Top 20 Nollywood Actresses Who Shaved Their Hair for Movie Roles

Nollywood Actresses Who Shaved Their Hair for Movie Roles

Celebrities are famous for enhancing their beauty with high-end products and accessories. In Nollywood, we see our celebrities don expensive wigs and weave for beauty purposes. While this makes them beautiful and attractive, some maintain natural hair but still bear the same beauty standards.

Below we look at some famous Nollywood actresses who shaved their hair for movie roles but maintained their beauty.

Nollywood Actresses Who Shaved Their Hair

  • Annie Idibia
  • Ebube Nwagbo
  • Toyin Abraham
  • Rachael Okonkwo
  • Mercy Johnson
  • Chika Ike
  • Oge Okoye
  • Fathia Balogun
  • Chinyere Wilfred
  • Bimbo Akintola

We cannot begin this list without the mention of the ever beautiful Mercy Johnson. In 2011 she starred as a widow in the movie “Heart of a Widow.” In the movies, she is accused of murdering her husband.

Her problems continued to pile up as elders demanded that she shave her hair to mark her status as a “husband killer” and an outcast. She acts the episode well, and that episode reveals her other side as a natural beauty despite her troubles.

#1. Annie Idibia

This beautiful actress makes our first name in our list of Nollywood actresses who shaved their hair for movie roles. Unlike other Nollywood actresses and actors who went bald to honor their role in films, Idibia did it for another reason. The beautiful wife of award-winning Nigerian Singer and Songwriter 2face Idibia went bald in her campaign against breast cancer. Her message was to help victims Fight the Odds and promote self-examination amongst the masses. While the new look came as a shock to most of her followers, she still had the same natural beauty even in baldness.

#2. Ebube Nwagbo

Rumor has it that the one role that Ebube acted with a clean shave played a significant role in her becoming the star she is today. She properly gained her place among our  Nollywood actresses who shaved their hair for movie roles. She makes it on our list of Nollywood celebrities who once went bald for her role in the Widows Cult. In the 2017 movie, women kill their husbands and join the widows’ cult for fame, freedom, and money. The 35-year-old played this role so well that it marked one of her most significant moments on our screens.

#3. Toyin Abraham

Toyin is one Nollywood celebrity who does not shy away from going bald. She went bald on two occasions for movie roles when acting in 2017 and 2018. The Ghost and The Tout actress first went clean shave for her role in Ana Mi, and in 2018, she shared a video of her getting a second screen shave. On the Instagram video, she added a caption, “See they said I have to cut my hair on set, I got here now they are cutting my hair. I am cutting my hair again,”

#4. Rachael Okonkwo

Who can ever forget the beautiful yet notorious bald trio in the Nollywood movie, Iga Alikeya?? In this film, Rachael acts as a bad girl alongside Nazo Ekezie, Iheme Nancy, and other ladies. The ladies had to shave their hair to enhance their gangster, terrorizing status. It is worth noting that the clean shave did not interfere with their beauty in any way; Rachael maintained her glowing eye and cute smile except “when terrorizing the village and giving Nigerian police hard time” in the film.
