2012 MET Ball Gala hair: Marion Cotillard and Uma Thurman

Celebrity hair stylist Robert Vetica was inspired by the sci-fi thriller, Blade Runner, for Marion Cotillard‘s look. The chic modern look featured short bangs with smoothed hair pulled back into a loose, deconstructed French twist.

1. First, Vetica blow-dried hair smooth with a large round brush for natural volume.
2. Then he pulled all the hair to the back and created a loose French twist.
3. Next, he scrunched and deconstructed the texture of the twist with his fingers and then pinned the effect in place.
4. He finished off by spraying Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong on the entire style for a natural-looking hold.

Since Uma Thurman is pregnant, celebrity stylist David Babaii used eco-friendly and cruelty free hair products from IT&LY HAIRFASHION’s Purity Design Line to create her look.

[1] Babaii first washed hair with IT&LY Pure Shampoo and Conditioner.
[2] He then applied a small amount of IT&LY Pure Water Drops to naturally hydrate and add shine to the hair.
[3] Next, he applied IT&LY Pure Style Mousse Strong for hold and volume, paying more attention to the roots and ends.
[4] Then he blow-dried hair with a large round brush at the root area for lift, switching to a large paddle brush to smooth the rest of the hair.
[5] When her hair was dry, Babaii made a side part and set hair with White Sands Velcro Strips (instead of conventional hot rollers), spraying each section with IT&LY Pure Texture.
[6] After makeup was applied, he removed the Velcro Strips and gently brushed hair taking the sides and top to create a half-up/half-down look and securing with a decorative clip.
