Serge Normant Punks-Out SJP at 2013 Met Ball

Posted on 05/07/2013

Last night's punk-themed Met Ball is the talk of the town today. Rocking everything from fishnets and spikes, to studs and leather, Hollywood's A-list took punk to the next level in a variety of interpretations.

One of the top head-turning looks was, hands down, Sarah Jessica Parker. Dawning a gorgeous floral ballgown from designer Giles Deacon, Parker's dress split down the center to reveal over-the-knee plaid tartan boots. The pièce de résistance? Her hair! Styled by b-glowing.com brand Serge Normant, and topped with a mohawk headpiece from Philip Treacy, SJP was embracing the theme from head to toe.

How did Serge Normant rock-out the diva's 'do? With his own products of course!

The acclaimed hair stylist began with Meta Silk Shampoo and Meta Velour Conditioner to create a bouncy, shiny canvas. Following with Meta Lush Volumizer for flexibility, Serge reached for his Meta Sheer Finishing Oil to establish invisible hold and weightless volume. Finally, after creating the complex updo of braids and twists, Normant finished the look with Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold for the big event.
