P!NK Debuts a Half-Shaved Head and We Track the Evolution of the Trend

Get a closer glimpse at the trend and let us know if you would ever rock the look! 

Singer and model Cassie was the first to make the half-shaved style famous, showing off her now signature style in 2009 and noting that "Sometimes in life, you need a change."

 

Although this is one of the more recent images of Rihanna's half-shaved look, the Barbadian songstress has gone back and forth between this (and many, many other styles) for some time now.

 

Willow Smith, who shot to fame for literally whipping her hair back and forth, shaved half of it off back in 2011.

 

Cher Lloyd shaved half of her head in 2011, timed with the release of one of her new singles, "Swagger Jagger,"

 

Amanda Bynes, who is currently best known for her selfie skills and strange blonde wigs, has recently shown off a half-shaved look (yes, while at the gym).

 

Jada Pinkett Smith has also rocked this look before (we would say she inspires her daughter, but Willow seems to inspire herself). Either way, the eldest of the Smith girls just tried out this look at [...]

 

Jada Pinkett Smith has also rocked this look before (we would say she inspires her daughter, but Willow seems to inspire herself). Either way, the eldest of the Smith girls just tried out this look at the "Chime for Change" charity concert, and we're loving the subdued take.

 

And finally, P!NK's newly half-shaven head (and long blonde extensions with pastel highlights) proves that apparently this look isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

 

When it comes to “out-there” hairstyles, the half-shaved trend is definitely one of them. As many have proven, the style is fun and quirky, but tends to lead to the question of “How in the heck does someone grow that out?” From Cassie to Rihanna, we’ve lusted over the look but tended to tread on the side of caution where half-shaved heads are concerned. But, it looks like this trend isn’t going away any time soon, as P!NK displayed a freshly shaved head over the weekend. The singer got rid of her signature mohawk style in favor of the half-shaved look, tweeting that she has, “Officially decided that June is crazy hair month. If there’s something you have been wanting to do – go for it! No fear! Crazy hair is fun.”

With that, we decided to take a deeper look into the half-shaved trend (and the ladies that love it) since clearly it is for the “fun” among us. While RiRi obviously changes her hair practically on a whim, Jada Pinkett Smith seems a bit more grounded – but also rocks the trend well, with a more mature and subdued note. Do you think you could pull it off? And again begs the question, how in the world do you grow it out after you’re tired of it?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and if you’d ever be bold enough to try this look out yourself!
