We’re still swooning over all of this year’s Met Gala hair and beauty moments. From textured blowouts to over-top fits, celebs brought their A games in homage to designer Rei Kawakubo’s structured fashion aesthetic. Tops on our list was Jourdan Dunn‘s ponytail slay while draped in a custom H&M creation. Coiffed by celeb stylist Ursula Stephen, the supermodel’s blunt cut look was especially epic since it’s one we could actually rock!
As hair expert for Unilever, Ursula not only shared the inspiration behind the look, which she said “emphasizes texture and shape with a hint of Japanese inspiration,” but how we can recreate the look at home.
“When creating Jourdan’s hairstyle, I wanted to pay homage to the element of surprise that comes with every Comme des Garçons piece. Rei can take something as simple as a turtleneck and add a huge bow in the back to take it to another level. Jourdan’s look tonight plays on this as a clean and classic look with a surprise in the back.”
To get the look at home, start with dry, clean hair. Ursula shared that she used Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Shampoo & Conditioner ($3.49) to prep Jourdan’s hair. She then sprayed Dove Absolute Curls Leave-in Detangler ($5.99) throughout hair “for nourishment and shine”, following up with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Weather Proof Cream ($3.50) to smooth and protect hair from heat before drying.
Once dry, she flat-ironed Jourdan’s hair bone straight and gathered into a ponytail, adding synthetic braiding hair for body and length. “For the striking, blunt look” said Ursula, “I cut the synthetic hair in a straight line across the back of her head to line up with the top of her shoulders.” She finished off the look with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray ($3.99).
