Kristen Stewart made a bold blonde debut after going public with her latest haircut. The “Personal Shopper” actress revealed a platinum shaved head at the Tuesday premiere of her latest film.

On Thursday morning, Stewart’s haircut was explained on Today as the Los Angeles native touched on the subject of sudden hair makeovers, citing movie-related reasons. “I’m doing a movie in a couple weeks called “Underwater” and I play a mechanical engineer that’s working on an oil rig that’s on the bottom of the ocean floor,” the 26-year-old actress explained. “So for me, it’s practical. I’m not going to be able to have touch ups when I have a helmet on. I must have my head!”

Whether or not she bagged a role in “Underwater,” Stewart’s haircut would eventually be tried out. According to Hollywood Life, the actress admitted that she has been wanting to change up her hairstyle for quite some time now.

When William Eubank, the film’s director, offered the idea about Stewart’s haircut going shaved, the “Camp X-Ray” star was more than excited to go forward with the plan, although having her hair chopped off was not necessarily required.

Less than a week after the actress cut her hair off, Stewart’s haircut has been embraced as part of her new punk-inspired look. “It feels amazing,” she added. “I just want to head bang all day!”

Going from Stewart’s hairstyle to her latest roles, the actress shared how she did not have much time to adjust to her character in “Personal Shopper.” In fact, she only had several days to put herself into the mindset of Maureen after filming Woody Allen’s drama film, “Café Society.”

In a January 2014 interview, Stewart’s haircut had already been a predicted notion as the “Twilight” alum promised she would debut a super-short hairstyle in the future, with a tattoo on her scalp to complete the look. "I'm definitely going to shave my head before I die,” she said at the time.
