Last week, Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson cut off his signature long locks and surprised fans with a brand new look. The British actor debuted a new haircut on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Opera’s opening gala in New York City on Sunday, November 11. The 51-year-old actor sported a short, stylish haircut with a light color wash. He partnered the look with soft lighting and dramatic hairstyle products to achieve a striking, sophisticated look.

What Is The New Robert Pattinson Haircut?

It’s hard to believe but Hollywood’s sexiest man ever has been cutting his hair for more than 50 years. Back in 1967, the actor began sporting a stylish, shaggy haircut and paired it with some of the best fashion products of the day. Over the years, he has experimented with many different haircuts and styles. It’s safe to say that his locks have always been the most recognizable feature on the big screen.

This year, Robert Pattinson decided to try something new. The British actor has been growing his hair out since the early 2000s and decided to finally cut it off. Fans of the Twilight franchise witnessed the star’s first cut in the form of his hair’s signature laydown, which he sported in the movie Twilight (2008). The film’s director, Chris Weitz, candidly revealed that the actor had been wanting to chop off his hair for a while and that he started experimenting with different hairstyle options when he was filming his upcoming movie The Lost City. Weitz went on to say: “He wanted a haircut that would suit his character in the film. He didn’t want to wear his regular hair cut, which he’s had for years. So he took some time to try out different styles.”

The director also noted that the cut that Pattinson wore in his film The Lost City was inspired by David Bowie. The two-time Oscar winner and fashion icon famously rocked a short, slicked back hairstyle in 1977’s Fame and a similar cut in 2005’s Life on Mars.

Why The New Haircut?

If you’re wondering why the actor chose to go the short cut way, here’s a simple fact to consider: Women like hairless men. According to a survey conducted by Marie Claire, 90% of respondents said they would prefer a bald man to a well-groomed one. In fact, 70% of men said they would be less likely to consider a romantic fling with a woman if she had hair. So if you’re desperate to get into your partner’s good books you might want to consider losing your hair.

It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. The actor dated Hollywood royalty and has been linked to some of the most beautiful women in the world. With so many good-looking options at his fingertips, it’s no wonder that the star has been so consistent in his approach to attracting a mate. When it comes to selecting a husband, it’s clear that Robert Pattinson is looking for a woman who is comfortable being the center of attention and isn’t afraid to show off her sexuality. Of course, he would want to wed a woman who shares similar interests and is impressed by his success in Hollywood.

What Do You Think of The New Robert Pattinson Haircut?

We got a hold of a few of our favorite stylists and beauty product designers to come up with some suggestions on how to style the new haircut. Check out their expert tips below.

Charlize Theron

The first thing we need to point out is that this is not simply a haircut, but a complete makeover. The star underwent a total color transformation and used several cutting-edge products to achieve the sleek, stylish look. We love the results and hope that Theron will continue to experiment with hair and makeup in the future.

Some hairstyle products, such as the Garnier Fructis Hydra Silk Spray, help hair retain its shape during the day while removing some of the stress. This is beneficial for those who want to change hair styles frequently. For those who want to keep their hairstyle for the day, the solution is simple: Use a flexible hold hair oil or cream which is light enough not to weigh down hair.

Rosanna Mantovani

The Italian hairstylist has seen enough of Rosanna’s work to know exactly how she wants her hair to look. For years, the renowned salon owner has been asking for a complete overhaul and a new approach to styling the actress’s hair. It looks like she’s finally gotten what she wanted and we can’t wait to see Rosanna’s take on this new and improved style.

One of the main focuses of Rosanna’s new “do” is lightness. She uses a mixture of silvers and a touch of gold to give an air of elegance and sophistication to the star’s hair. In addition to the new haircut, the stylish stylist also gave Rosanna some color therapy by applying a tinted moisturizer to the actress’s face. Rosanna loves to experiment with new things and her beauty regime is a testament to that. With the addition of the new haircut, we can expect to see a lot more changes in the future.

Isabeli Lança

Isabeli mastered the art of red-carpet styling and has been using it for years to the charm of critics and celebrities. The celebrity hairstylist, who has worked with many big names in Hollywood, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez, showed us that even at this late stage in her career, she can still cut a stylish figure.

The Brazilian beauty expert changed the game when she started using a combination of texturing tools and dry shampoos to enhance her natural hair. The star has been known to sport different hair textures, from waves to curls, depending on her needs and mood. It’s clear that Isabeli has a unique way of expressing herself and we’re excited to see what she comes up with next.

We love the way that this new haircut compliments Isabeli’s natural hair. The combination of the soft curls and the shiny scalp are quite the eyeful. It’s safe to say that this is one hairstyle that will certainly become a trend this year.

Patricia Velasquez

The stylist has created a masterpiece with this hairdo. We’re speechless. The genius of sticking the letters T-A-L-K on her head is beyond us. She even went a step further and put the K on her right shoulder. This is a style that can only be described as a ‘Koolhaas’.

The letters K-O-L-H-A-S-S spells out ‘Koolhaas’, after the famous Dutch architect and designer who was famous for his building projects that were both unique and stunning. In a scene from the documentary about Koolhaas, the designer is shown working on a drawing for a ‘Koolhaas’ shaped skyscraper.

We can see why the stylist went with this signature ‘Koolhaas’ hairstyle. It’s both a recognizable and unique style that she can use to her advantage. Plus, it’s the perfect way to show off her love for the brilliant designer.

What Will The New Robert Pattinson Haircut Look Like On You?

We can see why so many celebrities have been expressing their admiration for the new haircut. It’s simple but it’s effective: When viewed from the front, the haircut creates perfect symmetry. It’s sleek, elegant, and yet also has a “man-on-the-street” appearance. This is a look that is both recognizable and unique at the same time. We can’t think of many haircuts that could be described as both versatile and memorable at the same time.

It’s been almost 50 years since Robert Pattinson has been cutting his hair short and it’s safe to say that the time has finally come for a change. We can’t think of any other hairstyle that has been so consistent in popularity over the years. It seems that the longer the hair, the more potential it has for becoming unfashionable. For years, fans have been keeping up with the changing trends by regularly visiting the barber’s chair. Perhaps it’s time for them to stop cutting hair and join the rest of us in the 21st century.

We can expect to see more celebrities sporting the new haircut in the near future. Plus, with an unprecedented number of options available, perhaps it’s time for someone to reinvent the ‘70s hairstyle once and for all.
