When it comes to style, Zoë Kravitz can do no harm. Over the past year alone, the actress and singer, perhaps best known for her role as the complex neo-hippie Bonnie Carlson on the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies, has shifted between everything from blonde and brunette to a buzz cut and long braids. Now, she's taken yet another stylistic turn, this time taking the pixie cut trend to a dark place. Today, Kravitz casually posted a close look at her newly brunette hair on Instagram.
"Aaaaaaaaaaaand my coats caught in the door... siiiiiiiickkkkkkkkmkkkkkkk......," she captioned the photo of herself standing outside of a door in a plaid shirt, black jeans, mules and a long black coat that was, indeed, stuck in a door.
While she didn't credit the hair stylist behind her brunette pixie cut, in the past she has been vocal about giving shine to Nikki Nelms, whose clients also include Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, Serena Williams and La La Anthony. “Nikki is like family. She understands and elevates my aesthetic,” Kravitz told Vogue about her in January. As Kravitz's Instagram suggests, the pair have worked together since, with Nelms helping the recently appointed YSL beauty ambassador throughout her transition from blonde into brunette.
Naturally, Kravitz made the often-awkward in-between hair color look easy.
Considering it was just four days ago that Kravitz revealed her new post at YSL, her updated look could have something to do with her new role. "So honored to be named @yslbeauty global 🌎ambassador !!! ❤️," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "Thank you to my @yslbeauty family for allowing me to continue this journey with you. Let's do our best to inspire people to feel beautiful, inside and out!" The role is in addition to Kravitz's other recently announced gig as one of the new face's of Tiffany's.
Regardless of her motivation for going brunette though, one thing is certain: it won't be long before more follow suit. After all, right after she chopped off all of her braids in favor of a blonde buzzed look, the style became one of the year's biggest hair trends. Kristen Stewart aside — who showed off a blonde pixie cut back in March — Cara Delevingne, Emma Roberts, and Katy Perry have also stepped out in the look. Leave it to Kravitz, though, to always stay evolving.
