Who Was Behind Kylie Jenner, Lily Aldridge And The VS Models Looks For The 2015 Fashion Show?

It’s that time of year again when we watch the most gorgeous women strut their stuff down the Victoria’s Secret Show runway! Now, you too, can achieve the look at-home with help from celebrity hairstylist, Sarah Potempa, and 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Official Hair Partner -- Beachwaver Co.! Pick a style! Any style… from the below hair looks created for the show and the hottest after party of the year on Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge, Sara Sampaio and Rachel Hilbert!

The Look: Glamorous, relaxed beachwaves
The Inspiration: The modern muse who wants effortless, beautiful hair that lasts

Runway Show How To:

  1. Prep hair with a mega lift volumizing mousse and blow dry up with the Beachwaver Co. Pro Dryer. Loosely blow dry hair to create natural volume with a natural part. Bring all hair forward and separate in to the left and right sides. Start by sectioning hair from the bottom up using the Beachwaver Co. Darby Clip.
  2. Using the Beachwaver® S1, 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. Then repeat on the other side.
  3. Spray a flexible hairspray on the Beachwaver Co. On Set Styling Brush, which is a combination of boar bristle and nylon bristles. Brush out all the waves. Finish by smoothing the ends with a lightweight shine serum.
    • 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 VS Fashion Show)

Kendall Jenner After Party How To:

  1. Start using the Beachwaver S1, section by section. Leave out about two inches of the ends. Curl away from the face.
  2. Add a texture spray to the roots and at the top to give the look a lot of volume.
  3. Use the Beachwaver Co. Mini On Set Styling Brush to tease roots and add additional volume.
  4. Pull top section of hair up with a clear elastic at the top of the head. Twist the bun to add texture.
  5. Back brush hair at the roots with the Beachwaver Co. Mini On Set Styling Brush.
  6. To recreate the look at home, the Beachwaver Co. Half Up provides an effortless solution!             
  7. Finish by pulling out beachwaves to the side.


Lily Aldridge After Party How To:

  1. Part hair in the center.
  2. Use the Beachwaver S1 rotating curling iron, which works in both directions to give you a more natural looking wave.
  3. Blowdry bangs forward to provide movement in the front of the hair.
  4. Use the Beachwaver Co. Mini Touch Up Iron to smooth bangs and provide shiny movement in the front.
  5. Soften the waves and make them a bit more straight and textured.


Sara Sampaio After Party How To:

  1. Create a French dutch fishtail braid in the back of the hair. Bring hair all the way around the back to then bring it around to one side of the hair to create a side braid.
  2. Repeat the same pattern over and over, and say the mantra in your head "left under to the right, right under to the left.” Braid all the way down
  3. Then turn it into a three-strand braid. Secure with clear elastic.
  4. Use the Beachwaver S1 and a little of the Beachwaver Co. Ceramic Styling Iron at the roots to provide more texture. 

Rachel Hilbert After Party How To:

  1. Create classic, gorgeous beachwaves by using the Beachwaver S1.
  2. Spray hair with a flexible styling hairspray.
  3. Brush out hair with the Beachwaver Co. On Set Styling Brush.
  4. Voila! Big sexy waves are the end result.

Of note, the bottle is a warm aqua marine hue embellished with a perfect light tangerine ribbon and the classic Victoria’s Secret gold-toned charm. The bottle and topper are of the same hue with the topper made to look like an oval gem.

For the gentleman we, present Very Sexy For Him: Very Sexy For Him (100ml - $52), launched in 2001, has a Citrus Aromatic theme that even after 14 years on the market still remains fresh, exciting and inviting.

Behind The Scenes For Victoria’s Secret Fall Makeup Campaign

Courtesy of Victoria's Secret
Cooler weather is definitely on its way, but Victoria's Secret knows exactly how to make it a little bit hotter. Victoria's Secret angel Candice Swanepoel sizzles during their most recent ad campaign for the fall season, which was shot on September 24 in New York City.

The lingerie brand made their name famous not only for their products but for their enviable Victoria's Secret angels and one of them being the South African beauty, Candice Swanepoel. On the campaign, Candice works her way on the camera for a sultry photo shoot for the brand's new fall beauty collection.

During their behind-the-scenes video, Candice together with fellow model Lindsay Ellingson do what they do best and pose for Victoria's Secret cosmetic line. Candice is seen in a fresh and playful makeup look, sporting coral lip gloss, heavy mascara and red nails paired with a shimmering eye shadow applied both to the eyelid and under the eye.

In another shot she debuts a classic strong red lip, sultry eyeshadow and shimmering bronzer. Meanwhile, Lindsay is styled in a bold metallic look, featuring sultry brown eyeshadow, which tapers into a standout silver, lashings of blusher and shiny silver nail polish.

Candice Swanepoel looked extra sexy wearing only a bra top with her hair tousled and her face made up. The 23-year-old model also explained to the viewers how a makeup campaign is different from doing a lingerie shoot: "With lingerie you have to be more conscious of your body and the way that you move your body. With beauty it's much more intricate, it's a lot slower. You have to get certain looks, see the colors, it's totally different."

Candice was seen modeling variations of looks from the collection but admitted that she is a big fan of the classic Victoria's Secret makeup. “I always love the classic Victoria's Secret look with thick liner, kind of feline. I love a red lip as well,” she said. Reader’s can get a behind-the-scenes look by clicking at The Women’s Network!
