Top 7 2021 Met Gala Hair Looks

met gala

The 2021 met gala kicked off earlier this week and we can’t wait to talk all things hair! Here are our top Oscar Oscar-approved hair looks from the carpet.

Before anyone asks – Queen Rihanna was wearing a hat… and now we’re all buying black beanies.


1. Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys never fails to impress when it comes to beauty. When we saw Alicia’s Met Gala look, we were instantly obsessed! The gorgeous singer wore a super sleek low bun with a middle part that was delicately encrusted in Swarovski crystals.

She paired the hair with minimal makeup and red lips. This intricate look is both enchanting and elegant and can be easily replicated on a toned-down level for the Christmas season approaching!


2.Timothée Chalamet

Boys with the curls get the girls is an understatement. Requests for long touseled do’s are going off the charts lately! Thanks to style icons like Harry Styles and of course, Thimothée Chalamet taking over the spotlight, the long, loose curls are where it’s at!

To be honest, we can’t get enough of this style! For boys and girls, this type of hair looks so effortlessly chic.

We’re also loving other renditions of this hairstyle with shorter sides, modern mullets, and even shorter shag haircuts!

3. Jasmine Tooks

Absolutely obsessed with this style! Jasmine Tooks is giving us an edgy take on the modern pixie cut. This layered whispy cut is super flattering and easy to style with tons of texture and dimension. We love how Jasmine rocked a “wet hair” look making her hair look healthy and glossy. It is easy to re-create with a good hair gel, some nourishing hair oil, and working with your natural hair texture.

4. Troye Sivan

This Aussie singer was turning fashion heads at the Met Gala this year with an iconic grungey look. When it comes to hair, Troye Sivan is always at the forefront of trending. From his “wet look” curls to funky bleach jobs, Sivan really sets the stage for hair on point.

With this Met Gala style, Troye went all out on the retro Americana grunge vibe. Bringing back the “90’s frost” with angsty modern elements like these loose curls and shorter sides, we’re totally into this contrasting hair look!

5. Emily Ratajkowski

Simple but effective. Emily Ratajkowski is giving us the ultimate sexy hair to compliment her lacy red number for the carpet. The inspo for her hair? Ultra-healthy and effortless! To achieve this type of look, go for a cut with long layers and long face-framing pieces. Use a hydrating and strengthening hair treatment on a regular basis to maintain hair health. Finish off the look with volumizing products and smoothing hair oil!

6. Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee switched it up from her typical girl-next-door brunette look and went icy blonde for the Met. This look completely transformed her and looks amazing. Although this hairstyle is super bold for Hailee, it can also be re-created in a wearable style. Think long layered hair with icy blonde ends and a stretched-out dark root. The contrasting hair colours are super on-trend right now, especially when incorporating a cool-toned blonde with a super dark chocolate root.

7. Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion channelled Hollywood glam for the Met Gala this year. She went for these stunning finger waves that fall into classic glamour girl waves for her carpet look. This hairstyle will always be timeless and we love seeing it re-created on different hair types, including Megan Thee Stallion with her beautiful thick mane and gelled down edges.
