"To be old and wise, you must first have to be young and stupid" – changing a hairstyle is one aspect of a person’s life that this quote can be safely applied to.
Why? To start with the most obvious reason: hair is one of the easiest to modify and control. Before you go follow that bright light, experiment with some that are, well, less conventional. Eccentric hairstyles will not come out tacky when done right!
These hairstyles are for women who possess true grit (usually right after a disastrous break up or after losing a terrible bet). Let’s add a spunk score to each – 10 being the one with enormous amount of élan!

Sure, Natalie Portman got paid big (for the movie ‘V for Vendetta’) for getting buzzed, but still, you can’t brush away this gorgeous actress’ gutsiness and aplomb! Nothing amplifies hairstyle fortitude better than a buzz cut. The audacity lies on both the act and what the cut signifies (sported by soldiers and cancer warriors). Double dare?
