The actress and model, who is best known for playing Zoey on the hit sitcom, is building up a reputation as quite the fashionista. Yara's flawless skin and signature curls make her stands out on the red carpet, and the starlet shares that she has a very minimal routine when it comes to her haircare.

"I love Mint Almond Oil. It’s perfect for hydrating curls, and it’s nice to use after a long day of wearing tonnes of hair product on set - it feels like I’m taking a break and just caring for my hair. You don’t need to spend a lot on hair products,” she told Stylecaster.com.

The 17-year-old has recently been tapped to appear in Gap's new Bridging the Gap fashion campaign, which celebrates stars of a diverse range of ages and cultural backgrounds. And Yara chose to rock her natural curls in the ads, following on from advice from her parents.

"Having my parents emphasise how important it is to be true to who I am, and having them love how much I love my natural curls, means a lot," she said.

When it comes to her everyday routine, Yara explains that she uses very few products and tends to simply dab only a little concealer. She'll also use a glossier on her eyebrows.

"There’s nothing wrong with a full brow, but I love product that keeps your brows in place, adds a little colour to them, and you can do it in seconds," the star added.
