L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Blake Lively and her gloriously wavy mane are one of our favorite sources of summer hairstyle inspiration. Whether she wears it loose, all up or half-up and half down, Blake's hair always looks incredible. We really love this half-up wavy style, and if you do too, you can copy it by following the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply a matte texturizing heat protectant like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout. Mist it evenly from roots to ends to prevent heat damage.

Step 2

Take a section of hair, twist it, and blow dry the twist all the way. Hold each piece of hair by the ends as you dry it - there's no need for a hairbrush with this blowout!

Step 3

Once dried, scrunch in some more texturizing spray and shake your fingers through your hair to break up the waves a bit.

Step 4

Spritz the roots on top of your head with a volumizing hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, lift it in sections, and gently backcomb to add some height.

Step 5

Gather the top layers of hair at the back and secure with bobby pins. Bump the hair forwards a little as you pin it to enhance the volume on top.

Step 6

For long lasting hold, and to prevent flyaways, complete the look with plenty of hairspray.
