Jada Pinkett-Smith defends Willow Smiths eccentric hairstyles, says beauty isn't measured by her hair length


The Smith family has made it very clear that they allow their children to create their own self-identity. Willow Smith is not shy of donning eccentric hairstyles and clothing. It appears that her mother, Jada Pinkett-Smith, is aware of the ridicule she and  her husband Will Smith have been getting from the public about their daughter’s style.

Pinkett-Smith took to her Facebook page to set the record straight about she and Will Smith’s decision to allow Willow to rock her own style. Here’s what she posted:

A letter to a friend…

This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete.

The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women,girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.

More to come. Another day.
