The Met Gala is one of the biggest celeb events of the year, so it’s no wonder why we were on hair watch all night! Some amazing styles hit the red carpet this year (anyone else spot Lupita’s gravity defying style?) so we’ve rounded up our top five styles for you to copy at home!

Super Soft Waves

Amber Heard looked incredible as always and rocked a super simple style that’s really easy to recreate. Start with towel dried hair and a spritz of our Perfect Blow Dry Spray to keep it quick and easy, and use our Hot Air Styler to quickly dry into shape. The rotating brush will add volume at the roots and leave your locks sleeker than ever! Flip your locks over to one side for that effortless style and spray with our Freeze Hold Hairspray for some serious staying power!

60’s Straight

Poppy Delevingne is a #StyleQueen in her own right and her sleek chic look definitely didn’t disappoint! Get the look with our Salon Professional Straighteners, starting by protecting your locks with our Styling Heat Protection Spray. Set the temperate to 180 degrees and carefully straighten every lock of your hair from root to tip, leaving to cool before touching again. For extra hold, finish with our MiracOILous Hairspray to keep that long lasting shine!

Boxer Braids

Soft boxer braids were a go-to style for this year’s Met Gala, but Emma Roberts absolutely slayed it! To re-create this look at home, part your hair down the middle and start braiding a few centimeters away from the hairline, crossing underneath instead of over. Secure with a small silicone band and finish with our Freeze Hold Hairspray to keep your braids on-point all night long! For extra texture, use our Tousled Wave Spray before braiding.  

Slicked Back Chic

Queen of ‘effortless everything’ Alexa Chung worked the slicked back look this year and we love it! It’s the simplest style of them all and requires very little effort. Just rub our Styling Primer through towel dried hair, brushing the hair away from your face with your fingers and dry with our Speed Dryer. Once dried, apply a little more primer for extra hold.

Crop It Like It’s Hot

Kylie Jenner looked absolutely fire in her incredible Balmain gown paired with a super short crop, and we’re loving her new look! This look was all about keeping it super shiny. Style short hair with our Straight Up Straightener, curling under slightly at the ends and gently finish with a touch of our Perfecting Polish for an extra sleek finish – and voila! Kylie Jenner’s hair in no time! Which was your favourite look from the Met Gala?
