When Cara Delevingne announced that she was going to dye her hair and shave her head sometime in the foreseeable future, who could have predicted it would have come to fruition so swiftly. Just a few weeks ago, the supermodel and actress told USA Today that it was all in the interest of her upcoming part in Life in a Year. “I have to shave my head for my next part, so I have to do something different,” she explained. “So I dyed it. Just for fun. Just to change it up.”
Part one of the prophecy came true when Delevingne, who also stars in the upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets upgraded her icy silver lob with pale pink strands this week. Her costar, Jaden Smith also debuted a hair makeover of his own, getting in the salon chair while his dad, Will Smith, took him from long blonde locks to a buzz cut. Now, it looks like the fateful moment is finally here for Cara. She took to Instagram Stories to share a picture of her pink-and-blonde hair hitting the floor, captioning it, “Oh no!” She has yet to share snaps of the final ‘do, but judging by her earlier hints, she’s about to show us exactly what she looks like with a shaved head.
The singe follows in the footsteps of Kristen Stewart, who last month arrived the premiere of her new film Personal Shopper, looking nearly unrecognizable with a shaved head dyed bleached blonde. Like Delevingne, that buzz is also for a role; in this case, Underwater, which “focuses on an underwater scientific crew forced to go on a dangerous journey for survival following an earthquake” according to Variety.
Katy Perry also recently debuted a shorter cut, revealing a platinum ‘do inspired by Annie Lennox and Agyness Deyn earlier this week. What can we say? The pixie is in.
