The results are in! And Kristen Stewart’s edgy brunet waves were among this week’s most popular hairstyles in our Hollywood Makeover Tool. To get Stewart’s voluminous undone look we talked to her hairstylist Adir Abergel, “Start by applying some volumizer to the roots of the hair. Then, rough dry with your hands until it is 100% dry,” he told InStyle.com. We love Fekkai’s COIFF Strong Hold Volume Mousse (fekkai.com for $25) for that extra oomph!
