If you could drag your eyes away from Doja Cat’s feline nose prosthetic and Lil Nas X’s G-string, there was a wealth of amazingly creative hairdos on show at the recent Met Gala in New York.
A case in point was ‘Abbott Elementary’ star and Golden Globe winner, Quinta Brunson, who rocked laid edges that were defined into curls and paired with a sleek bun to end all buns. Said bun comprised of three tiers of poufs made with spiral braids. The do was styled with white dangling leaves.
The award for the most amount of hair on the red carpet must surely have gone to ‘Mamma Mia!’ star Amanda Seyfried, who had a mass of pre-Raphelite blonde waves spilling all over.
Youthful singer/ songwriter Phoebe Bridgers must surely have been a contender for the messiest updo of the night – her hair was dyed gray (a questionable but trending shade at the moment) and half-festooned into a bun, with lots of strands framing the face. The look was enhanced by thin black Alice bands.
Grammy-winning musician Burnaboy had one of the most intricate styles of the night – a high fade paired with a top knot of dreadlocks in a criss-cross pattern and embellished with custom metallic clips that had a ‘B’ monogram on them.
British musician FKA Twigs stunned with her hair slicked back and arranged into ribbon loops.
‘Emily in Paris’ star Lilly Collins looked beautiful with her retro bob – reminiscent of those seen on 1940s Hollywood actresses. Her locks were styled by @gregoryrussellhair.
For actress and singer Janelle Monae, celebrity stylist Nikki Nelms constructed a towering top knot wrapped in a braid and ribbon.
‘Little Mermaid’ star Halle Bailey opted for a short, curly chestnut bob, neatly parted and that was half dreadlocks and half hairpiece.
Rapper Cardi B’s look was worthy of notice because it was so over the top and almost comic-book like – a long grey bouffant wig complete with Alice band.
‘Don’t Worry Darling’ star Florence Pugh has been rocking ultra-sculptural blonde dos on the carpet of late, so her Met Gala Look was startling in contrast – a dark buzz cut worn under a skyscraper feathered head dress.
Micro bangs were definitely a trend on the red carpet as most notably seen on model Emily Ratajkowski, R&B star Lizzo, singer/ songwriter Olivia Rodrigo and British actress Lilly James. (Report by Natasha Chisese and Joanna Sterkowicz)
