Well, it happened: Scarlett cut her hair. And not just a trim. She turned it up to ELEVEN. It was driven by Clare Bowen’s desire to reach out to kids with cancer — she herself had it as young as age four — who, as she did, feel self-conscious or anxious about losing their hair; she said she did it to prove to them that hair is not “what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero.” What a lovely and big-hearted thing to do. I personally fall into the trap all the time of attaching too much vanity to what my hair is doing, or isn’t doing. Thank you, Clare, for the reminder that what really counts isn’t coming out of our follicles.

Her Instagram has a better shot than I got from the episode:
