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?

I personally would never do that, but on her it looks okay. She can always cover it up if she wants to since the part is so far to the side.

Personally I think it looks like arse. I would never do that to my head. She is 27 years old and doing something a juvenile would do. However, it is her head, her hair, her choice. I definately agree with Pat on this one. Anything to get noticed. Attention seeking behaviour that is so unbecoming. Again, just my opinion.
