Kristen Stewart's Hair Evolution: Blonde to Buzzcuts

She's never been afraid to go there.

Long, short, blonde, brown, and even blazing red — Kristen Stewart's hair has seen just about every transformation possible. From her days as the face of the Twilight franchise to her current status as a muse for Chanel and bona fide A-list superstar, she's given fans plenty of hair inspiration, whether they're looking for red carpet-worthy waves or punk-inspired buzzcuts. No matter what style she's got, Stewart's never been afraid to embrace an unconventional style and straw from the usual beach waves and bounce.

The light locks didn't last long. For the next few years, Stewart would have Bella Swan's brown hair thanks to her multi-film contract. At the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, she showed off her signature warm, dark hair, though it still had a few light pieces.
