    "Application for the Dora Milaje submitted!"

    Lupita Nyong'o returned to Instagram today with a major life update: She's gone bald!

    The Black Panther star showed off her newly shaven head in an Instagram post, writing how "Happy without hair" she is in the caption.

    Lupita also mused that she's now eligible to join the Dora Milaje, referring to the team of Wakandan warriors from Black Panther, who — as you might know — are known for having shaved heads.

    Her new look comes about a month after Lupita first chopped her hair down to a shorter do.

    The actor, who had sisterlocks at the time, said on TikTok that she felt it was "just time" for a change before pulling out a pair of scissors and going to work on her hair.
