Hot Summer Hairstyle: Modern Twisted Updo

August 1, 2013 at 7:00 am , by

We were blown away when actress Zoe Saldana wore this incredibly chic updo to the Star Trek premiere. With swept-back hair, soft makeup, and classic red lipstick, Zoe is the epitome of glamour. To recreate her style, start with hair that hasn’t been washed for a day. Although Zoe’s hair is fairly straight, this look works great with naturally wavy hair, too. Starting at the front of your head, take a strand of hair, twist it, and pin into place. Continue twisting piece by piece all the way down and back. Do this on both sides of your head. Once both sides meet, twist the hair up into itself and secure with bobby pins. It’s ok if it looks a little undone because you’ll finish your look with a delicate beaded headband. (We like this one from Anthropologie.) Add some light-hold hairspray, and you have a sophisticated new ‘do perfect for a summer soiree.
