We know Britney Spears is back - in a big way - and her hair looked great on the red carpet in 2012.

Who can forget, though, the shave heard round the world? Britney's moment was easily the most famous drastic hair change of our generation!

From her days as Kanye's lady in 2008 to Wiz's wifey and vodka spokeswoman, Amber Rose's shaved head is unchanging.

In December 2012, Charlize was spotted with a close crop and all black in LA.

This 1981 General Hospital photo shows Demi in all her tousled glory. The actress seems to opt for long, straight hair these days but we love this 80's hair (and makeup)!

Demi and then husband, Bruce Willis, attend the premiere of G.I. Jane in 1996. If you haven't seen the movie, go and rent it for the head-shaving scene alone!

Wow! A young Cynthia Nixon wears her naturally red tresses long and straight in a 1982 ABC TV Movie, My Body, My Child. And guess who that is on her left? Sex and the City co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, of course!

30 years later, Cynthia still looks great on the red carpet in May 2012 with one major difference: a shaved head! Nixon chopped off her locks for her role in the New York production of Wit.

Once Upon a Time...a lesser-known Ginnifer Goodwin sported longer locks in 2003.

While Ginny didn't go for an all-out shave, her bold cuts are a always a head turner on the red carpet, like here in 2011.

Singer Grace Jones lets her over-the-top makeup do all the talkin' and keeps her cut close at a 1978 disco convention banquet. Yes, a disco convention banquet.

Grace Jones' close crop is still going strong in 2012 -- that's more than 30 years of shaven splendor.

Jada Pinkett Smith looks as ageless as ever at the May 2012 premiere of Men in Black 3 with a sleek, straight cut.

Jada goes straight to funkytown with the side pony meets shaved head creation in March 2012.

A teeny, tiny Willow is oh-so cute with her short twisted curls in 2007.

Like mother, like daughter! Jada rocks a pink faux hawk and buzzed sides in April 2012.

We weren't exactly coveting Ke$ha's 2009 bed head but it did make a statement.

We might advise Ke$ha and other not to shave even the smallest patch of your head if you're not going to keep up with your blonde highlights, girl!

In January 2013, Solange rocks a full 'fro for the premiere of Girls.

Back in 2009, Solange took it all off -- but still looked absolutely stunning!

Kellie Pickler's blonde tresses look as cute and country as ever at the SiriusXM studios in July 2012.

And then it's gone! Ms. Pickler, seen here in November 2012, shaved her head in support of her friend, Summer Miller, who is battling breast cancer. Go Kellie!

Deception star Meagan Good looks gorgeous with long waves at the SiriusXM Studios in January 2013.

Natalie Portman looks gorgeous with a sleek, classic 'do with side swept bangs at the 2012 Academy Awards.

Natalie's role in V for Vendetta back in 2005 called for head shaving scene and she rocked it! Her shaved head was so popular, it even inspired a rap on SNL and a band (though they've changed their name to Brite Futures).

In March 2012, Avril had a laid back look, including her low maintenance blonde locks.

The punk/pop princess gets in on the quasi-shaved head party in 2012 -- with pink ends to boot!

Nothing compares to Sinead O'Connor, the mother of all head-shaving singers, seen here in 1990.

Sinead's still rocking her signature shaved head in 2012.

Talk about a throwback. That's Rihanna back in 2005 with long, curly locks, stacked gold bangles, a tie dye halter, men's jeans and - of course - a belly chain.

Today, no one rocks the side shave quite like Rihanna. And, thankfully, she put the belly chains away for 2013.

Mena looks as blonde and fresh-faced as ever, nearly 15 years after American Pie.

Back in 2007, Mena shaved it all off for her role in The Garden of Eden.

We've seen celebs take to the clippers for a new role and we've also seen them do so in the midst of a breakdown (we love you Britney Spears, but who can forget?). In honor of Anne Hathaway, Oscars nominee - and winner of multiple awards already! - who chopped off her lovely locks for Les Miserables, we took a look back at stars who have taken it all off.

From Natalie Portman's shave in V for Vendetta to Demi's G.I. Jane scene in 1996, starlets have been proving their dedication to a role has no bounds for years. Whether it's for a role, for a fashion statement, or just out of pure insanity, these ladies show us how to work those clippers!
