Steal Her Hair-Style: Kristen Stewart’s Hair-Do!
Kristen Stewart is slowly but surely creeping back into fans hearts, well the fashionista fans at least.
Gradually building up her public appearances since her month-long absence from the public eye, its like her stylist (does she even have a stylist?) has carefully chosen the perfect ‘can do no wrong’ looks! From her feminine but sexy Toronto Film Festival dress (SEE HERE) which even the shyest fashion-lover cannot find fault with, to last night’s funky casual ‘city look’, which she donned for another promotional event in New York.
BUT what I (Sam) love most about this look, is her HAIR, we are so used to seeing Kristens locks hanging loosely, almost effortlessly (in the literal term) in her face … It’s cool to see her pull it back once in awhile and show off her flawless skin and amazing cheekbones.
This ‘quiffed’ style has inspired me recreate on my own hair … SO im going to attempt a little ‘Step by Step’ guide in lay-mans terms ..
What you need: Back-combing brush or fine-tooth comb, bottle of hairspray, bobbypins
1) Start by brushing your hair completely through, no knots
2) Section your hair into two (or three parts), starting from front, then middle, then back, try giving the front part the most hair as this is where you will concentrate the most of the volume, you can either tie each section with a bobbin or grip, but the idea is so they don’t get mixed together
3) Take your front ‘section’ and flip it all forward into your face, brush through, then take a strip of hair from the back of this section and start back-combing from the root upwards, repeat in small strips til you reach the front of your head. Mist each section with hairspray as you go along. Don’t worry about it looking ‘Jedward’-esque as you can smooth it down to the desired height
4) Using your fingers (for a more tousled, messy quiff) brush the hair back towards the second ‘section’ then pin with bobby pins … you may need to pin any stray pieces at the side, depending on wether you have layers at the front of your hair or not.
If you have long hair and it is hanging at the back, that’s okay, it just adds to the ‘mo-hawk’ look and can run into the next section.
5) Thats the hardest part over, the second section usually just consists of the hair on the side of your head and whatever hangs from the top, brush the side pieces in to join the top section I usually back-comb, twist & pin these pieces into a funky structure.
The idea is to make it look like one giant quiff running over your head… Again the height depends on you, brush down for desired height
6) If you’ve made three sections you can let the 3rd section hang free …
This style can be as neat or as messy as you like, as long as the three sections all join in as one quiff. (You can see in the above pic how its three pieces of hair all pinned back to the centre of her head running down)
I hope you will try and enjoy this hair style,
It is a style that can be taken from day to night and once you get the hang of, can be a really funky alternative to a ‘pony tail’
