Kate Bosworth looked gorgeous in her shimmering gown a the Met Gala, copy her updo.
Actress and fashion influencer Kate Bosworth wore a pale off white chiffon gown flecked with gold with a pearl embellish mantilla/capelet designed by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Oscar de La Renta. The gown is a cross between an Infanta, Dior's New Look formal wear with a dash of LaCroix's 80s high-low hemline.
Her hair was styled by celebrity hairstylist, Michael Silva x Cricket Co. Tools. In contrast to the elaborate ensemble, her hair was styled in a sleek updo. “I saw the dress and immediately thought of the iconic sculpted hair that you see within catholic sculptures and paintings.” With that in mind, he created a sculpted rose chignon with a cross part. Michael’s clients also include Megan Markle, The Kardashians, and Ashley Graham. See below for step-by-step and details:
- Wash and condition the hair, add setting gel along with a good serum and detangled the hair using the Cricket Co. Ultra Smooth Coconut Detangler Comb
- Using a paddle brush and Cricket Co. Ultra Smooth Coconut Detangler Comb dry the hair section by section
- Create a center part, and part hair horizontally leaving out small section of hair in the front to create a cross shaped part using the Silkomb Pro-55 Wide Toothed Rattail
- Secure hair tightly in a pony tail using elastic string, wrapping it around the pony tail and tying
- Split pony tail hair into 4 sections and use a high heat flat iron like Cricket Co. Centrix Ceramic Styling Iron
- Saturate the hair with gel and wrap each section around the ponytail center to create a sculpted bun.
- Using a good high heat flatiron create an S wave/finger wave style with the small section of hair at the front, next saturate the hair with styling gel like R+Co strong hold gel and lay each section flat sculpting it toward the forehead, down and back towards the ear on each side with the Silkomb Pro-55 Wide Toothed Rattail
- Last, use white setting paper to secure shape while drying and apply a heavy coat of hair spray to set the style
