Yesterday I broke the news that Cindy Gorgeous Crawford was packing not one, but a few(!), itty bitty bottles of her husband’s Casamigos tequila in the clutch she carried at the Met Gala on Monday night.
There was other intel in that post (about a new facial oil from her Meaningful Beauty line), and I also mentioned that hair god Ward Stegerhoek crafted her sleek, center-parted look.
Well, just a few minutes ago, I received full details about Ward’s Met Gala handiwork, as well as the exact Living Proof products he used to get her hair looking so mighty fine.
I figure that for mamas of a certain age (cough, cough…me), who may be utterly stuck in the ’90s (me again), reading about Cindy’s beauty secrets never gets old.
So I’m happy to share Ward’s step-by-step process.
But before we get rolling, how about a cute pic of Ward himself?
Btw, in addition to all his editorial, runway and ad-campaign work, he’s also the co-founder of Living Proof. A key reason the products are so, so, so good.
Now onto the process and the products…
How to Get Cindy’s Met Gala Hair Look
1. Step One: Part hair pin-straight down the middle. Then, blow-dry wavy hair straight using Living Proof No Frizz Weightless Styling Spray. Use generously as this product is king to smooth the cuticles and create slip on the hair that blocks humidity 100%.
2. Step Two: Spray Living Proof Straight at a distance to keep the look dry while flat ironing. Flat iron in small sections starting at the nape of the neck. Finish with Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield all over. Shake out hair and alternate between brushing out with a flat brush and spraying Humidity Shield throughout.
4. Step Four: Spritz Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray on a toothbrush and use as a touch-up for flyaways at the part, behind ears and at hairline using little brush strokes for that extra-sleek look.
Then, like Cindy, go have yourself a wee little drinkie. Cheers!
