Doctor Who fans can nerd out all they want about Karen Gillan brilliantly playing Amy Pond. But her most recent and notable look would be her playing Nebula in the much applauded Guardians Of The Galaxy. Quite a convincing and beautiful blue little alien, we’d say!

Natalie Portman

Another cult movie, V For Vendetta had Natalie Portman going bald on screen for her role as Evey. It won’t come as a surprise that she looked as amazing without it as she did with it.

Persis Khambatta

Persis Khambatta embodied many great things. She shaved her head to play the gorgeous Lieutenant Ilia in the original Star Trek. She was also the first Indian to present an award at the 1980’s Oscars.

Known for her recent role as Teresa Lisbon in The Mentalist, Robin Tunney did her bit in somewhat of a cult classic Empire Records as a suicidal rebel who shocks everyone by shaving her head.

Cate Blanchett

The Australian hottie holds the secret to great off screen style, it is astounding, really. On screen, Cate Blanchett is even better. An encouraging example of how she gave up her hair for her craft.

Demi Moore

One of Demi Moore’s most notable movies from the 90s Ghost had the audience falling in love with her and her character. She played dangerously with her career by signing up for G.I Jane which required her to go cue ball (read: bald). In the end, it was all worth it, because she truly defined fabulous.
