Amanda Seyfried's Chinese tresses

Amanda Seyfried's hairstylist Danilo has given the lowdown on her Met Gala look.

Entertainment and fashion's most famous faces were out in force on Monday evening for the annual glitzy event held in New York.

Amanda stunned in a white Givenchy gown, with an elegant up do and dark berry lips completing the look. To help capture this year's theme of China: Through the Looking Glass, hairstylist Danilo created a sleek chignon for the actress.

"It was a collaboration between me, Amanda and [Givenchy's] Riccardo [Tisci]," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "In essence, it has a very Chinese couture feeling; it's very chic and clean.

"Amanda has fantastic hair, and tons of it."

While Amanda may have a team of experts on hand to help get her red carpet ready, Danilo says her Met Gala look is easy to recreate at home.

The hair guru advises using a hooked elastic to secure the style in place, as it creates a smooth look that sits close to the nape of the neck.

"A lot of women use regular elastics for that set up and they lose a lot of the look [the combing and direction of the hair] when they are folding the hair through it," he explained.

Leave in conditioner is also key to pull this look off.

"It's a bit of a holy water in the sense that it really reboots your hair and protects it, and also allows me to start shaping it in a new way. It's an easy way for women to change their hair," he added.
