Let’s admit it. With all the faux bangs, hair extensions, and pixie wigs going around, we’ve become hair cynics when it comes to celebrity hair changes. So when someone like Kate Hudson shaved her entire head of golden-blonde locks into a badass buzzcut, red flags immediately go up. Is the 38-year-old’s hair hiding underneath a super-duper tight wig cap? Is this the work of some hair CGI magician? Well, turns out that Hudson’s buzzcut is the real deal and we’re just as shook as you are.
Fans first caught a glimpse of the actress’s new do on Tuesday as she was shooting a scene for a secret project with Sia. Not much is known about Hudson’s role other than it was juicy enough for her to shave her envy-worthy locks, and that the project also includes Sia’s frequent muse, Maddie Ziegler. Along with the buzzcut, Hudson also seemed to have dyed her hair and eyebrows dark brown, a departure from her natural ashy blonde.
The one-time Oscar nominee isn’t the only star to go sans all hair recently. Since shaving her head in April, Cara Delevingne has been making rounds proving that supers-short hair can be cool and versatile AF. In March, Kristen Stewart also made the jump to a platinum-blonde buzzcut, which has grown out into super-’90s frosted tips.
While we don’t know how long Hudson’s had a shaved head for, her Instagram might give us some clues. Since early July, the actress has been hilariously cutting off the top of her head when taking selfies, making us wonder if she’s been buzzed this entire time and just wasn’t ready to show the world. Be buzzed and be free, Kate.
