Why beauty is never the same

6 Nov

Having a signature look can be great. Knowing you have that one style that people recognise you for, associate you with is confidence building. It might be a blunt fringe or a smoky eye, nude lip.

Yet there aren’t many of us who look the same every day. We experiment, we try different styles and different looks depending on our mood, and how we’re feeling, or where we’re going.


Zendaya has a cover spread in Flare magazine, out next month, when she talks about just that. Known for her frequent hairstyle changes, from dreadlocks to pixie cut to mid-length wavy locks, she talks about what makes her want to change her style as often as she does.

“A big reason I play with beauty and hair is that it’s important to show different kinds of beauty when I’m on the red carpet”, Zendaya says.

“I don’t want to be just one-dimensional or relatable to one type of person. I want a different woman to be like, That’s like me! That’s like my hair! or That’s so my style!”

She continues, “If I went out there and was just like, pretty, all the time, doing the same thing, it can be cool, but you’re also catering to one type of person, and what about all those other kinds of beautiful out there?”

You can see where she’s coming from. If you had to get ready for red carpet events and you knew girls were looking at you and taking inspiration, you’d want as many girls as possible to see themselves in your own style. Beauty standards can be so fixed in modern culture, representing different kinds of beauty, different ethnicities, ideas, styles or inspirations is vital to show people that beauty is beauty, no matter what you look like.

At Dream Girl this is a huge part of our mantra. Hair extensions, wigs, whether using 100% human hair or synthetic offer a chance to be a different person, to explore a different style or try a new direction. People might turn round and say “oh what difference is long hair going to make, if you have short hair” but we know it makes a huge difference. You can feel edgy, or girly, soft depending on your mood.

That’s what hair extensions are for, especially clip-ons, and wigs that can change your style in minutes. Like Zendaya you can experiment with different looks depending on how you’re feeling, explore new colours and go for a different style every time you leave the house.

A signature style is great but we’re thinking maybe we should embrace Zendaya’s signature style a little more and go for a different look every time we want to show a different side to ourselves!
