Doja Cat shaved her head in August 2022, and since then has rocked her buzz cut for the majority of her bold fashion appearances – including many of her recent headline-making looks at Paris Fashion Week. She told Variety in a recent interview that the experience was freeing for her – and that it made the process of wig installation, when she does choose to wear one, a lot easier.
“When I shaved my eyebrows off and I shaved my head, I remember thinking, ‘Get this sh*t off of me,’ because I needed to change something,” she said. “I was like, ‘I need to do something,’ so I just chopped it all off. And I could see the shape of my head. I could see my whole face. I can see my ears, now that I don’t have a wig that’s glued to my forehead… So, yeah, it’s the best choice I’ve ever made, and I’ve never felt more beautiful.”
She added: “And you know what? I still wear wigs, and they look better now because I don’t have so much hair under them, braided with grease and glue buildup because I wouldn’t wash my hair for two or three weeks at a time. Now I have a f*cking hair hat — a shake-and-go — and I just slap it on and it’s cute and I look like a little ‘Pulp Fiction’ girl.”
