Met gala 2016: kate hudson

Red Carpet Report

WHO: Kate Hudson

HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist, Shay Ashual

INSPIRATION: “Kate's dress was quite structured. It perfectly captured the theme of the MET Ball, ‘Manus x Machina.’ We felt that a look with soft waves would be the right feeling to compliment the structured dress to give it some romance. From hair to makeup the look worked in perfect harmony.”

TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “I started with freshly washed hair and sprayed ghd heat protect spray then rough dried it with the ghd air™ hairdryer to keep a natural feel to the hair. I used my fingers to comb through the hair while drying. Once the hair was dry, I opted to use the ghd platinum™ styler for the front and crown of the head, taking three quarter inch sections, twisting the iron a bit as I went down the length of the hair creating a soft curve on each section. It makes the curls effortless and chic.

“On the rest of the hair, taking 2-inch sections, I used the
ghd curve® soft curl iron, creating very large, soft waves. Because sections of the hair close to the face required special attention, I pinned them flat against the head after curling them for a more flat wave. I used ghd smooth & finish serum starting at mid-length through the ends of the hair for some light separation and control. To finish the look, I used a light hold spray on top. An overall soft and easy look to contrast the structure and opulence of the Versace dress.”
