Stella Maxwell was rocking hair for days at the 2018 Met Gala, and it was styled by none other than longtime stylist and friend Virtue® Creative Director Adir Abergel (@hairbyadir)! Drawing inspiration from this year’s theme—”Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”—Adir opted for super long locks to accentuate Stella’s saintly Jeremy Scott-designed Moschino gown, creating the ultimate ethereal vibe. Find out Adir’s inspiration behind the hair, then get the steps to recreate this look below!
“I really wanted to bring a certain religious element to the look,” says Adir. “I pulled references from girls around the world that grow their hair out for religious purpose and ceremony. The extreme length adds an ethereal element.”
