After recently giving birth to her first child, L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Zoe Saldana made her red carpet return at the Oscars this weekend with a beautiful chignon hairstyle. We think it's the perfect updo to steal, whether you're looking for a new hairstyle for work, or just want to inject some Hollywood glamor into your go-to beauty look!

How to style it

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

If you have 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 necessary - or all over if you have straight tresses.

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 to add height and increase volume.

Step 4
Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, then loosely twist and pin it into a chignon, working in medium-sized sections. Start with pieces from either side of your face and build from there.

Step 5
Gently tease a few curls loose here and there to soften the look and frame your face.

Step 6
Mist your finished updo with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to complete the look.
