The Secret Hairstyling Tool Behind Our Favorite Met Gala Standouts


While our favorite hairstyles at the iconic Met Gala 2018 ranged from sleek straight to the craziest updos, it seems that they have more in common than you think.

As different as these hairstyles might seem, our favorite Hollywood hairstylists fall back to the trusty DYSON Supersonic Hair Dryer Professional Edition—their go-to for a good reason. As it regulates heat to protect its natural shine, it also has a motor that dries your hair six times faster, allowing these celebrity hairstylists to have fast, controlled hair styling.

With that said, take a closer look at five of our favorite looks and each hairstylist created them:

1. Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid’s hairstyle, a delicate updo with a 10-pound veil wrapped around it, was created by Hollywood favorite Jen Atkin. To prep her hair before putting it up, the blowdryer was used on medium heat.


2. Kim Kardashian

Kim’s sleek ponytail was created by Chris Appleton. While it may seem rather uncomplicated to some, products to battle frizz and humidity were essential in keeping it silky smooth.

3. Evan Rachel Wood

Sleek and simple in the front, a little bouncier on the back thanks to Dyson’s product. “The concept for her hair look tonight came from the design of the outfit itself. Evan wore a gold cape made of individually hand-beaded feathers,” shares hairstylist John Dahlstrom.


4. Rihanna

Yusef Williams, Rihanna’s hairstylist, shares that while he wanted to go back in time to create this Vatican-homage, he wanted to go with “a single finger wave to make it feel modern and more avant-garde.”


5. Cardi B

To match her show-stopping headpiece and her personality as well, Cardi B’s hairstylist Tokyo Stylez went for a kinky textured look using the dryer with a paddle brush.
