Anyone who went from long to short hair knows the fear that comes before it and the relief and joy after. As they say - short hair, don't care!

We recently asked Bored Pandas around the world to share before and after haircut pics of their extreme makeovers, and we were pleasantly surprised! Not only were these people unafraid of scissors choosing their new hairstyles, but many of them also donated their long braids to good causes.

Now we've picked the top hair transformation submissions and combined them with the best internet finds. From badass bald girls giving their hair to charity to guys saying goodbye to the yeti look, these haircut transformations will certainly give you the courage to undergo yours.
