Hair: Victoria’s Secret Runway Look

For years, I’ve been trying to recreate the sexy, big waves that we all envy when watching the Angels walk down runway. Unfortunately, it always ends up looking like I’ve-just-woken-up-after-a-big-night hair and I end up straightening it. So boring. Luckily, I found the article on how to achieve the VS look.

Step 1: Blow-dry hair using a round brush.
Step 2: Curl large sections of hair with a 2-inch curling iron and clip into pin curls to set the style (as seen above). Spritz each section of hair with hairspray (try L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray, $13.99) before curling for hold.

Step 3: Once hair is cool, let down the pin curls and brush out the curls to soften them. And ta-da! Beautiful, gorgeous, Victoria’s Secret hair!

The real secret to this hair: extensions! Almost all of the girls got extensions if not only to add length but also to add volume. They made all the difference. And to make them look extra natural (for this less-than-perfect, sexy hair), try this trick that they used backstage: Spray the root area of the extensions with a darker-colored hairspray (try costume hairspray or Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder, $39, in a darker shade).
