Stay on top of the 2022 Met Gala hair trends and get ready to learn how to recreate these celebrity looks for your clients.
Actress Camila Mendes‘ Met Gala hair look was styled by celebrity hairtsylist, David Stanwell and was heavily inspired by ’90s grunge fashion. Amika’s global artistic director Naeemah LaFond created a sleek braided look for model/activist Quannah Chasinghorse, which was inspired by her personal style and culture.
Get Camila’s Look:
Step 1: Start the look with wet hair and apply Plus Size Perfect Body Mousse and Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray throughout the hair.
Step 2: Use a round brush and blow dry hair, and then set the whole head in velcro rollers for volume and lift.
Step 3: Once set, spray Fluxus Touchable Hairspray onto the rollers, heat up with a dryer and let set for five to 10 minutes.
Step 4: Once cooled, remove the rollers and spray Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray and backcomb the roots. French-twist the back-half of the hair loosely and pin.
Step 5: Then, section by section, drape the sides back and pin—spraying with Fluxus Touchable Hairspray to set the look.
Step 6: Apply more Un.Done Volume Matte Texture Spray and the Fluxus Touchable Hairspray to get lift in the front section and then loop hair around to create texture. Pin so the hair stays effortless yet still holds.
Step 7: On the pieces outside of the style, use a small amount of Glass Action Universal Elixir to just take away any static or unwanted frizz.
Step 8: Finish the look with Headstrong Intense Hold Hairspray.
Get Quannah’s Look:
Step 1: Part hair slightly off-centre and add a few drops of Glass Action Universal Elixir to the hair.
Step 2: Create a figure-eight braid on the smaller side of the part and add a small cornrow right under it. Both braids should angle upwards and end right at the crown.
Step 3: Add clip-in extensions for added volume. Spray section with Headstrong Intense Hold Hairspray and clip the extensions in. Stopping at the crown so that it blends well with the natural hair.
Step 4: Spray The Shield Anti-Humidity Spray onto the hair throughout the length and smooth the hair with The Conductor 1” Styler.
Step 5: Spray the braid and straight lengths with a few spritz of The Wizard Detangling Primer for an added burst of sheen.
