How To Get Rihanna’s Hairstyle

Who created Rihanna‘s hairstyle at the Met Gala 2021?

For the epic return of the Met Gala 2021, Rihanna wore a much-anticipated look created by celebrity hair artist Yusef Williams. He has been styling Rihanna’s locks since 2008.

Yousef emphasized a “couture streetwear” style that could well trend this winter season. “I decided to combine cornrows and romantic tendrils for a couture/streetwear vibe,” he shares. The look was topped with a beanie and a hint of a jeweled scull cap showcasing the loose, flowing tendrils.

What products were used for Rihanna’s Met Galal hair?

Yusef used British M K-Beauty luxury salon products, the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, and Y by Yusef brushes to create the look. “Scalp and hair wellness is important,” he explains. “I started with gentle new British M Kombucha Shampoo to cleanse and nourish hair and used scalp-friendly new British M Kombucha Mask (with Kombucha, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Propolis, and Royal Jelly) for longer-lasting hydration.”

British M Annatto Hair Oil and Hydrate Hair Butter offer weightless moisture and control, which can be used to prep braids. The heat from the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer helped to quickly penetrate these intensely nourishing products deeper into braids.

British M Annatto Hair Oil was applied to finished braids for natural-looking shine and British M Hard Tailor Spray finished the look.

How can I create the look at home?
