English model Cara Delevingne certainly made a statement when she shaved her head. The English model revealed her motives to her 39.9 million instagram followers in the following post:

“Its exhausting to be told what beauty should look like. I am tired of society defining beauty for us. Strip away the clothes, Wipe Off the make up, cut off the hair. Remove all the material possessions. Who are we? How are we defining beauty? What do we see as beautiful?”

Actress and singer Cynthia Erivo ROCKS the blonde shaved head look.

“Some people like it; some people hate it. I don’t care either way. I did it because I really wanted people to see my face. The thing about me and having dark hair is I felt like I was hiding and the white hair feels like a light bulb,” she told ESSENCE. “You can’t miss me. I just stopped being afraid of my face. My hair was really long and I just want to spend less time doing it and have you see my face. Never want to hide behind hair. It’s fun and easy to dress.”
