Roc Nation protege Willow Smith is showing off a new bald look in 2012 and will not be whipping her hair back and forth as seen in a slew of recently released photos.

Images of Willow's new hairstyle hit the Internet early Friday (January 3).

It's the end of an era, tweens and tween-adjacents. After 464 glorious days of hair whipping, Will Smith's singing, dancing daughter Willow posted a pic on her WhoSay account showing a newly shorn head. Known for out-there style choices, the "21st Century Girl" must have felt that long locks were so last year -- either that or she got a little too close to a "Fireball." All in all, it was a good run -- when Miss Piggy is mussing her golden coiffure in tribute, you know you've succeeded. Let us pause and take a moment to remember the paint-splattering, hair-whipping good times (video below, obviously). (Entertainment Weekly)

Just last month, the singer was rocking a Nicki Minaj-inspired wig.

Which singer was seen channeling Nicki Minaj in one of the rap diva's pink and blonde wigs? It's Willow Smith! The 11-year-old pop star tweeted a photo of herself wearing a wig from the Harajuku Barbie herself. "Thank you @nikkiminaj you're amazing!!!" tweeted Willow, who worked with Nicki on her latest single "Fireball." Willow's debut album Knees and Elbows is due April 3. (Rap-Up)

Coincidentally, bald beauty Amber Rose was recently spotted showing off long hair over the winter.

What a way to go undercover! Amber Rose was spotted rocking out to the tunes of her boo Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg this past weekend at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. She was almost unrecognizable as she stood at the side of the stage rocking a white blazer, wolford tights and a long dark wig. Meanwhile, Wiz and Snoop tore it down, performing some of their latest collabos off of their new soundtrack, 'Mac & Devin Go To High School' from their upcoming movie with the same name.

In December, Willow and Minaj's "Fireball" music video officially premiered.

Directed by Roman Lee, "Fireball" is a simplistic take on Smith's sassy and youthful energy. It begins with a shot of a deserted sidewalk and cuts to a scene of the 11-year-old singer in front of blazing flames in an elaborately decked out ensemble, including a headpiece. As dancers perform a choreographed routine, Smith is seen strutting down the street with everlasting swag and attitude. It's not long before Young Willow also shows her dancing skills when she joins in on the extravaganza, throwing in a few hair whips here and there. Minaj visits the street takeover soon after in an over-the-top dress made of fluorescent-colored teddy bears and matching fur boots. While streetlights glimmer on the wet pavement, the Young Money diva dances beside the singer as she spits her guest verse. (MTV)
