Sinead O'Connor burst onto the music scene in the '80s and refused to bend to anyone's expectations of a female rock star. When industry executives suggested that she wear more feminine clothing and hairstyles, she rebelled. In 2014, the singer told Oprah, "I went straight around to the barber and shaved the rest of my hair off." The rest, as they say, is history!

Sigourney Weaver joked with the Chicago Tribune about using her dramatic transformation for her role in "Alien 3." She told the paper, "Of course if I have to shave my head, I'll have to ask for more money." The quip supposedly made the studio executives nervous, but it was all in good fun for the actress who kept the cut for five months on set in England.
