From regular cuts, to dying roots, washing, drying, straightening and everything else in between, maintaining your hair could be a full-time job all on its own. And sometimes, just sometimes, when I’m sitting in front of the mirror at the hairdressers, I imagine how much easier my life would be if I could shave it all off.
If you’ve ever had the same thought while your head is propped back at an awkward angle in the hairdresser’s basin, I have some good news for you. Shaved heads are making a big comeback in 2018 and if you’re looking for a fresh start to the New Year, it’s the ultimate hairstyle to get you there.
The best part is if you’re bold enough to go for this beautiful style, you can take it one step further and do it for someone else. There’s no better cause than the World’s Greatest Shave, which raises vital funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Signing up for this important initiative will raise money to help Aussie families beat blood cancer. The World’s Greatest Shave will celebrate its 20th anniversary this March – so you have plenty of time to get your fundraising posse together for your big shave (or colour – that’s an option too). There’s even an app where you can keep track of your goals, remind your friends to sponsor you, and set up a countdown.
In the mean time, we’ve compiled some celebrity style inspiration to help you make your decision:
For those who came of age in the '90s, Demi Moore is probably one of the earliest celebs you saw rocking a shaved head when she starred as the ultimate badass in G.I Jane. And boy, could she pull it off. Not only did she look powerful and fierce, but her style became a major trend. Even Tallulah Willis said the inspiration to shave her head in 2015 came from her mum's iconic character.
