The stars were out at the annual Met Ball at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, to help celebrate and raise funds for the opening of the Museum’s 2010 Costume Institute Exhibit. Between thunderstorms, the weather was humid and hair stylists were challenged to create glamorous looks that were not only beautiful but also frizz-free. Hairstylist Mark Townsend created Rachel Weisz’ hairdo for the ball.
The Hairstyle & Inspiration: “The theme of this year’s Met Ball was “American Woman,” and after seeing Rachel’s Oscar de la Renta dress I knew that we should keep her hair down and sexy.
How To: Hair Tutorial
I started by adding a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment to her hair, to condition and strengthen it while reducing drying time. This helped ensure a shiny, healthy look. Then I blow-dried her hair with a medium-sized, round brush.
When all the hair was dry, I used a 13/4-inch curling iron and rolled the hair from the ends to the roots in the iron. This technique creates more volume at the bottom of the hair instead of at the roots. When the hair was curled, I brushed it out with a flat brush. To tame flyaway hairs, I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the top section of hair and then sprayed Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray on the ends to fight the New York City humidity and frizz. This Spray helps to enhance Rachel’s highlights and creates amazing shine that will last all night. Rachel was so happy with the outcome of her hair and felt it was soft and sexy with a bit of a classic 70’s vibe.”
