By Campus Wave ambassador, Skyler Brooke Villanueva.
The Beachwaver Co. is an amazing brand with great hair care products such as curling irons, shampoos and conditioners, and styling products. But this brand isn’t only about their products. The Beachwaver Co. has an incredibly fun program for college students called the Campus Wave Ambassador Program. I have been representing the University of California, Irvine (UCI) as part of this program for a year and a half. This program has allowed me to gain knowledge on hair care products, to educate others on the importance of hair care, and more! Here are 5 reasons why I love being a Campus Wave Ambassador and Team Leader.
1. Ambassadors get to test out products each month.
Each campus member is sent new products to test out every month, allowing us to try the products on our own and share our honest opinions of different Beachwaver items. Some of my favorite products are the Beachwaver S1.25 Iron and the Second Chance Dry Shampoo! Once I started using these products, I knew I could never go without them.
2. I get properly educated on each Beachwaver product.
Campus ambassadors are invited to special online webinars with Beachwaver creator, Sarah Potempa, each month where she talks about different products, their ingredients and why they are healthy/important for your hair, and how to properly use the different irons. We are able to ask Sarah questions during these webinars about the products as well. This has allowed me to pass on my knowledge to others when I am asked about Beachwaver products. It has also educated me on what ingredients I should be looking for in my hair care products.
3. I can create fun Beachwaver collaborations at my university!
At my university, the University of California, Irvine (UCI), I have been able to create collaborative events with my club and the Beachwaver brand! We invited Sarah Potempa to come speak at our virtual event in an intimate setting. She educated my club members on the different Beachwaver products, told us about the importance of haircare, and also answered questions about how she created the brand and what it’s like working as a celebrity hairstylist.
4. I get to meet new people.
As a Campus Wave Team Leader, I get to work closely with a group of 10 other ambassadors. I love being able to share my knowledge of the Beachwaver brand with other ambassadors. We share ideas, create posts together, compete in fun competitions together, and more! Having met a group of other college students who love hair care as much as I do has helped to make this experience even more memorable. I’m going to miss my group at the end of the year!
5. This program has given me so many opportunities.
Being a Beachwaver Campus Ambassador and Team Leader, I have been given many great opportunities. Having been the top rep, I was able to donate to the charity of my choice with the help of the Beachwaver brand. I was also able to take over the Beachwaver’s Instagram stories to talk about products, as well as create blog posts for their website. This program has provided me with leadership and social media experience, all while being extremely fun and engaging!
