DIY: Emily Blunt’s “Mohawk” at the 2013 Met Gala

With a theme like “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” you were certain to see some eye-catching looks at last night’s 2013 Met Gala.  Emily Blunt, donned in a black Carolina Herrera front keyhole gown, turned heads with her hot-pink eye makeup and edgy twisted mohawk updo.

For Blunt’s punk rock look last night, celeb hairstylist Laini Reeves said, "I wanted to pay homage to the theme of the evening, while still managing to keep her look not too over the top.”  She created the soft Mohawk using KMS® California Hair Care.  Here’s the step-by-step:

Step 1: First, Laini began by applying KMS® California TAMEFRIZZ® taming creme ($15.50) to wet hair. She then blew the hair dry and pulled it into a ponytail that started on the top of her head.

Step 2: Then, Laini sprayed the hair with KMS® California HAIRPLAY® makeover spray ($17.99) to keep it smooth. Next, she braided the ponytail, secured the end and roughed it up a bit to give it a smoother, less structured look.

Step 3: Laini then took the braid and pulled it forward, securing it on the front hairline, giving it the appearance of a braided Mohawk. She finished the look by spraying KMS® California HAIRSTAY® maximum hold spray ($16.99).
