Forget a basic haircut. Natalie Dormer wanted to go big in the beauty department with her SAG Awards look. And we mean big: the actress shaved half her head!

Ok, this wasn’t just for the award show. She’s gearing up for her role as Cressida in the hotly anticipated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. But judging by her bold attitude (see the video below), she feels very comfortable with her new do — though she admits to having had a few reservations at first.

“I was a little bit nervous [about shaving it], because as women for some weird reason we have a lot of our identity bound up in our hair,” she told PEOPLE. “But just to get rid of it was liberating.”

She kept things edgy, pairing her braided half-shaved style with a striking white Marios Schwab gown, which featured black netted sleeves. And she added even more drama with a major ear cuff that stood out thanks to, well, her lack of hair. 

Watch her show off her look below, and tell us: Do you love her hair?

I love it! Very sexy!

Why does she do that with her mouth? Looking like you just ate a lemon is not cute/attractive/interesting/cool. It’s right up there with “trout pout” – ridiculous.

I love it, she’s actually gorgeous no matter the style she goes for!

She is beautiful! Loved her since The Tudors!

Love her, she can do no wrong!! I too have loved her since The Tudors & she is why I will see these movies, when I haven’t seen the others <3

Guys love chicks with confidence who aren’t pusseys when it comes to style. Yep, she’s hot and so is her hair!

That’s her signature pout – it’s what makes Natalie Dormer, Natalie Dormer. She’s a unique and exotic beauty!

I adored her in The Tudors, and it’s one of the many, many reasons I wish Anne Boleyn had a much longer life. Natalie’s also got great comic timing, great voice (amazing, actually), and is an accomplished fencer.

Jenni – That’s just a Natalie Dormer trait, and not something she’s trying to be. She doesn’t have to resort to that.

This should not be referred to as ‘half’ her head being shaved, it’s only about a third of her hair that is gone…
Kudos to her for being ballsy enough to do this!
