23 Most Badass Shaved Hairstyles for Women

If you want a badass hairstyle that will make you stand out from the crowd, you are at the right place. Shaved hairstyles used to be associated with punks, but things have changed. More and more trendy women opt for shaved styles because they look edgy and feminine at the same time.

Are you brave enough to shave a part of your hair or even your whole head? Here are 23 shaved hairstyles to inspire your next transformation – from a good girl to bad.

1. Half Shaved Head + Long Hair

Haircuts with just one shaved side are so hot and sexy, right? Long hair softens the shaved area, making it look quite feminine and trendy. The best part about this hairstyle? It’s not a must to expose the bald patch all the time, you can easily hide it with the other section of your hair.

2. Short Blonde Bob + Shaved Side

This shaved-side asymmetrical bob proves that shaved hairstyles are actually super-wearable on any hair length and color. If you want to add a little funk to your girly girl hairstyle, shaving one side of your head just may do the trick. We know the style is pretty daring but it’s only hair, it’ll grow out…

    I am 13 years old and I know I get judged for my crazy hair styles, I have had undercuts, I layered my hair heaps then I got it cropped shorter then my chin. Eventually when it grew out a bit I shaved one side and got patterns done…. You know what, I LOVE IT!

    I’ve had all the super short cuts…including the entire shaved head.

    LOVED that! However…I did it, years ago, when it wasn’t trendy or the “in” thing, so I was constantly asked if I had cancer.

    My head is currently 1/8″ on the sides and I wear a “fin,” on top.

    I love it!

    Oh and for anyone who thinks age matters, I’m 48!

  21. Jasmine jamoh says:

    Ahhh…I love all the hairstyles

  22. Anonymous says:

    I so wish I could pull off long hair but I have a sort of dark strawberry blonde hair color so I’m not sure if it would look good and I’m scared to try it because once you do it you can’t really go back for a while

  23. Nora says:

    I think #22 might suit me but I’m not sure because my hair is strawberry blonde and I don’t think mom would let me dye or bleach it (I’m 13 so I can’t choose she needs to approve, and once you do it you can’t really go back, plus I’m not sure it would go great with my hair color)

  24. Racheal says:

    I have very thick curly frizzy hair. I hate it. I am a thick woman with a round face. I love #17. I was thinking maybe shaving of a lot of my hair would help my hair after it being colored so much? Think it would look okay?

  25. Anonymous says:

    I lyk the 8th hair is not curled how do i make it to be curled

  26. claudius says:

    I don’t think any haircut will make you a badass. Instead it will give valuable information to the opposite sex there is something really wrong with you and they should stay away

    At least I would when I see a punk wannabe women with a type of skrillex haircut which will istantly ring the “freak” alarm. Thanks , but I don’t need someone with personality issues and that needs a haircut to illustrate his/hers personality

    Be yourself , be natural and don’t fall for this “hey look at me” non-sense. It’s for low quality people that have nothing else to show.

    love #10

  28. Yvonne says:

    Would like to come in and get a short dew, Iam a Senior and loosing hair need your help, need address and phone number please.

  29. Ano says:

    I have had brain surgery so i got this hair style for free

  30. Sageypoo says:

    Wow….Claudius, tell us how you REALLY feel. Lol. You def sound like you are in much need of growing up. Why does this hairstyle anger you so much?? It’s pretty comical to be honest.

  31. Amberan says:

    Agreed Sageypoo. For some people cutting their hair is a way of expressing themselves in a way they can, instead of something like drawing, writing, music, etc. Same with dying hair. You shouldn’t judge people for their hairstyle or look, that’s their own choice and it’s most likely something that THEY love, or something that makes THEM feel happy and powerful, not something to please others.

  32. Anonymous says:

    I love #10! Altho, my hair is naturally curly/a little frizzy, so it would definitely look different than it does in the picture, but I like that idea. I’m pretty sure that’s what I’ll do.

  33. Brandy says:

    I have the #19 cut, but with dark hair and natural greying. I can’t tell you how much I love it! My hair is thick and naturally curly, so I have a lot of styling options. Fortunately, I’m a hairdresser and do it myself. My hair grows super fast so I shave it every couple weeks.
