Met Costume Institute Gala Hair: Brooklyn Decker


Brooklyn Decker looks fresh and cool in her neon fuschia Michael Kors gown at the 2011 Costume Institue Gala Benefit. Hair stylist Wesley O'Meara kept Brooklyn's bob sleek yet messy for an effortless do. “ We wanted to achieve a rock n’ roll feeling, yet still have it look appropriate for what she was wearing and the red carpet for such a highly photographed upscale event.” Keep reading to see how Wesley created Brooklyn's hair style at the Met Gala.


"First, I used water to dampen her hair. I went through section by section and sprayed Cutler’s volumizing spray at the root. I then added Kèrastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse from mid shaft to ends, using about a baseball sized amount for her whole head. Once this was finished, I went through and blew the hair out section by section.  When this step was complete I used a 1 1/4” barreled curling iron in a standard ‘roller set’ fashion, then pinned each curl to set.  

I then removed the pins and let the curls fall. I doused the hair then with Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray to give a really ‘beachy’ look and to help some of the curl fall.  I went through with my hands and shook her hair out really well, did some back-combing here and there. Finally, once Brooklyn was dressed I used Elnett Hairspray to lock the look into place.”
