Zoe Saldana Best Hairstyle for a Strapless Dress

Waves of glam

“Zoe Saldana’s dress is frilly and playful, and her playful hair goes with it perfectly,” Nerizagal says. (If this was a structured mermaid dress, you would need a more structured, posh ‘do, like a classic updo.) Here’s a way to cop Saldana’s look:

Step 1: Apply light-hold setting lotion like Kusco-Murphy Setting Lotion, $28 to clean wet hair and blow dry straight. (It doesn’t have to be pin straight.)

Step 2: Create pin curls: Wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a curling iron. As you slip each curl off the rod, rewrap it using your fingers, and pin it against your head. Work fast — the curl should still be hot as you pin it.

Step 3: Allow curls to cool completely — 45 minutes, or longer. It’s the perfect time to do your makeup, clean out your bathroom cabinet, whatevs.

Step 4: Remove pins and lightly finger comb.
