Backstage Pass: How Do Victoria's Secret Angels Prep for a Shoot?
We got an exclusive glimpse at what really happens backstage with the Victoria's Secret beauty team
The hairstylists don't use a ton of productsI imagined the room would be engulfed in a cloud of hairspray, but that wasn't the case at all. "The hair should be full and sexy, but also soft and touchable," said Victoria's Secret hairstylist Yusef Williams. "There's nothing sexy about hard hair." The main product they used on all of the models is one of my favorites: dry shampoo. All the hairstylists used Victoria's Secret So Sexy Style Clean & Go Dry Shampoo, $14, to create volume. "It swells the hair," explained Victoria's Secret hairstylist Nicole Blais. "Then all you have to do is curl it with a medium-to-large barrel curling iron."
While the result was gorgeous as always, it was fascinating to discover that Heatherton has fine hair like my own. (OK, feeling a little better about myself.) She wasn't wearing extensions, so in order to get as much lift as possible Yusef set the top sections into pin curls until the hair cooled.
