Wow! Watching the Met Gala this year was like stepping into a dream world of high fashion and unmatched glamour. Dubbed the “Oscars of Fashion,” the Met Gala 2024 was an explosion of jaw-dropping gowns, dazzling jewels, and, most importantly, avant-garde hairstyles that redefined the beauty game. I was absolutely mesmerized by the celebrities who pushed the boundaries of hair fashion, creating looks that will undoubtedly set the trends for the coming year.

Imagine the excitement of seeing the most searched and talked-about hairstyles up close, the ones that are already making waves on Instagram and TikTok. From the sleek, polished ponytails to the voluminous, textured waves, the red carpet was a runway of hair inspiration. These incredible styles were not just showcased in Vogue, Allure, The Zoe Report, and Fashionista, but they also dominated every social media feed, making everyone’s jaw drop. 

As I soaked in the electric atmosphere, I couldn't help but think of how these hairstyles would look with our FABULIVE hair extensions, perfect for achieving that celebrity look. It was clear that the Met Gala 2024 wasn't just an event; it was a hair revolution, and I was right there, living it!


Sydney Sweeney’s sleek black bob was undeniably one of the most captivating hairstyles of the evening at the Met Gala! Paul Corbett, Advanced Creative Director, rightly pointed out that this bold yet elegant look exuded confidence and sophistication. The sharp lines and glossy finish of her bob were a stunning departure from her usual soft blonde hair, showcasing her versatility and daring fashion sense. It was a masterclass in how sometimes less is more when making a style statement. This striking transformation has everyone talking, proving that Sydney Sweeney is not just a talented actress but also a true style icon. The sleek black bob is set to become one of the hottest hair trends of the year, inspiring countless fans to embrace this chic, modern look.


I absolutely loved Iris Law’s look at this year’s Met Gala. Pixie cuts are one of my all-time favorite haircuts, and Iris wore hers flawlessly – with flippy ends, a choppy fringe, and a chic wet finish. This style highlighted her beautiful facial features and perfectly complemented her face shape, adding a modern, alluring touch.

To recreate this stunning pixie, start by using a heated styling iron to gently bend the longer ends at the back for those fabulous flipped ends. Next, mix a gel with a serum or cream and apply it through the hair using a comb to achieve that sleek wet look. Finish with a hairspray like Schwarzkopf Professional Silhouette Super Hold Spray to set the style and add an extra dose of shine. As Suzie McGill, Artistic Director at Rainbow Room International, suggests, this technique will give your pixie cut that runway-ready finish.


I absolutely loved Kim Kardashian’s cool, laidback hairstyle at this year’s Met Gala. From the front, she rocked disheveled, textured beachy waves that cascaded into a thick, loose braid halfway down her back, radiating romantic vibes. Her return to platinum blonde was stunning, with super clean, icy tones and no hint of brassiness, perfecting the overall look.

To recreate Kim’s look, start by prepping towel-dried hair with KMS TameFrizz Smoothing Lotion before blow-drying to prevent any frizz. Next, lightly tousle the hair into waves using a styling iron. Add texture and a ‘messy’ finish by spraying KMS Hair Play Dry Texture Spray throughout the waves. Then, create a loose braid at the back, gently pulling out sections to achieve a more relaxed, effortless finish. Finally, lightly mist Hair Play Dry Texture Spray over the braid to hold the look in place all night long. This technique ensures a chic, laidback style that’s both glamorous and easy to wear. As Tina Farey, Editorial Director at RUSH, suggests, using the right products is key to achieving this stunning, Met Gala-worthy hairstyle.


Buns and chignons stole the spotlight at this year’s Met Gala, and I was enamored by the stunning variety showcased by the stars. Kylie Jenner rocked a sleek chignon with curls delicately pinned at the back, adorned with a charming pink rose for an extra touch of elegance. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez opted for a more relaxed topknot, leaving small sections of hair framing her face to soften the look and add an effortless vibe.

Braided buns also made a statement, with Taraji P. Henson flaunting a mesmerizing style where her braid seamlessly merged into a polished topknot at the crown, exuding sophistication and grace. These intricate yet chic hairstyles demonstrated the versatility and creativity of buns, proving that they can be tailored to suit any occasion. As Sabrina Dijkman, ALTERNA Ambassador, noted, the Met Gala was a showcase of breathtaking bun inspirations that left everyone in awe.


The Met Gala is an event I always eagerly anticipate, and last night was nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer Lopez epitomized glamour in every sense, donning a stunning Schiaparelli couture gown. Opting for a simple yet chic approach with her hair, she rocked a relaxed top knot, allowing her dress to steal the spotlight on the hottest red carpet of the year.

