Zoe Saldana's Day-to-Night Updo and Red Lipstick

Zoe Saldana Shows How to Take a Chignon From Day to Date

Zoe Saldana had a packed schedule yesterday, heading from the Golden Globe Award nominations to the amfAR Inspiration Gala. She showed us how to pull off a daytime chignon with red lipstick (left) and then transformed the same look into an elegant date-night style (right).

Her polished chignon is an easy look you can quickly pull off before heading to the office. Zoe wore a slightly off-center part to frame her face and pulled the rest of her hair back into a sleek low bun. To copy her style, make sure to tease your hair at the crown for a little lift before smoothing your hair back. Don't forget to use a finishing cream like Frédéric Fekkai Coiff Perfectuer Anti-Frizz Silkening Creme ($25) as you pull your hair back to ensure a similarly sleek chignon. Finish off your look with a flick of liquid liner, a touch of blush on your cheeks, and a swipe of cherry-red lipstick like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipcolor in Fire and Ice ($7).

When 5 o'clock hits and you're sprucing up your daytime look for a night out, do like Zoe did and give your updo a quick twist! Take out your daytime 'do, and give it a quick spray of dry shampoo for some added texture. Shake up your hair with your hands before pulling it back into a looser, messier chignon. Leave out a face-framing tendril that you can give a quick curl with something like the Conair Mini Pro Curling Iron ($16, originally $21), which is small enough to stick in your handbag. Update your makeup by adding bronze shadow to your winged eyeliner, and swipe on a richer red lipstick like Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Icon ($30).
