It’s that time of year again. The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will be airing on Dec. 5 on CBS and you’ll be able to watch all of your beauty and fitness goals walking down the famous runway.
As the most watched fashion show in the world, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has earned its wings—er, should we say rights to having a few signatures up their sleeves. From the extravagant and larger-than-life angel wings models strut down the runways to the kisses blown into the camera, and of course, let’s not forget the waves that have become known as the lingerie brand’s signature blowout.
The Beachwaver Co., the official hair partner of this year’s show, pulls off the task of creating beautiful, glamorous waves in a cinch. Want to get try the look at home? Check out the step-by-step process from the founder of The Beachwaver, celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa.
Hair Step-by-Step by Celebrity Hair Stylist Sarah Potempa for The Beachwaver Co.
- Prep hair with a volumizing mousse and blow dry up with the Beachwaver Co. Pro Dryer. Loosely blow dry hair to create the look of gorgeously flipped hair with beautiful volume. Bring all hair to the front and then allow it to fall and follow your natural hair part. Start by sectioning hair from the bottom up using The Beachwaver Co. Darby Clips.
- Using The Beachwaver Co. Limited Edition White BEACHWAVER S1 Rotating Curling Iron, clamp near the ends of your hair, leaving about 1” out at the ends. Then, press the arrow away from your face. The curling iron does all the work for you by rotating in both directions. You control the temperature, the speed and the rotation, so it works on all hair types and textures. Continue to curl up in large 2” sections as you move your way up. Repeat on the other side.
- Lightly spray a flexible hairspray on your fingertips and gently pass them through the ends of the hair to separate the curls for instant beach waves. Finish the look by smoothing flyaways with a styling crème on the hair line and on the ends of the hair.
Tip: If you have curly or frizzy hair, try the Beachwaver Co. Mini Touch Up Iron (which was also used on some of the girls backstage the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show).
