Kelly Osbourne Shaves Her Head, Is Left With Mini-Mohawk

Updated

When we saw the latest photo of Kelly Osbourne on her Instagram, we were like, “Wow, love a good makeup-free selfie! Snaps!”

And then we were like, “Wait a minute.” And then we were like “Five alarm fire, stop the presses, a celebrity actually shaved their head.”

PEOPLE StyleWatch editors joke all the time about star head-shaving on a Friday afternoon, but we have to admire Kelly for actually delivering. Though we only have ourselves to blame for the late notice. After all, when we saw the Instagram below two days ago, we should have known something was up. The caption: “With @fraankie cutting off more hair! I wonder how long before I shave the hole thing off?”

Apparently, the answer was “Not long at all!” because she posted a close-up look at her buzzed locks a few minutes later, then showed up at the Race to Erase MS event that evening to debut it officially.

We didn’t think much of it at the time, though, because close cuts always require a lot of maintenance. It wasn’t until today, when she posted her barefaced selfie, that we realized she was debuting a whole new do.

Unlike her previous cut, a buzzed-at-the-side bob, this one is fully shaved on the sides almost up to the crown of her head. Her hair (bangs included) is swept back off her face into an understated pompadour — it’s soft in this photo, but we have a feeling it’s only a matter of time until we see it spiky again.

Surprised by her cut? We’re not. After all, she defined her previous partly-shaved bob as “alien chic meets mental patient that’s just had electroshock therapy,” and told PEOPLE, “Every day I’m looking at it and thinking it needs to be more, it needs to go further back and needs to be shorter.” Good to know she’s a woman of her word!
