Kristen Stewart stepped out on the red carpet last night for the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in a sequined J. Mendel Spring 2012 gown. Although she was working that thigh high slit, her makeup was a little too heavy for the event. It’s a good thing Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergel was able to tame her typically messy, matted-down mane. See how to get the look after the jump.
Inspiration: Adir was inspired to create an up-do that felt like Kristen’s usual tousled, messy hair style with a touch of rockabilly class. The outcome was equally edgy and romantic.
How To Get the Look: Adir began by applying Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel to the roots of the hair to build texture. He then applied Fekkai Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray throughout the rest of the hair and rough dried it to create a beachy base for the up-do. Adir then took random pieces and created standard braids, fishtail braids and twists throughout the hair in various sizes, leaving the very top of the hair loose. He then took all of the hair, except the loose bit, and knotted and twisted it to create an up-do. Hairpins gave the illusion of a very undone look. To finalize, Adir backcombed the front of the hair to add volume, pushed it back and pinned it in place. He secured the look by spraying with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray.
