The average woman spends hours each week blowing out, straightening, or curling her locks and stresses every two months about the next haircut and color – but not these 15 courageous movie stars and musicians. From Natalie Portman getting buzzed in V For Vendetta to Britney Spears‘ breakdown to Amber Rose amping up her outrageous outfits with a bleached ‘do; each one of these celebs threw to the wind what so many women consider to be a defining part of their appearance. With little more than some extra eye makeup, they pull it off. Here are 15 cueballin’ babes who made bald hot. [Photos: Getty Images]
Recently Jennifer Love (To Bedazzle Her Vagina) Hewitt debuted a new wavy bob cut just a few weeks after announcing her split from unfunny man Jamie Kennedy. She’s obviously not the first person to rush to the salon in tears immediately following a break up (TMI Alert: we chopped off over a foot of hair after giving our college boyfriend the heave-ho); hair therapy is often the preferred method for repairing heartache, coming in second only to a one night stand with a box or two of Franzia.
Jennifer’s not alone - Lindsay Lohan is known to dye her hair depending on where she stands with Samantha Ronson, Kim Kardashian went blond after parting ways with Reggie Bush and Britney Spears took it to the next level (the next level being: crazy) when she buzzed her weave off after ending her marriage with Kevin Federline.
Take a tour of the best celebrity break up hair transformations below; by the time you’re finished checking out the before and after pics Sandra Bullock will probably have a blond bob.
No, really – she could! Good ol’ Jessica Simpson her BFF 4 lyfe Ken Paves got through a boring plane trip playing a little game of fun with wigs recently, and she shared the results with her Twitter followers. While her headgear looks like something Kristen Wiig would wear for one of her SNL characters, we think Jess could definitely pull off a shorter ‘do. Try to argues with these reasons: it shows off her lovely face more, she’s got the perfect jawline for it and her long neck compliments the cut. Plus the publicity from a Locks of Love celebrity hair donation never hurts. Chop chop, Jess! [Photos: Twitter]
Kelly Osbourne may be taking her older, more refined image a little too far. The Dancing With The Stars finalist aged a couple decades before partying the Pailhouse in LA yesterday night, sporting dyed purple-gray hair (she’s saying “lavender”) and topping a bra-flashing flower print dress with a badass leather jacket that screamed “mom’s first night out in months.” We thought about putting her picture next to Helen Mirren‘s, but it turns out the aging Oscar winner still dyes her hair blond most of the time. Change it back, Kelly!

We thought Leona Lewis‘ black beret and vintage-looking ensemble was striking when she wore it to the ELLE Style awards this weekend, which is why we thought for a quick minute that Tyra Banks was trying to rip off her look.
Ty-Ty went a little old-school glam as well when she showed up on the red carpet for the CW “It’s A Reality” television event in New York last night, and for a second we thought she opted for a beret, too…until we realized it was just her hair. Both women look chic, but we’re going to to give this one to Leona purely because she’s inspiring us to jet off to Paris for the weekend (in our film noir fantasy world). [Photos: Getty Images]
Just as Lady Gaga‘s international fame continues to reach new heights, so does the outrageousness of her hairstyles. A year ago, the Gagster debuted her now-trademark blonde hair bow. Apparently she has since poured water on it, causing it to multiply mogwai-style, or so goes our theory. Easily spotted leaving her London hotel this afternoon, Gaga’s mound of lavender, white, and platinum blonde bows topped off her leopard print ensemble and fringed Chanel sunglasses. Here’s hoping it was a rare, sunny day in foggy Londontown and this Gremlin of a hairdo melted into puddle of polyester. [Photos: Getty Images]
Hayden Panettiere showed off a new hairstyle at a benefit for The Whaleman in Hollywood last night. We’re not sure these new bangs are too flattering, but if you’re going to use a late ’70s phrase like “save the whales,” you might as well look like Suzanne Somers while you do it.

The family that shares hair-styling products together, stays together! And the other things we thought about when seeing this very cute shot of the Beckham clan out at the Lakers game were: a) at least they have loads of money to spend on these gravity-defying hair products and b) we hope no-one goes near them with a naked flame.
Victoria sported an all-new tousled hairstyle, while David kept it simple with a sweepy up do (and yes, we’re still loving that beard). Meanwhile their three-year-old son Cruz has challenged Maddox Jolie in the who-looks-cuter-with-a-pre-school-Mohican stakes. Adorable! [Photo: Getty Images]
