Zoe Saldana is always a great source of hairstyle inspiration and whether her hair is styled romantic or sleek – or both – the Guardians of the Galaxy star always keeps her cool. Now that updo season is upon us, the time is just right for taking a look back of some of Zoe's best warm-weather looks, mostly with the intention of stealing them...

Romance isn't dead

If your hair is prone to frizz and you just don't have the time to spend battling it into submission, use it to your advantage in a windswept romantic updo. "Windswept" is really just a fancy way of describing intentionally styled frizz so it's a perfect solution! Zoe's chic chignon is really easy to style and the added texture creates a look that is at once cute and practical. Talk about a win-win situation...

To style: Blow-dry your hair after applying Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse. Once it's all dry, back-comb the hair at the crown to build some extra height. Twist a chunk of hair from each side of your face – level with your temples - and pin them together at the back. Pin the rest of your hair back into a chignon or, because it's easier, a low bun. Spray liberally with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set!

Smooth operator

When it's hot out and you need your hair to behave itself, a tight, sleek updo is just what you need. Zoe's ultra-smooth style is the epitome of sleek summertime chic and it can be recreated in hardly any time at all!

To style: Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray then flat iton. Brush all your hair back off your face then gather it into a tight low pony at the nape of your neck. Twist the 'tail' into a bun and pin. Mist with Bold Control Hairspray all over then, to tame any flyaways, spray some more onto the palm of your hand and firmly smooth it over any areas that need it.

Bless this mess

Tousled hair is a huge and mercifully messy hairstyle trend right now and, unsurprisingly, Zoe Saldana rocked the red carpet recently with one of the best artfully (read: purposefully) disheveled updos we've seen yet!

To style: Spray dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Twist a large-ish chunk then blow-dry it while you hold onto the ends. Repeat until all of your hair is dry. If you would prefer to avoid heat tools at all costs, spray the hair then pin it up into two buns and let it dry on its own. Next, break up the twists then sweep your hair up into a loose French twist and pull a few small pieces loose at the front to frame your face. Fix with Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!
