Emily Cooper isn’t the only one who finds solace in haircut therapy.
Cooper (Lily Collins), the chic expatriate at the center of Netflix’s romantic drama “Emily in Paris,” finds herself turning to an at-home haircut during the Season 3 premiere when a career-related nightmare leaves her feeling overwhelmed.
After a frantic beauty routine fails to do the trick, Cooper grabs a pair of scissors and cuts her own bangs, much to her friend Mindy’s (Ashley Park) dismay.
Collins revealed that she underwent a similar hair makeover in her mid-20s in an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday.
“I had a life change haircut when I was, I think, 26,” Collins said. “I cut all my hair off — it was a pixie haircut — and I went to the Vanity Fair Oscars party and people were like, ‘What happened?’ ”
Collins isn’t the only star who’s used hairstyling as catharsis. Here’s what other celebs have said about their hair transformations.

Demi Lovato lets go of the past with short do
Pop star Demi Lovato ditched her long hair in November 2020 and opted for a trimmed hairdo with shaved sides.
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in February 2021, Lovato – who had the top layer of her hair dyed pink – told DeGeneres that the haircut carried a symbolic meaning.
“I’ve talked a lot about my past, being in recovery from an eating disorder, and I used to use my hair to hide behind. It would cover my body,” Lovato said. “And so when I started doing all this work on myself, I thought, what is something that I’ve been holding on to my whole life that I need to let go of, and it was that.”
