We are all about summer beauty right now, and so is L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Zoe Saldana it seems! The actress was recently spotted with a beachy side-swept hairstyle that was both understated and totally glamorous at the same time. We think it's the perfect look to inject a little sunshine into any ensemble, whether you need a new 'do for work or want a voluminous look for a night out.
To find out how to recreate Zoe's look, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below!
Get the look
Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply a thermal protectant spray evenly throughout and rough dry your hair without a brush until it's only slightly damp, sweeping the hair to one side as you go.
To minimize drying time, flip your head upside down then blow-dry the bottom layers for a few minutes. This will remove a lot of the excess moisture really quickly because the hair that usually lies underneath the rest is the slowest to dry.
When your hair is about 80% dry, apply a straightening cream and complete the blowout using a medium-barrel round brush to add movement. To get the texture just so, you don't want to curl the hair, you only want to curve it slightly through the mid-lengths and ends.
When your hair is completely dry, smooth it with a boar bristle brush and run some hair oil through the ends to calm your mane after blowdrying.
To add shine to your style, and eliminate flyaways, mist your hair all over with a high shine finishing spray to complete your new summery side sweep!
