This Actress Just Cut off All Her Hair For The Best Reason Possible

Bowen reminds us all that 'it's your insides that count.'

  1. 1

    Clare Bowen plays Scarlett O'Conner on the ABC hit TV Show Nashville

    She sings, she writes music, and she has long, flowing hair. She's a true Southern Beauty.

    But today Bowen released a provocative picture of a new hair do, and a gut wrenching story to go with it

    As always, Bowen looks stunning.

    "I was really inspired", Bowen writes on her Facebook page, "when I heard a story about a little girl who said she couldn't be a princess because she didn't have long hair, and I wanted her, and others like her to know that's not what makes a princess, or a warrior, or a superhero. It's not what makes you beautiful either. It's your insides that count… even if you happen to be missing half of them."

    Bowen had end stage nephroblastoma as a child, but made a full recovery, so this was particularly relevant to her.

    "Every scar tells a story, every baldhead, every dark circle, every prosthetic limb, and every reflection in a mirror that you might not recognize anymore. Look deeper than skin, hair, nails, and lips." She wrote.

    "You are who you are in your bones."

  6. 6

    "That is where you have the potential to shine the brightest from. It is where your true beautiful self lives."

  7. 7

    "If it makes even one person think twice about judging another, then in some small way, the world is better."

  8. 8

    "Self esteem takes longer to grow back than hair."

    Preach it girl.

    Clare, from all of us here at PlayBuzz, you look FANTASTIC and THANK YOU for being AWESOME.
