I've never been a fan of the half-up-half-down look. There's something juvenile about the usual approach, like maybe a bow in the back would finish it off nicely. If you're six. But Kristen Stewart's red-carpet hair at the TIFF 2012 premiere of On the Road has caught my attention. And I'm not the only one who noticed it -- celebrity stylist Sally Hershberger talked about it when I interviewed her last week, as did delightful Alain LarivÃ©e, Canadian creative consultant for John Frieda (Alain has worked with The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev.)
Kristen's go-to hair guy, Giannandrea, is major when it comes to celebrity and editorial work. His client list includes Julianne Moore, Drew Barrymore (many, many times), Scarlett Johansen, Eva Mendes, Amber Heard, Carmen Diaz, Mila Kunis, Demi Moore -- here, watch this demo reel, you'll see.
For her TIFF spotlight moment, Giannandrea gave KStew a rock'n'roll update to that half-up-half-down â€™do. I like the top twisted up and back to fall over sleek sides, and the rumpled texture (although from some angles I'm not quite as fond of the texture as in others). Here, let's look at some more images:
If you love that eye shadow and lipstick, but missed the info on pro-artist Mai Quy's application, you'll find details on Kristen's TIFF 2012 makeup here.
