Kristen Stewart isn’t known for her cheery smile in paprazzi shots, as the star is notorious for her dislike of being publicly photographed, but recent pictures of the actress reveal some shocking hair loss that friends claim may be due to stress over losing Robert Pattinson, the Daily Mail reports.
The 23-year old actress was recently photographed in Berlin, Germany, where she is currently filming her new movie, “Sils Maria”, wearing her long brown hair swept back to the side, noticeably bald in some spots. Hair loss is often a symptom of severe stress, and insiders recently told Now magazine that there is widespread concern over the star in her circles, as her friends reportedly believe she needs a break as she is becoming increasingly overwhelmed after losing her “Twilight” beau Robert Pattinson earlier this year.
“Kristen’s circle are so concerned about her that two of her friends have flown to Germany to see her,” an insider told Now. “They want to take her to a de-stressing yoga retreat on the outskirts of Berlin. They’ve also begged Rob to visit her on set. They fear the stress is getting worse because she’s been trying to make contact with him and he’s ignoring all of her call.”
While conflicting reports over the past month have claimed that Stewart and Pattinson are likely getting back together, it looks as though that may not happen as soon as fans were hoping, if at all. However, all reports on Stewart seem to confirm that the actress has been badly missing her ex-boyfriend, who broke things off with her for good this spring, allegedly because he could no longer trust her in the wake of her highly publicized affair with her then-married film director, Rupert Sanders.
Though the two have remained friends and Pattinson has even visited Stewart’s home in Los Feliz, Calif., it seems as though Pattinson may not be so privvy to the reunion that Stewart has been planning over the past few months. This has taken quite a toll on the star, especially where her hair is concerned. The actress has been seen wearing extensions to cover up her hair loss while on the set of her new movie.
“It appears Kristen has telogen effluvium,” hair expert Gary Heron from The Hair Centre in Westminster said to the Daily Mail. “This means the growth of hair is interrupted prematurely and the growth cycle isn’t as it should be. Her hair is very thin and the loss looks extensive. Kristen is far too young for this not to have been caused by stress. To remedy the situation, Kristen needs to change her lifestyle. She should start eating a balanced diet, which will assist regrowth, and take better care of her hair.”

A Swedish researcher has won the lg Nobel Prize for improbable research after he solved the mystery of why people’s hair was inexplicably turning green in southern Sweden last year.
Johan Pettersson, an environmental engineer from Trelleborg, was awarded the parody prize at Harvard University in Boston on Thursday.
“My children say that it’s only their dad who can win such a prize. They really think I’m a bit of a nerd,” he told Sveriges Television (SVT).
” A Swede who had previously won the prize called me to tell me. It was extremely overwhelming and he had to ring twice so it would sink in.”
Petterson’s discovery came after several formerly blonde inhabitants of Anderslov in southern Sweden suddenly had green hair.
The engineer came to the conclusion that it was the copper pipes that were to blame, as they weren’t properly coated in the new houses.
Hot water being left in the pipes overnight caused the copper to seep into the water system, leaving the tap water with five times as much copper as usual.
As copper has a naturally green dying effect, any residents in new houses in the area who showered using the tap water found they suddenly had green hair.
According to the prize’s official website, the lg Nobel Prizes honour achievements that first make people laugh then think.
“The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative – and spur people’s interest in science, medicine and technology.”

