Zendaya has revealed her new look for the fall and it's got us all wanting to book a hair appointment right now.

The American actress and singer is renowned for her ever-changing looks but her latest longer hair statement look has got us all cutting out snaps of the 50s-inspired cut to take along with us for our hair stylist to recreate.

Zendaya has taken the plunge with a 'poodle cut' and a spicy pumpkin color we just can't get enough of.

The inspiration for this look appears to have come from hair artist Larry Sims' reference to Donyale Luna—celebrated as the first supermodel and woman of color to appear on the cover of Vogue.

Larry captioned the images from the shoot: "When Life Imitates Art 💥", along with hashtags #IssaReference and the #DonyaleLuna. 

Zendaya recently graced the cover of Essence magazine with jaw-length, curly, lacquered lengths.

In the past, Zendaya has turned heads with her mix of styles from braids and chunky blonde highlights to a bold plum red last summer. And who can forget that incredible Emmy-victory hairstyle?! 

And the "poodle cut" isn't the only retro hairstyle that's set to make a comeback—bouffants and beehives are getting a revival and Ariana Grande has been trying out those looks too.
