We’ve all been there: We get our hair professionally blown out only to fall terribly short when we try to do it ourselves at home. Seriously, you’re not alone. But just because you haven’t nailed the salon-made look from the comfort of your own bathroom quite yet doesn’t mean you never will. In fact, today might just be your lucky day! Sarah Potempa, celebrity stylist and the brains and beauty behind the Beachwaver—you know, the tool that gives all the Victoria’s Secret Angels their sultry waves during the fashion show—has launched a new tool for ultimate #hairgoals.

Allow us to introduce you to the Beachwaver Co. Coast Pro Ceramic and Titanium Professional Styling Irons. Just in time for summer, these styling irons make gorgeous, voluminous hair possible from anywhere there’s an outlet. The ceramic plate version, for all hair types, protects hair and glides smoothly. The titanium plate version evenly distributes heat, resulting in even faster styling and maximum frizz reduction, adding shine for coarse, curly and thick hair. What’s cool and different about this iron is that the attachments are shaped like a round brush for that smooth, blowout-style finish that you thought was only possible if you made an appointment with your favorite stylist.

So, no time to get a blowout? Or maybe you just don’t want to spring the cash. Either way, now you don’t have to. Simply click over to Beachwaver.Com and for $169-$189 you’ll have the magical tool that will make your favorite style possible every day of the week. 

Now that you have the tool to get the look, make sure to stock your vanity with the right products to help bring it all to life. Below we share three tried and true products that you can’t go wrong with.

3 Products to Boost Your At-Home Blowout

Amika The Wizard Primer

$24; loveamika.com

Any time you apply heat to your hair, it’s important to prime your damp strands first. The same way excess heat can wreak havoc on your skin, it can for your hair too. And since you’re going for a sleek and smooth blowout, the last thing you want is to fry your strands. Luckily for you, protecting your hair is as simple as spritzing it with this primer by Amika. Created to not only cut down on blow dry time, but also to protect against thermal damage, help detangle, nourish, smooth, soften and add serious shine to your strands, by now you might be wondering why you haven’t bought it sooner.

Marula Pure Beauty Oil 5-in-1 Volumizing Spray

$29; marula.com

If you constantly find that your hair needs a bit more lift at the roots, this 5-in-1 volumizing spray is just what you’ve been searching for. With a patented dual-volume nozzle, a single click will be able to create immediate volume at the roots and down to your ends for a thicker, natural-looking mane that’s full of shine. Use it on damp or dry hair for the instant boost you’ve been craving.

Blow outs only look as good as they last, so before you go reaching for a can of hair spray for a shellac-like finish, start your DIY look with this blowout balm from R+Co.
