Getting into character! Kristen Stewart debuted new orange hair for an upcoming project she's working on via Instagram on Friday, April 4. The selfie, which also shows the actress makeup-free, was posted by Maison de Cheveux salon in New Orleans.

"Kristen Stewart gettin her hair ready for a new role! #americamultra #awesomecolor #houseofhair," the salon's Twitter account captioned the picture. The Twilight alum flashes a peace sign for the camera, as her new dyed locks are swept to one side.

"The director of the movie told us what color to dye Kristen's hair," the owner of the salon tells Us. "[Stewart] was very sweet and cool."

The new look is a drastic change for Stewart, but it may not last too long. Last January, the 23-year-old star admitted she plans to chop off all her hair one day.

"If I wasn't an actor, I would definitely do things to my hair. I would cut it more, I would dye it more," Stewart revealed in an interview with Into the Gloss. "At some point I want to do a total boy cut, completely -- not a pretty, girly version -- like a straight up James Dean haircut."

"And then, I'm definitely going to shave my head before I die. I will definitely tattoo my head while it's shaved before my hair grows back," she continued. "I'm not sure which part, probably the bottom quadrant in the back. I don't know what the tattoo would be, yet. Still thinking."
