Few present-day hairstyles are as iconic as the bombshell waves that walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway. Tousled to perfection and glossy beyond belief, these boudoir-meets-beach stylings are constantly coveted by girls the world over and we've tried it all to get the Angel waves at home.

Thankfully, sometimes the masters behind these otherworldly stylings spill their secrets to aspiring angels. Most recently, celebrity colourist Shah Karegar, the mastermind behind the dark tresses of brunette Victoria's Secret beauties like Irina Shayk and Barbara Fialho, filled PopSugar in on what goes into achieving those impossibly luscious locks.

"Try not to shampoo it more than twice a week," Karegar advised regarding not just colour-treated hair but natural as well. "The reason why a lot of brunettes get mousy is because their hair is dehydrated, whether it's [from] the sun or being shampooed quite often." To ensure added hydrated, he recommends hydrating hair "as much as possible" with a high-quality conditioner. Karegar warns against allowing your hair to become overprocessed through too much styling. To strengthen his clients' locks he uses Uberliss Bond Treatment when colouring. For the show, he achieved Shayk's gorgeous brunette shade running "some lowlights using all vegetable colours," never permanent, to maintain her all-natural look. 

Evo's Fabuloso Chestnut colour-depositing conditioner ($40) is an easy way to keep brunette strands hydrated and vibrant.
