Lupita Nyong'o's dramatic new look will be your force awakening.
While many are opting for the trendy bob cut this spring season, the Black Panther actress is making a convincing case to chop it off completely. Case in point? On May 10, Lupita debuted her newly shaved head with a stunning selfie on Instagram.
Lupita also paired her 'do with an equally eye-catching makeup look, rocking a shimmery bronze eyeshadow, peach-colored blush and a frosted copper lip.
And naturally, the Oscar-winning actress wasn't the one feeling her hair transformation, as she received celebratory messages in her comments section.
How to Get Away With Murder star Aja Naomi King responded, "ASSSSS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!," while Project Runway judge Elaine Welteroth added, "Gorginaaaaa show me a better shaped head. I'll wait..."
Despite saying she would miss her hair, Vernon explained that going short can be a liberating experience.
"Lupita's hair is so beautiful and versatile," he told Marie Claire. "She always looks stunning and the way she wears this hairstyle is no exception. A haircut like this can be rewarding, freeing, and exposing the nape is extremely flattering."
This isn't the first time Lupita has rocked super short hair. In 2014, she admitted her look was inspired by pure laziness.
"I didn't always wear my hair short," she told Essence. "In my adolescence, I always had long hair and it was relaxed. As of the age of 19, I just got really fed up with always going to the salon and it takes so much effort to look presentable before you leave the house. So, I just one day decided to cut it off, and I cut it all off!"
And Lupita has done it once again. See her epic transformation below!
