Exclusive: Why Kristen Stewart got cornrows

Debuted at Sundance

Last year ELLE interviewed Kristen Stewart, and being a beauty interview the discussion naturally turned to hair. Back then she told us that her next experimental hairstyle would be cornrows, the exact hairstyle she debuted at the Sundance film festival this weekend,

You see Stewart isn’t afraid of experimenting with her hair for the sake of her art, 'I’m pretty much open to anything – if I really loved the part I’d do anything. You know, hair grows, relatively speaking it doesn’t take that long in exchange for a good experience so I think it’s worth it,”' she told ELLE UK. 'I’ve been blonde, dark, I’ve had reddish hair, short, long. I run the gamut, you know”'.

Despite her dedication to the cause, in her own time she prefers low-commitment styles that aren’t so try-hard.

'Last year everyone started shaving the side of their head. I’m shooting for a couple of days in New York but then at the end of November I’m done for the year. I’m going to get a couple of tight cornrows put in. It almost gives the impression of no hair so I’m stoked about that,' said the star. 'I think a shaved head is a little forced, but the cornrows gives you the effect without the commitment.'

We love Stewart’s new, albeit temporary look, what do you think?
