At The Words premiere in Los Angeles, Zoe Saldana hit the red carpet with a sexy, undone ponytail fashioned by celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszakfor. Inspired by Zoe Saldana’s lace Ellie Saab dress, Roszakfor created an “undone and sexy, yet effortless low messy ponytail” for the red carpet. Here’s how to DIY the sultry ponytail at home.
How To Get Zoe Saldana’s Hair in 4 Steps
Texturize. The undone quality of Zoe’s hair is all about texture without flyaways. Apply John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99) throughout towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray, as needed.
Wave. For a natural wavy texture, loosely braid hair and let hair air dry. Once hair is completely dry, take out the braid and break up the waves by running your fingers through your hair.

Pull Back. Gently tease the crown for a bit of height before pulling hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, overlapping the sections and pinning them in place with bobby pins. Continue all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a ponytail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look.
Polish. To finish the look, mist hair with a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99).
