The way that one tends to their hair is a great form of expression. You can dye it wild colors, switch up the styles often or even cut it all off with a big chop. That is what actress Lupita Nyong’o recently did and she is loving her results!
The Academy Award winning actress posted a video of her transformation process. “It’s time to let you go,” she said in the video speaking to her hair. “It’s sad, it’s oh so sad. You’ve been so good to me, you’ve been so thick! For the first time in my life. I’m gonna miss you. Come back again.” The song Boyz II Men’s single “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday” was included in the post. Although the actress may have been sad to see her sister locs go, her new look came together so beautifully.
Nyong’o isn’t the only celeb who has done the big chop. Here are a few others who have also had some some amazing results.
Celebs Who Have Done The Big Chop
Back in 2017, Keke Wyatt shaved her head in honor of her child. She made the decision to help her child, who had cancer at the time, feel more comfortable about losing his hair. After doing the big cop, she made it her own by dyeing it blonde. The gospel singer announced in November of 2018 that her son was in remission.
Sanaa Lathan is another beauty who shaved her hair all the way off in 2017. At the time she was filming the movie “Nappily Ever After.” In the film Lathan’s character did a big chop to free herself from the stressful life she was living. The actress ended up rocking the short hair for about a year before she began growing back it out.
Tiffany Haddish also made her transition into the big chop world. The actress definitely took a unique approach to showing fans the process. She documented the major change on Instagram Live where she cut off the box braids she was wearing at the time. At first, fans were concerned but it turned out she was fine. Three years later and the star is still rocking the short cut, so it’s safe to say that it wasn’t just a phase for her!
