This Hair Styling Tool Can Give You Perfect Bouncy Waves for Less Than $30
Plus, it has more than 6,000 reviews on Amazon so you can hear from users just why they love it so much.
If you grew up in or around the 2000s, you probably remember when basically everyone was ‘scrunching’ their hair in an effort to add volume and texture. It wasn't always a hit—there’s no denying that hair often ended up looking more like a wet poodle than mermaid locks. Thankfully, hairstyles have evolved since the mid-2000s—and so have the techniques and hot tools, making it easier than ever to achieve the effortlessly wavy hair.
Case in point: The Bed Head Wave Artist Deep Waver Generation II (Buy It, $29, amazon.com), which, according to 6,000 Amazon reviewers, is the best way to get the blissfully messy waves. The handheld styler clamps your strands between two ceramic plates in a unique ‘U’ shape to create deep waves in just seconds. Post-clamp, your hair will not only be perfectly crimped but also frizz-free and super shiny thanks to the tourmaline ceramic plate. The five-inch plates are also wide, so you’ll be able to conquer your entire head of hair in just a matter of minutes.
As with most hot tools, the final look is totally dependent on the technique you use. If you put small one-inch sections into the styler, you’ll come out with piecey, beachy waves. Or you can also channel the glamour of Old Hollywood with more uniform, sculpted waves created by clamping large sections of hair.
Plus, the waver is easy to customize to your hair's thickness and texture because it offers a handful of different heat settings to match a variety of hair types—including fine and coarse hair. The highest heat setting is 400 degrees Faharenheit, which is bound to lock in your style for days. (These picks for the best dry shampoo can also help with that)
Traveling abroad—or just to the gym—is also super easy with Bed Head’s Deep Waver. The built-in clamps lock the plates together, so you can easily toss the tool in your bag without a second thought. There’s also a built-in dual voltage system, making the styler safe to use internationally (though, you should still verify your destination's voltage). Not to mention, the automatic shut-off function means you won’t have to worry about whether you turned it off before leaving the house.
All of the above considered, it’s no surprise Amazon shoppers adore this waver, giving it nearly 4,000 perfect five-star ratings. Happy users not only called it “witchcraft” and “easy to use”, but one reviewer even claimed it was “literally the best hair product I have ever bought". We love a good vote of confidence! Plus, there are more than 300 reviews that specifically mention this tool’s ability to give you the perfect, elusive beachy waves.
If you’re looking for a quick way to style your hair this fall, or simply want a way to get enviable mermaid waves for your Halloween costume this year, you’ve officially met your match—and with Amazon’s super speedy shipping for Prime members (or anyone who signs up for a free trial), it can be at your door in just two days.
