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?

Phew. She has reassured all of us that she is still as BADA$$ as ever. Man I can’t believe how EDGY this girl is. WOW! Someone give her a fashion line at Kohls to rub off some of that awesome staying-out-an-hour-after-curfew attitude on the 13 year-old in all of us!!

Big deal, she’s still copying trends that were popular way before she started doing them. That seems to be her M.O… Pathetic!

Ugh, nope, not loving it…but I am a 31 year old mommy of twins and SO not hip. Does that make me even less cool that I just used the word hip, hmm, I wonder? She’s so pretty though, it doesn’t really matter what she does to her hair! Good news is she can flip it over and hide it if she so wants to, wonder what a ponytail would look like.

I think Avril is definitely one of the most beautiful celebrities out there! I think she pulls this look off. I don’t think she was doing it for shock value or anything. I’m pumped for her new album!

I would shave my head in a heartbeat if my career wouldn’t suffer the consequences!

She is not the only one using that her style, it’s been very popular lately. She actually doesn’t good at all. If you google a singer called Cassie, that girl really rocks that style. Avril is not attractive and it’s creepy that she still wants to look 15 years old when she is almost 30. Smelling issues here!

Is she on drugs??????? Like seriously who does that?
