Beyonce shocked her fans this week by chopping off her hair. But she is just one of many stars who have cut their hair off, and given themselves a drastic and dramatic new look. Now, in the regular world, this wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but for a celebrity to cut all their hair off, well it’s a big statement. Their careers are intertwined with their image, look, and appearance, so to go from long hair to super short has far more impact that if you or I cut our hair.
So which other stars cut their locks off? Check out this collection of celebrities who went from long to short hair right here:
