At a huge fashion event like the Met Ball (The Costume Institute Gala), the hair often takes a back seat to the dress. The truth is: without the hair, the best dress could turn into the worst dressed. This year, some of the biggest names in Hollywood turned back time to the 1940s when the only Veronica on anyone’s lips was Lake.
A key feature of this look was the volume and the deep side part. It is important to use a volumizing product, like Samy Fat Hair Amplifying Mousse ($4.82), to achieve the utmost volume. To get the placement of the part perfect try to match the part to the middle of your eyebrow. Use a comb to make sure the part is straight.

The next step is creating the curl. Take a large barrel brush and blow-dry your hair until it is completely dry. At this point, separate the hair into two-inch sections and wrap each around a medium to large size hot roller. Let it sit for about ten minutes and then release. Brush out those curls and move all of your hair to the opposite side of the part. Use any type of light gel to help hair stay toward that side. The last step is to finish off the look with some hairspray for hold and any type of shine mist to create that glossy finish.
No matter what the dress, this hairstyle will make you Met-Ball ready in no time!
