Britney’s Cure for a Bad Hair Day!

This weekend, before our Vitello’s dinner, my boyfriend had the idea to stalk the Tarzana salon where Britney Spears shaved herself bald in February of last year.  Apparently, at around 7pm on the night of February 16th, after the salon was already closed for the night, Britney along with one of her bodyguards entered the shop and asked Esther Tognozzi to give her a buzz cut.  When Esther refused, Britney took matters into her own hands and shaved her head bald. 

Later that week Esther and her husband put BritBrit’s hair up for sale on eBay for a cool $1.2 million!  They were also going to throw in the half empty can of Red Bull Britters was drinking during the hair cut, her blue Bic lighter and the electric razor she used to shear herself.  I am not sure what happened, but the listing was taken down off of Ebay before the hair was ever sold.  The website Esther started – – has also been taken down.  Maybe Esther just couldn’t bear to part with such an iconic piece of history.  For the time being, whatever happened to Britney’s hair will, I guess, remain a mystery.

Esther’s Haircutting Salon is a tiny little place set way back on Ventura Boulevard.  How Britney chose this tiny little salon to shave herself bald is beyond me.  I sooooo wanted to go inside and talk to Esther herself but my boyfriend flat out refused and said he’d leave me there if I did so.  LOL  I guess I’ll have to go back to Esther’s on my own to do some further stalking.

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  🙂

Stalk It: Esther’s Haricutting Studio is located at 18360 Ventura Boulevard in Tarazana.  It is set back a bit from the road, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.  You can visit the salon’s website here.

  1. The reason she shaved her head was because she had been told that Kevin Federline’s lawyers were going to have her tested for drugs and would take hair samples if they had to. Meth will do that.

  2. Kung Fu Panda

    What you did not include was BS went to Sherman Oaks afterwards and got herself 2 tattoos, I only remember one of them was a “lips” tattoo on her wrist. I can’t remember what the other one was. The tattoo place is called “Body and Soul”
