Remember when Keri Russell chopped off her famously tamed fro in Felicity? Too far back? Okay, how about when Robert Pattinson cut off his Edward hair in between Twilight movies? It’s obvious that using your hair to make a statement is nothing new, but this year 10 celebrities accepted the challenge and made hair care decisions that truly shocked us all. 2012: The year of the the hair.
In order from least to most shocking, here’s this year’s Top 10 hair care decisions.
10. Shaun White
Shaun White is known for his ginger locks. And maybe for being an awesome snowboarder/skateboarder. Maybe. But this week Shaun decided to risk half of his celebrity status and chop off his hair… for charity! The remains of Shaun’s Shirley Temple curls will be donated to Locks of Love.
9. Demi Lovato

This year Demi Lovato altered her hair more times than her X-Factor co star Britney Spears said “definitely, yes.” While experimenting with ombre, blonde, bangs and colored tips make her worthy of this list, it was her most recent decision to go back to brunette that really takes the cake. Why, you ask? Because of what it did to her eyebrows. Enough said.
8. Kellie Pickler
Another rare act of kindness emerged from the black hole that is Hollywood: Kellie shaved her head to support a friend who has cancer. Awesome!
7. Charlize Theron
Don’t worry Charlize Theron didn’t go crazy, she’s just getting into character! Charlize Theron takes her acting very seriously. As she should, since she’s a damn good actress. Her ability to pull of literally any look is beyond frustrating.
6. Liam Payne from One Direction
Doesn’t he know that in order to be a successful boy-bander you have to maintain long, luscious locks? I think Harry Styles needs to have a chat with him before he does anything that reckless again.
Way ahead of the trend curve, as usual, Ke$ha decided hair just wasn’t cool enough anymore. Instead prefers studs on the side of her head. Now when she’s in a bar fight she can use it as a form of self defense.
4. Taylor Swift

Utterly depressed following the worldwide discovery that her relationship with Harry Styles is fake, Taylor Swift made a drastic decision: she cut and dyed her hair pink. Not really. It was just done for a music video.
3. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway wanted to finally be taken as seriously as Charlize Theron and chopped off all her hair for her role as Fantine in Les Miserable. This haircut might win her an award, just not one for most shocking celeb hair decision.
2. Kate Middleton
In news bigger than the conception of the royal baby, Kate Middleton cut her hair. Her Farrah Fawcett look is super drastic and gives her a mature look. With her new bangs she is now fully prepared for motherhood.
1. Miley Cyrus
And the most devastatingly shocking of all: Miley Cyrus. Her once beautiful brown hair seemed to get shorter and shorter with every passing month until she finally decided that if she couldn’t be bald, she might as well try. At first she had a P!nk sorta thing going on, but now…
