According to Urban Dictionary, the phrase "helmet head" has several definitions (some too risque to list here!) We're referring to the hair style that forms a perfect helmet shape around the head. 

These stars, including Parker Posey above, are perfect examples of helmet head. Is this the new thing in Hollywood? And if so, what is going on? When was helmet head ever sexy?

Check out Lily Allen at the Brit Awards on Feb. 15. We're not sure what's worse: her unflattering hair or the heavily beaded neckline on her dress. She needs a fashion intervention!
