Which of Zoe's updos do you like best?

Zoe Saldana is always a great person to go to when you're looking for some fresh hairspiration. Now that updo season - also known as summer - is upon us, there's no better time to revisit two of her prettiest chignons. On the left, you can see the Star Trek Into Darkness star with a tousled, wavy updo and on the right, she's sporting a sleeker side-parted style.

The question is, which look do you like best? Let us know by voting above!

Laid back

Zoe's wavy updo is the perfect style for a relaxed, casual event. Her hair is up and off the back of her neck, which is essential during the warmer months, but the style retains plenty of movement with the textured pieces that fall prettily around the sides of her face.

Get the look: To recreate this updo, spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout then blow-dry it in large twisted chunks. Finger-comb the hair to break it into waves then pin it all up into a French twist at the back. Mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set!


With a sleeker wave and a tighter chignon at the back, Zoe's smoother updo is a great look for a special summertime occasion. It's certainly a grown-up style but it doesn't come off as too severe. Not only that, the loose hair at the front helps to soften the overall look, making it suitable for many different face shapes.

Get the look: Part your hair deep on one side with a tail comb then spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Flat iron all but a large section at the front. Leaving this section loose, smooth the rest of your hair back into a low bun or chignon and pin. Take a medium-barrel curling iron and curl the front section, rolling it up no further than brow-bone level. Brush the curl through then give all of your hair a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray.

What do you think? Which style would you try?
