Hollywood Beauty Awards 2023 hairstyling nominee, Alexander Armand created a show-stopping hairstyle for award-winning actress Quinta Brunson at the MET Gala.
“For Quinta’s look we decided to traverse the intersection between hair and high fashion, creating an artistic crown headpiece using her natural voluminous curls and coils to make a statement and up the ante on her signature updo. The updo was the perfect complement to accentuate her high cheek bones, beautiful eyes, and the sultry silhouette of her Prabal Gurung Gown,” Alexander said.
How can you get the look? Alexander gives us the 411:
- He washed and conditioned Quinta’s hair with Maui Moisture’s Clarify & Soothe Black Soap Shampoo and Conditioner.
- Blow dried it on a cool setting, generously applied Maui Moisture’s Frizz-Free + Shea Butter Hair & Scalp Milk. This maintains moisture and sculpt a sleek texturized ponytail.
- Applied Maui Moisture’s Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Edge Control to stylize and design her baby hairs with a fine-tooth comb.
- To architect the headpiece, additional textured hair is added and manipulated. Maui Moisture’s Lightweight Curls + Flaxseed Curl Refresher Mist is used to seal the look and give it a red-carpet glow.
