“Kristen caught in hair extension scandal!”
“We’re surprised that Kstew would partake in such phony primping!”
“She’s usually so natural… Will we ever be able to believe anything again?”
Is this a joke or for real? Negative comments like these were sparked by Kristen Stewart going from shoulder-length hair to a super-long mane in one day! In Korea promoting Eclipse, KStew looked like her normal self during the day and turned into a glamour girl after the sun went down. One naysayer exaggerated that it was like her hair had grown two feet. In all fairness to the media, most of the responses were favorable or neutral. When Kristen got back to the States, she didn’t hesitate to fake it again at the MTV Movie Awards.
What’s wrong with hair extensions anyway? More celebrities than you would think rely on them. Jessica Simpson is a big proponent of HairUWear extensions and hairpieces. Others who add on to their manes are Jessica’s sis Ashlee, Paris Hilton, Eva Longoria Parker, Heidi Montage, Sarah Jessica Parker… too many to name.
Devoted fans or hair fashionistas would rather know how to get the look. The first time she extended her mane, Kristen wore it half up and let a piece of her real hair stick out. For MTV, the Twilight star wore it all up! Frederic Fekkai celebrity stylist Adir Abergel did an edgy look with high volume and loose curls. For starters, he applied Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip on damp hair, and styled it with his hands while blow-drying. He created more movement by using a one-inch diameter curling iron on top layers. The stylist took hair into a high ponytail and wrapped a strand from underneath around the pony holder. Use your creativity to finish up, breaking up the curls with a product like Fekkai Beach Waves and/or a strong-hold but light-looking hairspray.
It doesn’t really matter what anyone thinks, because the Vampy tresses were perfect for Kristen on a night full of surprises like the passionate kiss instigated by Robert Pattinson on stage… as if to prove they truly deserve their Golden Popcorn award for Best Kiss.
