Zoe Saldana attended the 11th annual Step Up Inspiration Awards on May 30th and, we have to say, her red carpet look was almost as impressive as her advocacy work which won her a prize at the ceremony! Her hair was a particular highlight, as it always is...

After a couple of stunning performances at the Cannes Film Festival in May, the Guardians of the Galaxy star pulled of yet another gorgeous updo in the form of a French twist. With a wavy texture and the bangs left loose at the front, this style created a practically perfect summer look. Romantic yet understated, it's the kind of hairstyle that looks good on just about any and every face shape, too.

If you would like to recreate Zoe's 'do, follow the tutorial below!

What you need:
Wave enhancing spray
Wide-tooth comb
Bobby pins
Finishing spray

Step one: To create a slightly wavy texture, spray the mid-lengths and ends with a wave enhancing spray. Scrunch it evenly throughout then pin the hair up in a loose, low bun while it dries. If you're on a tight schedule, use a blow-dryer, but keep it au naturel if you can.

Step two: Use a wide-tooth comb to part your hair then smooth it all back off your face. As you do this, shake your bangs loose.

Step three: Brush your hair over to one side at the back and use bobby pins to hold it there.

Step four: Brush the hair from the other side back over itself and roll it inwards to create the "twist". If it looks like a banana, you're doing it right. Tuck the ends in at the top and secure with plenty of bobby pins.

Step five: Complete the look with a mist of finishing spray to give your hair plenty of hold and a little extra shine.

That's it!
