Kristen Stewart dyed her hair light orange for ‘American Ultra’: gross or cute?

kstew hair

You know the thing that always killed me a little about Kristen Stewart’s insistence having such “low-maintenance” grooming habits? It’s that if she really took care of her beautifully, naturally thick, wavy hair, she would be the poster girl for great hair (and great skin). So many women would love to have a chance to maintain Kristen’s natural hair – I would love a go at it. I have really thick hair too, but it’s too fine to do anything. I always wished I had some natural curl. Grass is always greener, etc.

Anyway, Kristen has taken another step towards ruining her natural beauty. Maison de Cheveux’s Instagram account posted the header photo with this message: “Kristen Stewart gettin her hair ready for a new role! #americamultra#awesomecolor#houseofhair”. I think that’s supposed to be “American Ultra,” which is Kristen’s next scheduled film. This is the description of the film: “A stoner and his girlfriend’s sleepy, small-town existence is disrupted when his past comes back to haunt him in the form of a government operation set to wipe him out.” Jesse Eisenberg is the stoner and Kristen is the girlfriend. That should be… interesting. Will Kristen even have to “act”?

Anyway, the hair is for the movie, which does make it better, I guess. This salon is in New Orleans, so I guess the film will be made in NOLA? The salon owner told Us Weekly: “The director of the movie told us what color to dye Kristen’s hair… Kristen was very sweet and cool.”

Incidentally, last week there were a lot of old-school Twihard stories about Kristen possibly reuniting with Sparkles. Are we still ringing this bell? Do you even want me to discuss it? I kind of think they’re over for good. I think he’s making the choice to focus on his career right now and Kristen is doing the same.

    I’ve had my hair this color before, it was a complete accident and I hated it. It fired my hair a bit.

  2. Stef Leppard says:

    Always “gross,” never “cute” when we’re talking about KStew.

    • CTgirl says:

      Agreed. She always looks like she needs a flea dip and a good scrub with lots of soap.

      • mimi says:

        I will never understand the OTT claims that Kristen looks in need of a bath. She has a beautiful complexion which she gives most of the credit to her daily use of Proactiv. If she didn’t bathe, she’d have terrible skin. Her clothes do not appear soiled. Actually I remember someone who commented here awhile back who said she met Kristen once and said while she didn’t smell any perfume on her, she did say Kristen had this nice, clean soapy scent of someone who just stepped out of a shower. I’ll admit her hair looks in need of a good brushing alot of the times which I think is what causes some people to go thick on the “she needs a good scrubbing” insults. She admits she uses dry shampoo a few times a week so her hair doesn’t dry out from over-shampooing. I have never heard of anybody say she has bad body odor which is a true indicator of poor hygiene.

      • Rice says:

        @ Mimi – I agree with you 1000%. These “statements” about Kristen’s hygiene habits have gotten way out of hand. While I agree that her hair needs brushing, I think that the comments saying that she LOOKS like she stinks and whatever are beyond ridiculous. Until someone gets near her and says that she has serious BO, then folks should stop with the lies. I do think that the hateful hygiene comments stem from the fact that she is a celeb whom people love to hate.

        On another note, there is nowhere in the description of the movie that says that she is also a stoner. Only Jesse Whatsenberg is mentioned as the stoner.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        I believe she has claimed that she prefers her natural odor to smelling too clean, in the same interview where she said Sparkles liked to lick her armpits. She just *looks* greasy and smelly, like Michael Pitt. And she also wears ratty sneakers without socks, which to me just seems gross.

      • CTgirl says:

        KS walks around in t-shirts that either have holes in them or are limp. She either wears hats with sweat stains or tacky trucker hats. Her hair frequently looks greasy. Some of her jeans do have stains on them. The skinny jeans that she seems to prefer are way too tight and tend to look tacky when paired with the ratty t-shirts, ugly/stained hats and hair that appears to be unwashed. Hence my comment.

