Although I wouldn’t go so far as to call a bob Zendaya’s signature hairstyle, I think it’s safe to say that a bouncy between-the-chin-and-shoulders look has been her devastatingly chic default for a while now. But when she’s bored of her bob, she’s quick to add lots of length, and I mean lots. Remember when she showed up at the Louis Vuitton menswear show back in June with waist-length water waves? Just imagine how much longer her hair would be if those loose curls were straightened! Actually, you don’t have to.
At yet another Louis Vuitton show — this time womenswear during the current Paris Fashion Week — Zendaya easily stole most of the available attention when she arrived in a floor-length, cream-coloured gown with gold metal and Vachetta leather trim on the shoulders that the fashion house’s handbag straps. And despite the fact that the dress’s full-length zipper was zipped only from waist to upper thigh, what really caught every beauty-obsessed eye was the actor’s hair.
Zendaya’s mocha-brunette hair was middle-parted and styled super-straight, creating what might be the longest we’ve ever seen her wear it. Seriously, just when you think you think you’ve reached its ends, it keeps going essentially past her butt. Stylist Tai Simon did a phenomenal job creating such a sleek-meets-dreamy look.
She was also spotted wearing a less formal look — jeans and a cropped blouse — still sporting the Rapunzel-esque length and smiling at fans and photographers, likely because she knew her hair looked so damn good.
It makes you wonder if she’d ever just grow out her own hair this long instead of sticking to a bob. (It also makes you wonder if she’s contractually obligated to wear extra-long hair to Louis Vuitton events, am I right?) Either way, we’re never not looking forward to seeing how she wears her hair next, regardless of length.
