If maternity hair were a thing, we're 100% sure that Blake Lively would be the best at it. The mom-to-be has one of the most glorious manes on the planet and is a continual source of styling inspiration to anyone with long hair.

Partly to celebrate Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' great news (and mostly for our own selfish desire to fawn over those perfect golden locks) we've put together a list of 5 of Blake's best ponytails.

If you feel like your go-to pony could use a revamp, Blake has all the styling ideas you'll ever need!


As you can tell, Blake Lively is a huge fan of braids, and braided ponytails have become something of a red carpet staple for her. With plenty of texture and a bunch of different braid techniques available, this style is incredibly versatile and can be worn everywhere from the gym to a swanky soirée.

Styling tip - Spray the pony with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spay and muss with your hands before braiding. This will create a messy, bed head texture.


At the Met Gala in 2013, Blake was spotted with a playful bubble pony that is as much fun to style as it looks like it is to wear!

Styling tip - Use a volume-enhancing shampoo and conditioner to maximize lift and body before you style this pony.


Like the rest of us, the appeal of a simple, sleek ponytail is something Blake understands. If you're in a less is more state of mind, this look could be perfect for you!

Styling tip - Get an ultra sleek finish with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
