L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Zoe Saldana is always a great go-to source of hairstyle inspiration, and at the GLAAD Media Awards this weekend, she knocked it out of the park with a chic chignon updo. To find out how to recreate her look, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with clean, towel dried hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray and rough dry your hair until it's about 80% dry.

Step 2
Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream throughout and complete the blowout using a paddle brush to keep the hair smooth.

Step 3
Once you hair is completely dry, define a deep side part with a tail comb, then smooth some hair oil through the mid-lengths and ends to add shine and soothe the hair after blowdrying.

Step 4
Section off a large piece of hair at the front on the side of your part with the most hair and clip it up while you work on the rest.

Step 5
Gather the loose hair at the nape of your neck and loosely twist it into a low, loose bun shape - it should be almost more like a loop than a bun. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 6
Unclip the front section of hair, drape it back over your ear and wrap it around the bun. Secure with more bobby pins.

Step 7
To eliminate any flyaways and give your hair a glossy finish, mist your finished updo with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to complete the look.
