Britney Spears marks her return to Los Angeles with a new look – a shaved head, which she debuted at a Sherman Oaks, Calif., tattoo parlor Friday night. The pop star, who briefly checked into and out of rehab got inked before donning a hoodie and leaving.
At the tattoo parlor, Spears (who reportedly got one of two new pieces of body art on her wrist of a pair of red lips) shows where to possibly mark the next spot.
Before getting inked Friday night, Spears pays a visit to a San Fernando Valley hair salon, where she took to shaving her own head.
Moments after shaving her own head in Esther's Haircutting Studio in Tarzana, Calif., a teary Britney Spears blurted out, "'My mom is going to freak,'" according to salon owner Esther Tognozzi, who says she tried to talk the pop star out of her radical do.
Spears, 25, stopped by the San Fernando Valley salon at around 7 p.m. Friday night after it had closed.
Accompanied by two bodyguards, Spears walked in with a hoodie covering her head and told Tognozzi, "'I want you to buzz my hair off.'"
Tognozzi first tried to talk Spears out of going through with the shave, then after refusing the pop star's request, Spears told her, "'Then I'll do it.'"
During Spears's visit, Tognozzi describes the pop star as having "no expression." However, she notes Spears smiled for the cameras when waiting photographers caught sight of her newly shorn look inside the salon.
Spears wasn't charged for her buzz cut (usually $20 for men), but Tognozzi says, "Now I'm charging $200 for the Brit-Buzz Special!"
Before Spears slipped out the back door, Tognozzi asked her if the buzz cut was a symbol of a new beginning. Spears's response: "'Something like that.'"
