Met Ball Beauty: Christina Ricci and Ashley Greene Hair How-tos
The Met Ball is MAJOR, and I’m lucky to have been working with two of the most beautiful girls (Gibson Girls!) in the business for it: Christina Ricci and Ashley Greene. Here’s how I created their respective hairstyles for the evening.
For Christina, she needed the perfect style to showcase her amazing Thakoon gown, and I knew this chic, sleek chignon would be absolutely gorgeous on her. First, I started off with wet hair and sprayed build it blow drying agent on mids and ends. I then applied fix it gel all over and blew hair dry with a medium sized round brush in one inch sections. Next, I flat ironed her entire head. I parted her hair in a deep side part and pulled everything back into a tight ponytail. I then created a large chignon in the back, pinning her hair with medium bobby pins. I finished with beautiful hold hair spray.
And for Ashley, I did a soft, sexy, undone hair and this look complimented her Donna Karen gown perfectly. I started with fix it gel and hair sheet styling over her entire head. I then blew dry her hair with my fingers to add texture as opposed to a smooth surface – I wanted to rough the cuticle up. Next, I used a medium sized curling iron, took two inch sections and wrapped the hair around the iron creating soft waves. Finally, I sprayed her with beautiful hold hairspray to hold everything in place and tousled with my fingers to give her that undone, sexy look!
