Score Bombshell Waves Like a Victoria’s Secret Angel


The pink curtain will rise on TV screens everywhere tonight as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, and more take flight for the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. As much as we adore the colorful confections and wondrous wings, we always envy the Angels’ signature waves. We snagged tips from lead stylist Akki Shirakawa to score “hair with movement” from the comfort of home—sans extensions.

Shiriakawa started by applying the Victoria’s Secret Hair Mega-Lift Mousse to damp strands before roughly drying the hair with ghd’s Air Hairdryer. He then used a combination of the brand’s Curve Soft Curl Iron and the Curve Classic Curl Iron to curl the entire head, pinning them up to set. Once cooled, the pin curls were taken down, loosened with the fingers, and blasted with the blow dryer to create the effortless waves. The style was polished off with a mist of the Victoria’s Secret Hair Ultimate Hairspray, before a touch of the brand’s High-Shine Serum was added at the ends for enhanced luster and luscious locks.
