Curl maven Amandla Stenberg just did the big chop for her a new role and it’s pretty amazing. We almost didn’t recognize the actress who has been known for giving curl envy since first hitting the scene.

She first took to Instagram to debut the buzzed look after completing work on her new film Where Hands Touch with critically acclaimed Belle director Amma Asante.

“I just finished working on a film called Where Hands Touch directed by the incredible @iammaasante,” she posted. “The story is about the experience of biracial children growing up in Nazi Germany. I shaved my head for the role.”

She later hit the red carpet at a Golden Globes after party on Sunday to show off her now golden mane. While we love the teen’s curly coif, she also looks great with the new shaved ‘do.

Amandla seems to be loving it, too! “Feels really good,” she captioned. “I feel so aerodynamic now. I’ve achieved ultimate speed.”
