*Like mother like daughter…

Jada Pinkett Smith took a page from her 12-year-old daughter Willow and adopted one of her many hairstyles.

The actress touched down at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Monday Oct. 7 with a new haircut. After sporting long tresses (and occasionally braids) for years, the actress, 42, debuted a ‘do that is completely shaved on the sides with short hair at the top.

Will Smith’s wife of 16 years completed the look with skinny jeans, buckled boots, denim shirt, a flannel tied around her waist, a blazer, and sunglasses.

Celebrating her 42nd birthday last month (on Sept. 18), Jada made a surprising revelation to her fans via Facebook: A past struggle with addictions.
“I had many addictions, of several kinds, to deal with my life issues, but today, at 42, I have my wisdom, my heart and my conscience as the only tools to overcome life’s inevitable obstacles. I have become a good problem solver with those tools, and I am damn proud,” she wrote, without delving in to further detail about the struggles.
