Zendaya’s Twitter Message to Her Hair Haters Is Truly Inspiring

At this point, I feel like Zendaya’s hair needs to have its own Olivia Pope because every time we turn around it’s causing a scandal (see what I did there?!) but the 18-year-old singer seems to not have a problem handling it on her own.


Haters took to Twitter to mock her new short ‘do that, to us, looks like Katy Perry’s recent raven mop top or like Halle Berry’s signature chop circa 2002. Obviously the hater’s are wayyyyy out of touch because every fashionista worth her designer Himalayan Pink salt know that long pixie cuts are seriously having a moment right now. But as per usual our girl Zendaya had the perfect response.

This isn’t the first time Zendaya acted as our self-esteem guru. Earlier this month, basically coined a new catchphrase for promoting and supporting individuality in her totally on-point PSA about real beauty “[snap, snap] you do you, boo boo!”. As always, we can count on Zendaya to respond with grace and wit and to make us feel better about our own beauty choices.

It also reminds us of Gabourey Sidibe’s tweet after she got wind of nasty remarks about her red carpet look at last year’s Golden Globes that was similarly YAS QUEEN-worthy.

These tweets bely a larger issue: how female celebs are dissected and criticized at what seems like every step. Men rarely, if ever, endure this kind of scrutiny for their sartorial risk-taking. Just look at Jared Leto’s Olsen-esque locks from this year’s Oscars or now how dudes are rocking mermaid beards and you’ll notice the reactions aren’t anywhere near as harsh. Why can’t we all applaud ladies for doing something unique, out-of-the-box or original?

So the next time the hater’s get you down, just channel Zendaya and do you, boo boo.
