5 Jaw-Dropping Hair Trends From the 2019 Met Gala You Can Wear IRL

Writer Susan Sontag's 'Notes on Camp' set the theme for this year's Met Gala, and in case you're thinking s'mores, allow this quote from Sontag to explain: "The essence of camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration. The hallmark of camp is the spirit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of 3 million feathers.” Think dramatic feathers, crystals, and flower crowns, all of which were out in full force on the Met Camp red carpet, accompanied by jaw-dropping hairstyles you can re-create at home. Keep scrolling for a round up of the best Met Gala hair trends that are actually wearable.

Jen Atkin also dressed Mrs. Bieber's blondie locks except the newlywed went for a retro polished pony à la Barbie, making a strong case for flaunting our scrunchie bow to fancy events.

If Veruschka had a Vegas residency, she'd look like Kendall Jenner did in her fabulous Fanta-orange feather-crystal dress. For a fun upgrade to your sleek bun, do as Jen Atkin and strategically gel fine strands of hair to your sideburns and forehead.
