The Met Gala: A Glamorous Affair of Fashion and Art

The Met Gala, short for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, is an annual fundraising event that marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Often referred to as "the party of the year," the Met Gala brings together some of the most influential figures from the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and culture for a night of high fashion, creativity, and philanthropy.

What is the Met Gala?

First established in 1948, the Met Gala has evolved into one of the most prestigious events in the fashion calendar. Each year, the gala follows a specific theme, which sets the tone for the evening's attire and serves as the inspiration for the Costume Institute's annual exhibition. Guests are expected to interpret the theme in their fashion choices, resulting in some of the most avant-garde and memorable red carpet looks of the year. This year’s theme was The Garden of Time. 

This year’s gala was chaired by Vogue's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, along with Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth and Bad Bunny. Tickets to the event are highly coveted, with prices reaching tens of thousands of dollars per seat. The proceeds from the gala go towards supporting the Costume Institute's exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational programs.

Harris Reed's 2024 Met Gala Hair: A Testament to Creativity and Collaboration

At the Met Gala 2024, British-American designer Harris Reed stunned attendees with not only his breathtaking ensemble but also with a hair look that was both striking and meticulously crafted by some of our incredible Experts at the Josh Wood Atelier. Reed's hair, styled on the day by Master Stylist Pete Burkill, was a focal point of their overall look, adding an extra layer of drama and elegance to the ensemble.

To achieve Harris Reed's show-stopping hairstyle, hair extensions played a crucial role. Sophie Thomas, our very own hair extension specialist, applied customised 30 inches of Great Lengths mini bonds to seamlessly blend with Reed's natural hair. The extensions provided length, volume, and versatility, allowing for the creation of intricate styles that complemented Reed's avant-garde aesthetic.

Issie Churcher, Master Colourist, was responsible for creating the perfect hue to blend with Harris Reed's natural hair colour. The result was a gorgeous copper tone that added warmth and depth to the overall look, enhancing Reed's features and completing the ensemble with a touch of glamour.

Recreate Harris Reed's Met Gala hair look at home by applying Josh Wood Colour Copper Gold Gloss which will not only give you that incredible copper tone but also add high shine. Additionally, booking a consultation with Sophie at the Josh Wood Atelier can provide you with Great Lengths tapes that can be customised and clipped in and out at home, allowing for easy and versatile styling options.
