When choosing the perfect prom hairstyle, you want something glamorous yet understated, pretty yet sophisticated, and Zoe Saldana is a lady who knows exactly how to do all of that with just one gorgeous updo. We've selected five of her best red carpet looks to inspire your prom hairstyle. Which one will you steal?
1. Romantic curly updo
At the Oscars earlier this year, Zoe hit the red carpet with an intricate chignon, complete with romantic coils and tendrils to soften the look. Whether you have a glitzy ensemble in mind or are planning something with more of a boho vibe, this updo is definitely one you should consider!
After curling each piece of hair, gently pool it in your hand, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and clip it up to cool. This will set your strands into long-lasting curls that won't fall flat.
2. Curly fishtail braid
If you love braided hairstyles, this is the prom look for you. A simple fishtail side braid with defined, glossy curls is a sumptuous, polished style that frames the face beautifully. It also does a wonderful job of showcasing any jewelry you want to wear.
Begin by braiding your fishtail quite tightly, then loosen it by gently pulling it outward with your hands after securing the ends. To soften the edges, gently tease a few random pieces of hair free along the length the braid.
3. Half-up princess hair
Prom is a special occasion, which makes it the perfect excuse to rock a cute princess hairstyle! With added volume at the crown, some adorable twists and plenty of loose waves at the back, this half-up 'do has it all.
After curling your hair, spritz the roots at the crown with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and gently tease the hair with a fine-tooth comb to whip up some extra volume.
4. Cute, wavy updo
If you want to let your prom dress do all the talking, a cute, wavy updo is exactly what you need. It's understated enough to avoid overwhelming the rest of your look, but the texture keeps it pretty and interesting.
Mist damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry it in twisted sections to create loose waves. Once dried, use a curling iron to add more waves wherever necessary.
5. Low chignon
Chic and totally sophisticated, this updo will keep your hair up and under control without compromising on style. You can wear it by itself or add a minimalist accessory for some extra detail.
Scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse into damp hair and rough dry it all the way to create an airy, voluminous texture.
