The Victoria’s Secret Angels’ secret weapon

  • Post a comment
Victorias-secret-main_article_new

It’s no secret how in love the bh girls are with the Victoria’s Secret Angels. From Alessandra Ambrosio’s glossy mane to Adriana Lima’s ultra-toned bod, we’re totally obsessed.

Besides their impossibly long limbs, the one feature that makes the models stand out is their hair. But those trademark big, flirty and head-turning hairstyles don’t just appear overnight.

Professional hair styling brand GHD was in charge of the ‘do’s last year and to my excitement, has just announced its second year of partnership with the show, gearing up to style the girls’ manes again this December.

They’ll be using stylers, hairdryers and the newest addition to the ghd family, ghd curve (a range of curling wands and tongs), to create the iconic Victoria’s Secret hairstyle on all of the angels, including Aussie favourites Shanina Shaik and Kelly Gale.  

One thing’s for sure: if last year’s parade is anything to go by, we can expect some seriously show-stopping hair looks.


Are you as obsessed with the Victoria’s Secret Angels as we are? What hair looks would you love to see on the runway?

Four weeks to summer: a summertime smooth skin routine

  • Post a comment
Pool-smooth-skin-main_article_new

Summer will see your wardrobe choices shift from big knitted jumpers and jeans to shorts, skirts and – for the daring – crop tops. No matter what your fashion style’s like, as it warms up you’re likely to have a bit more skin on show, which is why it’s so important to establish a routine that’s going to leave your skin soft, smooth and summer ready.

 

SMOOTH SKIN ROUTINE #1 Hair removal

You can’t have smooth skin if there’s a layer of fuzz over the top. And when you’re wearing skirts and dresses almost every day, the last thing you want is a short-term solution like shaving. Adding a monthly wax to your beauty routine is an easy, long-lasting way to make sure you’re hair-free all summer long. Veet Natural Inspirations is a new range of hair removal products featuring Wax Strips and Sugar Wax, which both contain natural ingredients like argan oil and aloe vera*, to leave the skin feeling super smooth and soft. For those who prefer a painless option, there’s also the Veet Natural Inspirations Hair Removal Cream.

 

SMOOTH SKIN ROUTINE #2 Exfoliating

Exfoliating your skin every 2-3 days will not only remove any rough and dead skin cells, but it will also prevent ingrown hairs from occurring after hair removal. As a bonus, gently buffing your skin every few days helps to improve blood circulation and boost cell renewal – both of which lead to silky, smooth skin.

 

SMOOTH SKIN ROUTINE #3 Moisturising

Moisturising is essential when it comes to achieving smooth skin. For the best results, apply a fast absorbing lotion to your entire body, every day. I’m talking arms, legs, stomach, butt – EVERYWHERE! This will keep your skin hydrated and banish that dry, scaly feeling forever. In summer, skin can be more dehydrated than usual, so it’s especially important to follow this step in the warmer months. For extra beauty points, go for products containing aloe vera – they work to lock in moisture and soothe the skin.

 

BONUS SMOOTH SKIN TRICK:

Use a clear spray sunscreen as your sun protection. It will coat your skin with a nice sheen, giving the appearance of smoother, silkier skin. Oh, and say hello to longer looking legs!

Exfoliate and moisturise but I do shave instead of waxing. I've just started using gradual tanners and those steps are crucial for a great looking tan.

Yes I am trying to do more exfoliating but I think I go overboard sometimes.
