Best Celebrity Haircuts: From Short to Long
Best Sticking-With-What-Works Haircut: The 46-year-old actress sported long hair until she was about 18 or 19, she told the Huffington Post in May 2012, but decided to chop it off after she realized that every other actress had long hair. Two weeks after that in 1989, she landed her first role in the TV show Living Dolls. "Growing up as a black woman, I felt that if I didn’t have long hair, I wasn’t going to be beautiful.... Cutting my hair was freeing," the Oscar winner said.
