Met Ball Beauty: Get Lupita Nyong’o’s “French Roll”

MET Ball Beauty: Get The Look - Lupita Nyong'oLupita Nyong’o‘s glittering emerald beaded PRADA dress wasn’t the only topic of fashionable discussion the following morning after this year’s Met Gala. People all over the world couldn’t stop chattering about the eggplant purple twisted ‘do that the Oscar winner surrounded with a Cartier emerald satin and diamond headband.

Ted Gibson–aka the hairstyling magician behind some of your favorite red carpet looks, has been working with the “12 Years A Slave” actress regularly and tells The Fashion Court how he helped Lupita achieve what he refers to as a ‘French roll meets American style’.

“This woman is so inspiring to me! After seeing her Prada dress and Cartier headpiece I knew I had to make her hair something special,”
Ted explained. “I love this French roll because it has a regal feel to it. To make the look modern I colored her hair in a purple hue to compliment the green feathers and stones in the dress.”

To achieve the look, Ted turned to the Ultimate Shine products from his signature beauty line that he then rubbed into Lupita’s hair. “As always, I finished off the look with holding spray to keep it all in place. Lupita proves that no matter your hair texture, color, or length – hair is art!”

Special thanks to Ted Gibson!

It’s rare that we see ASHLEY GREENE break from her very classic approach to style and beauty, but the “Twilight” star embraced her inner rock-star at the 9th annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York City when she paired a midnight  lacy Wes Gordon outfit with intense onyx-black smoky eyes and a layered mane of blooming curls.

Ashley’s mane man Ted Gibson assisted in getting her ready by perfecting those tendrils!

“Tousled textured hair is the look for Ashley. I cut her hair shoulder length a couple of weeks ago and clipped it to mostly one length with a little layering to create a slight bit of softness.

To get this tousled style for Ashley, I used Build It Blow Drying Agent on dry hair using my fingers twirling around until it was all dry. This creates a rock ‘n roll texture that isn’t considered pretty—just edgy, then I took a 1/2 inch iron all over the entire head to give it that “I’m too cool to care” vibe. | continue reading..
