Blake Lively is known for her acting talent, great sense of style and beautiful hair. This makes her a great source of hairstyle inspiration, especially her bubble pony from the Met Ball 2013. It was a look that brought the humble pony right up to date with some extra detail and volumized texture.

With a few simple styling techniques and the right products, this hairstyle is very easy to recreate at home, whether you have a party to go to or just want to expand your ponytail repertoire!

You'll need:

Brush or comb
High Lift Creation Spray
4 hair elastics
Bobby pins
Bold Control Hairpsray

Step one

Starting with dry hair, apply High Lift Creation Spray to roots and along the lengths.

Step two

Sweep hair back into a high pony and secure with a hair elastic. Wrap a small strand of hair around the base of the pony to hide the elastic and secure underneath with a bobby pin.

Step three

Tease the pony using a brush and apply more High Lift Creation Spray. This can be done with either a brush or a comb, whichever you feel most comfortable using.

Step four

Tie another hair elastic around the pony about two inches down from where you secured it. Pull out the hair between the two elastics to create volume and use a strand of hair from the lower part of the pony to hide the second one. You can either tuck the strand into the hair elastic or secure with a bobby pin underneath.

Repeat this step twice more until you have three bubbles.

Step five

Spray a generous amount of Bold Control Hairspray and use your fingers to scrunch and shape the bubbles until you have just the amount of volume you want.

Et voilà, you have a gorgeous, movie star inspired hairstyle all of your own!
