Zendaya has been known for her signature curls as she revealed how she got comfortable with her natural hair. And, as the 19-year-old star's mane is being iconic, she was chosen as one of the cover stars of Kode magazine focusing more on her locks.
"Growing up, I wasn't very confident in my curls," the American actress told PeopleStyle. "My mom is white and my dad is black - they have two very different hair types. So we learned how to manage my hair together, and I also watched YouTube videos to find easy styles to do."
The singer also shared that generally, people didn't like what they already had and so she is. "I wanted different hair than what I had. And it wasn't until I got older that I learned you don't know what you've got until it's gone."
Learning to love herself made her accept what she really is and she, then, got comfortable with what she have. "As you grow up, or as you grow older, you have to learn about yourself and you have to become more familiar with yourself," she advised.
Meanwhile, the dancer also got famous for experimenting with hair with different styles as she started her year with a bold new look for Kode, Hollywood Life reported. She was photographed in a head-to-toe black dress by Stella McCartney, a blonde pixie wig makeover by Kim Kimble and a major smoky eye made by Allan Avendano.
Furthermore, the "Replay" hitmaker appeared alongside other stars, like Kat Graham, Serayah, Kiersey Clemons, Yara Shahidi and Aja Naomi King for the spread's #GenerationNoir issue. It featured solo covers and interviews in celebration of Luther King Day and black history month, which will be out this January.
