We’re simply loving young actress Skai Jackson’s hair flair! The 14-year-old star of Disney’s “Bunk’d” hit the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards red carpet this weekend (May 1) serving natural hair slayage. Her larger-than-life tresses (at least for her petite frame) gave us serious retro bohemian vibes.

It’s rare that we’re scampering to recreate a teen’s look, but her ‘do is definitely one for all ages. We caught up with celeb hairstylist Tym Wallace who shared the inspiration behind the glam look and how he created it with a simple twist-set.

We love how Wallace explained that “Skai’s hair was inspired by the bohemian style of Solange Knowles mixed with the femme fatale vibes of the 1940s.” The look went well with Jackson’s go-to mix-and-match pattern and color coordination.
