GET THE LOOK: Met Gala Hair Janelle Monae

Celebrity hairstylist Nikki Nelms created Janelle Monae's Met Gala hairstyle using Mielle Organics.

Inspiration - Her super tall, structural top knot was inspired by her exaggerated tweed tuxedo. I made a secure ponytail base to start then added wire and wrapped the hair around to create the height and structure. Throughout the updo, I pulled pieces out and re-wrapped into knots around the pre-wrapped hair to add dimension and depth. The final look led to a tall cylinder like structure.

We really wanted to make this look special since this will be the first Met Gala where her hair will be visible since 2017.

Prep for Janelle’s 2023 Met Gala hairstyle started with a calming wash using the Mielle Pomegranate & Honey Moisturizing and Detangling Shampooand Conditioner. This shampoo works into a luxurious lather and has an amazing scent. It cleans without stripping away moisture and pre-detangles curly hair, while the conditioner helps to achieve shiny, smooth-to-the-touch hair.

Once towel dried, I misted her hair with Mielle’s White Peony Leave-In Conditioner,and then I followed with the Mielle Mongongo Oil Thermal & Heat Protectant Spray before blow drying.

To style, I used the Mielle Avocado & Tamanu Anti-Frizz Stay Straight Serum before lightly straightening the hair. After the hair was up and sleek, I applied the Mielle Rice Water & Aloe Braid Gel. It was perfect to get a nice smooth base braid. I finished with the Pomegranate & Honey Blend Super Hold Edge Gel to get those edges laid down.
