From the article : Blake Lively goes vintage at the CFDA Fashion Awards: 1960s hair tutorial
Blake Lively has some kind of innate talent when it comes to working a red carpet, helped by the fact her infamous blonde tresses are some of the best in showbiz. Those long locks are almost as admired as she is, and they certainly proved their glamorous credentials during the Cannes Film Festival last month! More recently, Blake has been giving Fashion's finest a run for their money at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
Dressed in a Michael Kors shift dress, the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson put a vintage spin on her look with a voluminous 1960s hairstyle and accompanying retro accessories. If you would like to try Blake's swinging sixties style yourself, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below...
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Step one: After washing and towel-drying your hair to remove excess moisture, spray Blow Out HeatSpray evenly throughout.
Step two: Blow-dry the hair in sections, wrapping the hair all the way around a barrel brush and gliding the brush through to the ends as the hair dries. When the curl falls off the brush, gather it loosely in the palm of your hand and spray with Fine Control Hairspray then leave it alone while it cools. This will lock in the wave, helping your blowout to last longer.
Step three: Once all of your hair is dry, brush it through then spray the roots on top and at the crown of your head with High Lift Creation Spray. Back-comb the hair with a fine-tooth comb to build volume – this is what gives this style its vintage feel.
Step four: Smooth the hair back off your face with a headband. Ideally, make like Blake and keep things simple with a monotone ribbon or Alice band.
Accessorize with some silver hoop earrings, plenty of bangles and a kiss of pink lipstick, and you're good to go!
