This maybe true if Jude was a hair guy, because Miller’s hair was looking hot on the red carpet last night. You guys knew this “Met Gala Post” was coming, but instead of doing “the best beauty looks of the Met Gala,” (we’ve already got one of those) I’m going to take this as an opportunity to highlight “the best looks that withstood the humidy/thunderstorms and why” post. Did you notice the majority of the hair styles had a simple and understated elegance? That’s because it had been pouring for two days straight and was 90 degrees. I got some info on Sienna Miller, Claire Danes and Rachel Weisz’s Met-heads and found out that all of their coifs had something in common: Moroccan Oil. I’ve often recommended MO to my pals as a skin and hair savior, but I did not know there was a whole product line devoted to the rare tree extract. Moroccanoil (that’s the brand’s name, simple and understated) was responsible for the ladies’ frizz-free looks on this terribly humid/rainy night.
The theme, as I’m sure has already been beaten into your head by now, was American Woman. And what says American Woman better than wearable style? Surely “I spent nine hours with my hairstylist today” does not exactly portray a modern American girl, which is why I’m particularly fond of these three looks. The main product used is made from the Argan tree, a rare tree native only to Morocco whose extract is a powerful antioxidant and UV protector, rich in vitamins and natural elements. Moroccanoil brand harvests this product under a free trade program which provides substantial socio-economic support to thousands of families in the Souss-Massa region of Morocco, providing income and improving the working conditions of rural women. It’s blended with a host of vitamins until it becomes a super-product that is both effective and good for your hair.
Rachel Weisz Hairstylist Mark Townsend noticed the vibe of Rachel’s dress was sexy-70’s, so he wanted to do the impossible and hook her up with a sleek blow-out. Here’s his master plan for copping the coif. 1) Add a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment to hair to condition and strengthen it while reducing drying time. 2) Blow dry wirh a medium round brush. 3) Curl hair from ends to roots with a 1 ¾ inch iron, brush out with a flat brush. 4) Spray with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray at the crown to tame frizz/flyaways. 5) Spray Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray on ends to fight humidity.
Sienna Miller Hairstylist John D. wanted Sienna to exude the summery look of Brigitte Bardot. 1) Finger-comb damp hair with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to treat and prevent frizz. 2) Blow dry with a flat bristle brush. 3) Fasten half the hair into a undone, messy half-upstyle, leaving volume at the crown. 4) Spray with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to treat and protect hair from humidity. Claire Danes Hairstylist Peter Butler wanted to compliment Claire’s strapless slate-grey gown by Christopher Bailey for Burberry, with a hair look that highlighted her elegant pale blonde color with natural-looking polished and textured waves. “It’s almost like a modern version of combed out beach waves with a refined texture.” 1) Apply a dry shampoo at the roots for volume, then use Moroccanoil Light to smooth and hydrate strands and protect hair before using a curling iron. 2) Curl hair with a medium barrel curling iron, picking up small sections starting at the nape of the neck, twisting hair around while leaving ends straight. 3) After combing curls out with a wide-tooth comb, adjust the texture with hands and bring curls forward to soften the face. 4) Smooth ends with Moroccanoil Light. 5) Finish with a light mist of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray followed by Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray for a natural hold.
