Zendaya's latest hairstyle inspired by vintage photo of her aunts

From faux locs to a short pixie cut, Zendaya has proven time and again that when it comes to hair, she is quite the chameleon. On Monday, she attended the InStyle Awards 2017 with a multi-colored Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture dress. While the dress was excitedly eye-catching, it was her amazing Afro that really had people talking.

On Instagram, the 21-year-old former Disney star shared that her aunts were the inspiration behind her scene-stealing Afro. “Last nights inspo…my stunning aunties (my daddy’s all the way on the left) and a hint of Angela Davis,” her caption read. In Zendaya’s photo, the two women who really stood out have big beautiful Afros.

This isn’t the first time Zendaya has slayed from head to toe, and you can bet it won’t be the last. Ahead, check out some of her best hair looks and prepare to be absolutely inspired.
