Millie Bobby Brown called the day she shaved her head "the most empowering moment of her life"

Sharing the love for short and shaved hair.

MILLIE BOBBY BROWN has been reminiscing a lot lately on Twitter about her time on set for Stranger Things.

Season two premiered in October last year, meaning we have a while to go before we get another look at what Eleven and the gang are up to now. That would explain the nostalgia anyway.

For season one, Millie had to shave her head at the age of 12 for the role in the series.

She explained how shaving her head felt “empowering”, and also realised that you didn’t need hair to be beautiful.

The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life. The last strand of hair cut off was the moment my whole face was on show and I couldn’t hide behind my hair like I used to. As I looked in the mirror I realized I had one job to do. Inspire.”


People on Twitter then joined her in sharing their short hair stories.

… Including this cute gal who wanted to be her for Halloween.
