The way you dress, wear your makeup and style your hair are the most visible form of self expression. Why stick to just one look when you can rock multiples? Obviously not everyone can pull off a certain look even if you’re rich; as the saying goes, “money can’t buy style”.
Female celebs are not one to shy away from trying out new hairstyles. They can go from having long hair to a buzz cut, straight to curly hair or dye their hair in a mixture of fun colours. Possibilities are endless. Malaysian actress Sharifah Sakinah recently shared her newly shaved head look on her Instagram but reception hasn’t been all good.
Earlier this month on 5th July, actress Sharifah Sakinah posted a photo of her rocking her new shaved hairdo on her Instagram with the caption, “And the Oscar goes to: 👨🦲GI Jane,” possibly referencing the Will Smith’s Oscars incident back in March.
The photo was met with mostly positive reactions from both fans and celebrity friends who complimented the mother-of-one calling her handsome with her new do. Although the comments have been overwhelmingly positive, it’s also no surprise that many do not agree with the actress’s choice of hairstyle.
Netizens commented on the “Hantu Raya Pergi Perang” star’s original buzz cut post as well as on her more recent ones of just her going about her day. Many called her out for sporting a look that’s considered ‘haram’ in Islam and even questioned her religion while others made jokes about her having cancer. There are also those who called her ugly for having a shaved head.
So far, Sharifah Sakinah only responded to one netizen who made a joke about her having cancer in an IG story saying, “Please leave me alone. It’s only a haircut.” It’s quite unfortunate that some keyboard warriors feel entitled to criticise the actress. Hopefully, it’s water off a duck’s back.
