This year’s Met Gala had some very interesting hair style looks, all of which I would absolutely rock. (There’s me, above, trying a high pony tail a la Beyonce). While there was a lot of pomp at this year’s fundraiser, not every single one of these styles requires a bevy of stylists to perfect. Some of these looks are absolutely achievable with a set of hair styling tools, some serious hair spray and YouTube.
1. Beyonce’s Mega Ponytail
I’ve always been a fan of the high ponytail (I’m a child of the 80s). Leave it to Beyone to pull off a pretty intense look. She, as always, looked amazing — her super high, wavy pony tail wins. While some of us might need a thickening extension, there are ways to achieve this crazy, fun look:

Some people thought J-Law’s Met Gala (and her dress) looked thrown together, but I am a huge, giddy, unapologetic fan of this woman, her dress and her messy top bun / top knot. I think this sort of style could easily be everyone’s go-to hairstyle, especially with a bold lip color like hers. The messy top bun isn’t always the easiest thing to do, though, despite it’s deceptively simple look. So here’s how you’ll want to achieve it:
3. Chrissy Teigen’s Voluptuous Retro Curlstexturizing spray — really helps as well.
