Zaya Wade’s Half-up Ponytail Will Make You Miss the '90s
The look is so Dion from Clueless.
Much like her stepmom, Gabrielle Union, Zaya Wade is also known to pull looks in the beauty department. Zaya recently showcased her latest half-up hairstyle for her partnership with Tiffany & Co., and we’re obsessed.
A series of photos on Instagram show the muse in a roundup of self-shot photographs to highlight the new brand’s newest collection that celebrates expression through androgyny. Zaya, who is transgender, was the perfect person for the series as a participant and vocal ally for the Black LGBTQ community. Within the minimalist photos, Zaya wears a half-up style, parted neatly down the middle, completed with face-framing tendrils for a nostalgic effect.
Her ponytail also features mega volume with gently curled ends and is a departure for Zaya, who is usually seen with naturally short or slicked-back hair, so this is a dramatic change for her. Being a transgender teen is shamingly still taboo, so it is refreshing to see that her comment section positively responded to her latest update, as those from the LGBT community know how dangerous a place the internet can be.
Zaya’s look is a sheer representation of deciding how you want to present yourself and showing up as such. We’ve included more of the undeniably classic moment below for inspiration.
