Pose star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez shaved off her hair in February and touched on the emotional experience in an Instagram post.

Rodriguez wrote on Instagram that she felt “free” after shaving her head earlier this year.
The actress credits the win as the inspiration for her new look. In her caption, she wrote: “I was holding a lot in my hair, and this was just a moment to let it all go. I wrapped a beautiful show with an amazing cast. I won an award that I never thought I would ever receive.”
Musician Doja Cat is not one to shy away from daring looks. In August, she went one step further and shared an Instagram selfie of her new, cleanly shaven look. Not only did the musician shave her head, she also took a razor to her eyebrows.
Doja Cat responded to backlash about the look on Twitter, tweeting: “I won a Grammy and travelled the f*****g globe I’ve had a No. 1 and I went platinum,” she wrote. “I make hit after hit after hit and you all want me to look f***able for you … Go f*** yourselves.”
Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams also sported a summer cut this year. Williams has had a variety of different hairstyles over the years, including bleach blonde locks and baby pink bobs.
Williams shared an Instagram holiday post on July 30 with her new buzz cut, admitting to her followers that now she washes her head with a face cleanser. In the second photo, Williams donned a multicoloured knitted hat over her new cut.
Ireland Baldwin is the latest celeb to join the buzz cut club this year after she dyed and shaved her head. Baldwin’s new do was first displayed on Instagram.
Baldwin, daughter of actor Alec Baldwin and actress Kim Basinger, debuted a new look on Instagram at the end of August. The model captioned her post “don’t tell me I won’t do something because I will”.
She opened up more about the decision on her Instagram story, stating: “I’ve always wanted to do this, but I was always scared. Now that I don’t care about what other people think, I feel more beautiful than ever.”
Baldwin’s hairstylist Hannah Bonetti called the hair moment “radical” and thanked Baldwin for the opportunity.
Most recently, Willow Smith opened up to Glamour about her decision to shave her head at the age of 12. Smith opened up about her relationship to her hair as the cover star of Glamour’s September 2022 issue.
The musician and daughter of Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith made waves for her edgy style and versatile looks.
The cover star opened up about shaving her head to Glamour for their September issue, boldly declaring to the outlet: “Shaving my head is the most radical thing I’ve done.”
In August 2017, Smith told entertainment site Refinery29 that she first shaved her head at the age of 12 because of the anxiety she experienced during her 2012 “Whip My Hair” tour.
Ever since, Smith has alternated between long and short hair, donning different styles whenever she feels like it.
In reference to her hair, Smith told Glamour: “However I’m feeling, I like to do that. I don’t really like to think about it too much.”
