Blake Lively Long Wavy     Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

With her tumbling blonde locks, large feline eyes and a fabulous set of lips, Blake Lively has the perfect canvas to flaunt her sexy, modern look. Her typical hairstyle is worn super long, tousled and voluminous. She adds body with loose waves rather than using the flat iron, which not only gives her long mane bounce but also saves it from hair damage. Blake usually sports a messy side hair part with lots of hair volume at the crown for a carefree windblown look, which also matches her trendy fashion sense and vivacious personality.

Blake was a knockout at the New York premiere of "Rocket Science" thanks to this simple style. Her long hair was kept smooth at the top and layers were added from her mid-lengths to her ends and were ruffled to create a sexy look. With this style, her front layers were designed to sit off her face to allow her face to shine and to create fullness around the edges of her haircut.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.


2. Part to the Right

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your right eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even right part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.


3. Section Hair

step 3

It is always a good idea to work in sections. This will help to make your hair styling quicker, easier to follow and more orderly. Comb your hair out and place your hair up into four equal sections, two in front and two in back, starting from ear to ear.


4. Use a Large Radial Brush

step 4

A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.


5. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back

step 5

Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.


6. Blow-dry and Flick Left Side

step 6

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in an outwards direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Repeat this step and then once the roots are dry, drag the brush to the mid-lengths and then slowly turn the brush in an inwards direction, flicking it through the ends.


7. Blow-dry and Flick Right Side

step 7

Take a section of your hair from your ear to your temple that is the same diameter as the brush. Place your brush on top of the hair starting at the roots and pull the hair slowly in an outwards direction with your blow-dryer following in front. Repeat this step and then once the roots are dry, drag the brush to the mid-lengths and then slowly turn the brush in an inwards direction, flicking it through the ends.


8. Blow-dry Hair Under to the Right

step 8

Take a section of your hair no wider than the diameter of your brush. Place your brush under and at the roots of your section. Then with your blow-dryer above, drag the brush up through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair following with your blow-dryer and pulling the hair to the right. Repeat until your hair is completely dry.


9. Blow-dry the Sides Under

step 9

To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.


10. Piece the Ends Using Wax

step 10

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.


11. Softly Flick Sides Using Wax

step 11

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips, and then starting about halfway down the hair shaft, pinch and drag the hair in a downward motion before flicking the ends out. Remember not to apply too much wax as it will weigh your hair down.


12. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 12

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.


13. Apply Hairspray

step 13

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
