Zendaya Slays Three Decades Worth Of Hair History

Slay Zendaya, slay.

It's apparent that this once Disney star has grown up and blossomed into a true beauty. From proving society wrong about her personal hair choices to having Mattel create a Barbie doll to commemorate just how gorgeous she truly is, to now recreating looks of some of our favorite celebrities throughout the decades. It's safe to say that she is a true renaissance woman and risk taker. She doesn't mind taking it "there" when it comes to fashion and that's what we happen to love about her.
Mane Addicts has made Zendaya the new face of their site and she is breaking the internet by channeling everyone from Diana Ross to Grace Jones amazing tresses over the years. If you don't think it can be done, think again because she destroyed every single look -- and I mean that in a good way. Like I said, this 19-year old trendsetter can absolutely do no wrong. Take a look at the images below and see just how amazing her recreations throughout the decades happen to be.

The 1960's: Cher/Janis Joplin

"'Zendaya is fearless. She's a creator's dream. Inspired by Cher, we wanted to create the bone straight, parted down the middle, chic vibe," Sims says. "It could be described as a modern day Janis Joplin. We kind of did a version of this at the AMA's a few years back when she wore an all-white ensemble, but we haven't revisited it for quite a few years.'"

The 1970's: Diana Ross

"'While taking cues from Ross's legendary natural curls, Sims also "​was inspired by shapes and texture. I wanted to do a twist on what an afro looks like…[and Zendaya] is a perfect canvas. She allows you to just go for it and when you think you've gone too far, she pushed you to go further. In this business it's hard to stay inspired. I just feel so lucky to have such a creative muse who trusts my vision. I didn't use any products except some shine spray and I cut the hair with clippers.'"

The 1980's: Brooke Shields

"'We used two wigs," admits Sims. "I cut into them both a bit to shape, then secured them with pins. I used color spray in Zendaya's hair to blend them with the wigs. We teased it with the height and just went there! Threw a little wind on it and it was good to go!''"

The 1990's: Grace Jones

"'This last look was all about Grace Jones. It was an old style, a high top fade," explains Sims. "It was an homage to the era Zendaya grew up in. She's so in tune with what's new, what's fashion, but the high top fade is so left from what she's done before.'"

Can we just take a second to bask in her beauty?

This was simply amazing.

Yeaaahhhh, She kilt it! Zendaya is an amazing beautiful young woman. She is a very great role model for kids heck even some adults could take a lot of lessons from her. lol. I even liked her in Shake it up and I watch K.C. Undercover with my girls. 😁 She should be the next Wonder Woman!
yes, I think she is absolutely amazing and admirable. I definitely agree that she makes for a great role model. I'm 25 years old and I look up to her, so that definitely says a lot :) @KaraHevner
