Want to have hair like the Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart?

Elle Magazine gives the exclusive from the salon stylist himself Stuart Gavert, co-owner of Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills. He changed the way he did hair color-staring with the cast of Twilight.

“Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson were going to film in Portland, Oregon, for weeks at time and their hair color needed to last throughout the shoot,” says Gavert. In particular, he elongated the life of Pattinson’s brownish-bronze highlights by starting them “a quarter of an inch off the exterior of the hair, off the part and off the face line.” According to Gavert, “if you put highlights right on top, you’re going to immediately see regrowth. You want to begin highlights toward the interior so that a bit of your natural hair color hangs over them.” Another root-hiding tactic: balayage. “Instead of that blanketed highlight look, the balayage technique involves less color than traditional foils,” says Gavert, adding, “Because you’re painting the color on, it also allows you to strategically place it in a way that’s most conducive to a person’s haircut and bone structure.”

A year and a half later and Gavert says the “Twilights” coloring process is still popular.
