Her parents weren't too fond of the idea.
If you watched 'Stranger Things' on Netflix, then you're almost definitely a fan of Millie Bobby Brown; the shaven-headed little girl who plays the mysterious telekinetic child Eleven. If that girl isn't destined for huge things in the future then we don't know who is. But just how did this 12-year-old survive her first daunting head-shave?

As it turns out, pretty easily. The actress shared a video of herself getting the chop, while pulling funny faces and not shedding a single tear. The hairdresser is seen carefully cutting the hair at the roots and passing each section to another person who appears to lay it out on the side. It sure looks as though their trying to keep all the hair intact, possibly because she's donating her locks to a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer? We hope so.
'Here it is!! The video of me getting my hair shaved for #StrangerThings! Enjoy!' She captioned the sped up clip which featured the Beyoncé song 'Pretty Hurts'. Apparently, her mother wasn't too happy about the whole thing to begin with, but nothing was stopping Millie once the show's producers showed her a picture of Charlize Theron.
'Mad Max: Fury Road was about to come out, so we pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie', said 'Stranger Things' creators Matt and Ross Duffer in an interview with EW. '[We asked] 'Charlize looks totally badass, right?' Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off.'
