Kristen with Rock-Chic Messy Hair Style

Stewart's style is a short, blunt cut that is long on top. This added length allows her to switch her part between right and left sides. Her hair naturally has some wave to it, which gives added volume. This particular look is parted to the right and sleek on the left side -- and we love the contrast it gives.

Her stylist Giannandrea says she added even more volume using Macadamia Natural Oil Foaming Volumizer on her wet hair before drying it. The volumizer helps to keep flyaways at bay. After drying, work some extra-hold gel into the hair, creating an extreme side part. The side-swept hair away from the part should look and feel messy.

Work your hands through your hair, scrunching it and pulling it forward to fall just over the eye in the sexy, mussed style Stewart has perfected. The other side should be tucked behind your ear and combed straight. If you have difficulty keeping your part straight, you may need to include a light spraying of hairspray for added effect.

Combine it with Glimmering Eyes

Stewart paired her rocker-girl hair with a glimmering silver eyeshadow. On a lot of people this could look overdone -- that's why it's so important to maintain the casual, messy effect of the hair. Stewart's face has a dewy, natural finish. To achieve this, you may wish to mix a small amount of your foundation with a liquid luminizer, such as Make Up For Ever Uplight Face Luminizer Gel.

To get the eye look, pick up a palette with a shimmery eyeshadow, such as Chanel's Les 4 Ombres in 224 Tisse Riviera. Swipe the light pink shade over the entire eye before applying the silvery shadow on the eyelid. Dip an eyeliner brush in the light blue shimmery shade, to line the eyes, paying special attention to the inner corner of the eye. Stewart lined the upper portion of her lower lash line with a gel eyeliner for a precise look -- just be careful not to poke your eye accomplishing the look.

To complement the eyes, swipe on a light peachy-nude lipstick, such as Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Agatha. This peach-nude shade will work well beyond this makeup look. If you have a light gloss, you can add it on -- just not anything too shiny to match Stewart's understated style.
