Hollywood's Top 18 Most Drastic Celebrity Haircuts

Although Britney Spears takes the award for most shocking celebrity meltdown haircut ever, we don't want to overlook the long list of Hollywood stars who aren't afraid to get creative with their coif. Take a look at some before-and-after photos of some of the most outrageous, drastic, and bizarre celebrity snips, clips, shaves, and cuts. Who knows? Maybe you'll be inspired to try out a new 'do. Just don't blame us if you hate it.

Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood's hair met the True Death when she traded her long blonde locks (April 2011, left) for a short, pixie-style pompadour (June 2011, right). We hope the 'do is for a movie role and not a new career as a Justin Bieber impersonator. Oh, Queen Sophie Ann, how the mighty have fallen.

Dianna Agron
We were slightly horrified when Dianna Agron (before, January 2011 at left) went full-on soccer mom in Season 2 of Glee, and things only got worse when she chopped off her shoulder-length hair earlier this summer (after, August 2011 at right). However, anything is better than Season 3's Pepto Bismol punk rock dye job. What the heck is going on with you, Quinn Fabray?!

Rooney Mara
To play tough girl Lisbeth Salander in the American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara butchered her hair, shaved her eyebrows, and pierced her nipple, nose, and eyebrow. “I was fazed by the transformation," she dished to Fox411. "The eyebrows changed the way I looked the most, but I would say it freaked me out for maybe two minutes then I was fine."

Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway also lopped off her hair for a role: The haircut is a plot point in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Les Misérables. That scene was shot this past spring, and her hair has since grown out a bit (and quite fashionably), as you can see in this photo from July. But compare that style to her long, lustrous tresses from October 2011.

Miley Cyrus
Apparently, there's no such thing as "too short" for Miley. She took to Twitter on August 12 to show off her newest cut, a bleach-blonde punky 'do. Put down the shears, Miley, or else you'll be rocking a chrome dome!

So let's talk hair, ONTD. Any salon horror stories to share? Which celeb hair are you envious of? Let's get some hair porn on here.

tell me more, tell me more.

seriously though do you have a photo of your hair? I've had a v v short pixie and am growing it out and learning a lot about what styles work for what hair types.
_effinsweet_ 29th-Jun-2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
i want a pixie cut too. halle berry's is awesome
ive had short hair most of my adult life, but never THAT short, not brave enough yet :(
wizard_alien 29th-Jun-2013 03:57 pm (UTC)
The shortest I can tolerate on myself is a jaw length bob. Works pretty well for thin hair if you've got a decent hairdresser.
hippie_chick 29th-Jun-2013 06:27 pm (UTC)
The only thing keeping me from doing it is the maintenance. They don't look good if you don't keep them up. And whomever cut it would have to work with this natural lift that isn't quite a cow lick but close that I have in my crown which I hate.
goodssky 29th-Jun-2013 10:45 pm (UTC)
pixie cut, Not for you.
astridreaming 1st-Jul-2013 10:26 am (UTC)
I have thin hair and got a pixie cut a few years back and it made my hair look thicker. I have since grown it out and then shaved it, my hair is currently 2 inches long. One good thing about shaving your head, you don't have to worry if it looks thin or greasy lol

I'm in the process of trying to grow my hair long. It's not even to my boobs yet but I usually cut it around this time. We'll see how long I can make it...
hermionedanger 29th-Jun-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
Get it trimmed to help it grow but keep going! My hair was past my boobs for a couple months and I felt like a mermaid.
a_wa 29th-Jun-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
Do what I did and get someone you trust to cut the split ends (if you have any that is). That way it can grow even longer. :)
plugmebaby 30th-Jun-2013 03:08 pm (UTC)
why does cutting split ends make it grow longer? it grows by the roots.. why would healthy tips make a difference
oltschi 29th-Jun-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
I'd love to cut my hair short but I have a potato face.
littlemix 29th-Jun-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
i love dianna's short hair sfm
urbasicbye 29th-Jun-2013 03:12 pm (UTC)
miley's original hair when she first cut it short was so fucking ugly. but it's still ugly now as well
twerkbitch 29th-Jun-2013 03:12 pm (UTC)
I don't get why websites always insist on using the absolute worst pictures of Miley's hair... That picture was literally taken 2 seconds after she cut it, before any styling.

It actually looks cute when it's styled right imo.

blacktinbox 29th-Jun-2013 03:33 pm (UTC)
that's not a very good example imo this looks better. bad but still better

lennoxs 29th-Jun-2013 03:35 pm (UTC)
yeah i liked this a lot more
twerkbitch 29th-Jun-2013 03:37 pm (UTC)
ohh I loved it like this too! It seems like every time I read a story about her now they use those god awful pictures from right after she cut it.
frosting 29th-Jun-2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
this is my hair right now but with longer sides but every time I see this I wanna quit growing it out and just give in to how good this looks.
_effinsweet_ 29th-Jun-2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
i like that one too
lilyy 29th-Jun-2013 03:47 pm (UTC)
not a fan of the platinum blonde on her but her hair looks good here
sweet_honesty 29th-Jun-2013 04:03 pm (UTC)
No, I still think it looks awful
agatharuncible 29th-Jun-2013 05:00 pm (UTC)
I like the way she looks in the post so much better than this.
royan_rawss 29th-Jun-2013 05:07 pm (UTC)
I love her hair here. Not so much with her face, but if I could pull this off I'd do it.
punkylana 29th-Jun-2013 06:05 pm (UTC)
she doesn't have the face to pull this off tbh
a_wa 29th-Jun-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)

