Victoria's Secret Hair: GET THE LOOK!

Maggie Mulhern | December 17, 2013 | 8:48 AM

How many clients request "Victoria's Secret" hair? We KNOW it's a LOT. MODERN caught up with Paul Merritt who was THERE...BACKSTAGE for the show. Merritt used ghd professional hair styling tools and the ghd tri-zone styler (and VS hair styling products). Here he re-creates the look on VS model Lindsay Ellingson and shares HOW TO get the look:

STEP 1: Apply VS Mousse from roots to ends of damp hair. Section the hair and dry using the ghd air.

STEP 2: Starting at the nape, take a horizontal section of the hair and mist with VS Hairspray. Place two fingers at the root of the hair and wrap the hair around, tucking in the ends to create a pin curl around the fingers.

STEP 3: Once the section is wrapped, gently remove your fingers. Close the ghd tri-zone styler onto the pin curl, hold for about five seconds, letting the heat do its work, then remove the styler and pin.

STEP 4: Repeat this technique through the hair. Keep fingers straight at all times when wrapping the hair.

STEP 5: Once cooled, release the curls from the pins. To finish, mist hair with VS Hairspray or VS Dry Shampoo, depending upon your hair texture or the amount of volume you want to create.  Use your hands, or a brush, to create your desired finish.
