SANTA MONICA, California — Later this year, the stars of “Twilight” will return in the highly anticipated sequel “New Moon.” But first, they’ll be undergoing an extreme makeover.

“I think we are just perfecting it,” Nikki Reed explained when she stopped by the MTV studio recently, revealing the conversations she’s had with new franchise director Chris Weitz. “I think it will be a little bit different, and we’ll perfect it for the best.”

It’s no secret that the team on the original “Twilight” struggled mightily — and occasionally found their efforts enraging fans — as they attempted to perfect the hairstyles of the Cullen clan. Now, with a new director and bigger budget, Reed revealed that Weitz is determined to get things right.
