She rocked her famous buzz cut in flashback scenes for the newest season.

If you’ve been an avid fan of Stranger Things since the beginning, you’ll remember that Millie Bobby Brown first graced us with her iconic buzz cut in the very first season way back in 2016. Six years later, she walked down the red carpet with her breathtakingly long and golden waves on show, leaving many to wonder how it was possible that she appeared with her famous hairdo in the flashback scenes of Stranger Things season 4.

 

Thanks to an incredibly creative hair department, they were able to mimic the famed buzz without actually cutting Millie’s hair again! In a series of Instagram posts, Stranger Things stylist Sarah Hindsgaul revealed how they recreated the look, which actually took a long time and three artists to finish.

Feeding the fans’ curiosity, Sarah detailed the entire process in her post. It began with the team wrapping Millie's hair firmly so the wig wouldn’t look clunky or odd. 

“The most important is a tight wrap of her own hair so her head shape is as natural as possible with no bulk. For that we wetted her hair down and slicked it with a gel tight to her head, placing her hair in a flattering manner,” she captioned the reel. “Afterwards her head would be wrapped tightly in an elastic material and we would put her under the heat to dry for 15 min.”

Following that, artist Rob Pickens, who also created the other wigs for the show, stitched in silk pieces to make the wrap look like skin to imitate the scalp showing through the hair.

Sarah goes on to say in another Instagram post, "This is by far the hardest wig challenge I have ever been given." Looking at the outcome, though, they still definitely nailed it! After praising her team, she also expressed love for Millie: "Millie my love, thank you the most for always trusting me, you have my heart forever and ever."
