We've been oohing and aahing over braided styles of all sorts for months now. And, besides a little thing called seasonal appropriateness, we see no reason to curtail our obsession.
Thanks to one Zoe Saldana, not even the dark days of winter can stop our infatuation with our favorite warm-weather hairstyle. The actress makes her milkmaid braid work thanks to a sleek, smooth finish on her strands. elevating the bohemian style with a complementary smoky-but-subtle eye. In fact, her hair and makeup pretty much look like a match made in heaven. We're only left to wonder, which came first — the crown braid or the eye makeup?
Either way, considering our prevailing interests as of late, we're in awe of how Saldana managed to winterize our favorite summer hairstyle. You can bet we've saved this image in our hair-spiration folder. And that we may or may not be planning to print it out for a real-time reference as we prep for our next holiday party.
