Celebrity stylist Hallie Bowman was the mastermind behind Kristen Stewart's edgy, yet elegant 'do at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, surprising us all by transforming the "Twilight" star's shag to a chic (faux) bob.
Hallie's 6-step method for achieving Kristen's look:
Step One: Cleanse & Condition
First, Hallie started by shampooing and conditioning Kristen’s hair with a moisturizing formula to create a good base for styling.
Step Two: Shape [Optional]
She began by cutting bangs to create roundness around the cheekbones, a look that is complimentary of her heart-shape face.
Step Three: Prime
Hallie applied the Pantene Pro-V Volume Root Lifter Gel from root to tip to begin building volume, as well as the Pantene Pro-V Texture Spray Wax to make hair more malleable for styling.
Step Four: Create Volume
Then, she blow dried Kristen’s hair while brushing it away from the scalp, periodically flipping her hair over to ensure lots of volume at the crown.
Step Five: Strategically Pin & Place
Hallie then pinned sections of her hair back with bobby pins to secure it away from the face, leaving some pieces around the face to give the illusion of a bob with bangs– a nod to the bowl cut, but with a modern feel.
Step Six: Shine On
To polish off the look, Hallie used Pantene Pro-V Smooth Serum for long lasting shine.
