During the live stream, Haddish grinned broadly as she grabbed a pair of scissors and proceeded to cut off her extensions herself. She then took the scissors to the rest of her mane, and a friend later used a pair of clippers to complete the transformation.
The 40-year-old star explained in the video caption that she decided to cut her hair because she wanted to get a new perspective on a previously hidden part of her body, writing: “I cut all my hair off cause I want to see my Scalp.”
She added: “I know my whole body I know where every mole is but I don’t know my Scalp. So hello Scalp #SheReady to everything.”
In a follow-up clip, the “Girls Trip” actress addressed all the commentators who had expressed concern at her drastic style change, saying: “Nothing is wrong with my brain, you guys. I’m not suffering from no emotional s**t, nothing. I’ve literally been talking about this for years.”
Haddish also revealed her excitement at the prospect of taking a break from maintaining her tresses.
“As a black woman — I don’t know about white women — but as a black woman, that’s a good hour to two-three hours of your f**king day. Even if your hair is braided, you gotta grease your scalp, you gotta tie ’em up at night, you gotta make sure they look neat, it’s a lot of work. So, I’m taking time off!”
