Today, I'm going to be showing you how to achieve lush hair, a kind of Victoria's Secret catwalk style hair. Okay, so all you're going to need to achieve this look is some mousse, so here's some, I've just popped it in the lid just to make it easier to get at, a curling wand, so I'm using a Babyliss one, but you can use a GHD or a straightener, or any kind of curling tongs that you have, and I have a kind of special backcombing brush, it's just easier to tease hair with, but you can use a comb, or just a normal hairbrush. We're going to start by popping just a little bit of mousse through the length of the hair, so just to give it a bit of grip, and then just brush it through the length of the hair, just to ensure they're all covered.
Now, I'm going to section off the hair, so just leaving the bottom half of the hair down, it just makes it easier to manage, keeps some hair out of the way. So, just around halfway through the crown, just take the remaining hair, curl it, and you can use a bobbin or just a clip, so you're just left with the bottom sections here. And here's where your backcombing comes in.
Now, depending on what kind of hair you have, if you have thicker hair you might not need to backcomb so much, but if you have thinner hair, to get that real 'wow' bouncy curl, you're going to need to backcomb it a bit just to add a bit of volume. Now, for curling, you're going to take a section of the hair about an inch or so wide, and curl the hair, hold the curler up straight, and curl the hair around the wand. Now, the thicker the wand, the bigger the curl, so wrap it all the way up here, all the way to the crown, and then release, so you get this quite tight curl like that.
So, just leave it there to cool, and we'll deal with that in a couple of seconds. I'm just going to work through the entire section that's down, just curling about inch or inch and a half wide sections, holding them round the barrel, and then letting them fall, just like that. So, keep repeating that in alternate directions until the entire hair that's left down has been curled.
So, with the top layers of your hair, just exactly like the bottom layers, continue curling around kind of one inch sections, in alternate directions. So, I've just backcombed the hair at the roots and kind of throughout the length of the hair as well, and I've curled the bottom of the hair, just to give it that real kind of, Victoria's Secret feel. So, it's always a good idea if you have kind of thinner hair to backcomb it just a little bit extra along the crown, and through the roots as well, just to give it that real bouncy look.
And that's how to style your hair like a Victoria's Secret model. .
