Conclusion

In many ways, this year’s Met Gala celebrated old Hollywood glamour, and the beauty looks reflected that.

Many of the looks were classic but with modern twists and included red lips, smoky eyes, dramatic eyelashes, and hair pinned up or slicked back with a side part.

This combination of retro-glamour and modern appeal is only bound to inspire the hair trends we will see throughout the rest of 2022.

Stay tuned!
