But it should come as no surprise that Millie Bobby Brown, the awesome actress who plays her, hasn't always had a buzzcut.

In fact, this is what she looked like when she first met Lucas, aka actor Caleb McLaughlin, on their first day on set.

She agreed to have her long hair shaved off when she got the part.

Millie previously told Vulture:

I had very long hair and I cut it all off for the part. I read the script and I was so happy with my character and I thought, This is how it's gotta be. My mom and my grandpa were like, 'No, you can't do that.' It took me 12 years β€” well, 11 years β€” to grow something. [My hair] wasn't thick, but it was long. And then they shaved it all off and it was very hard for my parents. But I convinced them. I was like, 'Dude, it grows back. It's fine.'

And now she's shared the video of the moment she completely changed her look.

Here it is!! The video of me getting my hair shaved for #StrangerThings. Enjoy!πŸ˜˜πŸ’™ #buzzed

Awwww.

And her changing emotions throughout.

As you can see, she was pretty apprehensive when they cut the final long strand.

And at first, it took some getting used to.

But then she transformed into Eleven, just like that.

Thank you for sharing the video, Millie!
