It's the role that put her on the map, and Millie Bobby Brown still looks back to her first season on Stranger Things with nostalgia - particularly for her close-cropped hairstyle! The 13-year-old actress revealed that she loved the look, tweeting: "I miss my shaved head. Shaving your head is so empowering. You don't need hair to be beautiful. You are beautiful with or without. I learnt that too." Her messages prompted many of her fans to share their own stories on why they decided to shave their head.
One mom wrote: "My seven year old wanted to be Eleven for Halloween. When I asked her what she wanted to do with her hair she just said, "Shave it," with a straight face. So we did. She LOVES Stranger Things and the character you play means a lot to her." Another person added: "Amen to that!! Inspired by Eleven and never felt better," along with a selfie showing off her chic look. Another person wrote: "Best decision I've ever made. It made me reali[z]e that the concept of beauty is truly subjective, and I can be pretty like me, I don't have to be pretty like other people. Plus I have only used like two bottles of shampoo/conditioner in 6 months so that's cool too."
Millie isn't the only star to shave their hair off for a role, as Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Kate Hudson also went for the chop for film projects. Speaking about shaving her head for Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize told Ryan Seacrest: "It's the most freeing thing, I highly recommend it. I think every woman should do it." Speaking to ET Online, she added: "This was an exciting one for me. I just had this moment where I was like, 'I need to shave my head! I can't think about what I'm going to do with my hair in this movie. I'm going to be in the desert. I'm a new mother. Let's just shave it.' The next day we did it. I can't even imagine doing it any other way."
