The Met Gala 2021 – Best Hair Edit

We at Iles Formula are very proud to work alongside some of the best freelancers and salons in the business of hair.

The 2021 Met Ball was no exception. The annual Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world’s equivalent of, let’s say, the Oscars. Held at its usual location: The Metropolitan Museum of Art was postponed to September rather than its usual first Monday in May due to the pandemic. This year’s theme was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” and “In America: An Anthology of Fashion.” 

We have selected work the stylists and artists that support and use Iles Formula. Keep scrolling to discover who they are: The Met Gala 2021 – Best Hair Edit.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish had her supercut and color done by Benjamin Salon LA  They transformed her hair into a “Monroe” look for her extravagant Oscar De La Renta tulle gown. Benjamin Salon is a great supporter of all the Iles Formulas products.  You can find them in-house at the salon for purchase.





Madonna never ceases to shock us with her provocative style. This classic but sensual textured hairstyle was produced by an Iles Formula Ambassador Salon: Andy LeCompte Salon by Andy LeCompte himself. He worked alongside another of our Iles Formula supporters – wig and extension expert: Merria Dearman. Both Andy and Merria stock and use Iles Formula in their salons.


Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld wearing Iris Van Irpin was coiffed by Iles Formula supporter, Merria Dearman(@merriadearman). Her locks were worked on by both Merria and hairdresser, Ruslan Nureyev. Above all, the combination of this sharp graphic bob was perfect against her structured but delicate gown.



Irina Shayk

So everyone is asking… Did Irina Shayk chop off her locks for the Met Gala Ball? I guess the secret lies with Iles Formula supporter hairdresser and expert: Merria Dearman




For her Met Gala entrance, Vittoria was transformed from a brunette to a blonde. The color was beautifully executed by champion colorist and Iles Formula supporter, Victoria Hunter (also the colorist for Beyonce amongst others) – Whittemore House Salon NYC.

The Whittemore House Hair Paint is famous for its deliverance of lived-in color. Lived-in colors allow a major color change to be achieved whilst looking very natural. A perfect fit for her understated chic Michael Kors dress and exquisite Bulgari jewelry. See our post yesterday on Instagram @ilesformula_hair to see Vittoria as a brunette. We adore the blonde,what about you?


Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez looked spectacular with her sauvage ponytail coiffed by one of our company’s loyal supporters, freelance celebrity hairdresser Lorenzo Martin, who is an avid user of the Iles Formula Finishing Serum.
