Willow Smith Debuts Blunt Bangs; Looks Sharp, Sleek, & Grown Up

willow-smith
Willow Smith is a total hair chameleon, and last night, the 12-year-old debuted a long, black bob and a set of blunt bangs at the premiere of After Earth. Experimenting with her hair is kind of her go-to move, and she's always done so with aplomb (and the inspiring support of her awesome mother).
Smith was on hand to support her pop Will and brother Jaden's new movie, but our eyes were on her new 'do. The shoulder-length hairstyle frames her face nicely, the blunt bangs hit at the right spot just above her eyebrows, and the entire look is just so sleek and chic, which is a surprising change from her more typical punk looks. We likey.
Smith has sported a slew of eye-opening hairstyles in the past (who can forget her shaved-head moment?), and this more understated look is a departure from all of them. That's not to say it doesn't look great, though; it's like the girl just hopped out of bed and turned her swag on.
