L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Zoe Saldana is one of our favorite sources of hairstyle inspiration and we think that this side-swept wavy look is the perfect steal for the weekend. With the holiday season in full swing, it's a versatile 'do that you can wear to a party, but it's also understated enough to work for more casual festivities, too.

Find out how to recreate the look with the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry hair, brush it through to detangle, then define a part on your favorite side. To get an accurate line, use a tail comb to trace the part.

Step 2
Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray throughout. Make sure you get even coverage because the spray will protect your hair from heat damage.

Step 3
Use a 1.5 inch curling iron to curl your hair from eye-level down. When you're done curling, gently brush your hair, then run your fingers through the waves to make them look more natural.

Step 4
Throw all of your hair over one shoulder, then complete the look with a veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will protect your style from frizz by sealing it against any moisture in the air, and give your curls long-lasting hold.
