After the bras and the wings, the Victoria's Secret models' hair is arguably the most talked about part of the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. While there's recently been more flexibility with the way the women walking wear their hair (because, hello, sexy has a jillion different definitions), those long, loose waves are still the look that most everyone associates with the biggest televised lingerie event. And they're all thanks to one person: celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa.
Potempa is the inventor of a very cool curling iron, the Beachwaver, that's perfect for doing just that: giving your hair beachy waves. And backstage at the VS show, every stylist has the Beachwaver in hand to gussy up the massive amounts of natural hair and extensions that will hit the catwalk. So there's no one better than Potempa to teach us all how to recreate those signature curls.
While you can use a curling iron or wand for this style, the Beachwaver definitely makes it a whole lot easier. In the video below, Potempa goes through step by step exactly how she gets the Angels ready for their trip down the catwalk, so you can recreate the look at thome. Wings not included, unfortch.
