Avril Lavigne Hair Shaved
X17 Online

What’s the buzz? Avril Lavigne debuted a new — and, ahem, questionable — hairstyle on Saturday while in Paris.

She kept the color and length (for the most part) the same; it’s the partially shaved side that’s the big shocker.

While this look isn’t all that original — Rihanna and Lourdes Leon recently rocked the half-shaved do — it’s definitely a departure from her signature long strands.

Lavigne, who has a clothing label and a line of nail polish strips, recently said she’d like to launch a hair color collection. Perhaps we’ll see her sporting some crazy hair hues next. Tell us: What do you think of her new look? Would you ever try it?

I just think it’s funny that she used to sing sappy country music when she first started out. Now she’s soooooo bad. Comical.

She’s a pretty girl with no singing talent. So she jumps on the bandwagon and shaves her head to get attention. Nothing surprising.

She’s beautiful no matter how she cuts her hair. But, she doesn’t have the sexiest ears and well, I don’t know, I’ll have to see more pics.

PS I wonder if she shaved a portion down below to match the effect?

Great voice, but she’s trying too hard.

I’d rather see her develop her skills as a singer/songwriter than try to shock people for fleeting amounts of attention.

I got a sidecut on the 3rd and I LOVE it! I get loads of “Is that chick insane?!” looks, but what the judgmental jerks don’t know is 1) I really like it so their opinion is bunk, 2) I did it in solidarity with a good friend who’s fighting cancer. She shaved off ALL her hair rather than waiting for chemo to make it fall out, buzzing a 2x4inch section of mine was nothing in comparison.

Cyndi Lauper started this trend in the 80’s. all the retro from 20-30 years before comes back into fashion. Avril just took a page out of the retro shiek book. old is new again. c’est la vie!

Avril Lavigne needs to do the world a really big favor and drop dead because she’s just trying to look like she’s so hardcore by shaving half of her head, and I think that it looks so pathetic because she is nothing but a manufactured product of the music industry who sings and writes poser Punk/Rock music.
