Hair to give you wings
ghd creates show-stopping hair for the Victoria's Secret Angels using new ghd curve®
The Victoria's Secret Angels got a London-style hair makeover for their debut show in the capital, thanks to official backstage hair tool sponsor, ghd.
A team of ghd stylists, led by international session stylist Akki Shirakawa, created beautiful Angel hair using the portfolio of ghd styling tools. Backstage hero products included the cult ghd curve curling tongs which created the soft, undone waves seen on the 47 angels walking in the show. An instant sell-out launch, the ghd curve® range of irons and wands create healthier looking curls that last all day & night.
'Hair with movement' was key to the brief and each Angel was given a bespoke look. A mix of curls and waves were created using both the ghd curve® classic curl iron and soft curl iron, on sections of hair varying in size and thickness. To ensure the finished look had a London edge, the ends of each section were left loose and uncurled. A blast from the ghd air® hairdryer broke up the curls and finished the look. The curls and waves came into their own as the Angels took to the runway, moving and lifting into a halo of texture as they walked.
Curling in a non-uniform way added real fluid beauty to the hair. The ghd curve tongs give a long-lasting curl that ensured the girls could walk the runway then party afterwards and still look amazing.
