Like mother Jada
Willow Smith is now bald too
Just last week, Jada Pinkett Smith made public that she had shed her hair for health reasons. Now her daughter Willow is doing the same. The 20-year-old musician has a friend shave her skull live on stage.
Willow Smith presented new music – and with an impressive performance: the singer shaved off her hair on a stage. The 20 year old released her new album “Lately I Feel Everything”. At the same time there was a concert with her on “Facebook Watch”. She ended that with a new punk rock version of the song that made her famous in 2010: “Whip My Hair”.
Towards the end of their performance, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter sat on a chair – and had a woman shave her hair while she continued to play the guitar. In an interview at the concert, she said about the action, according to media reports: “This will be the third time in my life that I shave my head. I always shave my head at monumental times in my life when things really change and this is definitely one of those moments. “
“Time to let go”
Willow Smith recently inspired her mom to part with her hair as well. Jada Pinkett Smith posted a shaved head picture on Instagram showing her next to her daughter. “Willow made me do it because it was time to let go,” she wrote. The actress, who will celebrate her 50th birthday in September, also said that her 50s will be a joy with this bald head.
Actor Will Smith’s wife spoke about her hair loss on her Facebook talk show “Red Table Talk” in 2018. It was scary the first time she fell out in clumps of hair. At the time she said, “It was one of those moments in my life when I literally shivered with fear.” In recent years she has therefore mostly shown herself with short hair or a turban. The reason for her hair loss has not yet been established.
