Pour one out for Jason Momoa‘s long, flowing hair. The actor just said goodbye to his signature long, beachy lengths and man bun styles by buzzing his hair on camera and sending a message about single-use plastics.
Momoa posted a video of his major hair change to Instagram, even taking a moment to show off two shorn braids that had already been cut off. (RIP, beautiful long hair!) “[I’m] shaving off the hair, doing it for single-use plastics,” the actor shares of the process. At one point in the video, he even winces feeling the wind on his now-buzzed skin.
According to Momoa, the hair change was in part to bring more awareness to the prevalence of single-use plastics. “It goes into our land, into our oceans. Please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your lives …” Momoa also mentions using a canteen or aluminum bottle in place of plastic; he’s the founder of Mananalu Water, a bottled water line packaged in aluminum with a mission to “unplastic our planet.”
