Watching Zoe Saldana at the Cannes Film Festival is a bit like watching a swan on a lake. With more grace and elegance that we thought was humanly possible she glides between red carpet poses, looking every inch the silver screen siren. Jealous? Us? Yes!

For her second outing at the festival as a L'Oréal Paris spokesperson, Zoe's hair was, without doubt, her crowning glory. Twisted and pinned into a chic chignon, it was the perfect night out updo, albeit an especially glamorous one.

If you're in need of a cute party hairstyle this weekend, you could certainly do worse than take inspiration from Zoe!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Hair tie
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Part your hair to one side then spray with High Lift Creation Spray. Massage the roots with your fingertips to boost volume. If yu need more height, gently tease with a fine-tooth comb.

Step two: Smooth the hair back and secure into a loose, low ponytail.

Step three: Divide the pony into several sections. Twist each one and pin it over the hair tie. Keep going until all of the hair is pinned up to form a low chignon.

Step four: Use your hands to adjust the hair at the front. Tease a few strands loose – this will create a softer silhouette, giving your look an enchanted vibe.

Step five: Finish the style with a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray. This will keep your hair in place while you party to your heart's content!

Happy styling!
