Why We Love It:

Mullets are seriously on-trend and Timothee Chalamet‘s curly hair look at the Met Gala is a great way to give it a go – without going the full 80s George Michael.

Super flattering if you’re blessed with hair like Mr C, this really showcases your hair’s natural movement. But the key to this is all in the styling. (Check out our How To below)

If you’re blessed with curly hair but feel limited with what looks you can have, Timothée is a great example of someone who works with his curls and always comes out winning. (Check out his longer look here)

The key? Find a stylist who truly understands curly hair.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Ask for a softly graduated modern mullet – longer on top, a little slightly shorter at sides, with a little, not too much, length at the back.
  • Get your stylist to get rid of any heaviness on the top and sides, and to add gentle layers to help the hair sit better.

Get The Look

  • Gently towel dry. Don’t rub or it’ll encourage frizz – instead gently squeeze the moisture out with your towel.
  • Coat your hair evenly with clementine-sized blob of volumising product using your fingers. Don’t brush your hair
  • Use a hairdryer on low speed/medium heat, and ensure you use the diffuser attachment, which spreads out the air flow to help the curls stay structured. Gently move it around with your fingers as you dry it all over to enhance the curl.
  • For a bit of texture and curl separation, take a small amount of medium hold pliable paste. You can build it up gradually if you need more. Rub it between your fingers first to warm it up and make it easier to apply, then gently tousle your hair throughout with it, and mould your fringe into a subtle quiff.
