Like Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta, and Charlize Theron in Mad Max before her, there's no doubt that the close crop that Millie Bobby Brown sported as Eleven in Stranger Things will forever have a place in buzz-cut history. And that's not even to mention that the look is perfectly on trend, as models like Ruth Bell, Kris Gottschalk, and Grace Bol have proven on countless catwalks over the past couple of years, it's never been cooler to bare your scalp.
But as you're sifting through the latest Stranger Things fan theories (this one is eerie) and using your #WinonaForever hashtag with abandon, might we interest you in a video that essentially shows Brown becoming Eleven for the first time? Yesterday, the 12-year-old took to Instagram to post clips of her transformative head-shave—and her reaction is priceless.
(Oh, and it's all set to a Beyoncé soundtrack, natch.)

Can we point out that after the gleeful shock of the initial chop, Brown seems to suddenly adopt a very Eleven-like stoicism? It's pretty cool to watch this badass character really come to life. (And I mean, #beautygoals.)
Thinking about going for the buzz yourself? Just keep in mind that while this 'do is about as low-maintenance as it gets, scalp health is paramount. Keep dryness and flakes at bay with a shampoo fortified with tea tree oil, which acts as a gentle but highly effective antiseptic and antibacterial.
