The 2023 Met Gala was a night to remember, with celebrities showcasing their stunning looks on the red carpet. Among them was Ariana Debose, who stunned in a hair look that paid homage to Karl Lagerfeld’s iconic hair color and her own heritage.
Ariana Debose’s Met Gala hairstyle was created by Celebrity Stylist, Araxi Lindsey, who combined different ideas to create a unique look. Joseph Altuzarra envisioned the classic finger waves of Josephine Baker, while Ariana and Araxi had a vision of white ombré cornrow braids. Together, they created an edgy, artsy look, and celebrated cultural greatness.
Araxi used the As I Am Rice Water Collection to achieve this look for shampooing and conditioning. The collection is known for being light with a gentle fragrance, making it the perfect choice for Ariana’s hair. After a blow dry to smooth her hair for braiding, Araxi went for an artsy parting with a little bit of edginess.
The result was cornrows going into a fishtail braid with a tribal finish. To smooth and condition Ariana’s edges, the Araxi used the As I Am Classic Curling Jelly. The Curling Jelly added natural moisture to Ariana’s hair and allowed movement until it dried into place.
“I love the natural moisture that the As I Am Curling Jelly gives,” Araxi said. “The Rice Water Collection is perfect for keeping hair light and smelling great. I’m thrilled with how this look turned out, and I’m honored to have been a part of Ariana’s Met Gala experience.”
The Met Gala is known for its extravagant fashion and beauty looks, and Ariana Debose’s Met Gala hairstyle was no exception. With its cultural inspiration and unique style, her hair was a standout feature of the night.
