Sleek and stylish all the way
Either Blake Lively’s got a perpetual case of greasy hair, or she’s working on a new signature style.
Whatever the reason, the Gossip Girl star rocks the slicked-back look like no-one’s business, making it look chic, effortless and totally red carpet-worthy.
So the next time you a.) can’t be bothered to wash your locks, b.) need to disguise a bad hair day, or c.) strut your stuff down the red carpet (what? A girl should always have goals…), channel Ms Lively and you’ll be guaranteed to be hitting a hair trend right on the...erm…head.
Here’s how to recreate Blake’s signature style:
1.) If your hair is relatively clean, work some smoothing serum through your roots and down towards your ends. (Try: Clairol Herbal Essences None Of Your Frizzness Smoothing Serum). If your hair is greasy – good for you, no product needed!
2.) Tip your head upside-down and pull your strands towards the crown of your head, gathering them into a high ponytail.
3.) Still holding your hair, stand upright and make sure your root area is well slicked back and devoid of any bumps or fly-aways, before securing your ponytail in place with a snag-free elastic band. Try: Lady Jayne Elastics – Snagless.
4.) If you want to get creative you can then plait your ponytail, wind it around the base of your hair elastic and fasten with bobby pins to create a braided bun.
5.) Finish with a spritz of shine-enhancing finishing spray. Try: Aveda Brilliant Hairspray.
