BTS Look: Cardi B Taps Tokyo Stylez To Create

On the 2022 Met Gala, Cardi B graced the red carpet in a custom Versace gown, dripping in gold. The outfit, highlighted with Medusa medallions and the Versace Greca encrusted in crystal ornate chains, required 20 people and about 1,300 hours to make, in keeping with an announcement from Versace.

The rapper/fashion icon, who was recently featured on the May/June 2022 cover of ESSENCE along together with her husband Offset and their children, accessorized her evening gown with regal hair fit for a queen. TRESemmé and Dyson products were used to create the look with the assistance of her long-time hairstylist, Tokyo Stylez.

“We were inspired by her gorgeous gold Versace dress that’s covered in gold chains to create this glamorous 90’s, voluminous updo,” Tokyo Stylez, explains in an announcement. 

Achieving perfection takes loads of work and in keeping with Stylez, there was a little bit snafu along the best way. “This look took quite a couple of hours since the wig was originally blonde,” she tells ESSENCE exclusively. “Truthfully, without my Dyson dryer and straightener, it saved my life because it might have been an excellent long dry time. We didn’t know looks until the last minute, so I needed to dye on the spot.”

Cardi’s hair was first prepped with TRESemmé Beauty-Full Strength Shampoo and Conditioner,” in keeping with Stylez, to create volume and stronger hair.

She then spritzed TRESemmé One Step Volume Mist from roots to ends for added bounce and adaptability. “It also helps impart strength, anti-static, light hold and warmth protection, and supply the proper pre-blow dry step,” she says. 

“Next, I rough blow-dried her hair using the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer skilled edition. After blow-drying, I used the Dyson Corrale™ straightener to smooth all the pieces out and create spiral curls throughout the hair, setting each curl with TRESemmé Total Volume Hair Spray to create hold while not sacrificing volume,” Stylez continues.

“Once the hair was set, I applied a touch of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum throughout for added shine. I pinned the curls right into a 90s-style updo and sprayed more hair spray throughout to secure your entire look and supply a long-lasting hold.”

It comes as no surprise that Cardi B was very involved in the method, but in keeping with Stylez, the Grammy award-winning rapper knows what she wants. “We were texting one another all night the day prior to Met. I’d send looks and he or she would either approve or disapprove,” she describes to us. “We at all times had to guage off feelings, so we make decisions in keeping with the mood of the Cardi and the team, but I feel we got here up with the proper solution to match the amazing Versace dress and it looked great.”

Stylez also mentioned that Cardi B wanted people to “gag” after they saw her on the red carpet. “Well, we said we wanted the group to gag and never only did they gag, but they were also speechless so I feel we set out and completed exactly what we desired to do.”

Well, Tokyo, mission completed!
