It Took A Surprising Amount Of Work To Create Eleven's Signature Haircut In Stranger Things

Millie Bobby Brown is so good in Stranger Things that it's hard to believe that she's only 12. The actress behind Eleven shared a video showing her getting Eleven's short, short haircut; I had assumed it was as simple as just shaving it off, but it turns out there was a rather complicated cutting regimen.

As an extra-cool bit of information tying this winter's obsession to last winter's: Stranger Things creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer told Entertainment Weekly that Millie and her parents were a bit hesitant about shaving her head, but Mad Max: Fury Road saved the day. "[W]e pulled out a magazine photograph of Charlize Theron as Furiosa and showed it to Millie. 'Charlize looks totally badass, right?' Millie agreed; Charlize looked badass. And that was it: She agreed to buzz it all off."

And now the video seems even cooler now.
