If you're looking for effortlessly beautiful, summer hairstyle inspiration, Blake Lively is your girl. With her trademark tousled waves and seemingly carefree approach to hairstyling, you could certainly do a lot worse than follow her lead. To show you exactly what we're talking about, we've handpicked five of the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson's best summer hairstyles to inspire you.
You know, just in case you didn't already know Blake is basically queen of all things sunkissed, blonde and gorgeous...
1. Loose, textured waves
The classic Blake Lively look, textured wavy hair, is a the epitome of summer beauty. It's easygoing and full-bodied, but not frizzy or over styled. What's not to love about this hairstyle?
Recreate Blake's waves on your own mane with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Apply it to dry or damp hair, twist a section, and blow dry it completely, then repeat this process all around your head.
2. Braided updo
If you want a more romantic summer hairstyle, try Blake's adorable braided updo instead. Not only is it super pretty, it'll also do a really good job of keeping your hair up and off the back of your neck when the weather's really hot.
Braided updos work best with dirty hair, so all you need to do is spritz your roots with dry shampoo before styling. Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray will absorb excess oil and revive your tresses between washes.
3. Messy side ponytail
Less is definitely more when it comes to summer hairstyles, and this easy side pony more than proves it. With tumbling waves and a sweeping side part, it's just an effortlessly beautiful look.
To get big, cascading waves, use a 1" curling iron, and set with plenty of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long lasting hold.
