Cara Delevingne has been teasing a drastic change to her hair do for a few days now, and she finally went ahead and took the plunge for her new movie Life in a Year, chopping off a significant chunk of her locks. Now, she's finally shared the results of her haircut, and they are dramatic. Take a look:
It was just a short time ago that Cara Delevingne revealed she had to shave her head for the new movie Life in A Year. In that flick, she'll portray a young woman who is dying. The movie also stars Jaden Smith as her boyfriend who will strive to help her live a full life in the year she has left to live. Ill people often lose their hair, and Cara Delevingne spoke out at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to say this about the change:
If you look at Cara Delevingne's new 'do, you'll probably notice that the actress did not, in fact, shave her head, although it is very, very short. Although I would have been interested to see whether or not the actress can pull off a shaved head, I'm assuming that we'll probably see her in a bald cap when Life in a Year hits theaters unless she cuts it shorter before then. Although there's no shaved head in Cara Delevingne's social media profiles, she did shed her hair in a dramatic way, sharing an image with her Instagram followers via her stories that showed exactly how much hair she got rid of.
What's most intriguing about Cara Delevingne's bold choice to chop off her locks is that it's becoming common in Hollywood. Just a few weeks ago Kristen Stewart did very much the same thing, shaving her head and then dying what little hair remained for the movie Underwater. Then, a week ago Katy Perry also cut off her hair, rocking a nearly buzzed pixie that looks pretty darn similar to Cara Delevingne's. Women in Hollywood have obviously shaved their heads before this, some of them more noticeably than others. In fact, Katy Perry has even made fun of Britney Spears' big head-shaving moment in the past, so her newer, shorter locks are a bit unexpected. However, what's interesting about these three hairdos is that they are all coming around the same time. It could be the start of a trend. Or at least a slew of movies featuring ladies getting bad illnesses?
Life in a Year is currently schedule for 2018, and by the time the movie comes out Cara Delevingne will probably be back to her longer locks. In the meantime, you can catch her in Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets is set to hit theaters on July 21. Take a look at the other big movies coming this summer with our release guide.
