The Tribeca Film Festival 2022 is well underway and we’ve been loving what we’ve seen so far, hair-wise. While the annual event may be about celebrating all of the highly anticipated independent films, it’s proving to be quite the stylish affair with a number of celebrities donning some truly incredible hair looks.

While many of this year’s attendees have totally wowed us in the hair department, none more so than Industry and Bodies, Bodies, Bodies star Myha’la Herrold. The actress attended Chanel’s annual Artist Dinner during the film festival on Monday, June 13 and we honestly can’t get enough of the ultra-sleek strands that she rocked at the event. Naturally, we had to call on her hairstylist Monae Everett to get the scoop on this undeniably chic look.

Everett, who has styled the likes of Tia Mowry, Brenda Song, and Yara Shahidi, shared exclusively with The Tease that the inspiration behind Herrold’s hair came from the French fashion house’s signature aesthetic. “My’hala and I collaborated on this hair look. We wanted to channel Chanel’s classic style and felt sleek and straight hair would complement the occasion,” she explained.

According to Everett, transforming Herrold’s thick, curly hair into this piecey, flipped-up look was actually super simple. 

To achieve this style, she began by adding the Biolage Hydrasource Daily Leave-In Cream for Dry Hair ($22.00) to Herrold’s hair for added hydration. Next, Everett used the Biolage Thermal Active Heat Protectant Spray ($19.00) —or her “secret weapon” as she likes to call it—as a heat protectant. After that, she layered in the Biolage Smooth Proof Serum ($22.00) to Herrold’s damp hair. 

With Herrold’s hair ready for styling, she blow-dryed her thick curly hair straight using a flat brush in an upward direction to add volume and movement. Once dry, she created one-inch sections and used a tourmaline flat iron to flip the ends of the hair awry from the head. For Herrold’s fringe, Everett made sure to smooth the hair under. Finally, after loosely tossling the hair, she set the style in place with the Biolage Styling Complete Control Spray ($19.00).
