hot women with shaved heads

If you are a sports fan, then chances are you heard about the two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders who shaved their heads to raise money for cancer research. Actually, even if you are not a sports fan, if you live in North America, there is a good chance you heard about it. Why? Because it always seems to be big news when an attractive woman buzzes off her locks. I don’t exactly know why that seems to fascinate people (I’m not a sociologist, obviously), but it does.

And since I’m not one to go against the grain, I thought I’d give the people (that’s you) what they want today by doing a list of gorgeous women who have shaved their heads. Some of them did it for movie roles. Some of them did it to make a fashion statement. Some of them did it for charity. But they all went bald at one time or another, and they are all generally considered to be good-looking. So take a look, won’t you?

20. Britney Spears

Well, unlike everyone else on this list, Britney Spears didn’t still look great with a shaved head. In fact, she looked downright scary. But she is the most famous celebrity head-shaver of all time, so I just couldn’t help but include her here. Besides, the fact that she looked awful when had less to do with the fact that she sheered her locks than the fact that she was suffering a drug-induced nervous breakdown. And, you know, under better circumstances, she’s still very attractive.

19. Jaime Winstone


British actress Jaime Winstone chopped off all her hair for a role on the UK television series “Mad Dogs,” and reported that the do left her feeling “very liberated.”

While I’m sure that’s true, something tells me she’ll end up growing it back fairly soon…unlike our next woman on the list.

18. Sinead O'Connor

Yeah, remember Sinead O’Connor? Had that one megahit, “Nothing Compares to You,” then tore up a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live? Well, she’s kind of nuts, but quite pretty—or she used to be—and very committed to the shaved head look.

17. Sigourney Weaver

The excellent Sigourney Weaver shaved her head for Alien 3 in 1992—a film for which she was paid $4 million.

I’d shave my head for $500.

16. Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett went bald for the 2002 film Heaven. Like Jaime Winstone, she also described the experience as “liberating.”

15. Kellie Pickler

Finally, someone who didn’t shave her head for money…or because she’s nuts. Instead, country singer and former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler (what a name) shaved her head to support a friend who’d been diagnosed with breast cancer.

I think we could probably all use a friend like Kellie, no?

14. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway shaved her head for her role in the upcoming Les Miserables. However, it turns out that she was by far the most self-conscious woman on this list, as it was impossible to find a photo of her with her hair cropped all the way down to her scalp. Instead, we’ll have to settle with this photo of her hair at pixie-cut length and use our imagination.

13. Demi Moore

Ah yes, the pre-Ashton Kutcher Demi Moore. She was so hot, even when she shaved her head for her role in the Navy Seals movie G.I. Jane.

12. Chrystal B. & Megan M.

Of course we have to include the women who inspire this list, right? They’re names Chrystal B. (left) and Megan M. (right) got their heads shaved in front of 70,000 people for charity.

Now that is brave…but of course not nearly as brave as the people battling cancer.

11. Solange Knowles


Interestingly, Beyoncé’s little sister, Solange, used to joke about how all the comparison’s to her sister might lead to her “turn into Britney—shave [her] head and go totally crazy.” So when she actually did buzz her hair back in 2009, people wondered if she’d finally snapped.

10. Ajak Deng

This 21-year-old Sudanese model makes the buzz cut look pretty glamorous.

9. Charlize Theron

This gorgeous South African made herself ugly for her role in Monsters. Now she’s shaved her head for her role in Mad Max: Fury Road, which is currently filming in her native country.

8. Persis Khambatta

Oh yeah, this one if for the nerds. This gorgeous Indian model-turned-actress played Lieutenant Ilia in the very first Star Trek movie back in 1979. The character was a member of an alien species known as Deltans, who were hairless, so Khambatta shaved her head to get the part.

You can bet she starred in the romantic dreams of Trekkies everywhere after the movie came out.

7. Barbara Rossi

Sexy Brazilian model Barbara “Babi” Rossi got her head shaved on live television for some reason. Of course, she’s still crazy hot.

6. Cassie

A lot of celebs have gone with some variation of this hairdo, including Miley Cyrus and Rihanna. However, most of them don’t go all-in line Cassie, here. It’s not a complete head-shave, but it’s a pretty serious hair cut, so it counts in my book.

5. Amber Rose

Model and serial hip-hop girlfriend/fiancée Amber Rose is one of the few famous women out there who have really committed to the buzzed look. And, I must say, it really works for her.

4. Chrisette Michele

R&B singer Chrisette Michele definitely pulls off the buzz cut.

Now, as for that necklace, well, it’s another story.


3. Megan Fox

I think Megan Fox would look good in a sumo suit. She certainly still looks absolutely gorgeous with a shaved head.

Of course, this is just a photoshop job, but it proves the point.

(Sorry, I didn’t want to include any fake shaved heads, but I couldn’t resist here.)

2. Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman shaved her head for her role in the film V is for Vengence, and she was not shy about her new hairstyle at all.

Then again, if you’re as pretty as Natalie Portman, what would you have to be shy about?

1. Erika Badu

This one I did not see coming. I mean, I always thought Erika Badu was pretty, but I guess I didn’t realize she was this pretty.

I also didn’t realize she had gone with the shaved head look. I must say, it suits her pretty well.
