Since we've already discovered the secret to a perfectly curled coiff in an earlier how-to, we were a little skeptical on how this contraption could justify its hefty price tag. While the whirling gadget did turn our global editor's stick-straight strands into beautiful beach waves, upon watching the video and seeing the look of sheer terror on Connie's face as she attaches her hair to the 390 degree wand, you'll get why weren't all lining up to test it out. Watch the video to see it in action, then decide for yourself if you're going to give this rotating iron a whirl.
Sarah Potempa Beachwaver Rotating Curling Iron, $189, available at QVC.
