Shannen doherty’s post-chemotherapy hairstyle is a super cute pixie cut
Posted August 10
When Shannen Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015, her entire world was turned upside down. From a mastectomy to chemotherapy to radiation, the brave star was battling for her life.
As she told ET at the time, “The unknown is always the scariest part. Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer? Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable, you know living without a breast is manageable, it’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”
But, finally, after two years of this battle, Doherty has good news: Her cancer is in remission. As she shared on Instagram, “I am blessed, I know that. But for now now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe. #cancerslayer.”
As part of her new chapter, Doherty is embracing her hard-won health with a beautiful pixie cut. She lost her gorgeous chestnut locks during her fight with cancer, but as her hair is now growing back, she was finally able to try a new look…and it is simply stunning:
She looks like Audrey Hepburn! Short hair really works for her.
And, not only is her hair back, but so is her career. She is on the set of “Heathers,” which is going to be a 10-episode televised reboot of the 1988 cult classic. Doherty starred in the original alongside Christian Slater and Winona Ryder, and a remake just would not have been the same without her.
It’s so wonderful to see Doherty healthy and working once again, and her bravery and strength have brought inspiration to many women who are facing the same tough battle. She’s truly a stunning warrior, whether she’s rocking a pixie, a shaved head or long locks.
