Lourdes Leon Shaved Head
Splash News Online; Inset: Startraks

Leave it to Madonna‘s daughter to try a cool new look! Lourdes Leon stepped out on her way to school in New York Thursday, sporting a funky new half-shaved do. The stylish 15-year-old — who’s had long dark hair forever — had her hair up in a bun, bringing extra attention to the edgy style.

Leon hasn’t made drastic changes to her hair before, though she’s toyed with the idea. “I want royal blue hair but not a streak, like my entire head,” the teen designer wrote on her blog in December of 2010.

But at the time, she wasn’t so sure she’d get away with the change. “I read this blog aloud to my mother,” she continued, “and she is sitting here staring at me with no expression on her face, as if she doesn’t approve of it!” Wonder if Madonna gave this cut the OK? Tell us: What do you think of Leon’s look?

I doubt Lourdes is claiming she invented it. It’s just a “new” style for her. Her cut has a zig zag edge instead of a straight one. And no, Willow, Cassie, Rihanna et al weren’t the first to do it. A lot of people had these styles in the ’80s. Madonna herself had both sides shaved when she was in her late teens (19) in the late ’70s when she was in a rock band in the Lower East Side of NYC. As a kid though, Madonna was a straight-A student and earned a full scholarship to the University of Michigan. Lourdes is 15, not 12, if she wants to shave part of her head, then so be it. Madonna has to pick & choose her battles, like any parent. Overall, I think Madonna is doing a great job with her. Lourdes seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

New look? That’s the metal shave dudes sported in the 90’s. Take a look at the Motley Crew video of “Girl don’t go away mad…just go away”

I like some of Madonna’s songs, and although not a huge fan, I will admit she seems to keep a close rein on Lola in whatever she chooses to do..most of the time Madge is right there with her or in the wings…it could be much worse..why would someone comment..”the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” hey lady where are you apples and what are they doing? It’s hair and fashion she’s a teenager…big deal!!

I did this in High School and in my freshman year of college before I got a real job. This is what this age is for!!! So go ahead, have fun, and have pictures to giggle at yourself with later in life!

This is not new, just a resurgence of an old 80’s fad. See any bad 80’s movie and look for the villian’s girlfriend to find it.


New and degy? Puleeze, I’m about ready to graduate USC and this “do” was around when I was in middle school-I think it’s fine and mom should let her dye it blue, it’s only hair (-:
