Side Parts Dominate At The Met Gala 2014

Author Lya Navarra

The Costume Institute Gala, known as the Met Ball or Met Gala, is a ball that celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. The red carpet evening is hosted by Vogue magazine and it’s a treat to see the gowns, and of course, the hair. The frocks are the main event, so hair tends to be simple. This year, many opted for a chic low side part - either slicked back, adorned with accessories or braided to the side.

To create a deep side part, use a comb when blow drying instead of a brush. Hair is being redirected from its natural growth pattern and a comb can grab hair closer to the scalp to redirect hair better.

Low Side Part

  • Apply Redken iron shape 11 to towel dried hair for control.
  • Use a Sam Villa Short Cutting Comb with fine teeth (it’s made to work with heat styling tools) to section part.
  • With the nozzle of the Sam Villa Professional Ionic Hair Dryer, directionally dry hair (medium to high heat) to the side, making sure to grab hair at the scalp with the comb.
  • Finish with Redken control addict 28 for touchable hold and shine.
