When it comes to this year's hair trends, there's nothing quite as popular as the bob hairstyle. We've been seeing some of our favourite celebrities chopping off their locks in favour of the shorter style, and if you weren't already convinced, then Zendaya's latest look will have you running to the hairdressers.
The star returned to the red carpet at the NAACP and SAG awards this weekend, and showed off her layered bob, which celebrity hairstylist and Jerome Russell Brand Educator, Jason Collier, has coined as 'The Modern Marilyn'.
"We're all about iconic hair looks making a comeback this year, but with modern updates," says Collier. "Zendaya's hair is so reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe's signature tight tousled curls, but with some modern edge of extra length, a diagonal hair part, and looser waves."
It's safe to say that we're obsessed with Zendaya's look, and it seems that we are not alone. In fact, Lookfantastic reported that searches for 'bob hairstyles' has skyrocketed by 250% since Saturday.
But what's the secret behind the star's shiny locks? Luckily for us, Zendaya’s hair stylist Tai Simon shared a full rundown of the products she used over on Instagram, and you can get the star's high-shine finish for just £9.

That's right, Simon used the OGX Renewing+ Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil to add a mirror-like shine, and we will be adding the product to our baskets straight away.
This oil is designed to be used before styling the hair, and is enriched with Moroccan Argan Oil to lock in hydration for a sleek, shiny finish.
Simon also used the OGX Nourishing+ Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum, which protects each strand of hair to keep it shiny and strong whilst styling.
Apply a few drops of this serum to the palms of your hands and apply to towel dried hair before blow drying and styling to help keep it silky and strong.
See? The perfect blow dry doesn't have to break the bank. Race you to the checkout?
For those of you wondering about make-up, don't worry, because we've got all those details too. Celebrity make-up artist Raoúl Alejandre created a soft look that was inspired by the silk roses in Zendaya's gown.
Alejandre used the Lancôme Blush Subtil Powder Blush in 347 Rose Liberte for a pop of colour on the cheeks, before applying the Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Pink Pearls all over the eyelids. The look was finished off with the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in Mon Macaron. Simply stunning.
This silky powder blush by Lancôme blends seamlessly into the skin for a fresh, natural finish. It comes in matte, shimmering and sparkling shades no matter what look you are going for.
