Busy girls like us constantly have to look polished + pulled together at the office AND have a trick up our sleeves for looking trendy and edgy a short time later — whether to attend an industry event or happy hour. While our go-to has been letting our hair down from an updo to transform our daytime look when it needs some oomph (think: pony to just-kinked hair or braids to pretty-messy waves) Zendaya just made us rethink our mid-day change with her next-level move. The singer donned a wig during the daytime and styled her natural locks for night. Game. Changer.


Zendaya, who’s made a name for herself in the fashion and beauty world thanks to her inclusive attitude and turned-down-for-no-one ensembles, is making us think a wig might be the ultimate PIC for any woman who wants to totally transform her look in a matter of minutes. Recently at Paris Fashion Week, the singer started her day wearing a layered pixie cut that, like her mixed-print ensemble, was cool and edgy. Her vampy, slightly ombre lip was the focus of her face, which was framed nicely by the loosely side-swept bangs she had going on. Then, in what must have been a few “screw-the-short-hair” moments, Zendaya later revealed a completely different head-to-toe look that was just as stunning.


By nighttime, Zendaya had traded in her short wig for thick cornrows, which we imagine were styled first thing in the AM to save time at the switch-up (clever call). To dress up her pulled-back hair, she wore a fun, bright blue dress that gave off modern-day flapper vibes and kept her makeup soft and neutral and not changing too much from the look she stepped out in earlier in the day — the main difference was her neutral-colored lip.

If this two-amazing-looks-in-one-day stunt isn’t enough to get you to consider wearing a wig, we don’t know what will. You can easily achieve rainbow hair status, can change/textures/styles in a blink of an eye, and choose to be your alter ego whenever you want to ;)
