The 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is getting some big changes in the mane department courtesy of celebrity hair stylist Anthony Turner. According to the hair pro, this year’s tresses will look more natural than ever on the Angels and supermodels.
Turner shared his inspiration for this year’s hair moment saying that with the return of the iconic fashion show to New York City, he wanted the girls to look a little more downtown and real by embracing their natural texture and length. And the theme of this year’s styling? “We’re celebrating individuality — we don’t want the girls to look like a generic army of robots. We’re celebrating each girl for who she is.”
To get the downtown cool look for yourself, start by applying a volumizing mousse through damp hair. Turner recommends to start with a small amount of mousse, “because you can always go back in and add more if the hair feels like it doesn’t have enough grip once we start blow drying.”
Then, add a small amount of serum-oil to the hair, applying from the mid-length through the ends of the hair to boost shine and break up the ends, so the hair looked natural.
Next, blow dry your strands with the InfinitiPro by Conair 3Q Electronic Brushless Motor Hair Dryer. No brushes necessary, according to Turner. “We’re not using any brushes — we’re just tossing around the hair with our hands to help the hair look somewhat separated, which emphasizes the natural look we want to achieve.” Once dry, curl your locks with an Infiniti Pro by Conair 2-in-1 Black Titanium Styler, wrapping 1-inch sections of hair around the exterior of the iron, working from back to front with care that there is an even amount of curls all the way through. Another pro tip: start each curl a few inches down from the roots so the top of the hair remains smooth.
Next, take the interior plates of the same styler to further smooth down any flyaways at the top of the hair and bevel the front sections away from the face. Let the hair cool and rake it through with a comb — et voila! Hair that looks natural, relaxed and cool.
