to $40 charge for the custom bridal option, so it can be a bit of a splurge—but totally worth it if you have a schedule chock-full of weddings and the countless events leading up to them. Sarah says the Pro line is considered the higher-end model, thanks to its 450-degree highest-heat setting (versus the highest 410-degree setting on the S-Series curlers) and it is an inch longer than the rest of the Beachwaver curling tools with its 6.5-inch ceramic rod.
"I love the Pro line for a bride because if she's wearing extensions the longer barrel is ideal," she explains. Sarah says it's not just for those who want to wear their hair down, either. The Beachwaver is versatile enough to create countless styles that incorporate curls, waves, and more. "I feel like the bridal hair trends right now are all about polished waves, half-up hairstyles, and braids," she says. "I did a friend's wedding where we used extensions on all the bridesmaids and did waves and braids, but made each style different and it was so pretty.
One girl had a half-up crown braid, another had fishtail—it's all about carefree, beautiful, and fun styles, which you can get with waves."
If you're splurging on the gift of good hair for you and your bride tribe, the Beachwaver will also be available with more customization options. "We can do their initials, their name, or even something more elaborate like a bride's new last name, all in Swarovski Crystals," says Sarah.
