"I just love that my head gets to breathe from all the weaves. My hairline was about to go because that stuff ruins your hair."

She woke up feeling fierce one morning and decided to take it all off - and we love it! Boity Thulo made InstaWaves last week when she revealed a super-short, blonde hairdo with a caption that read "Because YOLO!! #shorthairnevercared Woke up today and was like...why the hell not??! Thank you".

We had to ask the beauty what was behind the sudden change: "For the first time, YOLO was made real to me, it made sense," the starlet says of her big chop. "Instead of being afraid, I decided to live for myself," she tells DRUM.

Inspired by singers Chrisette Michele, Solange Knowles and model Eva Marcille, Boity decided to try something new and she's enjoying the freedom: "I enjoy being under the shower now and I just love that my head gets to breathe from all the weaves. My hairline was about to go because that stuff ruins your hair," she laughs.

Feedback has gone both ways, with some people absolutely loving her short do and others not so much. "Some people are struggling with it because it's such a drastic change and other people love it. At the end of the day that doesn't matter because I did it for me," she responds.

It appears her new look is here to stay. She's already excited by the different variations she has to choose from for further experimenting: "I think I have my summer look, actually! I'm really enjoying the short hair," she says.

We're happy to see Boity exploring the many aspects of her beauty. You go, girl!

Have a look at some of Boity's inspiration below - you might have a YOLO moment of your own.
