For a woman, shaving her head is a pretty bold step, regardless of whether she did it by choice or by necessity. Most women are used to adhering to beauty standards and are not always ready for such experiments.

But is there anything to be afraid of? After all, shaving your head can free you (from conventions), change your life, or just make you laugh. Today, OBOZ.UA offers you a look at celebrities who have done it. And these women with bald heads show that it is beautiful and sexy, and can inspire you to create your own image with a shaved head.

Florence Pugh

When actress Florence Pugh appeared at the Met Gala 2023 in a head-to-toe Valentino Haute Couture suit, she impressed with something else: a shaved head.

Later, Florence explained that she had to shave her head for her role in the movie "We Live In Time", which she is currently filming. The actress shaved her head a few weeks ago but wore wigs so that no one would know about the new look ahead of time.

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman shaved her head while filming the movie "V for Vendetta" back in 2005. The shooting took place in one shot, but the hair did not grow back as quickly. Did it upset the actress?"I was excited to shave my head – it's something I've wanted to do for a while, and now I had a good excuse," Portman said at the time. However, she also admitted that it was difficult and unusual because of the constant attention she received."I'm not used to being looked at so much. Walking down the street, I can usually get angry, and people stare at you when you're a girl with a shaved head," Natalie explained.

Joey King

Actress Joey King has shaved her head three times over the years and said it's something every woman should do at least once: "A lot of people made fun of me when I was shaved. A lot of people said really mean things. But when I had short hair, I felt more confident. I felt very powerful."

King also assures that she will definitely shave her head again: "I have never felt freer or more in tune with my beauty."

Cate Blanchett

Just like Natalie Portman in "V for Vendetta", Cate Blanchett shaved her head for the 2002 movie "Sky".

"Shaving your hair is so liberating. I had to do it once for a movie role, but I've also done it periodically. At school, it was probably a rebellion, but I also cut my hair a few years ago and am thinking about doing it again," Blanchett said.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron shaved her head for her role in the movie "Mad Max: Fury Road", creating an unforgettable image that fans love. This movie was filmed in the desert, so there was a practical side to shaving her head: it would have been simply too hard and hot for months with long hair.

"After shaving, I realized how much time we spend on our hair. Also, I think I threw away two trash bags of hair products and brushes. There's definitely something very liberating about it."

Demi Moore

Demi Moore shaved her head in the 90s to play the lead role in the movie "G.I. Jane". Although this was not her first role, the dramatic change in her hairstyle attracted the attention of the audience.

In recent years, Demi said that while she used to take an experimental approach to her hair, she is now much more protective of her long hair: "For different roles, I've done everything with my hair. I've shaved it. I've dyed it. I had a bob-cut hairstyle. However, as I've gotten older, I also know that I have nothing to prove. So if they want my hair differently, they can give me a wig," the actress said in an interview in 2022.

Kate Hudson

The actress shaved her head for her role in the movie Music in 2017. Kate recalls how excited and nervous she was: "I thought: Oh! What's my head going to look like? I was panicking."

But the result stunned her: "I didn't think I would like it so much. It's kind of liberating." A year later, the actress admitted that she felt nostalgic for her shaved head.

Cynthia Nixon

Known for her signature red bob, "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon shaved her head for the Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway production in 2012.

"I was always curious to see how I would look shaved. However, I thought it would take away the fuss, and free up time. But I had to shave my head every day." The actress admitted that she liked her new look, but it's unlikely that she will cut her hair like this all the time.

Jessie J

The Domino singer shaved her head on air to support Comic Relief on Red Nose Day in 2013."I want to stay in this look for a while. I wanted to make a statement with this act. I don't think there's any point in shaving your head for charity if you're just going to grow it back the next day," she explained at the time.
