Trend Report: Met Gala Edition

INSERT NAME HERE’S Lookbook into the Met’s most iconic hair looks 


It’s fashion’s biggest night of the year! The star-studded 2022 Met Gala.


After a pandemic related hiatus, Monday night was the first time in two years that what felt like a true & traditional Met Gala occurred. (The 2021 Gala was held later in the year than usual. The 2020 Gala was canceled, RIP.) 


What was the theme exactly? Gilded Glamor — AKA glamorous looks in reference to the rapid industrialization from the 19th century to mid-late 20th century. (Think Bridgerton, but with more gold.) 


We saw color-changing dresses, so many corsets (worn by women and men), & headpieces galore. But today, we’re going to be focusing on the stunning Met Gala hair looks that we’re just dying to recreate. 


Let’s get into it… 


Stylish & Sleek Buns

The clean & polished look wins again. Sleek updos were one of the most popular looks at the Met Gala. From more subdued, elegant looks by Kerry Washington & Vanessa Hugdgens, to glittery and camp looks from Megan Thee Stallion & Rosalia - sleek buns were in charge. 


Recreate this celebrity-adored look using INSERT NAME HERE’s clip in buns: curly Cami and wavy Sammy. To make sure your flyaways are nowhere to be found, slick on some No Fly Zone Pomade. (For those hot, carpet lights, maybe stick some Quick Slick in your purse JIC.) 









Extra Long Braids

Leave it to no other than Alicia Keys to pull out a hairstyle that basically looks like art. At the 2022 Met Gala, Alicia rocked an extra long braided ponytail, decorated with nine crystal discs. Talk about a museum-worthy look, right?! 


Obviously, we may not be able to help out with the crystal discs. But you can replicate Alicia's extra long braid with our made-to-braid ponytail extension Lara. At a whopping 34 inches, she'll def help you achieve that celebrity red carpet look. 



Banging Bun Updo 

It’s the sleek bun’s sassy cousin. Icons like Billie Eillish, Cardi B & Kacey Musgraves rocked high messy buns with bold bangs on the carpet this year. 

Scared to commit to the bang chop? Us, too. That’s why we have our easy to use clip-in bangs Zooey & Selena. Pair the bangs with clip-in buns Cami or Sammy & you have a Met Gala-ready look. 







Long, Soft Waves- AKA Renaissance Hair

A little bit of wave- a whole lotta drama. Shiny, long waves were seen on the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Lizzo & Sophie Turner last night and we were here for it! 

Create similar romantic vibes by using INSERT WAVES HERE - our best-selling deep wave iron & Lux Remy hair extensions.







Sleek Long Hair 

So smooth & elegant, sleek long hair was definitely a vibe last night that stars like Michelle Yeoh & Quannah Chasinghorse slayed. Simple, chic & timeless- celebs can never go wrong with this red carpet hair look. 


To recreate this look, extend your inches with INSERT NAME HERE’s U-Clip or Remy Human Hair extensions. These babes add instant, natural-looking length to your hair, without weighing you down. 


Add a sleek finish to your look by using No Fly Zone Pomade. That way, no flyaways can ruin your red carpet premiere. 




Bonus: Emma’s Bleached Bob

We couldn’t finish our Met Gala hairstyles roundup without mention of fashion’s favorite Youtuber: Miss Emma Chamberlain. Her edgy, platinum blonde bob had us absolutely gushing and wanting to recreate the look ourselves.


Obviously, going platinum & making the bob chop are both really big commitments. Luckily, we have Billie- a metallic light purple blob that’ll scratch your rebellious itch. While not a perfect rendition of Emma’s look, Billie will give you all the bold shock power that Emma served. 



We're so excited for all of your Met Gala-inspired looks! Strut your stuff and show us your paparazzi pics. Tag us on Instagram, Tiktok, Pinterest, Twitter & Facebook and use the hashtag #INHBabe!
