Anna Kendrick and Hailee Steinfeld, stars of the much anticipated “Pitch Perfect 2,” were “Belle of the Ball” beautiful at the May 5th Met Gala. Both beauties opted for classic black and white ensembles, and Celebrity Stylist Matthew Monzon was the maestro behind the looks of these two young hot Hollywood stars!

Matthew shared his inspiration for the effortlessly chic styles that perfectly complemented the ladies classic gowns. “For Anna, I was definitely inspired by Audrey Hepburn, but wanted to take a more modern spin by creating a look that was more structured and sleek.” For Hailee’s look, Matthew took cues from the star’s dress, taking into account the high neckline and full skirt. “[Hailee] had buttons all the way up her back and a high neckline, so I wanted to pull her hair up into a bun that was a little tighter and more structured to really pull together the full look.”

For Anna’s structured modern French twist:
  1. Spray Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection Spray throughout the hair to protect from heat styling 
  2. Take two pumps of Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter Smooth & Creamy Hair Milk and comb through the hair from root to tip 
  3. Blow-dry the hair using a large round brush to give it a slight bend at the ends 
  4. Once the hair is dry, spray Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo throughout the hair to add a boost of volume and texture
  5. Create a deep side part on the right and sweep the hair towards the left side, placing bobby pins from the nape of the neck to the crown to hold the French twist 
  6. Then, take all of the hair that’s now on the left side and roll it into itself and secure with hair-pins 
  7. Spray the Herbal Essences Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray to keep the look in place 
  8. Finish with the Herbal Essences Naked Sheer Shine Mist to seal the style with a glossy shine for the red carpet

Here’s how to get Hailee’s flawless sleek chignon:
  1. Spray Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection Spray throughout the hair to protect from heat styling
  2. Take a quarter size amount of Herbal Essences NakedVolumizing Soufflé and run through hair from root to tip to give hair a boost of lightweight volume
  3. Blow-dry the hair with a large paddle brush to create a smooth but voluminous finish
  4. Create a straight center part and pull the hair over the top of her ears into two ponytails side by side at the nape of the neck
  5. Twist the hair of one ponytail somewhat flat to the head and start to pin the bun
  6. Continue to twist and pin the other ponytail, wrapping the hair around the other bun while still maintaining a flatter shape
  7. Finish with the Herbal Essences Set Me Up Medium Hold Hairspray to lock in the style while still leaving hair soft and shiny
