Trying to pick a favorite Zendaya hairstyle is like trying to pick the tastiest flavor from Crumbl Cookies: we can’t, and we won’t. We’ve seen the mononymous star wear everything like flowing locs, a lob (and then a faux bob), copper-red hair, and even a curly shag. Let’s not even mention Zendaya’s natural hair. The star has definitely earned the title of ultimate beauty chameleon alongside her long list of accolades. Still, we can say with confidence there’s a particular hairstyle that makes us swoon every time, and that’s Zendaya‘s braids.

When it comes to this protective style, the actor doesn’t play favorites. Box braids, cornrow styles, micro braids, goddess braids, braided ponytails – you name it, she’s tried it. She’s dressed up her braids for movie premiere red carpets and down for events like Beautycon and just a regular stroll down the street, (more on those ahead), and it all just proves that braids are as versatile as they are stylish. There is one thing that is clear from Zendaya‘s braids: she clearly favors length. Some of her braided hairstyles extend all the way down to her midthigh, which is no easy feat for the 5’10” actor.

While we’re on the topic of difficult tasks, we sorted through all of Zendaya‘s past beauty looks – and there are a lot of them – to pull out the top braided hairstyles she’s ever worn over the years. Scroll through for the best of Zendaya’s braids, and if her past beauty evolution has taught us anything, we feel confident saying these are just the beginning.
