There was a stint a couple years ago when wearing cornrows straight back became a trend. Like many other classic nineties’ hairstyles, it reemerged but has since died down. Leave it to Zendaya, the queen of never being afraid to try a new hairstyle to remind us just how good cornrows can look. She wore the style front row at Emanuel Ungaro’s Spring 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week, and naturally, she killed it. See how you can take the look from day to night below.
Go for a preppy, classic look by pairing a baby doll dress with loafers.
