Kristen Stewart rocks an updo made with hair pins and totally slays

Thought that hair pins only had one purpose? Think again!

Like a true rock’n’roll icon in the making, actress Kristen Stewart stepped out at the premiere of her new film Equals flaunting an uber edgy ‘do. Her bleach blonde hair were styled into a side-swept, wavy updo. We know, it doesn’t sound that ground-breaking, but here’s where things get interesting: it was styled with a slew of hair pins in a punk-inspired, criss-cross pattern. Get more details on her look below…

It’s no secret that Kristen recently opted for a radical hair change, switching up her signature grungy bob for peroxide blonde hair. And now the ex-Twilight star has taken hair experimenting one step further, with the help of the world’s most trusty hair accessory: the hair pin. What was once a tool for subtly holding styles in place is now a hair game-changer: hair pins are the accessories that stand on their own two feet, and, it seems, Kristen knows this better than anyone.

At the Equals film premiere, it was clear that not only is the actress living proof that grown out roots are totally in style, but she’s also shown the world that stacked hair pins can really accentuate a basic updo. Her hair was styled into messy, windswept waves with a deep side part. One side of her hair was brushed back and fastened into place with black hair pins, while the other side was left loose to softly frame her oval complexion.

Here’s our take on Kristen Stewart’s hair pin ‘do!

While celebrities like Khloe Kardashian have been using hair pins in a neater fashion, K-Stew’s take on the look was much more fashion-forward. The contrasting dark colour of the hair pins against her bright blonde hair, and the fact that they were overlapped in a unique criss-cross pattern gave her ‘do an unexpectedly glam, punk-inspired feel. As usual, she paired her edgy hairdo with heavily kohl-lined, cat eyes and an utterly stunning black lace ensemble, once again proving that she’s the true queen of rock’n’roll hair.
