5 Hair Trends To Copy From The 2018 Met Gala

The Met Gala, one of the biggest nights in the fashion calendar, took place last night. With the theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, this year’s event showcased some of the most spectacular and ornate looks we’ve seen on any red carpet in recent history. But among Katy Perry’s outsized angel wings and Rihanna’s Pope-inspired costume, one thing still managed to catch our eye: the hair styles. Keep reading to discover the 5 key hair trends we spotted on the night and how you can replicate them

1. Flowers

Both Hailey Baldwin and Jasmine Sanders opted for the ultimate romanticised accessory: flowers. A summer festival favourite, they can feel fresh and modern this season entwined in a fishtail braid à la Jasmine or as a complement to pastel hair.

2. Hair clips

The accessory that keeps on giving this season? The hair clip. Emphasise the elegance of tousled waves with a incognito pin like Gigi Hadid or make them your main finishing touch and choose oversized jewelled clips like Bella.

3. Beach updo

Tousled, beachy updos were a surprising counterpoint to the high glamour of Selena Gomez, Naomi Watts and Emily Ratajkowski’s gowns. Infuse a tinge of gold and bronze tones into your beauty look to really exude a been-at-the-beach-all-day summer glow.

4. High ponytail

A sleek, high ponytail – as seen on Kim Kardashian, Shailene Woodley and Dakota Fanning- is a red-carpet classic. Go for embellished hair bands, Dakota Fanning-style, to make it feel futuristic.

5. Hair jewellery

High-neck ruffles and a mass of hair jewellery – this trend isn’t for the faint-hearted. Both Jourdan Dunn and Maya Hawke made pearls and beads feel elegant yet edgy.
