There’s absolutely no question that Zendaya holds the title as the ultimate hair chameleon. From big curls to a close cropped TWA, we’re pretty sure we’ve seen the star try almost every style under the sun.

That is until last night! 

Clad in a star-print long-sleeve black Vivetta gown, Zendaya debuted a blonde pixie cut at this year’s Fashion Awards in London. While bright blonde has officially become 2017’s hair color of the year, it seems like almost every celebrity has rocked it, we have yet to see someone opt for a pixie blonde ‘do.

Of course we’re utterly obsessed with this hairstyle, and seriously contemplating giving it a try this winter. To help us decide if we should in fact go for it, we chatted with Ursula Stephen, Zendaya’s hairstylist, to give us the inside scoop. 

A blonde pixie is something we haven’t seen Zendaya try yet! What was the inspiration? 

“We chose blonde because we wanted a contrast between the hair and the dress. We thought it would make more of an impact.” 

We’ve seen quite a few celebrities go blonde this year, such as Solange, but this shade seems a bit more dimensional. 

“I chose that blonde because it was fairy-ish. Softer than the usual yellow blonde which could come across a bit more trendy. I didn’t want that, I wanted classic.” 

Any advice for someone contemplating this style? 

“Just go for it! Why not a pixie? It’s a such a versatile non-committal cut.” 

Oh, and what’s the one product needed to for the perfect pixie?
