Anne Hathaway’s good friend, celeb stylist and Virtue® Creative Director Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir) created this minimal-yet-adorned French twist for the 2018 Met Gala. Keep reading to see how he did, plus get a look at how he DIY-ed the quills in Anne’s hair!
Adir and Anne collaborated on the look to complement the night’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” “I was first inspired by Anne’s beautiful red Valentino dress,” Adir says. “The silhouette inspired me to pull from religious figures, futurism and angelic references. I wanted to create something that felt minimal yet modern.”

We loved this inside peek into the life of a celeb hairdresser creating the perfect accessory—watch the video below to see how Adir created the custom quills! “Everyone is asking how I created those golden sticks in @annehathaway hair,” he wrote on Instagram. “Here is my secret. Have an amazing assistant @rena.calhoun go and buy some gold spray paint get some quills you found and spray paint them, wait…have them dry and spray paint again. Love my job. Love figuring out new ways to do hair and use accessories.
