Here's why Amber Rose Keeps Her Head Shaved

Amber Rose is known for her iconic bleached blonde buzzcut, and in a new interview, she's finally dishing on why she hasn't changed her trademark style in 14 years.

Amber is the new face of Flirt Cosmetics, and for an interview segment with the brand - "29 Questions With Amber Rose" - Amber tackles the topic of her buzzworthy hair, and what inspired her to adopt the look when she was younger.

"I think that I'd definitely seen Sinead O'Connor's 'Nothing Compares 2 U' video," Amber began. "I was inspired by her. And I grew up in Philly... Eve was really popular, and my friends said, 'Please don't do it, Amber, you're gonna look crazy.' And, of course, me being me, I rebelled against everyone and went straight down the middle at a barber shop. Fourteen years later, I still have it."

She went on to say that upkeep is the only drawback to the style.

"The best is that once you cut and bleach it, you have a good three days of waking up and literally your hair being done," Amber said. "But every three days, you have to cut and bleach it, which becomes a process. It's maintenance."

But while the blond buzzcut may be her iconic look, that doesn't mean she's afraid to switch it up — in fact, she wants her fans to expect it.

"I never want my fans to be like, 'Hey, you have to stay bald-headed Amber for the rest of your life,'" Amber continued. "It's unfair to me. I'm a girl. I love to experiment. I love to have fun. I miss having hair. It's been 14 years. I know people aren't used to seeing me with hair, and they get a bit weird about it, but I thought, 'Why not try it on TV, on my own show?'"

Amber has certainly been switching up her look recently, rocking everything from a slicked back blond cut to tousled auburn locks. What's your favorite Amber Rose look?
