This red-carpet approved hair trend is our latest obsession:
It’s giving us grown-up 90s glamour.
Beauty experts predict the biggest hair, make-up and skincare trends for 2021While full-blown diamante lengths a la Saweetie might not be your go-to everyday look, the great thing about this trend is that you can dial it up or pare it back, depending on your preference. Keys’ classic Swarovski crystal-encrusted chignon bun, which her stylist called “a royal ode to classic American glamour,” would be the perfect complement to an understated outfit, whereas Osaka’s artful bow, set with ruby red gemstones provides inspiration for our bolder fashion moments.
But whichever way you choose to wear them, it seems that rhinestones, diamantes and all things jewel-encrusted are back in a big way – and we couldn’t be happier.The best hair jewel looksAlicia Keys at the Met Gala 2021Alicia Keys served up some understated glamour in a slicked back, crystal-encrusted low bun

Naomi Osaka at the Met Gala 2021Osaka’s hairstylist Martin-Christopher Harper created Osaka’s striking look, which featured a giant bow-shaped hair sculpture complete with glistening red jewels, with Dyson and NatureLab Tokyo Haircare and Jennifer Behr crystals.
He also explained his inspiration, writing on Instagram: “When I began to think of this project and its layers it was important for me to bridge their cultures and ethnicities we often are asked at times to pick and choose whom or how we represent (speaking from experience). In this realization of the #metgala the theme is really inclusion, awareness and the now.”
