Met Gala Inspired

Met Gala is THE fashion event of the year. For me, what comes to mind is the glitz, the fashion, and the hair presented in an over the top, avant-garde package to celebrate and fundraise at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's newest exhibit .


I'm always excited to see what the red carpet will hold, and with this year's event days away I thought what better time than to recreate some of the Met Gala's iconic hair moments.


THE INSPIRATION: Gigi Hadid's 2018 'Heavenly Bodies' minimally chic and sophisticated hair.

THE INSPIRATION: Another 2018 favorite. Whimsical princess vibes? Yes, please. Amanda Seyfried's curls and tiara had many swooning.

HOW TO:

My model has natural wave to her hair, so it was washed the night before and air dried.

Step 1: squeeze a dime sized amount of Olaplex No.6 rubbed in from the midsection of the hair through the ends and then add a small amount of Olaplex No. 7 rubbed in from midsection to ends.

Step 2: part hair down the middle. Using a 1" barrel curling iron, curl hair in a spiral configuration away from face.

Step 3: gently comb. Don't brush out, but you want to separate curls and create volume by softly combing the curls. I used my YS Park comb.

Step 4: spray evenly to tame any flyaways. I used Kenra Perfect Medium Spray.

Step 5: add your favorite glitzy hair piece... similar headpiece {don't forget to purchase through my shop to save 20%!}

THE INSPIRATION: What can I say about Rita Ora's Met Gala 2016 classic chignon with mirrored appliqué? Only that you either love it or hate it. I loved it! This style gives me a bit of a Gatsby feel along with the perfect vibe for ringing in the 2022 New Year.
