Met Gala 2013: Faux-hawks – The A-list Way To Do Punk

Many of the Met Gala’s star attendees bypassed the punk theme last night in favour of couture. But plenty of A-listers paid homage to the ‘From Chaos to Couture’ theme with a faux-hawk hair do.

January Jones, Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Anne Hathaway (who was debuting a new blonde crop) and Miley Cyrus were just a handful of the stars rocking the do – and props to Sarah Jessica-Parker too for rocking an actual Mohawk hat by Philip Treacy.

The best thing about the trend is you can go as statement or as subtle as you like. Fancy channeling Alicia Keys’ side swept do? Simply part your hair to the side and apply with strong holding mousse. Or if you want to go a bit more out there, why not back comb your bouffant into a quiff using hair spray to hold it firmly in place à la Jennifer Lopez.

Now we admit, get it wrong and you could end up looking like Edward Scissor hands, so for the best results book in an appointment at the hairdressers!
