Celebrity Big Brother star Courtney Stodden has shaved her hair off as a symbolic gesture to her lost baby after suffering a devastating miscarriage - and she has taken to Instagram to show off her new look.

The reality beauty is world-famous for her bleached blonde, Marilyn Monroe-esque tousles but she took the clippers to her locks on Monday (8 August) to symbolise starting a new chapter and moving on with her life after losing her unborn child.

Before lopping off her locks, Courtney posted an emotional video to her Instagram account which saw her explain her decision to her fans and followers.

Speaking directly to the camera, Courtney said tearfully, "As you all know I recently suffered a miscarriage and it's had huge impact on me emotionally."

"I've decided I want to give back to my angel with a symbolic gesture, and that to me, is shaving my hair off because I want to step into this new chapter in my life, fresh and new," she continued.

Courtney then went on to thank her fans for being there for her through such a difficult time.

"I wanted to share it with you because you're a huge support system to me," Courtney went on to say, "and I love you all so much. Thank you for your support."

The next picture the star posted gave us a good look at her cropped new barnet and in true Courtney style she posed up an absolute storm in a leopard print string bikini with a matching bandana. She even took part in a photoshoot with singer/photographer pal Matthew Paul where she oozed ALL the glam.

As always!

Of course, it wasn't long before the likes and comments came flooding in for Courtney and her updated look, and many took to her feed to praise her for being so brave.

One wrote, "It really is cathartic when you're a girl or woman who chooses to shave their head. When you decide to do something so drastic. It feels a quite liberating! It's like letting go of some of the excruciating pain you've been tortured by."

Another said, "You're being so brave, Courtney. New hair, new chapter. Cut out all the bad memories in your life."
