Jennifer Hudson: I'm Thinking About Shaving My Head

Jennifer Hudson has revealed that she’s considering a totally different look for herself – going nearly bald!

The 28-year-old entertainer dished to InStyle, “I am actually thinking about shaving my head…because I feel I’ve got a good structure.”

“My cousin’s a beautician and she’s always saying, ‘You could wear any hairdo,’” Jennifer added. “So I’m thinking, what if I shave my hair? Not completely off, but low. I think that would be so hot. With my diamond studs? But with a cut like that, your face has to be made up at all times.”

Jen is currently the spokesperson for Weight Watchers! She’s gone from a size 16 to a size six and looks great!!

    She isn’t pretty enough to have short hair. Oh gosh, I really hope someone talks her out of this. Yuck!

  • nooo

    I don’t think it would suit her D: Don’t do it Jennifer….

  • RaisingChild

    She is so gorgeous that she could definetely pull it off.

  • Someone

    Do it Jen,she’s a really woman and she’s pretty!

  • The Desolate One

    WHEW! When she said “low”, things seemed much better. Thank god she didn’t say BALD. Actually, with a low cut, she’d probably look pretty cute

  • allison

    her makeup ALWAYS looks flawless….so if she does do the shaved head thing she could pull it off as long as she continues working with the same make-up artist.

  • taiwan

    Whatever she wants. Its her head, you know. Besides, she probably would look pretty hot.
    Congrats to her on her weight loss. She looks awesome!!! :-]

  • Yolanda

    Who are you kidding girl – just lose the wig and you’ll have a tight nappy curl !!!!! Girl is just sick of wigs and weaves and I don’t blame her – she could end up bald like Naomi Campbell !!!!

  • juniper

    I do not think that would be a good look for her.

  • Trance

    Don’t do it Jen, you have beautiful hair!

  • samantha

    People talk about “clothes making the man,” but in my opinion, “hair makes the woman.” Many times you will see women with average faces look very good, on account of their hair. Hair takes your attention away form other unprepossessing qualities like a round face, or unenviable body.

    Case in point would be Jennifer Aniston. She doesn’t have great bone structure in her face ,but she wears her hair in such a manner as to disguise, or mitigate that aspect of her appearance. Thus she looks much better than if her hair was pulled back, or behind her ears.

    I’m not sure how JHud will look, but she is naturally pretty and feminine looking, so the jury is out. It’s an audacious move for sure!

  • Besi

    She looks nice since losing the weight. She has had so much tragedy in her life I’m glad she has found happiness.

  • vinciane (belgium)

    I don’t think she has a size 6!!!!! she lost weight I agree but this size is very low!!

  • laverdadduele

    Jennifer, DON”T DO IT! Nothing will distract us from your face if you shave you head!

  • status quo

    A size 6!? Maybe an 8…but if she is, kudos to her. I want to be a size 6, weight watcher here I come…. Wait, I’m broke so nevermind.

  • Dreads

    @samantha: You’re completely right. Some average women can look amazing with long or big hair. And I’ve heard it more than many times, men prefer women with lots of hair…..long hair, to be correct. This is the sad truth. And I know it because I cut off my hair (which was pretty long) five years ago and all the guys didn’t like it lol. But I didn’t cut ‘em that short….oh well, maybe yeah haha….It was like Halle Berry’s short do. And most people didn’t like it and told me directly. I don’t blame them, at least they were honest. And besides, one of my best girlfriends is an Arab and she was audacious enough to cut off her hair to a short Halle Berry ‘do too! :D ….And all the guys of her community told her that she’s stunningly pretty but they’ll wait until her hair grows back to actually go out with her [BAM] :s ….lol. So yeah, my point is, men love women with long hair, you got it. It’s just like that. I’ve read somewhere that female hair is what attracts males and get them turned on XD ….Geez, I’m taking too much =) I give Hudson huge props for losing the weight, she looks fabulous but I don’t like women with very short hair myself. It’s SO rare to see a woman pull it off. The only ones who do are Natalie Portman, Halle Berry and Agyness Deyn (whatever her name is). But I still prefer them with long hair :p ……I hate the very short hairdo on Rihanna yet she has a great bone structure…… I have to see it on Jennifer Hudson but I don’t think it’ll look that good. Am I clear

    If she wants to do it, I say go for it! She wears wigs and weaves anyway, so if she doesn’t like her new cut she could always go back to using them.

    I understand that some (ok maybe more than some) men like women with long hair, but if a man doesn’t want to be with me because I decide to wear my hair short, I say “kick rocks” to him. As India Arie said, “I am NOT my hair.”

    My mother lost all of her hair due to chemo and is just now starting to grow it back. She is even more beautiful to me now than she was when she had her hair.

  • Alex

    @CJ: I think there is a difference between someone who lost their hair while battling a tough disease (and is starting to grow it back) and someone who is completely healthy and just wants to get rid of her hair. One is a choice and the other is a result of a battle. Your mom probably looks more beautiful than ever because she is strong and healthy. Nobody with a heart would knowingly bash the appearance of someone who has short, unfitting hair by way of something that was not a choice. However, if someone chooses short hair when they clearly don’t have the body or facial structure, then it is a less admirable notion. Jen is pretty exactly how she is. I don’t know why anyone would tell her to cut her hair. I just don’t think it is a good fit.

  • nea


    well if you saw the movie good hair you would understand the ordeal black women go through to have long straight hair.
    maybe jennifer wants a break.

  • jaye

    That would be a change from the wigs she always wear; no one knows what her ‘real” hair looks like anyway

  • Anne

    Can she think over something without it becoming a headline? Wait until she actually does so for goodness sakes, who cares what she’s thinking about doing. Anyway, like a couple of comments said above THAT IS NOT HER HAIR!!! The article (& Jennifer) is so misleading.

  • Helen

    No that wouldn’t be so great. But maybe a long bob, shoulder length would be nice.

  • Carlos

    Can she think this out family will tell you anything. I

  • hatewigs

    Jennifer wouldn’t be shaving her head, just taking her WIG off to reveal her natural short hair. Love you Jennifer but you’re not fooling me!

  • Elizabeth

    I think she should give it a try. If she doesn’t like it then put some hair on.
