Zendaya Debuts Bob & It's Fabulous (Even If It Might Not Be Real) — PHOTOS
At the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere in Hollywood last night, actress and musician Zendaya showed off a new bob on the red carpet. Since we've known her this year, Zendaya has rocked gorgeous below-the-shoulder locks in many different styles including textured knots, swingy blowouts, and disco curls. It's not a stretch to say that her hair is a large part of her identity and fashion, especially in 2015.
However, we have also seen Zendaya wear wigs ranging from short pixies to Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction. It was about time for a new hairstyle and a new chop seems like the cool new way to go. But, because of Zendaya's love of wigs and playing with style, there is speculation about the reality of her current, erm, hairtuation. As Vogue points out, it seems more likely that the starlet pulled some magical Gigi Hadid voodoo instead of cutting it all.
Does it matter, you ask? Well, considering her penchant for theatrical appearances, this could be a signifier of a new Zendaya. When celebrities make dramatic hair changes, there is usually some motivating force behind it. For example, when I got my a-line bob I had just left someone I'd loved and moved across the country to try to find a job. Therefore, with that logic in mind, I'd say it matters. Real or not, Zendaya pulls off this mature and sleek style with a kiss of pink lip gloss to add some more festive glamour.
The bob was a chic way to go this holiday season, and a lot of celebrities have made the dramatic transition this year. Let's review. . .
First here's Zendaya in all her glimmery splendidness. Can you believe she's only 19?
