Get the Look: Taraji P. Henson’s 2015 Met Gala Hair in 5 Simple Steps

Move over Oreo, Taraji P. Henson is America’s new favorite “Cookie!”

And while Taraji wasn’t channeling her popular “Empire” character at last night’s Met Gala, she still managed to turn heads with her flowing long locks.

Dressed in a gorgeous black-and-white Balenciaga  gown, Taraji looked stunning—but, her silky smooth ‘do hair took centerstage.

To show off Taraji’s eye-catching earrings, Balenciaga designer Alexander Wang served as the inspiration for the style. “He envisioned a sleek, clean and long look to showcase her amazing earrings,” said celebrity stylist Ursula Stephen who created the winning look. “I kept it modern by creating a short center part and tucked the hair behind her ears.”

Ursula used Motions products, which is one of my go-to hair care lines of late.

Check out these five simple steps to get Taraji’s show-stopping style:

*Start by prepping hair with the Motions Straight Finish Heat Styled System for a sleek look that won’t harm natural curls

*Create a severe center part and tame fly-aways with the Motions Radiating Hair Gloss then divide hair into small sections and flat iron from root to tip


*Apply Motions Light Hold Working Spritz to the two front sections, then comb behind the ear and secure underneath with bobby pins
