Zendaya’s dreadlocks are gone! She posted a photo to Instagram in the early morning hours of Feb. 27, and her dreadlocks are nowhere to be found. Was it because of Giuliana Rancic’s comments?
Zendaya has endured a tough week of media attention and lots of discussion about her Oscars hairstyle after Giuliana Rancic said she looked like she smelled like “weed“. After the show, she ditched the dreadlocks and hit a music studio with beachy waves covered by a beanie.

To provide some background, Giuliana commented that, at the Oscars, Zendaya looked like she smelled like “pachouli oil” or “weed” on the Feb. 23 episode of Fashion Police.
Giuliana issued an apology on E! News on Feb. 24, saying on camera: “This incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes, how much damage they can do, and that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. People are offended, including Zendaya, and that is not okay. Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I have hurt, that I am so, so sincerely sorry.”
Zendaya took to Instagram on Feb. 25 to say she appreciated Giuliana’s apology: “Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I’m glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network. I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well. From a quote we all know by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ‘Darkness cannot drive our darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.’ Let’s be that light and spread that love. — Zendaya Coleman”.
