This magical device is the lazy girl’s answer for getting red-carpet-caliber beachy waves that aren’t labor intensive. Plug in the curling iron and set the temperature dial between 310 and 450 degrees; then select the “left” or “right” button (depending on which side of your noggin you’re working on). Next, clip a section of hair by the ends with the clamp facing you and press “go” to make the barrel automatically rotate upward, creating perfectly formed spirals in just 10 seconds. Repeat the process all over your head before raking your hands through the coils for a polished yet undone look. Sarah Potempa Beachwaver rotating curling iron, $169 (normally $199), at sarahpotempa.com. Use code “TIMEOUT15” to receive this discount through June 30.
