Cue the Beyoncé: “I can see your halo, halo, halo!” Rosie Huntington-Whiteley went full-on angel at the 2018 Met Gala, and Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Ambassador Christian Wood (@cwoodhair) gave us the full breakdown below!

 

Christian said he was stunned by Rosie’s ethereal Ralph Lauren gown and gold halo headpiece to match the night’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” “I thought the hair should be sleek and sharp with a regal element to it,” Christian says. “I decided on a sharp middle part and large, twisted, glossy chignon.”

HOW-TO STEPS

1

Start by applying Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Light Luminous Reflective Oil to wet hair. Blow-dry smooth section-by-section using the ghd air® Hairdryer and a round brush.

2

Once dry, part the hair in the middle using a pintail comb. Then, run the ghd gold® professional styler over the top layer of the hair to achieve an extra shiny, smooth base for pulling the hair back.

3

Brush the hair into a low ponytail and spritz with Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Firm Hairspray while brushing to remove flyways and add hold. Secure the ponytail with an elastic band.

4

Using a ghd curve® soft curl iron, curl a few sections of hair to add a loose wave to the ponytail. “This helps when pining the hair into a chignon giving you more manageability when styling,” says Christian.

5

Wrap the ponytail around the its base in a circular motion, pinning with large hairpins as you go to create a large sleek chignon. Mist with EIMI Stay Firm Hairspray for extra hold.

6

Spray the entire head with Wella Professionals EIMI Glam Mist to add extra shine to the entire look.

7

Finish by applying a small amount of Wella Professionals EIMI Sculpt Force to your fingertips and smooth over any flyaways “This technique helps give a super sleek result without overloading on product,” Christian says.
