18 May WAVES FOR THE WIN AT THE MET
When it comes to red carpets there is none we look forward to more than the Met Gala! And 2023 was no exception. Affectionately referred to as “fashion’s biggest night out,” the Met Gala 2023 is a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The event welcomes stars, young creatives, and industry paragons. The 2023 Met Gala theme was ‘Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty’ to honor Karl Lagerfeld, who was a regular attendee at The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute.
One of the stand-out trends of the night that we will be seeing in the salon for the rest of 2023? Waves! Yep, forget poker straight locks or tumbling voluptuous curls, waves and volume was where it was at. The fun thing about this look is that it can either be subtle and wearable or over the top and dramatic. Here our award-winning hairdressers have selected their favourite looks of the night:
This look is casual cool and looks almost like Gigi just swept her hair up herself into a pretty half up half down style and left the rest undone. It’s subtle in it’s organic texture and it perfectly pulls the hair away from her face whilst remaining feminine.
These 70’s inspired brushed out disco curls were possibly the most fun of the night! We love how brazen they are and yet they perfectly complement her flapper style beaded dress. She looks lie she is having the time of her life and we think it’s mainly the hair!
These are classic and easy to wear- a hair staple for anyone. The classic centre part is flattering for most face shapes and draws the attention to the face, while the tumbling waves then soften the overall look. We also love the highlights around the front of the face to really make her features pop.
The wolf cut. The bangs. The casual tousle. It’s just all there and we love it! The key here is the perfect cut that allows the layers to shine as well as that perfect strawberry blonde shade. Obsessed.
