Zoe Saldana at The Words Premiere-AKA: Get the Look with John Frieda

Zoe Saldana at the premiere of The Words

I have been a fan of Zoe Saldana since she made her film debut in the ballet drama, Center Stage. She's always had a unique since of style and has carried herself well throughout her Hollywood career. Currently she can be seen in the new film, The Words, starring hot hot hottie Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde. She looked beyond impeccable at last night's premiere of the movie...

Celebrity hairstylist artist Mara Roszak created Zoe Saldana’s look for last night’s The Words premiere in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from Zoe’s lace Ellie Saab dress, Roszak created an undone and sexy, yet effortless low messy ponytail for the red carpet.

Getting Zoe's lovely, red carpet hair is as easy as 1-2-3:

Prep and Texturize
Achieving the undone quality of Zoe’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse($5.99 at drugstores) through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

Secure the Style
To create the perfect natural wavy texture, loosely braid hair and let it dry. Once hair is completely dry, take out the braid and break up the waves by running your fingers through your hair. Gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, allowing one section of hair to overlap the other and pin in place with bobby pins. Continue this all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a pony tail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look.

Polish and Perfect
To finish the look, mist a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) in an even, all-around motion.

It's as simple as that! I fully plan on recreating this great hair style, especially when I want to look elegant yet effortless. I'll be sure to take pictures to share when I try it out! Will you be giving it a shot? What's your favorite Zoe Saldana movie? Are you looking forward to seeing The Words (it looks kind of intense)? What's your favorite John Frieda product (Frizz Ease is an HG for me)? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...

Ciao, XxO
