Carey Mulligan at the 2010 MET Ball

The stars hit the red carpet at The Costume Institute Gala Benefit. This year, the MET Ball celebrated the opening of the “American Women: Fashioning a National Identity” exhibition and Hollywood’s hottest actresses showed up with equal parts glam and daring. Sebastian stylist Thomas Dunkin tended to the locks of An Education actress Carey Mulligan before the gala. Looking to counter Carey’s very feminine dress with a tomboy flair, Thomas styled the actress’ short ‘do with a full fringe crop that’s approaching a very short bob.

Here, Thomas shares tips for recreating Carey’s understated style.

1. Dampen hair and apply a liberal amount of Sebastian Professional Potion 9.

Rachel Bilson at the 2010 MET Ball
