Check out Kristen Stewart's hair at last night's People's Choice Awards—pretty amazing, right? The subtle wave, the body, the volume, the lustre, the shine—seriously we covet it.
Her hairstylist Adir Abergel, who works for Frederic Fekkai, was inspired by the 1960s—and wanted to create a look that was sexy and textured.
Abergel started by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($23) throughout the hair, then roughly blow-dried her hair—no brush, just hands—until it was near-dry. Then he picked up a round-brush and finished the blow-dry til it was straight and smooth. He curled her hair using a 1¼" curling iron, and used a combination of Fekkai's Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray ($23) and Fekkai's Advanced Brilliant Glossing Cream ($9 to $32) to create the texture.
