Get The Look: Jourdan Dunn’s Met Gala Cornrows

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway worked with Jourdan Dunn for the ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 4) in New York City.

“I was inspired by the cut outs and crochet lacing on Jourdan’s Burberry dress. It inspired me to mimic the pattern by designing cornrows going on a diagonal and while also embracing Jourdan’s natural hair texture with a great heat free hairstyle. I finished off the look by putting it in a modern ponytail.”

Here’s how to get the look.

Lacy prepped Jourdan’s hair with Head and Shoulders Moisture Care Co-Wash to help lock in moisture into her hair before adding the braids.

After blow drying her hair with a Harry Josh Pro Blowdryer, Lacy braided Jourdan’s hair using a little Oribe Rock Hard Gel to help with frizz.

Once Lacy was done braiding she finished off with a little Shine Serum with Argan Oil by Pantene.

    Love this article! Wish there was more detail on how to actually re-create the cornrows themselves rather than just the products used but still it’s refreshing to see a feature like this. Most sites wouldn’t bother.
