The Met Gala has been and gone, giving us our yearly fix of all things fashion, beauty and celebs - and the 2022 edition was nothing short of fabulous. This year's standout celeb? Kim Kardashian flaunting Marilyn Monroe's $4.8 million 'Happy Birthday Mr. President' dress. Iconic.

Slaying the 2022 theme of "Gilded Glamour", Kim K arrived in the gorgeous beaded gown and perfectly slicked back, platinum blonde hair. Without a stray hair in sight, it's safe to say we were a little envious of Kim's perfect bun. The secret behind it? A £15 hair spray.

Kim's hairdresser Chris Appleton spilt all the deets of the reality queen's updo, giving us an insider look at every product used, including the Color Wow Pop & Lock High Gloss Finish (£15.60) for that stunning Hollywood shine.

Color Wow Pop + Lock Frizz Control + Glossing Serum

The spray is known to deliver shiny, radiant hair, thanks to its conditioning and radiance-reviving properties. It prevents dullness, fading and provides superior hydration to leave your locks looking incredibly soft and red carpet-worthy. We mean, what more could you want?

Other key products used for Kim's look include the Color Wow Color Control Toning and Styling Foam (£14), the Color Wow Extra-Mist-Ical Spray (£24) as well as the Color Wow Dream Coat Spray (£22.10) that Appleton swears by.

Speaking on the inspo for Kim's look, Chris said: “Marilyn was the idea, but I wanted Kim to look like Kim, not a look-alike of Marilyn. The hair look was simple to highlight the platinum colour with a really simple bun, giving the hair colour and dress the attention.” Nailed it, tbh.
