With a lovely new selfie, Jada Pinkett Smith is honouring “Bald Is Beautiful” Day. Pinkett Smith posted a photo of herself on Instagram in recognition of the day that celebrates people who are hairless.
The 50-year-old actress, who opened up about her difficulties with hair loss in 2018, tweeted beside the image, “Happy Bald is Beautiful day to all my brothers and sisters with no hair.
In the photo, Pinkett Smith was dolled up and sporting a bright red lip. Although her entire attire was hidden, she appeared to be wearing a high-neck, gold satin top.
She also released excerpts from an episode of Red Table Talk that focused on bald beauty as part of the “Bald Is Beautiful” celebration on Instagram. Along with ladies from her “bald boss movement,” Yvonne Orji, Sidra Smith, and other celebrities who have come on the show to discuss their relationships with their hair and rock shorter, and occasionally bald, hairstyles were also included in the video.
The show’s official Instagram account captioned the photo, “Bald is beautiful EVERY day, but we’re not mad about showing off a little extra today! Where’s all our bald baddies at?! #baldisbeautifulday.”
The article was published six months after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face for making a joke at the Oscars about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.
Pinkett Smith addressed the Oscars event in a Red Table Talk episode about alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss and bald spots, in June. Pinkett Smith has been vocal about her difficulties with alopecia.
I’m using this opportunity to give our alopecia family an opportunity to talk about what it’s like to have this condition and to educate people about what alopecia actually is. “Considering what I’ve been through with my own health and what happened at the Oscars, thousands have reached out to me with their stories,” Pinkett Smith said at the beginning of the June 1 episode.
Now that we’re talking about Oscar night, she continued, “my deepest wish is that these two smart, talented guys will have the chance to heal, speak this out, and reconcile. In the meantime, Will and I will keep doing what we have been doing for the past 28 years, which is to keep figuring this thing called life together. “The situation of the world today, we need them both. And we actually need one another more than ever.”
