Pink Buzzed Off All Her Hair in a Gorgeous Throwback to Her Early Style

Last night on Instagram, Pink buzzed off all her hair. It's a big change for the singer, but it's a fun throwback to her very early singing days.

Celebs are really feeling hair changeups right now, and Pink is no exception: Last night, she posted a photo on Instagram of a newly shaved head, captioning the photo "Letting Go" and tagging her stylist Pamela Neal in a shot of all the hair on the floor. It's a much shorter look for her—she's had the sides shaved for a while, but the top has been a pompadour made up of several inches of hair. I love it so much—you can still see some of the silvery dye from her longer coif.

Even better, Pink hasn't had her hair buzzed or mega-short in a long, long while, although (of course) she's done a million experiments on her own head. This feels very reminiscent of her early pixies right when she was starting her career, and the even more close-cropped looks she had when she was dating her now-husband Carey Hart.

Here's the buzz cut:

And I'm pretty sure she's had it even shorter than that throughout her career, so it's the perfect throwback.
