Nail the dreamy look!

It's safe to say that L'Oreal Professionnel ambassador Hailey Baldwin pulled out all the beauty stops at this year's Met Gala. Here's exactly how you can recreate her messy, yet, edgy topknot for your next big event!

On fashion's big night out, there's no doubt that all eyes are on the stunning gowns and ensembles gracing the red carpet. Equally important as the eye-catching outfits, however, are the hair and makeup looks to match. One of our favorites of the night? L'Oreal Professionnel ambassador Hailey Baldwin's romantic topknot styled by Celebrity Hairstylist Florido Basallo of Nine Zero One Salon. It's gorgeous, yes, but the look is also super versatile-perfect for a wide range of events, including weddings, work parties, or nights out on the town. Best of all, you can easily recreate the look at home (or at the salon) using L'Oreal Professionnel products. Keep reading to discover how to nab Hailey Baldwin's exact Met Gala 2017 hairstyle in five easy steps!

Step One

While hair is slightly damp, spread a quarter-sized dollop of L'Oreal Professionnel Dual Stylers Sleek & Swing through the tresses. Follow with a straight blow out.

Step Two

Next, take medium-sized sections of the hair and spray L'Oreal Professionnel Infinium 4 hairspray throughout. Comb and press the hair with a flat iron to get sleek, straight strands.

Step Three

Once your hair is straight, brush it into a high ponytail. To keep the strands looking sleek and sculpted, apply a smoothing hair gel-like L'Oreal Professionnel Or Graphic modelling gel-to the sides and back of the ponytail.

Step Four

Loop and tuck the rest of the hair into a messy knot. Pin the pieces to secure in place. Use as many pins as needed.

Step Five

Once done, seal the deal with a few spritzes of L'Oreal Professionnel Extreme Lacquer hairspray. For extra flair, slide on a bejeweled mini veil or headband. Voila-you're red-carpet ready!
