Hello, Jason Momoa With a Buzz Cut
We never thought we'd see the day: Jason Momoa is starting off September with a fresh haircut, and we're not just talking about a little trim. On Sept. 5, the "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" star shared a video on Instagram of him ditching his signature shoulder-length hairstyle for a dramatic, incredibly fresh buzz cut on half his head.
At the start of the video, Momoa says he's "shaving off the hair" as he holds up his recently cut braids and a person off camera continues to shave the sides of his head. He then runs his fingers over the newly shaved section and says, "Oh, man — I've never even felt the wind right there."
Finally, he explains the reasoning behind this drastic change, and it's for a good cause. "Doing it for single-use plastics. I'm tired of these plastic bottles, we gotta stop. Plastic forks, all that sh*t. Sh*t goes into our land, goes into our ocean . . . The things in our ocean, it's just so sad. So, please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your life."
In the caption of the video, Momoa writes, "Heres to new beginnings let's spread the aloha. be better at protecting our land and oceans. we need to cut single use plastics out of our lives and out of our seas. plastic bottles, plastic bags, packaging, utensils all of it. let's aloha our 'āina together aloha j."
He also tagged Mananalu Water, which is the aluminum bottled water company Momoa founded. He started the company in 2019 in an effort to reduce the use of plastic water bottles in lieu of aluminum — an infinitely recyclable material.
