Alicia Silverstone’s 9-Year-Old Son Bear Cuts Long Hair, Debuts New Look

Alicia Silverstone’s son, Bear, is known for this long locks (as trolls on social media can attest); however, the young man decided he was ready for a new look. The 9-year-old son of Silverstone and her ex, Christopher Jarecki, chopped off his lengthy hair in a video that his proud mom posted to her Instagram over the weekend.

“What are we doing right now?” Silverstone asks Bear.

“Cutting my hair,” he replies.

“Why?” she asks.

“I have no idea,” he says, smiling.

Bear admits to being “very” nervous in the clip before his hair is put into pigtails and cut off. He ends up having a short, cropped ‘do, transforming his look–but still definitely resembling his mom!

“Yes, it’s true. Bear cut his hair!! My baby’s growing up 😭💔” Silverstone captioned the video. “I miss his hair!!!!! Was it his decision? Yes. Did I cry inside as I watched him get it cut? Maybe… but did I try to stop him? Not for one second.”

The Clueless star made a point of noting that Bear liked having long locks, saying, “The reason he chose to keep it for as long as he did was because he loved it so much!!! He just wanted to try something new. Although I have a feeling he’ll find a way back to his long hair again in the future. No matter what though, I will always support my sweet, caring, and precious little boy in every decision he makes. ❤️”

Back in September, Silverstone posted a photo of Bear with his hair in a messy bun, divulging that her son had been the victim of bullying because of his long tresses while on a bus ride to surf camp.

“After he had returned and told me, I thought he would want to cut it for a haircut appointment we had already scheduled the next day, but when we showed up, he said, ‘Please give me a trim so I can grow it to my waist,'” she related. “That’s my boy! He knows who he is. He loves his hair and chooses to have it long.”

Fans started inquiring about Bear’s hair after Silverstone, a passionate animal rights activist, shared a video last week urging fans to adopt a turkey this Thanksgiving. In the footage, Bear appears with his new short hairdo.
