Hairdresser Bonnie Clevering, makeup artist Stacey Panepinto talk Bella’s natural look.

Breaking Dawn hairdresser, Bonnie Clevering, makeup artist Stacey Panepinto spoke to Canadian Hairdresser Magazine about Bella’s natural look.


“The inspiration was simple” says Bonnie.  ”I had to remain consistent with “Bella’s” previous looks which was soft and casual.”  The foundation for Kristen’s haircut was layered around the face at a chin length level while the back was longer with layers.  To maintain her hair color, Bonnie would use a colour enhancement to give vibrancy and tone to her hair for film. This all might sound simple but filming scenes in Baton Rouge, Vancouver and the US Virgin Islands played havoc on Kristen’s fine, silky hair.

Even though her hair was dense, Bonnie had to maintain “Bella’s” look for 12-15 hour days of filming.  To achieve her look through various scenes and weather, each morning after shampooing, she would apply conditioner to only the shaft area. For lift and volume, Bonnie would apply IT&LY HAIRFASHIONS Pure Style Mouse (Strong) to the root area to serve as a root lifter while using a light gel to the shaft. It was important to use products that would prevent  her natural oils from weighing down the  hair.   Next, Bonnie would blow dry her hair using a small mixed bristle brush at the root area for added lift and switching to a medium round brush to finish the shaft area.  After blow drying, she would use a jumbo curling iron, running it through the shaft area just to heat up each section and then switch to a 3/4″ iron to create a blend.  To finish, she would use a light hairspray like Sebastian Shaper.  According to Bonnie, “The greatest challenge was the various weather conditions.  I needed products that would allow me to comb the hair out and re-blow dry the hair without any track or pulling of the hair.”

“Bella’s look has been very natural in the movies and we wanted to keep that forBreaking Dawn,” said makeup artist Stacey Panepinto. To achieve the look she used very natural colours like browns and peach tones to enhance Kristen’s eyes and a sheer colour to pull out the natural colours in Kristen’s lips.

Thank you so much for posting this! =) I've grown my hair to look like 'Bella' hair, and I've already long wavy hair, I've always had 'naturally wavy hair' you know. ;) And I've dyed my hair to look like Bella's, dark brown with little bit of reddish, because Bella's hair look in the sun little reddish. =) I love my hair and I take care of my hair with great love, and I've trying to formulate them and using styling heat iron but I'm little 'lazy' with that lol =) So this post is GREAT! =) I wish that I could meet Kristen's hairdresses and make-up artists. =) They have been doing great job, I love Bella's hair in every movie. :)


That IT&LY HAIRFASHION looks great, thanks for the link but does anyone knows do they sale those in Finland?? I would love to try it those. But I think that I can't found those products here, sadly. :(


Bella's hair are always beautiful wavy warm brown and we love her naturally looks. =) Here's few of my fave pics. :)
