Clad in a spiderweb-inspired frock by Topshop, Julianne Hough's Met Gala hairstyle was set to mimic the latticework design of her ensemble. In fact, celebrity stylist Riawna Capri used over 100 visible black bobby pins to secure the star's pompadour updo. The effect was edgy and modern, with the dark pins providing a striking contrast to Julianne's flaxen strands.
To achieve the style, Capri began by prepping Julianne's wet hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Foaming Air Mousse ($5). Her strands were then blown out with a round brush, and a small dose of firm-hold gel was applied throughout. Next, Capri took one-inch sections to create a series of three ponytails on each side of Julianne's head. Loose pieces of hair were secured with the bobby pins in a creative fashion to form a tight style. To finish, Capri molded Julianne's bangs into a pompadour, securing at the back in a crisscrossed pattern. A few spritzes of Vidal Sassoon Extra Firm Hold Hair Spray ($5) to finish lent the perfect amount of punk rock lasting power.
