10 Celebrity Haircuts that Rock

Posted by Rebecca on August 19th, 2010

We all like to pay attention to what’s happening in the world of hair, no? Don’t lie. And if you’re like me, you’re so totally sick of seeing long, wavy-ish touseled locks that lots of celebrities hawked this season. Come on, people, you’re CELEBRITIES. Let’s stop playing it safe and get EDGY, for chrissakes! Here’s a salute to ten celebs who do (and continue to) push the envelope when it comes to their hair (and most likely, other things).

1. Carolina D’Amore

She’s a socialite and model. Though she isn’t exactly Julia Roberts famous, look at this fade!  I’m sorry, but fades rock, especially a girly one with a bow.  Props to this model who decided that the plain jane look just wouldn’t do.

2. Bai Ling

I know, I find her as obnoxious as you do. BUT- she knows how to rock a severe cut and a bang, no? Bai Ling often dresses like a hoochie, but her hair is never boring. Here, she rocks her signature bangs and some tight waves for a look that’s far from forgettable.

3. Rhianna

Rhianna MADE this list.  The girl’s got talent, but she’s always got the standout hair cut to match.  Am I right?  She goes short a lot, which makes her look far edgier and not as cute (and she’s so cuuuuteee!) as she is.  Here, she’s got a variation on her mohawk look, which is girly and playful, but still edgy as hell.

4. Kelly Osbourne

K-Oz has a lot to live up to in the world of hair. Her mom sports that acid red cut, and her dad’s…all over the place. We LOVE her greyish hair tone because it says 1. That Grey can still be sexy, and don’t be ashamed of it, 2. and that grey can still be chic and youthful. Mom? Are you listening? You, too, grandma. Grey is back in a major way, and Kelly rocks it.

5. Russell Brand

We had to sneak a dude in here, especially this dude. Brand is known for his shaggy, wavy, rocker hair, and it is sexy! Unless you like those pussy pretty boys all over Hollywood, in which case pop your collar and say buh-bye to this list, because it only gets awesomer.

6. Amber Rose

Amber Rose has a haircut….er, I mean, a non-haircut that ROCKS. I love her tanned body and that chicken fuzz that sits atop her head. Don’t you? It’s like I’m looking at a hot, edgy Easter basket. Mommy like!

7.  Lady Gaga

Of COURSE Lady Gaga is on this list. I know she often gets into Madonna territory, but she’s always changing up her hair so that it’s bigger and bolder than the up-do before. Here, presumably, she’s caked in sweat and gatorade. No? Who cares? Her hair is always fabulous and edgy, just like her!

8. Bjork

I love Bjork. I love everything about her. Especially when she wears a getup like this, with gigantic, multi-colored puff balls as hair. Seriously, Bjork will put just about anything on her head, and I salute her for the effort. She’s a MOM, people, and she’s still pulling out crazy hairdos and foil dresses. I love it.

9. Dita Von Teese

There were a lot of actresses I could have put up that rock the pin-up hair look. The queen of those posers is Dita Von Teese, who is all woman and all about owning her vintage look…which includes her ever-fabulous hair. We love everything about Dita, but she’s always sporting a vintage haircut or hairdo that’s way above the half-assed influence of other celebrities. Style trailblazer!

10. Carey Mulligan

Here’s another actress who realizes how cute she is and is determined to edge it up! She could look like just another schoolgirl but Carey went platinum and short, and wears her hair with pride. We’d love to see other young stars take the leap from snoozeville to awesome, wouldn’t we? Have some courage, like Carey!
