All the biggest names in celebville turned out in full force last night to celebrate the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Gala in New York (4th May), but it was Beyoncé's no fuss-high-glamour tresses that really caught our style savvy eye!

Rocking a sheer lace dress covered in multicoloured embellishment and huge suede platform heels, Bey teamed the dazzling look with tousled, glossy waves that were styled into an elegant ponytail - and we're eager to reveal how you can create the look!

5) Finally, take one section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the base, being sure to cover the clear hairbands you used to secure the pony. With the help of the Scunci Polka Matchbook Bobby Pins, secure the section of hair around the ponytail, using around two or three for a totally secure feel.
