20 Of The Most Shocking Celebrity Hairstyles



Celebrities are viewed under a microscope no matter what they do. Some celebrities appear to welcome this and even draw extra attention to themselves by adding wacky or unique aspects to their look. One of the best ways for a celebrity to do this is by having a wild hairstyle. Sometimes these hairstyles go over really well and become epic trends, and other times that celebrity becomes the butt of all of our jokes. Here are 20 celebrity hairstyles that, for better or for worse, were definitely conversation starters.

Never one to follow the crowd, Nicki Minaj is known for being a trendsetter in the fashion world. This wacky blonde ‘do didn’t become a trend, but it sure was shocking.

Former Chicago Bull and onetime boyfriend of Madonna, Dennis Rodman is known for his eccentric looks. Rodman has been a long time fan of not only crazy hair colours, but of wild patterns, too.
