Euphoria heartthrob Jacob Elordi was styled by Amy Komorowski (@akgroomer) using American Crew®. “For Jacob’s Met Gala look this year, I wanted the hair to look polished yet effortless, with just the right about of volume and texture,” says Amy.


Recreate Jacob’s effortless red carpet look:

  1. Prep the hair with American Crew® Prep & Prime Tonic. Evenly distribute through the entire head for a light hold and texture.

  2. Follow up with American Crew’s new Matte Clay Spray. “I sprayed a few pumps just to the front part of the hair and used my fingers to add lift to the roots,” says Amy.

  3. With a hairdryer on low, use your fingers to create lift at the roots. 

  4. Mix American Crew® Cream Pomade with American Crew® Matte Clay for a combo that provides moisture and conditioning benefits with a bit of shine.

  5. Lastly, for extra hold and definition apply American Crew® Matte Clay focusing on the ends of the hair.

  2. Apply Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Mousse Strong Hold Volumizing Mousse on wet hair to achieve a soft hold and added volume. 

  3. Add two pumps of ROZ Santa Lucia Styling Oil before blow-drying hair. Then, curl hair with a 1 and ¼” iron to create cascading soft waves.
