This is how you go out in style.

The stars of the “Twilight” series went on a worldwide red carpet tour to celebrate the premieres of the last film in the blockbuster series and definitely upped the ante in the hair and fashion departments for this last go-round. Think your clients have some hair envy for a few of the looks seen on style mavens Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed? Here are a couple of step-by-step guides from the stylists who created two of the more memorable ‘dos the stars rocked at the premieres.

HOW TO: From the 'Twilight' red carpet Apply texturizing gel from roots to ends to create texture and memory.

Hand-dry hair until completely dry to enhance natural texture and create volume before creating a deep side part.

Spray 1-inch sections of hair with flexible hold hairspray and curl around a 1-inch barrel curling iron. Pin curls in place and allow hair to cool. Continue this process around the entire head.

Gently brush out curls and apply shine serum to ends to create separation and give hair a high-shine effect.

Slick back one side of the hair and pin in place. Finish the style with flexible hold hairspray to ensure a touchable hold.





Nikki Reed
The Look: Sleek wrap-around bun updo
Created by: Wella Professionals stylist Mara Roszak

HOW TO: From the 'Twilight' red carpet Start by applying a couple pumps of Wella Professionals Flowing Form to damp hair and brush through.

Part hair using a rat tail comb and blow out hair with a boar bristle round brush. To tame any fly aways, apply a dime-sized amount of Wella Professionals Smooth Brilliance by running through hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots.

Pull hair tight to the nape of the neck and secure it with a Bungee elastic band.

Holding the pony, loop the hair under the elastic to create a small bun and secure with bobby pins.

Wrap the rest of the hair around the elastic.

To finish, lightly spray Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight to add extra shine and then mist all over with Wella Stay Essential Finishing Spray.
