Sure, a curling iron might not have the instant appeal a glittery makeup palette does, but let's face it: Loose waves are in, and our sources tell us they are going to remain in in 2013.
Which is why Sarah Potempa's Beachwaver makes an awesome gift.
The reason it stands out is the rotating barrel, which works with the push of a button, and goes left or right so you can do both sides of your head. This technology makes it insanely easy to get perfect waves or tighter curls, even if you're a total curling iron klutz. Plus, there's a digital temperature control (no more fried hair) and an extra long barrel (great for longer hair).
In a nutshell, it's the perfect present for anyone who loves the beachy wave look but has trouble DIYing it. And if you want help using the iron, you can watch how-to videos with Sarah Potempa herself here.
