Kristen Stewart traded in her signature tousled waves for an edgy side ponytail at the On the Road premiere over the weekend. The over-the-shoulder style featured slicked-back sides with a teased section at the crown, forming a pompadour silhouette. Frederic Fekkai's Adir Abergel created the androgynous look, which was inspired by her architectural Balenciaga number.
After applying the brand's Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($23.10) in Kristen's dry hair, Abergel roughed up her strands with his hands and backcombed the roots of the top section for volume and texture. Next, he pulled the hair into a side ponytail using the Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax to give it polish and workability. Kristen paired the modern style with a whole other makeup statement: red lips and red eye shadow. But you don't have to bare your midriff or wear matchy-matchy makeup to pull off this fun look.
Mila Kunis may have some of the most mesmerising eyes in Hollywood, but she also has some of the most enviable hair. At Thursday night's Ted premiere in Los Angeles, the actress looked absolutely resplendent in shimmery, coffee-toned eye makeup and impressively glossy strands.

Gwyneth Paltrow was one of our Best Tressed celebrities at this year's Oscars with her sleek, low-slung ponytail — but the style almost never made it out the front door. When Gwyneth Paltrow was getting ready at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, her hair stylist Adir Abergel originally went for a tousled knot-style bun, which Gwyneth shows off in her latest GOOP newsletter. It was decided by both though that the dress and cape required "even simpler hair," so they scraped the bun and went about creating the ponytail that we saw on the red carpet.

Kate Beckinsale always has perfect, glossy, frizz-free waves that break across her shoulders in just the right place. Clearly, having Frédéric Fekkai's Adir Abergel on hand is a big help, but there's also a trick to getting these kind of waves right. For Kate's hair at the Underworld: Awakening premiere, Abergel says that the key to creating her soft curls was starting low. Specifically, he prepped the hair with the brand's Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel on the roots and the Highlight Care Illuminating Cream on the ends. After blow-drying, he then used a one-inch curling iron to wrap strands of Kate's hair starting two inches away from her roots. That way, she had a smooth-on-top look with silky waves below. It's a simple tip, but it makes a big difference. Abergel's other advice? For a look like this, curl away from your face.
Adir began by building texture, applying Frédéric Fekkai Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel ($23.10) to the roots. He then used Fekkai Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave Spray ($46) throughout the rest of the hair, rough drying it to create a beachy base.
Then taking random sections, Adir created standard plaits, fishtail braids and twists throughout the hair, making sure to leave the top section loose. He then took all of the hair, save for the loose hair at the top, and knotted and twisted it, securing with bobby pins, to create an up 'do.
To finish, Adir backcombed the front section to add volume, before pinning it back into place. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($26.30).
