Met Ball Hair How To’s

Met Ball Hair How To’s

So many fabulous styles, so much hair envy! Here are a few of the ‘dos from Monday night’s Met Ball in NYC.

Of course, we’re providing you with the how to’s from the mane men and women who tamed the A-list tresses...

Jessica Alba by Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai
Look: romantic and modern

Apply FEKKAI MORE ALL DAY DENSITY STYLING WHIP and FEKKAI COIFF BOUFFANT LIFTING & TEXTURIZING SPRAY GEL to wet hair. Blow dry hair with FEKKAI COMB starting from the forehead to the crown of the neck so that it does not dry too straight. Braid all of the hair loosely and pin it with bobby pins to create shape and set style. Finish with FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY all over.

Kate Hudson by David Babaii

Look: natural waves

To start, I sprayed our David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray and distributed evenly through the hair to create the volume, texture and lift I was looking for. Next, I used the David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer on medium heat and medium air flow. I used my hands instead of a brush so I could create texture. To create her beachy waves I did some soft scrunching and twisting small strands around my fingers until dry. I finished this look with Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray for a lightweight touchable hold.

Blake Lively by Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai
Look: a sexy and modern style without out being too over done

Use FEKKAI COIFF STRONG HOLD VOLUME MOUSSE on wet hair to create fullness and body. Blow dry using FEKKAI EXTRA LARGE ROUND BRUSH to make the hair very straight. Tease the hair and pull it all back into a tight pony tail. Secure with a rubber band. Then use a small amount FEKKAI MAGNIFIQUE ULTRA LIGHT FINISHING CREME all over and finish the look with FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY.

Emma Stone by TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist Mara Roszak
Look: super sleek, side chignon

Apply TRESemmé Anti-Frizz Secret Smoothing Crème to towel-dried hair. Part hair to one side, and blow dry smooth with a bend in the ends. Pull hair all the way over to the side, and tie the ends into a low pony with a band. Wrap the pony and loop it as if you’re going to knot it, so it forms a bun like shape. Secure with bobby pins, crisscrossing them as you pin. Spray TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Hairspray all over to hold the style in place.Finish the look with TRESemmé No-Frizz Shine Spray to add shine and tame flyaways.

Jessica Biel by Adir Abergel for Frederic Fekkai
Look: modern ballerina bun

Start out by applying FEKKAI COIFF BOUFFANT LIFTING & TEXTURIZING SPRAY GEL at the roots making sure to create body and movement. Dry the hair with your hands allowing the natural texture to come through. Once dried, take a 1″ curling iron, curling the hair away from the face. Finish by applying FEKKAI MAGNIFIQUE ULTRA LIGHT FINISHING CREME to create a relaxed separation in the hair. Pull the hair back into a ballerina bun just below the crown, making sure to leave texture around the face for a modern vibe. To finish the look spray hair with FEKKAI GLOSSING SHEER MIST and FEKKAI SHEER HOLD HAIRSPRAY.

Liv Tyler by David Babaii
Look: Old Hollywood starlet

To create this Sophia Loren inspired look, I used a large barrel curling iron by FHI Heat. First, I parted her hair to the side using the highest point of the eyebrow as my guide. Then I created 4 sections (top, sides and nape) for total control. Before curling each section, I sprayed Volcanic Ash Root Lift to each strand then clip each curl. This provided the volume and lift needed for any special event. Next, gently brush curls out using your fingers and allowing curls to fall into a natural pattern. To finish, I sprayed Mise en Plis Extra Hold Styling Spray that provides not only maximum hold but leaves hair with a brilliant shine.
