RIHANNA RULES

Her 2018 Met Gala Coif Details!

Music superstar Rihanna always stuns whenever she makes an appearance at New York’s Met Gala…and last night she did not disappoint. Working with this year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” the singer/actress donned an intricately beaded ensemble complete with headdress. Celebrity hair pro Yusef Williams, Rihanna’s go-to mane pro, details, “John Galliano is the inspiration of all inspiration. For this look, I wanted to go back in time and create this Vatican-homage, but with a single finger wave to make it feel modern and more avant-garde.”

Here, Yusef, breaks down the mane details of Rihanna’s coif from last night:

Step 1 Begin with wet hair and blow dry on high heat using the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer professional edition.

Step 2 Once dry, he used a curl spray to hydrate mane before pulling the hair into a ponytail.

Step 3 He then applied a workable holding spray and hair paste and continued drying the hair.

Step 4 “I didn’t need a flat iron because the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer professional edition is so good,” details the hair pro.

Step 5: “From here I created finger waves on either side of her face, using the flat iron to create the flat waves,” notes the stylist. He then brushed it out using a fine tail comb, locking in the shape with the hair spray.
