Did Ashley Benson Shave Her Head? The Actress Could Be Playing Tricks On Us — PHOTO

Another day, another major celebrity hair transformation, but this latest one has got to be the most shocking of all. While performing my daily social media catch up today, I came across a rather alarming photo that had me wondering — did Ashley Benson shave her head? The actress' recent Instagram photo is super mysterious, leading to lots of questions from her fans.

The 26-year-old took to Instagram on Wednesday with a cryptic photo of herself, and it was hard to miss just how different she looked. The selfie revealed Benson with super cropped locks, suggesting that she may have shaved off all of her hair. The look was jaw-dropping, to say the least. I practically had to do a double take to make sure that was really her. So what's the deal here? Did the actress actually decide to up and buzz her head one day? My guess is no, but let's further examine the clues.

The photo is captioned "#exmachina vibes," which leads me to believe that the transformation is a requirement for a new movie role. Perhaps a sequel to the mega-film Ex Machina that ruled box offices last year? Given that director Alex Garland told Deadline that he's not necessarily planning a follow-up film, it's probably just a reference to what Alicia Vikander's character looked like in costume. However, it could be for another role! The photo makes it look like she is sitting in hair and makeup on set, specifically because of the pair of hands holding what appears to be another hair piece behind her.

Take a look at the strange image.

See what I mean? This faux baldness is totally for an upcoming film. Perhaps it's just preparation for a wig?

Benson posted this photo of her fluffy blonde bun just a day ago. I highly doubt she decided to chop it all off that quickly.

She looks way different with long blonde hair, don't you think?

The actress has definitely played with different lengths, but she has never gone as far as shaving it all off.

Fingers crossed she is playing a trick on us, because her long blonde locks are just way too pretty to get rid off.
