Amber Rose cried for a week after first shaving her head

Amber Rose keeps things simple with her off-duty make-up, typically opting for false lashes, a little foundation and a slick of lipstick.

Amber Rose cried for days after she shaved her head for the first time back in her "young rebel" days.

The American model and TV personality always turns heads in her edgy ensembles, which typically include fun jewellery and oversized sunglasses.

And Amber certainly stands out on the red carpet with her signature platinum-dyed buzz cut hairdo, which she has rocked for the past 14 years. But she wasn’t always so sure about the style.

“I was a young rebel and really just wanted to be tatted with a shaved head,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “When I did it, I cried for a week. I was like, ‘Holy s**t I'm so crazy. I can't believe I shaved my head.’ I dyed it blonde maybe a week after and it just softened up my features. I've been short and blonde ever since.”

Amber, 32, currently juggles hosting The Amber Rose Show on VH1, her line with Flirt Cosmetics and preparing for her forthcoming appearance on the 23rd season of Dancing with the Stars, with caring for her three-year-old son Sebastian whom she shares with her ex-husband Wiz Khalifa. With her busy lifestyle, Amber doesn’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning and follows a fairly simple beauty routine.

“I really don't wear a lot of make-up, but my make-up artist Priscilla Ono has taught me the basics. I wear lashes, of course, a little contour, and a lip. And usually I wear shades, so that helps with not doing my make-up. I can put on a cute little face real quick,” she shared.

While Amber appears to have a flawless complexion, she has had struggles with acne in the past. To combat skin issues, the star always keeps her make-up kit stocked with her favourite concealer just in case.

“When I turned 30, I just started getting pimples out of nowhere. I do sometimes break out on my chin. So I just use a little RCMA Foundation to cover up a blemish and that's it. I don't do a full face of make-up,” she said.
