Going through a crazy transformation is a known strategy for winning awards, but 1) it's not like Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown needs a gimmick, and 2) nobody since Natalie Portman can quite pull off a shaved head like her anyway.

In a video posted on Twitter, Brown, who plays Eleven on the Netflix show, first has scissors, then clippers taken to her brown waves.

Now that's what we call dedication to your craft. Brown's hair has since grown out into a pixie, but based on rumors that the next season isn't far away, it might be back to the buzzer for the 12-year-old actress very soon.
