“Shaving My Head Is The Most Radical Thing I’ve Done.”


The daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith recently covered the front page of Glamour’s UK digital Issue with a buzzed pixie cut, and we’re absolutely here for it.

If there’s one thing a pixie cut brings, it would have to be the freedom to do whatever we want to do without restrictions and limitations, which we are absolutely living for.

After seeing Willow strike the front page of Glamour with a buzzed pixie, we have officially become a “Willow Smith Stan Account,” and for good reason.

“Shaving my head is maybe the most radical thing I’ve done in the name of beauty.”

Willow got real with Glamour on Instagram about taking her power back from limiting beliefs that often tell women, especially Black women, that long hair is the beauty standard to aspire for.

It’s safe to say that many of us remember Willow’s “Whip My Hair” days like it was yesterday. And ever since, the 21-year-old star has rightfully gone off to create her own path within the acting and music realm.

And though her rebel days are still among us, Willow recently revealed to Glamour that she admits she was more fearless back when she was younger.

“Yikes. I mean, I was definitely fearless back in the day!” she says to Glamour. “I think a little bit more about things before I do them now, which is a good thing. I feel like I’m forever evolving and trying to find the most authentic version of myself. I think that’s a lifelong thing.”

She Admits That It’s All Been A Learning Curve For Her

For centuries, Black women have always had a strong connection to their hair, as it’s been one of the many ways we can express ourselves and our identities. Willow recently revealed that her hair and skin journey has been a learning curve for her and that she’s still learning how to embrace her natural beauty.

“As a Black woman there were a lot of layers to my relationship with my hair and skin growing up; it was definitely a learning curve,” she says to Glamour.
