Our Favorite Met Gala 2022 Hair Moments

The first Monday in May has arrived, and you know what that means—it’s Met Gala day. Otherwise known as fashion’s biggest night. Guests go all out on the carpet, doing their best to adhere to the theme for the evening. This year’s theme happens to be In America: An Anthology of Fashion. If you’ve been paying attention, you may think that rings a bell. And it should, given last year’s theme was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion. We can’t tell you what the difference is, but we can tell you that for this year’s event, stars were asked to don their best Gilded Glamour garb. But it’s not just the fashion we pay attention to. As hair people, we’re all about how the elite style their strands. Scroll below to discover our favorite Met Gala hair moments of 2022 below!
