Jessie J Has Hair Shaved Off For Charity
Singer Jessie J said goodbye to her famous locks when she had her head shaved to help raise money for a good cause.
The Price Tag star underwent the daring deed on live TV during Red Nose Day.
Comedian Lenny Henry started off the process of cutting off Jessie's hair to a length of just 0.5mm, before the singer's hair stylist took control of the clippers.
After she was left bald, Jessie touched her head several times, apparently in disbelief.
Speaking to host Dermot O'Leary, the singer said: "It's the weirdest feeling."
She had admitted being nervous beforehand, but told viewers: "It feels so liberating. But this isn't about this (gesturing to her head), it's about donating."
She added: "I wanted to do something that wasn't just for today and wasn't just for five minutes, it's going to last a few months. It will remind me and hopefully others that everyday you should do something good if you can."
Jessie, who has visited Comic Relief-funded project Body & Soul which helps young people living with HIV, so far raised more than £500,000 by having her head shaved.
She said it was "amazing" to have raised so much cash, and added: "Everyone's crying. My mum's back there, crying with happiness."

what do you think?
she still looks good well done jessie
She looks great, without the hair, and then you see the tattoos, and think of the fairground.
Get the tattoos lasered off, and i'll bung a few quid in the fund, as well. Women with tattoos.... yuk.
Liberated? She looks like she is ready for the penal colony on Fiorina 161
Still looks fit
Looks prettier without her hair. Oh,and the tattoos are fine.
Im not a fan but as some of you are slagging her off, what did you do for comic relief?
I shave my head every 6 weeks. I got a full set of hair. So good for the roots.
yay she cut her hair
Well done Jessie! I think you look beautiful as a baldy and you are beautiful inside as well for doing that for charity.
