Effortlessly piece-y, expertly tousled, and surrounded by soft, lavender-hued flower petals, Camila Cabello’s Met Gala 2022 hairstyle — a floral-accented topknot — is the ultimate spring look.
At this year’s star-studded event, Cabello’s entire look was designed with the environment in mind: From up-cycled fabrics in her Prabal Gurung gown to the flowers surrounding her updo, nature took center stage. While the singer’s makeup was relatively minimal (albeit beautifully flushed and glowing), it was her hair that seriously stunned. The perfectly-executed topknot, complete with face-framing tendrils, was created by her hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons, who — luckily for us —shared deets on how he nailed the look (it’s already been added to my bridal mood board, FWIW).
Using exclusively Andrew Fitzsimons Haircare products (which, conveniently, can be shopped at your nearest Ulta), Fitzsimons started by dampening Cabello’s brunette strands before coating her ends with a leave-in conditioner. Next, he softly spritzed her hair with both a wave spray and hair texturized before loosely gathering and twisting it into a perfectly messy bun at the top of her crown, which he secured with bobby pins. Finally, he pulled out a few front pieces of hair to softly frame her face just before setting the look with a strong-hold hairspray as well as a bit of shine spray to top it off.
“When the dress arrived at her room, I saw the beautiful floral components and knew I wanted to work them into her hair in some capacity,” Fitzsimons shared in a statement. To do this, he actually asked designer Gurung for extra flowers from Cabello’s dress to place in her hair. “I tucked the flowers tactfully around the bun versus over the bun as I was inspired by how the flowers mimicked a ‘peek-a-boo’ effect on the dress itself.”
Consider this the perfect reason to accent your updos with flowers all summer long.
