It used to be that if you chopped your hair off, you could expect an Oscar. (Just ask Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron.) These days, it's another line on the contract — and more actresses are picking up the buzzer for roles than ever before.
But, it's not just for the job. A lot of celebs are making (or keeping) the style because they damn well feel like it, too. And it makes sense: buzz cuts are low-maintenance, flattering, and cool in more ways than one — especially during the summer.
Ahead, check out all the stars currently rocking buzz cuts and grown-out versions of them. And get ready: This is not a short list...

Making the Cut

Amandla Stenberg's cut was originally for their role in Where Hands Touch. Stenberg grew out their curls briefly after filming wrapped, but buzzed it again in April because, duh, it looks good.

Halsey has worn just about every hairstyle in the book (including long blue mermaid waves), but we're partial to the killer buzz cut she debuted in May. Rad, right?

Resident cool-girl Keke Palmer says that she chopped and dyed her hair for practical reasons. "I wanted to start over," she told Refinery29. "My texture has changed quite a bit over the years from all the things I've done to it. I really want to be able to let my hair rest and become its own thing. I also really wanted to be bald!"

The Grow-Out

If you're worried that chopping your hair will cut you off from styling possibilities, think again. Cara Delevingne has dressed up her head with metallic paint, head tattoos, and even faux bangs.

Zoe Kravitz proves that the grow-out doesn't need to be awkward. Her gamine pixie is perfectly tousled, and we're loving the rooty blonde color, too.
