Did Millie Bobby Brown shave her head again for Season 4 of Stranger Things?

June 1, 2022

Now that we’re four seasons into it, it can seem nearly impossible to figure out which Stranger Things character is your favorite.

New additions have been thrown into the mix for Season 4 and have been the subject of an absolute uproar, with the likes of Eddie and Argyle being championed by the public.

However, those who started watching the Duffer Brothers’ sci-fi horror epic in 2016 may be more attached to the legacy characters, especially Eleven.

The character’s arc has been nothing short of extraordinary, and Season 4 is a particularly poignant chapter in her journey that has encouraged fans to ask a question not about the narrative but about behind the scenes.

Namely, has Millie Bobby Brown shaved her head yet?

Did Millie Bobby Brown shave her head again?

No, Netflix Life is reporting that Millie Bobby Brown no longer shaved her head for Season 4 of Stranger Things.

Instead, the 18-year-old British actress and model wore a short-haired wig to look like her hair had been cut. This would help explain why her hair still looks a bit longer than when she shaved it off for the first season.

Watching the first episode of the final season, Eleven – known as Jane at school – has a new hairstyle but is later tricked by officials and finds herself trapped and experimented on.

The appearance of a shaved head helps reinforce that she’s somewhat back to square one, echoing her treatment in Season 1.

“The shaved head was a big deal”

While Millie didn’t shave her head last season, that doesn’t mean she didn’t embrace the cut when she first started working on the show.

However, Cinemblend reports that she had an interesting experience following the decision:

“The shaved head was a big deal. On the one hand, it was cool. When you’re bald, the rain feels like a head massage. I was walking in the rain and people looked at me like I was crazy. I would be smiling – so, so happy to have the water on my bare head. But on the other hand, people looked at me wondering if I was sick.

She continues: “Some even made fun of me, without knowing if I was sick or not. It was hurtful, but their attitude taught me something about compassion. In the end, going bald was the best thing I’ve ever done – being different changed my life.

The actress offered this idea ahead of the release of Season 3, adding, “I wanted to embrace my baldness and hopefully inspire people. And now it’s become my message to the world.
