Yesterday (January 12) Zoe Saldana stepped on the red carpet in an intricate hand-embroidered, Swarovski crystal Prabal Gurung dress. To comelete her look, Zoe needed a hairstyle that was just as elegant. Hairstylist Aviva Perea was kind enough to dish on the products used to create Zoe’s timeless hairstyle.
“On these award days the hair style really has to hold up under lights, in different temperatures for many hours,” said hairstylist Aviva Perea. “When the look is sleek it’s so important to make sure that the products can keep the hair smooth and keep the humidity out.”

STEP 2: For the blow-out, spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost it Blow Out Heatspray ($4.99) on the 1-2″ of hair closest to the roots. From that length down to the ends, spray L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray ($4.99).
STEP 3: Once Zoe’s hair was blown out, starting at the nape of her neck and working up to the top, take 1″ sections of hair and spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray and run flat iron down (the spray protects on heat up to 450 degrees)!
STEP 4: Once hair is shiny and sleek, gather it together and smooth it with a flat mixed bristle brush into an ear level ponytail. Then slowly twist it into an elegant chignon and secured with a mix of bobby pins and hair pins. Aviva then attached a stunning Lorraine Schwartz piece of jewelry to the right side of the bun.
STEP 5: To secure the bun, Aviva sprayed L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99) onto a clean disposable mascara wand and gently combed down any flyaways for a super polished look.
STEP 6: To complete the look, spray the entire look with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Volume Hairspray ($14.99). This is the perfect way to seal in the look while giving it brushable hold and a beautiful light shine.
