Zoe Saldana never disappoints on the red carpet and at the recent Los Angeles premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy, the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson pulled off yet another ultra-glamorous look. With her hair sculpted into a vintage-style faux bob, Zoe's look was elegant yet totally understated.

To find out how to recreate this style, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.

Step one: Starting with clean, towel-dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Scrunch it through the ends then use your fingers to comb it evenly through the rest. This is important as the cream is a heat protectant which you will need in the following steps.

Step two: Blow-dry your hair using a round brush, curving the ends slightly inward. Work in sections, wrapping the hair around the brush then gliding it down to the ends as you dry.

Step three: Once dried, part your hair on one side using a tail comb to define an accurate line. Then, take a curling iron to make a couple of big waves at the front.

Step four: Brush your hair through - waves included - then tie the hair into a loose, low ponytail. Pull the hair tie out almost completely then stop about an inch or so before the tips. Roll the elastic in toward the nape of your neck, splaying the faux 'ends' out into a bob-like shape as you go. Once you reach your neck, pin the hair into place.

Step five: If you need to use a bobby pin to secure the little wave at the front near the top of your ear. Then, complete your new red carpet inspired look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

Will you be channeling your inner Zoe Saldana anytime soon?
