Kevin Murphy WAVE.CLIP ($4 each)

HerStyler Beach Curler ($44)
The secret to the foolproof waves this curler delivers lies in the two-in-one barrel—one is 32 mm and the other 19—and the unique spiral design that curls hair wherever it falls (so it delivers both tighter and looser texture). The result: mismatched beach waves you’ll never guess came from a hot tool.
