Jaden Smith is fearless by all counts, but especially when it comes to his fashion and hair choices.

The 18-year-old, who has spent years growing out his locs, recently underwent a major transformation. With the help of his father Will Smith, Jaden said goodbye to his signature coif, and showed off the results on Facebook.

“Getting Jaden Smith ready for the first day of filming #LifeInAYear,” wrote the veteran star. “…Maybe I should’ve used scissors?!”

A set of playful photos show the father-son duo posing before and after the big chop, with Will modeling the cut hair on his own head. The post has since received thousands of likes from fans, including fellow actor Antonio Banderas.

Jaden will show off his new look alongside model Cara Delevingne in Life In A Year, a romantic drama produced by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment. The story follows a teenager who aims to create a lifetime of memories with his girlfriend in–you guessed it, one year–after discovering she’s fatally ill. 

Jaden joins a long list of Black stars who are coveting the big chop in 2017. Last week, Zoe Kravitz unveiled a platinum pixie, while Danai Gurira showed off her bald head for Black Panther at a recent gala. 

And let’s not forget the gorgeous Michaela Coel, who is also sporting a short cut for the upcoming film Been So Long.
