Hollywood actor Will Smith’s Jada Pinkett Smith recently flaunted her new pink hairstyle as she rang in her 52nd birthday Monday. The “Girls Trip” actress who has been open about her battle with alopecia, had some fun experimenting with color as she likened her new style to a fruit dessert.
“This ain’t noth’n but a birthday sherbet surprise within a Virgo sunrise✨,” the mom of two captioned her glowing selfie on Instagram.
The snap showed the “Bad Moms” actress staring into the camera with a soft smile as she showed off her fresh manicure that appeared to be a similar shade to her hair. It wasn’t long before fans and celebs alike rushed to the comments section to compliment the star on her new ‘do.
DJ Jazzy Jeff, the former collaborator of Pinkett Smith’s husband Will Smith commented, “Happy Birthday My Sister!!!!”
Meanwhile, Lauren London added, “Hbd sis.”

The faux pas became a headline-grabbing event as Rock made a playful jibe that Pinkett Smith was ready to star in “G.I. Jane 2” thanks to her closed-shaved look. Moments after, her husband Will stormed on stage and slapped the comedian, yelling, “Leave my wife’s name out of your f–king mouth.”
Prior to the dramatic outburst, the “Red Table Talk” host had been open about her hair loss, revealing her diagnosis with the autoimmune disorder in 2018.
“I’ve been having issues with hair loss,” she said on her show at the time. “It was terrifying when it first started. I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands and I was just like, ‘Oh my God, am I going bald?’”
“It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking in fear,” she added.
