Jennifer Hudson served pure hair and fashion fantasy at the 2016 Met Gala in NYC Monday night. The actress and singer’s whimsical gown and edgy rendition of the classic bob were a red carpet hit at the technology-themed costume affair.

Celebrity hairstylist César Ramirez said he created a “sleek and textured bob” to keep her grand H&M dress as star of the show. The MIZANI Global Artistic Director shared how he created the look using “clipped in pieces of Indique pure straight hair and prepped with the Mizani Thermasmooth System, which helped to achieve a smooth sleek look while heat protecting.”

After drying and flat ironing the hair, he texturized with a razor to create an edgier feel. “To really bring out the texture,” added Ramirez, “I ran a dime size of Mizani Edge Taming Gel reducing weight on her sides while pumping up volume on top. Making sure the ends we’re very piecey,  I finished with Mizani HRM Spray for hold.”

With bobs continuing to trend, we think this is a great way to spice up the look at home. Would you?
