In "Ain't nobody got time fo' dat" news, hitting the salon three or more times a week for a pricy blowout: smart or silly?

For Sandra Ballantine, making it to the salon three times a week for blowouts became a way of life. That is, until a friend noticed there was no shampoo in her house and helped her realize she was spending up to $250 a week on her hair.

He issued a challenge--quit all heat styling cold turkey for three months and write about it for W magazine--and she accepted.

Blowout Addict Sandra Ballantine

At first, Ballantine "didn't think [she] could do it." Then, she says, "I kind of got over myself." 

After seeking advice from her stylist, who looked but didn't touch, and taking inspiration from Kate Moss, Ballantine eventually rose to the challenge. The first time she washed and air-dried her hair, she "looked like an extra from Game of Thrones."

Johnny Depp is known for his many unique looks on screen, from The Mad Hatter to Edward Scissorhands to Captain Jack Sparrow.

But the multiple-time Oscar nominee surprised fans over the weekend by debuting a unique look in real life, going blonde for an event at the London Film Festival that honored Christopher Lee.

Johnny Depp Blonde Hair

Depp was on hand to present the legendary actor with the British Film Institute Fellowship, hailing his frequent co-star as a "a very great man indeed."

Jada Pinkett Smith has been going through a tough time recently.

No, this is not a story about an impending divorce from Will Smith. All really does seem fine on that marital front.

Instead, it's a story about what Smith herself has dubbed an "emotional breakdown," as she took to Facebook last week and wrote about a flood of tears that resulted from "the loss of loved ones" from her life.

"This morning I woke up to the screeching howl of my husky outside. His howls mirrored my broken, empty heart that plagued me this morning," she wrote on October 2, later adding:

Demi Lovato took a break from judging The X Factor last night to debut both her new song and some seriously blue hair on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The 21-year old took to the NBC stage for a rendition of "Neon Lights," the third single off her latest album and also the title of her upcoming tour.

But fans were far more focused on the locks on top of Demi's head than the words emanating from her mouth, as Lovato showed off a fresh color that would make Papa Smurf proud.

How does it compare to her previous blonde look? Compare, contrast and vote now:

For Vanessa Hudgens, the weather isn't the only change that accompanies a move from summer to fall.

The 24-year old took to Instagram yesterday and showed off a new tri-colored hair style that she dubbed with a simple two word caption her "Autumn hair."

In the shot (below), we see Hudgens with long, curly locks that are now a shade of dark brown… blonde… and red. You can't accuse the pretty young star of being boring, can you?

Vanessa Hudgens Hair Change

Vanessa isn't the only celebrity to recently undergo a hair change.

Claire Danes showed up at the Emmys with a shorter 'do; Kim Kardashian is now blonde; and Beyonce can't seem to decide on the length of her hair.

What do you think of Hudgens' multi-colored fall look?

Rihanna appears on the cover of Glamour this month. At least we think that's her. It's kind of hard to tell with this first ballot Photoshop Hall of Fame entry.

Rihanna Glamour Magazine Cover

While we often use the phrase "style chameleon" and Rihanna certainly fits the mold, most Rihanna photos in question are still unquestionably Rihanna.

This? We have no idea what this is.

It's half early Michael Jackson, half bad '80s movie, half bad editing. Yes. We realize those are three halves. It's just that bizarre of a cover, people!

Still, we're talking about a woman who can sell anything. Even this. The girl could wear a paper bag and still look fierce. It's all about the 'tude with her.

Beyonce's experiment with a short haircut proved short-lived.

The pixie cut is no more, and her hair is now waist-length!

Check out the style chameleon's latest look right now:

Beyonce Long Hair

Beyonce herself showed off the newly-extended (and blonde) tresses on her Tumblr account from Brazil, the latest stop on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

A clue that the "Love on Top" singer herself, like the rest of the Internet or at least the vocal part, wasn't completely in love with Beyonce's short haircut?

It became a longer bob just a week after her initial cut. Soon after the bob, she stepped out sporting an even longer style (a lob, or long bob, if you will).

And now this. All is right with the world again. PHEW.

Claire Danes' Emmy dress, her surprising new hairstyle and her husband were all the subjects of great interest among viewers of the telecast last night.

She also made the list of Emmy winners for the second straight year. Ho hum.

  • Claire Danes Hair
  • Claire Danes at the Emmys
  • Claire Danes, Husband

The actress' short, apparently clipped bob was much shorter than fans are used to, even compared to her shoulder-length hair just one night earlier.

Fans and red carpet hosts alike were abuzz after the Homeland star seemingly went the way of Miley Cyrus, Lena Dunham and made this drastic charge.

The riddle was quickly solved, and the talents of celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler revealed. The bob was created as an illusion to elongate her neck.

So to speak. Using a combination of products and techniques, he managed to alter her look dramatically based on Danes' plunging Armani Prive gown.

Styled, parted, combed, pinned and styled again, Danes' look was complete. As for the star's husband? He's Hugh Dancy, a British actor (Hannibal).

What do you think of Claire Danes' Emmy look?

It is on between Rose Byrne and Kendall Jenner.

The actress debuted some seriously blonde hair at the 2013 Emmys last night, walking the red carpet and causing heads up and down The Nokia Theater to turn in impressed response.

Jenner, meanwhile, didn't attend the event. But she still made hairy headlines of her own, Instagram-ing a photo of some lighter locks before going to sleep on Sunday.

So... who pulls off her new 'do the smoothest? Vote now:

Is Kristen Stewart losing sleep - and losing her hair - over Robert Pattinson? A new report and photos of her noticeably visibly scalp and have sparked rumors.

Although she's just 23, Kristen Stewart does appear to have a bit of a bald spot, which could be attributed to a number of different causes of course:

  • Maybe she's deficient in a few nutrients? Eh. No chance.
  • Overdoing it with some heat hairstyling tools? Doubtful.
  • Stress after breaking up with Robert Pattinson and anxiety over the emotional rollercaster and their potential future as a couple? A little less doubtful.
  • Just a bad set of photos or a bad hair day? Probably.

The location of that part is not helping. If she went down the middle or only slightly over to one side, it might do wonders as far as hiding the "bald" spot.
