Kristen Stewart's Head-Turning Red Hair: Love It or Hate It?

She’s built her reputation on her grungy offscreen style, but Kristen Stewart really got tongues wagging today when she showed up to tape the Late Show with David Letterman in NYC sporting strawberry blond hair! Gone were her dark shoulder-length locks, replaced by chin-skimming fiery red tuck-under. While the new look is reported to be for her upcoming role as MaryLou in the film adaption of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, the softer style marks a distinct departure from any do we’ve seen her rock before. While we’ve loved seeing the Twilight Saga star transform from Bella’s girl-next-door tresses to Joan Jett’s rocker-cool mullet and back again, we have to admit that we might love seeing Kristen’s screen-siren side most of all. Tell us: Do you think that Kristen’s hair is red-hot–or should she go back to the dark side? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

This looks just awesome! I love how it works with her eyes and skin tone. Much better than her dark hair, it was starting to look mangy. Now I really want highlights like these….warm but not too brassy.

It goes well with the eyes, but I’m just a total team Edward person and I love dark hair, on all people. I also think that it’s diffrent from her usual brown. It makes her look brighter, so it’s good for me!

Love it, love it, love it!! Looks SO much better!

Laura on

Definitely keep it red
