Hair Tips from the Set of Twilight: EclipseKristen Stewart — "Bella"
According to Stewart's personal on-set stylist, Bonnie Clevering, blow drying was a key step to create Bella's signature style. To get the look, she sectioned the hair for total control, starting at the nape and working up using a medium-size round brush. Clevering first used the hot setting to dry followed by a shot of cool air to set the hair in place. Her weapon of choice? IT&LY Hairfashion's Italian Red Racing Ionic 1000 Model Dryer. To tame fly-a-ways and add a brilliant shine, Clevering used Purity Design's Pure Water Drops, massaging several drops into the palms of her hands and gently applying to hair. For the damp days on the Vancouver set, she used Purity Design Pure Definition Hair Spray for volume and hold.
