Robert Pattinson’s hairdo is making news in the entertainment industry, and it shows that the Twilight actor is not afraid to ditch his old image.
Pattinson gave the world a glimpse of his very unusual new ‘do as he and girlfriend FKA twigs headed back to their hotel in New York on Monday, according to The Inquisitr. The actor has been wearing a lot of different hats lately to cover up his shaved head. His full and seemingly untamable hair that used to set millions of hearts on fire is gone.
There is an explanation to all this, and it’s not because he wanted to change his appearance. The 28-year-old shaved his head before for a movie called The Rover. He shaved both sides of his head and then left a rat’s tail at the back that resembles a small Mohawk.
Robert Pattinson’s hairdo is comes with a punk style fashion. If it were the 1980’s, he could definitely look like one of the cool kids. Some fans are calling it a new “alternative style” for being on and off the stage, according to AOL.
The new hairdo just might be what he needed, since he does have an edgy girlfriend. Twigs, whose real name Tahliah Barnett, is known for her envelope pushing style. Performing earlier on in the evening in Brooklyn then heading to an after party, the 26-year-old singer dressed in her usual avant garde way.
The British star wore a one legged bondage inspired leotard underneath a pair of silk grey trousers with splits to the top of her thighs and a matching jacket over the top. The alt RNB star accessorized her look with a black beret and black Chanel leather gloves with no fingertips. Robert Pattinson’s hairdo hasn’t kept him out of the public, and he is clearly a committed boyfriend, as he has made sure to be present at all of twigs’ performances lately.
Robert Pattinson became romantically linked to co-star Kristen Stewart in 2008. For a long time, the two did not explicitly confirm a relationship, but paparazzi photographs and eyewitness accounts drove intense media and fan speculation and attention. However, Stewart officially acknowledged her relationship with Pattinson for the first time in 2012.
While Robert Pattinson’s hairdo is receiving negative comments by the critics, he’s been through worse. In 2012, Us Weekly published photos of Stewart showing affection with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The day that the photos were released, she issued a public apology to Robert Pattinson in People Magazine.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
After dodging the question repeatedly, Pattinson confirmed in an interview with Esquire UK in July, 2014 that he and Stewart had split. There had been prior speculation that the couple broke up a year after the scandal. That was the year Robert Pattinson was seen removing personal items from Stewart’s home.
Robert Pattinson’s hairdo was matched with a rather conservative look of dark pants with a knitted sweater and a blue trench, notes YAHOO. The couple were first linked in September but are believed to have been dating since July. The performer is the first girl that Robert has publicly dated since splitting with Stewart last year.
