Zoe Kravitz kept her "complicated" hair in the braids from her movie Dope to make life easier.
The 27-year-old star takes after her parents, musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, when it comes to her edgy aesthetic and often switches up her look. Zoe's hair never stays the same for long and she's rocked everything from shiny straight locks to her current braided do - which is one of her favourites.
“I think all brown girls have a complicated relationship with their hair,” she matter-of-factly told Byrdie. “Oh, I put in braids for the character I played in the movie Dope, and I’m like, ‘This is nice.' Then I kept them in. It’s good for my hair, and it looks cool and it’s easy, and I don’t have to do anything when it’s done. It’s great.”
The same simplicity is applied when it comes to the rest of her beauty regime, especially in maintaining a fresh complexion. Zoe has a striking resemblance to her 48-year-old mother and has picked up plenty of tips from her over the years.

Actress Zoe Kravitz has been announced as the new face of YSL Beauty.
The 27-year-old Divergent and X-Men: First Class star was unveiled as the designer brand's latest muse on Tuesday (03May16), just a day after Zoe tagged the company while she was preparing for the Met Gala in New York and in red carpet social media posts.

Zoe Kravitz has started her own script writing group in a bid to create more diverse movie roles.
The Divergent actress is pleased the issue of diversity is now being discussed more openly in Hollywood, particularly after the 2016 Oscars white-out controversy, and now she is doing more than just joining the call for change - she's actively doing something about it.
She tells The Associated Press she has started gathering her filmmaker friends for weekly writing sessions with the goal of producing a unique movie script together.
"I love the fact that there's such an open dialogue right now about women in Hollywood and black women and black men in Hollywood and everything in between," she said. "Now it's about us bringing the change.

After the more thrilling Insurgent, this saga reverts to the talky style of the original Divergent movie, constantly explaining this post-apocalyptic world's convoluted mythology before indulging in whizzy action that has little to do with the story or characters. It's a strange step back for a franchise that has such a strong cast and high production values. And this movie also feels frustratingly incomplete, because it's only based on the first half of Veronica Roth's third and final novel (a fourth film, Ascendant, is due next year).
When we last saw our hero Tris (Shailene Woodley), she and her hunky boyfriend Four (Theo James) had overthrown the nasty Erudite leaders to create a "factionless" society in Chicago under new leader Evelyn (Naomi Watts), Four's mother. But Evelyn's willingness to indulge in military excesses causes a rift with the more peace-loving leader Johanna (Octavia Spencer), sparking a civil war. Bored with this, Tris and Four free Tris' brother Caleb (Ansel Elgort) from death row and escape over the walls out of Chicago along with cohorts Peter and Christina (Miles Teller and Zoe Kravitz). Fleeing into the fringe, they encounter a peaceful, futuristic community called the Bureau of Genetic Welfare, run by David (Jeff Daniels). There they learn new facts about their past, but they're unable to ignore the unravelling situation in Chicago.
As in the first film, this script is over-packed with long conversations about the society's complicated set-up, and the Bureau has its own set of issues. Some of this information provides welcome context to the earlier films, but the screenwriters also hold back a lot of key details for next time, so this episode is oddly inconclusive. And that also makes it feel dull and contrived, especially since it leaves the characters' motivations so badly muddled. There's also the problem that these movies continually steal ideas and imagery from other films (this time it's Mad Max and The Truman Show).

Singer/actress Zoe Kravitz was immortalised on the album cover of a Kenny Loggins disc when she was a child.
The Lolawolf frontwoman and daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz appears in the painted artwork for the Footloose singer's 2000 children's album More Songs From Pooh Corner aged around 12 years old.
In the painting, two children are sat around a campfire listening to Kenny, who is wearing a poncho, while castles and unicorns are depicted floating in the sky.
Zoe, 27, appeared visibly embarrassed when U.S. talk show host Jimmy Fallon brought the vinyl album cover out during The Tonight Show on Tuesday (15Mar16) and she tells Questlove, real name Ahmir Thompson, from house band The Roots to keep quiet, saying, "Ahmir, not a word out of you!"

Zoe Kravitz is looking for a new film project she can turn into a family affair with her mum and dad.
"I would love to produce and write and I've just started a collective with a group of friends of mine, who I think are really talented, where we could write a script together," she tells WENN. "I have so many friends who are artists and actors and writers, directors and I think, 'Why aren't we making things together?'
"I've never worked with my parents before and I would love to. It's never really been a serious conversation. I've got my own stuff right now and they've got their own stuff going on..."

Zoe Kravitz credits designer Alexander Wang with helping to transform her into a style icon, because she actually knows very little about the fashion world.
The X-Men: First Class star is the daughter of trendsetting rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, but she confesses she would still be stuck in her "awkward" style phase if it wasn't for her pal Wang.
"You've helped me grow up in a lot of ways - especially in the fashion world," she told Wang in a new cover interview for Teen Vogue magazine. "When I met you, I wasn't working that much. As I got older, my career was picking up, and I had to figure out how to present myself. I was a weird person and was wearing my DIY shoes.
"You appreciated my uniqueness when I don't think a lot of people did, but you loved me enough to gently nudge me. I needed someone to say, 'You're a woman now. Dress like a woman.' I don't like tight clothes and wasn't comfortable in my body. I was in this awkward phase, and you really helped and pushed me when I needed it."
