It seems like now-a-days women are shaving their heads bald left and right. Some women shave their heads for roles in movies, such as Charlize Theron and Sigourney Weaver, some women shave their head due to cancer, like Kellie Pickler and Robin Roberts, and some women just feel more beautiful with a baldhead, like Amber Rose. And then, there are some women who shave their heads in public for the attention. Oh wait, that’s just Britney Spears.
Take a look as we countdown the top 10 female celebrities that have shaved their head.
10. Sigourney Weaver
Sigourney Weaver, the actress known for her roles in the four Alien films, is one of the actresses on our list who shaved her head for a role in a film. Sigourney’s character in Alien 3 is an inmate in prison who must blend in with the men prisoners. Therefore, Weaver decided to get into full character and shave her head bald. Thankfully for everyone, Sigourney grew her hair out for the fourth Alien movie.
9. Cynthia Nixon
Cynthia Nixon is another actress who shaved her head for a role. Cynthia, who was affected by breast cancer in real life, went bald for her role in the Broadway play “Wit”, in which Nixon portrays a professor who is diagnosed with cancer. Cynthia debuted her shiny top on Live! With Kelly and told Kelly she “liked it, but I don’t think I’m gonna keep it forever.” Good decision, Cynthia; we love your red locks!
8. Charlize Theron
In 2012, Charlize Theron was spotted with a dark, shaved head in South Africa. It has been said that Charlize shaved her head for her upcoming role in 2014’s Mad Max. We hope she wins an award for the role, because not only did she lose her beautiful hair, but she also exposed that she’s not a true blonde! However, Charlize is one of the few who can actually pull off a shaved head.
7. Robin Roberts
Robin Roberts shocked the Good Morning America fans when she announced she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. However, Robin overcame the disease and continued her success on Good Morning America. Fast-forward five years, and Robin shocks the nation again when she announces she has been diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the blood and bone marrow. Robin shaved her head and the chemotherapy treatment caused her to lose what hair she had left. Robin returned to Good Morning America 174 days after her bone marrow transplant.
6. Willow Smith
Willow Smith, who is famous for her song “Whip My Hair,” is no longer whippin’ that hair back and forth. In February 2012, the 11-year-old singer posted the following picture on Twitter. We guess Willow didn’t love the bald look, because recently Willow was spotted with her hair grown out to a miniature Afro. Lucky for Willow, she can pull off almost any hairstyle.
5. Amber Rose
Amber Rose, the woman who dated Kanye West and is now Wiz Khalifa’s baby momma, is probably one of the only ladies who looks so good with a bald head, that the ‘do has influenced other ladies to go bald. Amber has been rockin’ a bald head for a while now, and we can’t help but think she’s the reason why so many ladies are going bald now-a-days. Amber looks so great with a bald head, that when she recently posted pictures with different wigs on, the fans immediately wanted her to take the wigs off.
4. Kellie Pickler
Kellie Pickler stunned everyone when she buzzed her beautiful locks off on Good Morning America to support her best friend who is a breast cancer survivor. Kellie’s best friend told GMA, “If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it.” Kellie has started to grow her hair out, but Kellie looks beautiful with or without hair! You go girl!
3. Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman is another actress who took it to the extreme and shaved her head to get into character. In 2006, the gorgeous Natalie Portman shaved her head for the movie V for Vendetta in which she portrays freedom fighter Evey. Everyone was shocked when Natalie showed up to the premiere, not because her head was shaved, but because of how beautiful she looked with a shaved head. Natalie has since grown her hair out, but we wouldn’t hate it if the shaved ‘do came back!
2. Demi Moore
Demi Moore famously shaved her locks for her role in the 1997 movie G.I. Jane. Her role in the movie earned her a lot of positive attention, and her career has only skyrocketed from there. While Demi’s hair has since grown, along with her love for Whip-Its, we will never forget how beautiful Demi Moore looked as a bald lady.
1. Britney Spears
Oh Britney Spears. Who could ever forget her 2007 meltdown, which included her shaving her head at a salon for all of the paparazzi and world to see?! While we may never know if she shaved her head for the attention, or if she shaved her head to get rid of any traces of Meth in her system like her ex-manager claims, we know that the image of Britney with a bald head and going crazy will forever stand in our minds. Thankfully for everyone, Britney has bounced back into a full Britney comeback and now has a full head hair!
