These days, braids are appearing on red carpets everywhere. And, last night’s MET Gala was no exception.

“I was inspired by the cut outs and crochet lacing on Jourdan’s dress,” says Lacy Redway, who worked with Jourdan Dunn for the Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the MET. “It inspired me to mimic the pattern by designing cornrows going on a diagonal and while also embracing Jourdan’s natural hair texture with a great heat free hairstyle. I finished off the look by putting it in a modern ponytail.”

Get The Look:

Step 1: Prep with co-wash. “I prepped Jourdan’s hair with Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash to help lock in moisture into her hair before adding the braids,” says Redway.

Step 2: After blowdrying her hair with a Harry Josh Pro Blowdryer, Redway braided it with Indique hair and used Oribe Rock Hard Gel to help with frizz.

Step 3: After braiding, Redway finished off the look with Pantene’s Shine Serum with Aragon Oil.
