While everyone else is talking about Charlize shaving her head, we’re thinking, “When will she take off the hat(s) and show us the results?”
Anyone who follows entertainment or style knows that Charlize Theron cut off her hair in the last week. Peoplestylewatch.com reported that the long-haired blonde was photographed walking into a salon on June 6, and hasn’t been seen without a hat since.
On Sunday, Ms. Theron kept the news under wrap, wearing a beanie cap to and from a Pilates class. While the cold-weather topper seems odd for a hot day in L.A., you have to remember that celebrities and celeb wanna-bes wear UGG boots year-round.
On Monday, news of the barely-there haircut broke when Charlize wore a fedora that couldn’t hide her shaved nape. (As opposed to Mom’s hat the day before, a little knit cap seemed absolutely normal, not to mention adorable, on her son Jackson.)
While we’re not surprised that Charlize would make such a bold style move, it DOES seem dramatic when you consider her ultra-feminine look less than two weeks ago at the MTV Movie Awards. Char made a grand entrance in slightly-wavy straight hair and a red-hot dress.
If it were anyone else, you might think this is a publicity stunt to promote Prometheus or build “buzz” around Mad Max 4: Fury Road, which hasn’t even started filming! Jaded fans might argue that Charlize is wearing a buzzed-hair wig under those hats. It’s safe to say Ms. Theron is following in the footsteps of actresses Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Demi Moore, Cynthia Nixon, etc. who have shaved their heads for a role.
Only time will tell if this transformation will have a big payoff like the Oscar she won for Monster. Only a short time (hours, days, a week) will tell the details of the latest daring ’do in the Celebrity World!
