We Can’t Stop Staring at Zendaya’s ‘70s Disco Curls From the 2017 Teen Choice Awards


Natural hair, don’t care! For the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, August 13, in Los Angeles, Choice Summer Movie Actress winner Zendaya, 20, accentuated her menswear-inspired Ashish pajama set with “the perfect play on bouncy curls and shaggy layers,” hairstylist Tym Wallace tells Stylish. Here’s how to get the look:

  1. Rinse strands with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
  2. Once hair is completely air-dry, wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a 1-inch iron. Pro tip: Alternate directions to keep curls bouncy!
  3. Gently comb out coils with a boar bristle brush for added definition.
  4. To prevent frizz and flyaways, spray roots with dry shampoo first, then mist hairspray all over.

The singer announced her journey to return to her curls in January, after years of avoiding them. She posted the below selfie with the caption: “When you’ve spent the past however many years growing your damaged hair back, avoiding heat, wearing wigs and trying every natural product in the world and you finally see a little curl pattern comin back …” 

All we can say is if her eight-month transition phase gives Us any indication of what’s to come, well, we can hardly wait.
