Wendy’s Style Squad discussed the hits and misses of the dramatic fashions at the Met Gala, but Wendy’s hairstylist Robyn Michele is here to discuss hair. This year’s Met Gala was Robyn’s first time creating a customized hair piece for TV host and producer Kéla Walker. There were so many standout looks from the Met Gala, and these were Robyn’s favorites.
J. Lo’s hair, styled by Lorenzo Martin, “perfectly supported the shoulders on her dress… which made it more pronounced.” Robyn celebrated J. Lo’s look as a perfect example of a glam squad working as a team. The hairstyle didn’t fight with the makeup, and the makeup didn’t fight with the actual dress.
“She went for it!” Hairstylist Rick Henry helped Katy achieve her over the top look without doing too much with her hair. Rick kept her short pixie cut giving it a tousled look that “embodied the feathers to the wings.”

Bella had legendary hair stylist Jen Atkin by her side for the Met Gala. Robyn admired the strong and severe look Bella served on the red carpet, especially her chic updo. Bella’s hair was pulled up into a bun and given loads of texture with a twist effect. The sleek, wet look went perfectly with Bella’s gown. Bella also wore a hairpiece that cascaded down her back and to the floor.
With a look inspired by Joan of Arc, hairstylist Ursula Stephen nailed Zendaya’s hair. It’s clear Ursula didn’t play it safe with Zendaya’s hair given the short blunt cut and red color, but she somehow managed to make it elegant.
Joan’s look was one of Robyn’s favorites. “It was everything. What Kayla MiChele did, in my opinion, was genius.” Joan wore a blunt cut ponytail that appears to be a blunt cut when looking at her straight on. “Kayla really did her thing.”
Last but certainly not least is Golden Barbie, Jasmine Sanders. At first glance, it might look like hairstylist Renda Attia had a simple situation going on in the front, but she showed us the light when she turned to walk away! It gave off the vibe of a fishtail braid, but it’s actually a fusion of twists, wraps, flowers, and actual gold. “This was completely well thought out. I think it complimented her dress exceptionally well… they made her hair the piece.”
