Kirsten Dunst hairstyles that have had us heading to the hairdressers

Kirsten Dunst has been rocking the red carpet since 1994 when she starred in Interview with a Vampire and in more than 20 years she’s mastered the hairstyles that work for her and managed to change them up over the years too.

This week as her latest film, The Beguiled, hits cinemas we take a look at some of our favourite hairstyles from the actress that have left us green with envy and doing our best to recreate them at home.

These are the standout styles of Kirsten Dunst with a throwback to 15 year old Kirsten in 1997, we’re pretty sure that hairstyle would have been trendy at the time.

Kirsten Dunst's shorter hair

Kirsten has flirted with shorter hair over the years, and she most recently went for the chop in 2015 and wore the look into 2016 too.

She said it was months of contemplating the cut before she lopped off 10 inches of long blond hair that resulted a grazing bob.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: “I had bleached my hair the year before, and Cervando was like, ‘Let’s cut this shit off!’”

The actress’ long-time hair stylist, Cervando Maldonado, who did the chop, says actresses are craving a ‘short cut that’s still casual, sexy and loose.

"Kirsten's so beautiful and can wear any style, but I like her with a bob — it suits her face very well," says Maldonado. His key for "defining waves and getting pieciness" is Oribe Curl by Definition Creme: "It's about a bob with Brigitte Bardot texture."

Oribe Curl by Definition Creme 5.9 oz
  • Defines and elongates curls. Crunch-free, satin finish. Humidity protection.

Bejewelled hairstyles

Want to add something special to your beauty look, but can’t really do much other than add a simple curl? A bejewelled hair accessory is perfect for events and occasions throughout the year.

Take inspiration from Kirsten for this, we particularly love this look from Cannes.

Hairstylist Marcus Francis explains the look: “The feeling Kirsten and I were going for was flirty and undone with a bit of a whimsical effect to play off of her girly Dolce & Gabbana headband.

“Subtle flyaways add to this style, making it more wearable and modern.”

The big red colour change

Kirsten’s been blonde pretty much for all of her career, except when she, of course, took on the iconic role of Mary-Jane in the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man films. Speaking about her big transition, she’s previously said:

“In the first film, they dyed the front of my head and did a half-wig. Then, in the second one, they did a wig, which I thought looked beautiful. And in the third one, we thought, let’s just do it.”

She says it wasn’t the easiest shade to wear on the red carpet. “My hair looks orangey here. I’m so pale – you need more of an olive skin tone to pull off that fiery colour.”

Gorgeous updo hair inspiration from Kirsten

The gorgeous actress admits she likes to keep this pretty low-key, but likes to dress up for the red carpet when she’s wearing designer pieces.

While she usually lets her hair down and free, she’s sported some gorgeous up-dos across the years.

Everything from slicked back styles, to simple ballerina buns.

The great thing about these hairstyles, they’re all completely easy to copy. It might just take a little practice when it comes to the retro hairstyles. But they definitely make a glamorous impact.
