Fashion’s gone au naturel!
This Tuesday, Paris played host to the much-anticipated and envy-inducing Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016 – and boy oh boy was it a glamorous event! With a whole host of stunning models and a star-studded set of performers, the VS show was all anyone could talk about over the past few days. But for the All Things Hair team, it was the amazing hairstyles that grabbed our attention most! Here’s why…
This year, instead of using hair extensions to achieve the voluminous blow out hairstyles that have become synonymous with the runway show, models were encouraged to embrace their natural hair lengths and textures! So, want to see the hairstyles that we fell in love with? Then simply scroll through our gallery above, and read on for the lowdown on each model’s au naturel style.
The best hairstyles from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016
Model Jourdana Phillips embraced her curls when she strutted her stuff down the runway, and totally worked her TWA (AKA teeny weeny afro) like a pro. And as if her incredible cropped ‘do wasn’t cool enough, she topped off her look with an icy platinum blonde hue, which gave a striking contrast to her dark eyebrows!
Newbie angel and star of the show, Bella Hadid rocked sultry, voluminous waves, which she styled with a neat centre parting. Her long locks tumbled effortlessly past her shoulders and worked as a great way to frame her stunning face. For her first VS runway show walk, we think she did a great job!
Herieth Paul let all her kinky coils loose on this year’s runway, and paired her uber cute TWA with some glam, over-sized hoop earrings. Her makeup was kept minimal with subtle eyeliner and a shiny nude lip gloss, leaving all of the attention to fall to her ‘fro and sporty ensemble – no extensions required!
Alanna Arrington showed off her wild, bouncy curls at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016, and proved that curls are undeniably sexy! Her curly mane was styled into a chic bob, helping to ensure that her look didn’t fall flat when she was parading up and down the stage. Alanna also decided to give the her ‘do some extra oomph with addition of some choppy layers!
Blonde bombshell Lily Donaldson took to the runway donning the signature Victoria’s Secret blow out (sans extensions), and looked utterly amazing! Her angel-worthy waves were teamed with subtle highlights to ooze elegance and glamour – who needs add-ons when your hair looks this good in it’s natural state?
Lameka Fox & Maria Bourges
At last year’s show, model Maria Borges challenged the beauty norm by shaving her hair and sporting a short ‘fro for the VS show – and it went down a big hit. This year, she’s followed with another cute cropped afro hairstyle, which was quite the contrast to fellow model Lameka Fox’s long, brown hair, that was styled into soft, romantic waves. Ooh la la!
