Kristen Wiig is a hair chameleon. Like many actresses, she switches up her style depending on the character she’s playing, so we’re used to seeing her with a host of different looks. For last night’s Critics Choice Awards, however, she debuted perhaps her most dramatic transformation yet.
Swapping her usual shade of blonde hair for a raven colour, the 48 year old looked completely different as she posed for glam red carpet snaps. Though she’s been wearing her hair in a pixie style crop for a couple of months, we’re used to seeing it in a mid-blonde shade. Now, she’s given her whole beauty look an overhaul with the help of a mirror-shiny dark colour.
It seems we aren’t the only ones struggling to recognise the Bridesmaids actress with her new ‘do. Twitter fans also took to the site last night to live tweet their surprise at her gorgeous new look.
“Is that Kristen Wiig,” asked one, while another seemed equally bemused, saying: “I was like… Kristen… Kristen… Kristen… WIIG? OMG!”
“Kristen Wiig is a goddess!!” said a fourth.
A fifth wrote: “The black hair is giving!!”
Kristen also proved just how incredible she can look with basically any hair cut or colour. Considering she’s been recently sporting a 70s-like perm for new movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (if you haven’t yet watched this, you need to!), this new chic style is a drastic change. Asides from perms and pixies, she’s also nailed red hair, balayage, a short sweeping fringe and a slicked back bob. Whatever will she do next, we wonder?
In other awards show news from last night, Harry Potter star Emma Watson brought back a forgotten hair trend for the BAFTA red carpet. The 31 year old wore her shoulder length hair in loose waves with a centre parting, slicked down at the crown and held in place using several kirby grips at either side.
So that’s where all of our kirby grips have gone!
