Blake Lively and her long blonde mane are a constant source of hairstyle inspiration. Take this half-up wavy style that the former Gossip Girl wore a little while back - it's pretty, it's chic and it even has a little vintage twist thanks to the added volume at the crown. Half-up 'dos like this one can be worn just about anywhere because they're styled enough to let people know you made an effort but not too styled.

Whether you need a new hairstyle to wear to work, to a wedding, to a party, or, well, anywhere, look no further! Just follow the easy tutorial below to get the look...

Step one

Brush your hair through then spray it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Bold Control Hairspray. Pay extra attention to the roots then massage the top and crown of your head with your fingertips. This will lift the hair and help to create some added volume.

Step two

If you want more height on top, use a fine-tooth comb to gently tease the hair near the root, taking care not to rip through it as you back-comb.

Step three

Loosely gather the top layers back and pin, bumping the hair forward slightly as you secure it.

Step four

Take a medium-sized curling iron and curl the rest of your hair. The High Lift Creation Spray you applied earlier acts as a heat protectant so you're perfectly ok to go right ahead and start curling without any extra products.

Step five

Use a wide-tooth comb to break up the waves and gently pull some pieces loose at the front to frame your face. Then, spray your hair liberally with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go!
