For this year's Met Gala, Kristen Stewart rocked an edgy Chanel ensemble with bold silver eye makeup, dark smoky liner, and an edgy, raw hair look. 

Stewart's hair was styled by Adir Abergel for Pai-Shau. It was colored bleach blonde with contracting darker roots. To style, Abergel did the following:

STEP 1: “I started with Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion; I love the beautiful, weightless foundation it gives," he said. "It also primed and hydrated Kristen's newly-bleached hair so the texture was smooth and shiny, almost like virgin hair, so it was easier to style.”

STEP 2: “I took a handful of Pai-Shau Royal Abundance Mousse to give the hair body and the right structure, working it in from roots to mid length. Next, I blowdried it up and away from the face, using a diffuser, to create some volume and to lock in the deconstructed texture. I then very loosely let the bottom section fall down naturally while the rest of the hair was put up into the futuristic updo.” 

STEP 3: “Once the hair was dry and ready to be put up, I took the top sections and gave them a light tease at the root. I then made random knotted twists and secured them with hairpins, making sure that the ends stayed out for a bit more of a spiky feel.”

STEP 4: “I continued creating the knots with spiky ends all the way around, and for a final accented detail I made a corn row braid on the right side of Kristen’s head.”

STEP 5: “I finished with a weightless spray of Pai-Shau Sublime Hold Hairspray for flexible hold and all night memory.”
