Britney Spears marched into a random hair salon and shaved off her hair in - and a tattooist who saw her that night tells Channel 5 documentary Britney Spears - Breaking Point just why she did it. Fans could only look on in horror as Britney Spears hit the self-destruct button in amid a harrowing breakdown. In the space of 14 months, an all-too public battle with mental illness saw her fade from a million-dollar selling pop princess into a broken and vulnerable star, who had to be wheeled out of her own home strapped to a gurney. But perhaps one of the most profoundly tragic images from that time was of Britney shaving her own head. The shocking incident unfolded after she fled rehab in Antigua and turned up at ex-husband Kevin Federline's house, demanding to see their sons Sean and Jayden. Do you love celebrity and TV news?

She recoiled from celebrity culture by mortifying her own flesh. She stripped herself, publicly, of her sexuality. In boot camp, soldiers lose their individuality with their hair.
