I know they aren’t the clearest photos but holy crap can you believe I got to watch the Victorias Secret Fashion Show?! It feels like a dream that I was actually there! It was sooo amazing and all the performances were UNREAL. And of course the models and their hair, bodies, face, tans, EVERYTHING were perfection. They are like a different species. Going backstage beforehand was so fun but also SO nerve-racking. I was there to cover hair with ghd so before I took any photos or talked to any models I made sure I got the full hair how to and had all the info I needed to do a spot on recreation hair tutorial! Which I have posted below – it is literally exactly what they did on the models. Of course depending on length, color, etc it will look a tad different person to person but the technique, products, and hot tools are the exact same! But then I did go talk to some models and YOU GUYS …. it was so scary haha! I went to go talk to Alessandra first and I had a few questions from the comments you guys left on my IG that I was going to ask her and suddenly words were coming out of my mouth (literal word vomit!) and I didn’t even know what I was saying? I still am not sure what I asked hahah. But then I gave myself a .2 second pep talk and snapped out of my ridiculous fan girl mode. It is just crazy because they really are all so pretty.
The hot tools they used are literally the key to the look – one of the wands made by ghd is shaped like an oval and it is set to 365 degrees and stays at the temperature the entire time so it gives you super even curls and the best bouncy waves you will ever see. They also used the ghd classic wand which is a 1 inch iron. It also has the same tri zone technology which helps hold the curls in place all day, they didn’t even use an ounce of hairspray on any of the girls.
I am also so excited because ghd is offering all of you guys 20% off your entire order from now through 12/25 with code ghdBFB ! Which is huge because they are 100%, hands down, the best hot tools you will ever use. I promise you! I have used ghd for a lonnng time and since I got a new straightener in London I sent my old one to my mom and she has called me twice to thank me because she is obsessed – and she has a crazy mane so for her to be THAT excited about a straightener is a big deal, haha. So watch the video below and see the how to and you guys can see how to use the hot tools!
PS want to know a fat secret? ALL the models wore extensions! They had a full table of clip in extensions with the girls names on their pack – so yes Lily, Candice, Alessandra, Adriana – they were all wearing extensions 🙂 and some of them weren’t even allowed to be photographed until they had them put in! Just a little dirty secret I learned. Here are a few other secrets the girls told me I wish I had more time to chat with them!
Doutzen: (she had a baby a few months ago) her best advice for getting back in shape post baby is 1. be in shape BEFORE the baby and live a healthy lifestyle beforehand. 2. she said she does ballet and boxing. 3. genetics. – lol and that was the answer for a lot of questions so don’t feel too bad.
Adriana: her advice for keeping a work out plan while traveling is to bring a jump rope – she said she jumps rope in all of her hotel rooms. if she isn’t traveling she likes to box. she also said she lives a balanced life – she meditates, eats very healthy, and works out daily.
Alessandra: when I asked her how she styles her hair at home she said she doesn’t.. she gets her hair done so much for shoots that she just lets it air dry and goes with it.
*Also most of the girls do laser hair removal and that is how they keep their skin smooth and bump free.
