Halsey is something of a fashion and beauty chameleon. The pop star never shies away from bold choices, and her latest look is no exception. The American singer has unveiled a dramatic hair transformation, ditching her dark, waist-length braids in favor of a buzz cut, which she revealed on Instagram in a photo captioned “just in time 4 beanie weather”.

The closely-cropped cut may be a departure for Halsey, but she’s not the first famous female to have shorn off her long locks and looked fabulous doing it.

Here are five other celebrities who have perfected the shaved head look.

Millie Bobby Brown

British actor Millie Bobby Brown was required to shave her head at the age of 14 for her role as ‘Eleven’ in Netflix series Stranger Things, but she wasn’t worried about waving goodbye to her long brown hair.

Sharing a video on Instagram, the star described it as a “life-changing moment”, saying she wanted to “inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important.”

Adwoa Aboah

London-born model Adwoa Aboah says that finally shaving her head after years of struggling to find hairdressers who understand afro hair was empowering, and it boosted her modeling career too.

She wrote in an essay: “I’ve grown up and I’ve learned to appreciate looking unique, and not having long, blond locks… at last. That in itself is the most important achievement.”

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman perfected one of the more iconic celebrity buzz cuts. Not only was Portman required to have a buzz cut for her role in V For Vendetta, but the actor also had to have her head shaved on camera as part of the 2015 movie.

The American later showed off her super-short locks on the red carpet while promoting Star Wars Episode 3.
