Kristen Stewart’s new hair: a grunge pixie cut or a high-fashion mullet?

For years now, Kristen Stewart has been doing various blonde hairstyles. Her hair has been white-blonde, it’s been honey blonde, it’s been long-dark-roots gross blonde and everything in between. She was having a blonde moment for several years, to the point where I actually forgot what she looks like with really dark hair. Well, look at this! Kristen turned up at today’s Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week and she debuted a new look. I’m calling this a choppy mullet, but British Vogue calls it “the grunge version of the classic pixie crop.” Yeah, either/or. I don’t see “pixie,” I see bangs trauma and Joan Jett. But I like it – I’ve always like Kristen with dark hair and this color suits her so much.

The late Karl Lagerfeld was actually a big supporter of Kristen and her brand-ambassadorship with Chanel. I wondered if Kristen would bother to stick around post-Lagerfeld, but here she is. I guess she’s ride-or-die with the brand. She happily posed with Charlotte Casiraghi, niece of Monaco’s Prince Albert, at today’s show. Kristen also got a front-row seat. I’m adding a bonus photo of Camila Morrone at the show too – she also got bangs and they’re awful. Jesus, is this going to be the Autumn of Bangs Trauma? It will be followed by The Winter of Barrettes and then the Spring of Growing It Out.

Meanwhile, next year’s Met Gala will have a Karl Lagerfeld theme and there will be a huge Costume Institute exhibition for Lagerfeld’s life and work. Jameela Jamil is already mad about it. I mean… it’s not like she would have been invited though?

    Cute haircut! Looks good on her.

    • Bettyrose says:

      If I had her bone structure, I’d rock this look too!

    • BeanieBean says:

      Agree, she looks cute in this. It’s a long-ish pixie, not a mullet (thank goodness!).

    • tealily says:

      Yes! Very on-trend at it suits her. I feel like what folks are calling “mullets” these days are what was previously called a shag.

  2. Elo says:

    The dark really makes her eyes pop. I like this cut on her. It screams 90s CK one model to me. She can pull off some funky cuts better than most.

  3. Heather C says:

    I like her in dark hair. But no to the mullet. I’m seeing mullets more and more on both males and females. I hated the mullet when I was a kid and it was super popular. Some trends just shouldn’t come back around and the “business in the front, party in the back” hair style is one of them.

    • Erin says:

      Yeah I’m not a fan of this cut either, I feel like it ages her or something. I loved that cut and color that she had when she was promoting Spencer, that was amazing.

      • HeatherC says:

        I think it dates her more than ages her.though I don’t think she’s old enough to have been around when everyone had a mullet, including my favorite New Kid lol

    • Fabiola says:

      I like her with dark hair too but not this style. I like it when it was long back in the Twilight days.

  4. lucy2 says:

    The haircut looks very 80s. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.

  5. Chaine says:

    She looks so much better with dark hair! I don’t love this messy bangs style, but it does suit her.

  6. Theresa says:

    This haircut looks as if a 5 year old was playing with scissors. Messy and uneven…not a fan.

  7. traci says:

    The jameela shadeeee!!! LOL 4 eva

  8. Elsa says:

    This is fabulous. I wish I could wear it.

  9. girl_ninja says:

    Kristen looks really good. I like this haircut and color on her.

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’d do it if I could.

  11. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    Still hot. That FACE

  12. Tiffany:) says:

    I like how the front frames her eyes. The mullet back isn’t my favorite, but it looks true to her.

    I think she looks a lot like Jena Malone in this style. They should play sisters in a movie!

  13. Rice says:

    I love Kristen but this haircut looks like it started out to be a pixie cut and then gave up. The dark colour (brunette?) looks good on her.

  14. Mei says:

    So you’re okay with a Met Gala theme that is celebrating that highly problematic white man? At least Jameela Jamil is talking about it.

  15. Terry says:

    I love how Kristin keeps her lips small

  16. addy says:

    She can pull off anything 🥵

  17. HandforthParish says:

    Haircut in itself is diabolical but she pulls it off beautifully. It does look very grunge 90s CK indeed.
    I think it’s lovely… ON HER.

  18. SarahCS says:

    All the women in these pictures look like they’re at a (bad) fancy dress party. I know clothes are a costume but they all just look ‘off’ to me.

  19. JJS says:

    My kids, 15, 16, both want mullets and call it a mullet and don’t understand why I would hold any negative associations with it and when I try to explain the history of it I feel stupid. So I guess KS is on trend with gen Z! I’m pretty sure she can pull of anything.

  20. Lens says:

    Kristin is so beautiful – those eyes! Last thing I saw her in was Irma Vep and the lead character seemed to be modeled after her but she played a super hip actress type and she looked so worn out. I blamed the pale all one color hair she had. This is much more flattering
