For a 19-Year-Old, Jaden Smith Has Certainly Had a Lot of Interesting Hairstyles

The Fashion Awards 2016 - Red Carpet Arrivals

Jaden Smith practically grew up on the red carpet. The actor and singer, as well as sister Willow Smith, has evolved over the years of premieres and events alongside his famous parents into a unique and eccentric style all his own—especially when it comes to his hair. From voluminous, brushed-out curls to blond frosted tips, the Karate Kid is always changing his style wherever he is, whether it’s sitting front row at a Louis Vuitton show or infamously carrying his own hair at the Met Gala. In honor of Jaden’s 19th birthday, we take a look back at his best hair moments on the red carpet.
