HAIR: Hairstylist Adir Abergel gave Stewart's hair subtle body by applying a volumizer to the roots before blowdrying, then added a lightweight oil to the ends for a more deconstructed feel. With the juxtaposition of texture and a blunt cut he gave Stewart that morning, Abergel was able to keep the look modern and fresh. MAKEUP: For Stewart's au naturel look, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey started by dabbing on concealer to polish skin and focused on creating a strong brow by using upward strokes with a chocolate pencil. "Because of the symmetry of Kristen's face, she can handle more intensity around her eyes," Dempsey says. NAILS: Manicurist Kimmie Kyees kept nails clean by buffing and applying a sheer pink hue.

"The hair is a combination of luxe and a light bit of grit, like Bianca Jagger's brushed-out waves mixed with a Nirvana punk-rock-vibe." —Hairstylist Adir Abergel
