After Kirsten Stewart and Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne is the latest celebrity to have hopped on the shaved head bandwagon. Several days ago, the model posted a picture on Instagram on which she was sporting a pink hairstyle, but those who follow her closely knew there would be more coming on the hair front.
At last month’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the 24-year-old told reporters that she would be shaving her hair off in a short while, in preparation for an upcoming role.

The film follows the story of Daryn – played by Jaden – who discovers his girlfriend is dying The 24-year-old model is cast alongside Jaden Smith for new film Life in a Year.
Cara spoke to USA Today about the seemingly drastic change and revealed the reason behind the pink dye.
“I have to shave my head for my next part, so I have to do something different. So I dyed it. Just for fun. Just to change it up,” the London-born said.
The model’s last movie project was 2016 superhero action Suicide Squad where she played the Enchantress. Although the project grossed over $745 million worldwide – the tenth highest-grossing film of 2016 – it was almost universally panned by critics.
One saving grace was the makeup, for which Suicide Squad won an Oscar in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling category at 89th Academy Awards.
