Get Perfect Beach Waves! Sarah Potempa & Birchbox

Today I participated in my first Google+ Hangout, and much like a Twitter Party, there are guest bloggers, brand ambassadors and usually a celebrity stylist/artist.  The huge difference comes with the video aspect, which is a lot of fun.  Today's Hangout was held by Birchbox (A quick explanation of Birchbox will be noted at the bottom) featuring celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa and her Beachwaver curling iron, a rotating, adjustable temperature iron.

Not only did I walk away with some new tips and tricks, but there was a ton if interesting information as well! I don't know about you, but I always thought the more lather you had in your hair, the cleaner it would be.  But, did you know that shampoo is for your scalp, not your hair itself?  I sure didn't.  I really wish I was able to show you the video, however, it seems to have disappeared to a black screen with voices.  If you'd like to check it out, please click HERE to see the Beachwaver in action!

After checking out the video, I want a Beachwaver more than ever!!  However, it is a Pretty Pricey Product (PPP) at $199.00.  But after checking other reviews, it definitely seems worth the price.  I WILL be ordering mine soon.  For those of you that are already Birchbox babes you can get 15% OFF in the Birchbox shop, of all Sarah's products, including the Beachwaver, But ONLY FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS!  Just use code SARAHPOTEMPA15 at checkout. (Until 2/20/14)
