Celebrity hair stylist, Miki Loiacono, styled actress and model Lily Collins, for Monday night’s Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala. Miki echoed Lily’s gorgeous chiffon gown to create a romantic, textured hair look that is easily achievable at home. With soft waves that angle the face and a messy texture in the back, Lily successfully achieved the best of both worlds.
THE INSPIRATION: “Taking cues from the Valentino collection, I wanted to keep Lily looking fresh and modern. Nothing was too stereotypical, or too decadent. The look we achieved was sophisticated, yet perfectly undone to match her youthful nature.” Miki Loiacono
GET THE LOOK:
- To prep, wash hair using Davines Essential DEDE Shampoo (£14.70 / 250ml) and Davines Essential DEDE Conditioner (£16.40 / 250ml). These products gave Lily a gentle cleanse, for a soft and light look.
- While hair is still damp, spray Davines Essential DEDE Hair Mist (£18.50 / 250ml) as a leave-in conditioner to untangle the hair, then apply Davines More Inside This Is A Volumizing Mousse (£17.00 / 250ml) to the roots.
- Before blow-drying the hair, spray Davines Your Hair Assistant Blowdry Primer (£24.80 / 250ml) from roots to tip. Then use a medium-sized brush and begin to blow-dry the hair, ensuring smoothness all around the head.
- To prevent frizz and ensure smooth strands, apply Davines More Inside This Is An Invisible Serum (£15.00 / 50ml) to seal the shaft of the hair and provide moisture.
- Using a one-inch curling iron, create soft waves through the front of the hair.
- Spray Davines More Inside This Is A Dry Texturizer (£19.60 / 250ml) to the ends and then curl the back section of the hair, creating a more textured and effortless look.
- To finish the look, use Davines More Inside This Is A Medium Hairspray (£17.00 / 400ml) to hold the curl and keep the hair manageable throughout the night.
