The hair at the 2024 Met Gala was in a league all its own. What is it about a dreamy theme that makes manes take center stage? Perhaps it’s the transformative nature of hair, or its ability to immediately communicate a sense of otherworldliness. Regardless, Met attendees leaned into the power of length—whether worn extra-long, shorn, or manipulated into an intricate updo.

First came the cadre of Lady Godiva waves, with everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kendall Jenner to Zoe Saldana opting for some serious extension. Amanda Seyfried’s vining, leaf-bedecked silver coiffure was a counter to Kim Kardashian’s beach-bound blanch, with each style icy and irreverent in its own way. The evening’s themes of birth and decay inspired Chloe Sevigny’s Victorian “mourning hair,” an ornamental updo of polished braids looped into bows and blooms. Iris Law’s flippy wet-look pixie played up her spritely features (and stylized eyebrows), while Gwendoline Christie’s cloud of peroxide was an all-out ode to her Met-ready Margiela. In the retro-made-new camp, Hari Nef opted for a burgundy bouffant updo featuring a geometric frame, as Kaia Gerber brunette brush-up leapt straight out of the ’60s.

For Sydney Sweeney, the Met steps offered an opportunity to test-drive an alter ego, her usual buoyant blonde exchanged for a full-fringed onyx shag. And Zendaya’s last look of the evening featured a bouquet of a headpiece—no, really, a literal bouquet.

Here, the best Met Gala hairstyles.
