Get the Look: Our Favorite 2014 Met Gala Styles

Fashion icons and Hollywood’s elite gathered for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute gala to celebrate the opening of the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibition. Billed as the most glamorous night in fashion, A-listers sizzled on the red carpet for the 'White Tie and Decorations' theme. Here are some of our favorite looks from the night, along with the hair how-tos:

To complement Claire Danes’ elegant, Oscar de la Renta gown, Peter Butler for Moroccanoil created a soft updo.  First, he Applied Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to damp hair from root-to-tip to create volume at the crown and give strands extra body and bounce. After blow drying it, he used a 1.5” barrel iron, and curled 1” sections around entire head. He then created a deep side part and finger combed the hair into a very low ponytail. To complete the look, he wrapped the entire ponytail into a physical knot, pulling the end of the ponytail through, securing with knot pins. For a shiny finish, he applied Moraccanoil Glimmer Shine.

Marissa Marino for Moroccanoil created a glamorous, structural updo for Selena Gomez, who conveyed true American glamour. She started by applying Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to wet hair to create volume and blew it dry using a Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Brush 35mm. With a  1.5” barrel iron, Marissa then curled 1” sections around entire head and applied Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection to protect strands. To create the updo, she split hair in three sections: bottom (ear-to-ear); middle (temple-to-temple) and top (full crown). Starting with bottom section, Marissa created a ponytail at the nape of the neck, and then rolled the entire  ponytail upwards and pinned horizontally for a tube effect. After securing with pins, she rolled the middle section horizontally and pinned underneath into the bottom roll. To finish, she lightly teased the top section for extra volume and rolled vertically, pinning into the middle roll. 

Drawing inspiration from the 1940’s Peter Buter for Moroccanoil created luxurious locks for Georgia May Jagger. To create her Veronica Lake cascading curls, he first applied Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse to wet hair from root-to-tip to for volume. Starting with the top section of the head (full crown), he used a 1.5” barrel iron to curl hair in a backwards direction. When strands were still hot, he pinned the curls and allowed to cool. He then took hair on the sides of the head and divided into two sections. Using a 1.5” barrel iron, he curled each section towards the back of the head.  When strands were still hot,  he pinned curls and set to cool. He divided the rest of hair into 2” sections and used a barrel iron to create soft, full, voluminous waves. He brushed the hair using the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Paddle Brush to soften the waves into 40’s-style waves. After removing the pins from the top sections of hair he lightly finger-brushed through the ends with Moroccanoil Treatment Light to control flyaways and add shine.
