Tiffany Haddish‘s latest haircut was years in the making.

On Tuesday, the actor and comedian took to Instagram with a series of videos in which she’s seen cutting and shaving her hair. In her first clip, Haddish said she’s been talking about shaving her head “for years,” but always faced people who tried to “block” her decision. Now, however, Haddish say she’s no longer concerned with what other people, especially men, have to say about her hair and body.

“I cut all my hair off cause I want to see my scalp,” Haddish wrote in her first Instagram caption. “I know my whole body, I know where every mole is, but I don’t know my scalp. So hello scalp #SheReady to everything.”

After cutting off her dreadlocks in her first video, Haddish came back to Instagram with a second video in which she addressed critics of her new style. She captioned the clip: “For the people that think I lost my mind.”

“Why when a woman decides, ‘Hey im gonna cut this hair off because I wanna see my scalp,’ she gotta have a mental problem?” Haddish said in her second video. “Nothing is wrong with my brain, you guys. I’m not suffering from no emotional s—, nothing. I’ve literally been talking about this for years — how I wanna see my scalp.”

“I know every single part of my body,” she continued. “I know where every single mole is. Anybody that’s ever done my hair has heard me say — what up Oscar, hey boo — anybody that knows me knows I’ve been talking about this for a long time.”

Haddish went on to say that she’s found new joys in having a shaved head, like showering without worrying about getting her hair wet. She also said that removing her “heavy” dreadlocks has stopped her neck from hurting, and that having less hair means she no longer has to spend an “hour to two-three hours” styling: “I’m taking time off!”

“Y’all don’t even understand how I feel really good about it,” Haddish said about her shaved head. “My sister said that I’m gonna cry tomorrow, that I’m gonna be mad about it tomorrow. But I really don’t think I am going to be mad at all. I feel really, really good.”

In a third video, Haddish showed the actual shaving process.

Haddish isn’t the only fan of her new look. Underneath her Instagram videos, numerous celebrities said they also think she looks great.

Viola Davis, for example, said Haddish looks “beautiful” with a shaved head, and Evan Ross said the comedian “looks great.” SZA, on the other hand, wrote: “Damn u pretty as hell.”

While Haddish says she shaved her hair to give herself a new perspective and hassle-free style, many women sometimes cut or shave their hair to revive damaged strands and create new growth, particularly in the natural hair community.

As Allure’s Janell Hickman wrote in 2018, the “big chop” is nothing new. In recent years, more women — including celebrities like Tamar Braxton and Keke Palmer — have cut their hair to start their natural hair journey.

Sometimes the big chop requires women to shave the majority of their hair. In other instances, however, the process is more gradual and can be achieved by first cutting layers and bangs, as Allure notes. 

Representatives for Tiffany Haddish did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
