About Her Heavenly Coif…

We all took a collective breath when gorgeous Cardi B appeared on the red carpet at last night’s Met Gala rocking a heavily beaded ensemble complete with stunning headdress. Here we break down the mane details about the music star’s coif…

Celebrity Hairstylist Tokyo Stylez is responsible for creating the bodacious hairstyle Cardi B rocked last night. Falling in line with this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Tokyo Stylez definitely gave Cardi’s coif body using six bundles (24-inches long each!) of Luxury Collection Passion Wave textured hair by Hair So Fab.

After installing the hair, warm water was spritz to dampen and moisten the hair. Next, a heat protectant product preps and protects the hair for heat styling. Tokyo Styles opted for Avlon KeraCare Foam Wrap-Set Lotion.

Using a vented round brush and the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer professional edition (set on medium heat), mane was brushed out from bottom to the top to create volume. A 1/2-inch curling wand, and a bit of hair oil, was enlisted to further style tresses. Using a paddle brush, hair was blown out again to give it a nice, flowing textured look. To create a even more texture, hair was gently teased using fingers. Mane was misted with a light oil (like argan oil) to add shine and hairspray to lock in the style.
