Frederic Fekkai’s Adir Abergel Transforms Kristen Stewart’s Tresses for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Premiere
TEXT, VIVIAN KELLY
Well, the countdown is almost at an end. What countdown? The one we're on at my place for the midnight showing of ECLIPSE, the 3rd of the 4 TWILIGHT films that made KRISTEN STEWART and Rob Pattinson the stars of the moment.
If you're a teenager or have a teenage daughter in your life, you're well aware that Kristen's style is one that many teens aspire to. So far, that's meant, low-key indie style - concert tees, Keds, Converse and skinny jeans.
Although a reluctant star, Kristen has finally embraced her celebrity status and looks beautiful and grown up on the Red Carpet.
She teamed-up with the king of sophisticated dos - Frederic Fekkai, to attend the premiere of ECLIPSE.
One of Frederic's team of stylists, ADIR ABERGEL, did a a soft take on the 1950’s pompadour. You girls who are going to prom or who are bridesmaids, take note. This is a great grown-up party look that doesn't look overly done - perfect for a young girl.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK: Here's the step by step info on how to get this look at home or you can simply give the directions to your favorite stylist so they get it just right.
STEP 1: Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip at the roots throughout the hair.
STEP 2: Using a round brush, blow-dry the hair away from the face, and place it in pin curls.
STEP 3: Allow the hair to cool before removing the pin curls.
STEP 4: Style the hair by hand raking the hair into a side pompadour and secure it with pins.
To shape the face, pull a few pieces in front, and secure the look with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray.
The sophisticated result beats Kristen's day look, hands down. Nice job, Frederic and Adir!
