Sharon Osbourne typically wears her hair in a pixie cut, a style that is short, choppy and edgy. She also usually dyes her hair a maroon-red that coordinates with her makeup.
Osbourne is an author, television personality and wife of heavy metal rock musician Ozzy Osbourne. She first rose to prominence on MTV's "The Osbournes," a reality television show about her family that ran from 2002 to 2005. After the show ended, she continued to appear on television in various capacities, including hosting and making guest appearances. Her first autobiography, "Extreme," published in 2005, won Biography of the Year at the British Book Awards in March 2006 and sold over 2 million copies.
Osbourne's dyed pixie hairstyle is often praised for being mature, elegant and edgy at the same time. She generally dyes her hair a dark maroon color, but has been known to experiment with all shades of the red family. Osbourne has had short hair for years. In the 1980s, she wore it in the popular feathered style of the time, rather than the choppy style she became known for on her show.
Osbourne was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2002. When the process of chemotherapy made her lose her hair, the same wigmaker employed by musician Cher made custom wigs for Osbourne. She recovered from her illness against a 33 percent survival rate. She also underwent a double mastectomy in 2012 after discovering she had a genetic predisposition to breast cancer.
