Met Gala How-To: Edgy Topknot

“With that flowing Carolina Herrera dress and soft makeup, romance was the inspiration for Hailey’s look. I wanted to add some contrast, so I made sure the top knot was messier and edgy.” – Celebrity Hairstylist Florido Basallo, @florido Nine Zero One Salon

Get the Look:

  • Step 1: On damp hair, spread a quarter sized dollop of L'Oréal Professionnel Sleek and Swing through the tresses, followed by a straight blow out.

  •  Step 2: Then take medium sized sections of the hair and spray L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium 4 Hairspray, comb and press the hair with a T3 Singlepass Luxe to make the hair bone straight

  • Step 3: Once stick straight, brush into a high ponytail with a small Mason Pearson then apply L'Oréal Professionnel Or Graphic Modelling Gel to the sides and back of the ponytail.

  • Step 4: Loop and tuck the rest of the hair into a creative knot. Pin, pin, pin to secure.

  • Step 5: Tie into a knot of messy perfection and spray it with L'Oréal Professionnel Extreme Lacquer Hairspray to seal the deal!
