Local Actress Mo Setumo Has Shaved Off Her Hair

Because a fresh new look is always a good idea.

Over the last few years, Mo Setumo has become one of local TV’s hottest stars, starring in shows like Mzansi Magic’s The Queen and Generations: The Legacy. She hasn’t always had it easy, and suffered bullying as a child as well as suffering from bouts of depression and self-esteem issues. It’s these struggles combined with her stellar acting that make her not just a celeb, but a relatable one. Gotta love those.

And while we might be used to seeing Mo sporting long, luscious locks (and cute blunt bobs), she has recently undergone a makeover of note, and we were shook when a certain image popped up on our Insta feed. Her hair…is gone. Poof!

Mo Setumo Has Gone ‘Under the Razor’

Yesterday Mo took to social media to share her casual, off duty couch-time look with her followers, and the response has been huge. In fact, the picture (or, as we like to call it, the ‘big reveal’) has gotten over 18k likes and shows her with a shaved head, which is both edgy and trendy. Here she is in all her bald-headed glory:

We think that this new look is *beyond* gorg and, while we’re sure she’ll still be sporting some killer wigs on the regular, this makes for such a great alternative when she wants to go weave-free.

While we’re not sure if the chop was meant to signify anything, we’ve only just entered February, so the whole ‘new year, new me’ thing is still totally applicable. And we ALL need is a fresh start  – or at least a fresh ‘do  – from time to time so this makeover is something that we can totally get behind. In fact, we might have to invest in an electric razor and evaluate our style and hair choices immediately.
