Proving just how far she was willing to go to get the job done, Kate Hudson shaved her head back in July 2017 for her role in the upcoming Sia-directed flick, Sister, and she’s been embracing the short hair life ever since.
While Hudson has access to some of the best hairstylists in the world, she said during a March 2018 appearance on the Lorraine Show that she actually asked her youngest son Bingham and her director (and close friend) Sia to chop off her previously long blonde locks.
“My little one and Sia took clippers to it. It’s funny because when you’re doing it for a role you don’t really think about it because you’re just ready for it. You’re like, ‘Let’s do this.’ But when it was done, it was like: ‘Oh, my head’s shaved,’” she shared. “I really loved it, I actually miss it. My boyfriend [Danny Fujikawa] used to rub my head and it would put me right to sleep. I’ll never forget that sensation of just falling asleep to him rubbing my head. I’d never felt anything like that before.”
It didn’t take long for Hudson’s hair to return, and while many stars would have opted to forgo the time consuming grow-out process in favor of wigs and extensions, the Fabletics designer has been proudly sporting short styles ever since.
Over the course of the last two years, we’ve watched the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star’s mane evolve from a sandy brown buzz to a blonde pixie and, most recently, a chin-length bob. Proving short hair can be just as fun and creative as longer locks, she’s experimented with texture, accessories and, yes, the occasional hair extension along the way that complements her boho-chic style.
