The Secret to Edward Cullen's bouffant....

Boxwish delves into how the Twilight cast member looks were achieved. They've also compiled styling info on Rosalie, Jasper and Esme as well as where to get some of their wardrobe pieces:

Edward's Look

Edward’s bronze hair, like Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal in the Stephenie Meyer book, it’s one of the heart-throb’s stand-out features and as such it had to be perfectly recreated for the screen.

“The production notes specified Edward as an absolutely stunning and heart stopping young man, with creamy gleaming skin, golden eyes and hair that looks like marble,” remembers Beverly Hills salon owner Stuart Gavert, who was recruited to help on the production by the movie’s head hairstylist Mary Ann Valdes.

“We wanted to give him bronze highlights that would complement the golden contacts he wore. We created this hair colour masterpiece through advanced highlighting techniques and a brand new method that I dubbed “twilights,” which utilises lighter and darker natural colours to add maximum contrast.”

Pattinson helped out with what styling products to use, suggesting two favourites from his private collection that were soon used for Edward’s sculpted mane – Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray and Black & White Pomade. (Apparently it isn't strictly grime, squirrels and mousse.)
