The back and sides of this formal short do are tapered into the head blending into the top which is layer cut then smoothed down to achieve a sleek look and feel. This hairstyle is timeless and great for most age types. This style can be created with the right products and some skill in finger waving, or a triple barreled curling iron.

Zendaya Coleman shows off her best features with this stylish gelled 'do. This hairstyle is created by finger waving the locks into place or using a triple barreled curling iron, then applying a strong hold gel. Her heart shaped face is framed nicely by this short cut that tapers in towards her ears, showing off her long neck line and dainty ears. Zendaya's bold and exotic looking features are center stage in this look, and her tresses not only look stylish but ultra shiny and glossy as well. This style is ideal for ladies who want a classic look for a formal night out, and who need a way to jazz up their short hairstyle.

Zendaya has a creamy, medium warm complexion and dark eyes with thick eyebrows, making her best suited to hair colors that are close to her natural shade. Here she sticks with an espresso brown tone that matches her eyebrows and warms up her complexion nicely. Her dark brown eyes pop with this hair hue as well.

Zendaya Coleman is an American actress, singer, dancer, and model

Styling Steps

1. Comb Hair


Comb your hair into the desired direction that you require for styling.

2. Part to the Left


Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.

3. Use a Triple Barrel Curling Iron


A triple barrel curling iron is used to apply a defined wave throughout the hair.

4. Use a Triple Barrel Curling Iron to Curl the Side


Starting above your ear and working your way up to your part, take a small to medium section of hair and clamp it between the barrels of your curling iron. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release.

5. Apply Gel


Place a small amount of gel in the palm of your hands and then dispense it evenly throughout the hair. Applying a small amount of gel will create hold, add body and produce a longer lasting effect.

6. Style Bangs to the Right Using Gel


Apply gel to your fingertips then gently rake through your bangs, sweeping the hair to the right as you go.

7. Style Sides Down Using Gel


Using a small amount of gel, work it through the mid-lengths and ends in a downward motion. For added texture, pinch the ends as you go.

8. Apply Lacquer


Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
