So, I get it; finals are here and studying and “messy buns” are taking over your life. Luckily, The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was on to bring us all back to life. The wings, the flowing hair and perfect makeup had me dancing around the room claiming that, if I failed out of school, I would become a VS Angel (if only). The VS Fashion Show was the kind of inspiration I needed to talk all things BEAUTY BAR with all you Fashionistas and Fashionitos! Those long mermaid curls were everything I wanted in life, and more.
This Fashionista sported these luscious wavy locks and another staple, the cat eye, for a casual, everyday look. Even though short bobs and lobs are all the rage right now, long mermaid curls are still just as popular and beautiful. This Fashionista styled her hair by using a 1 1/2 inch curling iron and just wrapped it around the curler—not in it—taking care to leave the ends out to create a smooth look. After she combed and teased the top to create volume and body, she used Big Sexy Hair hairspray to lock it for an all day stay. This look could take this Fashionista from a casual day into a sophisticated evening.
What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Beauty brands, like Conair, have a wide range of different sized curling irons to achieve any wavy look desired. However, don’t let the lack of hair turn you away from creating long luscious looks envious of any Victoria Secret model. Sally’s Beauty Supply has many options of extensions to create the mermaid look for a day. Embrace your inner angel and fly into hair heaven!
