Interesting question. How about Forrest Gump?

For a better chance of your list being selected as a poll, please correct your text:

Which is your favorite character with a significant change in hair style due to events in their lives?

And for the title, maybe something like:

Hair Style Changes

Welcome Abdullah,

Question: Does it have to be their actual hair or do wigs count? If so there would be hundreds of options.

I suggest you use this photo for Walter White as the one you have currently doesn't show his "new" style: http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0074133/mediaviewer/rm3097506304

I uploaded some photos of Olivia Cooke with her head shaved in Me Earl and the Dying Girl. And photos of Phillipa and Filippo from Heaven with their heads shaved. I'll let you know when they are approved.

For your consideration (to be added to the list):
Vanessa Hudgens - Gimme Shelter
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - 50/50
Rachael Leigh Cook - Blow Dry (I've uploaded a photo and will let you know when it's approved)
Jodie Foster - The Accused
Joey King - Wish I Was Here
Hilary Swank - Boys Don't Cry
Audrey Hepburn - Roman Holiday
Rooney Mara - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Kristen Stewart - The Runaways
Charlize Theron - Mad Max: Fury Road
Natalie Dormer - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
Tommy Lee Jones - Cobb
Mia Farrow - Rosemary's Baby
Cara Delevinge - Life in a Year
Mille Bobby Brown - Stranger Things
Amandla Stenberg - Where Hands Touch
James McAvoy - X-Men: Apocalypse

i dot't think wigs would count , and the change has to be within the movie, not from the beginning , i'am also trying to find more guys than girls ,and less of the military & chemotherapy related , and regarding Walter white i've chosen this photo because everyone remembers him as bold so i thought this one would be more eye-catching.

,thanks a lot though

Regarding Walter White, your question is about hair style changes. Thus I feel strongly that the photo should reflect that. That being said, this is your list and you can do what you want.

Interesting idea!

For your poll to be considered, you need to add a link to your list that leads back to this thread:

Abdullah, are you going to add any of my suggestions? Making polls is a collaborative effort, so it is customary include any suggestions from other pollsters that fit into the suggestion. You also expressed a need for more male characters and I provided those.

Hi Abdullah and welcome to poll-authoring. :)

This is a great idea for a poll. My vote would probably go to Evey from V for Vendetta.

FYC:
Derek in American History X. For the first one-third of the film he is almost bald, as he is a "skinhead" Nazi. After time in prison, with his changing beliefs and attitudes, he grows his hair out.

Photo: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120586/mediaviewer/rm87922688

FYC:
In contrast, Derek's younger brother, Danny, goes from having a full head of hair, almost on the long side, to the skinhead look as he falls in with Derek's old gang while Derek's in prison.

Below are some additional suggestions. I tried to keep in mind that you're especially looking for less changes due to chemo and less buzz-cuts for military service. 

Tom Cruise, in Born on the Fourth of July, goes from a standard short, well groomed haircut to the standard military buzz-cut and then, as an anti-war protester after he comes home from the war, he grows his hair long and fairly unkempt.
Photo: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096969/mediaviewer/rm488410624

The character, Gloria, in Orange is the New Black: from long, "feminine" hair to short & plain in prison: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2372162/mediaviewer/rm19065344

Jodie Foster's character, Sarah Tobias, cuts her hair short herself after being raped. It goes from long, femine, and wavy, to short in a "chopped" style. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094608/mediaviewer/rm3706726656

Ally Sheedy's Allison in Breakfast Club: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088847/mediaviewer/rm3872657664

I also second this from The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo: http://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/38300000/Lisbeth-Salander-Rooney-Mara-The-Girl-with-the-Drago...  (It wasn't on IMDb but I added it; it's not appearing on IMDb, yet, but hopefully it will within six hours.) (It's a huge change and made for deception, persuasion, and to hide her identity.)


'Hope this helps. :)

She had long hair, down to the about the middle of her back, and "on the outside," it was usually styled. 

Speaking of OITNB, waiting for season six seems torturous, already - and there's still - what? about nine months to go? Lol.

Looks like you accidentally put Bill Murray's name instead of Ally Sheedy.

Hi Abdullah, 

As you may know, polls can have up to 35 entries/voting options, so you can still add fourteen more, if you wish. There are still plenty of options, including some that Jen, Peter, and I suggested, and giving voters more choices is usually a good thing: The more choices, the greater the chance that a voter is going to see something for which he or she is enthusiastic about voting. Voters might also think of someone after reading the introduction and they tend to like it if that character is represented on the list. 

While you certainly don't have to add other people's suggestions, collaboration generally makes for better polls with more of a chance of going live. This is a good idea for a poll; I'd encourage you to go a bit further with it. :-)

p.s.: The photo of Rooney Mara in The Girt with a Dragon Tattoo that I added is now on IMDb and available for use:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1568346/mediaviewer/rm4108984576

(If you didn't see the movie, this is an example of her hair before she changed it:

She's wearing a wig, though. Jen asked about wigs in her first post.

i want to add Emile Hirsch from Lords of Dogtown ,but there isn't any photo of him bald in the movie page nor are there in the actor's page,
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0355702/?ref_=ttmi_tt

 i've tried to submit photos before and it didn't work.

That happens to me sometimes. I'll try to find a photo of Hirsch for that film that IMDb will hopefully accept. 

By the way, the list is looking good. I like the image you chose for Danny in American History X.

I added an image of him bald (I didn't see the movie but I'm assuming that's what you wanted since there is an image of him with long hair). It's not up yet and it can take one to five days but usually is up sooner. I'm hoping it's accepted -- I expect that it will be.

I'd really encourage you to add Peter's suggestion of Forest Gump with that really long hair and beard. That would be a popular one and get a lot of votes. :)  Oh, and it's a man and not a change related to the military or chemotherapy, which I think you said you wanted -- it's so true that so many extreme hair changes are for one of those two reasons.

If you want it, I thought of another one:

Tom Hanks in Cast Away
before: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162222/mediaviewer/rm780441856
after: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162222/mediaviewer/rm545560832

I hope you're having fun making your first poll -- it's a good one. If you've had any difficulties, it gets easier. You're doing a great job with it. :)
