5. Their hair is thanks to sorcerous stylists who work tirelessly to make sure the coifs are on POINT.

They give them the best blow dry of their lives and then style their hair with Axe products. Because models are just like us Normals.**Not.

6. But it's not all about beauty. These are men with minds.
