Long hair is replacing the bob as a trend hairstyle: From Kim Kardashian to Cara Delevingne, at the Met Gala 2021, the stars wore their hair in excess length.
Long hair is the trending hairstyle of the stars at the Met Gala 2021
If we could look at the mood boards of Rosalía, Camila Cabello, Cara Delevingne, or Lourdes Leon, it is very likely that Cher's legendary mermaid mane is one of her styling wishes. At least the looks on the red carpet of the Met Gala 2021 suggest Extra-long hair up to the waist - in many cases, thanks to extensions - was very present at the Met Gala.
While there was basically a bit of all style - not to mention Emma Chamberlain's collarbone-length hair - the Cher-inspired long hair was arguably the common denominator of many beauty looks on the red carpet. Whether in a natural variant with loose hair and a pronounced middle parting, which gives the style more personality or in updos with a ponytail, the apparently endlessly long (and sometimes impractical) hair has won the day and has displaced all other hairstyles from the Olympus of trends .
After seeing the pictures of all of the supermodels showing off their extra-long hair, we quickly start fantasizing about growing our hair out (or resorting to the practical benefits of extensions like Kim Kardashian did to showcasing their bondage design that everyone is talking about). Your stylist, Chris Appleton, told us on Instagram how such a look is created step by step. And yes, in addition to various hairsprays that add shine to her hair, Kim's mane has been lengthened a few inches with extensions.
