Blake Lively Hair Tutorial

If you’ve been admiring Blake Lively’s hair on Gossip Girl, you’re not the only one. Her hair style is fast becoming the number one requested cut in salons. Want to know how to get those sexy waves? I’ve put together a little tutorial.

Prep your hair by using a moisturizing shampoo like Kerastase Bain Satin 2. You’re going to be using heat styling, and you want your hair to be soft and silky. You’ll keep your long locks manageable and in good condition.

Gently towel dry your hair. Don’t rub – just blot or pat hair. You can wrap your head in the towel for a few minutes if you’d like. While your hair is still damp, spray the roots with a root lift spray. You want volume with this hairstyle. Blow dry your hair, starting with the roots to create ultra volume.

While your hair is drying, heat a curling iron. If you have longer hair, use a two inch. For shorter hair, use a one inch curling iron. At random, take sections of hair on each side and curl your hair away from your face. After you’re done with the sides, start on the back. Working at random again, take sections of hair and wrap them around the curling iron to curl in different directions.

Put a pea sized amount of Chi Silk Infusion in your palm and rub it between your hairs. Apply it to the ends of your hair, avoiding the roots. This makes your hair soft and silky, but doesn’t reduce your volume. If you have split ends, this will make them look healthier.

Without brushing or combing, pull your hair to the back of your head in a big bun and secure with hair pins. Leave it like this while you’re putting your makeup on or finishing getting ready. It will set your hair and give you a little extra volume. After you take your hair out of the bun, you can tease the roots a little bit for even more volume. Set with a finishing spray.

Voila! You’re done!
