While the tight crops of the Jazz Age are blowing up the beauty blogosphere as Gatsby continues its red-carpet domination, we’d like to remind everyone that it was the pin curls and marcel waves of the thirties and forties that made the rounds on the Fall runways. Zoe Saldana certainly hasn’t forgotten. For the U.K. premiere of Star Trek: Into Darkness, the Vionnet-clad starlet, who wore a striking slick of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Portofino Red courtesy of makeup artist Vera Steimberg, had her hairstylist, Mara Roszak, create a glossy, side-parted faux bob with a few soft ridges for added texture. Here, Roszak shares some exclusive pregame pictures with us and breaks down the look in six easy steps:
1. Prep your hair with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Spray and rough dry.
2. Use a 1-inch-barrel curling iron, creating pin curls all over your head as you go.
3. Set the coils with Frédéric Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray and let sit for ten minutes.
4. Brush out the waves and then tease the ends to helpcreate thickness.
5. Tuck ends underneath themselves and pin at the nape of the neck.
6. Spray a halo of Frédéric Fekkai Glossing Mist all over the head to add extra shine.
It looks like Jennifer Aniston’s first official task as the newly named co-owner of Living Proof, the technology-backed hair-care brand, is a video series called “Good Hair Days.” The Webisodes will co-star her longtime stylist, Chris McMillan, as well as fashion expert Bobbie Thomas, and feature short vignettes with real women as they confess the lengths they’ve gone to for “good hair.” [People]
In more Team Jen news, to prep for her impending nuptials to Justin Theroux, Aniston is presumably drinking plenty of Smart Water—and doing lots of yoga, she revealed at a launch party for her yogi Mandy Ingber’s new book. An active practitioner, Aniston reportedly participates in the ancient stretching ritual three times a week and even attributes her famous gams to the low-impact exercise method. “I credit [Mandy] for them!” she says.

Amid a sea of Hollywood starlets coming out against Botox, Zoe Saldana is taking a stand in favor of the wrinkle-erasing toxin. “I’d have Botox. Absolutely! It scares me that there are so many women unhappy with themselves, ashamed of themselves, of ageing, of being who they are. Because the only reason they’re hiding it is because they’re afraid of rejection and judgement. That’s external.” [Female First via InStyle U.K.]
Zoe Saldana is making moves. The Colombiana star is hitting the premiere circuit hard, promoting her new flick from Miami to L.A. While the stunning actress’ wardrobe has run the gamut from hot pink and green Prabal Gurung to a plunging-neck, Grecian-style Balmain gown and last night’s coral, sleeveless mini-dress, one thing has remained constant: her nail color. Saldana is partial to a super-dark, almost black lacquer. She appears to love her manicure so much, in fact, she’s letting it grow out with her nails—a red-carpet faux pas that we’re 100 percent ready to support. The key to the color’s wearability is that it’s not a stark blue-—but rather a burnt espresso bean brown-black, like Zoya’s new varnish Codie. Thoughts on the bold color?
