Zendaya can do no wrong in any department. The style and beauty icon somehow always manages to raise the bar and push boundaries in both the fashion and beauty world, whether she’s rocking blunt curly bangs that make us swoon or stuns in a bright yellow gown with waist-length wavy hair flowing behind her. There’s never a day that goes by when we aren’t fascinated by her ingenuity, and the chic bob she wore to the 2021 Ballon d’Or ceremony is no exception.
The Virgo debuted the new hairstyle on November 29 and took our breath away. She looked sickening in a black gown with a golden caged back that she noted in an Instagram story was a reference to the Spider-Man villain Doctor Octopus. To accompany the gorgeous black dress, her hair was styled into a bob that sits right at the nape of her neck. While Zendaya is known for making a statement with her beauty looks, she didn’t actually chop off her hair, by the looks of it.
Her medium-length hair was pinned up into a faux bob that you can see from the side. It’s such a simple style but it makes such a large impact, something that we can only expect from the Euphoria star. The faux bob was parted on the side with her hair hanging over part of her forehead, almost like a side bang.
Of course, her makeup looks flawless as well. Her thick brows are groomed to perfection and look lovely with the subtle smoked-out pigments on her eye. The eyes and hair are the focal point so a nude gloss lies on her lips that ties the entire look together.
Where would the fashion and beauty world be without Zendaya? Surely, a much more boring place.
