YouTube’s shining star Emma Chamberlain made a head-turning debut at the 2021 Met Gala that left us needing the inside deets. Celebrity Stylist Laura Polko (@laurapolko) nailed the sleek style that created a perfect balance of a youthful look with an elegant edge on the 20-year-old influencer.


We’ll be expecting recreations of this look all season long—read below for the full how-to from Laura that you’ll want to keep on hand!


The Inspo: “We wanted to keep it young and cool but not too young. Chic is the vibe and keeping the focus on the eyes,” says Laura.

Products Used



Start by prepping wet hair with Aquage Uplifting Foam and begin distributing product from the back and working through to the front.


To create lifted volume behind the sleek bangs, set the back of the hair all the way up to the crown using Velcro rollers. 


For the front of the hair, use Aquage CBD Medium Hold Styling Gel to slick down the hair and create an added shiny finish. 


To set hair, apply heat using T3 Fit Dryer and keep hair locked in place with setting clips.

For the retro flipped-out look, use a curling iron to go through just the bottom portion of hair—barrel size will be determined on how tight or loose of a flip is desired. 


Finish the look with Aquage Finishing Spray throughout and Aquage Dry Texture Finishing Spray for hold and volume at the crown.
