There’s a myth running around in certain circles that the minute you start going bald, your life is supposedly over and it’s all downhill from there. Well, the truth is that going hairless isn’t the end — it’s just the beginning.

Celebrities who shaved their heads are the perfect example that a bald head doesn’t diminish someone’s beauty. In fact, sometimes it even enhances it. To show you that everything’s all right with going bald, Bored Panda compiled a list of photos showing stars before and after they shaved their heads.

Scroll down, upvote the celeb pics you enjoyed looking at, and share this list with your pals. Let us know in the comments below what you think of popular celebrities with shaved heads and how you perceive people who have gone bald.

Some would argue that shaving your head is far from the same thing as going bald. Especially if you’re a celebrity because a large chunk of stars tend to drastically change their hairstyles: they dye their hair, they add extensions, they curl it, etc. Eventually, the only novel thing left to do is to shave it off.

Celebrities tend to draw more attention without any hair on their noggin. Most of all if they’re female. For example, in 2005, Natalie Portman shaved her hair for her role in the movie V for Vendetta: the scene had to be done in one take, so there was a lot of pressure on everyone to do their best.

“With hair, I can camouflage with people [but] as a female with a shaved head, people tend to stare just naturally," Portman told MovieWeb.

Ummm. There's about 15 years between these two pictures. He did shave his head in the 90's, while still in NSYNC, and looked like a total goofball.

I think he looks much better without the long hair and the beard. The first picture he looks like someone from yoga camp, the 2nd picture he looks intense.

Nope, can’t get behind this one. I go back to when he was Jordan Catalano, and I will always swoon over locks of his hair falling into his eyes lol

While some people tend to make fun of bald people (they obviously have nothing better to do with their lives), scientists have noticed some interesting trends related to how we perceive power and status.

USA Today writes that researchers from the University of Pennsylvania determined that bald men appear more dominant, taller, and stronger. The study also notes that shaved heads “are often found on men in traditionally masculine professions, so dominance may emerge through stereotypical associations with these figures.” Do you think there’s any weight to these findings, dear Pandas? Share your thoughts on these cool haircuts with everyone.

Gorgeous, but the second picture isn't taken at a good angle. It makes her head look huge. Don't get me wrong, she is absolutely beautiful regardless of hairstyle, but a bad angle can make anyone look weird/odd.
