The Half-Shaved-Head Is Back And Five Women Who Are Rocking TF Out of The Trend

We’re not mad at it. 

Do you remember when Cassie shaved her head in 2009, and it was a mix between “WYD, girl?” and “Slaaaaaaaayyyyy”? Then everyone from Rihanna, Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Mel B, and Rosario Dawson went on to wear the look. Well, it’s back just in time for some summer-scalp-exposure and will probably always be here to say in a small way across the beauty realm: the half-shaved head. The shaved look has taken a few forms since its conception, and each one has been as badass as the next. Here are some of the influencers who are making us keep clippers in our handbags in case we should be struck with the courage to take to our locs over lunch or while having a strong round of cocktails with a friend:

So, we know Taren Guy to be the spiritual guru that we’ve always needed over IG. But when she took to the ‘gram to show off her new look, we couldn’t have been more googly-eyed. The fifth comment on the photo said, “You abt to make me shave the side of my head! <3.”. Perfectly said.

Kimberly Drew is the New York City girl that we all wish we were, so when she showed off her new haircut that we secretly wish that we had, there was nothing in the world that could’ve made more sense.

The Taiwanese-American beauty writer, Arabelle Sicardi, whose Instagram story is all of us, a little bit depressed and a little bit obsessed with our makeup look, added turquoise highlights to the look.
