Get the Met Gala Look: Alexa Chung

The Look “The inspiration for Alexa’s look was a modern, effortless take on David Bowie. Her beautiful, shimmery Thakoon outfit gave the appearance of a sequined suit so, we wanted her hairstyle to deviate from her signature casual look.” – L’Oréal Professionnel Hairstylist Anh Co Tran Co-Owner of Ramirez Tran Salon 

Styling Tips 

Step 1: First I had Alexa wash her hair clean.

Step 2: Then I prepped the wet hair with Absolut Repair Lipidium Leave-In Blow-dry Cream a pea size amount applied mostly on the ends to smooth them where Alexa has highlights.

Step 3: I then rough dried her hair with my fingers, without moving it too much which can make hair really straight, my goal was to keep her texture.

Step 4: Then I curled her hair, pushing the hair back, leaving the ends out, so it lookedmore effortless and natural.

Step 5: I finished off the look with Crêpage de Chignon Mineral Powder Spray and then sprayed it with Tecni.Art Infinium 4 Hairspray right before she left.
