7 Major MET Ball Hair Trends you need to try now

Monday night was the magical Met Ball in New York City. With the theme being Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology there was a lot of futuristic metallics and extravagant hairstyles we loved!

Here are our top 7 MET Ball hair trends you need to try now:

1. Silver/Grey tones

Grey has been a major trend for a while now and is not going anywhere. Go bold with an all over silver colour tint like Ciara, or for a more subtle hue, add a grey ombre to the ends of your hair like Jourdan Dunn. Speak to your Rush stylist in your free colour consultation to find out what would work for you.

2. Platinum Blonde

Peroxide blonde was a popular choice for a colour change on the MET Ball red carpet. Naturally brunette Kristin Stewart kept it effortlessly tousled with her colour starting away from the roots. Even naturally blonde Taylor Swift boosted her blonde to a new shade, we love the contrasting black lipstick for a punky finish.

3. Asymmetrical Lobs

The long bob “lob” is continuing to be more popular than ever. For a glam evening look, part hair into a deep side parting, letting the longer side hang loose and tuck one side behind your ear. Pair with big earrings and a bold bright lipstick.

4. XXLong and Sleek

Beyonce and Katie Holmes opted for extra long elegant poker straight hair. Find out more about our safe, 100% organic human hair extension service Easilocks

5. Bed Hair

Sarah Jessica Parker and the Olsen Twins looked effortlessly chic with their loose wavy “just rolled out of bed” hair. To achieve this look, we recommend lightly spritzing L’Oreal Professionnel Techni Art Wild Stylers Next Day Hair through hair. Use a large bristle brush to smooth hair then use ghd tongs randomly through the hair in different directions to create slight bends.

6. Alternative wet look up-do’s

The sleek wet do up do had a futuristic twist on the red carpet with metallic hair accessories and mini braids as seen on Rita Ora and Miranda Kerr.

7. Sky High

Celebrities were taking their hair to new heights and we love it, with Katy Perry and Lupita Nyong’o taking their futuristic ‘Hunger Games’ style hair-dos to new heights.
