Jenna Ortega said goodbye to Wednesday Addam’s braids—but not her iconic goth style.
On December 16, Ortega’s hairstylist Dave Stanwell showed off the Netflix star’s “fresh” wolf cut bob on Instagram, writing, “Today we did a thang ✂️.” In the vein of the popular wolf cut that took over TikTok feeds in the summer of 2021, Stanwell gave Ortega some shaggy, wavy layers with shorter mullet-style pieces in the front as well as some thick bangs. However, he gave the feral look a lighter feel by leaving the length of even the longest layers above Ortega’s shoulders.
Ortega debuted the chop later in the evening during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon wearing a completely sheer Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress with a metal corset belt over a black bra and matching briefs. The dress featured a white oxford collar, cuffs, and an oversized black tie for the perfect Nevermore touch. She topped off the look with jewelry by Grace Lee and KatKim.
Though the ensemble clearly matches Wednesday’s aesthetic, Ortega’s stylist Enrique Melendez shared his inspiration on Instagram Stories with a photo of Madonna in a similar look from her 1992 “Erotica” music video.
Of course, the 20-year-old shared the look on her own Instagram for her 29.6 million followers. She also paid homage to her character’s trending goth makeup with thick winged liner and the perfect amount of smudge. “Joan Jett,” one user commented, while her Wednesday costar Hunter Doohan wrote, “OMG HELP 🔥.”
Frankly, I vote she keeps this look for Wednesday season two.
