Kristen Stewart's new hair

Kristen Stewart showed off her new hair on Instagram


Kristen Stewart swapped her signature chocolate-y brown locks for an altogether more striking (and orange) look this weekend.

The 23-year-old posed for a selfie sporting her newly-dyed hair – and it reminded us of the dye job Kate Bosworth had a few weeks back for her part in Still Alice (which, coincidentally, also stars Kristen Stewart).

As with Kate, Kristen's new hue is also for a film role, as the Twilight star's hairdresser let the world know via Instagram.

'Kristen Stewart gettin her hair ready for a new role! #americamultra#awesomecolor#houseofhair.'

The film in question is America Ultra – a comedy thriller which will see Kristen star opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Uma Thurman

Kristen rarely deviates from her smoky-eye-and-swept-over-hair look, so we were a little surprised to see she's allowed someone to give her the bleach treatment (although the side parting is still very firmly in place).

Film role or no, we're fans of Kristen's new look.
