Lupita 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!
