Blake Lively has awesome hair which is something we're all perfectly aware of. Her tresses are just ridiculously pretty and, fortunately for us, often styled in some very covetable 'dos. For those of you with long locks of your own, we've handpicked three of Blake's best summer hairstyles, all of which are surprisingly easy to imitate.

Sure, we can't give you a starring role in a cult TV show, a diary full of glamorous red carpet invitations or a burgeoning movie career... but we can help you on your way to gorgeous hair!

Make a mess

Recently, the former Gossip Girl did a photo shoot with a messy half-up hairstyle. As far as bad hair day cures go, this one is definitely up there with our favorites now!

To style: Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Take a large chunk, twist it then blow-dry. Repeat on the rest of your hair. Once dried, spray your new waves with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray then muss with your hands. You can tease with a fine-tooth comb to get a fluffier texture. Pin the top layers back into a half-up style then mist with hairspray one last time.


Sticking with the tousled theme, Blake is also very adept at styling a fishtail side braid. More intricate than her half-up style, this 'do still has a really laid back feel which is just perfect for a carefree summer look, even if the braid technique is a little tricky (read: not so carefree) the first time you do it.

To style: Scrunch Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse through damp hair then rough blow-dry. Once dried, part your hair on side with your hands then gather all your hair over one shoulder. Divide the lengths into two halves then fishtail braid all the way down. Secure at the ends with small hair tie and mist the whole style with Bold Control Hairspray.

Pretty bubbles in the [h]air

At the Met Gala in 2013, Blake hit the red carpet with one of the prettiest ponies ever – not because it was on her head, but mainly because it had bubbles in it. If you're looking for an interesting, original style to pair with a ball gown, you've found it.

To style: Gather your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Camouflage the tie with a small section of hair from the pony and pin it underneath. At 2" intervals, secure more hair ties down the length of the ponytail, camouflaging each one. Pull the bubbles out a little bit with your hands then spray liberally with Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

Which style will you try first?
