  • Recreate Blake Lively's updo from The Age of Adaline NYC premiere after party

Blake Lively is currently in promotion mode for her latest film, The Age of Adaline, which is keeping her super busy... but not too busy to pull off two great hairstyles in one night! At the New York City premiere last week, the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson hit the red carpet with perfect Hollywood waves, before switching to a chic updo for the after party.

To recreate her after party hairstyle, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with dry hair, spritz your locks with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. Use a comb to get even coverage for the best heat protection. Straighten your hair in sections.

Step 2

When your locks are totally straight, smooth some hair oil through the ends to nourish and add shine.

Step 3

Section off the hair on top and spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Massage the roots with your fingertips to add height. You can also use a fine-tooth comb to tease the hair if necessary.

Step 4

Gently sweep the hair on top into a small bouffant and secure at the back with pins.

Step 5

Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail, but when you pull it through the elastic for the last time, stop halfway so you get a loop. Twist the loop around until it falls flat, with the holes at the sides. Wrap the loose ends around the hair tie to camouflage it, then pin it underneath.

Step 6

To complete the look, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. This will add shine and tame flyaways for a glossy finish.
