Which of Zoe's looks do you prefer?

L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Zoe Saldana knows how to make an understated hairstyle work for just about any occasion, whether up or down. At the 11th annual Step Up Inspiration Awards recently, the Guardians of the Galaxy star hit the red carpet with a romantic updo following a separate appearance just days before at a party in France with a sleeker 'down' style.

The question is, which 'do looked best?

Lovely locks

Left loose, Zoe's hair is generally as impressive as when she puts it all up. Her sleek waves are styled but not over-styled and they're perfect for balancing out a daring neckline and a busy print.

How to style: Cheat your way to Zoe's high-shine look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will tame any flyaways, giving the hair a smooth, cashmere-soft finish.

Easygoing updo

After an impressive red carpet performance at the Cannes Film Festival in May, the actress pulled off yet another gorgeous updo in the form of a French Twist. With a wavy texture and the bangs left loose at the front, this style created a practically perfect summer look. Romantic yet understated, it's the kind of hairstyle that looks good on just about any and every face shape.

How to style: Apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray then blow-dry the hair in medium-sized twisted sections. This will create effortless-looking waves à la Saldana to style a French twist with!

The verdict

Both of these hairstyles are super versatile - either one could be worn anywhere from a job interview to a wedding. So, it really comes down to how you want your hair to fit with the rest of your look. Up might be more practical or better for certain necklines/jewellery/makeup etc. whereas down is just effortlessly cool and never looks overdone.

What do you think? Which style is your favorite?

All we know for sure is that Zoe Saldana's hair should win some kind of award for looking consistently awesome...
