Hair Stylist, AVIVA PEREA is one of Hollywood’s top hair gurus. She shares her inspiration and, “how-to” steps so fabulous ladies all around the world can replicate Zoe Saldana’s stunning style!

Get Zoe’s Look: Here’s the breakdown by HAIR STYLIST: AVIVA PEREA


INSPIRATION: Zoe’s Prabal Gurung dress was so beautiful and intricate that we wanted to do something that was sleek, elegant, and timeless.  On these award days the hair style really has to hold up under lights, in different temperatures, and for many hours and location changes so when the look is sleek it’s so important to make sure that the products can keep the hair smooth and keep the humidity out!

STEP 1: Starting with wet hair, apply L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream ($4.99) on the bottom 2 inches of hair.

STEP 2: For the blow-out, spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost it Blow Out Heatspray ($4.99) on the 1-2″ of hair closest to the roots; From that length down to the ends, spray L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray ($4.99). It’s the perfect combination for THE perfect blowout; The Boost It gives amazing lift and the Sleek It kicks any amount of frizz to the curb!

STEP 3:  Once Zoe’s hair was blown out, starting at the nape of her neck and working up to the top, take 1″ sections of hair and spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray and run flat iron down (the spray protects on heat up to 450 degrees)!

STEP 4: Once hair is shiny and sleek, gather it together and smooth it with a flat mixed bristle brush into an ear level ponytail;  Then slowly twist it into an elegant chignon and secured with a mix of bobby pins and hair pins.  Aviva then attached a stunning Lorraine Schwartz piece of jewelry to the right side of the bun

STEP 5: To secure the bun, Aviva sprayed L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99) onto a clean disposable mascara wand and gently combed down any flyaways for a super polished look; This is the perfect humidity armor to secure the look

STEP 6: To complete the look, spray the entire look with L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Volume Hairspray ($14.99);  This is the perfect way to seal  in the look while giving it brushable hold and a beautiful light shine.
