In preparation for her new role Hollywood starlet, Alexandra Shipp, is cutting it close—literally! You may remember her from her role as late recording artist, Aaliyah, in the 2014 film, Aaliyah: Princess of R & B. These days the starlet is gearing up for her upcoming role as supernatural do-gooder, Storm, in the highly anticipated film, X-Men: Apocalypse, set to release in May of next year.

Lately, she's baring it all with a new do. The actress showed up to this year's Comicon rocking a new look: smokey eyes, a bold lip and a scalp-baring cut. This follows an Instagram photo that Shipp posted a few weeks ago of her brother shaving her head. Her brother, James, posted a video of the event during which friends of the actress debuted their coif-cutting skills at a "haircutting party" they hosted to help the actress prepare for her new role.
