Kelly Osbourne Sports Braided Hairstyle with Safety Pins! Plus, More Buzzy Beauty Looks

Flower crowns. Bun pins. Turbans. Headscarves. Jewel headbands. Hair accessories are everywhere this summer. But leave it to Kelly Osbourne to introduce us to a type of hair adornment we hadn’t even considered: The fashion risk-taker swapped her bobby pins for safety pins.

Osbourne’s stylist Ryan Randall transformed her lavender shaved mohawk into a messy multi-braided style, connecting the plaits with silver safety pins of various sizes at the Cadillac and Refinery29 launch party in L.A.

“Love it or hate it, @kellyosbourne is always willing to take a risk, and owns it. Love this #braided #punk look we did tonight for the @refinery29 event. You are the ultimate collaborator, and a daily inspiration Kelly!,” Randall captioned the below photo on Instagram.

While Osbourne had Randall’s help creating her new do, it was definitely her brainchild.

“It was a mix between something I found from a book from Blitz Kids and something from Teddy Girls, which is a form of south Rockabilly in the 1950s in England,” Osbourne explained to People at Montblanc’s The 24 Hour Plays benefiting Urban Arts Partnership. “I think thatโ€™s the best way that I can describe my sense of style.”

But don’t expect her to rock it through summer. “No!” she said, laughing at the idea. “The only thing I’ll keep is the color purple.”

From ’90s punk to ’60s style, Kaley Cuoco channeled Twiggy wearing her pixie swept heavily to one side and adding a dramatic cat eye to the look. Cuoco has said that her new cut helps her bring “out my inner Peter Pan,” and she’s been experimenting with it a lot.

And lastly, Katy Perry (another big risk-taker) pulled two beauty bold beauty moves — bleached eyebrows and crazy slicked back, center parted hair, featuring green braided pigtail buns and flyaways gelled on her forehead. Sure, the look was for a performance, but Perry always finds ways to one-up herself.

All Katy Perry is doing is recreating a look that Black girls from the hood used to rock from the 80’s early 90’s. Of course everyone is gonna give her credit for it because she is white just like the whole world thinks Miley Cyrus Created Twerking

Good for these girls – fun and not scared to take fashion risks! If I were younger, I’d be doing these styles.
