We love Keke Palmer for always taking hair risks and keeping us on our toes, but today while strolling the red carpet at the 9th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood, the actress donned a shaved ‘do and couldn’t feel more relieved.
Palmer admits she originally cut her hair into a pixie cut while performing Cinderalla on Broadway. “I loved the pixie, but I wanted to go one step further with the freedom I felt from cutting off my hair. Being an entertainer we’re forced to [wear our hair in different ways] I just felt so relieved to make a choice to do something that I wanted to do on my own.”
Now, a year later, Palmer isn’t afraid to take the ultimate step: going bald. “Yes!” says the actress. “I can definitely feel that coming on soon.”
We can’t wait!
