Willow Smith said that she did her own hair at a “high fashion photo shoot” because the hairstylist didn’t know how to work with Black hair.

“All of the white models were getting their hair done and they all had somebody,” Smith recalled during the latest episode of “Red Table Talk” on Facebook Watch, released on Wednesday.

She continued: “The person that was supposed to do my hair came, looked at it, and tried to do something to it, tried to touch it. I could tell they were extremely perturbed. I could tell that they were just like, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing.'”

The 20-year-old star said that the hairstylist’s reaction motivated her to take matters into her own hands.

“That anxiety, looking at them in the mirror not knowing what to do with my head, made me feel like, ‘I’m gonna take the reins on this,'” Smith said. “I basically did my own hair for that really high fashion shoot. That should never be happening.”

The “Transparent Soul” singer said that this wasn’t the only time she encountered a person who was inexperienced regarding how to style Black hair.

“Even at another high fashion shoot for a completely different thing, I was in the room and they straight-up said, ‘Is her hair just a little too difficult to do that specific thing?'” Smith said.
