When maximalism is the mantra—this year’s 2019 Met Gala theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion”—turning your client’s hair into an explosion of stars and diamonds is the perfect way to play up her starry Moschino gown (obvi!). Just like these metallic-accented, goddess waves on supermodel Stella Maxwell by iconic celebrity stylist Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir). Get the inspiration and styling breakdown below!

 

Style Notes: “After seeing the Moschino dress I started pulling inspiration from 1940s film like Hedy Lamarr in ‘Ziegfeld Girl,'” says Adir. For the custom headpiece, “I turned to my good friend Sara Bieler Sasson from Lelet NY to collaborate on a concept. Sara and I shared sketches and ideas that brought our vision to life. The result was an explosion of stars and diamonds that had the ability to be staggered, giving the look dimension.”

HOW-TO STEPS

1

Start by washing the hair with Virtue® Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner for a healthy and shiny foundation.

2

Then, saturate the hair with Virtue® Volumizing Primer and apply Virtue® One For All 6-in-1 Styler from mids to ends.

3

Rough-dry to plump up the hair strands. Create a center part, then blow-dry the rest of the hair with a round brush.

4

Then, use a medium-sized curling iron to create wavy bends throughout the hair for an ethereal vibe.

5

Then, apply hair accessories. Adir layered custom stars by Lelet NY around Stella’s head shape and secured them into place. To make a statement, he attached one line of stars dripping down her part and secured with double-stick tape.

Finish by combing out the waves to give the look a rich softness.
