Zendaya put this song her latest hairstyle on replay.

Back in December 2022, the Euphoria star, 26 debuted her short hazel bob on social media. And now, after giving the style a break, the bob is back—but with a unique twist.

This past Tuesday, Zendaya flaunted her elevated hairdo in a newly shared mirror selfie on her Instagram Story. In it, the Dune actress is rocking her new cut bob with a plain white top.

And this time around, Zendaya ditched the honey hazel color for a darker chestnut brown. As for the style, she said goodbye to the dramatic side bang and hello to curly swooped ends. The Emmy award winner captioned the photo, “Needed a little refresh.”


Zendaya’s newest haircut debut comes alongside the actress’s September cover interview with Elle. While talking to the magazine, the Challengers star opened up about why she wants to keep her relationship with Spider-Man co-star, Tom Holland, so private from the media.

“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public,” she told the outlet. “I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love.”

The actress continued, “But also, I do have control over what I choose to share. It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”

Rumors about their relationship have been circulating the internet for quite some time. The pair were captured on camera kissing and pics were published by Page Six in July 2021. Since then, they have kept their relationship out of the public eye, rarely posting pictures of one another on social media.

This new hairstyle looks so good on you, Zendaya.
