Jessica Alba‘s pretty chignon for the 2013 Met Ball was created by Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy stylist Jen Atkin. Says Atkin, “Jessica and I were so excited to collaborate on this look with the theme being punk. It let us go outside the lines with her hair.” Here, the beauty breakdown, straight from Atkin.
“Texture was key in this look. To get this look at home I recommend washing the day before styling when trying a style like this at home. I love Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Volumizing Root Boost for great body and texture in the hair and a well nourished scalp. On Jessica, I worked with her dry hair and the texture it had. I added some Dry Bar Dry Shampoo to her roots for more texture. I tied the top half of her hair into a top knot, teasing the ponytail before knotting it with a Sonia Kashuk brush and secured with a Cyndi band hair tie. I then French-braided the back, and tucked any excess hair under by securing it with bobby pins. I incorporated some Fallon jewelry into her hair. I loved these because the sharp edges on the arrows evoke a safety pin vibe, which is a punk rock staple. I finished the look with a veil of Oribe Superfine Hairspray and Oribe Texturizing Spray in the bun.”
Yay or nay on Jessica Alba’s Met Gala style?
