Jada Pinkett-Smith stands up for daughter
The Smith family - Will, Jada, Willow and Jaden - are booming with talent. However, the family has come under some scrutiny as of late in regard to the fashion of their daughter. BET reports many critics have come out of the woodwork to reprimand Will and Jada for allowing Willow to shave her head and dye her hair different colors.
Jada set out immediately to protect her child and declare why she allowed Willow to express herself via her hair.
"The question why I 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," Jada wrote on her Facebook page. "Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair..."
The Huffington Post reports Will has also spoken out in support of his family's choice to let Willow cut her hair.
"We let Willow cut her hair..." Will told the publication. "If I teach her that I'm in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she's going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world."
Do you think Willow's haircut deserves such criticism? Would you let your daughter try out new hair trends or women's urban clothing trends?
