Red carpet ravishing! It was all about slicked back, sleek mermaid vibes for the newly brunette Lily James at the Met Gala in New York City this month. Kenra Professional products were used to style the “Pam & Tommy” star’s hair. The look was created by celebrity hairstylist Danilo Dixon, a longtime stylist to the stars.

“Lily wanted a sleek, contemporary Helmut Newton x mermaid look,” Danilo said. “Her hair was meant to appear as if she just came out of the water. Think Elizabeth Taylor exiting the pool in her jewels.”

To create this gilded-inspired effect designed to complement Lily James’ stunning, sheer, beaded Atelier Versace gown, Danilo used the following hair products.

Step 1: Kenra Platinum Pearl Detangler was used to detangle Lily’s mane post-wash for the sleekest look possible.

Step 2: Kenra Platinum Luxe One Leave-In was applied to the hair for extra moisture to achieve that wet, saturated look.

Step 3: Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray was used to protect her hair before blow drying.

Step 4: Kenra Platinum Silkening Heat Cream was applied to improve manageability and to provide heat protection, as well.

Step 5: Kenra Volume Mousse 12 and Kenra Volume Spray 25 were incorporated into the look for a little extra volume.

Step 6: Kenra Platinum Luxe Shine Oil was the finishing touch to add a luxuriant wet shine to the overall hairstyle.
