Whether they shaved it off for a role or just for fun, here are 10+ celeb women who absolutely rocked a shaved head!

1. Amber Rose

It's hard to imagine the star without her shaved head.

In an interview with Refinery29, she shared that she was inspired by Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" video. Copying that look was her way of rebelling.

2. Anne Hathaway

When the actress chopped her hair for the role of Fantine in Les Miserables, she was inconsolable.

"Cutting my hair reduced me to, like, mental patient-level crying," she said on Live With Kelly!_While she may not have liked it, it looked great AND she won the Oscar.

3. Kellie Pickler

The American Idol alum shaved her golden locks for a good cause.

She was showing solidarity to her childhood best friend who was battling breast cancer. "It's been a great life-changing day," she wrote on Twitter when sharing the picture.

4. Toni Collette

In 2016, the actress shaved her head five times to play a cancer sufferer in the film, Miss You Already.

In addition to providing her dedication to her craft, she proved that she can absolutely rock a chic buzz cut.

5. Kristen Stewart

The Twilight alum could pull off any hairstyle. Long, pixie cut, shaved off — doesn't matter, it all looks great.

Since she had to wear a helmet a lot in Underwater, she shaved her head to make the experience easier.

6. Cate Blanchett

When she shaved her hair off in 2002's Heaven, she told The Daily Telegraph that she found the experience "liberating" and that she'd do it again.

7. Lupita Nyong'o

Thanks to her impressive movie career, we've seen her in various hairstyles. One of her hairstyles in Black Panther was evencoined the “Wakanda knot."

But the buzz cut is definitely her best look — it makes all of her gorgeous features really pop.

It's a look she's rocked since she was 19.

"Once I did it, it was very liberating, but I also felt very naked. When you feel the wind on your scalp, it's like, Oh, my God. But I've kept my hair short ever since," she told Redbook.

8. Millie Bobby Brown

The actress was only 13 when she shaved her head for the role of Eleven in Stranger Things.

Losing her hair at a young age wasn't easy, but she totally pulled it off! She even called it "the most empowering moment" of her whole life.

9. Demi Moore

The actress traded in her pin-straight black locks for a shaved her head for the 1997 action flick, G.I. Jane.

While the movie flopped in the end and she won the Razzi for worst actress, her consolation prize is how good the buzz cut looked.

When the actress debuted her shaved head on Instagram in 2020, she was all smiles.

It was the result of the treatment she underwent for her M.S. Her hair has since grown into an equally gorgeous pixie cut.

11. Danai Gurira

If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, you're probably a fan of the actress who plays Michonne.

While she's known for her dreadlocks on the show, she usually rocks a shaved head in real life.

12. Jessie J

The first time the singer shaved her head, it was for charity. She raised funds for Comic Relief.

The other times she's shaved her head, she did it because she had fallen in love with the short look. We love it on her, too!

13. Charlize Theron

When you think of shaved heads, Theron's Max Max: Fury Road look comes to mind.

She told Entertainment Tonight that the idea to shave her head for the role was all her own. "I just had this moment where I was like, 'I need to shave my head!"

Similar to Kristen Stewart, she didn't want to fuss with her hair during filming.

"I'm going to be in the desert. I'm a new mother. Let's just shave it.' The next day we did it. I can't even imagine doing it any other way," Theron said.

14. Solange

While we think Solange rocks a shaved head, some on Twitter likened her 2009 shave to Britney Spears' 2007 meltdown.

This caused her to fire back on Twitter: "i. have. done. this. twice. in. my. life. i. was 16. i was 18. did. not care about your opinion. then. dont. care. now." You tell, em!

15. Cara Delevingne

When the model landed the role of a woman fighting cancer in Life in a Year, she made the creative decision to shave her head.

This was despite her agents and managers telling her otherwise. In the end, the risk paid off!

"When it's a part like that — especially when it's about cancer — I needed to feel what it would be like to have no hair," she explained to Teen Vogue.

In the end, going through that experience taught her more about beauty than she ever expected.

"The way you look, I think, it's so important to feel beautiful, no matter if you have hair. It doesn't matter at all."

16. Natalie Portman

The Oscar-winning actress is so dedicated to her craft that she once shaved her head for the movie V for Vendetta.

Not only did she look super chic with it, but she also won the best actress award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films for her role.
