Millie Bobby Brown Tweets About Shaved Hair

Millie Bobby Brown Says Shaving Her Hair Was the "Most Empowering Moment of My Life"

Millie Bobby Brown is the coolest 13-year-old ever, and she's proven that point once again with her recent tweets. Not only is she a crazy-good actress, responsible for everyone's favorite Netflix character, but she's also wise beyond her years and often shares inspiring messages with her fans.

This weekend, Millie took to Twitter to share her many thoughts. Among tweets about how great sleeping is (preach), she spoke about how empowering it was to shave her head. Her first tweet simply shared how much she missed her shaved hair, and even though Millie loved her hair at the Golden Globes (and we continue to obsess over it), she said on Twitter that her shaved hair made her feel empowered. Her experience made her realize that you don't need hair to be beautiful.

Millie followed this by sharing a video of her hair transformation for the role as Eleven in Stranger Things, with the message that afterward, she wasn't able to hide behind her hair like she used to. She ended her series of inspiring tweets by saying, "As I looked in the mirror I realized I had one job to do. Inspire."

Millie's words encouraged her followers to share their own photos and experiences of shaving their hair. One 7-year-old fan in particular was inspired to shave her hair after seeing Millie's. Her mum shared the story and photos of her daughter dressed as Eleven for Halloween. When she asked what she wanted to do with her hair on the day, the daughter replied, "Shave it!", and that's exactly what happened. The mom said that Millie's character of Eleven means a lot to her.
