The Met Gala 2018 kicked off without a hitch—and while most of the focus was on the event’s controversial “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and The Catholic Imagination” theme, we couldn’t help but take notice of the mens’ standout hairstyles on the red carpet. From platinum hues to throwback cuts, check out the night’s top trending looks that promise to score major points during the summer months.


Jaden Smith’s Blonde Shade



Smith’s white, wool and camel Louis Vuitton suit took a backseat to the performer’s golden strands. The sunny shade read high fashion with a cool, modern edge, cementing the hue as a major trend for the season ahead.


Bradley Cooper’s Hair Curtains

While most throwback trends should stay in their original decade, we have to say there’s something about Cooper’s draping locks that just works. The longer length and free-flowing style has a fresh, youthful appeal that makes it perfect for the warmer months. Plus, it can easily be slicked back for a sleeker look on formal occasions.


Nick Jonas’ Boyish Fade

Equal parts youthful and polished, Jonas’ fresh fade has an old-school feel that added an unexpected spin to the performer’s silk brocade tuxedo. A cool take on the classic fade, the clean look allows for a little length on top, making it a great option for guys looking to grow out a buzzcut.


Diplo’s gritty mullet

Think your hair is too long to slick back? Think again! The DJ proved that the mullet may be making its long-awaited return. The platinum style gave a “surfer-meets-’80s rockstar” feel to Diplo’s minimalist white tuxedo, adding a definite edge to his muted look.
