CeleBeauty Zoe Saldana sported a romantic, tousled hairstyle on the red carpet for the premiere of her new film, The Words, at the Arc Light Theater in Hollywood, California on September 4, 2012.
Celeb hairstylist artist Mara Roszak created the look. Taking inspiration from Zoe’s lace Ellie Saab dress, Roszak styled what she described an “undone and sexy, yet effortless low messy ponytail" for the event.

What You'll Need:
Get Zoe’s Red Carpet Coif in three simple steps:
1. Prep and Texturize
Achieving the undone quality of Zoe’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying a curl-enhancing product through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

2. Secure the Style
To create the perfect natural wavy texture, loosely braid hair and let it dry. Once hair is completely dry, take out the braid and break up the waves by running your fingers through your hair. Gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, allowing one section of hair to overlap the other and pin in place with bobby pins. Continue this all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a pony tail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look.
