NBA legend Dwyane Wade and his daughter Zaya are following the “red hair don’t care” mantra, showing off their new red hair color.
Recently Dwyane Wade documented the transformation of his hair on social media as he dyed his black hair pink and then to a brighter shade of red. One Instagram post featured a picture of Wade showing off his pink hairdo in a mirror. Another post showed Wade with his bright red hair enjoying a glass of wine. He captioned the post: “𝑊ℎ𝑒𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑦 𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑘 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑦 𝑘𝑛𝑜𝑤 𝑦𝑜𝑢– 𝑆𝑤𝑖𝑡𝑐ℎ 𝑖𝑡 𝑢𝑝! #𝐹𝑟𝑒𝑒 #𝑅𝑒𝑑𝐻𝑎𝑖𝑟𝐷𝑜𝑛𝑡𝐶𝑎𝑟𝑒🩸.”
Dwyane Wade’s eldest son, 18-year-old Zaire Wade, commented on his father’s red hair, writing “Dennis Jr was good!!” in reference to NBA legend Dennis Rodman, who dyed his hair a variety of colors during his career. Ironically, Wade released another post with his red hair next to a picture of Dennis Rodman sporting red hair. The picture has a caption of Rodman complimenting Wade’s hairdo, saying “Nice. Hair. Brother. 👍.” Wade repeated those words in the caption of the post.
Dwyane’s 12-year-old daughter Zaya Wade was in on the fun, dying her hair pink as well. On TikTok, Dwyane shared a clip of him and Zaya exhibiting their red hairstyles. Another video shows Dwyane slowly walking into a pool in one scene, and the next scene features Zaya and Dwyane behind the wheel of a Porsche convertible. The song “Deep End Freestyle” by Sleepy Hallow played over the video and Wade captioned it: “#𝑊𝑒𝐷𝑖𝑓𝑓𝑒𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑡 #𝐷𝑒𝑒𝑝𝐸𝑛𝑑.”
Dwyane Wade shares Zaire and Zaya Wade (who was originally born as Zion but came out as transgender around February 2020 and changed her name to Zaya) with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. He also shares his 6-year-old son Xavier Wade with his ex-girlfriend Aja Metoyer. Dwyane is married to his current wife, actress Gabrielle Union and together they parent their 1-year-old daughter Kaavia Wade.