KRISTEN STEWART DISPLAYS NOTICEABLE HAIR LOSS ‘FOLLOWING SPLIT FROM ROBERT PATTINSON’
She’s had a difficult few months following her split from Robert Pattinson.
And it seems Kristen’s traumatic personal life has taken a toll on the 23-year-old actress, who has been seen with what seems to be a large bald patch on her head.
Kristin, who usually conceals her locks beneath hats and caps, was pictured in Berlin, Germany, last month displaying the dramatic hair loss on the right side of her scalp – thought to be down to stress.
Stress related: Kristen Stewart displayed noticeable hair loss in Berlin, Germany, last month.
Thinning locks: It is believed that Kristen’s hair loss stems from the stress she has been under following her split from Robert Pattinson earlier this year
That’s better: Kristen’s hair looked fine from the other side, as she wears it swept over
In fact, the hair loss is so severe that Kristen’s friends are said to be getting increasingly concerned about her fragile state of mind.
Time for a change: A hair expert said Kristen needs to reduce the amount of stress in her life
A source told Now magazine: ‘Kristen’s circle are so concerned about her that two of her friends have flown to Germany to see her. They want to take her to a de-stressing yoga retreat on the outskirts of Berlin. They’ve also begged Rob to visit her on set. They fear the stress is getting worse because she’s been trying to make contact with him and he’s ignoring all of her calls.’
It was reported recently that Kristen has been trying to arrange a reunion with her Twilight ex Robert, from whom she split earlier this year after their relationship failed to get past her infidelity with married film director Rupert Sanders.
But Robert is said to be unwilling to give Kristen another chance, having decided once and for all that their romance is over.
Kristen has been in Berlin shooting her new movie Sils Maria in Germany, alongside co-star Juliette Binoche.
Hiding the evidence: Kristen was later seen wearing her brunette hair tied up into a bun
According to reports, Kristen has been using hair extensions in a bid to conceal the hair loss while shooting the movie.
Hair expert Gary Heron from The Hair Centre in Westminster said after seeing the pictures of Kristen: “It appears Kristen has telogen effluvium. This means the growth of hair is interrupted prematurely and the growth cycle isn’t as it should be.
‘Her hair is very thin and the loss looks extensive. Kristen is far too young for this not to have been caused by stress. To remedy the situation, Kristen needs to change her lifestyle.
‘She should start eating a balanced diet, which will assist regrowth, and take better care of her hair”.
Puffing away: Later in the day, Kristen was seen smoking as she enjoyed a day out with her friends in Berlin
Quick change: Kristen changed and wore a shirt and jacket over her white T-shirt
Retail therapy: Kristen and her friend were seen heading into a clothes store

When Nadine Dorries spoke out about her alopecia on Daybreak earlier this week, she referred to the condition as a “confidence stealer”.
Although we don’t quite agree that it’s vastly different for men than it is for women – she said on the show that -”When men go bald and when they lose their hair, what they tend to do is have a mid-life crisis and go out and have an affair, but what women tend to do is to actually go into their houses and lock the door” – she did shine a spotlight on an issue that is often embarrassing and difficult to talk about.
Dorries isn’t completely sure what has caused her alopecia, and there are several types. Androgenic alopecia is the standard male and female pattern baldness, while traction alopecia is caused by pressure to the hair, so if the hair is tied up too tightly or held tightly in a wrapper of cloth.
There are some types of alopecia however, which are linked to stress, which is anagen effluvium, where it occurs three months after a stressful event, like a bereavement or emotional stress, and alopecia areata, when the hair falls out quite quickly and in a circular pattern.
Gary Heron, Head of Practice and former alopecia sufferer at The Westminster Practice spoke to the HuffPost UK Lifestyle about how stress can affect your hair. He said “It fluctuates from recession to recession, we have seen more alopecia areata across the board, which are stresses from recession in 2007. We’re seeing more aggressive cases too, where there’s around 20-30% hair loss, which is a lot. If you’re stressed out, your auto immune system runs completely flat, the stress builds up, and if you’re the kind of person who implodes rather than explodes, you’re more likely to get it”.
He adds “It’s also immune system related and genetic related, so in groups of a family, one might have asthma, one might have eczema and another alopecia. If your boats are lined up the wrong way you might be prone to it”.
According to Gary, alopecia barbae – which affects a man’s beard – is definitely on the increase simply because more men are growing beards these days. It might sound obvious, but if you are stressed out, or are noticing hair loss, here are the following tips that can make life a lot easier:
1. Take a long, hard look at your diet. If you’re vegetarian, you want to make sure that you are supplementing your diet with protein you might not get otherwise. Gary remarked on a woman who was cooking really well for her family but then spent so much time running around that she ate really poorly herself.
2. There isn’t enough time in the day to do everything, but that’s what tomorrow is for. Sounds obvious, but prioritise what needs to be done today, and don’t beat yourself with a proverbial stick if you can’t finish it all.
3. Gary recommends the ‘Churchill method’ of sitting down with a pen and paper and writing down all the good and bad things in your life. Then making an effort to tackle the bad.
4. If you have alopecia and your hair is starting to grow back, don’t unduly stress yourself by worrying the hair will stay fine and thin. It takes time.
5. Don’t force yourself to go out if you are feeling rubbish, but similarly don’t hide away either. Confide in your close friends who will be able to keep things in perspective for you, and more importantly, take your mind off the matter.
6. Lastly, if you are suffering bad hair loss, as in the pattern is turning from a circle to an exclamation mark, then make an appointment with a trichologist who might be able to point out the triggers setting it off.
