L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador Blake Lively is at once glamorous, chic and in possession of great hair. As a result of all of these things, she is a great source of hairstyle inspiration, especially when it comes to sleek Hollywood waves. This is a look that has defined red carpet beauty for decades, becoming a synonymous with silver screen sirens and inspiring people all around the globe to try the look at home.

In keeping with this rather beautiful tradition, we have a tutorial to get Blake's version of this hairstyle. It's actually quite a simple process, despite the polished, ultra-sophisticated results!

You'll need:

Tail comb
Elastic Curl Mousse
Strand Smoother Serum
Large curling iron
Weather Control Hairspray

Step one

Use a tail comb to define and extreme side part, apply Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair and blow-dry using a hairbrush.

Step two

Work Strand Smoother Serum through your hair, paying special attention to the lower two thirds of your tresses. Then, use a large curling iron to create big waves, working in medium-sized sections. After each curl is done, roll it up and pin into place on your head while it cools.

Step three

For the sections of hair around your face, curl hair outwards, à la Farah Fawcett.

Step four

Let down the curls and run your fingers gently through them. To get Blake's ultra-smooth finish, run a brush lightly through the hair for a more unified wavy look.

Step five

Lock your style into place and protect it from the elements using a generous amount of Weather Control Hairspray.

After all that, you're done! Now all you need is a fancy pants Gossip Girl wardrobe to go with your new hairstyle...
