The Best Men’s Hair Looks at The Met Gala 2024

Published 09th May 2024 by Josie Jackson

The first Monday in May can only mean one thing: the return of the Met Gala. Honouring the theme “The Garden of Time”, we got to see the best trending fashions of the moment. However, we’re here to home in on our favourite male hair looks dominating the green carpet this year…

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X’s bold hair look this year not only complemented his Raul Lopez suit, but managed to make a statement on its own, making this bleached buzz cut the perfect striking style for your clients, on and off the red carpet.

Alton Mason

The spotlight was stolen by Alton Mason as he sported thick cornrows, blending into a full-face hair net and sleek, minimalistic goatee, perfected by Starsha Appling.

Leon Bridges

This soft, shapely style worn by Leon Bridges perfectly complements the sharp cut of his Willy Chavarria suit.

Jon Batiste

Jon Batiste’s short dreads and clean-cut goatee created a relaxed twist to his formal Dunhill attire.

Gustav Witzoe

Gustav Witzoe stood out with an ethereal head piece, crowning his perfectly sculpted ‘Prince Charming curls’ by Mark Alan.

While the Met Gala is arguably the biggest night in fashion, the Modern Barber Awards is the place to be for those passionate about our industry. If you’ve not booked your tickets for this year, why not check out these three convincing reasons to attend?
