In following with my feature of youth with natural hair for December, this week's feature is Willow Smith. Yes, Ms. "Whip My Hair Back And Forth" Herself! Willow Smith is the youngest child of Will & Jada Smith. Often seen at red carpet events with her parents and older brother Jaden, her prepubescent years have been trademarked by two things: her unique sense of style, and her entry into the music arena. At just 11 years old, she has already played a role in I AM Legend and released 3 singles from an upcoming album. Her single, "Whip My Hair" went platinum. Even though this song would be considered what I call a "teeny-bopper" song, whenever I hear it I crank it up and whip my own hair (if it's loose). Word on the street is that her next single "Fireball" will have a Nicki Minaj feature. Can you imagine the hairstyles that will be showcased in that video?
One of the things that highlights Willow's style is her hair. Her parents drew a little side eyed criticism when they allowed her to shave on side of her head a few years ago. Willow however (and I'm sure her team of stylists) have used this style to create a number of funky, fresh, edgy natural hair dos. Check out the pics below.
As Willow says "All my ladies if you feel me, come on, do it, do it, whip your hair, don't matter if it's long short, do it, do it, whip your hair (your hair, your hair)!!!!!
Side note: I love the little baby in this video!
