Joey King Shaves Her Head October 2018

Joey King Shaved Her Head, and She Thinks Every Woman Should Do It "at Least Once"

Joey King said goodbye to her hair, but parting is not sweet sorrow for the 19-year-old actress. Her new buzz cut comes in preparation for an upcoming role as Gypsy Rose Blanchard in Hulu's The Act, and King told Allure she had no fear about the change.

"I've never really had an attachment to my hair. I couldn't care less what happens to it," King said. "No part of me was nervous or was second-guessing it. So many people would ask me, 'Are you really scared?' or 'Are you nervous?' or say, 'You're so brave.' And I'd go, 'I'm not brave, I'm just cutting my hair off.'"

It's possible that King's comfort with her badass buzzed look comes from the fact that she's shaved her head before, once for a role in The Dark Knight Rises and then again for Wish I Was Here. She sees this third time around as an opportunity to experiment with makeup looks because she has "so many different options" without hair.

"I know this sounds crazy, and not a lot of people will agree with me, but I think every woman should shave her head at least once in her life," she shared. "It's not like they're going to regret it 10 years down the line when their hair is long again. It's something that's very freeing, really fun, and really empowering."
