Are stars tired of their Skrillex-inspired haircuts? Avril Lavigne is the third celebrity in a week, following Rihanna and Ke$ha, to switch up her partially shaved style. The newly engaged singer debuted a bedazzled version of her ‘do — complete with pink- and green- dyed strands and studs, naturally (left) — on Sept. 10 while in N.Y.C. to show her spring 2013 Abbey Dawn collection.

A few days earlier at the MTV Video Music Awards, both Rihanna and Ke$ha, who had experimented with this edgy look, emerged having kicked it to the curb. While Rihanna is back to a sexy, textured pixie, Ke$ha appears to have added extensions to her asymmetrical cut, making her hair surprisingly plain-Jane.

While these stars have updated their buzzed hair, celebs like Jada Pinkett Smith (center) are still embracing the drastic style. The actress slicked back her hair, showing off both sides of her shaved head during an appearance at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 9. Other stars of all ages and styles, from Chloë Sevigny to Cassie (right) also rock this shaved ‘do.

It’s unclear whether the look — which strikes a resemblance to Grammy-winning male musician Skrillex’s shaved hair — is here to stay, but we want to hear what you think about it. Tell us: Do you love or hate the half-shaved ‘do? Vote in our poll below!
