Taylor Swift Latest in Jennifer Lawrence, Miley, Beyoncé Short Hair Club

Taylor Swift

Taylor SwiftSince when is a hair cut news? A haircut is news when the head shown is a celebrity teens and tweens emulate. Taylor Swift, who is viewed as a role model by many young girls, is the latest female icon to debut a short hair-do, following women who are influential in the eyes of adolescents, like Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé Knowles and Jennifer Hudson.

Swift’s long ash-blonde tresses, which she eagerly whipped around while performing, have been part of her signature style since she broke onto the country and pop scenes at 16. She has changed her look somewhat since then, adding bangs and straightening the curls. The biggest transformation was Tuesday, however, when the now 24-year-old revealed a new bob (shoulder-length style) with side-swept bangs to celebrate the end of her worldwide, whirlwind Red tour.

The media attention drawn by celebrity hair cuts recently rivals the attention paid to the Beatles’ hair or Shirley Temple’s curls. Every week, a photo is posted of someone famous, such as Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley and Beyoncé, flaunting the latest new pixie cut or short hair as if it is an initiation in a club. The attention they receive is generally positive. The last starlet to receive a lot of negative scrutiny for a haircut was Keri Russell, who chopped off long ringlets for short curls before the second season of Felicity; Russell’s was probably the only hairstyle blamed for a drop in a television show’s ratings.

There are usually three reasons cited for the radical transformation: to make a transformative statement about a change in their life, because of damage to their hair, or for a specific on-screen role. Swift’s transformative choice was to mark the end of a long tour.  Emma Watson famously used a pixie cut in 2010 to make the visual statement that she graduated from looking like Hermione Granger. Cyrus used her edgy bleached pixie cut with shaved sides to make it clear Hannah Montana is history and a new adult Miley is taking her career in another direction. Kellie Pickler’s shaved head was a statement of support for a friend undergoing chemotherapy.

Hair damage leading to new coifs can result from dyes, extensions and accidents. Jennifer Lawrence said one reason she went to a pixie was because her hair was fried from being dyed too much. Jennifer Aniston said she had six inches trimmed from her locks last fall in “spur-of-the-moment” decision, but also acknowledged that cutting so much would help her hair get healthy and repair damage hair coloring. Beyoncé’s dramatic change was reportedly spurred on when her thick blonde locks got caught in a fan while performing.

Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway had their hair cut on-screen as part of filming roles in V is for Vendetta and Les Misérables. Charlize Theron shaved her head to film Mad Max: Fury Road.  Ginnifer Goodwin is taking a different tack, by putting a wig clause written into her contracts so she will not have to grow out a character hair cut again.

Sometimes a haircut can become an onset continuity problem. Keira Knightley sported a tough-girl pixie cut to begin production for Domino, about a model turned bounty hunter, but was still completing Pride & Prejudice. This required her wearing a wig for the last shots of her as Elizabeth Bennett. Lawrence will wear a wig to finish out her run as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies.

One key thing about the new dos (pixie and bob) in vogue is that they look good on all ages. Kristin Chenoweth and Pamela Anderson are considerably older than Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé are among the latest converts in the short hair club.

  1. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely wonderful. I actually like what you have acquired here, really like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to read much more from you. This is really a terrific site.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!
