How To Recreate Serena Williams' MET Gala Look

The 2019 MET Gala came to play with dramatic showings from the world's top design houses.

From jaw-dropping entrances to looks that were more than lit, there was no shortage of glam at the Camp themed soiree. Channeling Susan Sontag's Notes on 'Camp' as this year's over-the-top and avant garde theme, interpretations ranged across the carpet.


Met Gala co-chair Serena Williams sported a soft, textured hairstyle that accompanied the excitement of her campy Versace gown perfectly. The look was topped off with Off-White x Nike sneakers by Virgil Abloh



FHI Heat's newly released titanium tools infused with magnesium were used by celebrity stylist Nai'vasha while working on Serena's tresses.

Our breakthrough blend of titanium and magnesium heats up faster, maintains temperature throughout passes, and produces more negative ions. The result is shiny, healthy, hydrated hair and greater frizz control. 

Here's a breakdown of how to recreate the MET Gala look by Nai'vasha.


1. I sectioned Serena’s tresses with my FHI T-Rex Clips


2. Detangled her hair in quadrants using my FHI UnBrush


3. I then smoothed her hair on low heat so I wouldn’t lose the wavy texture with the FHI Titanium flat iron
