Leave it to Lorde to transform every-day natural waves into a romantic red carpet-worthy look. Celeb Stylist Cameron Rains (@cameron.rains) describes the inspiration for this look as, “A very mystical nymph-like look. We wanted it to be romantic and flirty but also have a little bit of a witch vibe. She is wearing a crown, so we wanted the hair to compliment it as well. Hair health and preparation were key elements in her look, we focused on her natural hair texture.”


The intricate crown showcased the ethereal elegance Cameron brought to the 2021 Met Gala through Lorde’s natural glam. Read below for the inside details on the prep work and finishing touches to create her look.

Products Used



Prep begins the night before with Matrix Total Results A Curl Can Dream Shampoo followed by Matrix Total Results A Curl Can Dream Rich Mask to hydrate the hair and create a strong foundation for the look.


After rinsing out the hair mask, twist the hair back and put it in a chunky braid to let sit overnight.


Then, for day-of styling, apply Matrix A Curl Can Dream Lightweight Oil throughout the hair to catch any fly-aways and add shine for a soft and romantic look.


To finish, Cameron added a sleek braid at the crown before applying Matrix Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray which contains an anti-frizz ultra-fine mist that leaves hair static-free, shiny and manageable.
