A Shaved Head Is Spring's Hottest Trend

Celebs and it-girls alike are taking it all off — at least when it comes to what's on their heads.
Kristen Stewart caused a stir last month when she ditched her longer locks for a platinum blonde shaven look, which she called "practical" in an interview with The Today Show. (She has a point. The style requires a tremendous amount of guts, but not a ton of styling time.) Over the weekend, Zoe Kravitz shared a photo to Instagram of her blonde box braids in a pile on the floor (RIP!), only to reveal that she too had embraced a look similar to Stewart's.
And it looks like the trend won't be slowing down anytime soon, now that it's reached the queen of drastic hair transformations. The ever-experimental Katy Perry made our Monday by sharing her latest cut – you guessed it – a super-short shaved platinum blonde coif. Folks, where there's smoke, there's fire, and the celeb set is blazing into spring, committed to making a fresh start with super-short, bold cuts. The look is at once stylish and simple, understated and bold, and impossibly cool. It's also a smart spring answer to the floor-grazing extensions we saw all winter long.
And the cover of this month's i-D is taking the trend to the next level. The magazine's latest pictures models Adwoa Aboah, Elliott Brown, and Slick Woods all rocking shaved heads, except instead of blonde, this trio is serving radioactive realness with bright neon dye jobs and matching brows.
The look currently has us resisting the urge to grab the nearest electric razor and go to town! Would you start spring with a shaved head?