The relaxed top knot she flaunted is a trend in its own right, commonly seen on both clients and consumers alike. To recreate this effortless look, start by prioritizing hair health with a professional hydration shampoo and conditioner. Even when styled up, maintaining hair health is essential. Next, dry the hair, using fingers to add volume at the roots for that undone texture. Gather the hair loosely at the crown to form a high ponytail, embracing the casual vibe. Backcomb slightly and wrap the ponytail around its base, securing with bobby pins. Finish off with a firm hold hairspray to lock the style in place. With this technique, as suggested by Tracey Ann Smith, ASP Global, you can effortlessly channel Jennifer's red carpet elegance for any occasion.


I adore the elegance of beautiful waves, and Kaia Gerber epitomized this at the Met Gala. Sometimes, simplicity speaks volumes, and Kaia's look was the perfect example of understated glamour. Her team nailed it with an old Hollywood-inspired blowout, focusing on high volume at the front of her hair, which cascaded beautifully across her shoulders.

To recreate this timeless look, prioritize hair health first. After prepping the hair, create a deep side parting, angling it diagonally from the front to the crown to achieve a full, voluminous fringe. Use a large barrel brush to work through the hair, concentrating on adding volume at the roots and lifting the hair up and over the brush for overall volume. For the swooping effect of the fringe, dry the hair back on itself with the brush. Finish off with a shine spray to enhance the luxurious finish. With these techniques, as recommended by Jay Birmingham of Jay B Haircare and Jay Birmingham Hair, you can effortlessly exude the same timeless elegance as Kaia Gerber.


The green carpet at this year's Met Gala was awash with ultra-long wavy hair, and Kendall Jenner's locks were nothing short of ethereal. Her lightly curled extensions cascaded down her back in a cloud-like fashion, exuding a fairytale-like quality that perfectly matched the event's theme. Achieving this healthy, hydrated finish is key, and I love using the JOICO KBOND20 treatment, which not only nourishes the hair but is also ideal for extensions. Gill Berry, Senior Creative Artist at JOICO, knows that this look is not just about length but also about maintaining hair health and achieving that dreamy, whimsical vibe. With the right care and products, anyone can channel the enchanting allure of Kendall's Met Gala mane, turning heads and capturing hearts with every step.


The wet hair looks at this year's Met Gala had me absolutely obsessed! Tyla and Rebecca Hall rocked incredible styles that truly stood out. Tyla's tousled bob perfectly complemented her sand-inspired ensemble, and I couldn't help but wish they played her song 'Water' as she ascended the stairs – talk about a perfect match! Rebecca's swept-back short 'shower-wet' look was simply stunning. Achieving a sleek, glossy finish that lasts without being greasy is truly a skill, and it's one of my personal favorite looks to create. This style is particularly enhanced by short, wavy hair, as it accentuates the natural texture beautifully. I'm beyond excited for chic and sexy wet looks to dominate this summer, and with the right techniques and products, anyone can rock this trend with confidence and style. Bring on the heat! Brian Leo McCallum, Owner of ROAR Hair & Beauty Salons, knows that wet hair looks are here to stay, and I couldn't agree more!


Sarah Jessica Parker stunned at the Met Gala, pairing her Richard Quinn dress with a striking headpiece by iconic milliner Philip Treacy. Paul, referencing the legendary beauty Guinevere, dubbed her hairstyle as "Guinevere hair," perfectly complementing both the dress and the hat.

To recreate SJP's voluminous look, Paul suggests adding extensions and applying a generous amount of mousse. He recommends tonging the hair first and then combing it out to achieve a slightly disheveled appearance, adding to the overall drama of the style. With the right techniques and products, anyone can channel the regal elegance of Sarah Jessica Parker's Met Gala look, making a bold statement that commands attention and admiration.


Joining the bob bandwagon, Gigi Hadid showcased her golden blonde locks at the Met Gala, styled into an Old Hollywood-inspired look to complement her rose-embellished Thom Browne gown. Paul admired the model's jaw-length curls, describing them as amazing and perfectly in tune with the dress.

To achieve a similar glamorous look, whether with heated rollers or a curling wand, it's crucial to finish with a stronghold hairspray. This ensures the curls hold their shape throughout the night, maintaining that classic, sophisticated allure reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour. With the right tools and products, anyone can recreate Gigi's stunning Met Gala hairstyle, exuding timeless elegance and grace with every step.


Chloe Sevigny's Met Gala hair always adds to her conceptual outfits, and this year was no exception. Paul revealed that her sleek hairstyle was inspired by Victorian mourning traditions, where hair was worn flat and straight with braids adorned with jewelry to signify mourning.

While Sevigny's look was controlled and severe, Paul suggests a more relaxed version of Victorian braids for those looking to emulate the style. By adding a touch of softness and messiness, you can create a look that's still elegant but with a hint of modern sexiness. This approach allows for a reinterpretation of historical hairstyles, blending the classic with the contemporary for a unique and personal twist. Whether paying homage to tradition or adding a modern edge, there's room to experiment and make the style your own.
