Hairpocalypse 2009

Where did all the hair go? I take a personal interest in this latest rash of head shavings and close croppings, because I did the same thing myself about a month ago. Cut it all off and sent it to Locks of Love – one pound six ounces of hair!

Let’s go chronologically. First out of the gate was Cassandra Ventura, who shaved half of her head 80s style. By way of explanation she twittered, “Yeah, I did it. They ask why?? LOL B/C I WOKE UP AND FELT LIKE IT!!!”

Next, MTV host La La Vasquez picked up the torch, shaving half her head and donating the snipped hair to Locks of Love. A woman after my own heart! Vasquez twittered, “Cassie started the “MOVEMENT” i did the “LA LA REMIX”..lol..who will be next..? feels good to let go!! ”

On July 21st, Rihanna landed in London with a spiky/shaved 80s haircut. This doesn’t seem as drastic a departure for her – more of a natural transition from her previous bob. In fact, of all the wacky haircuts this summer, I think Rihanna’s suits her the best.

Today, Beyonce Knowles’ younger sister Solange upped the ante with her new do. It’s as if Solange is saying, “I’ll see your 80s pop star haircuts, and raise you a Will Smith Fresh Prince fade!”

While researching this article, I suddenly learned that Michelle Obama has a new hairstyle, as well. I’m not sure if it technically belongs among the ranks of Rihanna’s wacky Simon Le Bon groove, since Michelle’s hair is just plain classy. But I’m including it here for the sake of completeness.
