Millie Bobby Brown Calls Shaving Head Her "Most Empowering Moment"

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. The only image I had in my head about what I could possibly look like is Charlize Theron in Madmax. As I looked at myself and couldn’t see my old self, I realized that now; I have a job to do and that is to inspire other girls that your image or exterior part is not what I think is important. What I find important is caring, loving and inspiring other girls. Thought to share my thoughts during this life changing moment. 🖤

Millie Bobby Brown recently took to Twitter to reflect on what a powerful experience it was for her to shave her head to play Eleven in Stranger Things. 

"The day I shaved my head was the most empowering moment of my whole life," she captioned a clip of her having her head buzzed. 

"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." The 13-year-old added, "As I looked in the mirror I realized I had one job to do. Inspire."
