Sanaa Lathan is a new woman now! Shortly after debuting her blonde tresses, the actress made a total 360 and chopped all of her hair off. For most fans, the big chop comes as quite a shock because she opted for the drastic cut less than one month after dying her hair blonde. For those who missed Sanaa’s blonde journey, she shared photos and videos of the creative process on Instagram.

Check out some of Sanaa’s latest Instagram posts for the big updates:


The Big Chop:

On yesterday, Sanaa took to Instagram with a jaw-dropping video of her new look. Fans were quite shocked to see Sanaa with a shaved head. The actress debuted her latest look, which captured her rockin’ a new low fade. Of course, it didn’t take long for the photo to go viral. Sanaa has received more than 200,000 likes since she posted the video.

‘Nappily Ever After’:

So, what led Sanaa to make such a drastic change to her look? Since Sanaa is a talented actress, there’s definitely a reason for the decisions. Apparently, Sanaa has undergone so many changes because she’s filming a new movie. Although not many details have been revealed about the upcoming film, there are a few tidbits we can tell you. Sanaa Lathan is reportedly starring in a new Netflix film adaptation of Trisha R. Thomas’ best-selling novel, Nappily Ever After.


Here’s a synopsis of the film:

“A woman named Violet (played by Sanaa Lathan) with a seemingly flawless life — a great job, a handsome boyfriend who’s a doctor, and a meticulously maintained coiffure. But after an accident at the hair salon, each of these things starts to unravel, and Violet begins to realize that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one that she really wanted. She starts to put the pieces back together with a little help from a soulful barber and his young daughter. Violet finds the courage to cast off some of the things that she didn’t really need, starting with the perfectly straightened hair, and find a life that has real meaning.”

Celebrity hairstylist, Larry Sims, has also shared details about the film and Sanaa’s new look. He recently took to Instagram to offer fans a quick peek at what they can expect from the film. “We are creating some black girl hair magic on this film,” he said. “It’s going to be really good, and the message is really amazing. It’s near and dear to my heart, and I know that women around the world will be able to relate to Violet, aka Sanaa Lathan for ‘Nappily Ever After.’”

Based on the changes to her hair, alone, the movie already looks like it’ll be another big success for Sanaa, because she opted to skip the prosthetics route and go all out. Respect! Right now, the release date for Nappily Ever After has yet to be confirmed.
