Willow Smith gets a buzzcut on stage while performing ‘Whip My Hair’

TextSofia Mahirova

‘I’m always shaving my head at monumental times in my life,’ she said

Last month, all the celebrities seemed to be cutting their hair off. Joining Rihanna, Iris Law, and Ariana Grande in making the chop is Willow Smith, who was given a buzzcut while performing a version of “Whip My Hair”, continuing to shred on her electric guitar while she did so.

During the pop-punk rendition of the song as part of a Facebook live show, a leather jacket-clad woman walked out on stage brandishing clippers to strip off Willow’s locks.

In a behind-the-scenes interview, Smith said: “I’m always shaving my head at monumental times in my life when things are really changing, and this is definitely one of those moments.”

The 20-year-old released album lately I feel EVERYTHING last week (July 16), which featured collaborations with Avril Lavigne and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

The head-shaving isn’t the only beauty ritual Smith has had done in a live setting recently, having steamed her vagina live on camera with her mother (as you do).

Watch Willow whip her hair – and lose her hair – below. And if you’re considering the look yourself, read Dazed’s guide to the perfect DIY buzzcut here.
