Do You Like Rosario Dawson's Half-Shaved Head Look?

06/24/2013 at 04:49 PM ET

Rosario Dawson shaved head Raymond Hall/Wireimage

Just last week, we took a look at stars who want to mimic the half-shaved head look popularized by Rihanna and Pink, but who were too chicken to take the plunge.

But no one is calling Rosario Dawson chicken. The actress was spotted on the set of her film Finally Famous, rocking her new shorn do.

We’re so used to seeing the star with her signature long, rich brown waves that we still have to do a double-take to recognize her.

But she has wasted no time since shaving it in trying all sorts of new looks, wearing it down and straight one day and in voluminous ringlets the next, all while sporting a wide smile — no hair regrets here.

Tell us: Do you like this look on Dawson?

I think it’s awesome. She looks gorgeous and cool.

Ryry on

Hmmm . . . no. Not achieving “edgy”. Looks like she had a medical procedure.

malnew on

I think the shaved part is really pretty and she should cut all her hair short.

I don’t understand why people think this is innovative. This is so late 80’s, early 90’s. So many people had partailly shaved heads back then, either one side or lots of girls had the bottom shaved so it showed when you would put it up. This has all been done before and looks just as ridiculous now as it did back then.

Jessica on

I don’t think this is a good look on anyone…

Deanna on

She is so pretty, she looks good with her hair in any style. However, this is not her best look.

Seagyn on

Again with this hairstyle. It’s like the rad-fashion of wearing shoulder-pads back in the 80’s. Everyone had it and no-one looked good with it.

Robyn on

I have had this haircut and got plenty of compliments on it. It’s fun and easy :)

SatieMama on

Dumbest hairstyle trend ever. I can’t wait to watch all these idiots try to grow it out when they get sick of it. This all likely started when someone decided to shave their head, then gave up halfway through and decided to pass it off as-is.

Cluv513 on

This look has been done so much over the last few yeas it time to move on!!!

Guest with 3 Names on

I don’t get the attraction for this look. To each her own. I like balance.

KimW on

I think it looks like the ‘art piece’ of “Gladys” that Phoebe gave to Monica and Rachel on Friends!

Just My Opinion on

Not a fan of the hairstyle, but it looks nice on her.

Danielle on

Rosario why did you do that….? that’s a crime why….?

kim on

no, she looks like a man.

Sinead on

That is usually a post-neurosurgical look [the only thing missing is a nice horseshoe shaped scar which gets quite itchy when the hair rows back over the incision. Ms. Dawson is missing the staples and/or stitches that usually accompany such a “look”. Luckily my hair has been long all of my life & I keep it that way so I can pull my hair over my scar when I get my shunt revised [I have had 40 shunt revisions since 1972]. Fortunately brain surgery does not look to be in Rosario Dawson’s future any time soon…

arieb on

It looks great on her!

kara on

Trying to hard. She would look better if she just shaved it all off.

tutu on

she looks like an idiot.

Mvelo on

There are certain hairstyles that should be left to teens or people in their early twenties- this hairstyle is 1 of those. Rosario has beautiful features though, hence she looks alright

susan on

Why do women thinks this is feminine. It looks ridiculous. Are they in that much need of attention? Guess so.

Brady McQuire on

It’s called identity crisis, wether she realizes it or not . . .

ally on

No!!! She’s so beautiful, I can on think “WHY”?

marie on

It looks good but it’s not original..this hip hairstyle is super trendy now…NO BIG DEAL.

angie on

At least she isn’t sporting a mullet!

Manders on

I can’t stand this look… She’s a pretty girl but this is not an attractive hairstyle

Nora on

I can dig it. To each their own! :)

ana on

She looks even uglier than she already is.

tshape on

pretty, um homely

Guest on

She looks beautiful. Her face is so pretty that she can pull off any style haircut.

lorenasuarez2 on

Absolutely horrendous, not sexy, not alluring and definitely outdated!





ImALadyToo on

That looks absolutely ridiculous.

.... on

She’s a rug muncher. The look is acceptable there.

Lilyflower on

Am I correct in saying that this is for the movie she’s filming? Because I don’t see the big deal if that’s the case.

Bella on

It unfortunately isn’t a flattering look on her. Kind of makes her look older.

Stacey on


kaya on

This isn’t original the first celebrity I seen with this was Jody Whatley on American bandstand ages ago when I was in high school.and she had her head shaved clean on each side

ST on

That “hairstyle” is ridiculous.

required on

Looks ridiculous.

Liz on

When will this trend just go away????

Wicked14817 on

I don’t get this haircut and with the exception of PINK, no one else has been able to rock it…my opinion!

big b on

I think originality is very positive. You go girl!

Aud on

Didn’t Rihanna start this? Or was there someone before her?

Tonya on

Isn’t she like 50

suzydiamond on


Char on

NO NO NO NO NO! Either all of it or not at all. Cannot stand this hair cut on anyone. Its like they just can’t quite decide to go short or long! I love this woman and I think she is beautiful but this haircut has got to go. Litterally!. but then again who am I

angie on

I think it should be long..or short..pick one.

db on

This is got to be one of the ugliest trends ever….the mullet is better than this….If someone sat in my chair and said this is what I want….I would tell them to make up their mind…its either there or not….I don’t do schizophrenic haircuts!

Thele on

um let’s get it right…not a style popularized by Riri or Pink, but Cassie. Thank you.