because there's no good picture of her hair
hesaysheinlove 30th-Jun-2013 01:56 am (UTC)
Really? I was just telling my husband how much I loved her hair right after she cut it and how bad I think it looks now.
beatlesluv 30th-Jun-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
I love this cut on her ;)
logan_lerman 29th-Jun-2013 03:13 pm (UTC)

milastalens 29th-Jun-2013 06:07 pm (UTC)
the hairstyle on the left was so fucking annoying. and boys trying to have the same and failing at it were the worst lol
a_wa 29th-Jun-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
Hahaha. What the heck? His hair barely changed...
judgmental 30th-Jun-2013 12:26 am (UTC)
he has a rly good bone structure tho
acornthimble 29th-Jun-2013 03:13 pm (UTC)
i have an appointment at a salon next week and i'm thinking about getting bangs... but i'm kinda scared lol
blacktinbox 29th-Jun-2013 03:34 pm (UTC)
If you have straight hair then i suggest going for it. but if your hair is really curly, i'd say don't do. you'll regret it.
maggielizabeth 29th-Jun-2013 03:39 pm (UTC)
It's all about styling and maintence.
heartbreakingg 29th-Jun-2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
Agreed! I have curly hair and I look good with bangs so I've always been like "Oh man I'm gonna get bangs!" and then the next time I wash my hair and don't want to do anything to it I'm like DAMMIT. Especially in the summer. No more bangs for me, no matter how nice they look when I put in the effort.
maggielizabeth 29th-Jun-2013 03:38 pm (UTC)
Hair grows.
zlatanwhy 29th-Jun-2013 03:46 pm (UTC)
^^if you have straight hair and/or the time and patience to style them everyday do it. i got bangs in feb and they look great when i bother to do anything with them but 95% of the last 5 months they've been pinned back.
astrid_lane 30th-Jun-2013 12:34 am (UTC)
Do it!! i did it in February, when still was summer here, it was kind of hot but not that much. And i love them, my hair is between straight and curly so i have to style my bangs every time i go out, but it's worth it. And if you don't like them, you can always pin them back until they grow.
hesaysheinlove 30th-Jun-2013 01:59 am (UTC)
The first time I got bangs I loved them... the second time not so much. I have to pin my bangs back and look ridiculous every damn day.
mmbien 29th-Jun-2013 03:13 pm (UTC)
it's my dream to find a hairdresser who knows what to do with a lot of thick, curly hair, so i can ask for more than 'a trim and some layers'.

i remember getting my bum-length hair chopped off when i was about 9 and it was so long i couldn't sit in the chair. so i had to stand for absolutely ages while she cut it and i ended up vomming in the sink. the vomit was bright green because i had eaten some soft mints before going.

bangorilla 29th-Jun-2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
lmao GURL
but I'm having the same problem with my super thin hair that always ends up completely straight although I use curling iron
thin hair+my face shape don't go together :(
maggielizabeth 29th-Jun-2013 03:41 pm (UTC)
If you live in/near San Francisco I HIGHLYrecommend my brother. He is so fucking talented. 
mmbien 29th-Jun-2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
sadly no. i'm more europe based.
frosting 29th-Jun-2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
my gf has thick, curly hair and has a gorgeous cut. she tells them she doesn't want triangle head but layers make it look like a brick house, and she is lucky enough to get something soft and in between.
maxiekatt2 29th-Jun-2013 03:45 pm (UTC)
I finally found a salon I like on Naturallycurly.com - my stylist knows what she's doing with curly hair and if she ever leaves, I will cry lol.
keepacoolinbaby 29th-Jun-2013 03:51 pm (UTC)
skyler_white_yo 29th-Jun-2013 04:19 pm (UTC)
Call around or stop into different places and talk to the stylists. A good stylist will listen to you and give recommendations based on your hair type and facial features.
blackkdiamond 29th-Jun-2013 04:30 pm (UTC)
Ugh mte. I've given up going to hairdressers because all they know what to do with my curls is straighten it and give me a trim.
srslyy 29th-Jun-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
i had found a great stylist but then she moved and ive been lost ever since. no one else can do anything even remotely nice to how she did it now. everyone does my layers just so long, and ALSO makes them way too short. im trying to grow my hair back out, so ive just started cutting it myself
srslyy i want my hair cut like this29th-Jun-2013 08:35 pm (UTC)
but I wouldn't even know how to word it, and I'm afraid to just find some salon and show them the picture and just ~let them try~

*sorry so big!

i love the after shots better tbh
tbe 29th-Jun-2013 03:49 pm (UTC)
I do too. I get so sick of the Long Hair = Good/Short Hair = Bad attitude when it comes to women. It's so archaic.
_effinsweet_ 29th-Jun-2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
so many rules about being a "true" woman, i can't even keep up.
kajsa87 29th-Jun-2013 04:02 pm (UTC)
Ikr? It's so annoying. Of course short hair is not for everyone but there are lots of famous women who look better/more interesting with short(er) hair.
curdlesnoot 29th-Jun-2013 04:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, not here for the short hair hate. I love short hair and I hate it when some girls talk about their long hair and exclude short haired girls from the conversation like, 'oh, you wouldn't understand, my wavy locks are just soooo a part of me. You dont understands how hard long hair is, it's such a burden-oh no, I'd never cut it above my shoulders.' Like if you don't think you suit short hair that's fine but don't rag on women like they're suddenly unfeminine because they rock the pixie. It takes some serious bone structure to pull that shit off
dreadelectric 29th-Jun-2013 03:15 pm (UTC)
I think they all look fine except for Miley. I feel like she's a caterpillar or something.
