Zoe Saldana gave us a whole lot of hairstyle inspiration at the Oscars last weekend with not just one, but two gorgeous curly hairstyles! The actress began the night with a chic chignon, then switched things up with a messy fishtail braid for the after party later in the evening.

To find out how to recreate her braid, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream evenly throughout, then blow-dry with the diffuser attachment.

For those of you with naturally straight hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoothing Cream and dry as you normally would.

Step 2
Once your hair is completely dry, use a curling iron to create more curls wherever you need to fill out the shape - or all over if you have straight locks.

Step 3
At the crown and the back of your head, spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Gently massage them with your fingertips and/or tease with a fine-tooth comb as necessary to add height and increase volume.

Step 4
Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, then fishtail braid it all the way to the ends. After securing the braid, gently pull the braid out at the side to loosen it.

Step 5
Complete the look with a veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set!
