Taraji P. Henson. Told the magazine she had no plans of doing the photoshoot with her natural hair but when she was trying on the clothes the scarf she had on her head slipped off and exposed the neat braids she had underneath, and photographer Bruce Weber asked her to keep it that way for the shoot.

"And part of me was like, No, no, no, NO! This is the hair no one is supposed to see. This is like behind-closed doors hair. I feel naked." says Taraji

The actress said she was unsure at first, but Bruce convinced her to do it.

"As women we put sooooo much emphasis on our hair!!! As if hair defines beauty?! I am always so grateful for women who are FREE AND BOLD enough to cut it ALL off," she posted on Instagram.
