Fans of hood classics like Love & Basketball, The Best Man, and Brown Sugar have been following Sanaa Lathan‘s career for the past two decades. Over the years, the actress hasn’t changed a bit— give or take a little, Lathan has always pretty much identical to the late ’90s version of herself. So, imagine our shock when we came across her’s bald head on Instagram. That’s you, Sanaa?
It turns out, she shaved her head for a movie. Lathan is all set to star in upcoming Netflix film Nappily Ever After, which follows a woman (Violet Jones) who lives a seemingly flawless life until an accident at her hair salon helps her realize she’s not living it to the fullest.
Lathan took to Instagram yesterday to post her new ‘do (or lack thereof) and not surprisingly, she’s just as hot as ever.
“#NappilyEverAfter” she captioned the post, along with a baby emoji which we’re guessing is representative of her shaved head. Lathan follows a long list of beauties who’ve gone bald, including Sidra Smith, Danai Gurira, Erykah Badu, India Arie… and the list goes on. Peep her new look just above.
