Victorias Secret hairstyles

We all know the signature VS Angels hairstyle is, and that is the sexy waves. The hair expert, Orlando Pita transformed the models to  VS models as he gave them the VS signature hairstyle of tousled and glossy hair. Side part and textured waves added to the seductiveness and sexiness to the intricately Swarovski embedded pieces. Orlando describe the models’ hairstyle as the epitome of sexy, just rolled out of bed hair style. He explained that the bed head is a little matte and less shiny. This means that he has to make it effortless and undone while maintaining the strands’ silkiness. This has to look effortless as though the models’ hair were indeed straight from the bed.

The GHD was the first ever official hair tools sponsor of the VS annual fashion show. VS Angels’ tresses had made use of the GHD Tri-Zone Styler flat iron which has new patented technology delivering faster and shiny results.
