Hair Products Needed to Get Robert’s Look
•Matte styling product, such as American Crew Fiber. Fiber is a paste-like, strong-hold product that is extremely pliable. It is ideal to create Robert’s bed-head look without looking too perfect.
•Round hair brush, such as Paul Mitchell’s Express Ion Round Brush. These brushes come in S, M, L, and XL sizes. Choose a size depending on hair length. Shorter than Robert’s? Use a smaller size. Hair the same length as Robert’s will need a M or L.
•Blow dryer, such as Paul Mitchell’s Express Ion Dry v.1. This dryer has a low setting for controlled air flow, a cool-shot button to secure style, and dries with ionic technology for frizz-free hair.
Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Robert’s Famous Flip
This style works best on longer men’s hair that is several inches long on top. The longer the hair, the higher the messy bed-head can be.
1.Towel dry clean, wet hair.
2.Rub a quarter-size amount of Fiber into palms of hands to warm the product. This will give the product greater pliability while styling, but will hold the finished style when it cools.
3.Starting at the roots of the crown (think of where a crown would sit on a head), scrunch the product into the hair: more at the roots, less towards the ends. Make sure the front gets enough as this is where the most purposely styled strands will need hold.
4.Blow dry hair on low setting starting at the back of the crown, pulling hair upwards and aiming the dryer at the roots to create lift. Continue to dry hair around sides of the crown and the top, gently scrunching and lifting hair. As hair dries, the Fiber will keep the hair from falling back. Don’t panic if hair resembles spikes instead of the desired effect. Detailed styling at the end will produce the Edward Cullen look.
5.Dry hair until it is about 85% dry. If hair is not staying up on its own, add a dime-size amount of more Fiber throughout crown again. It is better to add more product when needed than to use too much in the beginning. Too much will make hair look shiny or greasy, and will weigh the hair down.
6.Use the round brush in random sections to curl hair in an upward motion around the brush, and aim blow dryer directly on the hair. Experiment with how much hair is curled in each section and how tight the curl is. Using the cool-shot button on the dryer locks the curl in. The randomness of this technique is what gives the style its casual, sexy look.
7.When finished drying hair, warm a pea-sized amount of Fiber in hands, and start separating the curls, sculpting them in different directions. Adding a tiny bit of Fiber to the ends will give the hairstyle Edward’s piecey, tousled effect.
Don’t forget to keep sideburns long as well. Pattinson’s have grown to almost the bottom of his ear, and this gives him his Elvis-like style but with less formality.
