Janelle Monae and Mary J. Blige did not come to play at the 2023 Met Gala. The two ladies rocked jaw-dropping looks that we are still talking about. And, of course, their hair was on point! Janelle Monae’s updo was one for the books, and Blige’s slick back ponytail flowed perfectly with her lace look.
For Janelle Monae’s hair, Nelms stated that the artist’s tweed tuxedo inspired her top knot. “I made a secure ponytail base to start, then added wire and wrapped the hair around to create the height and structure,” said Nelms.
Prep for Janelle’s 2023 Met Gala hairstyle started with a calming wash using the Mielle Pomegranate & Honey Moisturizing and Detangling Shampoo and Conditioner.
To style, Nelms used the Mielle Avocado & Tamanu Anti-Frizz Stay Straight Serum before lightly straightening the hair. After Janelle’s hair was up and sleek, Nelms applied the Mielle Rice Water & Aloe Braid Gel and finished with the Pomegranate & Honey Blend Super Hold Edge Gel to tame Janelle’s edges.Shop Now Shop Now Shop Now
