These usually polished celebrities threw caution to the wind for this latest photo shoot to get the wild hair look.
Amy Huberman, Jennifer Zamparelli, Angela Scanlon and Eoghan McDermott all volunteered to go for the messy hairdo in aid of raising awareness for an ISPCC Childline fundraiser.
Professional hair salons taking part in the Get Blown Away campaign by donating the cost of one blow-dry by each hairdresser to the charity.
The campaign, supported by L'Oreal and RTE 2fm, runs from Thursday, May 26 until Saturday, May 28.
Actress and author Amy said she was delighted to be involved with such a worthy cause.
"What an easy and enjoyable way to lend your support, by getting your hair done," she said.
"Hats off to all the wonderful stylists donating the proceeds of blow-dries in salons all over Ireland."
Participants are encouraged to post before and after pictures online with the hashtag #GetBlownAway and join in the fun.
Meanwhile, Amy has another reason to smile as she has landed a role on RTE's upcoming comedy show, Can't Cope, Won't Cope.
The six-part series will also star Norma Sheahan and is written by Stefanie Preissner, who previously wrote hit one-woman show and radio play Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend.
Can't Cope, Won't Cope will hit our TV screens in the autumn, but filming will begin in the coming days.
"It'll be my first time working with RTE since Yer Bad Self and The Clinic," said Amy. "So I start work on that next week and it should be exciting."
The series follows two Cork twentysomethings, Aisling and Danielle, whose fast lifestyles start to spiral out of control.
Rising stars Seana Kerslake and Nika McGuigan star as Aisling and Danielle.
Acclaimed actress Eileen Walsh will also star in the drama, which is directed by Cathy Brady.
"The show aims to capture what life is really like for young women as they navigate their way through all the drinking, dating and drama of their 20s," said RTE head of comedy, talent development and music Eddie Doyle.
This is the first comedy series for Amy since Comedy Central's Threesome. She also starred in RTE comedy sketch series Yer Bad Self with Domhnall Gleeson.
She will next appear in John Butler's rugby comedy Handsome Devil - her husband Brian O'Driscoll also had a role in the film.
Although he will not appear on camera, British and Irish Lion BOD was enlisted to choreograph sporting set-pieces.
Childline is the only 24-hour listening service that seeks to support children and young people in Ireland.
