Willow Smith Talks Natural Hair In CR Fashion Book

Singer, actress, and dancer Willow Smith has tried out more hairstyles by the age of 14 than most women will in their lives. She shaved her head back in 2012 (leaving her hair-whipping days behind her) and changed up her color at least three times — from neon-green, to yellow, to pink — in the same year. Since then, she's been seen with everything from a mohawk to an asymmetrical bob and blunt bangs. 

Most recently, she's seen looking as fierce as ever showing off her natural TWA in the new issue of CR Fashion Book (on newsstands tomorrow). The youngest Smith family member opens up about one of her goals for 2015, which is to get more in touch with her true self. That includes changing her hair again. “I just want to have dreads. I want to embrace my full self, as natural as I can be,” she told CR Fashion Book. Willow had faux locs back in March, so it'd be exciting to see the style become more of a permanent fixture. 

She also touched on her ever-evolving personal style. “I think my look changes all of the time and right now, it’s a bit more messy, kind of grungy,” she said. We're just going to go out on a limb here and say the grunge look won't be around for very long. After all, she's still in the heyday of her teenage years, and isn't this the time to experiment with your look? If we can count on anything from this style chameleon, it's that she knows how to keep things interesting. Respect.