      • mimi says:


        Wearing tight jeans and t-shirts with holes in them (actually, I see jeans and t-shirts sold in stores brand new with the holes already in them!) or anything you deem “tacky” does not mean they are soiled. Her clothes look clean to me in the pics I’ve seen. The only time I saw her wear a hat with salty water stains on the front was the old Baltimore Orioles trucker hat that used to belong to Robert. For whatever reason, she loved wearing that particular cap. nbd

      • Dane says:

        @mimi she wore that cap when she was caught cheating too. lol

  3. Abbott says:

    Good for her? I suppose the Irange is meant to be gross sooo mission accomplished?

    She seems to be working on back-to-back films. So much for that career dive, I guess.

  4. Sisi says:

    eh. It’s for a role.

    I’ve seen more hideous hair for roles. (looking at you Sparkles)

  5. Anon says:

    I have thick wavy hair that’s a lot like hers and I’m just now figuring out how to work with it (after three+ decades). I just discovered that using product and buying a decent brand actually makes your hair look better. Duh. Long, thick hair is a lot of work!

  6. Aria says:

    There’s something trashy about this girl: Polished or not she always looks like she needs a nap and a warm bath.

  7. Ms. Turtle says:

    But isn’t hair dye supposed to be really bad for the fetus?????

  8. Nicolette says:

    It’s for a movie role, and she’s getting paid millions for it. It’s par for the course in her business, sometimes it has to get colored, cut or even shaved off.

  9. stormtrooper says:

    no one would have taken them seriously as actors if they had stayed together.people think of them as edward and bella. that’s why we didn’t see either of them dating since the break up (the rumors about rob were all tabloïds fiction) & that’s why all they seem to be doing is film movies. kristen filmed 4 movies and AU is the 5th since they broke up. same for rob. we’ll never know what’s really happening between them but it’s clear they want people to focus on their work not personal lives.

  10. stormtrooper says:

    also can i just say that washing ur hair and blow drying it everyday is really really bad for it? my doc said to wash my hair twice a week max. i never get why people have a fixation with kristen’s hair. she washes it and styles it everytime she has a public event to attend to. what she does with it in her private time is her business really. that’s my opinion though. maybe because in my 20′s people didn’t feel the pressure to have perfect hair everyday.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I don’t think her hair has to look perfect, or that she has to wash it every day. But when your hair looks greasy and your clothes are dingy and wrinkled, you don’t look clean. I can only speak for myself, but that’s what bothers me about her. She always looks dirty and unwashed, and that’s gross to me. Not really any of my business, just as you say, but it still is unappealing to me.

      • Lark says:

        I get what you mean about her hair and wrinkled clothes….and I actually like Kristen. However, there are tons of dudes (everyone from la douche Franco to Joaquin to Sparkles) who wear wrinkled hipster clothes and I rarely see people go around talking about them being “dirty and unclean.” It’s not like her clothes are visibly dirty and a lot of the time when people go “ew, her hair”….her hair actually looks okay and clean. I mean I’ve seen photos where’s she’s fairly put together and people will still go “unwashed and dirty.” It all just seems hyperbolic to me.

  11. Sunshine says:

    Still love her! I’m in New Orleans, but no time to stalk (joking).

  12. MisJes says:

    I’m actually really looking forward to seeing her and Jesse Eisenburg together in a film again, I LOVE Adventureland.

  13. Lark says:

    Bit hyperbolic to say it’s “ruining her natural beauty” imo. Not my favorite shade of red or orange and an odd looking color, but if she’s supposed to be playing some kind of stoner type maybe they want it to be like Tang or off-beat. However, with all the off-beat hair colors I wonder why the movie people didn’t go for something a little more fun like purple rather than light orange because it just looks super carroty. Anyway, it’s for a movie role so nbd.

  14. lulu says:

    her hair looks awful. i’m not talking about the color. it looks so unhealthy.

  15. Caroline says:

    I’m so jealous of skin…that’s how she look halfway decent despite laid-back attire, wish I could have the same.

  16. tracy says:

    One of the many things I like about Kristen is she does not respond to the silliness about her smelling. Many actresses would be using their PR team to dispel the rumors, not Kristen. She seems not to care. She wears casual, but clean clothes. Her skin is beautiful and clear. And her hair is gorgeous.
