Gina Rodriguez Chopped Off Her Hair and Shaved Sides of Her Head!

OMG! Gina Rodriguez chopped off her long locks and shaved half her head on Monday, May 2. The Jane the Virgin actress debuted her bold, new look via Instagram on Wednesday, May 4.

“Easily 5lbs lighter. And yesterday I shaved my head. Can't wait to show everyone!” she teased on Twitter on Tuesday before revealing the final look on Instagram.
